I wonder how far in debt we would be if we hadn't bailed out all of these banks, car makers, alternative energy companies & God only knows who else got the bail out money.  Wouldn't it be nice if everyone of those companies would pay back what they owe?   Maybe things wouldn't look so gloomy.  Who am I kidding but myself-Ha.  Obama would have found another reason to make our debt so huge that we are on the brink of bankrupcy.

That's why those experts still work as experts even 30 years later.

My finance got wiped out for 2009 tax break and my income went from $ 105,000 to now zero as oil companies continue to bounce like a bad check but I remain a little less scheptical and am looking to restart from zero and wave those 19 hr oilfield positions and go to cheap Montello, NV where I have the oil and the water wells near. I'll contiue the million mile OTR  and sit in the government sposored truck stops. Saving is about by far the best do your best to avoid tax give me's untill you are already in the retirement shoes.

Wow ... he's sooooooo smart ... the stock market won't go in a straight line? Who woulda thought that .. guess that's why he makes the big bucks. I swear, if the markets has ups and downs this year, it's almost like he's psychic.

how sad it is to realize that americans love to blame abyone for  their own mistakes. The government cannot be held accountable for someone's failures or lack or responsibility. Americans need to grow up. If you work hard and are samrt and if we all stop living a life we cannot afford we will find happiness. People must stop pretending to be someone they would have like to be. Spend less that you can afford and you will succeed. And stop blaming others for your own mistakes.

Ok so I still don't see any where a list of 5 beers Americans do not drink anymore.

as usual these experts are totally FOS the stocks that should grow will be crushed by big oil again and those industries are solar, wind and geo thermal power and keep squeezing our balls every time they fart.  it seems every time gasoline goes down to 3.05 per gallon down here in Pensacola, Fl it goes up immediately by 10 cents - really, who is ****ting who here - just big oil screwing us again and again

Economics 101:  massive gov't debt=higher taxes+higher interest+higher inflation.
Jan 7, 2013 6:18PM
Again, just in case my point was lost, this guys crystal ball must be better than ours? What a fvcking moron.  Get a clue and just send me your money, becuase if you really belive this, I have a toll bridge in brooklyn you need to buy..........over and over again.
Jan 7, 2013 6:16PM
I don't believe it. Here we sit as a nation, bankrupt, corruption finanacially crippled, morally lost, and this article is going to tell us what in the hell to invest in? rofl      I can only guess that these peole live by barnums razor " a sucker is born every second". You can take this article and fold it 5 times and shtick it where the moon don't shine.  What a fvcking moron.
Jan 7, 2013 5:52PM

I agree regarding last crisis. However the conditions even on micro level became severe in sales negotiation terms. Small and medium enterprises are facing higher level of trade knowledge. i'm speaking from Serbian perspective.


For example: Food industry overcame inflation by giving final consumers products which are raised up to max. 10% in price but smaller wight. Chocolate waffles of local Stark producer from 450 grams got lowered down to 360 grams and the price is almost the same as before. Other products categories such as: clothing detergent, milk, energy beverages are being the same as food industry. Chances are out there we need to find our place and take the advantage of it.

you make me laugh! "Wake up Dems" Like the Republicons aren't as crooked as the Democrits----they are equal in every way. Its a two headed monster or the two party dictatorship. The coup began in the 80's during Ronald Raygun's watch---ZAPP ! Wiping out Union membership, eliminatiing antitrust laws, tax breaks to greedy corporations that move manufacturing overseas especially to China (Communist governments and other dictatorships), cutting education (dummy down the middle class), wasting middle class tax payers money on wars that only benefit the international oil barrons by helping to keep oil prices artificially high (like DeBeers Diamonds), brings vast wealth to contractors working for the military industrial complex who pull political strings to stir up trouble in the world and manipulate politicians (Lobbys) to perpetuate the need for their services, and on and on. Democracy is losing or already lost to Oligarchs. And you are worried about the 16 trillion debt that is on paper. First, almost 10 trillion of that 16 trillion is owed to the American people not foreigners (ie. 2.7 trillion borrowed from Social Security surplus). The other 6 trillion is borrowed from foreigners like China, Japan and others. The real problem is the two headed monster, the simese twins with different names---Democrat and Republican (who cater to the rich) or the illusion of so-called right and left. We need  third party members elected to Congress and the White House.
Anything Obama backs, I`m not investing in and anyone with any common sense should do the same.

All reasonable suggestions except the solar panel firm. Solar is dead for investment purposes. Sooner or later due to budget constraints the price supports and tax credits go away and this industry will fall in on itself; AGAIN.

Most brokers choose stocks after the fact which is why they still work.


I purchased Apple in the late 90s for a little over $10/share just because I knew it was worth more based on thier financials. I had no idea they would develop a phone which would excite the world so much. I also purchased a few thousand shares of Ford (from Apple returns) a few years back when it was under $2/share and took a gamble (which worked out) that they would not take the gov't bailout.


The best advice I ever heard from anyone regarding stocks, bonds, etc. is to purchase items you use or see daily at work/home. Usually this will give you an idea of what products will make it and "could" earn a hefty return.

I can't imagine why he would recomend a sinking ship like the Coal Industry, maybe I am missing something but I find it hard to believe that WHITF can be a 2013 top performer.
