Pfizer $PFE Working On Specialized Vaccine Targeting COVID-19 Delta Variant: CEO
Xena - The Fed trick of turning Wall Street debt onto the public debt will be done at a slower pace. That was today's good news?
Zeev's weekend stories about a life going back to World War II were must reads for me. A life well lived is what we all hope for.
The FED will continue to mess things up until WE THE PEOPLE assert our own power, but it will be an uphill battle.
Zeev was an exceptional person, freely sharing his knowledge, and with that his love.
Now is the time for all exceptional persons to come to the aid of their country.
Best investing board ever seen in it's day. Zeevs stories made it the most interesting.
Is the market rolling over as the FED is starting to look like a paper tiger. Everyone knows the trillions of new debt means the FED has no firepower if someone starts to focus on the dollar.
This is not an election year and that makes it the most likely year to see a major correction.

I can't think of anything you can compare today to. Don't know how the market reacted during the Spanish Flu, but pretty sure the internet and their government conspiracies weren't around then.
The market was bloated for sure and I've been saying, if everyone is a millionaire then no one really is.
What I see in our future is too much cash existing and thus, having a million dollars is like having $550k 6 months ago, very shortly.
People need to get out of the idea that being a millionaire means you can retire.
With that said, staying out of the market all together is like burying your cash in the backyard back in 1950 and now digging up that $100 bill.
Most of the pros are gone or retired. The rest of us are still getting by. This current virus crisis will lead to the debt crisis. Give it maybe a couple months for the young and ignorant to load the way over extended market back up. Look for gold to hit all time highs this year or next, at least 2800 by EOY 2021. Look for DOW to go below 14k. Look for the rise of new experts who get it and have prepared, and the new generation, and old generation who think it’s going back to normal, who have to wait years to recover. The only thing that will even come close to what is about to happen is Great Depression or WWII.

I did. He was definitely interesting, although I would love to be able to ask him some questions today about the proposals he first made me.
We need more good souls like that if we are to save ourselves and Mother Earth.

"Stock Market Picks For Active Traders And Investors"
Long Play: SPR- Play is active
On Wednesday, I alerted Spirit Aero Systems (SPR) which closed at 55.80, having dropped from 60.04 on an underappreciated Fourth Quarter Earnings Report. Thursday afforded the opportunity to get in from 54.37 to 54.71
Friday began the price recovery, steadily reaching a high of 56.63 as shorts realized their party would be brief.
Friday's close of 56.05 leaves plenty of upside with an average analyst (18) Price Target of 62.68
Short term traders might set their sights on 59-60. Investors can settle in for the long run with this highly rated stock.
Some additional facts to consider:
. Spirit is Boeing's largest supplier. Boeing is "sold out" for 2017 and mostly sold out for 2018 and 2019. the 2020's will witness a wave of wide body retirements.
. With a present Trailing P/E of 15.15, SPR is undervalued compared to its peer group with an average P/E about a third higher
. SPR has authorized $600M for continued share repurchase and "inorganic" expenditures (acquisitions) in Defense companies.
. Initiating a Dividend signals the company's confident outlook.
Spirit is a solid company with a low risk profile. It's on sale in my opinion and am looking for the recovery to continue next week, barring a market turn down which very green futures are not signaling at this writing.
Please read Wednesday's SPR Summary for further color.
Good trading all!

