  • Nvidia Is A $12 Stock Worth $18: A Sum Of The Parts Analysis [View article]
    Solid article. You can argue with a multiple choice here or fact there but the margin of safety is decent enough to initiate a position. I am not as bullish as you are but long with covered calls can yield value.

  • 3 Ex-Dividend Opportunities: Is The 40% Yielder For Real? [View article]
    Thank you for the comment.

    To clarify, I mentioned that the 40% yield was calculated by annualizing the monthly distribution and that "I do not expect the yield to stay this high". I do address that the distribution is variable when I stated "even if the stock faces the expected seasonal weakness the yield will still be extremely high and at the worst case yields over 6.5% for this quarter alone." My entire article's premise was to point out that the yield of 40% is not indeed "real", hence the article title.

  • Just Sell Apple If You Are Nervous [View article]
    Suppliers are having difficulty meeting Apple's elevated quality standards for the iPhone 5 which relate to the new materials used in the phone (primarily the aluminum back). The supply of iPhones is greater than previous launches but the demand has been even greater.

    Are you comparing the sale of a $329+ piece of hardware to a $40 software upgrade?

  • The AMD Buyout Rumor: Why It Had To Be Fake [View article]
    Using the insider selling as your proof that the rumor is fake is quite the stretch.

    The rumor not and "AMD Buyout Rumor" but simply that the company came to an agreement with JPM to "explore options". Engaging a bank to pursue strategic options would likely be undertaken by the board in conjunction with only the senior-most management (CEO and CFO). Ms. Su would likely have no knowledge. In addition, Mr. Craig's sales were AUTOMATED and were for small amounts.

    Lastly, AMD did not deny that it engaged JPM, the company simply said that it is "not actively pursuing a sale of the company or significant assets at this time." That is likely true - they will not begin consideration until JPM gets up to speed. Be careful when you proclaim any rumor to be 100% false or "bogus" with concrete evidence.

  • Western Digital Earnings Analysis: A Money-Printing Machine [View article]
    While no one can predict ten years into the future, the risks are low for two reasons. The costs of solid state are not predicted to decline enough to replace the extremely inexpensive hard disk drives. Secondly, at the rates that demand for storage are increasing, there will not be enough solid state storage in the world to meet demand.

    There is a preponderance of studies on the tax impact on trading surrounding the ex-dividend date. I will include one of the most comprehensive and recent which comes out of NYU

    I will not address this going forward.

  • Why You Should Buy Apple Before iPhone 5 Announcement [View article]
    The options are set to expire worthless (AAPL currently @ $693) and investors who sold the $695 weekly calls made over $400 per contract. Not bad for a weeks worth of work on top of the capital appreciation in the stock.
