  • 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

  • 3 Good Reasons To Own ClickSoftware: Value Proposition, Economic Returns And Management Competence [View article]
    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.

  • Telecom Companies: 3 Safe, 4 Dangerous Dividends [View article]
    I disagree that at&t is a safe dividend stock because from the previous quarters from 2012 to 2013 have went from 64 billion to 70 billion dollars in long term debt! Their dividend to me is in die hard jeopardy right now because one can't continue pay 10 billion dollars and dividends every quarter and then have a huge long term debt that has extremely high with a yield over 5 %. Every stock that pays a dividend that has a lot of debt, they always have spended their dividend, it's a cycle that always happen in the markets!
    .Due to the merger that happened between t-mobile and at&t, it didn't go through and it caused them to pay 6 billion dollar break- up fee! At&t is struggling right now, and their dividend is going to get cut! I would not be in at&t right now! I would invest in sprint

  • Why I Don't Invest In Banks: A JPMorgan Case Study [View article]
    I agree with you on the banks above! I think bank stocks are very bad long term investments! My first reason why is because the percentage of loans on an average apr increased more from 5 percent or more, which banks make 80% of their earnings off of lending out loans, which another percentage is by small fees in checkings! Today, the vast majority of people are trying to avoid loans to purchase mostly a car, a house, or etc, which they are trying to save, and the percentage returns on savings are very low right now! This is because of the banks are borrowing money from the saver and have to pay back by low interest to the saver! In the long term, I consider mining stocks way much better long term investments than bank stocks!

  • 10 Undervalued Bank Stocks For The Long Haul [View article]
    Personally I think bank stocks are bad long term investments and that they are way too risky to mess because the average interest rate on apr for loans are higher than usual! In this day and time, a lot of people are trying to avoid loans now and trying to save to get rather it's a house, car,or maybe pay for college! It's really how banks make 80% of their profits besides through secret fees on checkings! In addition, Interest rates on savings are very low right now due to them have to pay back on interest to the saver! I think long natural resource stocks and avoid bank stocks!

  • Avoid Bank Stocks as Tail Risk Increases [View article]
    I agree with this article because it's necessary to avoid bank stocks because the loan rates from mortage, cars, and education( college) rates have increased! This leads to the problem with bank stocks because they increase interest rates at an average apr over amount of time! Another problem with bank stocks is the fees that they have with checking and savings account, which the rates on savings are extremely low! Catch this, loans are the major thing that banks rely on in order to keep a strong balance sheet! Loan interest rates have increased and it going to rise! To me, I woudn't invest in bank stocks because their business stuctures causing more problems! You can't increase interest rates on loans and take continue to take charge fees on people's checking acounts, and think it's going to continue to be a strong balance street during inflation! I am not saying we need banks, but we need banks to store our money! It's clear to me not to be investing in bank stocks because they are in a huge bubble and I think they won't bounce back! Mining stocks and precious metals is where to be at!

  • Why I Took A Flyer On This $1 Gold Miner [View article]
    I have added to my position even though it's 20 cents a share! This company has a lot of potential and a very focused business! I think claude resources will out peform a lot of junior gold mining companies, will be the dominant candian mining company along with lake shore gold! It's my favorite gold mining company! I think they are someone to take interest in, and start investing now! I don't look at price frustrations like a lot of people do, I look at the business and where see where it's going, if the business is focused like claude resources is, the stock price will take care itself! This will be a great perfomer!