"Stock Market Picks For Active Traders Of Fully Reporting Stocks"
Long Play: SPR
SPR Summary: Aircraft parts maker Spirit Aero Systems Holdings Inc. (SPR) reported Earnings this morning that met company upper end Guidance and I/B/E/S estimate. Full year Adjusted EPS were up 16% year over year.
Actual Earnings were less, attributable to a Hurricane Matthew that affected the company's North Carolina facility that the company expects their insurance to cover and to a voluntary retirement offering which will result in cost savings.
The share price closed down at $55.80, -7.08%, likely due to usual Earnings profit taking by traders and the trade just reading the headlines and not getting into the weeds to see the fourth quarter EPS gap will be made up by insurance reimbursement and cost savings from lower employee count.
It achieved a higher ratings from Moody and S&P which enabled the company to refinance its debt favorably.
It did not use its $650M Revolving Line of Credit.
It initiated a Dividend this quarter.
It has a $47B dollar backlog- almost seven years of work!
Spirit was part of Boeing not long ago. It does a very significant business with Boeing and now independent, sees wide opportunity to increase its Defense work. This looks very promising with a Trump administration
It offered 2017 Guidance that increases Revenues, Earnings and Cash.
SPR is very highly rated by the leading analysts yet has a quite reasonable P/E (Trailing Twelve Months) of 15.76
Even if we look to Capital IQ higher estimates, rev's missed by 1% and EPS by 3%. Today's decline of 7% looks overdone.
I am looking for a near term bounce and appears also to be a decent entry for long term investors.
I Googled "negative zero"
Got lots of new information, but decided to check out another source.
Contacted a guy that doesn't exist at Area 51.
The extraterrestrial that crashed his alien spacecraft is still alive and well and was asked if it had any insight into +0 and -0.
Quite a different story then that of a Google search.
When a +0 comes in contact with a -0 Dark matter is created.
When a -0 comes in contact with a +0 Dark energy is created.
Doubtful those at CERN can verify this as it spoke of the difficulty of creating a +0 or -0 in nature.
But I bet Zeev would try if he was still here.

