  • Bank Of America Class B Warrants: Only For The Brave [View article]
    If you are lucky enough to exercise when they are in the money, the warrants pay off by cashless exercise, meaning when you exercise you get the value of the shares over the exercise price paid out in shares of BofA. No cash is required to exercise them.

  • Apple: Who Blinks First? [View article]
    It's times like this I'm glad I'm an investor and not a flighty trader in AAPL stock. Let the rubes panic and sell low and then buy back at a higher price later. I just sit back and tune out the noise and watch this stock double and double and double again over the years.

  • Apple: There Won't Be An iPhone 6s Bump [View article]
    Several iPhone users in my family and nobody has had an issue with the cables. Also, I am waiting for my contract to end to upgrade from 5s to 6s. The only people I know who want Android devices are tech nerds, Apple haters for some reason or low-income. Yes, this is anecdotal, but so is hating apple because you can't use their product with non-approved third party accessories. The risk-reward here for AAPL shareholders is extremely favorable. At the moment wall street hates this stock and that is fine with me, buybacks will be more potent. The time to buy is when the money managers who are like cliquish groups of teenage girls hate the stock. Cheers!

  • Apple Earnings: Not A Blow-Out, But Good Enough [View article]
    hko2012 - who knows what Cook thought about the idea of a bigger phone at the time? The point is that Steve Jobs was highly fallible and even flaky in some matters of judgment. He was arrogant in his disdain of public shareholders and may even have doomed himself by seeking treatment in alternative "medicine" for his liver disease. While he was a visionary in some regards, he made some giant mistakes as well.

  • Apple Earnings: Not A Blow-Out, But Good Enough [View article]
    I love Wall Street's irrational hatred of this stock. It gives us the ability to buy the best company in the world at a huge discount and virtually ensures that the share price increases will be dramatic in future years. Remember that AAPL is buying back more than 10% of its shares per year at ridiculously low prices and that tax reform with respect to overseas profits is now looking likely. Once that $200 billion and future overseas profits come home, get ready for the deluge of buybacks and dividends the likes of which have never been seen in human history.

    Enough with the Steve Jobs worship. He was the one who insisted nobody would want a larger smartphone "tweener" which he mocked on his call as "dead on arrival." Cook is far more shareholder friendly.

  • Yahoo: Aabaco Spin-Off Is A Highly Unattractive Investment [View article]
    Silly article. Of course the Aabaco shares will have no advantages to BABA. That's not the point - its to get the BABA shares out of Yahoo so Ms. Meyers can't sell them off to fund her ill advised acquisitions. It'll be a tracking stock with a small discount in price. Great!

  • Apple's Cash Dilemma [View article]
    Clearly AAPL is waiting out the next election to see what happens. With a less leftist or impractical president there is a good chance of some corporate tax reform or tax holiday. AAPL is doing the right thing by waiting this out and bringing some funds home by means of low interest debt. I would suggest that those commenters who think they have personally thought up a new way to achieve tax free buybacks are being naïve. AAPL can hire the most knowledgeable people in the world on these matters.

  • BofA and Goldman are more than rising rate stories [View news story]
    Nope. The actual breakout is at hand. Lawsuits and government extortion are over, interest rates rising from zero, finally all those free deposits will generate revenue. Halleluja!

  • Apple: Expect Another Small Dividend Raise [View article]
    Sorry, but increasing the dividend the same amount as the reduction in shares just keeps the total dividend payment the same. This company is printing money at an increasing rate that would make Wall Street blush. Yes, much is trapped overseas until a tax deal is made on repatriation but that is what the debt is for. This company can afford a decent dividend raise and a massive buy back. Show us the CASH MONEY!

  • Is Apple's Run Over? [View article]
    A big win for Microsoft? You've got to be kidding me. Rushing a half-baked half-assed product to market just means they will look foolish yet again. Their device is already getting terrible reviews. Apple takes its time to do it right and preserve their brand cache. Microsoft? Please, what were you thinking?

  • Daimler Closes Tesla Hedge, Dumps Shares, Grabs Cash, Runs [View article]
    Normally I wouldn't consider the folks in Stuttgart to be very financially savvy. Anyone remember DaimlerChrysler? But in this case I'm happy for the result no matter what the thinking behind it. Long DDAIF.

  • Retirement Strategy: Apple Could Conceivably Double Its Dividend By 2016 [View article]
    Sorry to bring politics into this, but the republicans are likely to gain seats soon and that man in the white house will be gone in two years regardless. Even if Clinton is elected there is likely to be tax reform on foreign corporate profits or at least a tax holiday that will enable them to bring the cash home on a one time basis. Then the cash will rain down on us poor long suffering shareholders! I never imagined I could be so happy to see Hillary Clinton in the white house! Just a sign of how far we have sunk.
