  • What A High Beta Means For Apple [View article]
    I am SHOCKED that Apple has a higher beta than Netflix! Wow.
    personally I'm not into options that you mentioned, which obviously become more valuable with higher betas.
    For an interesting bull/bear scenario for Apple here is a pretty good one

    Thanks for the column, still shaking my head on NFLX/AAPL

  • Mobile Platform War: Why Microsoft Is Likely A Winner, Again [View article]
    Dunno about Microsoft being a winner in mobile 'again" as your title puts it. This might be the first time they have anything good going for them in mobile.
    Would Softy be better off sending Bing to Facebook to concentrate on mobile??

    Obviously, windows 8, and the new phone is a huge bet!
