  • Apple: Finally A Buyable Dip [View article]
    Tech,

    You got to "trade the traders". If sentiment changes, then, well look at the chart.

    If the big money decides "the story" is old or over, long will be a tough position.

    Divs, buybacks, split -- what else can they throw at it? A bigger iPhone?

    Yes, a bigger screen is needed. Just try to nav any data intensive site with an iPhone5 or earlier.

    But, is the bigger screen already priced in? If it is, and the story is mainly smartphones, then what comes next to support the growth story?

  • It's Payday: These REITs Yield At Least 5% And Grow Dividends By At Least 5% [View article]
    Yes, but the market forces generated by zero or near zero interest rates for the people with money and good credit is tremendous.

    If rates spike purely as a policy decision, then who knows.

    For the health care and senior living REITs, the baby boomers are not going to go without a fight.

    Lastly, people don't live forever and the inter-generational wealth transfer is another big wave. The heirs could aggressively invest and spend.

    The action shows that AAPL "investors" can't be trusted and jump at any moment. :)

  • AT&T Is Undervalued [View article]
    These articles almost never address the debt or pension issues.

    VZ and T are almost legal monopolies though.

  • Fresh highs for Apple as payments reports dissected; eBay slips [View news story]
    To not need a card would be useful/helpful.

    For now though, a PayPal account, a PayPal debit card, and 2-factor is a good available combo.

    AAPL should just buy PayPal. :)

  • Annaly Capital: Time To Get A Bit Cautious [View article]
    Even though the "gurus" have written every year since 2009 that the easy money has been made, I don't think the market can run away from us at S&P 2000.

    So, I would wait for Yellen and the policy makers to make an abrupt change sometime in the next six months. If they don't, then they are likely trapped and we are possibly like Japan for the next 15 to 20 years and a 2.5% ten year could be the new normal.

  • Piketty's Envy Problem [View article]
    I think you mis-understand the problems and issues.

    These academics get PhDs for ah ha moments for concepts and ideas that most EVERYONE knows and understands. He can write 100's of pages (or even thousands) or just say, "it takes money to make money". Of course, it takes money to lose money also.

    Then these folks by virtue of a degree (see above) get important policy positions and start making and influencing wide ranging decisions.

    The inherited wealth is another problem and issue. Again, simply by virtue of wealth, many folks have positions of power, influence, and policy making.

    What if the PhDs and the inherited wealth are really just not very smart?

    A rising tide lifts all boats, but the crème is not rising to the top.

  • AT&T And Consolidated Edison A 'Tell' Of 2 Champions: Part 3 [View article]
    Yup -- someone needs to explain where the debt load came from, when it is due, and when/how it will be paid back.

    Often times, high-yield (relatively speaking) and high debt has not been a good combo especially for long term investors looking for safe n sane.

    The main take away from this article is that investors have been "pushed" from money markets to CDs, to bonds, and on to equities looking for yield.

  • Apple Set For Strong Sales Of iPhone 6 In Just A Few Weeks - But Is It Too Little, Too Late? [View article]
    For many, still just gains or losses on paper.
    Paying the div is no fun though if long term short. :)

    When the story is over, I predict more investors will have lost money than made money trading AAPL.

    Then SA is losing money. Who here has ever actually clicked through?
    Can anyone even name an SA advertiser?

  • Meet 'Lowflation': Deflation's Scary Pal [View article]
    I have asked this question every year a couple of times per year for the last 5 years. No one ever answers.

    Of course, if anyone had said, "all in", they would look like a genius today.

    You have $1 million to invest in equities by month end.
    What would you do?
    Then, let's see how it goes.
