Just caught the Bloomberg interview with Lutnick. Every time I listen to Howard's ideas, I want to buy more BGCP. Cantor and BGC sell their clients good stuff. They didn't jam subprime down client's throats, for example. I think Howard said real estate group increased revenues 23% and profits were up over 30%. The move into real estate just looks better and better.
Barron's has discredited themselves by participating in Hedgeye's coordinated short attack on Line (and in other instances as well.) When you can't be sure whether Barron's has an agenda behind it's articles and you can't depend upon decent journalism out of Barron's--to me, there is no point in following Barron's. I haven't for a long time. One day Barron's will realize the damage to their brand, but it may be too late.
Besides the REIT sector slide, HCN is ex-dividend and experienced tax loss selling. HCN has a $15 Billion market cap. I'm looking to nibble here. If it goes below 52, I'll be more interested.
You are overestimating the rapidity of tapering. That was Bernanke's original idea, not the one being implemented. Many expect only $10 Billion every two or more months from Yellen. And it doesn't even start until January. Additionally, 1.3 MILLION people lose their unemployment benefits next week. They won't all be added to the welfare rolls. Many of them will look for work. It's a big variable. As the world economy recovers, SQM will benefit. I'm buying here. Watch what happens in January for SQM.
Some investors may think LNCO gets Berry when in fact Berry will be passed to LINE.
Ronharv, that violates wash sale rules. Read what the IRS says about buying a similar stock to the one you sell. Not saying IRS will catch it, but you are facing penalties and interest at the minimum if they do. You are dead wrong in an audit. That is a longstanding IRS rule.
Look at the chart for the last couple of years. Good chance it jumps mid to late January. Will depend upon debt ceiling process just how long before we see good upside.
