  • Is IBM Suddenly Vulnerable To A Takeover?  [View article]
    At year-end 2012, there were 491,541 registered owners of IBM stock. Another 1,600,000 stockholders own IBM stock through brokerage firms, banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions. Again, I do not think anyone can get enough shares to do a buyout. Over 150 ETFs own IBM stock.

  • IBM: Red Flags In Free Cash Flows  [View article]
    "Revenue issues are well known, but the depth of their problems is being hidden by capitalizing their R&D" is misleading if not incorrect. Do you have anything that backs up your statement?
    Let's look at some requirements that are documented as to what is required by all financial reporting of companies. It doesn't appear to me that IBM is doing anything other than what is required by SFAS.
    http://bit.ly/1r1gq6A
    Prior to 1975, companies in the United States were allowed to capitalize R&D
    expenses. Accounting rule SFAS 2, which has governed the treatment of research and development expenses since 1975, requires that all R&D expenses be expensed in the period incurred. The only exception is for contract R&D done for unrelated entities.
    You can see the expense for Research and Development on every Income Statement from IBM quarterly.

  • Four 'Cures' On Their Way To Help The Oil Price  [View article]
    May not be illegal yet but it is highly immoral to run up people's bills when you have no intention of using the oil.

    This is what happens when the market is allowed to trade financial instruments beyond what is reasonable and then upon realizing that they are in a bubble they all sell out and crash. If you are not in the oil business, you have no business in this trade.

  • IBM fuses e-mail with analytics, social tools  [View news story]
    Microsoft and Google, Schick added, are "certainly not moving in a way where there's one-click access to people, topics, groups and information. One click to mute a thread and remove the clutter. One click to preview a document easily. One click to move a thread seamlessly into a social network. One click to see who you're meeting with or who's on a thread."

    Unlike Google, your emails and searches won't be sold to other parties and ads won't be placed on your device. This is important for those businesses who are concerned about privacy and security.

    From Reuters: "But unlike Google, IBM Verse will not sell the data it gathers about users to advertisers, a selling point critical for businesses concerned about privacy and security." This is probably another point against Facebook.

    SEC on CBS tops huge college football ratings week and has been the week's top draw for eight of 10 weeks this season.

    It is the first messaging system to feature ‘faceted search,’ which enables users to pinpoint and retrieve specific information they’re seeking across all the various types of content within their email.
    That's great for people like myself who can't find what they are looking for in their own email. And I won't have my email searched to display ads which take up my screen and slow down my laptop.
