  • BlackBerry's Current Asset Management Bodes Well For The Future [View article]
    I'm missing something here, GE; the standard of your English is notably better than Marcap's, and as for him dealing with "facts", that may be true if you've no objection to the way he displaces them, temporarily! Personally, I'd prefer comments that stick to today's (or at least recent) facts, and not those which pertained, typically, eighteen months ago...

  • Numbers Aside, Why You Should Be Long Facebook [View article]
    So why does this article price FB at 20$? Bit of a time warp, methinks!

  • BlackBerry Makes Splash With Proposed HealthCare Services Platform In India [View article]
    No kidding? Let's face it, to most Indians, "health care" still involves a visit to their equivalent of a witch doctor, but with mobile becoming available to just about everyone there, growth is going to be huge, and will continue for a very long time! We see now why Chen is having passport manufactured in house; this could succeed in a way Z 10 was expected to (but failed). Time to go long...

  • BlackBerry: Passport's Rave Reviews Cause Short Squeeze [View article]
    At this point, just about everything is a better bet than IBM; Rometty may think she knows where she's going, but somebody has uncoupled the steering column!

  • Bank Of America Has Been Dead Money For 20 Years: Did They Fire The Right People? [View article]
    "straights"? It looks decidedly twisted to me!

    My mam's trifles had sherry in them, not beer! But seriously; yes content is important, and one can forgive an author who may not be a native English speaker, but this article leaves the impression that it was thrown together in a hurry, without a thought to tidying it up.

  • Bank Of America Has Been Dead Money For 20 Years: Did They Fire The Right People? [View article]
    Has he even tried? The only politician I ever heard of, who realised the current method of allocating pay, is a system just begging to be abused, was France's president De Gaulle; when he tried to impose a five times a production workers salary ( a practical and amply generous measure, to my mind) on France's P.D.Gs, he got booted out of office, by other politicians demonstrating where their true loyalty lies (and probably always will)! If a company prospers, shouldn't all who contributed to it, also prosper, and in equal measure? Back in the fifties and sixties, most C.E.Os managed well enough on such a multiple,so what has changed, to justify today's 200+X, in the U.S?

    I'm not offended, Don, and frankly, I don't know for sure what I'd do in your position, but I believe I'd err on the side of responding only in a way that adds to the debate... unless, of course I got paid for my own comments. Will you answer that question?

    Especially when taking into account the "help" he got from most elected Republicans! No matter, they'll still blame him for any bad outcomes, and convince themselves they'll put it right, using the same methods that didn't work last time...

    Fairly informative, author, but I would have preferred less tortured English: "optimizes the best ads possible"? I should think you also meant "perpetuated", and not "perpetrated", yes?

    Who? Never mind, as you've cleared up another point, EN; those myriad lotions you chose from work, no better than slightly salted tap water. I'm sorry your contact lenses became irritated; it must be awful for them!

    Ah, that explains it, EN; I've never really understood what "prestige" means, which may impact on why I can't answer AH's question. It seems we are looking at two (or more?) distinct ways of thinking about things.

    Well, actually, you are just exchanging money with writers, which has no effect of FB whatsoever, but well done, anyway!

    Not if you made a profit, Z! So you might have made more? That's true for hundreds of other stocks, but who loses sleep over them?
