  • Apple: This Is Ridiculous [View article]
    Why does that matter? Google has always been an advertising company. They even said as much. They push their hardware and other products to sell ads.

    Not very difficult to understand really.

  • Apple: This Is Ridiculous [View article]
    And since when has that mattered concerning the actual stock? Investors are obviously looking at future products. People have been saying the same thing about Amazon for years now and you would have been unwise to short Amazon.

    Maybe now is a good time; but it seems like a huge risk when there are other "safer" options available to short.

  • Apple: This Is Ridiculous [View article]
    How is Google a one trick pony? Google has basically the same products as Apple.

    Phones/Nexus line
    Music & TV/Google play

    Future plays that need to play out before I would even think about shorting GOOG:

    Google Fiber (This is changing the industry)
    Automated cars

    Betting against Google wouldn't be my first choice as they don't seem to be done from a R&D perspective and investors will likely give them a pass for several more years unless something flops big time.

  • Howard Stern Will Leave Sirius, And It's Great News [View article]
    I went to Sirius for Howard; and the show as of the past couple years is not good. I have moved to mostly listening to Jay Thomas and random music stations.

    Honestly it seems the people who hated him haven't listened to the show in years because the show is not just boobs and fart jokes; but instead it's basically the AGT Wrap Up show with the same tired jokes he's been using for years.

    When Howard leaves, it will be a realization that he isn't the center of the universe; while he was a large part of the success of Sirius; he is no longer the pull he once was and Sirius should know that.

    I haven't met a person under 30 who still finds Stern relevant; there is no such thing as "shock jocks" anymore; young people are on the web looking at the most bizarre and raw content ever made.

  • Altria: Accumulate This Cash Cow And Enjoy A 5.5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    I'm in it for the marijuana prospects and the piece of miller to be honest. I have grown to drink better beer in leisure; but when I go to any tailgate or large event with beer; id estimate about 70% are drinking a miller product.

  • These 3 Retailers Won't Make It To 2020 [View article]
    All the younger guys I work around seem to loathe the place. Our main execution workforce is between 20 and 30. Seems most have moved to Steam or even Origin.

  • Apple: Please Quit Your Whining [View article]
    Your argument here is ridiculous. Apple bought NeXT to create OSX if you really want to be honest; also the whole things based on Unix. SIRI is another acquisition; just like most large companies.

    I really don't care for Apple as an investment; but at least be honest. Most large companies don't 100% create anything and usually acquire companies to integrate into their own brand.

  • Hilton Worldwide files for $1.25B IPO [View news story]
    As a business traveler, I think Hiltons changes over the past 5 or 6 years have been great. I'm gonna bite on this one.

    As of maybe 5 years ago, I have moved from Marriot to Hilton and the ability to get nice hotels for business travel and cheaper ones for personal trips like their Hampton brand has been spectacular. Not to mention my business trip points usually cover my vacations. Couldn't do that with Marriot as the price points were a tad too high.

  • McDonald's to offer steak for breakfast [View news story]
    I don't eat at McD's too much but you gotta offer breakfast all day. That would get at least a few of my dollars each year.

  • No "slam dunk" tying Assad to chemical attack [View news story]
    How are we bumbling If the evidence doesn't support that Assads regime did it? Redline wasn't cross if we can't prove he did it.

    Concern? Yes. But honestly there's nothing to DO to Iran; we've done all non military actions we could do. They aren't going to stop developing their nuclear program. Period; and why should they?

    Put yourself in their shoes; it's pretty obvious why they want nuclear technology and crystal clear why they will not stop.

  • No "slam dunk" tying Assad to chemical attack [View news story]
    So we are mad that after the evidence and report we decided that we don't have enough to warrant an attack? Sounds like the correct way to do things if you ask me.
