  • Jobless Claims up 5K to 320K [View news story]
    Having no job is awful, but one can at least qualify for and receive government help.
    My friend was able to find a part-time job @ $8/hour, but she cannot even afford to pay for heat or to have her car fixed. She went to Social Services to apply for
    help,and they told her she MAKES TOO MUCH MONEY TO QUALIFY FOR AID. She is being evicted in the very near future. My point is the suffering and need are not confined to the unemployed standing in food stamp lines. Poverty is less black and white than "employed" vs "unemployed" or "Jobless claims up 5K." Poverty is multi-layered and defies simple categorization. Poverty as an economic and social problem which stubbornly and consistently defies cliches we devise to assuage our fleeting and sporadic visitations of conscience and outrage.

    seems somewhat superficial, but I guess Aapl could hire a flamboyant publicist.

  • Weak guidance trips up Polaris Industries [View news story]
    i feel like vomiting when i see this stock being pummeled even though it beat on both counts.It is my #2 stock. Last year was incredible. I hate the stock market and the way it jumps on any crumb of negativity when there is so much to be positive about. SCREAM!

  • Apple's China Mobile Sell-Off Creates An Attractive Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Re; "There seems... to be a constant coordinated attack from the media:" Why is that? How is Aapl threatening to the powers that be? A successful, forward thinking company illustrative of the merits of capitalism? I just don't get it. Somebody please explain.

  • Jeff Miller Positions For 2014: Another Solid Year For Stocks Ahead [View article]
    For the last 2 years I have had a 95% stocks/5% bonds allocation; I don't know if it was prescient or foolhardy. But it fits my comfort level, and it has paid off thus far. I may change it up at some point. I intend to keep a watchful eye on it. I enjoyed reading the article. Thanks, Jeff.

  • Altria: Accumulate This Cash Cow And Enjoy A 5.5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    Everyone has a right to his/her opinion on smoking. However, I don't think SA is the place to wage an anti-smoking campaign. Anti-smoking ads are everywhere - in fact, ubiquitous. I am well aware of the risks, and I may even agree, but the anti-smoking crusading here is patronizing. IMHO

  • EarthLink: Could Be Some Value, But For Now The Company Deserves To Be Cheap [View article]
    Yeah, so I bought shares in ELNK realizing that it was a gamble, and, sure enough, the stock tanked. So I am trying to find ANY light at the end of the tunnel or it's gonna be sell and take the loss this year.
