  • Dell (DELL +1.8%) spikes to $13.26 after the FT reports Silver Lake is willing to pay $15/share. Would that be enough to satisfy shareholders who view a $13-$14/share offer as inadequate? (more) Update: The WSJ reports Microsoft's (MSFT) role in the deal remains one of several issues that need to be worked out. However, sources insist the deal remains on track. [View news story]
    when the stock was below 10$ I wonder what you would have said... I would be happy with 15 and I am also a very very minor shareholder with my several 1000's of shares. There is always other opportunities and if I can get 50% profit I will use it on the next opportunity.

    pretty good comparison, not like Intel return on investment in the past has not shown to drive good returns. I would prefer see a compagny with a solid historic invest money than amzn which has still to demontrate it can show profits... I think they will but I would bet the 11B from Intel will drive better returns than the last 11B from AMZN (return on investment, not on their stock...)

  • Microsoft (MSFT) has refreshed its cloud infrastructure software lineup. A service pack for Microsoft's System Center management software allows cloud apps/resources within to be centrally managed, and for different IT hardware resources to be simultaneously delivered - VMware is moving in a similar direction. Also, Microsoft's Azure cloud platform has been updated to support new monitoring and hosting services. Microsoft continues to make Azure's support for hybrid clouds a big selling point as it competes with the likes of Amazon and Salesforce. [View news story]
    I dont think this is a game changer for MSFT... But I like MSFT at this price.

    I wonder the impact of this on salesforce (long term), any opinion?

  • Needs A Higher Share Price To Grow [View article]
    one angry client doesn`t mean anything.

    I am sure they have a good product, otherwise they would not be able to grow as fast...

    The problem is the price of the compagny, at 25B market cap, they are too expensive. And the profitability is way down the road and very risky. Also the competition is intensifying.

    Also their churn rate in the low teen (maybe something like 12 or 13%). it means they have a higher churn on clients that can actually go away. Client have a contract the first year and they won`t leave so the real churn rate should be on client with a right to quit.

    The calcs works like that :

    12.5% / (1/1.35) = 17% attrition rate on clients that can go away.

    This kind of rate seems high for a leader in the field.

    it is very high and means they need to pay a lot to replace them and I am sure they pay a lot of clients to stay with them with many discounts, freebies and other means...

    And I am pretty sure they tried to go on 2-3 years contracts in part to attack an attrition problem.

  • Update On Natural Gas: The Only Predictable Path Right Now [View article]
    I like CEP, 30M cap at 1.25$ per share with a NAV around 8$.

    they are mainly in nat gaz. low net income but easily cover interest with cash flow.

    recently lost a lot on their hedge.
