  • Dear Tim Cook, Amazon Just Banned Your Apple TV 4 [View article]
    This great hoo hah seems to me to be a big nothing. I do not watch any TV or even know what the thumb toys are. I also think AAPL is a great company to own and Amazon is not. Yet Amazon is a great company to buy stuff from. So when the gnashing of teeth is over, will anything have changed?

    Pretty near, but not quite there IMHO, to a super buying time. A month or two?

    45Cal, you got it right. If the idiot politicians would shut their traps, temperatures would drop into freezing zone.

    I'm sorry to see COP knuckle under to an obvious fraudulent concept.

  • Apple: 5 Is The Magic Number [View article]
    I know only what I see. Here in the Marbella (SPAIN) Apple store they are way behind in supply of the watches. The attendants tell me they can sell watches all day long. But they don't know when they will receive the next batch. And all these Apple Store guys and girls are standing in line to buy the watch. Plus I see iPads of all varieties being snapped up. I bought one too, for my wife. Long Apple with great faith in the quality of this company. I thought Maurer's article very interesting, though in the LONG run irrelevant, the overriding point being to hold onto this stock regardless of any quarterly numbers, and buy on dips!!!

  • Guggenheim Strategic Opportunities Fund announces $0.1821 distribution [View news story]

    Let's just suppose I wanted to buy this stock one day before the ex dividend date in order to avail myself of the soon to be distributed dividend?

    Of what possible use would be this notice to me, due to my receiving it on July 13?

    If this is supposed to be a useful service to potential investors, please explain how?

  • Main Street Capital Deserves A Perpetual Premium To NAV [View article]
    Hey, I love the article, I love MAIN even more and am long MAIN several times over.

    What really bothers me is that professional writers cannot get their grammar right.

    It bothers me to see this usage repeated throughout the article: "an investor...they..." An investor is singular. They is plural.

    Besides, it's a really easy fix.

    [Yeah, I know, people talk that way. Writers should not write the way people talk, unless it's dialogue.]

  • Fifth Street Finance sells portfolio company [View news story]
    It remains a tough hold. Maybe a tougher buy. I'm waiting for some iota of positive news. Is this it?

    Hey, remember Mt Pinatubo in the Philippines? Almost as much carbon exposure as Gore's house.

    The Jesuits have one if the world's most powerful telescopes in Arizona. What are they looking for up there? The coming of Jesus in a UFO.

    Hey, there are those who say this pope will be the last one. Maybe that's why he is taking this opportunity to say crazy stuff?

    Yes, you are right on target about this huge scam. The last time the earth was this warm the Vikings were adventuring. Sea levels are not rising. Odd weather patterns? Ever look up a watch the planes spewing chem trails? Ever wanted to see some reports out of HAARP? Don't hold your breath. How anyone can say that global warming is the biggest threat to peace is beyond me. Why don't the Pope and Obama ever mention a real green crime: the hacking down and burning of the earth's forests and jungles?
