    You were so right on this one. CS lost 12% of their financial assets in 2012.

  • Regulators ease Basel leverage ratio requirements [View news story]
    CS lost 12% of their assets in 2012. They have exposure to trading losses. They have been pumping shorts on IBM and repeating their sell rating in desperation, and I think they are going to continue to miss their earnings estimates. It appears to me that CS misses their analysts earnings estimate most of the time. The price target is $34 at S&P and the price now is $33, so if I owned it, I would be selling CS now. The EPS estimate for 4Q is .50 but in 2012 they missed it by -55%. Last quarter EPS was .19, and I think this quarter will be similar. Earnings estimates are way too high for 2013 and 2014 for Credit Suisse.

  • Stop Worrying About IBM's Revenues [View article]
    No one is expecting revenue growth in 4Q. We are expecting low revenue growth in 2014.

    IBM was recently added to the MOAT ETF which also selects stocks based on valuation.

  • Automakers dazzle at CES, but what about privacy? [View news story]
    I think people are more concerned about finding a stolen vehicle, avoiding a traffic jam or accident, and getting help if an accident occurs or a child goes missing. All of these fears about privacy don't concern people who try to follow our laws.

  • OhioHealth and IBM Scientists Join Forces to Prevent Infections in Hospitals [View article]
    This is really important to me. My dear aunt died of an infection she caught in the hospital after a fall that broke her hip. An infection isn't a pleasant way to die and she certainly didn't deserve that. After I researched this, I found out that it is quite common for the elderly to die of infections they catch in the hospital and in nursing homes. We really need information on each hospital so we can make good healthcare decisions. They are suppose to report these deaths to the CDC, but I haven't found a way to look them up and do not know what they said about my aunt's death. And you cannot prove where the person caught the infection.

    Did you now that if the Watson business unit gets to $1B in revenue by 2018, it will be the fastest any business unit has gotten there?

    IBM is building a new headquarters for the business on the edge of New York City's East Village near New York University and other technology companies. 51 Astor Place in New York City's "Silicon Alley" technology hub.

    People need to start looking at Net Income. Revenue doesn't matter much; it's Net Income and how many shares outstanding that matter.

  • Stop Worrying About IBM's Revenues [View article]
    If you believe IBM's announcement 1 day later was a reaction to a newspaper article or that IBM can create a Business unit in reaction to the WSJ in 1 day, you are both fools. Everyone should write Finra and the SEC as to how hedge funds are trying to manipulate the stock price of IBM and many other stocks by writing articles for the media. Obviously they got wind in NY that IBM was opening a new office and likely no one thought it was confidential. So the bears after hearing it, quickly got ahead of IBM's news with their argument that Watson hasn't made much money so far and that IBM was "struggling". Everyone who participated in this "news" won't be getting any subscriptions or ad clicks from me. And I'm getting all the news articles saved to send in with my letter to Finra. It's better to teach these people a lesson then to deal with another crash of the economy.

  • Why GM Stock Will Not Motor Along Anymore [View article]
    Write investor services then. They probably need to do a little of both. If they pay a dividend, it keeps people from selling the stock on bad news and it keeps bears from piling on. I like dividends around 2% and stock buybacks for holding long-term.

  • 3 Must-Sell Dow Stocks For 2014 [View article]
    You will do better to short gold or oil or natural gas or bonds. And even better than that, just buy the stock market when it is down and then sell it when it is up. Shorting stocks is just a bad idea in an improving economy, especially with a strengthening dollar.

  • Why GM Stock Will Not Motor Along Anymore [View article]
    Normally I would agree with you, but buybacks have almost become a dirty word in the media as they refer to them as though they were manipulation of the earnings and the stock price. My GM stock is in an IRA so I'm not paying taxes on it anyway.

  • IBM to invest over $1B in Watson business unit [View news story]
    It's pretty suspicious that someone wrote those articles yesterday saying Watson didn't make much money right before all of these Watson announcements today. Most likely it was the bears initiating the articles yesterday. Don't let them influence your investment decisions. Hedge Funds only made 9% in 2013 for their clients. They have no business using your money to short stocks of good companies.
