  • 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 ?

  • New Car Sales Should Help Sirius Meet Subscriber Guidance [View article]
    Yup, I just sold a large portion of my SIRI position over the past couple weeks but with Fridays dip, I just had to buy back in. It sheds 12 cents over some news about refunds ??

    I guarantee you it will be a short, unless it should head north of $3.65 for some reason.

  • Sirius XM: Thoughts On Manipulation [View article]
    Nice piece SF. It gives me a clearer understanding of the convertible notes. You know I've been one of the frustrated investors that has used that word, "Manipulated", and I've used it more than once.

    I'm still trying to understand Liberty and what their plans for SIRI really are. Is it Malones piggy bank for some future acquisitions he's eye balling?
    Is it a long term piece of Liberty which would lead me to believe they propose a stock swap again ? Will they keep it or spin it off ? Who knows.
    I'll be watching closely next week to see which direction the stock price goes, if at all. I'm long with my remaining shares, at least through July 2015. With lower fuel prices it may boost new vehicle purchases.
    Happy Holidays from the great white north. Go Pack !

  • Why I Think Sirius XM Is Still A Good Bet [View article]
    You're right on the money. I'm not going to disclose how much SIRI stock I owned at one time but it was substantial. I bailed on 70% of it, and yes I made some nice money on it, even after it dropped off last fall 2013.
    My remaining shares, I put on a Folgers coffee can and buried it in the backyard so I don't get tempted to sell that too. I too believe that down the road somewhere SIRI will flourish. Problem I have is there's no roadmap. The positives keep coming at us almost every quarter but we don't see the same in the stock price. OK, so it goes up a penny here and there. And there's no dividend. What else can I say. I played the game for 4 years and it's time to invest elsewhere. I have a retirement to look forward to.

  • Royalty lawsuit against Sirius XM Radio moves forward [View news story]
    Apparently the law offices of Dewey, Screwum, and Howe have time on their hands after the Asbestos, Pelvic Mesh, Metal Hip Replacement, and a bevy of Prescriptive drug class action lawsuits have run dry. CN, this is a blatant money grab. If Flo and Eddie were sooooo concerned with this tell me why it's taken 40+ years to file this action ? Because they don't have the income they once had ???? Apparently even the Native American casino's don't want to book Flo and Eddie anymore.

  • Why I Think Sirius XM Is Still A Good Bet [View article]
    I'm the last person on earth to doubt your math. You're right. The stock should soar over the next 3 - 5years with low expenses. I've been hearing the same story for the past couple years give or take. I do think siri will move in a positive direction or even blow up some day with some takeover bid, but the question is WHEN ? My point is 100% about having my money work as efficiently "right now", with minimal risk. The indexes are growing at a pace that left siri behind. If it weren't for the recent gains, the stock had been stagnant for several months. But I am a happy customer. Hair Nation Rocks !

  • Why I Think Sirius XM Is Still A Good Bet [View article]
    It's not a good bet. Maybe as an options call but not as a traditional long stock investment. We all know that SIRI is the premium satellite talk/music provider. We all know that Liberty Media holds the strings. I don't have enough fingers and toes to count the number of times I've read articles just like this one with all the positive financials except for 1, the stock price ! I sold 70% of my SIRI to gain cash for investing elsewhere and it's working. I'm holding on with my remaining shares hoping for that miracle takeover through some mega deal. I've made some very nice gains since originally purchasing SIRI in 2010 and added on several occasions. Thank you SIRI and John Malone for bailing them out, but I just don't see this stock steamrolling into 2015 while other sectors of the market are making nice gains.

  • Sirius XM: Retail Holders Now Own Less Than 15% [View article]
    $7/share ? In this lifetime or another ? It will become part of Liberty well before that happens.

  • Sirius XM: Retail Holders Now Own Less Than 15% [View article]
    Stephen, I had to bail on a significant portion of my SIRI. I needed the cash to go out and reinvest which has turned out very nicely, LUV and BMY. With the manner in which the markets have soared recently, I think I made a very good decision.
    I did keep 5K shares and I'll just sit on it.
    Regardless, I was tired of them manipulating this company to accommodate Mr Malone and friends. I'm hoping you're right this time and it turns into a win / win for me and everyone else that have been long. Patiently Long !

  • The Reasons Behind Sirius's Lower Stock Price In 2014 [View article]
    That's not true in every case. In regards to SIRI stock repurchases, it all depends on the source of that stock. It's fact they repurchased $500 million from Liberty. Did that help us ? I doubt it.

  • The Reasons Behind Sirius's Lower Stock Price In 2014 [View article]
    Spot On David !!

    Malone is for Malone. He and his staff know all the tricks. He could care less about his SIRI stockholders. All he wants is control and at the lowest acquisition cost possible. That's why this stock has languished the past 14 months. To accommodate his buyback plans.

    SIRI will be his piggy bank to acquire other cable or entertainment networks.
