Besides AAPL, do you know of any other stocks that can make some dough for all of us? May it be up or down, we will do scavanger hunt.
Please no #$%$ like $2 share will have 150 EPS next year.
Short BHI with both fists. An oildriller that this administration hates, with less of its available rigs working. Currently at 40.84-will hit the 32-30 level as a Christman present for you.
I think I know bhi. I know Obama doesn't like domestic fracking. Hmm, interesting. I will look into it and thx for the tips. This is a bear market and I am looking to short more than buying stock.
Last week I put AAPL on the chopping block, and pulled the trigger on VRNG. Small cap totally manipulated, but at present it finds itself between a favorable verdict, and waiting for final judgement against GOOG. A case against ZTE is already filed in the UK, with others pending. Reporting thus far has been inaccurate at best.
I see real potential going forward as they own patents that are the lifeblood of search, and ad placement. Everyone, and I mean everyone is stealing these patents, if you don't like them as a stand alone company, there are multiple buyers that would have a vested interest in picking them up just to own the patents.
Before you go off on a patent "troll" rant, consider that VRNG's president, and CTO Andrew Lang is the original filer of the patents, and also the former CTO of Lycos. On the board sits Don Stout, former US patent examiner, and subsequent patent attorney who successfuly sued RIMM for 600mil. Merging with VRNG gave Innovate/Protect a practicing entity presence, thereby strengthening arguments for compensatory damage for patent infrindgement.
There you go, that's enough to start your own research, or pass.
Checkout oil, WTI crude is at 86 a barrel Brent crude is at 109 a barrel, thats a 23 dollar spread, we should be at the low point, this is when it usually start a spread correction were WTI goes up and Brent drops, a single ETF is USO and a double would be UCO, i am looking to get into UCO but not heavy incase we do get a fiscal cliff issue. Check the charts
fp, good point. I also looked into crude oil, which is cheap and can be a good entry point. But as you mentioned, i am not very happy with fiscal cliff. This issue can further drop the oil, but if there is any hint of resolving the fiscal cliff then UCO or ERS (3x energy) are the best plays. ERX generally trades $50+ but now its at $44. I am thinking to buy DEC $50 options on ERX.
Fiscal cliff can actually push our economy into a minor recession. CEOs are very nervous and have started laying off employees. Don't go heavy on anything just yet.
