  • 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.

  • WSJ: Apple car project is for real, and it's a minivan [View news story]
    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.

  • Sirius XM: Get Ready For The $4 Crowd [View article]
    Pandora ? No way. Where do you get that ridiculous idea S.R. ?
    I'm still an interested participant in SIRI, just not long. The ROI just isn't where it should be.

    I'm also a SIRI client, lifetime subscriber.

  • Sirius XM: Get Ready For The $4 Crowd [View article]
    I put in a $3.75 limit on Friday and sold out. I will never go long on SIRI again as I had the past 5+ years. In the future my strategy with SIRI is to buy on the dips, sell when there's profit to be made. SIRI is nothing more than a marionette controlled by Liberty Media. Until they decide what they're going to do with it, the stock price will bounce around almost aimlessly even though they show excellent revenue and subscriber increases. I appreciate the nice profit I made, but it was also nice to get rid of the frustration.

  • Sirius XM Earnings Analysis: By The Numbers [View article]
    I said BYE BYE on Friday. After holding 5000 shares since 2010 I had to unload it. With John Malone and his posse controlling this company and it's finances hostage for his benefit, it was time to say goodbye to the frustration. I'll still watch it and maybe take a different viewpoint. Instead of being "Long" I think I'll buy on the dips and sell on the upside.

  • Sirius XM Earnings Preview: Steady Subscriber Additions And Bottom Line Growth To Continue [View article]
    Your point is understood, however there are many more folks who are very happy subscribing to Sirius than perhaps in your technologically inspired world.
    You have to be objective rather than limited to what YOU PREFER.
    It's not "all about you", right ? Maybe you don't care for McDonalds hamburgers but there are millions who do. Understand ?
    And what the heck ? Oil Jobs ?
    I live in the city and Sirius is always on Hair Nation or NFL Radio.
    This phone data BS has been kicked around for quite some time and it hasn't affected subscribers yet, proof is in the pudding sir. Just plain give it up.

  • Sell Apple And Put Up Your Defenses [View article]
    I like to be informed from both viewpoints, bull and bear. There's absolutely nothing you can post to make me sell off prior to the next stockholders report in late January, I believe it is reported as Jan 26th. Apple sales were very strong 4th qtr and then the Apple Watch will be introduced 1st qtr of 2015 from what I understand. ApplePay is taking off and expected to be a huge success. I don't see any merit nor do I comprehend your logic. The sky is not falling, but you're welcome to go hide in your bomb shelter while us pigs fatten up. Sorry for being blunt.

  • Canadian heavy oil drops below US$40 as output surges [View news story]
    There are rumor about big oil trimming employees already, and the smaller producers and exploration companies are in a fight for their lives.

    There are other benefits though. cost of transportation, manufacturing, some materials like plastics, and more - they all go down. Hopefully competition helps pass some of that down to us. I see way more good than bad for the USA.

  • Apple: A Pullback To Strongly Consider [View article]
    How could "High Oil Prices" have anything to do with Apple stock prices ?
    I would like that explanation in detail.

    This rapid reduction in crude prices has more positive effects than negative on the US economy. But then again, I realize we live in a Global economy.
    Yes some countries are gasping with crude dropping so low, but again I will go back to your comment. Why is low oil negative to Apple ?
