  • Isis Pharmaceuticals: Another Regeneron (Or Even Better) In The Making? [View article]
    Let's hope the R&D doesn't fail for ISIS since this a pure play on the success of new drugs that other drug companies pay for and sell, I wonder what real returns ISIS is getting?

  • General Electric's Future Dividend Growth [View article]
    To me it is not good business to be granting stock instead of cash to any employees in the many businesses of the world. It is like 'here we don't have to pay the employees, we can just print up stock shares, it will cut the value of all the other owners (investors') of shares, but what do we care, we got ours and we can give ourselves more. Liberal schools teach liberal business management so we can be as poor as most of the world is today. The bad bosses need to go and did you ever see a Democrat as a friend of business and not a socialist in sheep clothing. I may be wrong here, but on the other hand, some of the deeply religious Republicans
    could care less unless it controlled by the ?

  • Why 3D Systems Stock Remains A Great Short To $20 [View article]
    I have seen estimates of revenue growth for DDD ranging from 21% to 27% from a number of brokers to Barron's. The shorts lost a lot money while
    DDD was reaching for the stars last year, and the shorts lose if when the stock price goes up. Who do you believe? But with a gross margin of over 57%, I think I stay a bull a while longer, at least for this stock.

  • 3D Systems Acknowledges Total Lack Of Visibility [View article]
    Going from a growth rate of over 57% to only 27% is truly disappointing. It is so sad when compared to the percent growth with relation to the fact 3D Systems was a smaller company before the many acquisitions the company has made over the past several years to stay ahead of the competition. This is just like the business strategic of SSYS, a main business rival. I am long and betting that with the estimated over a dollar earning and an increased growth, ROE, and net income, DDD's price is in the ballpark and will grow.
    Other than ads for some companies, can anyone name 3D companies making money with the latest 3D or 4D technologies?

  • 3D Systems: Pride Comes Before The Fall [View article]
    DDD has a 21% revenue growth this year
    plus income, what does Carbon3D have?
    This seems like an article to promote the
    newcomer, whereas 3D Systems has been
    around awhile and expand through acquisitions
    of new technology and developments.

  • 3D Systems: Weighing The Bankruptcy Risk [View article]
    After reading your article again, you appear to a 'short' looking for fast money. But I could be wrong. Your opinions are not and do not match the estimates of many professional analyzers who are in the business world. True, they could be wrong too. Its all who to believe? 3DS has earnings where some of their competition does not. A far-out thought might be if 3DS were cheap enough APPLE could buy them.

  • Intel Joins The Indoor Location Chip Revolution [View article]
    People do need to know where some people or young children are all the time. Though for many people having someone knowing where you all the time are can take the fun out of say, surprises or secrets that you may want to keep. Who is in charge of responsible for supervising the users of these chips. 1984 and the thought police?

  • JPMorgan's fund performance numbers are hard to recreate [View news story]
    Numbers are just numbers like statistics can say anything. Long term results especially with dividends can be said to bring the best returns, but what do I know? JPM increased their cap. requirement over last year.

  • 3D Systems: It's Now Or Never [View article]
    This is a stock that is teething its' baby teeth I expect some growing pains as well, but look at the company getting its act together, hopefully soon. That why the company has hired some experience executives to pull this company together. At least, I believe so. As always the proof is in the results. Don't 3D Systems earning come out this on Thursday?

  • 3D Systems: Weighing The Bankruptcy Risk [View article]
    My opinion is based on professional estimates by a companies that expect 3D Systems is going to have positive earning of ( I lowed balled this) over 50% increase in each of the next few years. Write offs don't cause bankruptcies do they? But then they do raise the question have they paid too much for the companies brought. In a prior comment, I pointed out that it takes time for acquired companies and their products or tech processes to be successfully merged into the acquiring company. And of course, the estimates are only estimates. So why don't you (you) do some research and let me know what estimates you come up with. Thank you.

  • Philip Morris: An Update Regarding 2015 [View article]
    Every time I read an article like article, usually I sell the mentioned stock and for some unknown reason(s) the stock price increases. Philip Morris only has to increase its' products prices. That's like if the minimum wage is raised, then it seems the prices of everything else goes up, but that's life.
    With, I liked this, due diligence, the 5% dividend is only if the price of PM is $80 or less. The Author does warn us to do our homework on stocks and the markets.

  • 3D Systems: Goodwill Writedowns Are Coming [View article]
    Didn't DICK TRACY'S 'Wrist Watch Radio' set a lot of APPLE's present ideas and products up? Instead of 'talking to the hand', now it will be 'talk to the wrist!'
    Of course we have STAR TREK and its replicatiors with 'food' as well as the ability to produce anything within reason that someone might want or need. Give me science over superstition any day. These are stocks of the near future, if not now, much like APPLE was some years ago along with a number of failed computer stocks that bit the dust. We do have MICROSOFT, HEWETT PACKER, CISCO, and INTEL along with all the foreign competition forcing APPLE to stay sharp and keep moving. The 3D companies, or even 4D? companies are still growing their baby teeth.

  • ModernGraham Quarterly Valuation Of Paychex Inc. [View article]
    A lot of good numbers in this article. But the estimated growth is only estimated, but what I really like is no debt. and on top of that PAYX pays a dividend that has also grown over the years from 3+% to over 5% now. I surprised that they haven't grown faster but slow and steady is alright since PAYX besides being an accounting company is also an insurance company. Pass or Fail is maybe a little too tight of a way to judge PAYX. Take into account, this company has had worse numbers for a period of time and stilled paid dividends. I suspect that anti-business groups or even competitors like to shoot down PAYCHEX. I do own shares and I'll give them a PASS.
    Just a wild thought here, PAYX might grow by acquiring another company. You never know?

  • 3D Systems: Goodwill Writedowns Are Coming [View article]
    Goodwill is included in the price for these companies that is beyond the value of real assets, property, cash, etc. How is this balanced against the intangible values of cutting edge processes for new products or services especially developed 'in house' by the R&D divisions of the aquired companies? Won't all this just that time to wash out?
