  • Facebook, Google, Twitter And Others Could Be Impacted If Advertising Bubble Bursts [View article]
    That's quite a stretch using several of generalities. Is that's the backbone of this article it is pure speculation.

  • Facebook, Google, Twitter And Others Could Be Impacted If Advertising Bubble Bursts [View article]
    Your whole article seems to be based on "...a rise in interest rates leads to lower ad spend..." yet I don't see any supporting arguments that these two things have any correlation. Can you expand?

  • U.S. crude production hits 43-year high [View news story]
    Not increasing production for a long enough timeframe is the same effect as decreasing it as demand moves up.

  • Buy Twitter Before Periscope, Video Really Take Off [View article]
    He's right about 1M downloads being nothing. Google won't even listen to a pitch about a product unless it is expected to reach at least 50M users. I bet 90% of those 1M downloads were people (like me) who downloaded it just to see what it is, used it once and never opened the app a second time.

    I believe Twitter has a very bright future but the stock is not unloved. It's very very over valued on a fundamental basis. Pure speculation at this point.

  • That Was Quick! Our First Premium Author Hits $200,000 In Annual Revenue [View article]
    Just a quick comment about the "Free" site.

    I irks me to read comments from publishers about how much we are getting for free. There is attitude that we should not be getting as much as we are or that you are doing us some sort of huge favor. That attitude will lose you readers.

    Everyone knows that the readers of the free content drive your advertising revenue (actually ALL of your revenue streams are driven by free readers). It certainly behooves you to keep the readers of your free content coming back.

    You are obviously making moves here to diversify your revenue streams (great choice) but don't lose site of that fact that ALL those revenue streams are ultimately driven by the readers of your free content. You need to keep that content worthwhile and keep improving that offering.

  • Why I'm Writing So Many Articles About Lumber Liquidators [View article]
    "What you are doing is actually called a waste of time. You should look up "fact" and "analysis" in the dictionary. I think you may be surprised as all of your articles are riddled with fiction, emotion and speculation."

  • GREK: Oversold, Great Upside Potential [View article]
    "Since both parties want Greece to stay in the EU, the scenario of a 'Grexit' is highly unlikely."

    What is the timing of this decision? IE when is the catalyst for your thesis likely to play out?

    "Because conventional power has to be used in during these periods "

  • Glu Mobile Insider Sales Should Be Ringing Alarms For Investors [View article]
    Greg Cannon sold early. I expect he has a ton of exposure to the stock - I probably would have taken a bit off the table too.

  • Dividend Aristocrats + Equal Weighting Has Beat Market For 14 Of 15 Years [View article]
    Chasing yield has been theme of the markets for the past eight years which has given a big boost to the dividend aristocrats. This can also been seen in the outperformance of REIT's and utilities. The question is how long will this go on? I am skeptical that this strategy will perform as well in the future, as it has in the past, given the current high valuations of the dividend aristocrats and the approaching rate increases coming in 2015.
