  • Devon Energy: Seasonal Trends Indicate Significant Upside From Here [View article]
    Cars are mostly driven by gas(oil). Electricity generators use gas(oil) to recharge electric cars. GM sells record cars in China. Ford has record sales in America. In short, I personally think that demand of gas(oil) would keep climbing globally. (So is world temperature.) According to demand and supply equation, if demands of gasoline keep going up, how is it possible that gas(oil) price keeps falling(down to $50bl)? Sorry, I just can't comprehend.
    Brent, thank you for your article which comes timely that help me decide the buy/hold/sell of DVN. Now, I'll double down on this company instead of considering unloading it due to continue price decline.

  • Update: GE Nears Deal To Sell Appliance Business To Electrolux For $2.5 Billion [View article]
    JMReno, thank you for the reminder. Yes, GE has been performing miserably for many years. It was down to the teens as recently as 2012. Now it has been inching up to the high 20's. I'm still waiting and hoping that the company will break out from its cocoon. For now it is a dividend investment for me.

  • Update: GE Nears Deal To Sell Appliance Business To Electrolux For $2.5 Billion [View article]
    My kitchen is equipped with all GE stainless steel appliances. They all function as they should be for almost 10 years and counting. "GE brings good life" has been promoted for ages. Sorry that this American icon is not changing hand to a foreign company. However as GE investor, I agree that this low margin and highly competitive business should be shed from the company. If such a sale cannot bring profit to investors, at the least, it might stop a potential financial loss from this household product. Long GE, especially under a new management.

  • We Think Cramer Has This Retail Stock Wrong [View article]
    It's not a parallel comparison to put TGT and HD together. If it's confirmed that HD has been hacked like what was done to TGT, buyers still will go to HD for product price, service and selections, since there are a lot fewer competitors in that building material retail market. Housing is still booming nation wide. HD sales projection are sound. If HD stock has gone down, it's only an instant reaction to a bad news. It's only a hiccup. Long Home Depot. Thank you for the contribution.

  • Microsoft's Acquisition Of Nokia: Deal Gone Wrong? Probably Not [View article]
    Recently I read an international news about thousands of Chinese high school students attending government sponsored college entrance examination. Exam Security confiscated many student cellphones which could be used for cheating. They were ALL Nokia phones. For a decade, Ballmer had done some wrongs to Microsoft. Being a long investor, I know what he did. His Nokia buy was a disaster? Only time can tell. I hope he did this one right. Thank you for the objective article.

  • The One Reason Why McDonald's Crazy Bagged Coffee Idea Makes Sense [View article]
    As far as I know, there's a brand name coffee stand inside each grocery stores in all cities - Starbucks etc. Since Mac coffee is being recognized as one of the best coffee in the market, I have been wondering why Big Mac does not pick up the trend and sell retail coffee in grocery stores - coffee, apple pie, ice cream(they once had it in some MacDonald etc.) on top of selling bagged coffee there? Puzzling.

  • The One Reason Why McDonald's Crazy Bagged Coffee Idea Makes Sense [View article]
    I prefer Mac Cafe over Starbucks. Its coffee has better quality and value. However, I seldom buy Mac burgers because I have other choices of better quality and value. If hamburger is its core business, Mac Donald better improves its overall product quality before it can stop losing its market share to its competitors. Now its US CEO is replaced, maybe its also time to replace its Exec. Chef and head of the quality control branch. I sold MCD last year. I'll buy back in if the new CEO starts measures to improve product quality. Thank you for your meaningful contribution.

  • Right On Target [View article]
    During the last couple of months, I have seen at least three Walmart Stores popped up in and around my neighborhood - full size store and food mart. It's on-line orderings are growing very fast. Even my son who has patronized TGT is now ordering his food and merchandise from WMT on line. I like TGT and would it to see it shine again since more competition out there is better for the consumers. The new CEO needs to act real fast, or the downward spiraling will be unstoppable. WMT will keep taking market shares and its customers from TGT. Thank you for the contribution.

  • Franchisees want simplicity at McDonald's [View news story]
    IN-AND-OUT is highly successful local hamburger chain with very simple menu, hamburger and fresh fries, hamburger and fresh fries, and more hamburger and fresh fries. People are loving it, hot, fresh, juicy and tasty. Carl's Junior also makes consistently very good hamburger of good value. In comparison, Big Mac is dull, dry and lukewarm. You pick it up and it falls apart - chopped onion and thinly sliced lettuce falling out. Just like JD in NJ said: Make a burger customers actually WANT. It's the quality that counts, not quantity. I like to see the old grand Mac to be successful. Time for them to sell a burger that everyone wants to buy. Best of luck.

  • General Electric: Changing Its Massive Momentum [View article]
    GE has reached $27.44 on June 9! Your article is a zig-zag , a happy wanderer. Quite a few articles here depict GE on the upside, heavy back-logs, signing more jet engine contracts, getting rid of GE financial etc. pointing to a good prospect for the company. I guess these successful events don't mean a thing in your GE evaluation.

  • Finding The New Microsoft In The Nadella Memo [View article]
    Trashing Microsoft strategy only shows that this company is gaining grounds on Google and Apple at all fronts, that the "Goolers" and "Applers" are afraid of. Play it fair, let the products and results speak for themselves. Long MSFT.
