Sticking With Discount Brokers

I still would not rule out an E*Trade takeover. The discount brokers that I own -- namely, E*Trade (ETFC) and Schwab (SCHW) -- have traded well over the last few days. For those that have a negative market outlook, taking some profits makes some sen...

More on Morgan

El Capitan's positive view and my short can be reconciled. Jim "El Capitan" Cramer wrote a column this afternoon updating his positive view on Morgan Stanley (MS). In reality Jim and I share a positive intermediate-term view on MS shares. The differ...

Game of DARTs

Schwab's growth in daily average revenue trades underperformed E*Trade's. This morning Schwab (SCHW) reported its January daily average revenue trades (DARTs). It is interesting to note that the company's DARTs rose by only 8% from December vs. E*Tr...

What to Own and How Much

I continue to believe that quality companies are on sale. So far, the Cassandras' predictions of global collapse and failure have been proven false. Some of the most notorious bears are now turning bullish and revising their forecasts to the positiv...

Busy Day

I've pressed several exisiting positions today. Today's trades include adding to shorts in SPDR S&P 500 (SPY), Morgan Stanley (MS) and American Express (AXP) and longs in KKR Financial (KFN), E*Trade (ETFC) and International Flavors & Fragrances (IF...

Speculative Portfolio Moves

I would be replacing Charming Shoppes, Brocade and Ford with MGIC Investment, KKR Financial and a player to be named later. Housekeeping item: I have sold out more of my Charming Shoppes (CHRS) long. In looking at my speculative basket from back in ...

E*Trade Fills the Gap

Speculative Friday (Part Deux)

Back in late November I created a speculative Friday package. I wrote: "As an homage to Jim 'El Capitan' Cramer's 'Mad Money' Speculative Friday segment, I have assembled a basket of four sub-$10-a-share equities that might have appeal for aggressiv...

E*Trade Hones In

Most investor classes have massively de-risked. Today's dominant investor classes -- individual investors, hedge funds and pension funds -- have de-risked and are relatively uncommitted to equities. A re-allocation into stocks (and out of bonds) rep...

Sticking With E*Trade

I see little risk and lots of upside in the brokerages. This is interesting: E-Trade Financial (ETFC), which has often been rumored to be a potential takeover target of rival TD Ameritrade (AMTD), named Frank Petrilli its new chairman. He replaces C...

How to Trade E*Trade?

I still don't quite have a handle on what to do with this name. I am still trying to figure out what to do with E*Trade (ETFC). The quarter was poor, but the shares are trading at a reasonably large discount to private market value. That said, there...
