  • The report that RIM nixed takeover queries from Amazon (AMZN) and others only confirms that RIMM management is "ignoring both reality and the need to act as shareholder fiduciaries," Eric Savitz reacts. "I’m actually not sure what is more shocking: the idea that Amazon was interested in buying RIM, or the fact that RIM cut them off and said no."  [View news story]
    or the fact that shares jumped after the news... ???

    Ryan, any concern about rising corn futures in 2012? This is something that seems to directly effect PEP numbers. Moreso than KO

  • Netflix’s (NFLX) subscriber debacle may turn a corner this quarter, but Lazard reiterates its Neutral rating and advises holding off on the stock, given the company may lose half a billion dollars expanding internationally. A 17% "gross subscriber" addition rate in 2012 would be enough to cover the 70%-80% rise in the cost to NFLX for streaming video content, Lazard says.  [View news story]
    where in the world is the 70-80% rise in streaming cost coming from? a few seasons of tv shows and a handful of B movies?? (not impressed) double the streaming content and you MIGHT get that 17% increase in subscribers.

  • We need to stop bashing rich people and big business, says Jamie Dimon. Our country is the greatest in the world, and our businesses are world class institutions that provide a wealth of products, employment and services. Our focus should be on dealing with the "bad apples" in the bunch, not denigrating entire institutions. Owning a big business doesn't make you evil, and just because you're rich, doesn't mean you're bad. (audio)  [View news story]
    jstratt, you seem like a smart guy. do you take 100% responsibility for your actions? yes? awesome then you must understand that the USA is changing hands to a new generation. and with a sale of such proportion, there will always be devious people who try to profit by doing the wrong things. just remember, us who profit by doing the right things receive far greater reward than just $$. decades from now when jamie dimon is an old geyser we'll laugh at the fact that he thought he could take over the world by fraud and deceit.

    the fallout would be horrendous, but it would definitely be a much needed wash out. time frame? pssh who knows. some countries dont recover from something that severe for decades. also i wonder who would be the first to go? BAC comes to mind

    Native we agree more than you notice. but yes we do disagree on many topics (which usually leads to great debate). Im a young guy, i save my pennies. am i prepared for what would happen should the safety nets be removed? (f*** it. bring it. we need it.) i do trust my ability to adapt to changing economic environments. and thats what seems to be a big issue here.. the majority of US citizens dont know how to make adjustments to their spending, saving, and borrowing. big business' do though and thats where we are seeing the disconnect. general public is frustrated, lets take it out on the royalty (big business). i say lets stop massaging royalty so the general public will be forced to shut their mouths and adapt on their own for once.

    "...business creators value independence, freedom and liberty from the tyranny of government "

    some business creators have turned that freedom into a game danf. and when a few jacka**** start toying with the american people, the gov't will always step in to "save the day". this helps them gain votes, and makes other business creators very afraid.

    all the apples arent bad. but the bad ones get a shiny new coat whenever they cant maintain themselves. so whats to stop a good apple, from turning bad? remove the safety net(s) and you have a much stronger batch of apples.

  • It's not about the taxes, Mr. President, it's your tone, Leon Cooperman contends. His complaint has less to do with the substance of taxing the wealthy - he says he wouldn't mind paying more - than it does Pres. Obama's choice of words in promoting it, an emphasis that he says is “villainizing the American Dream... We are supposed to admire success in this country."  [View news story]
    if i knew the answer to that, we'd all know the answer to that

    maybe if there was more focus on ACTION and not WORDS, you REPUBS could find a better candidate to challenge the man you so despise.
