  • 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.

    How can IBM possibly ignore all the naysayers claiming to be former insiders posting on here? Perhaps because you can talk with real IBMers on twitter and on their website.
    People will say anything for money, especially to sell a book. What I question is why anyone with a career for 30 years at IBM would not own any stock. I know a former IBM manager whose consulting company went bankrupt at the beginning of the recession and he still owns all of his IBM stock even after depleting his 401k. Usually people hang onto IBM. I just question the author's reasoning to sell all of his IBM stock. When someone tells you to sell your IBM stock, it's usually for their benefit. I wouldn't even have my IBM stock in an account set up for options and margin because your broker wants to get his hands on it. They will email and call you hoping to break you down. They cannot get their hands on the shares and they need them to cover their positions and to deliver them to new owners. There is a real shortage of shares and most likely phantom shares are traded overseas.

    Revenue growth means very little. Wall Street has poured billions of dollar into companies with revenue growth who lose money each year. It may make people wealthy but it doesn't put capitalism in a positive light.

    IBM hires both MBAs and engineers as consultants, not just for management. You don't know anything about the business.

    Your article is incorrect in the beginning. For the past 15 years, IBM has returned 5.5% annualized while the S&P has returned 4.1%.
    There are many other things wrong with your article so for IBM shareholders, I suggest you read something else.
    All companies are hiring less making existing employees work harder. It's called productivity. And wages for IBMers have gone up more than the average college graduate. That is why IBM continues to hire only the very best, most of whom now have MBAs.

    This is an amazing fact and I didn't even know IBM was in the agency business. IBM is the largest digital agency worldwide.

  • Retirees: Is Dividend Growth Alone Enough? [View article]
    In 2009, a whopping 57 percent of dividend-paying companies, located in 23 developed markets, either reduced their dividends or eliminated them altogether.
    You need to read this:
    Myth No. 1: Dividends hold up in bad markets.
    Myth No. 2: Dividend-paying stocks outperform the market.
    Myth No. 3: Dividend-paying stocks provide adequate diversification.
    Myth No. 4: Dividends are a reliable source of future income.
    Myth No. 5: Dividends are tax efficient.
    Myth No. 6: Buying dividend stocks is a prudent way to obtain exposure to value stocks.
    Myth No. 7: Dividend-paying stocks are a substitute for bonds.

  • Cloud software stocks rally after NetSuite results, Pac Crest note [View news story]
    These bubble stocks are going to do the same thing gold has done. Hedge funds will hype it and then sell. Selling will compound more selling. You don't want to be here for the summer.

    I think it is a good company to own but would have to do more research on it.

  • IBM: The Best Dividend Growth Stock In Tech [View article]
    You are correct. Another reason I'm not selling IBM and some of my other stocks. Gifting shares to anyone other than your church or tax-free organization just makes them pay more tax.

  • Has The Apple Fallen? [View article]
    I haven't researched the issue but my experience is that there is a short term dip but a longer term gain. The short term dip does go against the grain. Perhaps it matters on what else is going on. The Ex Date - June 9, 2014 - the date determined by NASDAQ when Apple common shares will trade at the new split-adjusted price. A 7-for-1 split means that six additional shares of stock are issued for each share in existence on the Record Date, June 2, 2014.
