After surpassing expectations, Eastman Kodak (EK) surged 25% on Thursday, making Bill Gates and Bill Miller even richer. Will it be the turnaround stock of 2010?

enough already, Seriously do you really need the validation that bad?  Did daddy not give you enough attention?  This crisis is so much more than solars and whatever garbage you cheerlead everyday!  I do not come here to read about investing advice, i come here because i once believe this "Give me your tired, your poor,

Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,

The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.

Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,

I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"


So please keep your advice to your own website


and on a side note, who is going to be installing solar panels on their house or what have you, when they cant afford a house?  And if demand drops because unemployment checks stop, hence oil goes to absurdly cheap compared to now, who is going to be heating their house/company with solars?  REALLY????  WHO, well it must be leo because he will supply all of the demand himself!!!!!!  Perhaps walmart will start selling solars at everyday low prices, if they can fiance their debt when interest rates are 30%

Why would low oil prices cause a drop in the demand for solar? Anyone with half a brain should be able to figure out that a drop in oil prices is unsustainable in the 3-5 year timeframe, and if a dip in oil caused solar prices to go down, I would buy in a heartbeat.

If y'all want to see boobies, go to PETA's website, and check out how they have a state of the union address.

You have to listen to a lot of boring blah blah blah shit, but the chick gets naked the whole time she talks.

Or you can check any one of the 99% of pornsites that make up the internet.

Still, the PETA state of the union is somewhat "respectable".  LOL

Have a nice day!

It's all smoke and mirrors and misdirection and misperception.

The markets have resumed a deflationary collapse that first occurred between 2000-2002, raged from 2007-2009, and, after a brief reflationary pause from March 2009-December 2009, is resuming again. Get your Greenbacks on and sell the rest.

Deflationary collapse. Again.

Factory of Tears

And once again according to the annual report
the highest productivity results were achieved
by the Factory of Tears.

While the Department of Transportation was breaking heels
while the Department of Heart Affairs
was beating hysterically
the Factory of Tears was working night shifts
setting new records even on holidays.

While the Food Refinery Station
was trying to digest another catastrophe
the Factory of Tears adopted a new economically advantageous
technology of recycling the wastes of past –
memories mostly.

The pictures of the employees of the year
were placed on the Wall of Tears.

I’m a recipient of workers’ comp from the heroic Factory of Tears.
I have calluses on my eyes.
I have compound fractures on my cheeks.
I receive my wages with the product I manufacture.
And I’m happy with what I have.

Yeah, the financials were strong and GoldmanSquid put STI on the convict buy list. Well most of you know the drill. It gaps up large and Mr. Big Time hit the bid all morning and during the afternoon rally he sat on the offer selling a bazillion shares. I guess we should give the Squid credit. They good. They real good.

No hot chicks unless the market goes back into rally mode, or if some Low Grade Screamer like PMCS launches up a huge percentage.

Its "hunker down" time....
