Default Investment Opportunity?...Stock Pick Possibilities

Given that this article is somewhat accurate...which IMO is pretty accurate...If you had a large sum of money to invest...what would you buy??? Bottled Water? Pipe manufacturers? plastics? etc.... Seems as if it could be a great investment opportunity.

Hey Country!

I'm a bilge rat, (with some background in investments), who happened ta see yer thread on my way down yonder. That said: there is a rule of thumb in investing. If ya read somethin' in the ol' non financial Newspaper or see it on the ol' non financial Boooooooooob tube, it is way tooooooooooooo late, as the big $ are already positioned with their longs n' are waitin' fer the dim wits who suck up loads o' Kool aid ta take their $ n' drive up the price of the big $ guy's longs so they can make those big $.

That's how it werks in the real world of investments. If ya wanna ponder water shortage, China has one of the worst problems in the whole world, (the locals always carry water on their person ta drink durin' the day) as most of their water resources are as polluted as it gets on this particular planet, n' the investment climate there in all things is as spectacular as any place on this planet.

The MSMBC article ya posted is actually a political article about Kool aid fer dim wits n' the authors are lookin' fer more of yer tax dollars n' the correspondin' CENTRAL CORNTROL it will bring, not about any investment opportunity, (which would be hard ta find a "play" in this deal, IMHO).

Domestic investments in domestic water supplies are very capital intensive low return items usually heavily regulated n' done with lots o' tax $. Yer bein' softened up fer higher taxes: my friend.

The dollar is very weak, so domestic plays that werk may only keep ya even with the money yer losin' right now!

NOT A RECOMMENDATION, (as I only have one functional brain cell anyway), my overpriced $.02, JR

Political Article ehh? Not sure that I buy that. I personally feel that what it is stating is accurate....I may be wrong. One cant deny the water shortages going on especially in Atlanta for example. You may be correct in what you stated about the big money already positioned...dunno, im no expert and dont claim to be one.

Only two things in life is for sure and that is paying taxes and dieing.There are only three thinks in life is needed for,O2,food and water.Out of those three things,only one will cost you more in our life time and that is food!If you are looking at longs,put your money there!

I had looked at water company stocks over a year ago and I had washed them out.No money then and no money to be made now!Just like tech stocks.Not many of them pay any moneys out!The only way to make any money is;your are betting that X stock will go up over time,same as playing at a Blackjack table.Sometimes you win and more times you loose!Thats techs for you!

Political Article ehh? Not sure that I buy that.

Ya don't think so eh?

Well I've spent a few years in the investment bidness n' I can recognize a political call to action when I see one.

Let's just start with the title of the piece: "Crisis feared as US water supplies dry up", a rather startlin' lil' statement don't ya think?

Let's try another shall we? "Government PROJECTS at least 36 states will face shortages within five years".

N' about this lil' gem in the middle of the article: "Across America the picture is CRITICALLY CLEAR the nations freshwater supplies can no longer quench its thirst".


I personally feel that what it is stating is accurate....I may be wrong.

Dunno if yer wrong or right, (dunno you or where yer from or if yer area is dry or much about yer particular perspective). [If you were from central Texas as apposed to Georgia or Florida you may not agree with the article's call ta action]. That's the mark of a good political call ta action by the Liberal MSM; what is important to the authors are that ya FEEEEEEEEEL it is an accurate assessment of the situation so that ya willingly open yer wallet and accept the proposed CORNTROL that the article proposes as a solution to all our problems, (until the next crisis comes up).

The real neat trick the Liberals have pulled off over the last few years is they have blamed mean spirited Republicans fer the weather. They have this real rich Buffoon feller livin' real large n' flyin' private jets n' winnin' Nobel prizes n' all. N' they are payin' the Buffoon fees fer "carbon credits" n' all ta ad to the Buffoon's $90 Million $ plus net worth so the Buffoon can build a bigger house ta promote more Buffoonery.


One cant deny the water shortages going on especially in Atlanta for example.

I don't ever try to deny the obvious, I just question the cornclusion that 36 states are in dire shortages or that US water supplies will dry up in the next five years. I have observed that periods of wet and dry tend ta happen over time in this huge Country that we live in: that's all.

You may be correct in what you stated about the big money already positioned...

I did give ya a correct assessment, (based on past real life experiences), of how investment opportunities displayed in non financial media tend ta play out over time.

dunno, im no expert and dont claim to be one.[/QUOTE]

I'm no "expert" nor do I claim ta be one either, (I did further state that I only have one functional brain cell as well)! I did not mean ta pick on ya personally, I was just using yer very interestin' "call ta action" Liberal MSM grow all aspects of CENTRAL CORNTROL article ta point out the author's "CRITICALLY CLEAR" (ta use the author's own words), intentions.

Ya see, I feel that freedom is never free. One must always ponder the various ways others try ta take yer life's energy, (that's taxes: Mrs. Jones), fer their own purposes. The media and politicians are werkin' ya all the time whether ya notice it or not, (obvious, [at least ta me] in this particular piece), my friend! Thanks fer yer reply, Respectfully, JR
