The S and P 500 is used by Morningstar as a benchmark for CGMFX, and an abundance of other funds. As I have stated in the past, it has been downhill for FX ever since he started the hedge fund. That being said, the future cannot be predicted, but perhaps he will regain his hot performance of over a decade ago. Iggy.
As of Aug. 19, 2014, rounded to nearest whole #: Past 12 mo. FX 14% and S and P 23%. Past 3 yr FX 17% and S and P 23%. PAST 5 YR: FX 9% and S and P 17%. Past 10 yr. FX 9% and S and P 8%. Past 15 yr. FX 15% and S and P 5%. As for year to date: FX -1% and S and P +9%/
Juan, I hope I hope I am not being repetitive, but have you ever visited the Alhambra in Spain? Gorgeous palace built by the Moors when they controlled most of Spain. (until evicted via warfare from Spain during the time of Queen Isabella.
Very well could be.........seems to apply to the game of pool (billiards) at times in my experience. Iggy.
Schlumberger....the giant of oil service companies.........have owned it for some time......it has done well.............Barron's story projects possible 50% upside and it might be a good time to add a little. Guten nacht, Iggy.
Al Gore climate activist and Nobel Peace Price winner is suing Al Jazeera, owned by the royal (oil and more oil) family of Qatar. Mr. Gore, who sold his Current TV channel in a 500 million dollar deal, is upset as he claims in the suit Al Jazeera, yes the "more recent" channel, is holding back on the sum of 65 million dollars, which is in escrow. Main source: USA Today amongst several others. After all, a deal is a deal, heh.
Pretty good rant and well said. Now watch the other side call him an Uncle Tommmmm because he has his own opinion which he formed over time. I find Dr. Ben Carson a candidate who, if really who he appears to be, a UNiFIER for this country rather than the divider we have now.
Hmmmm, must be a video of this. I searched The Huffington Post to no avail. There was a similar story about this in late July. Where can I view or listen to this? Fox records video of other networks, so there must be one out there.
There is no comparison to ISIS and Americans of the past century. Without the US involved in WW2 the Brits and possibly North Americans would be ruled by the Reich. Imo, many cannot appreciate this country's good points until they have lived as alien visitors in other countries.
Stating translated: "We will bury you!" After watching the History channel or somesuch channel about who made Stalin's demise look like natural causes, it was stated, in the same program that Stalin used to make Krushchev dance for him and the crowd in the room, LIKE A STUPID CLOWN, or court jester, if you will. Still, the hypothesis is, it was not Nikita, even though he was the successor after Stalins demise.
Rivvir, I realize you and Juan are at odds, but you both have good logic when you allow it to prevail. I repeat, in more strident terms, we are dealing with religious fanatics who openly state they want to destroy us. Its 21st Century mindset against 15th century mindset.
You really do not get it imo. This group (ISIS) beheads people for the slightest differences. I doubt Juan or rivvir or anyone else on this site really wants similar results, like YOUR or MY HEAD on a pike. These people (ISIS) are truly devoted to their beliefs, even though it is the way of thinking of both sides during several hundreds years ago Crusades. (That is Christian and Muslim). Ever been to the Alhambra in Spain? if not I suggest you walk through it after reading some American Washington Irving (Sleepy Hollow, amongst other works), who was quite fond of the gardened palace..........
Despite the bickering on this board, I think there is something we likely would unite on together when things come down to life and death.......And that is ISIS............This Islamic group is totally committed to their way or your dead. They have blown up any remnants of any different religious or philosphical views. Including different Islamic mosques, Jonah's tomb, (yes that Jonah with the whale), and any remnant of past civilizations which does not fit their version of religious perfection. We in America, imo, live in HOBBIT LAND, and Tolkien readers or movie goers understand this, and it might be time for both libs and conservatives to unite a bit more on some things, because these people mean business. Remember the NAAAAAAAZZZISSSSSSSSS? Same idealogy with blind intent and fervor.
You are ignorant of historical facts. Keep raving you nimrod..................
ISIS hard at work, got them surrounded (ISIS source: MSNBC says there dead meat if they come down, unless they join THE CALIPHATES religious views.. People alreadly dying from thirst and hunger. Airlifts of H20 and food being dropped by USA. (escorted by F 16s. The 64 dollar question: will the slaughter begin, or not, and if it does will it go to completions without interference from the Big O? ISIS is so bad they get into the sheet with Al quaeda. Lets see what happens.......................O is President for some years now. Spare me blaming Bushie or Cheney. on this topic/ Time to see what the Prez is made of ...............right now................................
Average annual return for last 5 yr. for FX is above 7%. Average annual return for the S and P 500 index is above 16%. Heebner did start a hedge fund 5 or 6 yr. ago. Perhaps it does better. Morningstar has FX has a ONE STAR fund based on more recent past performance. I might add FX is currently close to 5% negative ytd while the 500 index is at least a few percent to the positive.
Thanks, I was interested in the Honda Element until I realized they quit making them. Even had a rubber/vinyl floor for easy cleaning. Closest thing I can find Honda makes now is the CRV and Odyssey. I am going to look at the Subaru Outback. Check out the Youtube video on "Stealth Van" with they guy with the black and red (as I recall) NY teeshirt. Incredibly good job done by the guy on the interior. Everything first rate. Anyway thanks for the input challenge. Guten Nacht.
Evidently CFO Widmark recently bought 7000 shares (over 1 million $) of Core Labs..... He got it in the 140s. If it gets in Morningstars 5 star buy range, around $137, could be one to examine.............It was over 220 this spring. According to M. 10K invested in CLB 10 yr. ago would have compounded to well over 150K. (past performance, as always, is no guarantee of future returns, heh)
