  • Yahoo May Become The Better Play On Search [View article]
    The more Google keeps screwing up their search with Panda and Penguin, the more Yahoo stock I will buy.

    And Google's current poor management of lead employees is a nice foot hold for Yahoo search.

  • Polaris Performs In All Weather Conditions [View article]
    This company gets the best free PR I have ever seen on TV.

    See them on Buying Alaska, Living Alaska, Gold Rush, Bering Sea Gold, Ax Men, Building Alaska and every other outdoor show there is.

    Great run company with great products. Stock will keep going up with all the baby boomers retiring in the great outdoors and needing ATVs and snowmobiles. And retired people buy new stuff to go with their new house.

  • Google: A Blue Chip Gem For 2015 [View article]
    "cannot understand why the share is not having a good year"

    I have some swampland I would like to sell you. Do you even read the news or just follow the analysts that daily pump Google stock?

    For starters the FaceBook killer Google+ is pretty much dead and the person in charge(Vic Gundotra) left. FaceBook is kicking Google's ass on ads since businesses using Adwords now pay more for false ad clicks and forced ad desktop/mobile bundling. Facebook has a better return on their ads for any business, since their ads are more focused on buyers interests with way less false clicks.

    And Google search content is getting worse by the day thanks to Google trying to "gin" up ad revenue by removing good or small page content without ads. The results of this leaves only the largest ad laden sites listing on the first page. Google now cares way more about growing ad revenue than good content which made the company. This is a slow motion train wreck which has caused MANY valued Google employees to jump off. The most important of these is head of their Panda Penguin development - Matt Cutts.

    Also, this year Google's driverless car fell well behind the Tesla model which is now leaps and bounds ahead of Google.

    And the Nest buy was a HUGE waste of money. Companies like Ecobee are eating Nest's lunch and stealing ALL their PR.

    I could go on and on...

    excellent upside?

    Maybe for near term desktop ad revenue, but not for new products, mobile ad revenue, or keeping their good employees there.

    I see NOTHING but issues with this dying search company that now has very poor leadership. Google is currently run like a think tank and not a growing business. Think tanks are great at wasting earned money and being control freaks, hence the no vote for shareholders.

    "The current settlement is a positive for Google"

    Maybe for their wallet, but NOT for their now on going public image problem.

    Hey, Google, what happened to "do no evil" ???

  • Verizon slumps on Citi downgrade; AT&T also off [View news story]
    Yes, they still are run like they have a monopoly but that could change if Google and Apple step it up!

    Verizon has by far the WORST service out there for FIOS TV. If you want to talk to a REAL person you have to cuss in the phone, and even than it is some under paid techie in India that knows nothing.

    Give it a try. Cuss your heart out... (888) 553-1555

    This company treats paying customers so bad!

  • Verizon slumps on Citi downgrade; AT&T also off [View news story]
    "network investment costs"

    Don't make us laugh!

    Their home on-site tech service is already gone and is all contracted with idiots. And they are now using the cheapest garbage plastic set-top boxes that Motorola makes. Can't get any worse. Oh, I forgot all the pop-up ads I now get on FIOS and the constant STB rebooting!

    I am waiting for the other shoe to drop and that will be when Apple comes out with Apple TV with more channels. That will be the end of this greedy and horrid company for my TV service!

    I would dump this third world run stock.

  • Verizon Communications declares $0.55 dividend [View news story]
    Their FIOs service has gone WAY downhill in the last few years. They need to start treating paying$$$ customers WAY better!

    I am waiting for Apple TV to come out with an upgrade with more channels, than I will bail on these greedy self-serving Verizon corporate clowns.

    1. ALL Verizon FIOs tech support is now ALL in India and they are total idiots that repeat themselves like parrots and don't fix any issues!
    2. If you need FIOs home service, than look in the mirror and wait for the box in the mail!
    3. Their new HD set-top boxes are now the cheapest plastic garbage with no clock, display or basic controls! Keep the older well built silver metal ones if you have them.
    4. Getting REAL sick of the increasing pop-up ads they are pushing at me!
    5. Their installers are now unprofessional contracted idiots that break things in my yard!

    I would run from Verizon stock.

    Google and Apple will make short work of them in the long run.

  • Verizon seeing margin pressure, higher disconnects [View news story]
    Maybe if @VZ had better customer service they would sell more and do better? Seems to be run by total outsourcing idiots now.

    I would never buy this company's stock after dealing with them. They treat their paying customers worse than cattle and you can't get home tech support at ALL now.
    If you want tech support from Verizon you get to talk to India, since they only use part-time install contractors here now. If you want home tech support for Verizon than go look in your mirror!
    They sent me a replacement set-top box that was plastic junk with no display/clock and it was used with fingerprints and snoot on it! I kept my old broken set-top box and am looking for a new provider with some morals and clean sealed equipment.

    Who treats paying customers like total scum. Answer: Verizon

    And reading that Google is totally rudderless under Page, makes FaceBook even a safer investment than I first thought.

  • IBM strikes $1.25B deal, expands alliance with ad giant WPP [View news story]
    It would be really nice if IBM used all that Watson development and went into the search engine business. Google's search engine results get worse each day and a search engine can really help with your ad revenue.

    IBM is wasting time on the cloud build out and should really develop Watson for a smarter search engine.

    The stock would fly if they did.

  • Google: Despite Headwinds, Model Illustrates Significant Upside [View article]
    You forgot the spoon or spoogle.

    Funny, they can make a crazy moving spoon but they STILL can't fix their search engine from listing crappy spammy and poor content sites on the first page. Gets WORSE everyday. WTF is going on there!

    P.S. Their search genius is most likely leaving since he is tired of dealing with Google's lies and B.S...
