  • Wall Street Breakfast: Apple's Market Cap Closes Above $700B [View article]
    You can always take it back, I think it's 60 days (?), if it doesn't work but I think it will. You will notice quickly if you are having frequent issues.

    Deer, if you continue to have router issues where coverage is weak & therefore drops, might consider Apple Airport which is a router booster that plugs into router and delivers better wifi coverage. I was having problems everyday and none since I got a $99 Airport 2 years ago.

    My son had a similar issue with Comcast router in Portland. Couldn't watch Netflix, got Airport & no problem since.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Trouble Still Brewing In The Forex Market [View article]
    Blue, do you have a clue? The 1/2 dozen people I know that were on disability had 1 thing in common here in Texas, they were Republican. I suppose you know this if you are from OK. I don't know how to solve the disability issue but to insinuate that they are somehow attached to POTUS is typical right wing hyperbole.

    In terms of your apparent ACA biased point of view, I will tell you that after paying $25k-30k annually for health insurance (for 2) & other medical expenses from 2009-2013 (both are healthy with only 2 meds monthly) I paid $18,500 in 2014 for insurance premiums & had no other medical expenses all the while getting 2 annual physicals with blood work, 2 colonoscopies, mamagram Pap smear, & meds.

    Hey Blue, don't know about you but I have been paying SS & Medicare from about the mid 60's. I DO expect NO more or no less than what I paid for.

    Problem is, there are a bunch of congressmen that STILL want to screw with for what I paid for & that is the reason we apparently disagree. I expect to get what I paid for.

    The south left the Democratic Party purely due to Civil Rights & you know it if you are from the south. Did you think pre 1964 was the right path prior to civil rights?

    Is socialism ensuring all are treated equally?

    Federal exemption for 2015 is $5.43 million. Better than 2008 which was $3.5 million. It also depends on the state as well, so who knows other than the Feds won't get anything until > the above amount.

    In terms of estate taxes, better to die now than any other year before with the exception of 2010 where there was no limit.

    Wyo.... Provide proof that Reid stopped it.

    It would have been or should have been political suicide to reject a like bill. Again, I'm not on top of this issue but I don't believe you are either unless you provide proof. If you can & do, an apology in advance.

    No right wing propaganda is acceptable proof unless it can be validated through a non-political forum.

    I agree it is good news but any congressperson, regardless of majority, could have crafted a like bill prior to 2015. Wonder why this was not done previously.

    I didn't even know this was a political issue as I don't watch or read (other than WSB) political biased stuff. Guess we can make everything political these days. But it is good news nevertheless.

    Required votes from the other party for it to become law so I doubt this was an "only Republican" voted bill.

    Wonder what Cruz & Cornyn did for the families that lost folks from the fertilizer explosion in middle of West & 2 blocks from an elementary school. Not really a question as most know, nothing. In fact they can't sue as the company didn't even have an "umbrella" insurance policy. Any additional regulation to prevent a similar occurrence? Nope, not really.

    LBJ didn't do anything to Social Security. Medicare? I guess you hate that too.

  • Polo Ralph Lauren: After The Crash [View article]
    Actually Polo ready-wear is less expensive than most as the product last much longer than cheaper ones. I watch for their semi-annual sales & go to their outlet for around 40-60% off. Pretty much all I wear (shirts, t-shirts) due to comfort & value. No position but on my watchlist.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For 'Risk On'? [View article]
    Add insurance (p/c) corps too. Off to a very bearish start to 2015. Friday they were very bullish. Health insurance corps have done well for several months if not more.

  • Market Update 2/7 --- Ready To Be Confused ? [View instapost]
    Fear, nice history lesson. Appreciate you gathering the facts & presenting. Good stuff.

    With you on DAL & GILD. Didn't add like you as both are decent sized. You are probably right about BABA but got spooked on some rumors about "singles day" & sold with a small loss. Still on watchlist.

    Only add recently was AIG as insurance corps taking a hit on interest rate issue thus far YTD. Friday's action in the sector was very bullish.

    No plays yet on energy. Right now unable to decipher when I enter. Got a plan but timing still is an issue for me. Most major oil corps appear to be not extremely undervalued based on current price of oil. My thinking is some won't hold current price if not a v recovery. Raised in West Texas & still have friends working in Permian area & they see what is happening on the ground but obviously concerned as well as clueless as where oil goes & for how long.

    Thanks again.

  • Recent Offering Provides Great Opportunity To Buy Verastem Before Significant 2015 Catalysts [View article]
    Incredible research & article. Thanks for sharing.

    I have been playing VSTM when on the low downs for quick trades which netted me a bit of profits. I am not long now but your excellent article certainly allows me to purchase some for a long term position that will not exceed 1% of investable funds. Great job! Just wished I had read your article sooner.

    BTW, reason for my interest in 2012 to current is that VSTM was reported to have best in class stem cell management.

    Thanks for sharing your article.

    IMO, FB has done a good job monetizing it's platform. Very good YoY growth. I don't disagree on AMZN, or TWTR.
