investors began rotating (taking profits) out of small / to mid-cap stocks into large cap defensive issues at the beginning of the GOP Govt shut-down shenanigans. That rotation has almost exhausted itself. Normal service to be resumed presently.
most directly, the BDI measures demand for shipping capacity versus the supply of dry bulk carriers. The supply of cargo vessels is inelastic, therefore marginal changes in supply cause wild swings leading to instability throughout the shipping industry. Razor4raz is correct - the index needs to be replaced!
the Index is proving to be very flawed as a direct measurement for shipping capacity versus supply of vessels. It is simply too volatile, that even marginal changes in demand can cause the index to go haywire resulting in wild swings in shipping rates. Time for it to be replaced?
Is infested with teaparty hypocrites trashing the ACA...but guess what, these same douche bags will be cheering as Rite Aid stock enriches them because millions of new insureds will be flocking to their local drug stores to fill prescriptions they were unable to get before the ACA.
YOU DOUCHE BAG HYPOCRITES
the speed with which the seeking alpha bash came out was breath taking. The ink was barely dry on the report. It's a shame the Yahoo Finance page continues to publish them as they do a disservice to investors "seeking" honest analysis.
if you're that worried, sell calls against your stake.
and if you're really really worried, sell all your shares.
but don't wring your hands in public on a message board - it's undignified.
Don, you're so sanctimonious, it's kinda hard to give you a pass.
so, Don...you being the smartest guy on the road, took control of the situation, got out of your car and safely directed traffic around the stranded tractor trailer? But of course you didn't.
is gonna have bad things happen to him. I know 'cause my name's clare voyant, and I see around corners. WARNING Do not leave the house, Saturday (especially between the hours 2 & 7pm).
but I have one parting shot..and .fired with a great deal of satisfaction. The teaparty are done in America. They managed to make utter fools of the GOP before being finally recognized as the toxic frauds they always have been. Make no mistake, yesterday (in congress) was their Waterloo. Moreover, the ACA is is up & running and here to stay. But most of all, the racists lost to a black president who outsmarted them every step of the way. And therein lies my satisfaction.
you obviously did not attain a higher education. The Boston Tea Party was about a claim to a fundamental right: Taxation but only with representation. Nothing more. That was the extent of it. The Crown, to their eternal shame, said no. And the rest is history. Google it, if you don't believe me.
I've just removed you from my ignore list. Not sure why I had you on ignore in the 1st place. Apologies.
just another 2-3 weeks of this economic sabotage would have cost as much money as it would to fund the ACA roll-out for an entire year. So much for teaparty fiscal principles (lies). They are nothing more than political Luddite's with no legitimate agenda outside of making Obama look bad.
