  • New Jersey eyes key sports betting court ruling [View news story]
    BYD owns half of the Borgata in Atlantic City. One of the few casinos doing well. I also don't see any reason why Sports betting should be the sole domain of Las Vegas. Bring it on NJ. Can't wait!

  • TJX: Super-Achieving Retailer Taking Big Risk [View article]
    Targeting teenage and 20 something women in TJ Maxx is nothing new. In many of the stores the Juniors department is what drives their business (highest percentage of store sales) As far as trends go, I suppose they are limited by what is available to them but younger adults generally do not have high incomes so I think it is less about the newest trend and more of how far their dollar can go.
    As far as a "treasure hunt" for men is concerned I have found the TJ Maxx stores local to me are organized and broken up into departments within departments which make it easy to shop. So I'm not sure where the dissatisfaction of shopping there comes from, other than the hit and miss of what you may find but that is what the concept is all about. Very bullish on this company and its top management.

  • In The Wake Of A Soft Quarter From TJX, I Still Like The Company's Dividend Growth [View article]
    While I see your point on the different opening times of the TJ Maxx and Home Goods store.
    The management team at the TJ Maxx you spoke about, doesnt have the authority to change their opening time. They can, based on customer comments, bubble it up to upper management to see if it made sense for their particular store. There may be reasons for the staggered opening times. You may want to ask the store manager.
    In Bergen County New Jersey, TJ Maxx stores cannot be open on sundays due to "blue laws". Not allowed to sell clothing on sundays.
    Great company..long, long, long on the stock!

  • BofA/Merrill sees "less valuation upside" for Zynga (ZNGA -4%) following a 47% YTD gain, and has cut shares to Neutral. Shares now reflect the long-term potential value of Zynga's core franchises, says analyst Justin Post, and "competitive real-money poker launches and summer seasonality on core businesses could limit further enthusiasm." BofA upgraded Zynga on Feb. 5, just ahead of a well-received Q4 report. [View news story]
    It would seem this analyst is not much of a gambler or poker player. How is it that he feels enthusiasm would be limited with real money poker?
    Seems to me that would rocket enthusiasm through the roof. Solid earnings should follow in 2013. Just my humble opinion
