  • Sirius XM Radio (SIRI, LMCA) might have less to fear from Pandora and Apple than some make out due to competitive advantages the company has in place. For one, the broad Sirius XM Radio two-month free trial subscription initiated this summer is already very popular with dealers. [View news story]
    siri is a tough call, but i am staying with the shares i have. not a huge part of my portfolio of solid blue chippers like xom, mo, ko, pm, etc. siri has a shot at going higher as long as they continue to be innovative in there marketing and services. best of luck to all siri shareholders.

  • New car sales in the U.K. rose 13.4% Y/Y in June to keep up the region's out-performance compared to the rest of Europe. Ford (F) topped the list of best-sellers in the U.K. with demand for the Fiesta and Focus strong. [View news story]
    ford is a totally different company today then it was before the financial crisis. ford is the sentimental favorite with many car buyers who admire the fact that ford didn't take a bail-out, but rather took the risk of re-inventing itself. ford is headed higher in my humble opinion and i will be adding more F to my portfolio.

    VZ is a solid long term play and I continue to buy shares on a regular basis. I also own T because there is room for both to be profitable.

  • Bank of America's (BAC) Article 77 hearing on whether its $8.5B MBS settlement will be upheld resumes today after a near one-month hiatus. The big news during the break was BofA's refusal of the judge's suggestion it engage in mediation talks with the Objectors (among them AIG). The Objectors were happy sit down, suggesting they're just looking to get a few more dollars, but BofA clearly likes where the case is headed. [View news story]
    the financial media love to beat this company up whenever it can. all the big banks were part of the financial disaster, but BAC is always in the news with negative comments by all the "experts". i think BAC will surprise a lot of people in the near future with higher stock prices and a return to competitive dividends for its shareholders. be patient with this one.

    It's time to take some profits from your stock portfolio. The market has made great gains so I am selling off some of my positions in T, MO, PM, and PFE. I intend to buy them back a little at a time in the near future. I want to lock in some very good recent gains. Also I sold half my position in HNZ. You can't beat the gain it's made since the Buffet deal. I will also be buying back HNZ in the future, but again, it's time to lock in some gains. If you have made some good gains lately, don't be afraid to take some profits now. If you like your stocks like I do, then you can buy them back with "the houses" money you made on your gains. Just make sure you buy them back a little at a time to let the dollar cost averaging work for you. Good Luck! MSD

    I am holding my position on SIRI. I bought it years ago at 8 bucks after SIRI and XM got together. Not my greatest move to say the least, but my position was a very small part of my overall portfolio of some great BC stocks.

    I then bought an equal amount of shares to my first purchase at .80 cents a share. At $3 bucks now I did improve my overall position.

    In the long run I hope to at least break even with this stock, maybe even make a few bucks if they get their act together; which I think they will. Good Luck! MSD
