    I mean really....Macy's sales rose for the quarter 7%, but for the entire past year the stock is up a little over 4%? What is wrong with the stock market?

    We have some very good earnings reports every day and Americans just don't care about austerity happening. In fact we don't want it for anyone. Tell the wealthy Europeans to pay their taxes and stop the tax havens in Switzerland and Liechtenstein and that will solve some of their problems.
    Macy's stock is so undervalued. So many companies with great earnings are undervalued that there is no reasonable explanation. If these stocks with low P/Es go down any further, you will see investors become very angry at the continued rigging of the market with programmed trading on the headlines.

  • Where Are Footwear Stocks Headed Through The End Of April? [View article]
    I have been wondering if I should buy more shoe stocks. Now CNBC wants to talk about Italy. I would rather hear about the companies than political elections. When are we ever going to get our stock market back?
    Good article by the way. I do own SHOO. No debt and consistent revenue growth. I would like to own many of the stores and NKE.

    You must be a state-licensed banking entity to make a mortgage loan to consumers. You can sell that loan to investors, but investors cannot make mortgage loans directly to consumers.

  • Apple Is Not Worth $460 [View article]
    I agree with you in that many people did not expect IBM to recover in 1992 after record losses. However Apple is not losing money. They are making more money than many other companies all added up together. A company does not have to make more revenue to make more profit. This is a fact that escapes the novice investor. And even experienced investors and traders fail to recognize that during losing quarters and even losing years, is the time to buy the stock. Of course you have to have confidence in the very people who are running the company. Look at what IBM was doing during the years of losses.

    IBM became the world leader in patents. It almost completely took over the personal computer industry in business in one year. The losses are primarily from the severe cutbacks, pre-retirement costs, and restructuring, due to the recession going on in Europe and Japan. IBM goes global, implements for-fee professional services, and develops a business partner network for marketing. IBM figures out how to make more profit with fewer people actually working at IBM. The accounting losses did not reflect on the true potential of shareholders' investment in IBM. And that potential remains under-valued to this day.
    Apple is no where close to the situation IBM found itself in in 1992. It is still making literally tons of money with a product line that is only beginning to be popular. What lessons they may learn from IBM are to not squander their cash or their business ideas by listening to those that might profit in the short-term, or impede their plans, and that cannibalizing of their own product line is much less of a concern than letting others do it to them.
    You can make comparisons of Microsoft, Dell, and HP to IBM that might be more accurate. However these companies are more segment focused and the question is can they become more diversified and at the same time become more profitable. Or do we simply accept that some companies need to exist anyway.

    I just don't see the value in the Euro myself. Europeans spend more money than we in the US do on food, clothes, and petrol. And they pay higher taxes. Hope they make a higher income to make up for it.

  • Coach Vs. Kors: Who Will Win The Handbag Wars? [View article]
    Fortunately for me I sold out of all those stocks a long time ago. LTD around November. I would be interested in buying LTD back. The problem for LTD is the special dividends are not reflected in the annual dividend yield that is on all the websites. It would be better if they just raised the dividend yield. I think ANF's P/E is too high for me to be interested. I'm not sure what is wrong with DECK.

  • When Will Gold Prices Turn? [View article]
    You are only suppose to have a small percent in gold, like 5%. I believe too many hedgefunds and sovereign wealth funds owned gold and now are selling it.

  • Coach Vs. Kors: Who Will Win The Handbag Wars? [View article]
    I don't believe that. Most of my Coach purses are leather. Where did you read that?
    The thing is that someone is buying Coach stock every day at these low prices. They are probably smarter than all the ones throwing their stock away on the cheap.
    Just because Michael Kors is priced high, doesn't mean you should buy it. Consider that Wall Street firms needed the Ipo to be a success and now they need the secondary from Kors to be a success. This means that they pump it.
    The stores bought a lot of the merchandise on the hype. The question is how did they do trying to sell it? And will they do it again?

    It's amazing to me that the Euro has stayed so high.

    Car companies make cars in every country to get tax incentives and to cut costs on transportation. Tire companies, furniture companies, etc do that too. These are global companies. Nissan builds the Altima about 30 miles from my house in Tennessee.

    PZZA Papa Johns should also do well. Revenue is growing a little faster than Dominos. Both are good stocks to buy when they sell off. Then sell them when they pop on earnings. Or buy them when they drop on misses.

    Sorry you are on a budget. Check out the 2 lb bags of frozen vegetables Value brand on the bottom shelf. I've tried the green beans and they are good.

    Their prices are kind of high for mediocre food. There are so many places to eat.
