  • Apple To $140: Making Higher Highs And Higher Lows; Funds Desperately Want Back In [View article]
    Is that a "Prediction" ? If it doesn't we might see $135 - 136.
    My only concern right now is unrest in Europe (Greece) and more talk by analysts about the Feds raising rates.

  • Apple To $140: Making Higher Highs And Higher Lows; Funds Desperately Want Back In [View article]
    So what bluejay,
    At the current rate of increase (41%) since it split last June 2014 it would be valued around $915 based on pre split value of $645. That's an appreciable increase my friend. Wouldn't you agree ?
    People make predictions about various subjects day in and day out. I could care less about predictions. I want results. That's why I starting buying Apple stock several years ago.
    I find it quite satisfying to see these kind of gains in choppy markets.
    Are you complaining sir ? I'm not !!!!!

  • Buy Chevron Now Before It Takes Off [View article]
    I'm in the petroleum industry and my best advice to investors...........,
    I wouldn't touch an energy stock with a 10 ft pole. That includes XOM, COP, CVX, and the list goes on. The world petroleum markets are way too volatile.
    The current scenario with crude prices rising into the upper 50's / bbl is close to topping out. When crude hits $65, the US producers will be back in earnest drawing from shale crude and tar sands in Canada. We still have a glut of crude available regardless if we're talking above or below surface reserves. Yes there could be some upward movement of these companies, but take for instance XOM. It's in the upper 80's. Before all this started it was roughly $104. You will not see that in the foreseeable future and same goes for the others. Time to look in another direction for profits unless you're a day trader and enjoy gambling.

  • The Case That Apple Is Worth At Least $200 A Share [View article]
    I delivered his GB Press Gazette newspaper as a kid. Nice people, they always gave a tip when I was collecting and the holidays. Back in 1965 - 69 we had to collect the newspaper fee.

  • Apple: The Good Times Roll On [View article]
    I love these critics who keep pointing to a downward trend. I guess if you keep indicating a downward trend for 5 years, at some point it actually will trend down.
    It's kinda like telling everyone you won a $5000 jackpot at the casino. You just neglect to say you spent $6000 before you hit the big one.
    No offense to the author. I just disagree with your opinion. It's America and we have the right to an opinion one way or the other.

  • The Case That Apple Is Worth At Least $200 A Share [View article]
    $4/share increase in one day ?? Makes me smile ! I sold all my energy stock last November (400 / XOM) and wisely put it into AAPL along with my existing position. Unless crude oil shoots upwards by 10% or more in the next quarter, it will stay in AAPL. I'm very curious about the consumers perception of the Apple Watch. I'm obviously hoping it performs flawlessly. I'm not hearing much about ApplePay lately. I thought this would be a huge generator of revenue for AAPL.

  • Apple Expands Capital Return Program to $200 Billion [View article]
    I guess that all depends on which brokerage "book value" you want to believe, huh ?

  • Raymond James downgrades Apple; Watch ship times slip to May/June [View news story]
    Sounds like Mr McCourt had advised his clients to short AAPL and is trying to manipulate the share price down.

  • Follow Buffett's Lead And Divest From Exxon Mobil [View article]
    Let's get this "Warren Buffet" story right. Buffet sold XOM last November when the Saudis announced they would not cut production. I did too. Anyone that has been educated on energy investments would have done the same. I was selling in October and I sold my remaining 500 shares at something around $95 after the Saudi announcement. I knew the energy producer stocks would nosedive right along with the price of crude. I reinvested into airlines and trucking to accommodate some profits. LUV was a dandy !

    As XOM has dropped below $90, I'm slowly adding it back into my holdings. I picked up another 200 shares yesterday at $86. My avg price is $87.50.
    XOM is the leader in global energy companies encompassing all facets of upstream to downstream. As an investor it's my belief buying XOM now, will be beneficial at some point in time. It could be gut wrenching as we go through this period of unstable crude pricing but I'm bullish that XOM will come through in good shape. It might take a year to get back to $100 but like I said, I'm an investor, not a trader.

  • J.C. Penney: What To Do After Today's Massacre [View article]
    There's a difference between a "Trader" and an "Investor" Q. I'm an investor. I bought a small piece of JCP as I saw the price last year as a bargain / undervalued. It's my intent to hold long at least another year maybe longer. The new CEO has a major project in rebuilding JCP and he's off to a reasonably good start. We'll see who comes out ahead.

  • J.C. Penney: Starting To Get Overvalued Again [View article]
    What are you ? Some kind of financial terrorist ? Did you have a large short position that was in dire need ?
    OK, So they had a bad 4th quarter. JCP is rebuilding what the former CEO destroyed. Rome wasn't built in a day. JCP will survive and watching the stock price rise back up today confirms that.

  • WSJ: Apple car project is for real, and it's a minivan [View news story]
    That's not a far fetched idea. They started Apple Pay which means they've entered into the fringes of banking. Whose to say they couldn't start their own financial services and use a slick marketing campaign that offer Apple Pay clients a reward program for using Apple's services.

    I could understand AAPL getting into Connected Vehicle Services, but a car ???
    It doesn't make sense, at least to me.

  • Apple Numbers Get Serious [View article]
    I'm an INVESTOR, not a TRADER. AAPL is a big part of my personal portfolio and it will continue that way for the long term. I see Apple Pay being a huge gain and god only knows what they roll out next. The Apple watch is due next but I'm positive they are working on new and more innovative ideas to capture additional market share.
    I'm Long AAPL.

  • A Look At The Performance Of Sirius XM's Connected Vehicle Busines [View article]
    Consider the source CN. The uninformed buy stocks and then stand outside at night waiting for shooting stars so they can make a wish.
    SIRI would be fortunate to hit $4 by the end of this year. Just my opinion.
