I am bearish on the market and waiting for a big summer time sell off. I have my team of 200 stocks and I am just waiting...... NSTR

Arguing with Lordz on my previous post has worn me out a bit, but it is important to stay positive, build some scope and depth. 

I came across this great website.

I'm bearish too ABit,  however im looking for buying opportunities as the market drops and fear runs amuck.

We just had a difference of opinion, not much of an argument.

Ironic how your looking to remain positive while being negative on the market...

But its all good... not to argue or bicker, I just wanted to hear something else about one of my stocks, but I won't get into that again.

Nice post. Thanks for all the vids. I am bearish on the market myself, and I am also trying to stay postive. I have been reformulating my strategy (and based on how negative my score was I needed to do something to change direction). I am so disheartened about the US government's fiscal policy, the rampant printing of money / flooding of liquidity, and the obvious indifference to the decline of the USD by our policy makers. But I am optimistic that there are industries and infrastructure being built. Not in the US so much. But those industries are going to require resources and miners and refiners should benefit. World population is growing and has to be fed. Water has to be purified and distributed. I know you know all this and have posted extensively about it. But I am also optimistic that alternative energy will really start growing this time around (I know you are not a big fan and have a different opinion on the matter). But that's okay. I can have a different opinion than you on some things, but still respect your viewpoint on others. I appreciate your honesty.

Thanks man.


There are many of your picks that I like, and you have an interesting strategy. The problem is not that your strategy or your boasting of success draws the 'haters' to you. Its that when there is a difference of opinion between you and anybody, you are so vehement and vicious in responding that it just brings out arguments, even if they only started as difference of opinions. If you toned it down a bit, these discussions due to difference of opinion would be a lot more productive. I am not trying to be down on you or anybody. I am here to learn, and I still have a lot of learning to do! Keep up your picks and your blog, and I am interested in following your success.

Awesome speech by Steve Jobs. I dropped out of college (university) myself after one year. I studied psychology, but I found it too theoretical. But I somehow made it anyway... Stay positive! If you are negative, bad vibes will pull you down.

Why do you post so many videos that are about death?! Do you have a disease yourself or a friend of yours? Hey, my best friend was killed in a car accident in front of my eyes when I was 14 years old. He flew about 30 feet through the air. I felt so helpless when he was lying there in his blood. 

Anyway, I wish you all the best!

Take a look at KHD. They are internationial builders and are helping to build up the Middle East.


I am positive, gainfully employeed. Looking to aquire some real estate in a couple of years. 

Sorry about the death videos. Definately, not my intention, I did just finish reading Black Swan, so I might be a little over the top with the post. Very sorry about your friend, death helps remind us of how precious life is....
