    NSC has run up strong over the past year. I wouldn't buy at this level but would hold what I have.

  • Norfolk Southern: Riding The Rails To A More Profitable Tomorrow [View article]
    I'd be careful here. I think 1Q for the rails is going to be tough given all of the weather events that will increase there costs and operations. I'd wait for a pull-back

  • Jim Cramer Sells Linn Energy, So You Can Be Sure I Am Going To Buy [View article]
    Cramers a tool. First he's in LINE, then he's out. Then he's back in, now he's out again. Clearly a trader, NOT an investor.

    Long LINE since 2009!

  • Cramer Dumps Linn, Should You? [View article]
    Remeber, Cramer is a trader, not an investor. Been long LINE since 2010 and will continue to be long. Everytime I listened to Cramer I lost.

  • The iPad mini has gone on sale today, but without the long queues and frenzy that normally accompany the launch of a new Apple (AAPL) product. That's possibly because the specifications aren't as good as in the iPad, while the models on sale don't include the chips that support high-speed cellular Internet. Those are due in a couple of weeks. [View news story]
    I live in Norfolk, VA and just walked by the Apple Store in the local mall. At least 400 people in line.

  • Apple Longs: Are You Glad You Bought And Held? [View article]
    Being an investor, not a trader, I bought 500 shares of AAPL at $200/share in January 2010. Having more than doubled my investment in two years by just sitting and watching a strong company with no debt excel.
