  • Microchip Technology Inc: A Dividend Idea In The Semiconductor Space [View article]
    Alan, thank you for bringing it up. There was a delay in the publication of the article. Any thoughts on the earnings? I would like to hear more about the impact on earnings than "macro economic conditions" that seem to be the easy excuse for everyone.

  • Starbucks: Positive Catalysts For Your Radar Screen [View article]
    Thanks. I personally prefer McDonald's coffee over SBUX but I think SBUx has a lot going for itself for the long run.

    And the bond, hopefully not a convert to further dilute the stock, will have to mature after 2016. The top 3 holders of the 2016 cvts will not allow anything maturing before them. Why not just go to JP morgan and issue a credit line??

  • Whole Foods Market - A Healthier Business For Your Radar Screen [View article]
    If stores like Best buy and Barnes and noble give up some of their retail space, WFM should grab it. It will help to be in a location that is either a strip mall or just a mall. There is a WFM inside a mall in columbus circle in NY. It does very well. Getting food there is still cheaper than sitting down at restaurant in the city, and its a convenient place to shop for food between shopping. they need to get away from the stand alone model.

  • Starbucks Stock Looking Hot And Toasty [View article]
    MCD might also be a nice way to hedge against any food inflation or decline in consumer sentiment. Which make me think, maybe time to look at those restaurants off highways. Do higher gas prices impact them?

  • Dark Knight Index: Batman's Success Really Matters [View article]
    Thank you all for your interest in this article.

    Mr. Muller: Yes, CKEC is definitely another exhibitor that could be worth investigating. I did not list it along with these other companies because of CKEC's smaller market cap relative to RGC and CNK. Unless I am writing specifically about stocks with smaller market caps, I tend to limit my screen to larger companies.

    DocEagle, Mr. MacDonald, rpscott, djoln: Thank you for addressing the erroneous information in this article. I misinterpreted the chart and will make sure not to repeat that mistake in the future.

    Hank890: Thank you for sharing your take on this series of films. Indeed, Hollywood (and filmmakers around the world) definitely have a long history of infusing divisive ideologies into their story-telling. From Birth of a Nation to Sullivan's Travels to V for Vendetta and The Dark Knight. I think this is a reflection of the importance of an ethos, a worldview, or an ideology in the story-telling process. The filmmakers must have a clear understanding of this worldview in order to create a film that is narratively and stylistically consistent and legible. In my opinion, the beauty of cinema is in its ability to communicate complex ideas through visual story-telling. And, as with any other media, it is the responsibility of the individual to take into account as many view points as possible in order to make the best-informed decision. Moreover, with this film and with all other films, I believe that a film, especially well-made films, are worth much more than their political ideologies. Separating the art from the "propaganda" or political bent of a film is how I can watch films, like those of Sergei Eisentstein, from as objective a view point as possible, in order to understand and appreciate the incredible craft of all those involved in the filmmaking process. Battleship Potemkin is one of the most visually stunning and compelling films from the silent era that I have ever seen. I think it is a wonderful film. And I am definitely not a Stalinist.

    One last note on the "Marxist propaganda" in TDKR. I would like to point to the fact that Bane is the villain in this film. And, as with the previous entry in this film, it is made very clear that Batman's ultimate goal is to leave behind his life as a vigilante while freeing Gotham from corruption and saving the citizenry from the totalitarian grip of super villains. Therefore, I propose that Batman is a freedom fighter, fighting for the life, liberty, and freedom from oppression of the citizens of Gotham, which seems to be very closely linked to the archetypal American patriot story. Had this film actually featured a Euro-inspired Marxist hero, we would likely have had a mass hero (like in Eisenstein's "Strike" or "Potemkin") rather than an iconic superhero that loves to work alone.

  • 6 Highly Undervalued Stocks With Bullish Short Trends [View article]
    Dave, take a look at our blog You'll find it offers similar screens with more in depth explanations.

    The ratio of stock price divided by free cash flow per share (P/FCF) is often used to compare the value of companies. As a general rule, P/FCF under 15 (or price is less than 15 times free cash flow per share) is considered “undervalued”, which means the stock may be trading at too low of a price and may rise in the future to properly reflect the free cash flow generated by the firm.
