    Kevin,

    I think GILD's off day has more to do with Alibaba. Huge IPO is sucking the air out of all the "risk on" stocks and indices...including Russell 2000, NASDAQ, the biotech sector, Tesla, Netflix.....if its gets under $100 will add some....under 13 times this year's earnings with continuing growth drivers ahead....

    Difference is they are like Microsoft that consumers will use them even if there might be other products....I do agree with you there... It is telling that Google Wallet could not get the same deal with banks as Apple just apparently did. Like I said, not the screaming buy it was 14 months ago.....but should continue to outperform market given growth drivers and low valuation....JMTC.

    Worked as a technology director at Amex for years...huge severance package and stock option gains launched this nice little journey into semi-retirement (Great benefits at Mother Amex and very nice people as well)....However, its litany of big splashy announcements in the technology space that lead to nothing is legendary (Blue Card, online banking, one stop financial marketplace, etc...). Even its vaunted Membership Rewards platform has caused billions in write-offs over the years as it can never account for redemption rates accurately from an actuarial basis. This is a great marketing company that is fortunate to occupy the highest tier of consumer in this age of wealth inequality.

    The Chief Risk Officer actually blamed FICO for not adjusting their algorithms fast enough during the financial crisis for Amex's huge write offs during the period...........and yes, he is still there. Lots of reason to buy AAPL here, its partnership with Amex is not a material one.

    Glad you got that one.

    Earlier this year I joined with Investors Alley to start a new kind of small cap investment research publication, called Small Cap Gems - and yes AVNR was one of our initial recommendations. The letter focuses on small cap stocks expected to significantly outperform the overall market. With Small Cap Gems we dig deeper into stocks and sectors than I am normally in a position to with Seeking Alpha. And we follow them in our portfolio for a longer time as well.

    If you’d like to check out one of my newer portfolio additions just go to tinyurl.com/smallcapge...

    Or, if you’d just like to dive in and give Small Cap Gems a try then go here instead: tinyurl.com/smallcapge...

    Thank you and Happy Hunting.
