Making BIG COIN on this short!!!! What a sell off at the close. Closed near the lows to. Usually means more pain tomorrow.
you should take advantage of the low price of CAT. I see the SEC probe as a non-event for the most part and would even guess it to be extinguished very soon with no impact to CAT's business. Also, it pays a good dividend.
Schaeuble is FOS. Those guys have no choice but to help Greece unless they want a major part of the derivatives market to implode. Also, over 80% of Greek bail-out money never made it to the Greeks and instead went to keep EU banks, like Deutsche Bank, solvent. Schaeuble is just a big-talking SOB that seems to be forgetting this. Let Greece sink and then watch many banks like DB sink with them.
HLF is looking like a good short candidate before the Feb 26 earnings. JMHO.
Are you kidding? Putin is daring the US to send arms to the Ukraine. Once this happens, Putin engages the other proxy war that drags in Saudi Arabia and the price of oil takes off.
The BDI isn't a credible source anymore and hasn't been for a few years. Use the HARPEX.
All the talk in Silicon Valley right now is on the proposal by Barbara Boxer and Rand Paul that will give companies a tax holiday of 6.5% levy on the repatriation of their foreign earnings that are currently held offshore.
IMO, their proposal is #$%$ as it allows corporations to repatriate the money, hold it for three years and then spend it on anything they wish. Our company could easily do this and not spend one dime on R&D, hiring any employees or investing in any new business or technology.
The EU can't write-off (in finance parlance known as "restructuring") the bonds without triggering a firestorm in the derivatives market that is in excess of 100 trillion euros and is backing the sovereign Greek debt as well as the other 15 trillion in EU debt. The EU banks would blow-up.
Remember to keep in mind that before the Greek bailout the ECB swapped out all of its Greek sovereign bonds for new bonds that would not have to suffer any restructuring if it ever was imposed. And, about 80% of that bail-out money went to the EU banks that were Greek bondholders, not the Greek citizens.
Funny how the troika wants to keep bailing out Greece with more debt and that bail-out money doesn't go to the Greek citizens, but yet the Troika wants the Greek people to pay for it. Make the Greeks pay for the reckless sins of the EU banks so they don't have to go out of business like they appropriately should. Greece should tell them all to go #$%$ themselves.
I'm looking at $34-$35. I have a cousin who's son works for HAL, he establishes the well sites for drilling and he says they are preparing for oil at sub-$30. I asked what the time horizon for that price is and he said towards the end of 2015. Let's see how this plays out.
A $38.6M accrual release that does absolutely nothing for cash flows. LMFAO!
Traders are valuing those 4.3M additional subscribers at $590 per head in increased market cap. That's funny since most subscribers only pay anywhere from $96 to $205 per year in subscriber fees.
Yeah....the market is rational. LMFAO!
that gold referendum. Gold up big today and the Swiss have sunk further into NIRP.
I questioned it back when it was reported. What's your point?
My question didn't posit that. Maybe you should get up to the community college and enroll in some remedial reading classes to help you beef-up those reading comprehension skills. If you do so, it may also help you to understand the report released by the BEA. Then maybe you'd understand what mike is explaining. Sorry it went over your head.
5% GDP growth??? On revisions and.....Obamacare?
Seems to me that spending increases in healthcare aren't, how should I say.....healthy for an economy, nor an individual.
What most are forgetting is the Russia has enough USD to pay off all their sovereign debt. They don't have enough to pay off their corporate debt, but who cares, most of that is owned by US and Euro banks that will never get paid back.
I'm waiting for Russia to announce that they are selling oil in either rubles or gold. Maybe both.
