  • 6 High-Yielding Mega-Cap Stocks [View article]
    Thanks for sharing your article.

    ABBV looks more than fully valued to me at an almost 30 p/e while rev growth, imo doesn't justify. Hep C drug needs to outperform big time.

  • Apple gains following target hikes [View news story]
    I'm getting 2 new iPhones this month. I think there are a lot of folks like me that wait until you can walk in the store & get it without ordering.

  • France gets larger discount on Sovaldi than its neighbors [View news story]
    Mineman is referring to the prescription law enacted in mid 2000's & in fact his statement is correct. You are referring to ACA & imo, your opinion is just that, your opinion, although the stats of voting you state are correct.

  • Arizona sues GM for $3B over recalls [View news story]
    Remember that gov't can sue anyone, anytime & anywhere. So can corps, but in the last 20 years it has become more & more difficult for individuals (that are not wealthy) to sue corps all the while still having the 7th amendment. Pay attention to not only the Feds, but state & local laws as well.

  • Google Is Undervalued And Should Be Bought [View article]
    GOOG will even up with GOOGL on April 2, 2015. After that, they will decouple. In my IRA, I went GOOG as at the time there was a $11 difference. Will probably replace with GOOGL after April 2.

  • Apple Pay Won't Drive Much Direct Revenue, But It Could Boost iPhone Loyalty [View article]

    Actually it will be the merchant that benefits (not the other way as you state) as Oct 1, 2015 they will become responsible for fraudulaent credit card use if they are not on a platform that accepts, as 1 requirement, NFC capable checkout device.

    Currently, & I assume going forward, merchants typically lease a device from a service credit card processing company so additional dollars for adopting the new device will be very minimal if any at all.

  • Has Google Glass Shattered Already? [View article]
    Although I much prefer AAPL over GOOG I am long both. I believe GOOG will perform better in 2015 (vs 2014). Glass even though an apparent loser doesn't mean everything else will be a loser going forward. Could 2015 be the year of YouTube breakout?

    Bill, thanks for your article. Appreciate you sharing your thoughts.

  • The Fall In Oil Bears Watching Closely [View article]
    Much like retail, energy has a seasonal cycle. Sept-Dec is the bear part of the cycle while Jan-August is the bull portion. The last bull cycle began in Feb of this year & went through mid July. Got my list of energy stocks to purchase however, I am not basing it on price alerts as who knows how low oil will go in the next 2 months.

    Additionally, Q2 (calendar) production rate for the sector was mostly a miss. Providing a clue to what now has occurred.

    Be careful with smaller caps in the sector. Access to capital is drying up. One needs to only recall oil prices & results for energy corps from 1985-2000 to be cautious.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Global Banks Fined $3.4B In Forex Probe [View article]
    Dusty... Sounds about right in terms of Texas being in the highest 8 of all state rates. I know NJ has higher rates but the thing in Texas, they value, depends on city I suppose, at FULL market value where 15 years ago it was about 2/3 value. Not sure if other states have done that or not. My property taxes for the home I built in 1998 to current has doubled while market value has increased 30%.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Global Banks Fined $3.4B In Forex Probe [View article]
    As an ACA policyholder I can tell you that I have seen a great improvement in the quality of care where I reside now that hospitals, procedural clinics, etc will not get paid if they screw up.

    I had 3 calls, 1 before, 2 after a colonoscopy to ensure all was ok. Plus a follow-up survey of the clinic & their practices for my procedure. The surveys are available to the public that rank each site based on all survey rankings to provide transparency of practices to those that are shopping for services.

    Yesterday my BCBS case manager called to see how things were & if I had any issues. Of course they want me to renew my policy for 2015 but kinda a nice gesture that I never experienced before.

    I'm sure many will not believe it but patient costs are coming down, certainly for me, due to ACA. Just a personal experience that runs contrary to what many have heard.

    Over... May soon be 3 if Oakland Raiders move to San Antonio. My guess, it won't happen as Jerry will have an issue with it as there are a lot of Cowboy fans in S.A.
