  • Procter & Gamble - No Reason To Worry Over Wells Fargo's Downgrade [View article]
    The latter.

    I was already a buyer of PGs shares would have dipped in recent months, and will continue to do so. I don't own any shares at this point in time.

  • Wells Fargo - Solid Results, But What About The Risk-Return Appeal? [View article]
    WFC has a strong capital position. While it could pay out some more cash to investors while remaining above regulatory levels, I think management should be applauded for carrying some extra cash.

    It is this solid position and perceived strength by the market which acts as a real strength during a recession. This excess cash allow for the avoidance of significant dilution at low prices, and actually allowed WFC for instance to make a killer deal with Wachovia during the recession.

  • AbbVie: Barclays Is Late To Upgrade, Using Highly Favorable Assumptions [View article]
    If you subtract the cash the d/e on an accounting basis is close to 1 .The remaining debt is equivalent to one year's of profits, so not that does not worry me.

    Alternatively, if they would issue 5% more stock and use all the cash they have (assuming it was held at home) they could pay off all their debts.

  • AbbVie: Barclays Is Late To Upgrade, Using Highly Favorable Assumptions [View article]
    Net debt is limited after considering the cash holdings of the firm as well.

    While the absolute amount is huge, it is very limited to the equity of the business. Issuing debt at current low interest rates is ¨fashionable¨ these days, preferably used to pay high dividends or repurchase shares.

  • Qualcomm - Goldman Takes Some Profits, Remains Long-Term Bullish [View article]
    Since November when GS put the stock on the list, QCOM has risen about ten bucks. As such it has moved pretty much in line with NDAQ.

  • CarMax - Great Results And Even Better Track Record Come At A Too Steep Price [View article]
    No idea really. Companies are messing around big times nowadays with fiscal year, calendar years and broken accounting years. It is hard to keep track with all of this.

  • Potbelly: Sell-Off Is Warranted On Lack Of Growth And Earnings [View article]
    It's hitting $11 now, big momentum indeed.

    While this could happen, management has lost a lot of credibility already.

    Thanks for the comment. I have a strong sense that management is overpromising regarding the long term targets.

  • Archer Daniels Midland - A Much Rumored Deal Has Finally Become Reality [View article]
    Could be, I don't know the company that well.

    I see the company is located in Canada, with ADM clearly focusing outside of North America at the moment.

  • AbbVie: Barclays Is Late To Upgrade, Using Highly Favorable Assumptions [View article]
    Slide 25 from presentation ¨Presentation regarding AbbVie’s proposed combination with Shire¨

    I might be mistaken here as it reads ¨Near-term launch of HCV therapy in US and EU and participation in a market estimated to exceed $12
    billion in annual revenues worldwide beginning in 2015¨

    Given that GILD should be able to run at $10bn easily this year, I must have understood that AbbVie sees its market that big. My mistake.

  • ServiceMaster - Disappointing Public Offering For This Debt-Loaded Private Equity 'Exit' [View article]
    Thanks, that's good information regarding off-balance sheet liabilities. I was cautious already, this makes me even more cautious.

  • Bank Of America - As Deutsche Turns Bullish, I Remain Cautious [View article]
    Given the dilution since 2007, that would translate into a $80-$90 price target for the ¨old¨ BAC adjusting for dilution. Just saying.