Well-grounded physicist led quiet, inventive life
by "Science from the sidelines" columnist Dave Brooks
Patents about better chemistry for superconductors and faster hand-drying in bathrooms, about secure time stamps for computer files and remote lighting of appliances, about magnetic heat pumps and disposable paper cups.
That's a lot of intellectual ground for one man to cover.
"When you have an active mind, a busy brain – you can do more!" said Urszula Hed, of Nashua, speaking of her late husband, Zeev, a physicist who turned the joy of invention into a profession. "I lived with him so long I didn't think it was unusual."
Hed died earlier this month at age 69 after a short illness, stilling what had been a very active mind, indeed. He was involved in at least 45 U.S. patents, including those cited above, plus an equal number of international ones. For decades he slew corporations' intellectual dragons as part of an unusual inventor-for-hire company in Massachusetts.
"He was really a generalist," said longtime business partner Richard Pavelle, one of four men who made up the firm Invent Resources. "He had expertise in chemistry, biology, medical instrumentation, medicine, music history . . . and a degree in physics. He and I would be on the phone with experts at various companies, and the remarkable thing was that after a couple of minutes in these meetings, it was clear to everybody there that he knew more than the experts."
His motto as an inventor, as I was told by everybody I talked to about him, was simple: "I am too stupid to know it cannot be done." If it wasn't perpetual motion or other violation of the laws of nature, he was willing to take a shot.
He and his family lived in Nashua for a quarter-century, since he first came up from the New York area to take a corporate job he quickly ditched. All four of their children were raised here.
So why haven't you ever heard of him? More importantly, why haven't I?
My first inkling of this amazing man, I must admit, came last week when anonymous e-mails landed at The Telegraph, asking about his death. It turns out they were from fans at an online personal finance forum where Hed had posted free advice for years.
"I have been corresponding with him for nearly 15 years, both publicly and privately. The world has lost a true champion and a humble, giving soul," wrote one of these people in response to my query. "I would write more but tears are dripping into my keyboard again."
Urszula Hed said the family wasn't known here because they were more oriented south of the border, for business and personal reasons (the kids all went to private schools).
And Zeev Hed didn't go public, as many would have, about his astonishing life.
His father was born in Cologne, Germany, and his mother in Lodz, Poland – not great places to be in the early years of the 20th century if you were Jewish. His siblings were born in Germany, but by the time he came along, his parents had gone to Belgium to avoid the Nazis.
It didn't work, unfortunately; both his parents were killed as part of the resistance, and Hed ended up as one of a group of children who fled the Nazis during World War II, moving from location to location until they were finally rescued by Allied forces.
"He learned to read by drawing letters in the sand," said his wife.
Hed was taken to Israel, where he grew up on a kibbutz. Eventually he got a doctorate in solid-state physics and made it, like so many bright, post-war children, to the United States.
He worked for companies and on his own, before hooking up with three other, like-minded engineer scientists to create Invent Resources. Companies came to them with problems they needed solving.
"There are many Fortune 500 companies that have virtually no technical ability in house," said Pavelle.
So the quartet got to do the enjoyable part of R&D – that is, the R. What happened afterward wasn't their problem.
"We did the fun work," said Pavelle. "Clearly, in any product development, the most difficult part is the marketing . . . It's not uncommon for a company to spend 20-30 million (dollars) on a new product that never sees the light of day for whatever reason."
This unusual career allowed Hed to work mostly at home, cranking out patents and helping companies from the huge to the startup.
There are a surprising number of very clever but overlooked people like Hed around, doing amazing stuff with no recognition. I'm sorry I didn't know about him while he was still alive; but perhaps that's the way he liked it.
His wife told me about a job interview in which the not-particularly lofty Hed said he should be hired "because I'm the tallest man you've ever met."
The reason for that odd boast?
"He told them, 'I have my feet on the ground and my head in the clouds,' " Urszula Hed said. "That's what he was like."
a piece of liver might be better than that....lo
ahhhh to be rich=errr
Thanks Geoff. There are no words I can offer.
WHY IS cramer still walking around and the sec not investigating. He is a real pump and dump program for all his buddies. Pos
Your post from year 2005 and since then DECK has been an ATM machine for me at times.
First, I would like to thank the people at IHUB for allowing a message to appear in this thread. You displayed class and grace at a time when it was really needed.
This is a post conveying some of the worst possible news. A great friend of all of us Zeev followers – Joe Stocks – suffered a personal family tragedy last night. Joe's daughter and grand-daughter lost their lives in a house fire and his grandson is in hospital with severe burns. The family home was totally destroyed.
I will not post any personal information here as I have not asked Joe if I could, but if you need any further info please PM me. I will answer all I can. In addition Joe maintains another stock discussion group here where more info can be found.
All: This board is closed to further posting. The title of the board says "No Politics" and that was what Zeev himself named it. He is no longer with us to moderate the board and to uphold the vision of stock discussion only.
No pm's regarding this please as there will not be a reply. This is a final decision and not up for discussion.
Thanks Newly. The trade is paramount, the posting secondary. I suspect there are more option traders here than you might imagine; they might not be posting though.
Trading is a very lonely occupation. That's why I hang out here, to break the monotony waiting for my trade to mature or my entry/exit to hit, looking for trading ideas and info, too. I used to post my trades in real time, but with fast scalps that is just too difficult to do without interrupting one's concentration so I rarely bother anymore. Besides I now trade only options, and there are few options traders here on this board.
Anyway, I do wish you success in making this board workable and pleasant to visit once again.
PS Bye for now, gotta hit the road. Looks like more rain on its way today here the Denver area. . .
It's a long trading day Newly so I interject occasionally with some lightness. But you're right; it's one think to honestly disagree with someone and begin a dialogue...it's quite another to be nasty and mean spirited.
I've noted this too lately by a very few. It WILL cease.
Yes, I remember everyone deciding to keep the board alive way back when, and as I said, it is water over the dam. I enjoy hanging out here, too, though of late it has gotten a bit out of hand. I know you prefer everything to be sweetness and light and everyone in harmony, but I think you need to start suspending or outright banning the most egregious posters who constantly stir up trouble here if the board is to be saved and cannie lured back into posting here, LOL.
Coal is likely to benefit from higher NGas prices IMO. I be long JRCC.
Interesting times, don't know how I stayed out of the politics.
Godwin observed that, given enough time, in any online discussion—regardless of topic or scope—someone inevitably makes a comparison to Hitler and the Nazis.
