  • Amazon Gets Upgraded, PT Raised To $480; Starts Price War Versus Apple And Samsung [View article]
    Most of the price quotes in this article for the Kindle Fire tablets don't match Amazon's current prices. When did they announce the cheaper pricing?

  • Now Not The Time To Buy Google Shares [View article]
    "Moreover, the uncertainty that surrounds many of Google's business ventures, and the sheer number of these projects, means that Google investors could be looking at $900 a share before too long."

    Well, it will be trading at or around $500.00 as of April 3rd. Though a stock split is basically superficial, and there's no change concerning the underlying facts for any bull or bear argument, buyers are usually seduced by the "cheaper" and more "affordable" price and push it higher.

  • Google May Be The Most Overrated Stock [View article]
    I'm in GOOG at 277, so if it drops alot I'm still holding.
    What I'd like to know is whatever happened with the 2-1 split, announced in April 2012. It was held up by shareholder lawsuits, which were settled at least four months ago. No news anywhere...these guys are more secretive than the NSA.

  • Google - Analysts See Shares Exploding [View article]
    What's the status of their 2-1 split, announced in April 2012...held up by shareholder lawsuits which have been settled? No news at all...these guys are more tight-lipped than the CIA.

  • Memo To Apple: Prepare For Weak Holiday Sales [View article]
    Alan1967 is right. The sweeping generalizations in the opening are just that...and very likely not even accurate. It's too early to tell how the season will go...and any link btw. Obamacare and Xmas sales is very tenuous. Also, with six fewer shopping days after Thanksgiving, I wouldn't be surprised to see news reports of huge crowds of frenzied shoppers, especially helping online sales.
    P.S. With 500 shares of AAPL @ 55, I'm not losing any sleep even if the AAPL bears are right :>)

  • Google - A Huge Dividend Coming [View article]
    What happened with that 2 for 1 split, announced in April 2012? It was held up by shareholder lawsuits, but that was settled several months ago.

  • Why Facebook Needs To Buy Snapchat Before Google Does [View article]
    I thought one of the most appealing features of Snapchat is the quickly disappearing photos. Don't they stay on WhatsApp until you delete them?

  • Is Amazon A $500 Stock? [View article]
    The true nuggets in this column are in the third and fourth paragraphs, referring to scale. Anyone who thinks WMT...TGT...you name it...are ever going to catch AMZN skipped class the day they taught the concept of "the horse is out the barn door" or "that ship has sailed."

    P.S. The six fewer shopping days after Thanksgiving this year than 2012 will drive harried shoppers online even more.

  • I Concede Defeat In Amazon.com [View article]
    I'm holding 500 AMZN which I bought @ 142.
    For the first time since 142 I'm thinking seriously about selling, even though it's going higher with the Xmas season coming.
    So why would I sell? Because when Paulo Santos throws in the towel, you know damn well that you've got your contrarian indicator.

  • Amazon.com Shipping Change Means The Earnings Miss Is Probably Massive [View article]
    The only opinion which really matters is the stock price. Traders and investors must like something, because AMZN hit a 52-week high earlier today, and is still up 6 points.

  • The Fairy Tale Of Amazon.com [View article]
    I traded around AMZN for many years, usually only during the holiday season. But then I just said the hell with it and have been holding 500 shares @ 142. If this is a fairy tale, I'll take it over reality any day :>)

    P.S. Memo to all who short: You're probably right, but of course the problem you have is the "when." As the old saying goes..."In the long run we'll all be dead."

  • Sell Google Before It Gets Buried By Competitors [View article]
    Not that I give a damn, since the cost on my 400 shares is $277.00 and I'm holding until the world ends...but anyone who believes that another company will ever catch GOOG on search (or AMZN on books, for that matter) must have skipped class the day they taught the concept of "the horse is out the barn door" or "that ship has sailed."

  • Apple: Reality Bites, So Time To Sell [View article]
    Most analysts who write these columns (whether about AAPL or _any_ hot stock) are either short or they missed the years-long rally entirely.

    If this cNet review is accurate, you're not missing much by not even buying it...
