    Seeking Alpha

    Who writes this crap (High School student quality)? Why does Yahoo even include this? What garbage. I'm going to find out what Yahoo requires for posts and do it because this is another great way to try and control and influence stocks.

    • I actually wrote that piece, sorry you didn't much care for it. If you want to contribute to Seeking Alpha, it's easy to do -- just submit your article and if they think it's good enough it will be edited and published, and Yahoo Finance now picks up all SA articles. My blog posts have been republished on Seeking Alpha for about a year, and for the most part they do an OK job with them, though sometimes their haste brings in some typos.

      If you truly believe that a waffling article by a small time blogger like me is what's moving this stock, I think you're deluded ... but if you believe that, read my actual blog because my posts show up there a day or two before they're on SA or Yahoo ... you could get a jump on the market and make yourself rich.

      Seriously, though, I still own my shares and am being patient for the moment with WFR -- I do think the big rampup in capacity by the two biggest companies in the industry is something we need to keep a close eye on, but I also think it's possible that the capacity will all be needed. I'm just wavering a bit because I have some nice paper profits in WFR and some regrets about not selling a few shares when it hit $48.

      Cheers,
      Travis

      Actually I thought the Seeking Alpha piece by Travis Johnson was pretty well thought out and had links to some sources I had not seen before. What part did you object to?
