It isn’t often when a friend of mine wins a Nobel Prize. But that’s what happened this weekend when the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences awarded the prestigious award to Yale University’s Robert Shiller. Shiller, along with Eugene Fama, and Lars Peter Hanson of the University of Chicago will share the $1.23 million cash award […]
My annual electric bill here in sunny San Francisco comes to $4,800 a year. Since the California power authorities have set a goal of 33% alternative energy sources by 2020, PG&E (PGE) has the most aggressive green energy program in the country (click here for “The Solar Boom in California”. More expensive solar, wind, geothermal, […]

When the markets figure this out, the result for share prices could be dire, putting my entire yearend bull case at risk. My […]
I was sad to hear of the passing of an old friend last summer, my former White House Press Corp colleague, Helen Thomas. Two weeks short of 93, Helen was the oldest and longest serving member of this esteemed group of journalists, and had the traditional right to ask the first question at each presidential […]

You have to be impressed how Apple shares have been trading during the Washington shutdown and the debt ceiling crisis. While other highflying technology stocks have crashed and burned, Apple has held like the Rock of Gibraltar. Is this presaging much better things to come? After the bar was set extremely low in the run […]

I’m sure you all spent the better part of last January explaining to your clients that they should be pouring all of their money into alternative energy, social media, and biotech ETF’s. What! You didn’t? You obviously failed to get the memo. Well, neither did I. Yes, I know this sounds like the makeup of […]
You can’ keep a good stock down. That’s the obvious message on Tesla (TLSA) shares in the wake of the fire that consumed one of its $80,000 Model’s S-1’s on a Washington state road after it ran over the rear bumper of the truck it was following. The video was quickly plastered all over YouTube […]

By now, you have figured out that I executed a major “derisking” of my model trading portfolio today, cutting my exposure by two thirds. Most of these positions only had a few basis points in maximum profit left, so bailing here was a no brainer, a case of “Basic Risk Control 101.” Better to laugh […]
