  • Retail sales tumble in December [View news story]
    A lot of holiday sales appeared to be in November which is not surprising due to several reasons but primarily retailers trying to grab the first holiday $. As an x-owner of retail stores, this trend has been going on for a while & continues to grow due to brick & mortar vs Internet purchases.

  • Retail sales tumble in December [View news story]

    "Ronald Reagan type needed ASAP."

    If you reside in the state of the mascot you depict, you will remember the 1980's as THE worst economic decade for our state since the 1930's. Oil, bank & S&L failures crippled the state until the mid 90's. Additionally, the worst 1 day drop, EVER, in the Dow (Oct 1987) & the highest, since the depression & including to current date, unemployment rate (10.2%).

    No thanks.

  • Why I Like General Electric [View article]
    Nice piece. Thanks for sharing & agree with your assessment.

    SYF, since IPO, has outperformed & GE owns close to 80%. I believe plans are to exit position late this year & return some to shareholders.

  • Apple's App Store Will Surprise To The Upside [View article]
    AAPL in the first part of Jan 2014 was soft before taking off. I think patience will be rewarded.

  • AIG reportedly selling 40-year paper [View news story]
    AIG doubled 2012-2013 so if your a long term holder you are still ahead of the game assuming you were a share holder Jan 1, 2012. If you are a trader, your right it has been a quagmire for the last 12 months. I'm staying long as I feel AIG will outperform S&P in 2015.

  • Is The Fed Buying Stocks? [View article]
    Sorry Larry, don't believe stock buybacks are that large in scale & they have to have assets for collateral. Not buying your theme at all. Sure there will be a correction & you will be able to say your right, but when will it be? It's been a great 6 years & I hope you have been a part of the party.

  • The Federal Gas Tax Should Be Eliminated [View article]
    Agree with author on eliminating gas tax as money collected doesn't necessarily go to road infrastructure.

    During the election last year our governor elect said he would repair our roads without raising taxes or tolls by simply using the taxes collected to be used for what the tax was initially enacted to do.

    The city in which I reside, increased sales tax by 1/2 cent 5 years ago for road repair & I have not noticed any improvements in city roads.

  • Is The Fed Buying Stocks? [View article]
    If all this behind the scenes conspiracy themes are occurring, why is the S&P P/E just a bit higher than historical valuation. Are the Feds also pumping profits into corps?

    STE (just researched) is definitely in a great area of infection management as it is a very high priority for facilities that perform surgical procedures. Put on watchlist. Thanks for responding. I also have THC & HCA on watchlist.
