  1. MGT was a pretty solid Pump N Dump but it can't hold a candle to VLTC's run from sub 1 to over 16 when Carl Icahn's stake was announced. Then, even bigger was Martin Shkreli's P&D on KBIO from sub 1 to over 40 in 4 days or so before it collapsed into a heap and went to KBIOQ. I got in at 18 and ran screaming at 26 in under 5 minutes.

    There will probably be more pumps for MGT down the road but each one will be smaller, less spectacular and harder to time than the 1st one. VLTC had 3 P&Ds inside a year.

    Wait this is John McAfee? The guy who was suspiciously involved in some murders in Mexico or South America or something like that? Isn't this guy a maniac? 

    Yea, this will end well. 

    Exactly. Classic pump n dump on his being named CEO.

    Not sure about all those wide receivers. Seems like there were better/higher upside wr's available like the ones New England and Pittsburgh got in the 7th.

    2 of the best WR classes in the last decade pass by and the Browns ignore all the receivers except for Vince Mayle who was a bum. Then they throw a ton of #### against the wall hoping it wills tick in the worst WR class in the past decade.

    I drive 6,000 miles a year, at 17 mpg that is about 352 gallons a year - the difference of $2 and $3 is $352 a year to me... I'd much rather make large quantities betting on or against oil... I've been fairly good at calling oil and been pretty bearish for the better part of the last year - the trend has now flipped.

    The market is rebalancing for the second half of the year. I've been touting oil now since the high $30's, I anticipate it rides to $50 before we see some headwinds - it will take some time for producers to get back online, but I would like to capitalize on the last 15% or so higher I'm confident this is heading in the near-term. 

    I'll agree with that. Moved into a commodities fund I've been watching plummet for the last 4 years. BRCYX. Got in later than I should have but I am riding this. I noticed that their % cash holdings went from 98%  to 73% last quarter so I was guessing that they were sitting back in cash for the most part until things turned. My only concern is that Cramer is touting XLB - Materials Select Sector SPDR ETF which is part of what BRCYX invests in.

    The fact that so many people are irresponsible with retirement saving means that Social Security HAS to be around. For some, that will be their only source of income. Changes will be made to the program but it's not going away.

    Exactly. Also, there will never be a time when the gov't hands the general public an SS lump sum and allows them to manage it. The fact that 50% of humanoids have no retirement tells what would happen in that scenario.

    This makes my point when people come out saying SS won't be there for them when they retire.

    Oh and one last thing: Puleeeze, don’t talk to us about cutting Social Security.

    For millions of Americans, Social Security is The Retirement Plan: 65 percent of beneficiaries depend on it for half or more of their monthly income. Without it, nearly half of women 65 and older would live in poverty or extreme poverty. Let’s not gloss over what extreme poverty means. It means living on less than $5,885 per year or $490 a month.

    So when you threaten to cut entitlement programs like Social Security, what you’re really talking about is dooming millions and millions of boomer-age women to misery and destitution. Boomer-age women who vote.

    For those against a BIG, are you against it because you're against social safety nets in general?  If so, then it's easy for me to understand your opposition.  If, however, you aren't opposed to a social safety net, I can't understand why anyone would prefer our current hodgepodge of welfare, unemployment, SNAP, section 8, etc. to a BIG.

    If BIG eliminated those programs and I receive the same amount as these lazy losers, then I am all for it.

    Nick falling off the cliff was beyond dumb, especially since he was sober.  

    Guess the mom killed the dad?  She goes immediately down stairs out the door and onto the pier. Okay.

    Liked how Strand walked up and cut the line of the airplane girl in tow without a word to red mom.  She got stranded.

    Strand's character is like the only one that is believable.

    I think its suddenly a no-brainer that the Browns should take Goff now.  I think he has bust potential but they absolutely need a QB.  Its overthinking it to NOT draft Goff.  Goff doesn't have the massive cannon for an arm that Wentz has but it is not a weak arm either.   Goff is very smart and reads the field very very VERY well.  Much better than Wentz.  Goff is actually a VERY accurate Quarterback too.  His deep ball is very accurate (its just not a MASSIVE cannon), and that accuracy will prevent teams from stacking the box.  


    The bottom line is Goff will read defenses and find the open man, and also hit the deep ball to open up the passing game and running game.  It would be VERY "Browns" like to pass on him for a right tackle or trade down considering their needs.  


    Wentz is a stud but you don't take Goff, why even have a team?

    They are positioning themselves to #### up yet another draft. If the pass on QB, Hue will be gone at the end of 2017.

    The NFL doesn't care.  That's why if players can pass one test during the window when they know they'll be tested they can do whatever they want.

    That pretty much is in agreement with post #2 by spider321. All you have to do is have an IQ high enough to figure out when you can get high and you are good to go.
