    He isn't right twice a day. The new statement is "Michael Blair is right twice a year, maybe."

  • Apple Sold 13 Million iPhones On Launch Weekend - That Should Frighten Investors [View article]
    MB has been among the very few that have proposed a different angle with AAPL since he started posting on Seeking Alpha. Those very few are bound to be right from time to time, as AAPL declined from 700 to 480, but they have identified themselves with their bearish bias to the point they refuse to see the light as the company always rebounds to all time highs. MB uses a microscope to zoom into a small piece of data, then blows that up into a doomsday thesis, which consistently fails to predict Apple's performance.
    I enjoy reading MB's articles, they are on a par with The Onion.

  • Apple: 13 Million iPhone Sales In Launch Weekend Is Nothing To Fear [View article]
    Like ISIL, Blair gets too much attention. Gayle, during the period that AAPL dropped from $700 to under $400, I layered in and have done quite well. Investing is different than trading.

  • AT&T's Yield Hovers Near 6% [View article]
    70% payout ratio puts it on the safe side. I boost the income by selling calls. T is a staple.

  • What Makes Starbucks Attractive? [View article]
    Your analysis is very good, but when you say that the price is in line with your analysis and conclude with your feelings, it breaks down. Why analyze if the conclusion is subjective? I'm long SBUX.

  • Apple Titan? Or Titanic? [View article]
    Why wait until a rally? With your analysis there won't be a rally. Short the sucker now. Then pray Timmy doesn't run you over with his buybacks.

  • Has Apple Lost Its Malware Advantage? [View article]
    and how does that undo the damage to ios users who've been infected. and how does apple keep track of a malicious developer who opens an account with another name?
    apple needs to tighten up security so that malicious code doesn't make it into the apps or they've lost their advantage in this area

    I'm holding but agree it's dead for a while, so I'm selling calls against some of my shares.

  • Comcast Checkmates Google Wireless Plan [View article]
    jeremy, the whole point in cord cutting is to switch to internet service providerss, such as comcast. one way comcast is toing to stay competitive as an isp is their extensive network of hotspots.
    as far as google, i wouldn't count them out. all they need is a decent tower network and they can get good coverage. they can build, buy out, or lease space.

  • Gilead, Mylan, And J&J: Cheap Compared To Peers [View article]
    Zub, Really? Really? Goldman Sachs has GILD on it's VIP list and you think no one but GILD is buying?
    GILD is buying, in fact they have allocated enough money to buy backs to repurchase 10% of the outstanding stock at $100, which makes it a great level for selling puts. Watch that 100 level get defended by GILD over and over, and others buy as well. Channel traders can pick their own sell spots.

  • Apple Watch Edition: Price - Simple Logic [View article]
    I have complicated medical issues and will be on the waiting list for a sports edition. If this watch truly communicates real time with my medical team, I will not consider this a "timepiece" but a medical alert device and have more than one. I won't always want to wear a casual model, and can see adding one Edition to my collection.
    I just don't want any formaldehyde issues coming back to bite me.

    Bradmeister, you seem to think that the only way to use options is to buy long calls. You need to get out more.
