Re: VL changes

I am paying the much larger institutional rate ever since they figured out I had a company. I am getting used to the new format, but generally go to the older format for easier navigation.

Re: Year-End Review Cross Post

Re: Year-End Review Cross Post

Appears to be a fairly heavy emphasis on MF type picks. Most of that is influenced by their philosophy that places very high value on revenue growth. Some other things as well. I am not in the pay anything (they always seem expensive but buy them [more]

Re: Fool Me Once, Shame On You...

I am not a broad market guy. I invest in specific companies buying when the price appears right and then only selling when -

Re: Fool Me Once, Shame On You...

I would suggest that is probably best not to take such an all or nothing (all in or all out/short) approach. The current market is not cheap, it is a good idea to have more cash on hand than normal, but still good to be largely invested.

PZN

Down over 30% from its high last spring. Any reason for the large drop other than it may have been overpriced at 73? I see VL thinks the next q results may be down a bit. AUM trends look ok from what I see. Not a lot of news on this [more]

Those are the kind of games that made me give up OTB chess. It is very hard to keep trying and trying when you know you are most surely going to lose. But So is a pro, and that is his job...

Re: LyondellBasell

Looking at some price information on Platts and elsewhere, ethylene prices have declined by about 30% from Jan 2014 to Jan 2015. Propylene is down about 40% if I am reading the charts correctly. HDPE prices are holding up much better declining only [more]
