Harnessing Volatility & More Random Musings

September 29, 2010 – Comments (10) | RELATED TICKERS: NTWK , WMT , ARNA

I figure that it will probably be easiest to continue to post links to my Motley Fool articles here as well. People apparently want articles/blogs from me and my blog is one place to look for a history of all of those articles. I recently did a write up on using beta to your advantage which can be found here.   [more]

Tropical Storm Housing - Forecast: Category 5 Hurricane

September 08, 2010 – Comments (24) | RELATED TICKERS: BZH , TOL , LEN

I can only remember one time on Motley Fool CAPS where I have completely disagreed with FloridaBuilder and that was over the intermediate-term outlook for PrivateBancorp probably something short of a year ago. As I look at the state of things right now everyone is trying to be a pioneer and run out in front of the pack calling tops and bottoms. No one, and I mean no one, has more right to do so in the homebuilding sector than FB. He more than accurately predicted which builders would fail and which would live to dance on the carcasses of their fallen brethren. I am, however, extremely skeptical of his most recent call that housing has indeed bottomed. I am pretty confident that he's jumping the gun just a bit on the national economic data and focusing on a few specific areas to get his data ( though this is my theory, not hard evidence so don't get too excited that I get to look over FB's shoulder as he writes these blogs ). Do I really have any room to speak on homebuilding? Probably not as I'm not in the business and he seemingly has been for decades, but I'm going to present (or should I say regurgitate) the facts yet again as to why housing has yet to see a bottom.  [more]
