  • "Here's a novel way to drive up a company’s share price," writes the NYT's Jeff Sommer. "Pay billions of dollars in additional taxes." Forensic accountant Robert Olstein reckons that companies such as Apple (AAPL), Microsoft (MSFT) and Cisco (CSCO) should repatriate the tens of billions dollars they hold abroad, pay tax on it, and then use the rest of the cash to repurchase stock. That would boost their share prices by at least 20%. [View news story]
    It would be almost criminal for a corporation not to take advantage of whatever tax advantages (or loopholes as you and Mr. Obama like to beat into everyone's head) it can to benefit shareholders.

  • Facebook (FB +1.4%) is now experimenting with allowing companies to place ads in a user's news feed even if (unlike with Sponsored Stories) a user or his/her "friends" haven't shown an interest in the company's products. Such a move could dramatically increase Facebook's ad inventory. The company has been scrambling to come up with new ad formats as pressure grows to bolster slumping growth.

    I agree. If this makes you delete your account, you probably weren't an active user anyway. I think Facebook needs to get a clearer picture of who is actually active users. I'm afraid it's not going to be good news short term but I think they could then concentrate where they need to. I really think these mobile active users is more Facebook just sending you an update that someone commented on a photo and that person seeing the notification and just clearing the notification and not actually going to fb.

  • AT&T (T) has reportedly been instructing store managers to discourage customers from buying iPhones (AAPL), and instead steer them towards Android and Windows Phone devices. The iPhone's higher subsidies, and AT&T's efforts to reduce subsidy expenses, could be the reason. Verizon has also been trying to lower iPhone sales, reportedly in order to migrate users to its 4G network. AT&T's iPhone sales fell 14% Q/Q in Q2 to 3.7M.  [View news story]
    I have moved from apple to android and lost absolutely nothing. It's a SIMPLE device. It works well (which is a big deal). That's it. You can do more for less on android phones. That's what having competition in the products you buy does for you. I will say apple TV is a cool idea. Bought it 6 months ago, used it three times in the first month, not once since. Nothing gained, $100 lost. Yea buy the new iPhone. And then be forced to buy all new accessories for it because they want to change the port they use that for some reason can't be anywhere close to the majority of ports used in other devices around the world. And you mentioned finger Jesture's. Yea apple was first, and what do you know, have some competition and it becomes better. Android when you double tap it automatically resizes the paragraphs so you can blow it up as big as you want and still fit the paragraph in the screen without scrolling left to right. Nothing lost. Only gains. I'm happy for you that you will finally have real navigation only 6 years late and the option for 4g only two years late. And I'm glad you finally have the option of a bigger screen, only 2 years late. Have fun buying the iPhone next year 2013 when they only add a megapixel to the camera. Yay!

    You sound like followers of communists governments. Don't you see how great this is, without realizing that you have to wait on them for everything when you could just have it in the US and have it work on all platforms.

    But a real question, what do you do when your computer dies and you have to begin iTunes all over again. Even if you have every song, movie, app, etc saved on a backup hard drive. Is there any way to duplicate iTunes from one computer to another without losing all the organization that took FOREVER to complete?
    Or is this just another way apple forces you to buy everything from them to keep it organized?

  • Facebook Model Update: Lowering Price Target; Remain 'Equal Weight' [View article]
    I believe keep the same amount of % holding in your portfolio. I only say this comparing to underweight and overweight statements I have heard in other situations. Someone please respond if I am wrong.

  • Update On Natural Gas Trade Positioning [View article]
    So is that a hint to start backing away from UNG or am I misreading this?

    I have only been following it for a few months now but it seems to be moving pretty much hand in hand with nat gas prices, so it seems to me to still be a good play from what your saying if you are willing to hold.
