February 26, 2010 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: AVAV , IRBT , UTX

NASA wants to, and says it can, put droids on our moon in 1,000 days. That sounds good and all, but where are they going to find the money?




Name Your Favorite Large Cap That You Don't Own.

February 26, 2010 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: L , CAT , BRK-A

My favorite large cap company that I don't own is Loews Corp (L). They have taken a beating over the last two years. However they are poised to recover with their insurance and oil/natural gas business leading the way. I only wish they had a better dividend.   [more]



Bob Barr: Libertarian In Name Only

February 17, 2010 – Comments (5)

I did not like Bob Barr while he was in office as a Republican. I thought of him as a smug elitist bunghole, a slightly smarter verion of VP Joe Biden. Then he cut ties with his party. Later he joined the ranks of the Libertarian party, the one to which I belong. I found this encouraging. "Pehaps a zebra can change his stripes", I thought. There were signs in interviews that he had relaxed, become more embracing of individual liberty and the Constitution. After giving the man a chance and voting for him in the Presidential election, one he had no shot at winning, I purposly lost track of him. I had other things on which to focus.  [more]

The Great Recession Will Make Us Great.

February 15, 2010 – Comments (20) | RELATED TICKERS: CALM , LUK , SLW

I saw a television advertisement that asked the question if we are going to “remember this time as the great recession or the recession that made us great?” I normally don’t pay much attention to Madison Ave., but I believe this is a great question.     [more]



Ralph Kramden and Lorenzo Anello make more than you.

February 11, 2010 – Comments (9)

Ralph Kramden and Lorenzo Anello are not real people, of this I am aware. But John E. Nelson is a real person. What makes him so special that he probably makes more than you? Why should I let the cat of the bag when you can have all the fun reading the article? Enjoy.

Iceland: A Callus, Harsh Opinion.

February 10, 2010 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: BP , RDS-A , CVX

Normally I don't take such callus or harsh positions against a country. Please find it in your heart to forgive me for what I am about to propose for Iceland. If you are a resident of the island in question feel free to attack me with claws and teeth for what I am about to propose.  [more]



IRBT's obvious untapped market

February 10, 2010 – Comments (6) | RELATED TICKERS: IRBT , AVAV , RHT

IRBT makes robotic vacuums and gutter cleaners for the civilian market. Why not a side walk and driveway shoveler as well? You crazy folk in the mid atlantic region would sell your first born for a machine like this. Contact IRBT to let them know you want such a device. They might do something about it if the demand is high enough.  [more]



How do you say "mia culpa" in Japanese?

February 05, 2010 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: TM

I like Toyota. I really do. I believe they build a superior product, historically. As a family we own one. It has been a great vehicle. It has shuttled us all over the country in all kinds of weather without fail. We plan on keeping for a long while.  [more]

AAPL's next move, according to moi.

February 01, 2010 – Comments (1) | RELATED TICKERS: AAPL

I am going to make a bold prediction: Apple will have a iPad-like large screen HDTV, AKA: iWall, in the market in three to five years. It will operate via touch screen, a Wii-type of remote and a traditional touchpad. It will allow you to access your security system, movies, cable, internet, and music. It will have a built in digital video recorder and will also have a webcam.  [more]



Christopher Walken + Fat Boy Slim = Better Than Coffee

February 01, 2010 – Comments (4)

Today in the beginning of the work week for most of us. Caffeine is not getting the job done today. I need something a little stronger. I need this. It's my weapon of choice. ;)
