  • Wall Street Breakfast: Netflix In Talks To Enter China - Reports [View article]
    Elizabeth Warren was born in Oklahoma as was my wife. I'm not certain if Warren is or isn't part Native American but being born in Oklahoma she has much better odds of mixed ethnicity.

    My wife's grandfather was a blue eyed Cherokee with very dark skin, long jet black hair & unique blue colored eyes. He was married to a brown eyed Caucasian. They had 7 children all of which had blue eyes, high cheekbones and very Caucasian coloring & features (except high cheekbones). None looked as if they were 1/2 Native American nor did their children's children. They did all have blue eyes as did my sons & I have brown eyes which is typically dominate over blue.

    Google "blue eyed Cherokees".

  • Whole Foods Market -10% after FQ2 comp disappoints [View news story]
    I like Hain at $55 if it gets there. I'm with you on grocery stores although I do wish I had invested in Kroger 2 years ago. Love Sprouts but my dislike of the volitilty makes me sell lower than the price I bought. I just go with suppliers as healthy stuff is absolutely huge with millennials (and others).

    iPads had a blowout qtr during the holidays of 2013. IPADs will have a blowout qtr during the holidays 2015 (this year). On the S cycle which is smart to do it that way.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Where's The Value These Days? [View article]
    gggl.... I only give you FACTS. Something that you don't subscribe too. You can continue with you daily politico bs which is mostly misleading.

    You might want to do a little research on Depletion Allowances rather than jumping on your politically fueled anger. I have received oil/gas royalties (70's-90's) & I understand associated taxes. Do you? Guess what, my non royalty related income tax was less due to the tax.

    What does iphone have to do with your lack of tax knowledge?

  • General Motors slides 3.1% on earning miss [View news story]
    Agree Bret.... F is not a trading stock for me based on 1) entry price & 2) my perception of good growth in the future.

    I think oil sector softness will also impact F-150 sales. Very, very popular in oil fields.

    Not very optimistic in the short term (Q1 report).

    gggl..... Depletion Allowance reduces taxes on royalties even while all other expenses to drill & maintain are treated as typical expenses.

  • Apple Should Invest In Original Filmed Content [View article]
    Moxi... You are using old data. I'm using most current. If you use most current qtrly reports, your growth statement is misleading to those that may not know. Quit cherry picking dates & use current data like most investors rely on.

  • Apple Should Invest In Original Filmed Content [View article]
    Moxi.... I see you are cherry picking dates while I use most current information. My info is correct & can easily be verified. Your info may be correct, not sure & don't care, if you compare 2 year old data.

  • Apple Should Invest In Original Filmed Content [View article]
    Moxi.....Me too. Last qtr revs are below vs prior years qtr

    AAPL $ 74.599b vs 57.594b (prior year qtr) = 29.5% growth

    GOOG $ $ 18.103b vs 15.707b (prior year qtr) = 15.2% growth

    Therefore, AAPL's rev growth was almost twice that of GOOG. Yes, GOOG's growth has slowed & APPL's has accelerated based on most recent data available.

    Get your facts straight.

    Long both.

    Moxi... Incorrect on several, if not many, statements. Apple's revenue growth was up 29.5% y/y, actually more than Google's last report.

    I can stream anything that's available on the net from my iPad, iphone, Mac to TV via Apple TV.

    Your assumption for 4k support is just that, an assumption as you nor I know.

    I'm not implying AAPL should enter content industry but simply pointing out that you have misleading info in your post.

  • American International Group: Finally On The Way To New 52-Week Highs? [View article]
    I expect a good beat this qtr as its Hancock's 2nd report. The first one was a kitchen sink type deal & it appears most knew it as the stock reversed quickly & is setting new post 2008 highs.

    Good luck to all.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Netflix Shares Hit All-Time High On Subscriber Growth [View article]
    Deer... Same issue in Texas with Perry's initiative. New governor now & to be defunded. Wasteful seems to be concensus of new regime. Others have a bit tougher language from what I read.
