  • Santa Delivers Cars For December [View article]
    I followed most of your argument quite wellbut you lost me at the end. Why Ford?

    If we were to look at year-on-year changes, there are other comapnies that are doing better e.g. Chrysler, Honda, Porsche among others. So why do you believe that Ford has the most upside?

  • Did Vringo Traders Overreact To Google's Flip Flop? [View article]
    @modernist,

    a (causal?) correlation between call options expiry and Steve Kim articles??

    Please check your facts. Steve Kim has written 17 articles on SA, all on the subject of VRNG. The dates of his articles are:
    Oct 1,2,4,5,5,9,9,13,16, 24, 26, 29, 30
    Nov 1, 12, 12
    Dec 6th.

    You are just plain wrong on this. It is my opinion that you are attempting to deflect criticism of Ravicher by attempting to discredit other authors of SA. However your attempt fails as your facts are wrong as I have just shown.

    I refer to your statement:
    "Now back to the statement by Google; ask yourself, what did Vringo respond with about whether Google had attempted any settlement discussions? Zippo."

    Actually, in his article yesterday, Dan said:
    "On New Year's Eve, Vringo filed its opposition to Google's postponement request, saying in pertinent part,

    Defendants' claim that a delay is necessary for the parties to negotiate post-judgment royalties themselves is disingenuous. Defendants have not contacted I/P Engine at all since the jury's verdict to convene any such negotiations. "

  • Google Flip Flops, Concedes Vringo Entitled To Ongoing Royalties [View article]
    OK guys. The name calling has come back again. Let's keep this civil. I have been to Yahoo Message Board and I have been to Seeking Alpha. The level of discussion here is much higher. Let's keep up the standard and not let it degenerate.

    Nice article. However as some of the commenter have said, you should use it on stocks that you are willing to own. Examples would beof fundamentally sound companies. AAPL, KO, MSFT, INTC come to mind.

    @marpha,

    Not sure I follow your reasoning. The reason for GOOG's motion was to allow time for the parties to come to a settlement. However if, as stated by VRNG, GOOG has not approached VRNG to discuss settlement, that destros that argument.

  • The Curious Collapse At Las Vegas Sands [View article]
    "I think the same thing is happening in Singapore, that the Chinese are averse to uncertainty. And they don't know what's going to happen when the new government comes in either this month or next month, but before the end of the year."

    Not sure I understand this comment. The Singapore general elections were held on 7th May 2011. The People's Action Party (PAP) which was the ruling party before the elections, won the elections although with a smaller majority. They won 81 out of a total of 87 parliamentary seats. There would therefore have been no change in government.

    "Defendants' claim that a delay is necessary for the parties to negotiate post-judgment royalties themselves is disingenuous. Defendants have not contacted I/P Engine at all since the jury's verdict to convene any such negotiations."

    This was the single most interesting paragraph that I found in the article. Also means that the final judgement MAY come sooner than expected.

  • Netflix Gives Reed Hastings Huge Raise: Why? [View article]
    NFLX do not get their content for free. They have to pay for their content. Due to this, they have a high debt load. If AAPL or anyone were to buy NFLX, they would inherit this huge debt. Why should they?

    It is my opinion that the tragedy of the commons http://bit.ly/T0CL6d is a concept that is underappreciated. Nice to see someone talking about it.

    Thank you for the article. I used to trade NFLX up to about a year ago but have not looked at it for a while. You have re-awakened my interest. Thank you.
