  • Apple: $420 A Share Could Have Marked The Bottom [View article]

    Thank you for the great article. "Risk/reward profile of Apple is becoming increasingly positive". Well said! On the other hand, with Dow at 14514 high, Apple might become a buy when the market corrects and "flight-to-quality" begins, that is when cash becomes king again.

  • Can They Spare A Penny A Click For International Coverage? [View instapost]
    Some of the most lucrative investment opportunities are residing outside of U.S. and it would definitely benefit SA readers if there is a dedicated section for international investment opportunity.

    Perhaps, SA can consider an international expansion to partner with some international financial media and perhaps translate SA's articles into different languages. Thus, generating more revenue for SA and SA contributors and broaden SA's international reach.

    By all means, I love SA and it's always a great learning experiences to interact with SA contributors and readers.

    Yes, I make the same wish all the time.. But, opportunities will always be there in the stock market and the important thing is to keep improving and developing a lesser risk, higher reward system in the long-term.

    Good luck to us!

    Thank you for the comment and indeed, BBRY is not for conservative investors who seek stability. And that also makes BBRY so interesting to watch.

  • Stratasys: 3D Printing Growth Is Backed Up With Solid Numbers [View article]
    Thomas Renna,

    You are right. As I included in my article, "high P/E remains a concern". Investors definitely are looking more beyond the current numbers.

  • Impact Of Age, Income And Ethnicity On Smartphone Decisions [View article]

    Thanks for your comment.

    Yes, you are correct that could be very biased as I stated in the article, "This is could be a very biased comparison based on's Internet traffic data." However, users do visit to find out information for i products from PCs. Also, Android based users may be experiencing the same situation as Apple users when it comes to Alexa tool-bar.

  • Intel And CES: Moving Forward With Power Saving And Mobility [View article]

    Yes, take a look here, details on QCOM's Snapdragon 800 & 600. Also, a good article comparing the chips and update from CES

    "The Snapdragon 800 features Qualcomm's new quad-core Krait 400 CPU and latest 4G LTE Cat 4 modem, which combine with the Adreno 330 GPU, Hexagon v5 digital signal processor (DSP) for what the company claims is "up to 75 percent better performance than the Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor" currently on the market.

    The new parts mark Qualcomm's shift to the 28-nanometer process node for its Krait CPUs, which the company said teams up with dynamic power sensing and control to help keep the Snapdragon 800's thermals down to a dull roar while boosting performance levels. The Adreno 330 delivers double the performance of the current Adreno 320 GPU, according to Qualcomm, while the new Snapdragons now integrate 802.11ac Broad connectivity support for even faster Wi-Fi throughput.

    Qualcomm's also touting its new GPU as an UltraHD engine, capable of video capture, playback, and display at four times 1080p pixel density.

    The Snapdragon 800 series marks a new avenue for Qualcomm, because these parts run on higher power draws than the chips populating most of today's smartphones and tablets. These are SoCs that seem more likely to find their way into hybrid tablets and perhaps even full-blown laptops.

    The 600 series is the product line that looks to truly succeed current Qualcomm chips like the S4 Pro that turn up in many of the world's mobile devices. The 600 Series promises as much as 40 percent better performance than the S4 Pro but with the same power draw, the chip maker said. It's got a quad-core Krait 300 CPU that can hit 1.9GHz and a "speed-enhanced" Adreno 320 GPU.

    Snapdragon 600 chips are also coming out sooner than the Snapdragon 800 parts. Jacobs said to expect to see Snapdragon 600-based smartphones and tablets by the second quarter of this year, while the Snapdragon 800s won't be arriving until the second half. "

  • Corning's Gorilla Story Continues [View article]

    Thank you for your comment.

    Credit put spread provides some upside potential with a capped downside in the short-term. For stock investors, yes, buying at a discount will always give you some edges in the long-term.
