Another nice dip in Atd.b this morning. Still a bit high for my liking so I am just watching it.

I don't like bricks and mortar retailers, particularly of the box variety. They are also too late to online and will not do well there vs. Amazon.

I am assuming Wal-mart is the exception? They are #2 in US online sales and extremely competitive if not the leader in some areas overseas

I don't like Walmart either. I haven't researched Walmart in a while but from what I recall their online sales are declining on a percentage basis. Walmart will always rank highly on revenue due to sheer size and brand recognition. Growth is what you need to drive the share price.

Why not just buy Amazon?

I have DG, DLTR and TGT. Latter is a value play... I would consider WMT at 60 too. AMZN is to rich, great momo play, though.
After spending many years in Wall Street and after making and losing millions of dollars I want to tell you this: it never was my thinking that made the big money for me. It was always my sitting. Got that? My sitting tight!

huuuge move in Bonds.
shorting ZB and UB futures, small initial positions. I think they go higher to squeeze all shorts. As Gundlach said, expecting 2.2 on 10Y notes.

oh, yes. Taking profits in ES @2380..2384..2385. Shorting TF @1380. Have YM on offer at 20935

If you hold JNUG for the long run...you are in for some pain.

Indeed.

As a matter of fact...my post should say that holding JNUG at all could bring you some pain, but holding it for the long run will make it a certainty.

Anybody follows/holds/plans to buy CGI Group Inc. (GIB.A-T)? Out a few technology stocks I'm watching, it seems the most attractive now - yet has been a laggard over a year. Wonder if it'll have some catalyst to catch up?

I'm not an expert but do you think it's a little overpriced because their P/E is 17.79?
But I like how they have businesses around the globe.
