  • Apple Shareholder Meeting: 5 Possible Outcomes [View article]
    I hope apple does nothing or no 3.
    1. Paying dividends means taxes at the corporate and individual level of 50%.
    2. Buyback at such a high price, no need.
    3. They should use the cash to possibly get a major stake in a major network such as NBC or time warner so that they can get exclusive programming for the Apple TV coming soon. Maybe make some deals with the NBA and NFL for programming.

  • The U.S.A. Is Not The Roman Empire [View article]
    Agree with you. Rome had huge problems, especially the fact that the elections were held every year, the legislative served as the judiciary, and the lack of common undeniable laws which could be trampled over by new laws.

  • Why, At 28, I'm Going With Dividends [View article]
    I am an IRA investor, and having a good dividend portfolio is great. You can use the dividends to fuel purchases of other stocks which can be growth, speculative or more dividend stocks. Totally agree with you.

  • Rising Short Ratio Sometimes Means An Exploding Short Squeeze [View article]

    Maybe I am just a newbie when it comes to options, but if there could be a short squeeze on BAC why would you write $6 calls. Wouldn't you be better off buying calls to cash in when there is a short squeeze.

  • Health Stocks For Value-Oriented Investors [View article]
    Cigna is moving in to the Indian market. Considering that 85% of the population in India has no health insurance but discounting for the fact that 40% of the population lives below the poverty line, that still leaves a 45% growth potential for Cigna in the indian marketplace.

    Thanks Brian.

    PS. Whats the reason for changing your username and picture for a while?

  • 7 Names With Unusual Option Activity [View article]
    I think ford came in at 20 for reliability down from no. 10. That maybe a reason for the sell-off but who knows some hedge fund manager maybe tanking it like GMRC. Still a buy though.

    Intc was a buy before and reamins a buy. I bought some before earnings and got a nice reward.

  • Any idea when the Greek contagion will come to an end? [View instapost]
    Greek contagion will wnd when greece defaults. There debt is 162% of GDP and even though thats sustainable right now......Bloomberg reports that their economy has contracted more than expected and that the political process has faltered in privitizing the markets. So greece will default but look to Portugal as their interest rates have been rising and are now at 6%, much higher that the others (well other that greece), also look at the PIIGS to B i.e. Belgium; Its debt has been soaring.

  • After SPXU Has Its Day, We Will Switch To UPRO [View article]
    Europe is not broke yet, not saying it wont be in the future but on Oct 23 there will most likely be something positive, and earnings haven't been that bad, the financials have posted good earnings. If markets are to fall to the october low again then financials must lead and they arent right now.
