  • Tesla Will Need To Restructure [View article]
    Tom, Peter objected to your saying subsidies, you wrote, "And it should be noted that all of Musk's three companies rely heavily on govt subsidy, if not sponsorship"

    A contract is neither a subsidy nor a sponsorship. So you have not supported your assertion that Musk has some grand sweeping strategy of "vacuuming up taxpayer funds."

    Unless of course you are going to indict every company that has a government contract http://bit.ly/1S8sZ2d

    Oh my top government contractors who are sucking up government funds, 2013, just to show an easily googled list of those who suck up taxpayer funds:
    Lockheed Martin Corporation
    The Boeing Company
    Raytheon Company
    General Dynamics Corporation
    Northrop Grumman Corporation
    SAIC Inc.
    Huntington Ingalls Industries
    L-3 Communications Holdings Inc.
    United Technologies Corporation
    BAE Systems PLC
    McKesson Corporation
    Bechtel Group Inc.
    Veritas Capital Fund
    Humana Inc.
    Computer Sciences Corporation
    Booz Allen Hamilton Holding Corporation
    URS Corporation
    Health Net Inc.
    Hewlett-Packard Company
    Textron Inc.

    Here's a 2015 list, Space Exploration isn't even on the top 100!

    Hence, not a real market correction at $120 rather a legal loophole to set a floor, eh? Of course, it only works because Apple has sufficient resources to buy back at a rate to stop a slide, and Apple is a real growth and revenue machine.

    Is it just a coincidence that the increase in stock price due to share buybacks is approximately equal to the annual % increase in share buybacks? (see green columns on shari buyback chart)

    Is it just a coincidence that the increase in stock price due to buybacks is basically the same as the % of shares bought back? (see share buyback chart green columns)

  • Scanning The SA Family For Alpha: Daskapital1000 [View article]
    It seems like part of the hybrid E is due to leftovers from transitioning to Income Investing, eh?

  • Scanning The SA Family For Alpha: Daskapital1000 [View article]
    Thanks Brian the same blessing to you! This year I start transitioning out of work, but I've always felt my real career is investing. My son just finished college and is networking his way into grad-school and his first full-time job here in San Francisco. I look forward to seeing him become an investor!

  • Scanning The SA Family For Alpha: Daskapital1000 [View article]
    Hi RS, I'm a 5 out of 5 "I", I will retire early after 25 straight years of investing, I'm a late starter compared to many on SA.

    However, I'm finishing a recent transition to Income as an investor, although I've always had a few Dividend Income stocks, I was very open to Growth stocks. I still hold SCTY, AAPL, TSLA, and BRK.B. In fact I started with BRK.B and VNQ (a REIT). Some of my DGI stocks were entered into for Growth reasons, for instance DIS and WFC, since the initial purchase my reason to hold has changed but I bought DIS several times on dips way back when Disney acquired the Lucas Films franchise for growth purposes not for income.

    Now at 55 I've divested of most of my other Growth stocks and I can retire early.

    I am not sure if your Growth list is average I've never held AMZN or FB nor would. I understand some of the commenters points about TSLA but the "no profit" of AMZN is IMHO not comparable to that of TSLA. Tesla is about heavy reinvestment, reinvestment in infrastructure (gigafactory and superchargers) and future battery science. It would appear that one may loathe the business practices of Tesla, but it seems like context of the balance sheet should matter.

  • Apple: May Has Come And Gone And No $140; Where We Stand [View article]
    Right on rebecca21! I use Apple Pay whenever it's presented and it can't be presented at a table in a restaurant unless each waiter has some handheld device, so unless, Cliff has one of those diners where customers pay at the register I would not as a customer ask for Apple Pay either!
