  • I Am Buying The Pullback In Johnson & Johnson For Yield And Break-Up Potential [View article]
    Yep, last qtr report was a bit disappointing. Bought JNJ for less volatility & it went down 7% from purchase rather quickly. All about timing. Not concerned about long term position. Great company. Rode the ABT breakup.

  • ConocoPhillips: Mid-Teen Returns Probable For 2015 [View article]
    Thanks for sharing your article.

    Per article, COP to raise its 2015 production by 2-3%. If all other majors produce more than 2014 then we will still have more oil. Oil went down due to over supply that keeps building even if demand increases.

    Also, what happens when all other countries start fracking? Staying out of sector until issue becomes more clear.

  • Apple Numbers Get Serious [View article]
    Whether you agree with Dana or not he does make a valid point that all investors should be aware of for any stock owned. Perhaps there were statements that you disagree with but understanding his main premise of what is necessary to move the stock in the future is, IMO, paramount. I appreciate him taking the time to provide his thoughts. Long AAPL.

  • 3 Takeaways From AIG's Fourth Quarter, 48% Upside Still Possible [View article]
    Invest.. Thanks for your reply. I was hoping, now after the qtr report, that it would be a kitchen sink qtr. Hope we are right.

  • 3 Takeaways From AIG's Fourth Quarter, 48% Upside Still Possible [View article]
    Thanks for sharing your article.

    Certainly was not a Benmosche type quarter. As a shareholder for 4 years I suspected the change in CEO could bring uncertainty. Any thoughts on the new CEO, Hancock, in terms of his ability to turn the business around?

  • 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.
