  • Stocks ease higher on light volume [View news story]
    Interesting! The market is often described as "slumping" in dropping 1%, but only
    "edg[ing] modestly higher in a quiet session" when rising 1% --

  • Orders for new railway tank cars plunge amid declining oil output [View news story]
    It seems logical for people ordering railroad cars to wait to order until the new regulations are established, the system is tested, and the car producers and the purchasers have confidence that they have cars that will work well and shield them from liability claims.

  • Breaking The PR Mold For Apple Watch [View article]
    With Apple's understandable concern about avoiding leaked information, producing commercials in-house seems a smart step. They have hired enough people with high-end product experience to have a good foundation for their own department.

  • Magna International: Significantly Undervalued With Strong Growth [View article]
    Thanks for the good article. I'm very happy investing in MGA with its bright prospects in supplying many automobile manufacturers as people fix up aging vehicles or buy new ones.

  • Bank of Mom and Dad Expected to Fund Nearly Half of Upsizers and First-Time Buyers: BMO Report [View article]
    I appreciate this intriguing information and am interested to learn how much new home buyers and upsizers are depending on parents to help them pay for their new or upgraded residences. How much is known about parents' ability and willingness to finance such projects?

  • Apple: LinX Acquisition Addresses A Hardware Risk [View article]
    "the market already is discounting this news as they probably believe that Chinese handset makers can easily catch up to AAPL."

    A guess turned by magic into a probability.

  • Cowen sees tough year for railroad stocks [View news story]
    This near-gibberish from Cowan & Company doesn't bother distinguishing between segments of "the railroad industry" or assessing reasons for optimism for rail car producers and companies that will be extraordinarily busy (with huge backlogs) in upgrading tank cars to meet what seem certain to be much stricter standards.

  • Breaking The PR Mold For Apple Watch [View article]
    I like your article and agree that Apple is playing a highly targeted, long game in the process of making tech more appreciated and widely admired and sought-after. It was not so long ago that numerous commenters were grumbling about how Apple was no longer producing the "wow" products. I suspect that there are many more substantial projects underway that will continue Apple's working effectively to reach high-end customers without turning its back on mainstream clients.

  • Berkshire mobile homes unit accused of predatory tactics [View news story]

    Thanks for posting the Clayton statement. Fair conclusions can be drawn after specific allegations are made, contested, investigated, and both sides have been heard. We've had recent jumping to conclusions in journalism with a prime example being the now-retracted Rolling Stone Magazine article about date rape at the University of Virginia. Let's let the inquiry proceed and hope that all the facts come out.

  • NYT mobile news app reportedly going free [View news story]

    Because the NYT is widely considered the best-written newspaper in the world, I'll guess that your comment indicates that you disagree with the NYT's editorial positions or cannot forgive the paper's not having a comics section.
