  • Apple's 2 Biggest 'Problems' Are Red Herrings [View article]
    And the iPhone was a phone with a touchscreen!

    Do you not think Alexander Graham Bell had these in mind?

    barantos, since these successes were so foreseeable I look forward to whatever gadget your company produces next!

  • My 10 Stocks For A Young Dividend Growth Investor: Q1 Update [View article]
    I'm a young DGI, and own all of these except HSY and CL. Both have just always been too expensive.

    I'd pay for that with growth like MA, SBUX, NKE, or V, but not for mature companies like that.

    Amazing list, great article, thanks.

  • Apple Watch reviews arrive; SocGen downgrades to Hold [View news story]
    It took 8 years for the iPhone to morph into an indispensable must have gadget, that sold 75 million units in a quarter.

    If the Apple Watch doesn't sell a 25 million units the first quarter it will be fine. Wearables will adapt to both increased computing power in the future, and a million, paying, willing, beta testers will help streamline the device for mass consumption later on.

    I know "now" matters more than anything else, these days, but I think the real growth will lie in the 3rd-4th generation of this product.

  • 'The Death Of The 'Millionaire Next Door' Dream' - A Reply [View article]
    Spring Break in Florida crowd?

    Worse than the Woodstock '69 crowd?

    This must be the first generation to party.

    Strange, since it seems the Baby Boomers invented it.

  • Caterpillar to move jobs from Illinois to Mexico [View news story]
    I've held CAT for a while, probably should have unloaded last time it ran to 100.

    This makes me a little bit sad, to see one of the last great American Industrials shuttering up factories in Peoria and Joliet to "stay competitive."

    I wish corporations would look to cost cutting measures at the executive level to "stay competitive." But no, the men that sit at the oak desks, will receive raises, while blue collar and mid level management jobs are shed at an alarming rate.

    And sentimental shareholders like myself, wonder why I didn't sell out at the top of the last cycle.

  • Philip Morris: Show Me A 5.5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    PM is evil but HSBC, who has been convicted of laundering money for drug cartels and middle eastern dictators, is alright with you morally?

    BP, a company that almost single handedly destroyed an entire ecosystem?

    Pick your battles but don't espouse your moral superiority while owning shares in a company that willingly laundered money for some of the most violent drug organizations in modern human history.

  • Adidas to sit out next NBA sponsor bidding war [View news story]
    The official supplier of NBA merchandise doesn't mean anything.

    The superstars of the league sell brands. NBA is the one professional sports league where the names on the back of jersey mean more than the names on the front of it.

  • TiVo: 1.5M cord-cutters in the wings amid mass dissatisfaction [View news story]
    It's not 1960. It's gone. Forever.

    Nostalgia in America and its politics is ridiculous.

    There is one constant in this world: change.

    And for about all of the history of humanity change has made life both better and easier.

    Sorry. But that's a fact.

  • Apple Watch Edition: Price - Simple Logic [View article]
    Remember in 2007 when iPhones came out?

    And 8 years later they are not only the same price they are selling in ever increasing numbers? While there are hundreds of other smart phones on the market that people can't give away?

  • Target Is An Attractive Value [View article]
    Are you just writing momentum articles to get clicks?

    In August you wrote this stock was overvalued when it traded at 60. 6 months later it trades at 78 a share and it is attractively valued?

    If anyone listened to you they wouldn't buy the stock when it was genuinely undervalued, and now that the stock is slightly overvalued you're telling them to buy?

    Cheers man, get your clicks. Don't let me stop you from making your money but, I hope people realize this before listening to your advice in the future.
