BO expressed regrets that Sony Pictures did not speak with him prior to canceling the scheduled release of "The Interview." Obama fired verbal shots over the brow of North Korea and dictator Kim Jong Un while vowing to respond appropriately to the infiltration of the movie studio and the retraction of the satirical film.
The obvious retaliation is cyber-attack NK facilities, but I am not aware of anything they have that worths hacking.
A number of police departments, including LAPD, are getting new cameras that can record everything the cop does and says. We paid $150M for 800 units, or $1800 each.
What can these cameras do that a $50 smart phone cannot?
I compared the performance of the 3 IO companies. Investors receive 12% gain by holding onto VALE, far below DOW and spider.
Remember when GM went BK, many small suppliers went belly up? They trusted GM and believed that it was TBTF.
Since the end of the Civil War, USA has been the biggest economy entity. Every country trusts US$ and believes that USA is TBTF. Enters BOBO.
I had an African American secretary. Contrary to all the labels and having a happy face all the time, she is one of the best workers.
Why should we care? Let us keep discriminating all the Chinese Americans for the acts of a few individuals. If we cannot better them in universities, at least we can fake better than them. Good enough for government works.
I see that everybody is attacking McCall because he switched to strong sell. How about everybody put down in writing their prediction of VALE stock price at the end of Jan 5, 2015? My guess is $7.
What do you mean by "we should get some for BO"? After attending the APEC, BOBO discussed with the X-man and Capt. P. He made the executive decision to increase USA population by 1.5%.
You hit the nail right on the head. On 1 hand, we want better, faster and cheaper. On the other hand, we do not want to hire Russian and Chinese Americans.
The Orion project is $10B just to build a capsule. The entire China Lunar project is $1B.
If "repairable skin" means in-flight self-curing of minor damage(s), it can be accomplished easily with honeycomb. If "repairable skin" means usage of robotic or 3D printing to cure minor damages, the technologies need some development. The big question is the cost and weight. We should develop disposable fighter jets that are cheaper than the hostile incoming missiles.
I just did some comparison, and Brazil probably is the problem. FCX and CEO are almost identical, but VALE dropped 10% more.
The price jumped above the MA(13) that is good. The +DI and -DI gap got a lot closer and that is good. However, -DI remains above +DI and that is very bad.
Based on what I saw at China, her economy remains very strong and there were constructions everywhere. Jobs were easy to find though pay was low. I believe that China intentionally slowed down the economy to control inflation. Her demand of IO is still there, but do not make unreasonable expectation. I do not believe VALE is going to BK, and when it recovers, I expect/demand 2X to 3X profit to justify for my risk.
Brazil is going to be problematic and you probably know more about that than I do.
The key issue is interest rate. Strong US$ is killing VALE. Lowering interest rate at US, China and Japan should help.
JMHO. Stay cool and wait for the right opportunity. There should be plenty of them.
I notice that there are a lot of attacks on McCall, and that he flip/flop his position since Sept. This is the difference between good and bad investors. You cannot and should not love a stock.
A lot has changed since Sept, in particular the strength of US$. A strong US$ is very bad for VALE since the debts are in US$. The sales are dropping and interest payments are rising. All the bad news for VALE are not in, and more bad news are coming, unless Obama increases spending to weaken US$. At this point, there is no catalyst for VALE to go up, and therefore it is a speculative stock. I am watching it tightly because I think that it can double or triple, unless it BK first. Hope this is not another Government Motor.
Basically TSMC gets 80% of the A9 contract, and SuperMor is aiming to beat INTC. However, this will happen only if the rabbits do not win the election.
During APEC, China shut down most air-polluting factories. Now that APEC is over, the smog quickly returns, and visibility at Beijing is down to 100m. That is right, every aircraft there is stealth.
