  • Susquehanna downgrades Xoom; shares -1.8% [View news story]
    feels like Susquehanna drove price down to justify the $25 PayPal offer.
    definitely a relation here that needs to be investigated!

  • PayPal acquiring Xoom for $890M [View news story]
    What are the options for Xoom shareholders?
    Will there be option for Xoom shares to convert to PayPal shares similar to the eBay split?
    Xoom was well on it's way to be over $25 and a dominant leader in the instant money transfer especially from mobile device.

  • Monster Beverage called long-term value pick by UBS [View news story]
    I would think the longer you wait the higher the liability with all these new high sugar and high caffeine laws in the works. Plus someone will soon have enough research years to show the negative effects of energy drinks. That will be the lawsuit of the millennium coming in the near future.

  • Xoom! The Classic Tech Pitch: Lots Of Flash, Little Value [View article]
    WU = AOL
    Xoom = Facebook

    Western Union took to long to change into the New Millenia a la Blackberry, AOL and Nokia.
    WU image is still paperwork and having to go to shady locations.

    Xoom because of it's fresh New take on the business has an image of Pioneer in the phone app instant transfer/bill pay space.
    Image is everything these days, long gone are the days in which tenure in the business matters.

  • Xoom up 13.6% on Q1 beat, in-line 2015 guidance [View news story]
    I am gonna compare WesternUnion to AOL, had their time and didn't keep up with the changes in time. Xoom is the Facebook of today, these guys are the new technology.
    Its hard to reinvent an old brand with old ways, the US consumer thinks of WesternUnion/MoneyGram as paperwork at a terrible location.
    Xoom - no paperwork, at home, on your phone, instant transfer, instant bill pay

    How hard has it been for AOL to get rid of that dialup tone out of peoples mind? Tough road for WU, Xoom will be the leader in this space!

  • Yahoo: Why I'm Buying In (Finally) [View article]
    Yahoo is definitely on the up and up. Today I received a new instant travel notification for my flight. I had no idea how in the heck yahoo new I was flying on jetblue today as I am not a frequent traveler. But I now know it's because I had my yahoo mail app open and it must have caught the email I received from jetblue. Awesome Awesome Awesome. Yahoo is back on track and I believe Food and Travel are smart moves to invest their apps in. Tripadvisor, Kayak would be great additions in the Yahoo family.

  • Monster Beverage lower after whiff in Q3 [View news story]
    Energy buzz has played out, keep opening countries for what? Too late as most Countries have had energy drinks long time before Monster. No more is it an exciting product, now turning towards a scary Monster. Open a country hoping to increase sales, but all it does is increase operating costs. Decreasing price to try and keep showing a volume increase in the US - not a sustainable plan.
    Time to cut your losses short.
    RIP Monster
