  • Is Now The Time To Buy Seagate Technology? [View article]
    Great article, thanks. I've been eyeing STX for over a year now and completely agree with you that we are beginning to see that HDD's will stay relevant for much longer than initially "feared".

  • IBM: A Disaster In The Making [View article]
    I do not agree with you that 'the public cloud is the way of the future' or that 'no money to be made in the public cloud'. Technology is just changing way too fast to make generalizations like that. The great companies (like IBM) who are able to provide the superior product will be able to charge a hefty premium for their services.

    Let's not forget how much IBM has changed the game in emerging technologies and how much they will continue to do so well into the future. I believe their investments in OpenStack will keep them at the top of the cloud industry going forward. I have heard comparisons to Unix in how much IBM plans to invest and innovate their products with OpenStack. Medium-term IBM may be facing headwinds (who isn't nowadays?) but long-term IBM is a company to hold.

    Your analysis of each of these companies in one paragraph each really ruins this article for me.

  • Cloud Computing Technology - Investment Strategy: IBM, Microsoft, Intel, Oracle, Amazon [View article]
    There is more room for growth in smaller stocks affected by cloud technology, I agree. I like LSI and WDC to name a few.

    bearfund - Oracle develops the largest open source databasing solution in market today. The company has a boat of cash and is investing in making their software easier to use. This is no easy task and does take time as cloud computing is in high demand right now. Just last week though:

    In the company's earnings release, Larry Ellison, Oracle CEO, said the company would announce new features soon.
    "A little more than a week from now we will announce lots of enhancements to the Oracle Cloud," Ellison said.

    JohnOkada- These companies that you are listing are just a part of what cloud computing is capable of. Storage is a very small part of what makes up cloud technologies.

    Good article. I agree with your picks but do believe that AMZN is overpriced. Their content distribution system is profitable, but not as much so as investors think. Just like Netflix and their realization of profits from content distribution, the stock will more than likely take a correction.

  • Why Haven't Amazon Shares Collapsed? Because Jeff Bezos Is The Next Elon Musk, Not The Next Steve Jobs [View article]
    Funny that their PE has skyrocketed so much in 2012 alone. This is most likely due to the Amazon Prime venture and integration with the Kindle Fire. The release of pay-for-content with Amazon Prime has created so much interest but profits will be rationalized (just as they were with Netflix and their pay-for-content model) and the stock will take its correction. May take a few years though. I do think Amazon is a great company with potential for immense profits, but the stock is insanely overpriced at the moment.

    Totally opinionated. I disagree with so many points here.

  • Groupon Still Isn't Cheap At $4.50 Per Share [View article]
    I was half joking. GRPN is suffering the same fate most web-ipo's are right now which is clumping them together. The fact is that these are very different businesses with very different business models. All of them should be studied extensively before investing. In my opinion, stay away.

    Short: ZNGA, GRPN, FB, and ANGI

  • 4 Reasons To Pick Up This High Growth Stock On A Market Pullback [View article]
    I have Jan13 calls. Hoping to see a rally as I definitely see cloud computing taking big steps recently.

    Margins are too thin and operating costs too high. Bring in some harsh competition from Google Boutique (rolled out in china so you can kiss that market goodbye) and you will have an under-performer in a flooded environment.

    The amount of data generated using information systems in 2 weeks will be generated in 10 minutes by the year 2020. I'm an IT student and heard this statistic yesterday.

    Just can't believe the investors bought them. Can't blame the company for poor investing decisions. I've stayed away until now.

    Oh a similar company is also failing even when they break record numbers? Tell me more about how that business model will fare in Europe right now.
