  • Wall Street Loves IBM Again [View article]
    IBM is down today in sympathy with ACN whose profit was down while their revenue was up. Profit does matter. Buy IBM.

    Shareholders prefer share buybacks because we do not pay personal income tax on buybacks.

    Analysts use non-GAAP earnings for comparison purposes. That is what is reported as EPS. MSN Money's numbers aren't much different.

  • The Only 20 Companies That Matter [View article]
    All of these companies look reasonably priced to me with the first list cheaper. I see no reason to expect a market crash or a recession. And there are 480 other companies whose earnings may be growing faster in the S&P 500. When companies make billions of dollars but face a lower earnings one or two years later, they are still making billions of dollars. Corporations will change, CEOs will change, boards will change, and earnings growth will resume. The last recession wasn't triggered by a problem with earnings, and hopefully the banks are wiser since then.

  • Why And How To Buy Corporate Bonds In A Likely Increasing Interest Rate Environment [View article]
    Thanks. I think high yield bonds are going to be crushed if the stock market dips because they trade in tandem. You can find stocks that pay dividends greater than 5.6%. I would rather own a highly-rated dividend stock with a lower dividend and expect appreciation then to pay a premium for a high yield bond.

  • Early look at March U.S. auto sales winners and losers [View news story]

    Actually marketshare doesn't matter as much as how much profit you made on what volume.

  • Salesforce.com Tanked Post Earnings: Now What? [View article]
    The P/E is 113. So it won't be a good investment unless you can talk momentum investors to buy stocks based on revenue growth.

  • Salesforce.com Tanked Post Earnings: Now What? [View article]
    At the bottom of this page, you can see that one of the insiders sold all of his shares. If you can find out why, that would be interesting to investors.

  • Macy's: 16 Different Insiders Have Sold Shares During The Last 30 Days [View article]
    I would short any other department store before I shorted Macy's. JCPenney's is losing money. Look up the income statements (either on yahoo finance or MSN Money is quick) on all the department stores for the past year and you will see that Macy's is one of the strongest.
    Both sales growth and earnings growth are expected to be positive for Macy's in this next earnings report. You can check the expectations here:

    Insider sentiment on Macy's is neutral.

  • Why And How To Buy Corporate Bonds In A Likely Increasing Interest Rate Environment [View article]
    I will sit in cash while I look for cheap stocks to buy, but thanks anyway. I was hoping you could point me to a place to find bonds that are cheaper than the inventory TDAmeritrade and Fidelity offer.

  • February Existing Home Sales Data Shows Accelerating Housing Market Contraction [View article]
    News recently was that new home builders were booming in California. The last prnews I saw on Ryland were for new townhomes in Irvine for $400,000. If people can pay $300,000 for condos in Nashville, they can certainly pay $400,000 in Calif. Ryland has made the land acquisitions. Spring is going to see these stocks go up.
