BUY AMERICAN,,,STOP funding the enemy Red Chinese criminals who lie cheat and steal from the USA...We are in an economic war and we must fight back. We must STOP the FREEE TRADE madness that has caused the decline of the American middle class. Free Trade will not work for the USA because all countries will put their people ahead of fair trade The USA always puts the Chinese ahead of American workers.   We must return tn sensible trade laws, YES who protect the USA.        BUY AMERICAN        PUT THE USA FIRST          STOP THE ELITE GLOBALIST who sell out the USA.

Two factors no one can deny-- old people who own stocks are dying off and young people who aren't employed well enough-- are unable to buy stocks. In less than 20 years, there won't be any substance to the banks or exchanges. "Globalization" was a failure, a move made by Inflationists to gain wealth. It backfired. By taking jobs offshore and importing, our currency has become useless on Main Street, No foreign stock is worth the Risk because America cannot enforce the rules. Your best bet is to invest in your neighborhood and restore substance there, otherwise, you will be victimized by what it transforms into.

Intel...really? You're not from the same team of idots that was writing stories of Intel's demise just a few weeks back, are you?  My opinion; no better than a monkey or professional financial guesser, is that Intel will be relavent for a long time to come.

R COX   I could not have said it better. Their are in the process of selling inferior products, that not only break +/ or  fall apart. but that are contimated with lead, melamine, and only they know what, in an effort to posien  our populace and horde scarce resourses. Can you imagine living below one of their dams, these people can not even produce a hose clamp. Wall Streets greed is fueling this and the Chinise are fueling that greed with short term returns, The long term effects will not be plesant unless we boycott all products manufactured there & start buying American. BUYING AMERICAN PUTS AMERICANS TO WORK!

MSN, this is reckless. You publish a list of recommended stocks... based upon NEWSLETTER picks? (!!!) These people sell newsletters, for crying out loud.  If they were good analysts, they'd be working for Goldman Sachs (and making a lot more dough than they are with a newsletter!). Some of your readers will stuff one of these turkeys with their 401k rollovers, or with their inheritance- based on this crap you publish.   Why can't you stick with what you're good at?  (when is the Kardashian baby due?  who did Justin Bieber punch this week?)   I've read your investing fertilizer MSN. Y'all are toying with the financial security of your readers.  Just saying.

Stocks Huh?????? You all really think or believe this is all about Stocks & Investments??????


Wasn't it a great idea back in 1973 when the president was soooo proud to sign the "FREE TRADE AGREEMENT" sending our UNION AMERICAN MADE JOBS to mexico and all around the globe just to beat  taxes & build products cheaper with uneducated labor for pennies per day!


It's now 2013!  40 years later! America now has unions you can't count on all the fingers of your hands, it's mostly all cheaply made imports that falls apart before it even arrives or poisons we induce daily that comes into our Country from 3rd world countries, almost 2/3rds of our country are on welfare & food stamps, Most people who do have jobs work for the Govt. crime & drugs are an epidemic with killings & murders on the average of 1 every 10 secs!   etc etc...


Will you continue to take more great advise from our great Govt. & president in surrendering your guns? 'IF SO' > then be prepared to take orders next to board the Fema trucks taking you & your families to Fema Camps under Marshall Law then to be forced at gunpoint into ovens to die as Hitler did to the jews & other innocent people!


That's the NEW WORLD ORDER AGENDA planned by the GLOBAL ELITE! because the world is over populated so, they say it's time for the expendable to go!  >>> THAT'S YOU & ME!!!


If ya think I'm kiding > I'm DEAD SERIOUS! because THAT'S A FACT JACK WHAT'S COMING NEXT!




Our nation out of work (unless you're a Govt. employee) almost 2/3rds of our country on welfare & food stamps, crime & drugs are an epidemic with killings & murders on the average of 1 every 10 secs etc etc...


Will you continue to take such great advise of our great govt. & president of surrendering your guns? then take orders to board the Fema trucks taking you & your families to Fema Camps under Marshall Law to be forced at gunpoint into ovens to die as Hitler did to the jews & others ? 


That's the NEW WORLD ORDER AGENDA ordered by the GLOBAL ELITE!


If ya think I'm kiding > I'm DEAD SERIOUS! because THAT'S A FACT JACK WHAT'S COMING NEXT!




CIVIL WAR is on the Horizon!

WOW,sound like everyone should take a chill pill or something. I've noticed that these comment boards always seem to bring out the most intelligent conversations , or just the most rediculous statements of all time. If anyone out there still has the abiliy to have a legitamate thought, please comment now, because all I se is a bunch of cry-babies not getting their way. If you would like for things to be different, then ,by all means think of something constructive that would help and DO IT! Stop complaining about the situation and start coming up with solutions, some of the comments I've seen look like they came from a third grade drop-out. No wonder the world looks at this country the way they do.

Intel? Why would the White sreggiN of Wall Street want Intel on a BUY list? They have manipulated the stock for over ten years now. ...xing Thieves, Liars and Whores.

I remember when JDSU was $ 170.00/share pciking up Money magazine and seeing it as one of the top "can't miss" stocks.  I remember RIM as a "can't miss" as well.  I suppose either the "pros" knowledge is flawed or there is one list for public consumption and another for reality.

Free Trade would be fine if the Comi Red Chinese  trade fair. The Chinese lie cheat and steal from all. You can not do business with a Govt who wishes to take everything from everyone. We must have a govt who puts the USA first, Like we did in the first 200 years of the USA. TARRIFF ALL CHINESE PRODUCTS.        BUY AMERICAN

People are just plain tired of Apple. All they do is make the same old thing in a different sized package. Why keep upgrading year after year for basically the same thing? Apple has now outproduced its demand causing the reduction of parts orders.


To those who say "buy American", you are an idiot. Without importing and exporting with other countries, the US would shrivel up. Do a real check on where items are made such as ball caps, shirts, autos, electonics and so so much more and you will see they are usually made in China. How much oil comes from Canada, water too. Water is being stolen from the great lakes by a plant in northern Michigan. The water is treated, bottled or put in LARGE containers and sent to China, yes China.


China owns the largest percentage of US debt. If we stop buying from them we will all be speaking Chinese or Mandarin shortly. 


If people stopped buying stupid unnecessary stuff, you would have more money.

   I would agree with you and Cox if we could get the useless unions out of the USA's work force.. they make it worse and protect the workers that are totally useless  As an American I try to buy American.. and as a worker I try to take some pride in my work.  To many fat lazy American's don't give a crap about their product and it makes the rest of us look bad.  To many just do their 40 and don't give a crap after that.  this is one of the main reasons American products are looked down at by the rest of the world.   this is just my humble opinion.    Don't Hate..
