  • Update: AuRico Gold's Earnings [View article]
    I will have to agree with this article from what the article has said. I bought shares in aurico gold during the year, but had to shorten them because but there were a little flew red flags that had caught my attention .

    During their conference call,which one can read. they spoke about the company had an increase of gold production and revenue this following quarter, but losing . From my understanding, this is due to increase of cash cost.

    Too add to that statement, the company's revenue increased this quarter. it doesn't add up why they slashed their dividend 2 straight times in a row from four cents all the way down to 0005. They never gave the actual reason why they slashed it? If it was due to more capital going to young Davidson mine and the project surrounding it, that's fine! They didn't disclose why their dividend was slashed? I believe that they might suspend the dividend.

    At the same time, they never gave no type of update about their debt at all. Was it paid off in full, or they decreased their debt at all.

    Not trying to tell no one to avoid aurico, but everyone is entitled to their on research in what they see.

  • Nevsun Still My Favorite Cash Cow [View article]
    I don't understand the negativity on this company. nevsun is a very good company and disversifiied . they have sustained their dividend way much better than the other gold producers like el dorado, Goldcorp, and Newmont due to the price of gold.IAM Gold has suspended their dividend. Even though they are becoming more focused on copper, I think they have done very well as a miner not cutting their dividend at all.. I think the two best dividend gold players are Caledonia mining and nevsun, they have done will with their cash costs connecting to the price of gold. LONG Nevsun

  • Google Or Apple: Which Is The Better Long Term Bet? [View article]
    even though I am not a shareholder of neither companies nor would invest in either companies, I think apple would be a better investment than google because they are slowly going back to be more focused on innovative products and it makes sense to buy dr. dre beats in my sense because it has a part to do with their secret plan what they are working on behind the scenes in music. Although google might be dominant in the internet arena, which I predict they won't be dominant no more in that arena. they aren't focused nomore in that area to which where they make 60-75% of their money in that area. Google has moved in other other areas like the google glass, the chromebook, the android, and robot company the they have acquired.

  • Google: Bullish Or Bearish? [View article]
    I agree with you on this one here. In the internet and search engine section they think that they can't be beat. in the search engine space based on my opinion, I think google dominance towards the internet will end if they don't wake up and get innovate and new with their internet search. like always, some unknown internet will pop out of nowhere in due time, and be a threat to google.

  • So THAT'S What A Turnaround Looks Like [View article]
    I think that there is competition in the internet space, which yahoo is making an aggressive turnaround by to compete against google. Overall, I think inuvo is the internet company that google better watch out for, because I think google has gotten the mentality no one can defeat and really compete with them in the internet space, which they as gotten the mentality slowly lagging away to be more innovative in the internet space, and moving in other. I think inuvo is the unknown company is showing aggressive innovation in the internet space. Due to the mist of inuvo turnaround, I think inuvo can really take the internet to another level, I strongly believe that they will ditch google's partnership once a lot of people start discovering, which I think they are using the partnership with google just for people to discover Overall, I think they can compete with google.Call me crazy. Long Inuvo

  • Samsung Is Building An Army To Fight Apple [View article]
    I strongly agree with you on this one! Apple might have rallied, but they are a cash hoard company that lacks a lot of innovaction! I think apple won't continue to be as the dominant player. Also, the iphones 4 or 5 doesn't have any thing unique or about it. Apple hasn't came up with anything different at all, execpt the ipad air, which I don't it's different .I think sony should be added to compete in the smartphone market, their xperia phone is more innovative than the iphone! Samsung does their things well, and beat apple as well

    Lol I hope they don't get bought out by sap because they can do well without sap. I think that they don't need to sell because a lot of investors and institional investors haven't discovered them yet! I think they need to keep doing what they doing and they will be fine.

  • AT&T: Financial Shenanigans, Painful Truth Coming [View article]
    In my opinion the author got the facts right, and I strongly agree with this article ! This is mainly 90% of what I have been seeing with at&t. None of at&t investors refuse to see that they are in such financial trouble and they are really struggling right now!

    After they tried to merge with t-moblie, they were required by the fcc to pay back 6 billion dollars as a break-up fee towards t-mobile.

    Next you look at at&t's quarter estimates concering their debt, at&t hasn't made no efforts to pay out their long-term debt at all, their long term debt from the previous quarter increased from 64 billion to over 70 billion dollars from their quarterly earnings, which it's stated in their finanical statements

    Long term debt can't be avoided not paid off at all, and which there is a maturity date it's going to have to be paid off! Number one I would address and add on to that, the dividend was in increased last year, which was their objective to attract more dividend investors! At&t has been paying out more in dividends, which is an estimate of 10 billion a quarter, this is not substainable to their debt to equity ratio!

