Banking kinda scares me at the moment so I don't know if I'd look there as a personal preference


JPM and WFC are the only 2 Banks I own, in individual stocks anyway, I'm sure I own several more in my funds.

It's not an industry to get married to, but Investment banking is an extremely profitable business.

It's on my watch list.

It's a dow dog. Dow dogs, unless they in deep financial trouble, are the stocks to buy.

With just 1 employer, than the people are forced to work for slave wages.

That's good for wal-mart corporate executives, but it's not good for the average joe.

Simply not true. Most of these small towns have quite a few employers. The problem is that low-skill jobs don't pay much.

And as we all know, people are not allowed to move somewhere else where they can use their high-level skills at a higher wage. Or they are not allowed to start their own business after identifying a need in their community that they can fill with their exquisite skills and knowledge.

Of course they can't. Everyone knows businesses don't pay any taxes at all and that would be evil.

I know some on this board say it's a loser investment, but a story on airline ridership had me thinking about airline stocks. All are up significantly over the past year. With all of the consolidation over the past decade are we to a point where these are strong plays long term?

Own too much of it, aluminum prices being squeezed and not a big enough div to let you get paid to wait.
That being said I'm holding my shares, but I have no other choice

Can anyone explain this options graph for Alcoa to me in layman's terms?

I just skimmed your link and my head exploded...

Let me try it another way, it looks from that graphic that more people are betting on AA being at 9.00 on April 20th then betting against it, no?

The highlighted line means someone buying that call option would pay 4 cents/share for the right to buy AA shares at $9 on April 20. If someone already owns those options they can sell them for 3 cents/share now.

And if they do not reach $9 by the 20th?

Options trading is above the average investors sophistication, It took me a long time to understand. You may as well be speaking Russian, Russian.

So they are not buying them up front?

ETA: How come they are pennies for a share?

ETA2: Do any of you guys mess with options?

no it's an option to buy from someone else. So if it goes to $10, you can still buy at just $9.
