  • The Facebook Face-Plant And How I'm Coping With It [View article]
    People made fun of GOOG when they bought Android in 2005. But the key to growth is... growing the business. I think FB is the next GOOG and will be over $1000 per share 10 years from now. Buying the dips. Whether I'm in at $70 or $60 or $45, I think it's going to $1000.

    There. I said it.

  • Is It Time To Sell Facebook And Buy LinkedIn? [View article]
    Well, I don't ever look at Linked In, but I do go to Facebook most everyday. I think 10 years from now, FB will be at $1000 per share. It just won't go there in a straight line up. FB is the next Google.

  • Johnson & Johnson: A Dividend 'King' With A Bright Future [View article]
    I'm also long $JNJ for many of the reasons you mention. I like their diversity and figure they'll continue to sell all kinds of products to consumers for a very long time.

  • Johnson & Johnson May Add Significantly To The Fortunes Of Shareholders [View article]
    I'm long $JNJ because I think the company will be around 50 years from now, and continue to sell a lot of stuff. It's not a sexy stock by any means, but it continues to grow and pay dividends. I don't even look at the charts of these kinds of stocks. I just own 'em and reinvest in them.

    A lot of people have gotten rich over the long term by buying, owning, and reinvesting in stocks that are here now and will be here 50 years from now.

    Long JNJ, T, UPS, DIS, XOM, MCD

  • Fiscal cliff negotiations between Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and Minority Leader Mitch McConnell hit a major snag after Republicans demand use of the "chained CPI" method for calculating entitlement benefits - which would result in lower payments for Social Security beneficiaries. Pres. Obama backed the provision previously, but Democrats now object to including it as part of a scaled-down deal. Updated 5:51 p.m.: The Senate won't vote tonight and will reconvene at 11 a.m. tomorrow, Reid says. [View news story]
    Actually, slowing the growth rate of Social Security benefits is a very practical approach.

    I saw you this year in concert, and I think you'll be lucky to see another 20 years, Mick!

  • S&P 500 futures +0.4% don't yet suggest a positive tone to tomorrow's open. Futures continued to fall Friday following the close of stock trading. The gain this evening just brings the S&P back to where it stood at 4PM Friday afternoon. Earlier: Still no deal. [View news story]
    I don't really want to pay more in taxes, but if the country does go over the cliff I think it will be an inportant lesson for all of those who think the Bush tax cuts only cut taxes for the rich.

    An important lesson indeed.

  • Dissecting Sirius XM's Subscriber Picture [View article]
    Well, I got a 3-month free trial with my new car. The programming is good, but not worth the money they want for it. They eventually call you with a $4.99 a month offer. But even that's not really worth it. Much of the content is available with apps on an iPhone or Android Phone, since the new cars have bluetooth to stream content to.

    So I put 1000 songs on the iPhone, use the Tunein radio app on the iPhone for various radio stations/themes, and a podcast app, and save the subscriber fee. Pandora, too.

  • Revisiting My Bullish Thesis On Intel [View article]
    $INTC may have short term issues with windows 8 on the horizon and tablets in the headlines. Also, if the market pulls back in Sept and Oct, it may be a little weak.

    But the company isnt going away and will be the major player in business desktops and laptops. They need to grow their percentages in the mobile market. I think they can do that.

    No positions yet.
