  • Transocean Drilled First Quarter Earnings And Hit A Homerun [View article]
    Transocean may be in the S&P 500 but it's profits and taxes it pays goes to Switzerland. I will never own anything that is in Switzerland. And the stock went down over 4% today on earnings, so apparently there are more sellers.

  • Applied Materials: Factors That Will Drive Growth In 2014 [View article]
    AMAT is acquiring Tokyo Electron in an all stock transaction that is to occur this year and be accretive to earnings next year. This year the revenue growth is likely to be higher than 20%. The stock is active today on the Nasdaq, probably because they report next week. I think you will get a better price this summer than today but I'm not selling my tiny holdings nor am I recommending the stock.

    Once again, I'll ask when did you sell your IBM shares?

  • 10 Stocks Raising Dividends And Expectations [View article]
    Thanks! If you could find a list of stocks that did not reduce or eliminate their dividends during the recession, that would also be helpful. And of course a list who did reduce or eliminate them, would be good to know.

    People from Texas don't sign their name with Cheers. Clearly you are not the "enthusiastic" IBM retiree, now Watson author.

  • Should Pfizer Attempt To Acquire AstraZeneca? [View article]
    What pipeline do you like for AZN? Do you think oncology is going to replace the revenue they lose when their patents expire? As far as another article on this site, all of their revenue is going down in every drug category, except for oncology. Seems rather strange to me that you like GSK who is getting out of oncology per your reply to me above.

    You can invest in "culture" but I will invest in earnings and the return on that earnings. IBM is very shareholder friendly and that matters most to investors.

  • Should Pfizer Attempt To Acquire AstraZeneca? [View article]
    If PFE buys AZN, I'm selling on any pop. If it fails, and PFE drops in price, I'm adding to my shares. Meanwhile, I'm waiting. I do not like the idea of the merger as AZN is facing a patent cliff.

    Getting smaller doesn't mean the stock is going to go higher. Shedding business means a one-time gain in cash. I am not that interested in buying UK companies but thanks for the info.

  • AstraZeneca turns down Pfizer's increased bid of $106B [View news story]
    I hope this deal doesn't happen. AZN is facing a patent cliff with 4 drugs coming off of patent.

  • GM to return to bankruptcy court over ignition lawsuits [View news story]
    People will sue all the bankrupt companies if this happens. I doubt any court will find GM committed fraud anyway.

  • IBM's Culture Is Its Best Long-Term Investment Metric [View article]
    I seriously doubt the author of this article is the same person as the man who wrote the book. He claims to be an enthusiastic IBMer on Amazon and this article does not measure up to any IBM standard, much less one of enthusiasm. IBM would not be wasting their time reading a website who does not verify their authors.
    IBM has received many awards for their business practices and corporate leadership all over the world, and most employees in leading corporations expect to receive an appraisal of their performance. Even government agencies do this. No corporation is a democracy. You do not get to vote for each other, nor reward each other. If you cannot appropriately appraise your employees, you shouldn't be a manager.
