  • iPhone Surging, iPad Collapsing - Apple May Be Near Its Peak [View article]
    Isn't this guy broke yet? How many people has he hurt with his misguided crusade against Apple?

    Hope you took that long position. Tim Cook and Carl Icahn just crushed all shorts. ;-)

  • Did GT Advanced Technologies Mislead Investors? [View article]
    You have a strange definition of "personal responsibility." When someone misleads you -- as GTAT management appears to have misled investors -- the one who has misled you is at fault, not you. In that case, you just did the best you could with the information which was available.

    CEOs of public companies are responsible to their shareholders, and are obligated to tell them the truth. To write off their statements as "hoopla and hype," if that is what you're doing when you refer to the statements they made represented by bloggers here, that is really disingenuous at best. At worst, it shows an utter lack of understanding of the responsibility management has to the shareholders, and egregiously shifts the blame onto the victims.

  • Apple's Best Interests Re: GT Advanced Technologies [View article]
    I think this solution makes too much sense for Apple. They're not exactly known for doing the smartest thing without some arm twisting (a la Carl Icahn), or the reality of overwhelming customer demand (e.g., larger screens).

  • Why I Bought Amazon.com After It Dropped 10% [View article]
    I hold $AMZN, but I plan to dump at the first bounce. This time could be different, as they are projecting half to 3/4 of a BILLION dollar loss next Q. What??? Bezos has p*ssed off a lot of invenstors. So this could have been a bad time to buy, imho. Barring any small bounces, you might have caught a falling knife. In any case, it's going to be a while before AMZN regains enough investor confidence to start rising meaningfully again. Bezos needs to get over his "conquer the world" fixation and start showing some profit - any profit!

  • Quantifying iPhone 6's Potential Cannibalization Of iPad, It Is Not Pretty [View article]
    Why do you think Apple is teaming up with IBM? To get iPad into the enterprise, perhaps?

    Article is useless.

  • Algorithm Predicts That Amazon Is Still Hot, Even If The Fire Phone Goes Up In Smoke [View article]
    5C is $99, 5S $199, but I don't think 6 will be avail. for $99. And definitely not $99 with free 2-day shipping at AMZN (if you shop there), and unlimited free photo storage. But I could be wrong, in which case I would concede that you have a point. But first let's see if iPhone 6 will be $99 subsidized. I don't think that's happening. ;-)

  • Algorithm Predicts That Amazon Is Still Hot, Even If The Fire Phone Goes Up In Smoke [View article]
    You're comparing the specs of a $99 phone with iPhone 6 and top of the line Android phones? That's a little bit ridiculous, as obviously the high-end phone users are not the target market for the Fire phone. For $99, the specs of the Fire phone are actually pretty awesome - especially the camera, which could even beat iPhone & Android regardless of price. Price to performance ratio is extremely high, and for entry-level users who also use Amazon or want Prime (which is a lot of people), the Fire phone will be MORE than adequate. The free cloud storage and other features like Firefly will also be attractive to these users.

    Not everyone cares about the latest and the greatest - most people just want something that works well at an affordable cost. Fire phone will definitely fit the bill for the majority of users in that bracket.

  • AT&T: What If You Bought At Market Highs? [View article]
    Just keep dollar cost averaging and plowing dividends back in. Hard to go wrong.

  • Himax Raised Its Dividend 8%, But Is It Worth A Spot In Your Portfolio? [View article]
    Well, that's a good point. I was able to scoop up more $HIMX at 4.2% yield levels. So I guess we do have bears to thank for that. :D

  • Amazon Did NOT Slay Apple, But It Will Gain Prime Members From Its New 3D Fire Phone [View article]
    Brilliant Bezos move. If you want Prime, you're really then getting the phone for just $99. That should then lead to continuing Prime membership as users get accustomed to buying more and more things on Amazon. Revenue already was through the roof, expect it to increase even more now. #Bullish

    This article is pure rubbish, founded on unverified rumor and not fact. Articles like this are one way people get dissuaded from investing in good companies. The author and SA really should be ashamed of themselves for publishing such shoddy "work."
