Trying to focus on the markets for today and each day and the economic news
A number of people have talked about such a thread. Lets see how it goes. This is where you can impart some investment wisdom to your fellow freepers. You can vent about the big one that got away. You can chime in how Obama is out to wreck American capitalism.
If you see another FR economic thread you like and want to link to it here, please do
Ping list -- on or off let me know
Please include me in your finance and investment ping list.
Speculation: the S&P Index peaks in the 1650 to 1825 range sometime between 15 May 2013 to 30 October 2014, and the following pullback from the peak results in the Big Crash below about 900 points.
I am sure our GDP would go up if we could magically annex Guatemala and make it the 51st state. But the standard of living of Americans would be dragged down a bit
By allowing in (legally-illegally) all these uneducated 3rd worlders. We are in fact annexing half of Guatemala (population 14 million) every few years
I will be watching CHK because the controversial Aubrey McClendon is stepping down effectively 4-1-13. The stock has popped 10% on this news.
Diana’s gold is slowly melting upward reversing its trend.
FIO reports after the bell. High-risk high-reward play.
I’d like to be on the ping list too please.
Yeah, Baby! :)
I’ve been happily in Lennar (Home builder) for the past year.. was thinking it might be time to exit, so I sold half just before their last earnings report 2 weeks ago.
That was a mistake. NEW ORDERS were up 32%.
There’s still a lot of “pent up demand”... to re-vise a really old phrase... in the home business.
I keep reading about over-hanging inventory. But, I think a lot of those must be dead end inner city houses. A whole bunch of young people have been living in basements for the past 5-10 years... they’ve been saving money... they WANT to live in their own house. And, they don’t want some run-down old house that’s been vacant for 5 years.
I think, I’m going to be staying in Lennar for awhile.. and, I might buy some of low-end home builders, like Pulte.
