Yes, we need real private enterprise, not the capital markets monopoly that is SEC + Wall Street.

I’ve made plenty of money on stocks over the past ten years. You just have to do proper analysis of the companies, and figure out how you’re going to get paid. A highly profitable company that throws away its cash is not what you want.

What, all stocks? That’s hardly possible. You must be able to buy cheap and sell dear something, at least.

With the DOW closing today at 13,881 where the all time (2007) high was 14,098... it’s hard to consider getting back in (100% cash currently). Seems like the only place for this puppy to go is down, and buying at the top ain’t my idea of investing...

I have a friend who made over a million dollars on the futures market. I have no idea what that is but he was pretty wealthy before so I doubt it really made that much difference in his life.

the little guy may have concluded stocks are a sucker’s bet.

Apparently not everyone has battered-wife syndrome.

This isn't "sour grapes" on my part. I dabbled in the market just before the dot-com bubble burst, and doubled my few thousand bucks in less than a year. Got out and never got back in because I didn't understand what made the market go up and what made it go down.

If I could just follow those who control it - bet when they bet, and dump when they dump - I'd get back in. But house games are for suckers.

Stocks are almost worth what they were years ago, a bad long term investment. The stock market is straight up gambling.

I read not too long ago that 85% of ALL TRADES are between the 5 or so Too big to fail banks, there is very little with regards to the General Public or other institutions, which tells me it is a suckers game and they have been artificially pumping the market in an effort to Sucker the Public back in, so they can FLEECE US AGAIN.

-——Buying stocks does not seem to pay any more, because most of the increased value created by higher profits has been captured by hedge funds, electronic traders, private equity funds, aggressive M&A shops, and trading desks at investment banks, which have multiplied over the last two decades.-——

That is a wordy sentence of hedged nonsense. One wonders if the Maryland professor took some days off to be part of OWS.

stocks are propped up by tax payer bailouts, and stimulus to keep large banks from failing causing the feds to print monies that inflate our dollars causing more of them to be needed to buy the stocks of which they are selling to increase the market which they say is an indicator of a robust economy...

we are through the looking glass and here’s the reality...

milk has risen from 1.19 a gallon to 3.89 a gallon.

is it a good time to buy? either way, someone getting some teat.
