  • What Is Saudi Arabia Thinking? [View article]
    If we don't export oil, why don't we have our own oil market that is completely insulated from the rest of the world? We should price our oil based on what the US market will pay. It is likely we would pay more for our own oil so that we have a secure resource and know the price. U.S. companies should buy the oil in advance before it is produced thereby taking it off the market that is traded by OPEC or whomever.

  • My Best Idea For 2015: General Motors [View article]
    GM is a global play, primarily in North America and China. Europe hasn't done well in years.
    "DETROIT – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) dealers in the United States delivered 225,818 vehicles last month for the company’s best November sales in seven years. Total sales were up 6 percent compared to a year ago, retail sales were up 5 percent and fleet deliveries were up 11 percent."

    "GM has now posted 26 consecutive months of year-over-year average transaction price (ATP) increases on the strength of new pickup trucks, SUVs and Cadillacs."
    GM is doing great in America!

    "DETROIT – General Motors Co. (NYSE: GM) sold 2,449,595 vehicles around the world in the third quarter of 2014, up 2 percent compared with a year ago. It was the company’s best third quarter since 1980. In the first nine months of 2014, GM sold 7,371,743 vehicles, up 2 percent.

    Third quarter sales in the United States and China, the company’s two largest markets, were up 8 percent and 14 percent, respectively. Year to date, sales in the United States and China were up 4 percent and 12 percent, respectively.

    GM is on track to surpass sales of 3 million vehicles in China for the second consecutive year and the company expects to top last year’s record sales of 3.16 million vehicles. During September, GM’s cumulative sales in China surpassed 20 million vehicles.

    “GM delivered its best third quarter global sales in 34 years thanks to solid growth in the United States and China, and steady improvement in Opel’s market share,” said GM CEO Mary Barra. “We have launches now underway, including the Chevrolet Colorado and GMC Canyon in North America, the Opel/Vauxhall Corsa in Europe, and the Buick Envision and Cadillac ATS-L in China, that will keep our momentum going.”

  • 3 Reasons IBM Might Quiet The Naysayers In 2015 [View article]
    Obviously if someone is a competitor of any of the companies in the OpenPower group, they aren't going to recommend OpenPower.
    Rackspace has been touted for years by the Fastmoney/CNBC hedge fund managers, and the P/E of the stock is 69.7. So I would think the hedge funds might like to know this news.
    They also ran up Arm Holdings' stock, which is also in the article. This year they ran up Intel.

    Rackspace to Reduce Intel Reliance With IBM-Led Group
    http://bloom.bg/1qWVkeT
    "Rackspace Hosting Inc. (RAX) plans to reduce its dependence on Intel Corp. (INTC) chips by shifting to some server computers based on modified International Business Machine Corp. (IBM) processors...Sullivan said the company has been surprised by how easy it has been to make Rackspace’s software work with the IBM-designed chips. He added that Rackspace chose to develop chips based on IBM’s Power rather than designs from U.K. semiconductor firm ARM Holdings Plc (ARM) because those chips didn’t do well in tests."

  • GM lower after stinging RBC Capital downgrade [View news story]
    I think this downgrade is a big mistake. German automakers do not have the reputation they once had. And people do not want to pay a premium for both the car and the service, when basically all cars do the same thing now. GM and Ford sell the most vehicles in the USA, especially suvs and trucks, with gasoline becoming cheaper. No one has to buy a VW bug. Too bad that stock analysts can't see this.

  • 3 Reasons IBM Might Quiet The Naysayers In 2015 [View article]
    This isn't true. IBM has bought hundreds of companies over the past decade, and debt has increased mostly because of that. IBM is a model company for how to do M & A, and integrate those companies with your business.
    Download the following report from a google search and read about IBM's M&A.

    "IBM Verse uses built-in analytics to provide an ‘at-a-glance’ view that intelligently surfaces an individual’s most critical actions for the day." We've signed up for the early version. It sounds wonderful!

  • Is IBM Really In Such Bad Shape? [View article]
    No one ever said the hardware business was dead. Even IBM said they were still in the semiconductor business and the hardware business. They just aren't hanging onto divisions that lose money.

  • Is IBM Really In Such Bad Shape? [View article]
    If someone tries something and it works, why would they not want to be a business partner? Many people want to be a business partner with IBM. Should we ignore what Apple, Twitter, and Cisco think of IBM because they are business partners?

  • Plays For The Euro Heading To Parity To The Dollar [View article]
    Multinationals have divisions in Europe, do business in euros, pay employees in euros, and make and sell products in euros. It doesn't do much of anything unless you just look at earnings converted from euros to dollars in the earnings call. Even then they usually say the effect of currency conversion in the earnings call. As an investor, I do not care.

  • Plays For The Euro Heading To Parity To The Dollar [View article]
    The U.S. expanded at a 3.5 percent annualized rate from July through September, after growing 4.6 percent in the second quarter, according to Commerce Department data. So whatever you claim for Europe, the USA grows a lot faster.
    There isn't any way the Netherlands grew at 2% annualized.

    Whose bonds are they going to buy? I don't understand how it's going to work with so many different sovereign countries.

    How do they know what people are going to buy once they get cheaper gasoline? Perhaps they are lowballing. You can't drink the tap water in many countries.
