  • A Bull Market That Few Are Buying [View article]
    The biggest mistake of all was made years ago by allowing commercial banks to become investment banks. Once you allow banks who are regulated by the government to trade in risky classes of investment products, then anyone could have foreseen the consequence of where we are today. And instead of holding these decision makers responsible and doing a proper investigation for possible fraud thereby at least removing them from their executive position, these same men are regarded as advisors to our most highly-elected office. If our government can investigate someone's sexual acts, you would think they could investigate the people who caused this demise of our stock markets and our economy.

  • Dividend Investors Should Get Ready To Load Up [View article]
    You are cutting off your nose to spite your face. Everyone will pay the same rate on the first $200k. And a rate that is a little higher on the rest isn't going to curtail anyone from trying to earn more money.

  • Surviving And Prospering Over The Next 4 Years Of Economic Darkness [View article]
    The first 2 years Obama was able to pull us out of recession and pass several pieces of legislation because we had a Democratic house. The negative media, primarily Fox News, managed to put the Republicans back in at the midterm election. So not much else could be accomplished because of the teaparty. You can't really blame Obama as the teaparty would not compromise at all.

  • In Defense Of Apple: Battling The Mounting Hysteria [View article]
    I have to wonder why people are throwing their shares away at these prices. Compare what Apple makes in profits to any other company. Commentators keep mentioning how great Amazon is, which has very little EPS. From this article below you will see that Apple makes more profit in one quarter than Amazon made in its entire history.

    I am so sick of hearing the word socialism. Would you say that all the people blogging away about socialism are creating anything of value or working hard to create jobs? I certainly don't think so. I think you are all living off of people who actually work.

  • Has Samsung Dethroned Apple? [View article]
    Most kids who have iPhones want their parents to get one. When someone buys what you have, it's a compliment. The other smartphones may be good too, but they are considered to be a cheaper alternative. This year, it is believed that Android will lose market share to the other vendors. When you are number 1, it is difficult to maintain market share. And it is believed that Samsung will lose market share, especially in China, to all the Chinese manufacturers. The Chinese would rather buy American brands than Korean ones in general. That's why Coach does so well in China. I believe Apple will do well in China once all the carriers offer iPhones.
    One thing to remember is being a large technology company is not easy, nor is it always that profitable. Samsung's stock is over $1500. Their 2012 annual report is not available for some reason. I would not be investing in any company or Korean ETF unless I did my own due diligence.

    This article is a waste of space. I have to wonder why Seekingalpha allows it.

    The people who throw away their shares after hours certainly aren't "the smart money".

  • In Defense Of Apple: Battling The Mounting Hysteria [View article]
    "Amazon's price-earnings ratio is currently a mind-boggling 3,275x. Apple's is 10x. Traditional valuation metrics are obviously pointless for Amazon, but if you were to use Amazon's PE for Apple, the stock would be trading at $144,618 per share, for a market cap of $136 trillion."

  • The Geithner Plan FAQ [View article]
    Will the return on these toxic assets be in today's dollars or in the deflated value of the dollar after we pile on trillions of dollars of more debt?

  • Why Apple Is A Short-Term Sell Based On David Einhorn's Plan [View article]
    " I have no positions in any stocks mentioned, and no plans to initiate any positions within the next 72 hours."

    So why write an article with this kind of headline. If you don't own it, then it is not important to you. Are you being paid to write it for some hedge fund who is short?

  • What Is Wrong With Microsoft? [View article]
    What Microsoft needs to do is give more updates on how their business is going because as you can see with Dell and HP's price people think the pc business is being replaced by mobile devices.
    And Microsoft needs to find parts of their business that they can spin off and create value for shareholders.
    And Microsoft needs to emphasize that they are one of the few companies that have a AAA credit rating. Their stock should trade at a premium because of their credit rating and cash flow.

    If you have TDAmeritrade go read Credit Suisse's report on AAPL.
    It will ease any concern you have and has me convinced to add money into the stock.
    Patience required, structurally solid
    ■ Reiterate O/P, lower TP to $600. (outperform but lowered price target)
    ■ Three steps to a recovery: none coming imminently, patience required. (They expect both a high-end and a low-end phone coming this year.)
    ■ iPhone growth drivers exist. (More high end phones, more carriers, and more innovation where Apple leads.)
    ■ Set to dominate the fast growing tablet space. (Apple has captured 56% of the tablet market!)
