    APPLE, with billions set aside to buy_back_stock, was looking pretty smart late Friday when the very_large_volume made it look like they were competing with some sharp funds to buy in the $482--494 range.
    Wish I were that smart, but that'll benefits all of us. ~ Woof

    A. Has Apple said anything about whether they will or may issue a special pay-out?

    B. If they made such a distribution, and one had standing orders to buy at 540 and sell at 590, do those strike prices get ADJUSTED automatically, or do they (get triggered or fail to trigger) if the stock falls by the amount of the payout?

  • Use Apple's Cash To Your Advantage [View article]
    Don't know whether Apple may already include it's own stock in their "marketable securities" (does GAAP allow that?) - but we shouldn't be surprised if they are or will soon re-purchase a lot of their own shares, and/or pay a large extra dividend by 12/31/2012.
    If they do, how would that affect the suggested strategy?

    I sent this query to Amazon: "Is it really possible you publish with author not identified? Re: "The 5 Fundamentals of Building a Retirement Portfolio by The Financial Lexicon"
    Lexicon's don't write books. Who is the author, please?

  • Insiders Continue To Buy This 9.2% Yielding Energy Stock [View article]
    Questions from an elderly newcomer so innocent he once asked whether pipelines are run full of oil or only part full. Answer: "Think"

    Storm "Issac" has caused evacuation of at least some crew members from oil platforms in the Gulf of Mexico.

    Q.1 Is some oil lifted during such periods from either:
    a. a skeleton crew left on the rig?, or
    b. automated pumping in the absence of human crew?

    Q.2 What is the best SOURCE of information soon after the storm for the financial effect on individual companies, from temporary or longer loss of production, and/or from a need to re-build?

    Q.3 If one expects the VALUE OF OIL IN THE GROUND in the America's to increase (as I do), and as an individual investor wishes for the best net long-term, after-tax return-on-investment (ROI):

    a. what FORM of ownership (e.g. common stock or (__?__)
    b. in what TYPE of fund or type company (e.g. integrated, or ?)
    c. of WHICH you, my guide, would recommend ? companies?
    e.g. _______________
    _______________ and maybe
    _______________ Thank you! ~ Ted

  • Two directors are betting with their own money that Chesapeake (CHK) is on the rebound. Merrill Miller Jr. bought $498K of stock last week, and newly appointed Brad Martin purchased $355K, the first time two insiders have bought CHK during the same week since last August.  [View news story]
    Is July 23 the expected report of quarterly results or does it relate to a potential sale of part or all interest in CHK's extensive reserve assets?

    STATE Taxes for QRE owners? No reply from anyone yet to Chancer's concern, shared by me: July 4, 1:20 Eastern he wrote:

    "As an MLP, isn't it true that you can be required to file state income tax returns in all those states other than your state of residence?"
    " 'Texas, New Mexico, Arkansas, Louisiana, southwestern Kansas, Oklahoma, Florida, and Alabama.' "

    "I don't mind the K-1's as much as the potential state tax hassles."
