  • Homebuilders on the rise after Pulte and Ryland results [View news story]
    Ryland is the cheapest stock and the one that is improving the most, so I don't know why it can't go back to its highs.

    Not sure anyone cares what Credit Suisse thinks. They are going bankrupt and selling off divisions as fast as they can.

  • Fuel costs down 17% for American Airlines in Q4 [View news story]
    The P/E is 9.5. The forward P/E is 5.3. 77% growth rate in EPS in 2015. I can't see any reason to sell AAL. Just pick your prices to buy. I'm hoping to buy more shares around $50. I may take some profits at $58 but I usually just hold after re-evaluating.

  • Corning beats by $0.07, beats on revenue [View news story]
    Good news for Corning. I'm holding my shares.

    (S&P Capital IQ) Print
    We raise our '15 operating EPS estimate by $0.06 to $1.59 and initiate '16's at $1.66. We increase our 12-month target to $26 from $22, on a P/E near peers and GLW's 10-year historical average. GLW posts Q4 operating EPS of $0.45 vs. $0.29, beating our $0.38 estimate. Sales rose 29%, better than we anticipated, on higher demand from Display Technologies. While we see seasonal Q1 softness in LCD glass volume, we expect improving end-demand thereafter on modest pricing declines. We remain optimistic about Optical Communications and Environmental Technologies growth prospects.

  • Pfizer Q4 net income off 52% [View news story]
    In October 2014, Pfizer announced that the Board of Directors authorized a new $11 billion share repurchase program, to be utilized over time. Including share repurchases to date, the current remaining share repurchase authorization is approximately $10.8 billion. In December 2014, Pfizer announced that the Board of Directors declared a 28-cent first-quarter 2015 dividend on the company's common stock, payable March 3, 2015, to shareholders of record at the close of business on February 6, 2015. This represents an increase of 8% in the quarterly dividend per share, compared to 26 cents per share in first-quarter 2014.
    PFE is up 13% for the past quarter while the SPY is up 5%. I think you should be in this stock for the long term even though it is not growing.
    Go read the announcement material for what is in the pipeline.

  • Report Says IBM Set To Cut 26% Of Workforce [View article]
    Many articles are written for no other reason than to make someone's trades work. There is a website where you can chat and get anyone to write your articles for you supporting your objectives. I went there to look and the technology writer was in Pakistan. If you look at the author's profile and can't figure out if he is a real person with a known background, then you should be suspicious.

  • The India Story Is Finally Taking Off [View article]
    IBM has been laying off in India last year and hiring in the USA. I think the idea that India is doing great is old information. They also have problems with their tax bureau making it difficult for companies to do business there. And take a look at their infrastructure which is pretty bad. I would buy IBM stock at this price before I bought anything in India.

  • IBM's Mainframe Refresh May Enhance Growth [View article]
    So how do you find headcount? The reason I ask is that blogger by the name of Robert X. Cringely constantly posts negative articles about employment.

  • Have IBM's Share Repurchases Created Value? [View article]
    What you have to decide is if Microsoft is worth over twice the price of IBM, based on P/E and mrkt cap, when IBM pays a higher dividend yield. IBM is the much cheaper stock. They are going to be at least in the top 3 of every growth category in 2015.

    Goodyear is a great company but the stock never seems to hold it's price when the market goes down. Must be because of the rating agencies. Rubber is cheaper now. Should be good for Goodyear. What is the history on the dividend?

  • Have IBM's Share Repurchases Created Value? [View article]
    The real advantage now is that shareholders own more of IBM than they did in 1999. Take a look in the new annual report when it comes out. Shareholders are going to be very pleased with what they own and it's a company in all of the key growth areas spread out across 5 continents. Few companies can achieve this kind of reach.
