Ever since 2009 pundits have gotten Uncle Ben wrong. Not because of what Bernanke says but by what the pundits think he really means. He said he was going to keep interest rates low for an EXTENDED period of time. I kept arguing here that meant many years because it would take as much to run through the housing foreclosures. [more]
Worked 4 out of the last 5 years. I did try to get a "buy in May and stay I say" chant going last year, but it didn't take, although in hindsight it was the right thing to do. Personally I am hoping more for a sideways moving market to consolidate gains and let earnings catch up. I suspect any dips will be bought up by those on the sidelines dying to get in.
I have been advising PVR since 2008 (along with many other MLPs and BDCs). But I always dreaded earnings day for them. They always just seemed to miss, but its yield always kept me in the company. [more]
I have blogged many times and even gotten into heated arguments with others about the culpability of Jon Corzine. I also charged that he was getting a free pass just because of who he was. The SEC, the CFTC, the US AG all leaving him alone. Finally the trustee for MF's BK is showing the guts to hold Corzine accountable. [more]
Since this was the topic of a TMF Post of the Day here: http://caps.fool.com/Blogs/boston-thoughts/817985, I am curious of other's feelings regarding the capture of Tsarnaev. Personally I thought it was important to capture him alive, mainly because there is then a chance to actually find out what the whole reason was for the bombings. If I was a victim I would want to at least know why. Killing him would probably have left too many unanswered questions. [more]
