The economic impact of BP spill on Florida and U.S. economy

May 28, 2010 – Comments (9) | RELATED TICKERS: BP , XOM , DIS

Everyone was in a panic when Greece was unable to pay its debts and was on the verge of going under economically as a country.   Greece's GDP is less than half of that of the GSP of the state of Florida.   As the BP spill makes its way onto the coasts and into the waters, it appears inevitable that this will have a devestating effect on the beach, fishing waters and general property value of large parts of the state of Florida.    This is a state that already is hindered by severe property value depreciation and high debt loads.   Now valuable ocean-front property that traditionally holds its value much better than inland real estate will now be devalued.   Many jobs will be lost.   Many businesses will be ruined.   Unless the government and/or BP is forced to open up the checkbook and pay for it, this could have just as terrible economic impact as it has an environmental impact.    [more]

Macro-technical-analysts? How important is 1150?

May 10, 2010 – Comments (3)

Before everything broke down and the whole world fell apart on Thursday, several analysts were talking about key points of support and resistance for the S&P, and the marker that was most mentioned is 1150.    I don't think it's a coincidence that the market found this key point of resistance/support today.    How important do you think it is that the market finishes above this marker in order for the rally to continue?      [more]



Blood in the Chinese small cap streets? Or wait for fire sale prices?

May 05, 2010 – Comments (5) | RELATED TICKERS: YONG.DL , HOGS.DL

I've been following Chinese small caps for the past couple of years, and it has been a very lucrative area to invest in.  There a lot of wonderful things going on this investment category.    The economy has been in rampant growth, especially for inwardly looking industries and alternative energy.   It has opened up all sorts of opportunities for small companies to jump in and grow quickly.    In addition, the small caps that aren't included in index funds had opportunity for huge bursts upward when a good company got discovered through uplisting or additional analyst coverage.     [more]
