Facebook – Share crash to continue - Target Price cut from $7.30 to $5 and Zuckerburg will have to go

22 Aug 2012 @ 23:14
I have explained numerous times since Facebook  (NASDAQ:FB) stock IPO’d at $38 a share in mid May why I think that the shares are on fundamentals worth no more than $7.30. Actually it is pretty hard to put any value on this company as there is just so little visibility of earnings. And for that […]

China Hard Landing – the Underpants Evidence

22 Aug 2012 @ 22:43
I have warned so many times that China is set for a hard landing in the second half of 2012 that if you have ignored my numerous articles then there is probably no helping you at any stage. But I shall try again and I shall be brief. That is a pun. I am talking underpants here. […]

The Libor Scandal Is Far From Over - It's Only Just Begun

17 Aug 2012 @ 01:32
“What a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive.” Was there a banking scandal in Sir Walter Scott’s day, or did he foresee one coming?  Whatever, the answer, he sure got it right.  The banking world is a mess.  It seems like Barclays has been in the headlines more often in the […]

14 Aug 2012 @ 06:40
In Washington, D.C., there is a cozy connection between business and government. Corporate donations of large sums of money to their politicians, parties and special interest groups of choice are legion. Since the donations are considerable in most cases, it makes one wonder exactly what the businesses are getting out of the deal. Obviously nothing […]

Manchester United – Biggest Brand in Sport? Why DealCloud? – Target price $7: Sell

13 Aug 2012 @ 17:28
I explained on Friday why the Manchester United (NYSE:MANU)  IPO was, at $14, a joke. I am asked what I think that the stock is worth?
