  • Pandora: Internet Radio's Apple? [View article]
    Opinions are worth more than facts, because opinions are not already priced into the market. Amateurs trade on facts-this is a fact.

    I respect my readers enough to know that they will decide for themselves. I simply point things out. I don't feel it would be worthwhile for me to obsessively spell out my last two points, and I am transparent about this. It is more efficient for the readers to check out such things for themselves.

    I presented reasoning in accompaniment with my claim that the comparison is important. You cannot begin an indictment of my claim without beginning an indictment of the reasoning behind it.

  • Pandora Media: Analyzing 3Q Financial Results [View article]
    I see a lot of numbers, but none of them incorporate the stock price. By your reasoning, Pandora is a buy at $10 and a buy at $40.

    It is ironic that you utilize the term "waste" to attack a renewable energy company. Much of your work is good, but you're missing the point, and should error towards agnosticism on anything energy.

    I'm just saying, if you want to increase your life expectancy at the cost of your quality of life, there are things you can do like caloric restriction. Most of us aren't going to trade quality of life for life extension.

  • Pandora Does Something Some Said Couldn't Be Done: Posts A Profit [View article]
    The reason they're declining is because they were among first movers who didn't have to deal with much competition. As the competition inevitably increases...

    I'm not sure you're talking about my article at this point.

    So Varchild you're saying sell stocks after they go down and buy stocks after they go up?

    Thank you for your thoughtful comments. Looking through the comments you make on Seeking Alpha I can see that you consider the details and the big picture. As you know, the market prices all known information into it and it is virtually impossible to find a risk-free profit (unless you're buying insurance on credit default swaps from GS). I share your view that people can be irrational. I seek out these irrational people so that I can take the other side of their bets. I sincerely believe that betting against dumb ideas is perhaps one of the lowest risk ways of beating the market. The nuclear question is mostly an international one; it's not about new construction in the US. Ultimately people will be forced into rationality by pure supply/demand. Of course, nothing's guaranteed.

    Trust me, the Republicans have forgotten about terrorists. Iran doesn't count.

    We're so far ahead homeostasis requires us to decline.

  • Pandora Media 3Q11 Earnings Preview: Growth And Innovation Amid Competition [View article]
    If Pandora and Pandora's competitors are eating radio's lunch, why not short radio, instead of betting on which streaming company will come out of the swamp ahead?
