  • Flappy Bird, Apple And Google, And The Rise Of Mobile Games [View article]
    I read he wanted to be a respected game developer, and other developers were criticizing him for stealing sprites from the Mario games. That may have gone into his decision to pull the game.

  • Nutrastar International: If It Sells At Net Cash Per Share, It Will Almost Triple In Price. [View article]
    If you look at their largest shareholders (http://yhoo.it/19EPRRm) NEW ZEALAND WAYNE'S INVESTMENT HOLDINGS CO., LTD. is the biggest by far.

    The company also used to be named SHUAIYI INTERNATIONAL NEW RESOURCES DEVELOPMENT INC. and changed its name back in 2011. http://1.usa.gov/19EPUN0

    The guy, Jinbo Cao, owned about the same amount of shares as he does now, looks like a little less than he used to because he has been selling.

    According to his LinkedIn, he's a VP of Wealth Management at CitiGroup. http://linkd.in/19EPUN2

    I am still not sure if I would ever buy a Chinese company, but definitely looks like an interesting situation.

  • 3 Reasons Yahoo Can't Touch Google [View article]
    mchiou I agree with your comment, as well as some of the points in the article. Yahoo will probably never be "a better overall company" than Google, but I am long Yahoo because its stock will outperform Google's over the next 5 years... which is exactly what I am looking for as an investor.

    Their financials are hilarious, especially the "loans payable" to the executives. Thanks for the article.

  • A Friendly Rejoinder To 'Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash' [View article]
    BPC - Got you, I read that as just operating cash flow. I agree, they must generate cash in order to remain in business. I think that they will be able to do so, and others do not. That is what makes a market.

  • A Friendly Rejoinder To 'Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash' [View article]
    BPC, I am seeing 25.8 million in operating cash flow for the first two quarters of 2013 (according to the number in the financials, it is negative if you back out the "other liabilities").

  • Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash [View article]
    I agree, any purchase of Tesla for the long-term is essentially betting on EV's. I may be skewed by being a member of the younger generation that wants to help save our planet, but I firmly believe that my generation will look for ways to curb our oil addiction. I have not met a single person yet that does not think the Model S is an awesome car, which is essentially where your business model should start: with the tangible products you sell, not the financial models built off of your previous financial performance.

  • Tesla: Be Ready For A Massive Crash [View article]
    With Tesla, you have to think of where they will be in 10 years. They are building a charging infrastructure across the entire continent, and will start doing the same in China and Europe. No other automakers are doing this that I know of, and even if they stop making cars completely, they will have first dibs on all of the real estate available for charging stations. Tesla has said they will not charge Tesla owners to use the stations, but it would make great business sense to charge owners of cars manufactured by other companies to use the stations. Musk himself has stated he invites competition in the EV market among other the other automakers, and the more electric cars there are on the road, the more Tesla will benefit in the long run because of their head start in building charging infrastructure.
