  • WSJ: Amazon opening first physical store [View news story]
    They are departing from the sole thing that made them who they are. Physical stores will just add to costs. They seem to find it hard to make a profit as it is.

  • Apple's Best Interests Re: GT Advanced Technologies [View article]
    I thought the sapphire was not even put into the new iPhones?

    If this is the case then Apple will not care if GTAT go into administration.

  • The Paradigm Is Shifting; Fossil Fuels Are Becoming Fossils [View article]
    Oil & Gas companies did not under perform because they are based around fossil fuels.
    Oil & Gas has had a tough time as of late due to various reasons,
    1) Deepwater Horizon
    2) Conflict between Russia and Ukraine and the economic sanctions provided from this.
    3) Mexico's reluctance to licence out areas for oil exploration and production licences.

    However, 2015 onwards will be a big year for Oil and Gas companies. The Deepwater Horizon case end is in sight. Mexico is licensing out vast areas thought to contain a lot of oil. And...Hopefully there will be an end put to the situation in Ukraine.

  • Making A Case To Be Cautious About Gilead Sciences [View article]
    giving the answer you want to give is not the same as giving the correct one...

    it would be good to see facts that show that Gilead's drug can fit into those country's healthcare budgets.

    yes that may be true but how many people/ governments can afford to pay or subsidise for such an expensive drug?

    It would be crazy if Apple decided to bring this out early 2015, missing this years xmas holidays as this is their biggest time of the year for sales.

  • ASOS: Growth At A Reasonable(Ish) Price [View article]
    Very informative article.

    However, very surprised you didn't mention anything about the rumour that has come out about a potential buyout of Asos by what is believed to be either Ebay or Amazon. This was the cause of the large pop upwards today.

  • Update: More Downtime For Transocean's Fleet [View article]
    RIG is just not receiving any love as of late.


    1) beat or met earnings estimates for the last 5 quarters in a row.
    2) offering a big dividend yield of 7.76% (which was described by the board as sustainable)
    3) cheap P/E ratio of 7.7
    4) positive earnings growth

  • Offshore drillers whacked at Deutsche Bank, several names cut to Sell [View news story]
    Transocean only recently upped their dividend. Why would they increase it only to cut it a couple of months down the line. They can obviously see further into their financial future than deutsche bank.

    As well as this, they are now getting another good income stream from their Shell contract which started in July earning them over $600k a day.

  • Apple buys book recommendation tech, reportedly buying radio app [View news story]
    I think Cook's leadership abilities and sharp thinking are highlighted from the acquisitions since he has been CEO. Even though they have more cash than any company they don't squander it like other companies like Google and Facebook have.

    Its almost as if Cook is buying companies like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle and they are going to fit together seamlessly to create something amazing.

  • The Day I Sold Everything [View article]
    I would never sell everything from looking at a chart and seeing a market top.

    You have to remember that the S&P 500 is only an average price movement of its constituents and does not reflect the health and quality of each company.

    Just like when the market booms, not all companies share prices will boom too. The same thing happens when the averages fall- this does not result in every company share price falling.

    You should just re-evaluate your holdings individually and ask yourself if their individual share prices are a good reflection on the health of their company. If they seem too inflated, then sell some or all of your shares in that particular company and move the money into your other holdings that you believe still maintain good value and growth prospects.

    And...remember cash sitting idle will actually lose you money (money's worth) due to inflation.

  • Apple Earnings Preview: Expectations Are High [View article]
    omdguy- well thats just plain rubbish. Apple can't sell their products to themselves.

    Even in your strange hypothetical situation if Apple sold their goods to their own stores there would be no profits as there would be no movement of goods or money.

    It is quite worrying that you are a shareholder yet you don't understand the basics on how a company operates.
