  • Google's Search Engine Contract With Apple Is Coming To An End [View article]
    Not at all. they did the same with their map systems (failed). Lucky for Google that Apple considers Microsoft to be their Nemesis.

    Would be interesting to see if Apple would be smart enough to get in that space by acquiring some promising startup in that field (maybe DuckDuckGo?)

    the entire Search space is fascinating, now that Facebook got rid of Bing.

    You are wrong. Since C level receive qualified stock options which are taxes can capital gains only when stocks are sold.
    http://bit.ly/1tBuJyJ

    the state level tax is indeed a factor. So the worst case scenario (non-qualified stock options) the marginal tax rate is 47%.

    the 39.2% is the 40% in ourconservative calculation. He also included state tax which may bring the total tax bill to as high as 47% (1-0.396)*(1-0.124).

    Regardless to tax issue we're discussing, we hope you understand that when an insider exercises options he pays the option price which is (in this case) 7.75$ . he sold them for $42 (not $41 as you claimed). However you look at it, the CEO took a very nice amount of cash home and reduced his exposure to HLF. You can agree or disagree but this is the bottom line. good luck on whatever position you have.

  • Twitter up 2.5% on JPMorgan upgrade [View news story]
    Analyst Doug Amnouth of JP Morgan is ranked 5 stars at TipRanks with a success rate of 69% on stocks he rated "Buy" or "Sell". in the last year he was neutral on Twitter which makes it hard to determine his knowledge on his prediction capabilities on this specific stock.
