If you really want some oil volatility, get some units of LINE.

Although I have positions in both GLF and CHK, I wouldn't touch either at the moment unless one is taking a very small position.

 

CHK is a gamble on prices and the company not wiping out common or diluting them into nothing.

 

GLF will be a while before there is any kind of recovery in the exploration and drilling their ships are used for. It will lag the oil market by many years.

After all, the minimum wage in California is $0, not $9.00 per hour.

You're right on this.

I'm taking a road trip to Hawthorne, Palo Alto, and Cupertino next week (knowing my man crushes, easy guesses on the companies). My friends that work there are all great people.

I think the key is that you can be an idiot and work 100 hours a week. You can also be intelligent and feel compelled to work 100 hours a week - and still maintain a personal life. My friends and I always joke that output is efficiency multiplied by time.

An idiot working 100 hours is worse than someone smarter that works 50 hours a week - however that smarter person is going to be way more successful if they work 100 hours a week. There is some asymptotic time constant on that, but it's true.

Jesus. She must be the most pathetic loser that ever worked there. I'm frankly surprised she was hired.

She also uses lady, murder, and face in her handle.

sadly that's how most people of my generation act...give us all trophies as kids and make us think we're special and we become entitled to everything in life...I was tired of making what I thought was too little income for my degree and intellect so I went back to school and will be earnings something closer to what I envisioned.

The lack of drive is what separates the successful people of my generation and people like yelp girl.

Positive reinforcement education is overrated.  Not everyone should receive a medal just for participation.  Nor should kids to be treated as little princesses and prices.

 

A rude awakening when they grow up and realize their parents are not kings and queens and participation dont equate reward.

 

Hardwork is a bare minimum requirement, the rest is all luck.

These are pics from the Yelp girl? I can't believe she's so fucking stupid as to become a viral Netwebs thing and not realize her other accounts are going to get doxxed. At least make that shit "private" if you don't delete.


So I saw on the BBC that US GDP has been forecasted higher than original. Will the domestic markets turn around?

She's just a fucking attention whore. I saw her Twitter as her story blew up and she was soaking in all the attention like a beached whale carcass basking in the blistering sun.

I think I hate her more because she's so smug and ugly lol.

Your guess is as good as ours but from a personal standpoint, during earnings season quite a few companies go dinged for their outlooks which could make 2016 a tough year.  Add to that most other markets seem to be having growth issues so how can the US continue its growth?  

 

There are 100s of other metrics you could go by and on my daily investment reading list, this came up.  You can find positive or negative sentiment on any given day as long as you look at enough charts: http://thereformedbroker.com/2016/02/29/the-big-bearish-crossover/

Turn out to be the other issue is SEC investigation.

The latest irony here is the existence of the investigation shouldn't come as a surprise to investors or anyone else. Given all of the bad press, guidance changes, etc., there's no way the SEC wouldn't open an investigation. I get (or at least am not surprised by) the market reaction, but at this point it I don't think it adds any real information one way or the other to the investment value (on which I have no opinion) for valeant.

Anyone have thoughts on a couple of industries...?


1. Commodities - At one point I was holding Alcoa (AA) and Caterpillar (CAT) since both seemed more or less blue chip and beaten down, but my sense is that these are going to take years to recover and I'm more of a day trader. Are these good buys here, or lower, or is the whole industry just in bad shape and to be avoided etc?

2. Microchips - Currently holding Micron (MU) and Qualcomm (QCOMM) and down quite a bit on both... is this industry speculative like biotech? I mean these are both pretty big companies but I've been surprised how far down they've come. I mean MU was at 30 at one point and then 20 and now is floating around 10-11. QComm seems to have come back up, I was buying it mid 40's and its not just past 50. But basically again, is this an industry on an overall downcycle, have I chosen two bad players, is the whole business just volatile so these swings are normal, is there huge projections built in so in an overall down market these guys get pulled first, etc...? I'm nearly ready to get out of QCOMM but MU is down hard and I have no sense of when it'll come back up to somewhere reasonably where I can sell and break even.
