  • Why Gilead Is A Better Buy Than This Rival [View article]
    I became an investor in '98 and I've owned Celgene since then. Like Gilead, Celgene is a great biotech and it's been a huge winner for me. I remember several years ago, Wall St was unhappy with a quarterly report. The stock got slammed. I was one of those who sold many shares. But not long after, it recovered, was on the rise, and I was a buyer again. I learned that when I own a good company, I shouldn't overreact to a single earnings report. Frankly, today's report wasn't all that bad. A lot of investors are bailing today. That's good for me because I'm buying more shares.

  • Can We Really Trust Facebook Now? [View article]
    Facebook is one of those companies I invest in, but would never use its product. I take privacy on the internet seriously, but I know much of the public don't understand privacy issues or just don't care about them. Facebook's ability to make $$ requires it to "manipulate" its users. This is hardly the first time they've done this and it certainly won't be the last.

  • Apple pares early gains as SocGen cuts shares to Hold [View news story]
    I own both AAPL and TSLA. I consider Tesla essentially a start-up and as much as I believe in electric cars long-term, I worry about Tesla. The stock has risen really fast and Musk, who I think is brilliant, can be a loose cannon. I'd like to think Musk could be the next Henry Ford, but I can't help being anxious about him. I've owned AAPL for years. It's been very profitable for me and the dividend is great. I see no reason to bail on it now.

    This is one of those days when I'm reminded just how bad Wall St analysis is.

  • Apple's Earnings Projections Continue To Irritate Wall Street [View article]
    I'm long on Apple and I don't blame them for low-ball forecasts. It's just part of the "game". They know it they miss their own forecast, the stock will get slammed. So why not low-ball it?
