  • Smart Watch Sales In The United States May Reach $14.7 Billion [View article]
    Alex, really enjoy your well thought out & analytical articles on Apple. It does help that I am long AAPL.

    You mention teens as being first adopters for physical measurement wearable type devices. I agree, however, I can easily see baby boomers embracing same devices as well & at a faster pace. A lot of baby boomers are in need of easily attained health related information that is personalized to them specifically. This information & resulting personalized exercise routine will allow them to better delay health issues that occur as one ages. Information is key.

    I am about to enter my 6th decade of life & after many many excellent annual physicals, the most recent checkup indicated that I must begin to be less sedate, per my physician. I began walking, briskly, at a neighborhood park. Although I recognize benefits, (more energetic, more limber, etc) I need more information that would allow me to maximize what I really need to do. At this point I am clueless as to what my heart rate is or should be, how many miles did I walk & in what time, what is & should be my blood pressure, what should my performance be measured with others of same age & weight, what are my goals etc etc. Without information and goals I can easily see one getting bored and stop exercising. With information & goals I can easily see a lot of people of all ages competing with themselves striving to attain health based goals. I see a huge opportunity on the horizon for health based wearables as information provided will measure success.

    Gasoline in Texas peaked in July 2008 at $4.10. I think Obama was a senator at that time.

    I don't call getting fined almost $1b a winner. Only earlier models would have been banned anyway. Certainly a win for AAPL & consumers by default as Apple will continue to out innovate sam.

    Thanks for sharing your article. A lot of folks don't realize that SPLK is viewed by many as a must have for software security as it provides a method to analyze huge amounts of data quickly to provide isolation of & an early warning of suspicious activity.

    Very long SPLK. Buying more if it gets into high $80's.

  • Why Michael Kors Should Continue To Outperform [View article]
    I can tell you that the winter line presented in Feb won huge praise from buyers. The spring line looks very good and add a great winter line, this can move the stock hugely. Their fashion is flawless, certainly not outrageous, for the professional lady. Ready wear, bags, shoes & watches have been coordinated very nicely.

    Very long KORS.

    Thanks for sharing your article!

    I have found over the years that those that base their investments mostly on political leaning tend to under perform. Good luck.

  • Small restaurant chain adds ACA surcharge to diners' checks [View news story]
    Costs going up? Depends. Small businesses under 25 employees, which is majority, actually get tax credits for offering health care insurance. My neighbor's small business, per him, is saving $400 a month over last year's health care costs.

    Increase expense for small business (>25 employees) are those that did not provide insurance previously, however, that part has been delayed until next year.
