  • Deep Discount Strategy For Apple: Initial Price Target [View article]
    Hi Montie,

    Yes, I've been steadily adding to my position on any dips to around $500. AAPL is still a good long term hold in my opinion.

  • The Truth About Robin Raina's Ebix: Part I [View article]
    David - I too found the "attaboy" from SA to be out of place (and really a bit odd to be honest), but didn't take the time to air my views on this. You've captured what I was thinking very well though - thanks.

  • Very Undervalued Stock Yielding 5% Plus A 7.3% 'Special Dividend' [View article]
    Good article. Despite what the numbers show with respect to increasing EPS, etc. I just can't get past the fact that absolutely no one I know smokes, and that smoking is such a social stigma these days.

  • How To Position Your Stock Portfolio To Win With Rising Interest Rates [View article]
    Some great advice. I am looking to transition a portion of my portfolio to fixed income (bonds) but agree with you that now is perhaps not the best time to do so.

  • Caterpillar: Buy Now As The Shares Have Bottomed Out [View article]
    Great article SG. I recently conducted a detailed analysis of CAT on my blog as well, and looked at several valuation techniques in the process. My valuation came out to about $91 at the moment, so it is indeed trading at a bit of a discount. Usually I would like more of a safety factor, but given that this is a solid dividend growth stock I did buy in at the 83.50 level.

    Excellent article. I too initiated a new position in CVX recently, despite trading at all time highs. I agree with the points made in your article. Good work.

    If you do a "whois" query on their website, the website was only registered a few days ago (Feb. 16) so it appears this "company" was created simply to publish this article.

    Well, finally hit our entry target today. Some of the fundamentals have changed since I originally wrote this article so be sure to use due diligence before entering.

    Thanks very much snagit! Yes, we're not too far off now. I still plan to enter once the target entry price is hit. I think there's a very good possibility of that happening over the next few weeks - let's see.

  • Crossroads: Which Direction Is Microsoft Headed? [View article]
    Interesting comment - thanks. Yes, I've been keeping an eye on Yahoo as well now that Mayer is at the helm. If anyone can turn it around I think it's her. Will be interesting to see how this agreement with Yahoo plays out and whether both companies can come out stronger as a result.

  • Crossroads: Which Direction Is Microsoft Headed? [View article]
    Hi Paul - Yes, those "Apply guy vs. PC guy" commercials really did a great job in portraying Windows PCs as uncool. I agree though that now that Microsoft has the right mix of products to appeal to the younger crowd and if they put some solid advertising behind it, they will go a long way.

    Hi Techy - thanks for the comment. It's always nice to get some validation for an idea and glad that you agree with me. Yes, it will be interesting to see how things pan out over the next year or so.

  • Microsoft: This Sell-Off Is Bogus [View article]
    Thanks for the great article and I agree with most of your points. I too have upgraded all of my PCs to Windows 8, and also bought a surface. It's great how they all sync together. It's really what I was missing with from the apple products. I have an iPhone and an iPad as well, but my work computers are all windows based. Having MS-Office available on the surface is huge!

    Microsoft also has many other avenues for increasing profit over the next few years. They are changing their Xbox line of consoles from pure gaming to complete media center including music, videos/movies, and this will sync with Windows 8 devices as well. In short, Microsoft is now in a position to offer the complete package of software and devices that cover all worlds: work, media/entertainment, gaming, and shopping.
