Are you okay with volatility? Really? You sure?
One of the things that bedevils all investors is volatility. Usually, we are trying to figure out how to take advantage of it. Investors, particularly value investors, are always claiming to not care about it. It's casually dismissed as noise. It usually is. Still, it's hard to call it noise when ...
What do when you see a list like this
The Business Insider recently posted a list of 10 big companies veering towards bankruptcy. Not surprisingly consumer discretionary companies dominate the list. Without a doubt, all of these companies have serious problems. Should you go out and short these companies? No. Absolutely not. I'm not sayi...
As readers of this blog know, I've been stalking E*Trade for some time. I first wrote about this stock back in November of 2007. It looked like a baby being thrown out with the bathwater. By my reckoning, there was still a vibrant brokerage business underneath the mortgage missteps. The stock has bee...

I know that NWMT owns a chunk of CCTR, but I know nothing more. Can anyone shed a light on this relationship?
Did anyone have to hold onto or even buy additional shares of this stock when it was under$10?
Re: Airlines Can't Make You Money, Right?
The industry as a whole has never made a nickel of profit, though LUV has pretty consistently bucked this trend. I think that the airlines are fine trades. If I had to pick an airline, I'd look at Ryan Air.

Stop the spam!
Chinese stocks are still a bargain
These companies are growing and trading at low multiples, with plenty of cash on the books. Look at APY. It's still trading nearly 50% off its 52-week high. It has a PEG ration of 0.10.
Re: Please get rid of the stock touts
Does anyone police this site? There is no reason to come to this site if it's just a playground for penny stock promotion.
Problem with the site

The richest one percent of this country owns half our country's wealth, five trillion dollars. One third of that comes from hard work, two thirds comes from inheritance, interest on interest accumulating to widows and idiot sons and what I do, stock and real estate speculation. It's bullshit. You got ninety percent of the American public out there with little or no net worth. I create nothing. I own. We make the rules, pal. The news, war, peace, famine, upheaval, the price per paper clip. We pick that rabbit out of the hat while everybody sits out there wondering how the hell we did it. Now you're not naive enough to think we're living in a democracy, are you buddy? It's the free market. And you're a part of it. You've got that killer instinct. Stick around pal, I've still got a lot to teach you.
