  • Helmerich & Payne- Might Be Time To Catch That Falling Knife  [View article]
    I'm on that knife's edge with HP at the moment. Jumped in at 67 recently and cringing here at 58/59.

    I keep telling myself it's not about today it's about years from now...

  • Recent Buy: The Walt Disney Co.  [View article]
    DM, it's the internet, you're just bound to end up with this stuff. Anyone who puts their thoughts and effort out there in public have to expect negative responses, justified and reasonable or not.

    I can completely relate, and appreciate, your work. My investments at this point are nearly exclusively from an IRA so my available funds are limited.

    To go along with what Tim was staying, I've always respected the comment "if you're the smartest person in the room, you're in the wrong room."

    Keep doing what makes your world go round DM. There are far more people here who are grateful for what you do than otherwise.

  • BlackBerry: Unfazed By Apple Pay Launch  [View article]
    Yeah, I would consider .5% to be within the margin of error when it comes to being phased or not.

    I work with hundreds of professionals in the IT world. I don't know of any who have a blackberry or who have even talked about getting one.

    At this point they are completely irrelevant in the mobile phone world. They might as well jump on the "this is the year linux takes over the business desktop" bandwagon with its square wheels.

  • Apple -2.8% as Bendgate, iOS 8.01 get more publicity  [View news story]
    The reason the bending issue came up isn't from people purposely playing circus strong man with it. It's from people who carried the phone in their pocket (as they had normally been doing) and noticed the phone had warped.

    The phone is remarkably thin. My first question just looking at them before this news came out was how fragile will they be?

    That said, let the people sell off their shares. If the price comes down even more I will be more than happy to take them.

  • iPhone 6 first weekend sales could disappoint, Bernstein analyst says  [View news story]
    He did say "could".

    It's Wall Street. There's an analyst somewhere with a contrarian view of everything.

  • Microsoft sends invites for Windows 9 event  [View news story]
    From the little I have read about Windows 9 the plan is to make it essentially the same o/s over the different platforms.

    The o/s will know whether it's on a full computer or tablet or phone and will set up appropriately for the device.

    I believe there was also a mention of ditching the number after the name so going forward it's just "Windows".

  • Boeing likely to win "space taxi" contract  [View news story]
    This really really really really really really needs to be a joint award.

    Handing this over to one entity would be a remarkably bad idea. Which is why I would count on this "avoid competition at all costs" administration doing just that.
