    Critics of CEO Pay--Consider

    Also how about the excessive pay of public officials like the Comptroller of New York? You can bet public officials go home everyday at or before 5 pm, take all their many paid days off, never worry at night about their performance, have no accountability for results, work a short number of years and then take an excessive retirement package financed by taxpayers

  • Would they give up their lives and work day and night, traveling all the time, non-stop interruptions, miss most of their family life for decades in return for millions of dollars? It seems those that want to work hard and make this life choice deserve to get what they seek. Also why do the Democrats never call out the excess unearned pay of athletic figures, singers and actors? The get paid big bucks for working only part time and for short periods, unlike CEOs?? Hillary is over the hill, out of touch and she picks this type of issue to appeal to the youth--what non-leadership!

    Way to fix it is to payout to people what they put into it; so those that pay nothing get nothing.

    Then $30

  • Spend all the taxpayers' money, then borrow all you can and then spend all of the borrowed money and then villianize something that does not vote much and tax the hell out of it: examples:
    1) environmental /global warming--taxes,
    2) the 1% so called "rich."
    All so they can keep giving to buy votes and stay in office living the 1% life they all have and want! Great!

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

  • Really, really sucks if things don't go as they expect them to. Can't talk to a human to schedule a service appointment, can't set-up a user ID online, as it says you have one when you don't, you try to set up a new one and it says it won't take your email ID and instructs you to use your existing sign-in information, which doesn't exist. So F --it all, I'll go to Best Buy and use their Geek Squad. Not a Genius that set this up for Apple!

    Where Are The True News Stories?

    Then why would anyone buy negative yielding bonds and not hard assets as a store of wealth--like gold? Makes no sense that these bonds are in demand with bad credit ratings and gold languishes--explain that. Coal and oil brought man out of the dark and cold. They make life worth living and raise people out of poverty. However, the rich left that never went without anything, sing to a different luny tune.

    Buy Yahoo before spin--it makes a lot of sense.

  • Federal Reserve coordination with other central banks have spent billions keeping gold down, shorting gold stocks and planting news everyday for over two years of gold's demise. It worked.... Now working on fossil fuels. The Administration did a great job bankrupting coal. This also must mean no more freedom of speech or press.... Who doubt's all this?

  • U.S. money in billions, military sales, a suite in the White House next to the President, a promise to buy all their oil and provide humanitarian aid to all that ask for it in the Middle East. The President drew the line when they asked for NCAA Final Four tickets. Don't worry, he will have the Federal Reserve print some fake tickets and we will have a deal!

  • U.S. Government has over $16 T in debt. Notwithstanding, they give my hard-earned money to others, via direct tax credits to individuals buy cars powered by electricity produced from coal. Dems support fake green in return for votes and they vote goodies for fake greenies and taxpayers lose. Too bad some liberals are too stupid to see this scam--mostly the young indoctrinated in environmental BS in public schools starting at age 5! Any power alternative has to be sustainable without government subsidies and this is not it! Enough already with Musk and other snake oil salesmen.

  • Strange how Yahoo news has had a news story about every day screaming that oil is going to fall --I have not seen one positive news story from Yahoo on oil or gold prices --wonder why that is?? This despite there are bullish cases out their for both oil and gold. Yahoo seems to be carrying someone's water in its news' slants--

    Also who were are those #$%$ claiming Yahoo was going to $60 immediately if Yahoo would just announce a spin off of its Alibaba shares. The shares sank from $50 and never looked back--SEC should do a look back to CNBC and all those others touting Yahoo as a buy then!

  • Don't buy gasoline or products from Shell on Gulf coast, Southern states and Eastern states--because the stations and products are owned by Motiva, which is 50% owned by the Arabs --the same people now busting your economies and putting you out of a job! F-em! They tried this in the 1980's also to our detriment in the U.S.! Also the other 50% is owned by Shell a Dutch/British company. By Chevron, Texaco or ExxonMobil bran-all USA!

    Sentiment: Sell

  • Which is fixed by limiting flights and seats. The do nothing Administration does what it does best--nothing. Why should they since the taxpayers pay for the legions of government employees flying?

  • Administration's FAA has done nothing about airline price gouging. Airlines have decided to coordinate the low number of fights-- why else would they all be full and overpriced! That's Obama--another middle class tax hike!

  • To cite a quote from a CEO (MA) on a different topic and made on a different date and slap it into an unrelated article on another topic --now that is journalism Chinese style! Way to go Chang!--Will a big short hedge fund give you a bonus or did they just tell you to short BABA???

  • upward2000 by upward2000 Feb 15, 2015 11:59 PM Flag

    A bit cautious on BABA--"only 40% growth"--a really stupid article. However, another article in Barron's is really bullish on Yahoo-- I'm about to give up reading Barron's. It appears to have been come mostly a rag for hedge funds to reap from average investors--my opinion only. It is certainly somewhere not to go for any real investment advice. Same for other business publications these days like Forbes. How else would they stay in business (if not for hedge funds) since the average American almost does not read anything much less buy papers to read.

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    He also compared BABA's price to sale ratio to the S&P not Amazon, Facebook or even other internet companies or techs. What a surprise--who paid him?

    Sentiment: Strong Buy

    Powerful hedge funds, had advanced news of BABA regulator notice and earnings report and when short. The can even pay for timely placed so called news stories on CNBC and for neative posters here night and day. I must admit, an impressive effort to legally steal others' money. SEC remains brain-dead. However, despite these incredible and powerful efforts, the liquidity in the markets is too high for BABA to go lower--even they can't push it down further. They are getting frustrated. A few more days to the upside and they will be gone. We will be on the way back above $100 by Q2. They are desperately worried about today's price increase. Sleep well shorts--you turds!
