  • Can Coach Capitalize On Michael Kors' Weakness? [View article]
    KORS does not publish monthly sales that I could find via google. Where did you get yours for April-June? Reason for p/e difference, as you should have noted, is that KORS grew > 60% last reported quarter while COH had net decrease in revenues yoy.

    COH may be a buy but your info on KORS revenue slowdown is suspicious at best.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Tax Inversions, Solar Tariffs, Samsung Delay [View article]
    NM also provides free tuition to a state funded school to those that graduated high school in NM & meet academic & time requirements (4 years).

    Since 2000, state universities tuition '& fees (total cost), in the Lone Star State have, at a minimum, doubled since deregulation which simply meant the state cut some funding. Homeowners have had a 25% & another double digit insurance increase in the last 2 years. Today, I read that long-term disability insurance can rise up to 75% over LY. Wonder why we have an insurance board? I get it, jobs!

    It's a pretty good chance that Trailer park Tom is in jail or on probation. Great money to be made on those that make a mistake unless you're Richey Richard.

    Might as well try to sue the Prez. Everything else has been tried (and failed miserably). Unless you consider Moody's downgrading the U.S. in August of 2011 a win.

    As a youngster in the early 70's (IT profession) I witnessed many > 45 year olds getting laid off. After several years I understood why. Those that got laid off, generally, were half glass empty whiners. Most were quite capable & had a good work ethic but managers do not want to spend half their day listening to whiners.

    Today, most > 50 year olds working as a professional that are non senior management, tend to not whine (out loud) & do their work proficiently as could those that got laid off but couldn't get past not whining.

    I saw this play out over & over again in the 70's, 80's, 90's & 2000's.

    Saved my money & when I reached the age of "whining" I started a business & subsequently retired to do my own thing with no boss or employees.

    Moral of story for youngsters, "whine on your time, not the company's".

    Long (NASDAQ:LOCO). No pun intended.

    "Will the 5.5" iPhone replace the mini-iPad?"

    Not for me as my mini is a perfect device that I use > 90% of the time. I plan to upgrade from iPhone5 & get a 4.7 in iPhone6 this fall. Personally, even an iPhone6 5.5in would not replace my mini as I need a larger screen & won't carry that big of a phone around. My mini is wifi only so don't carry it around unless overnight stay. Also, if a new mini with finger print & A8 is available I will upgrade then as well.

    Buck.... Yep I'm with you but I missed Chipotle (NYSE:CRM) & wished I hadn't. The CEO was touting the "healthy choice" even though the restaurants have been around way before the health craze & just kinda fell in the category.

    I'm not saying they are the next Chipotle but they are constructing a new restaurant about 5 miles from me & if I see a Chipotle type customer there in large masses, I'm in.

    Popped an additional 10% after Halftime CNBC program mentioned it & Josh Brown wasn't afraid to pull the trigger.

    Blue......Have a small position in QCOM. Look at a 5 year chart & you will see every year there is a pull back then it retakes the 52 week high subsequently.

    However, it is kinda of a irritating stock to own if you didn't get in on a pull back. Looks interesting to me if I didn't already have a position.

    LOCO's IPO will allow them to expand into a very much different demographic. Occasionally, I will drive 30 miles (round trip) to get their tasty chicken. Excellent Mexican style side dishes with of course homemade tortillas to make great chicken tacos. The green hot sauce is to die for. If you are concerned about calorie in-take, this is a very reasonable choice if you select the right sides.

    LOCO is on my watch list. Don't know fundamentals yet but will be analyzing when available.
