    Now that B OF A has increased it's dividend, it ironic that the annual payout will exceed the saving account rate at the moment. I do agree for those who have the time this will be a good long term investment.

  • Microsoft's Xbox One Is Failing [View article]
    D&C Hardware gross margin decreased $135 million or 34%, due to a $706 million or 70% increase in cost of revenue, offset in part by higher revenue. Xbox Platform cost of revenue increased $486 million, due mainly to higher volumes of consoles sold and higher costs associated with Xbox One. Surface cost of revenue was $539 million for the three months ended March 31, 2014, which increased due mainly to a higher number of units sold.
    Gross margin declined due to growth in console sales with the launch of Xbox One

    1} Just because a system is not doing as well as another system doesn't mean they should get rid of the division. What planet are you on?
    ANS. Earth NOTE: How many years has this division lost money.

    most information that is hacked is already on the web you just need to know where to look for it. Even Woodrow Wilson could find things on the net if he had the opportunity.

    I very much appreciate you taking the time to work the numbers. I'm sorry I did not see you aug 1, 4:07 post until just now. I do believe that
    Bank of America made a lot of bad decisions with countrywide and Merrill.
    It is now as the say try to remember not to make the same mistake twice and look to the future. I always believe the glass is half full and with hard work we can try to improve the world.
    Again thank you for your assistance.

  • My 2 Concerns About General Electric's Synchrony Spin-Off [View article]
    TAKE FIVE

    I rarely buy foreign securities. Too many times I 've seen security profits cut when foreign exchange rates go south. I like ABB for it industrial goods but I don't think it will do as well as GE over the next five years. As for Eaton I think there vehicle power division will do well so of the two I would go with Eaton.

  • My 2 Concerns About General Electric's Synchrony Spin-Off [View article]
    After reading every comment
    three things come to mind
    1} half have no clue what the spinoff will do for GE shareholders.
    2} 2 in 3 do not understand what the SYF/GE trade off of shares are.
    3} Most do not understand that a lot of pieces of GE CAP will stay with GE.

    based on the comments above a lot of people have good money invested but have no clue where their investment is going nor the risks to GE as it increases the industrial side.

  • Microsoft ordered to release emails stored in data center abroad [View news story]

    I guess you forgot the 90's evidentiary laws for computers. The cloud was considered by the email rules. Many precedents referred to corporate control.

    Sorry it not part of the patriot act per se. The patriot act merely repeated what was passed under Clinton.

    You really should do more research.

  • Microsoft's Bing Is No Longer A Money Pit [View article]
    WIL3714

    From fiscal 2011 through fiscal 2013, this division proved to be a huge drain on Microsoft's profits:


    Fiscal Year 2011

    Revenue 2,607

    Operating Loss (2,657)

    Fiscal Year 2012

    Revenue 2,867

    Operating Loss ($1,925)*

    Fiscal Year 2013

    Revenue $3,201

    Operating Loss ($1,281)
    *Excluding $6.2 billion goodwill impairment charge. Source: 10-K

    PERHAPS you could calculate how much SB wasted of stockholders money

    Virginia long view

    1] We did not have weak bank regulation we had we regulators
    examples WA MU had dozens of complaints about them to FDIC & OCC
    2] For years the ability to pair off like trades was impeded by the CFTC
    and FED.
    3] thank DODD FRANK & the Democrats for creating such convoluted regulations that only the big banks can afford to try and be in compliance.

    Think about how many different regulators Bank of America has deal with.
    Probably 75+
    How many state bank regulators are related to that states political structure.

    I'm a democrat so I'm not taking a cheap shot, just giving proper perspective
