    CalAtlantic Group, Inc (CAA)

    4 hours ago by DrGoldin (99.72) | Reply

    No love for CAA? It's my second-favorite name in residential construction right now (the top being PHM because of its superior balance sheet, which really does matter). If you like growth at a reasonable price, this one is golden.

  • Outperform
    PulteGroup, Inc. (PHM)

    4 hours ago by DrGoldin (99.72) | Reply

    Clearly I was much too early with this pick (and have left it open since 2013 because it usually doesn't pay to close out a losing position in CAPS--unlike reality), but now I think the time has come for it to make up lost ground. I took a tidy ... More

    Comcast 6.625% Notes (CCS)

    Ummm ... what? CCS is not Comcast 6.625% notes. It's Century Communities, Inc., a small-cap residential construction company based in Colorado and focused on the Sun Belt and Rocky Mountain regions. And guess what? It's cheap!

    PowerShares DB Base Metals Double Short (BOM)

    5 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    I'm not really bullish on base metals or anything. I just don't like double shorts or ETFs built on commodities. Frankly I think this thing is going to be delisted.

    UltraShort Industrials ProShares (SIJ)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    I'm thinking industrials should do just Trump-tastic until at least the inauguration. But that's not the point. The point is betting against a leveraged short ETF - nearly always a winning strategy in the long-run.

  • Underperform
    ProShares UltraPro Short Financials (FINZ)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    Ultra comes from Latin, meaning, 'on the far side of' so an 'ultrapro' is someone far away from being a pro. If you invest in these ultrapro shorts for the long-term, you are definitely far away from being a pro.

  • Underperform
    UltraShort Russell 2000 ProShares (TWM)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    Ultrashorts: From the Latin 'ultra' meaning beyond and the English 'shorts' meaning a type of leg dressing worn in warm weather. If you invest in them for the long term, that's what happens: you lose your shorts.

    UltraPro Short Russell2000 (SRTY)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    I really hope nobody thinks this is a long-term investment. For that matter, I really hope nobody thinks this is a short-term investment, unless they need to offset some capital gains. Love betting against 3X bear funds. It's kind of a hobby o... More

    Wow, the ticker to this baby tells you what kind of investment it's been. Call the vet!

    FINANCIAL BEAR 3X (FAZ)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    I like US financials and financial services, but that's not the point. I pretty much always bet against 3X bear funds.

    Direxion Shares ETF Trust Small Cap Bear 3x (TZA)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    I think the Russell 2000 is a good place to be, and 3X bear funds are bad places to be, particularly in the long-term. The way caps is run, and market correlations being what they are, this thing is nearly guaranteed to get you red-thumb points in t... More

    I just like betting against ETFs with cutesy names. I think it's kind of ridiculous. It belongs in the dot-com boom with online pet-food portals. Okay I'm kind of joking. Commodity-based ETFs are usually bad in the long-term, regardless of ... More

    ENERGY BEAR 3X (ERY)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    Not that I'm bullish on energy prices, although I don't think their going to drop precipitously, I'm just betting against a 3X bear fund. Usually a safe bet in the long term.

  • Underperform
    ProShares Trust Ultra VIX Short (UVXY)

    6 hours ago by TerryHogan (99.95) | Reply

    Look at the number of all-star underperform ratings. I guess if you wanted to be a contrarian you might give this a green-thumb, but in the long-term this is about the closest thing to a sure bet as you'll find.
