10 Companies That Need to Die or Disappear

July 27, 2010 – Comments (25) | RELATED TICKERS: RSHCQ , TSLA , TREE

Normally I'm busy picking companies that I think will outperform and writing a blog about them, but this time I thought it would be interesting to do something different. I'm perfectly aware that over the course of the past 16 months I've picked out quite a lot of shorts, but I usually do not devote entire blogs to those shorts, I just write concisely sarcastic pitches and let my minions do the work from there. This blog I've decided will be devoted to 10 companies that are either on their way out technologically, financially or simply don't deserve to survive the next few years.   [more]



Help, I've Fallen And I Can't Get Up

Yes, I know I just completely ripped off Life Alerts trademark motto and I'm sure they'll somehow seek retribution against me at a later date (or perhaps they'll just be thrilled someone remembers they exist)! Either way, the home healthcare sector has indeed fallen on hardships and is having one hell of a time getting back on its feet.   [more]



Random Musings Regarding Market Timing

July 20, 2010 – Comments (22) | RELATED TICKERS: ARNA , JGBO.DL , REV

Yes, I know, no one can perfectly time a market and I'm not saying that I can either, but over the course of the past twelve years I have definitely had a better than 50/50 chance of properly predicting the directional movement of a stock, group of stocks, or index. So don't go bursting my bubble just yet, and don't go grabbing your copy of "A Random Walk" and start waving it at the computer because that's not what I'm getting at. I'm just going to throw out a series of possibly unrelated thoughts on market timing and see if they somehow make sense by the end of this blog, ergo why this is titled "Random Musings." This will also be somewhat shorter than most of my blogs because I think I know what I want to say and it won't take seven pages to say it.    [more]

The inspiration here is all Stephen Colbert's.... he has his series of "Better know a district" so I figured why the heck not... Better Know a Stock, companies that are never followed or too small to be heard of. So here goes that 9000 part series.... =)  [more]
