  • For Airlines, Poor Customer Service May Be The Route To Profit [View article]
    I just hate the airline industry in general as an investment option and analysts never get stock movements right. I've been following LUV and they've been wrong the whole time.

  • Revisiting Zynga's $3.30 Valuation As Cash Accounts For 80% Of Stock Price [View article]
    The only thing "analysts" such as Trefis do is revise their price targets when prices go up and down. Anyone can do that. When is the last time you guys got a call right contrary to the trend?

  • How My Family And I Overcame Obstacles To Be Better Off Than 4 Years Ago [View article]
    Great article and an inspiration to some of us young beginners to budget, save, control expenses, plan for a rainy day and invest early. And also a good reminder for everyone that it's possible to live within their means with what little we make though it is a really hard thing in these times.

    Got a few questions and you would probably be in a good position to share your knowledge

    1. Now do you have a sizable amount invested in dividend stocks? The reason I am asking is because even if you put, say a couple of ten thousands in a 3% to 4% dividend stock, you're getting anywhere between a couple of hundreds to a close to $~1000 at best every quarter. Is this cash intended only for savings/investment and not for expenses
    2. Do you have all your dividends go back into DRIPs? If yes, how did you do it? Directly through your broker or through some middle man bank or something?

  • Shares of Antares Pharma (ATRS -9.1%) continue their slide today after its second-quarter loss widened and results missed analyst estimates on Wednesday. Net profit was hit by bottom line pressure from higher investment expenses related to the development of its Vibex MTX auto injector for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, along with an increase in support personnel. [View news story]

  • Drivers Of The U.S Airline Industry [View article]
    I got into southwest (LUV) long term really high at 9.37 and 9.70. Now I'm wondering if I should just hold or cut my losses. I'm a pretty new investor and bought it because LUV fundamentals were pretty good and they recently got permission to turn one of their main centers Houston hobby airport (HOU) into an international airport for international flights...but that will come to pass only in 2015. So don't know if buying LUV was the best choice with all the volatilty in the market due to fuel prices. Also,everyone I started talking to says the airline industry is one of the worst industries to invest long term..

  • Every iPhone 5 unit may look the same, but Apple (AAPL) is actually producing 3 different models, so as to address the 7 4G LTE frequency bands being used globally. AT&T will sell a North American GSM model, Verizon and Sprint will sell a CDMA model, and foreign carriers will sell an international GSM model. Selling different models should lower Apple's component costs a bit, and is a slight negative for top RF component supplier Skyworks (SWKS -1.4%). (more on iPhone 5[View news story]
    Not a big fan of any apple product and never understood why everyone was going gaga over something that I could always find functionality from a cheaper alternative. The only time I started liking everyone going gaga over iPhone and iPad and other Apple products was when I bought their stock and have around 30% of my portfolio in AAPL stock. Even today I was talking to a coworker who said that he is upgrading from 4s to 5 because "It's 4S dude!" and I couldn't help laughing with my friend who also owns AAPL stock telling him "man, I love people like you!!!"

  • Southwest Airlines (LUV +3.5%) raises its air fares on shorter flights, prompting a flurry of corresponding ticket price hikes by legacy carriers such as American Airlines (AAMRQ.PK), United Continental (LCC +5.4%), and US Airways (LCC +4.9%). Last week a hike by Delta (DAL +2.9%) didn't take hold across the sector, which is nothing new with low-cost carriers such as Southwest, JetBlue (JBLU +3.4%), Spirit (SAVE +1.5%), and Allegiant (ALGT +1.6%) typically acting as the trendsetters for the group. [View news story]
    Is this a good long term move or a bad one for LUV?
