  • My thought today as the shares sink downward is that I'm too old to cry and the pain doesn't go away when I laugh! Hope that most of you aren't nursing losses.

  • Did you hear the mortgage lenders discussing how sharply mortgage applications have surged in the past two weeks? Of course, 15 and 30 year mortgage rates have dropped with the declines in 10 and 30 year treasuries. Lenders seem to be expecting a big uptick in the housing market. Good many young people looking for more space because of growing families.

  • The Omaha financial wizard says buy when their is fear and sell when everyone else is elbowing their way in to get in on the 'hot' market. For WMC, this is my buy range. Buying first batch today at the current 13.46 price and may add later by averaging up or down. Even a dividend cut seems to be built in to this price. Good luck if you've got 'em. Some kind of dividend is coming soon.

  • 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.
