  • Will Multi-Platform BBM Help BlackBerry? [View article]
    Your sample seems very small and it may be too early to view this experience a significant finding.

  • Qualcomm beats estimates, but offers light EPS guidance [View news story]
    As a generally non-technical investor, my feeling is to watch the sell-off and buy below 77 if possible because I believe this company is too solid not to recover to the 80's. Unless you really need a tax loss now, I would hold off at least until the end of the year, following the action on the stock before you make a sell decision.

  • Intel's Compensation: A Wake-Up Call For Corporate America [View article]
    Anoher practice I would like to see reviewed is the tendency of top execs like Chambers to issue negative guidance on the next quarter --after the company releases a positive earnings statement -- which causes the stock to tank instead of rising as it should. It seems to me to be done so their stock options will be issued at a lower price. They are not concerned nor affected by the intermediate-term drop in the stock price as are investors, as they are necessarily long-term holders and their salaries and other income is not reduced. Chambers is not the only one who has done this. It is frequently done and it does not seem necessary to me as they are not infallible and should be working harder if they know conditions will be more challenging.

  • RIM (RIMM -2.3%) gives back a portion of yesterday's gains after Citi's Jim Suva reiterates a Sell and argues shares aren't properly discounting the threat posed by cheap Android phones, particularly to emerging markets sales. Moreover, Suva believes enterprises "will take at least 4-6 months" to test BB10, and is unimpressed with RIM's management software in light of competition from Good Technology, SAP, and others. The remarks come as RIM officially launches BlackBerry Enterprise Server 10, which supports iOS/Android device management to go with BB10. [View news story]
    I have watched RIMM drop from 17 (and higher) to the bottom where the pundits were forecasting gloom and doom, and little if any value, so I'm happy to see its' value increase to a respectable level. I'm also happy to see the shorts squeezed and hope they continue to lose. Corporations are composed of people and the new management faced the hostile market situation in a cool, confident, organized manner one would expect of hard-working executives. Failure does not seem to be an option for them and the shareholders who support them are being rewarded.

    I have been following RIMM since it was over 17, and watched it bottom out as the pundits were saying it was going to low single digits. I am happy to see the shorts squeezed and hope it turns out to really panic them as I am long and in positive territory. Corporations are composed of people and the current CEO and his people exemplify American management at its best. They are positive, organized and working hard to be successful. No way they can't succeed!

  • This Company Could Pay An Enormous Dividend [View article]
    judging from the comments made by, I presume, Cisco shareholders or at least those interested in the company, it seems that the company should share accumulated cash with shareholders who are financing it and who, as owners, are entitled to a share of it. Or, is the share price kept deliberately low to give Cisco executives lower striking prices on their stock options, which at retirement will result in truly Golden parachutes? Another possible scenario is to issue shares in the company's foreign subsidiaries to U.S. shareholders and let them repatriate their own money even tho they may be hit with U.S. taxes. Where there is a will, there is a way -- or a legal solution. Another possibility, issue stock dividends, even while buying back shares, as a way to share some of this superfluous cash tax-free.
