  • Can Apple Sustain Advancements In Future iPhone Generations? [View article]
    I believe that "new" is not the author's point, rather "superior", superior experience and user experience. Here's a recap of what Alex lists as "room to improve":

    batteries
    3D
    5K displays
    materials that comprise and protect
    sapphire display
    graphics
    processing
    modem
    memory technologies

  • Retirement Strategy: One Basic Flaw Of Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    I'm reminded of a comment Arnold Schwarzenegger made <or attributed to him> when he was Bush's czar of fitness, something like "20 minutes a day of exercise is all you need, any more is just ego."

    20 minutes seems boring, mundane, not risky - dividend investing ...

  • Is Chevron A 'Forever Hold'? [View article]
    @Larry, ... You just sound more and more like you are depositing some straw-man argument against a group of folks that aren't here present in this discussion. Don't demean your own article and logic by going down this trail.

    Clearly you yourself elude to limits on oil, hence at some point there will be a tipping point where other renewable/sustainable resources will be fundamental to our energy "sources". It's a fairly simple reality, I'm quite sure that Chevron will be a leader in good time in whatever that "source" is. In fact they are already diversifying (even more), as I recall the Indonesian natural gas project was delayed because the size of the new source was much larger than they anticipated - translation: Chevron had to go back to the drawing board w/r to production costs, etc.

    Again, your "flaming" greenies serves no purpose and IMHO damages your original argument. Give it a rest!

  • Is Chevron A 'Forever Hold'? [View article]
    Yes, it need not be either or, it very well needs to be both and - oil and renewable resources.

    As the author points out demand might surpass supply by 2015. But the author fails to cite any solution to this problem, dare I say renewables - both and.

    long CVX and having a charging station installed next week.

  • Retirement Strategy: Yes Folks, We Really Did Have A Correction, Honestly [View article]
    I started new positions in October 15-27th on JNJ, WMT, IBM, CVX, and MCD. IBM is still in the dumps trading real close to 52wk low. I had considered MSFT but I'm overweight on tech with 20% of my portfolio still on AAPL (average $67/share).

    Wow, with so many great minds thinking JNJ, I feel like I should have went in deeper.

  • The Case For Buying Apple [View article]
    @johnc77 ... Are you saying the "calls and splits and puts" are not converted to shares until you sale? I'm with rrose39, you have decent income now, what do you mean "does anyone have an idea how to create income?", you already are?!?

  • The Case For Buying Apple [View article]
    Yup, ... I was going to point that out, waited to see if someone else would, If I had not sold 150 at the peak, I would have 1000's in AAPL now ... oh well, the profit allowed me to start picking up dividend aristocrats on sale.

  • PC sales down modestly in Q3; Apple cracks top-5 [View news story]
    Yet this article only puts Apple's revenue share at 10% out of 5 the top 5 that's awful! Of course 10% isn't very accurate, I wonder why it's difficult to estimate better?

    Hmmm, well many of the watch features won't work without being paired to the phone. Hence, if need be Apple Pay will just be a feature paired with the phone, which will require an upgrade to at least a 5S.
