  • A Once In A Generation Change For Stocks [View article]
    It's not about bringing the wealthy down but rather bringing the 95% up.
    Inequality will always be present, and in fact could get worse, as any improvement for the masses will trickle up to the wealthy via a strong economy and increased earnings. Nothing wrong with that and hopefully everyone will prosper.

    But any results will be short-lived due to a financially illiterate population, many of which have no desire to save a dime. Big screen TV's, fancy cars and trucks with eight-year loans and junk food rule the day.

    What does this mean for the markets? It doesn't matter to me - I will continuing investing based on the long-term fundamentals of each investment.

  • IBM: A 'Startup' On The Verge Of Monetizing The New Era Of Computing [View article]
    Thanks for reading my article. Like I said, the Bears and Bulls are very divided on this one! While share buybacks are great, and other financial engineering is indeed present, I am counting on new technology and it's vast potential. That, combined with agile management and huge resources, should get revenue rising again. I wish I could provide more analysis as to how much and when but that is truly unknown. Hence the "startup" tag.

    The big moat may or may not exist but Buffett's biggest reason to buy anything is good management and I think it is in place here. And yes, without an office in the executive suite, we must trust them to produce. Same as any other company.
