"Socialist Venezuela Collapsing Under Its Own Weight.
Inflation rate at 720%. People are starving."
Random is only aware of one socialist country.
Tune in again next time for another episode of "Adonis10032: Retroactive Genius".
"On one level the notion that we have much of an effect on things seems typically arrogant of man in general and experts in particular."
Until you understand that it doesn't take much of an effect on things to destroy humanity. We exist within a narrow band of temperature.
"Think of the ICE AGE....did man cause that too ?"
Buzz, the existence of non-man-made climate change does not preclude the existence of man-made climate change.
"I am dipping my toes with 300 shares at $25.50"
The stock is down, and will continue to be down, for as long as the retail investors who buy 300 shares remain infatuated with the 'bargain'.
"aapl, that kinda applies to all your posts."
Interesting. Tell us how it applies in the post to which you are replying with that comment.
"Know one cares what this give away jerk thinks."
Speaking purely analytically here, Nyner: at least 1000 times more people care about what Elizabeth Warren thinks than would care if both of us died in our sleep tonight.
"North Korea has income equality. Venezuela has income equality."
Random is the king of ignoring all variables except the one he thinks makes his point.
"then you could add likeabilty to your posts."
He's not running for class president. I'm interested in information, not an enhanced interpersonal experience.
"It seems to have some support around the mid-24 dollar range. The danger of staying short for too long is the quick 10-20% upturns that can come at any given moment."
As long as retail is this infatuated, there is no danger for shorts and no reliable support.
"You can get lucky being long or short on this one but that luck doesn't last either way."
The shorts' luck has lasted a very long time. And will continue to last while there are so many retail investors who think this is a bargain just because it used to be $250.
"If buzz worked then he paid into medicare. It seems pretty likely that neither SS or medicare taxes are high enough to cover all the benefits being given out by our most gracious elected officials. Its more like poor governess than socialism."
So socialist programs are not socialist if Buzz paid taxes. Thanks, learning a lot here.
Confused, Buzz. In one post you say "Something has to be done to save Medicare" and in the next you trash socialism. Which is it?
"buy'em when nobody wants em"
This logic was used at 90, 80, 70....20, 15, 10, and now 9. The flaw is that just because a stock is down, doesn't mean 'nobody wants em'. Retail still loves the stock because they think it's a bargain and they think they're being contrarian.
"He is a total disgrace and failure."
Hyperbole of the times. Everyone turns the President they didn't vote for into a dictator/catastrophic failure/spawn of satan. Obama led America with intelligence, class, and decency through a turbulent period.
