  • Where, oh where, is the bottom for the oil market? I fear that people are going to start jumping out of windows if the pain doesn't ease soon. A friend called with his favor quote to describe conditions: "If you can keep your head when those all around you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation." Loss my patience (and head) a long time ago and sold most of my position. I don't want to be an investor who averages down, but that's all that's left for some. Tax-loss selling could be heavy over the next several days. It is time for someone to ring the bell and say it's all over on the downside. Please!

  • One of the biggest oil deals of the year was the Putin-ExxonMobil partnership that got a lot of press. Has the deal been scrapped, put on the back burner or is it simmering below the headlines? This was a whopper of an undertaking and Putin needs Exxon to get it done. The biggest concern of many analysts was that Putin could not be trusted and that as soon as Exxon spent a 100 billion or more developing the project that the state would take it over and run it, like Putin did with one of the other big producers, a Russian company. Who has the latest poop? Exxon Mobil has been bashful about talking about it lately.

  • The Street knows how to render pain and suffering better than the CIA. COP, along with the other majors, is in a tail spin and averaging down is not a solution for me. There is a bottom in this energy market, but ... how much more pain can we endure? (Longs, of course) How much lower before an earnings adjustment or a dividend cut? Tell me we're near a bottom. The CIA is not the only folks who know how to torture its prisoners. They could take lessons from Wall Street!!

  • With Thanksgiving and Christmas falling in Q4 as always TFM will do well. The firm is growing almost too fast and already has 156 stores in 26 states and heavy expansion plans for 2015. Not many chain stores have expanded rapidly without making a mistake or two, but this firm has a lot of virgin territory to find the golden nuggets. Also has nice financial position to use for same. Undoubtedly, some equity firm is trying to keep the stock price down until it builds a position so it can attempt to gain control and use the financial position of the firm to pay for it. Think Milt Romney and other firms like his.

  • Fed plans to keep interest rates at record lows for a considerable time, so auto sales should continue to do well in the coming year. Not a bad time for many to get a new chariot!

  • Hard to figure book unless one has all the numbers. Should get an update on this number and it could show some improvement. Most of the long-term investors in AGNC can remember when the shares sold slightly above book.

  • Sorry to say, the chart on CREE is really ugly. Sliced through two-year supports and is looking like a major head and shoulders. It has done this previously and the results were not pretty. Due your own due diligence, but when fundamentals and technicals get nasty at the same time, it really is like trying to catch a falling knife to find a bottom. Be careful out there, folks!

  • This is the kind of non-event that Warren Buffett uses to load the wagon. He already has some shares, but he may pick up a few billion dollars more in the coming days. If he ever sells them, it will be when GM is double its current price and perhaps not until it triples no matter how long it takes.

  • My pappy told me that sales and revenue is where you get money for profits and EPS. When one sees revenue declining for so many firms and their stock prices continuing to head upward, it becomes confusing when another firm's revenue shoots up and the stock price declines. Golly, does this investment bank have a tap on the phone or is it hacking the internet lines at GM's accounting dept.? Security needs to check Mary's office for bugs, too. This is turning into a cloak and dagger caper. You folks at GM need to alert all employees for massive leaks that not all people are getting.

  • Good news, bad news or neutral? With revenue cut, how much change in earnings? Thoughts of those who follow this one closely greatly appreciate.

    In addition, look at SNH and OHI. Senior Retirement Centers will have heavy demand. Actually, over 78 million Americans will reach retirement over the next 12 years, partly because of so many baby boomers born right after WW II.
