    No sci-fi..this technology is what we purchase with every share of GLW, IMO, the leader in the race at this point:

    That's funny. Made more humorous when I read the date the article was written.

  • Taylor Devices - Not A Bargain, Yet [View article]
    Having purchased several thousand shrs @ $2.25 and selling for $11.10 on it's way to nearly $12, I can assure you there's money in this gem. Having a grip on wooden residential seismic dampers in So. Cal. is the frosting on the cake. IMHO, buy and hold. Good Luck To All. johnny

  • Production Slowdown At Taylor Devices Is A Blessing In Disguise [View article]
    I've owned TAYD for many years. In at $2+/ We made an embarrassingly large amount following three large earthquakes and ensuing tsunamis, however we are here to make money. I did give a chunk to Indonesian Relief. The thousands of shares I bought from Doug and company was (is) based primarily on their wonderful quarterly reports and the fact they have a toe hold on the wooden frame residential seismic dampers market in California. We buy on the dips and keep them on the shelf.

  • Acco Brands: This $6 Stock Bargain Is A Top Pick For A January Effect Rally [View article]
    In a related matter, we're taking advantage of today's 6% drop in ODP and stocking up. Mergers like this take quite a while to get aligned before the average investor can see a good return, IMHO. Those who buy in today at $4.95 will be happy providing they understand the dynamics and have the patience to see it come together. Thanks, Hawk, love the info on ACCO! Good luck to all! J.

    Great article, R.S. TWTR down nearly $4 from yesterday with a long fall ahead, IMO. "I won't get fooled again.."

  • Office Depot and OfficeMax complete merger, see greater cost synergies [View news story]
    Seems positive. My question is when will ODP and it's price be reflected in out "Streaming Quotes?" As of this morning, we have a blank space where the share amount and price should be.
    Not having been involved in a merger before, is there a specific period of time before our former OMX shares are tracked in "My Positions?"

    Many Thanks,

  • There's Still Life Left In OfficeMax - Its Business Is Scalable [View article]
    What's up with the 9+% jump today? I was quite pleased with the $1.20 up tick. Can't locate the reason. New CEO perhaps? Maybe good financial news?

  • Office Depot And Office Max: The Story Going Forward [View article]
    Thank you for a fine article on a stock we've had a vested interest in (OMX) for several months. It would appear this merger just might serve up what I was looking OMX @ $12.93 this morning and ODP around $13.15 ($4.89x2.69).

    Anything can happen, however your article and the input from fellow posters when they provide it, beats any other source for information this old bird can find. It will be interesting to see it develop. As Fusion suggests, I'm in a holding pattern. So very good. Good Luck To All!

  • Budgeting for Retirement: Overlooked, Critical Step Toward Making Your Numbers Work [View article]
    Staying debt free in retirement has provided us the opportunity to establish an "emergency fund" which we've been adding to for several years. This on S.S. and dividends only. I fell and knocked out most of my teeth..minor on the list of possible health related problems, but non the less, quite an expense we will be able to pay cash for. Rotating two vehicles ('01 Grand Cherokee- 90k miles and Nissan '92 pick up- 47k miles) has both running well. A year or two using the truck will keep the Jeep available, and in good running order, for trips. We love to travel. Nothing new.. however, if people would adhere to just the basic tenets of living within their means you can enjoy a good retirement with peace of mind.

    Certainly wiser people than myself such as our author, Clay, and posters provide new information that's very helpful. I see advertising on TV with unattainable and unrealistic amounts being touted as mandatory for retirement, just shake my head, laugh and switch over to the Western Channel.

    IMO, Bush #1's "New World Order" is indeed materializing before our very eyes. A small number of very wealthy people are getting rid of the Middle Class and only those who plan a realistic retirement will be able to do just that..retire. Otherwise one could find themselves working til they exit stage left. Good Luck To All...j.

  • New Lumia Ad: Outrageous But Brilliant At The Same Time [View article]
    Rarely do you see the medium used so effectively. The spot reflects the product's capability to a "T" and leaves the door open for additional possibilities. "Spot On." :O)

    If a great spot runs in Zurich and isn't aired it still effective? Of course! Thanks to our author and posters, this old ad man has replayed that numerous times for the sheer simplicity it takes to be convincing.

    Not to imply in any way the creative process was simple! Not hardly. To be that impressive took some long hours! Thanks..Johnny/San Antonio P.S. Derek..that video you offered up was just majestic!
