Mad Hedge Fund Trader Hits New All Time High With 40% Gain in 2014

Giants Baseball Hitter

It was Thursday night, and the family was glued to the TV set. The San Francisco Giants were playing the St. Louis Cardinals for the National League Pennant. It was the bottom of the 9th inning, the score was tied 3-3, and the Giants were up. Two men were already on base. Then right fielder Travis Ishikawa blasted a home run out of the park, winning the game by 6-3. The fans … [Read more...]

The Bottom Building Process Has Begun

John Thomas - Young Man - Armed

I have an arrangement with several large hedge funds where they pay me a small fortune every month for the privilege of calling me one day a year. Wednesday was that day.

Revisiting Cheniere Energy (LNG)

Destroyed Town

I am constantly asked if there are any ways investors can take advantage of the fracking and horizontal drilling boom in natural gas.

Good firms that benefit from the increased volume of gas pumped are few and far between. … [Read more...]

Delta Airlines is Cleared for Takeoff

John Thomas Croatia

When I was a young, clueless investment banker at Morgan Stanley 30 years ago, the head of equity sales took me aside to give me some fatherly advice. Never touch the airlines. The profitability of this industry was totally dependent on fuel costs, interest rates and the state of the economy, and management hadn't the slightest idea of what any of these were going to do.

America’s Demographic Collapse and Your Stock Portfolio
