  • Incyte Q4 top line up 97%; net income up 250%; shares down 16% premarket on discontinuation of development of Jakafi in solid tumors  [View news story]
    Nothing works against pancreatic cancer! Why the high hopes (and now disappointment), that Jakafi would be different. Nevertheless, INCY is alive and well. Its recent trouncing totally overdone

  • Report: Morgan Stanley to pay $3.2B over mortgages  [View news story]
    We sure know who just lost that money, and it isn't MS! Why don't the States and White House hold those accountable who committed the crime?!

    NOK seems to do everything right, for once. The Alcatel acquisition was a perfect fit. Let's hope they are right and the merger execution continues smoothly on track.

  • Google robot finally gets a driver's license  [View news story]
    In case of a collision with a AI car, it would be your fault. Right?

    Unless you are a Dale Earnhardt or a webcam proved your innocence (what a chance!), any judge would likely consider the robot smarter or at least a better driver than you. And whose insurance would pay, if 2 robo cars collided? Fun times ahead!

  • Yahoo: A Strategic Pro-Growth Plan  [View article]
    As long as MM is presiding, YHOO is toast. Buying back its own shares is like prepaying funeral costs. Sell YHOO asap and waste no more of its dwindling resources.

  • Yahoo posts loss on $4B goodwill writedown  [View news story]
    Looks like the end of the line for YHOO. Yahoo! Ms. Mayer! There may not be enough money left to pay your fat bonus/severance package for running Y into the ground.

  • Bank Of America: Is The Bottom In?  [View article]
    "They are banned from activities that make money and regulation is killing them."
    Maybe they need to relearn how to make money "the old fashioned way and earn it", instead of cheating, stealing, and committing grand larceny. Most customers (and shareholders) would applaud, if banks became decent businesses again. Sad only, that it takes all these regulations to reign in at least the most grievous abuses, banks committed to cause "The Great Financial Crisis".

  • Blackstone: Despite The Risks, It Looks Considerably Cheap  [View article]
    "Bearish outlook towards real estate." Really?

    The exact opposite is true. Outside China (with its large RE overhang), demand for RE in US and many EU countries is huge with supply scarce. Just what BX is shooting for!

  • Apple: 'No Growth,' No Problem  [View article]
    Not sure Wall Street would agree with your analysis, even though theoretically it makes some sense. Unfortunately, it's WS where AAPL's share price is being determined, and those guys seem to be hung up on both top and bottom line growth with few exceptions.

  • Another Quarter, Another Win For Blackstone  [View article]
    Mr. Market also beat down BABA today, after it reported gang buster results in a tough Q. Go figure!

    Buy BX around 22, down about 50% from its 52wk high, and you'll be glad you did a year from now. Meanwhile, enjoy the distributions.

  • Markets force cancellation of Lloyds share sale  [View news story]
    Really? Don't bet on is, as long as UK economy and employment remain on shaky grounds and the question of GB staying in the EU is looming. If a Brexit should occur, the UK economy would take a hit.