    In my opinion, they should be aggressively paying off their debts, and creating unique value to customers, this will attract new investors to the company! However, a company that pays a high dividend-( along with high debt load )- and not doing things like focus on the business as creating unique value for the cutomers;in the long haul will be severe conques . Due to at&t not doing these things, it's causing their because at their dividend is in major jeopardy right now, which at&t investors who are in it for the dividend refuse to accept this at all.

    As stated, if At&t doesn't change their ways, at&t doesn't agressively start paying down debt and come up with nique plan to keep and attract more customers, they are going to lose more money on their their balance sheet leading to them to go to smaller carriers who agressively are firece, and the lost of their balance sheet and earning will cause them to supsend the dividend! Once the dividend is supsended , their stock will collapse and so will the company if they don't change. there are too many investors getting in at&t for the dividend and refuse to see the fundamatels like from their finances and the competion. I think it's going to collapse!

    Too add to this, competition is getting very fierce too like smaller carriers like sprint, t-mobile, metro- pcs and straight- talk! I believe that sprint will be the better investment over at&t because sprint is doing everything right! Even though they are trying to acquire t-mobile, and the if merger doesn't go through the both companies are still huge threats to at&t!

  • Oracle: A Great Long-Term Stock Investment For Patient Investors [View article]
    Oracle might have made the buy-outs of taletented tech competers in order to compete with other other data and software companies, and this reason is that they are so highly valued! To me, it's like they are giving oracle technology rather than oracle coming up with unique and innovative ideas to stay ahead! I don't think oracle have done well of that, just as google! I think the real threat to oracle is a small company called clicksoftware technologies they have done an awesome job with being seperate and very unique with enterprises, apps, and workforce!

  • 3 Good Reasons To Own ClickSoftware: Value Proposition, Economic Returns And Management Competence [View article]
    I have been researching this company due to my judgments i have never seen a company so unique technology like them! They have unique technology to solve problems that workforce and different fields are facing! I like the click app stores and they have the panic app that type of ideal techology was so clear cut and unique to me for the workforce.I think this company can really hit oracle in the mouth hard. This company is so unique and so- out of the box thinking and they really focused on delievering their product well, and they focused on the problems of the customer. On the other hand by Oracle to me, they don't know how to do that, the only thing they do is buy out other companies to give technology to them and never trying any efforts to advance or innovate , just like google. Oracle doesn't know out of the box thinking like this company. This isreali company can compete with oracle! I am buying shares and I am very impressed with the out-of the box ideas this company presents.

  • 10 Reasons Why AT&T Dividend Investors Should Sell Now [View instapost]
    You are right! At&t dividend is in die-hard jeopardy that i have seen! To add to that, their long term debt has increased from 64 to 70 billion dollars in debt, which they haven't made any efforts to to pay any off their debts off! What concerns me, at&t is extremely hurting after they tried to merge to t-mobile because they were required to pay a 6 billion dollar break-up fee! Too, they don't add any value to their customers at all, but charge them per 4 gyabite by which they have abolished their unlimited plans! I have a bad feeling their dividend is coming to an end, and their stock is going to crash if they spend the dividend!! I also have a bad feeling, sprint is fence to take a ton of market share from at&t due to the acquistion with softbank, and t-mobile with metro-pcs.

  • The Bullish Case For Junior Gold Miner Claude Resources [View article]
    I think claude is a very undervalued company, but the projects with the madsen and amisk projects have very good value. I see a friendly small company, which is overlooked unlike newmont mining, barrick gold, gold corp, and kinross gold! Besides, The company have honest and good mangement, and a ceo who know very well about the problems with the u.s. dollar!
    I have been buying claude since it's at the lowest at 16 cents a share, which i am longing this company. I believe that this company will bounce back since it's very undervalued, which it will take a minute!! It's one of my favorite gold company.

  • Profiting Off The Justice Department's AT&T/T-Mobile Announcement [View article]
    I disagree with this article because at&t isn't a safe dividend to be in because the payout ratio for at&t is way to high and the yield is over 5% , which is 10 billion dollars per quarter they are paying more dividends than microsoft and apple!

    From their previous quarter from 2012 and 2013, at&t's long term debt has increased from 64 billion to 70 billion dollars in long term debt! One company can't have a debt that high and continues to pay dividends like they are, which the dividend always get spended soon of a later, it always happens in the stock market!!!! At&t dividend is in die-hard jeopardy right now! The supension from their dividend is coming if they don't find a solution to decrease their long- term debts!

    To add to this note, the deal with t-mobile didn't pass through, which is true but failed to understand that at&t had to pay 6 billion dollar break up fee, which did put a hurting on at&t! At&t struggling right now, it hasn't shown but if you take a good look, they are!

    I would be long sprint and stay long away from at&t because I beleive that sprint will be surpise comeback of the century and they will take a lot of market share from at&t! Now with their acquistion with softbank, they have more spectrum to compete with at&t.
