  • Notable Micro Cap Stock Insider Buys This Week [View article]
    Thanks for the comment. The list is just a jumping board for finding good microcap stocks. I agree with you that how many people buy, and how much they buy both matter. Both should be put in the perspective of the executives' compensation.

    It is unfortunate that a Seeking Alpha Editor decided the list is of not much value without me describing each stock in detail, since "anybody can screen it". So I won't be able to publish the list on a weekly basis any more.

  • Chipotle Mexican Grill: Strong Sell [View article]
    The average hedge fund return in the first quarter was 4%. S&P 500 index had a 11% return in that quarter. You trust these "institutions" to be smart money? The same institutions were busy pumping Crocs and Netflix a few years ago. I don't know if they made a bundle from pumping and dumping, or they got trapped and lost their shirts. It doesn't matter. All bubbles burst.

    Here's another article comparing these three cases:

  • Research in Motion (RIMM +4.1%) pops going into the close on reports that the company is in discussions to hire investment bankers to examine strategic options.  [View news story]
    I find it a bit funny anybody can still have hope in RIM. RIM will be lucky if a sucker buys it, which is what most bag holders are wishing for.

    BB10 is non starter now that big three have all piled on. And no, buildup of inventory does not mean RIM can sell at cost.

    We should come back to re-visit whatever remains of RIM in a year.

    Well, it's all about looking forward, not backwards, isn't it? RIM is dead -- It has no resources to compete with the big sharks. It now lags the market in both hardware and software. BB10 no longer matters.

    Microsoft is the only one with the resources, the motivation, and the customer base (PC Windows) to compete. I also agree with one of the earlier comments that Android is too fragmented and has very little real support from Google. It stands to lose most into the future.

    "On many days we're now getting fewer BB users than Windows Phone 7 users, and we don't even have a Windows Phone 7 app!"

    RIM's free cash flow was negative last year. It has been piling up inventory while sales have been declining. Those who think RIM has cash, think again. That cash will be burnt out within a year.
    This is my opinion:

    This is a piece of useful news: "On many days we're now getting fewer BB users than Windows Phone 7 users, and we don't even have a Windows Phone 7 app!"

    This genius predicted the death of BB as an OS back on Feb 14, 2011 on his website.

    My point being, it's 2012, and some still don't realize that RIM was dead in 2010. Nothing can save RIM now.

    Stock investment is all about forward looking. RIM was dead in 2010. It will be lucky to be acquired at above $5 billion, or it's going to go Chapter 11 in a couple of years.

    I meant it's similar to how Microsoft became successful in game console. This big tech stalwart seems to always need a "take three" to get things sorted out.
