    Dennis,
    Are sales of Windows 8 really that bad?

    http://zd.net/1eSFACE

    These are "sell in" #'s that include OEM sales and upgrades, so maybe.
    I think Win 8 is in a "hate it or love it" situation (I'm using it now and love it), but the general consensus of people I have talked to give it a thumbs down.

    Why is $20 significant? GLW outperformed by double digits last year and it's returning over 6% versus a negative return for the market this year. It's already at $19 and it's only February of 2014.

    Single serve sodas? Could be good for "health reasons" in places like NY, and maybe even for the bottom line with higher margins on those single serve cups.

    That's what happens when you pay 40-50 times earnings for a stock that doesn't have the prospects to grow into that insane valuation.

  • Western Union: A Value Play With A Few Risks [View article]
    21520841,

    I'm not sure on an exact date, but WU's CEO said during the conference call that:

    "In the U.S., we are very pleased to increase our distribution through our new relationship with Walgreens. Walgreens is the largest drugstore chain in the country with over 8,000 locations and we will be adding our consumer money transfer and bill payment services there beginning in 2014 providing more choice and convenience for consumers."

    Might take some time though if they are just starting to roll it out now.

    Dividend Herder,

    Thanks for reading.
    Management noted that 75% of cash flows are tied up overseas. I think that temporarily this might effect dividend growth. The buyback is already looking like it will be reduced and when management says it wants to "keep its investment grade credit" I think there could be some concerns. Maybe not a big deal, but I don't see this as stable and "safe" as a traditional dividend growth stock.

    Never a bad thing to take some off the table.
    I think AAPL looks good as well, same with MO. I've been buying shares of MO over the last couple of weeks, at 14 times earnings it looks good. Especially if you look into its stake in SAB Miller.

    I think that KSU is still expensive in relation to earnings even after that drop. I'm still considering CSX, but with the overall market dropping lately I'm going to wait and see what happens.

    A seller on Ebay can pass those fees on to its customers in a more subtle way, buyers are more wary of noticeable fees on things like collectibles.
