  • An Intersting Article about GM

    daytraderockstar post

    posted by daytraderockstar

    May 31, 2009 7:48 pm

    Let me start by saying that I have no GM (GM) position. I sold the last of my bonds today, but may buy some next week. I like the prospects for the "new GM."

    The GM that is expected to file bankrupcy on Monday isn't worthless. First of all, it will get some very small piece of the "new GM."

    Secondly, GM has lost about $69 per share in the last 3 years. That loss is very valuable. It may be a record for any American corporation. Someone will want that corporate shell when all the assets are stripped away. That someone will want it for the loss.

    On a different scale, assume you could buy a $690,000 tax loss for $7500. Every 75 cents buys $69 of tax loss.

    Would you be interested? I know I would.

    Microsoft (MSFT) should buy the GM shell. Can you imagine the uproar? The GM tax loss for the last 4 years is almost $32 billion. I did the math based on Microsoft's recent earnings and taxes, and the GM tax loss would save MSFT around $9 billion in taxes. At today's close, GM has a total market value of less than $500 million.

    Remember Penn Central? Lots of losses. It is currently owned by an Ohio insurance company, Carl Lindner's hedge fund. He is one of the richest people in the world.

    So, maybe all those smart talking heads on TV (like Cramer) who think that only stupid retail investors are buying GM will be surprised at the ultimate outcome.

    By Nick Godt, MarketWatch

    NEW YORK (MarketWatch) -- Investors, albeit with some hesitation over the past two weeks, have continued to push the market higher in May, a sign of confidence in the nearly three-month rally as we head into Memorial Day, which typically marks the start of the slow summer months.

    May 16, 2009 12:15 pm

    Cover Story notes the burst of US Govt Treasuries bubble, as 30-yr yields rise to 4.10% and 10-yr yields recently test 3.30%'s.  Cites expectations of economic recovery, improved performance of credit markets, and rise in equities resulting in Treasuries entering "bear market" as fixed income bullish enthusiasm shifts to corporates, munis, and mortgage securities.  Going forward, sees Treasuries remaining "unappealing" based on "low historical levels", along with record budget deficits and ambitious fiscal stimulus program.  Quotes PIMCO's El-Erian urging investors to get out of Treasuries and forecasts 10-yr yields reaching 4% and 30-yr bonds reaching 5%.  Recommends ETFs TBT (UltraShort 20+ yr Treasury) and TIP for inflation protection.

    May 04, 2009 11:07 am

    Awesome bullish tone to the mkt today, looking at an RSI pop up through the wedge, a bullish MACD cross, higher lows Stochastics. Let's see if we can push through 898 here, next target is January highs of 943.

  • Next Sector to move this week

    May 04, 2009 10:59 am

    Seeing a great set up across the board on health care, These stocks include JNJ, PFE, ELN, ABT

    ABT especially looking prime here, Holding its downward wedge pattern and a gap up and furthe push today could be the beginning of a sustained move in this stock, I have a target of 47 which is not even a measured move out of the pattern
