  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    "In Texas, 25 year-olds could stay on their parents plans way before "UCA". I think that was true for almost the whole country. I await the arrows."

    In Texas, only if the child is in college or was a claimed dependent on your tax filing. Which many did not qualify at age 25. Had a son graduate college at age 22, prior to ACA, and he had to get insurance elsewhere.

    A huge benefit for the 5% that purchase individual policies is that insurance companies can no longer use those folks to subsidize all other non-individual based health care policies.

    My wife & I have an ACA health plan and are quite pleased with premium cost, coverage & enhanced efficiency brought on by the new healthcare law. There is a lot of nonsense b.s. out there from the group that wants to repeal.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - The Enemies Are The Stock Renters (3/24/14) [View article]
    Cramer likes whatever stock is up. In some cases he dislikes a stock in the morning and then likes it in the afternoon after he "rationalizes" it.

    Are renters called traders? A new word from Cramer.

  • A Bubble Burst? Momentum Names Are Falling Hard [View article]
    Thanks for article Bill, always a good read.

    IMO, stay the course if you are confident in your holdings. I'm getting beat up in SPLK, NPSP & FB but still way ahead & all STILL have a great future.

    Actually started buying a couple stocks on my watchlist that hit my buy price. Good luck to all.

  • Report: Apple holding music service talks, mulling Android iTunes app [View news story]
    Spotify appears to appeal to those that are music aficionados (mostly young). My son too uses Spotify & when he plays it I am not impressed with selections available and would rather listen to artist mixes like provided in Pandora or iTunes Radio. I do believe Spotify has a market, just not for me at current stage of life.

  • CIRP: iPad upgrade cycles longer than iPhone cycles [View news story]
    Upgrade iPhone as soon as I can w/o penalty, usually 22 months. Had original (2010) iPad & got mini in 2012 which I will most likely upgrade this year, iMac don't know as we don't hardly use it due to mini use. I have purchased mini's as gifts for sons & their wives & now grandchildren get used ones from their parents. 8 mini's since 2012, a great device for our needs.

  • Michael Kors: A Safe Bet For Long-Term Profit [View article]
    How did this get past editing @ SA? KORS, since it's IPO 2.5 years ago is on of the best performing stocks in retail. Is this suppose to be a joke? As a shareholder, I'm not laughing.

    "and reducing his estate tax liability."

    Are you advocating he should not have a tax deduction?

    Wyo..... Never heard Bush, Romney or Cheney say anything about what you were discussing but I did hear what Buffet said & explained... Thus my response to your inaccurate comment. Make it political if you want.

    Buffet's position is to change the tax law so carried interest, etc. is taxed on a progressive scale rather than being capped @ the current 15% maximum not that he would not take advantage of current tax law.

    Btw, he is donating a lot of after tax bucks to Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

    Yep, let's blame the students especially since gas was orderless at the time. As fracguy pointed out, an additive was added to allow one to be warned via the smell shortly after the accident. Only warning was students & adults were complaining of headaches days prior to the explosion.

    Adding more in low $90's. Winter line for '14 was applauded by ALL. Spring line now is very strong. Confusing initiation from my perspective.
