  • Groupon Is In The Early Stages Of A Multi-Year Growth Phase [View article]
    Just a short time ago SA was strongly suggesting a sell on GRPN AND despite its cash position, was taken for one with no prospect.

    Now suddenly it is a compelling buy. Can SA be trusted? Some of us relying on the sell comments, sold the stock and now it has risen over a dollar and it is a buy!

    I think SA's comments should be solid.

  • Avoid The Hype: AMD's Decline Is Terminal [View article]
    Alex, you have done a lot of work on AMD and it seems you believe it will fold its hands and do nothing to keep on with innovations. I differ with you. AMD is still in the game.

  • Should General Electric Break Up? [View article]
    I think the parts of GE are worth more than the whole. It could spin off various divisions as separate companies each accountable for performance a la Phillip-Morris.
    This a world class company unlike a tech co.

    Keeping Grant and Contract revenues in one basket does not make sense due to grant being a moving target.

  • Advanced Micro Devices Has 40% Upside Potential In 2014 [View article]
    Have found conflicting opinions from SA on AMD. One day it's good, and then it's bad and good again? Has anyone found it the same?

  • Groupon Has An Unsustainable Business Model [View article]
    Although IPO time the # of shares was small, wasn't what you have said in the article known to anybody?
    I think a company without debt, $1b in cash and international expansion and self serve deals cannot be considered as one ' having chances to falter!". IMHO it is undervalued at current s/p. GRPN is a leader in its space.

  • Alibaba Is Already Bigger Than eBay And Amazon Combined [View article]
    Patric your argument that Alibaba can expect depositors to pull deposit on daily basis while funds have been loaned longer period begs the question,' can these big banks default on Alibaba?' Yes Alibaba can expect liquidity crunch but must have some recourse in place to safeguard its position. That we don't know! Are Alibaba and non bank entities capable of managing risk? That is a million $ question?

  • Which Weight Loss Drug Manufacturer Should You Buy? [View article]
    Great insight. With ARNA approve, a bird in hand, it is a better Buy than those waiting for an Ok. Now ARNA should start putting out NRs so that the public is up to date and the shorts run for cover. This has got to be a blockbuster even if sharing with VVUS.

  • Is Being Bearish About the U.S. Market Unpatriotic? [View article]
    I cannot understand what 'patriotism' has to do with the market. An investor or a trader just thinks one thing - $$$$. Patriots don't send you $$$$. Find good businesses and invest - you may not get GE at this price 2 years from now.

  • Last week, a former investigator of the S&L scandal told Bill Moyers Journal that CEOs of many of America's largest banks knowingly engaged in the fraud which has now brought the economy to the brink of catastrophe. Some say the government's failure so far to investigate any wrongdoing "is a much larger scandal that the bonuses being paid by AIG or anybody else."  [View news story]
    i agree with you. I don't think anyone in his/her right mind would have allowed the level of leveraging- but that's history. However history should also record who profited by this wheather they were inocent dumb people who did not understand the consequences of massive leverage and securitized 'worthless' bonds!
