  • Intel And Market Action [View article]
    Russ,
    Really enjoy your articles. Some may call you a bull, all I know is that I have made money by following your recommendations. I was long INTC, but I bought some Jan 15 calls because of your bullishness. What calls would you recommend at this time and at what strike price?

    Thanks.

  • Intel And On-Chip Memory [View article]
    Russ,
    As always, thanks for forcing me to think of other possibilities with Intel.

    I bought 700 contracts of Jan 15 $32 calls at 31 cents. Unfortunately sold 300 contracts at 84 cents. But due to your advice still have 400 contracts in hand. Planning on holding these calls until the 3Q results. What would you suggest?

    Thanks for those great articles. You have made more money for your readers then all the naysayers combines. I think I'll continue to heed your recommendations.

  • Microsoft Strengthens Its Hardware Vertical With Surface 3 Launch [View article]
    I believe surface should have had a 3G/4G as well as a wifi capability. Secondly, I would hope they raise the battery life to 12 hrs minimum

  • Microsoft ups Windows mobile reach; Nokia launches Android phones [View news story]
    I am personally positive on the Nokia Android. I believe this move has Microsofts blessing and possibly encouragement. I think msft is being aggressive on the mobile front and I applaud them for taking on google where it hurts, their platform strategy. By using the msft cloud, skype and here maps google is put in a position of minimizing any financial gains from Nokia android sales. I like msft being aggressive. Additionally, by producing a low priced android msft and nok are taking on the low priced producers of handsets.

    Long msft and nok

    Daro,
    Agree with the comments above. Accusing Buffett of being self serving is throwing mud on someone who has given away or promised to give almost all his fortune to charitable causes.

    Disingenuous is a rather harsh term to describe Buffett in my opinion as well.

    Gratian,
    ''let's ship overseas all Marxist progressive socialists to all those countries they like better than there own homeland.''

    Don't use that nationalistic nonsensical comments as I spent quite a few years as a flight officer in USN. That is one of the reason that I dislike the Tea Party types, they accuse everyone they disagree with shipping them out. What makes you more of an American so that you can ''SHIP overseas'' that you think are not well suited here?

    Anyone whose solution to a different point of view is to ship them out of the country can only be a fascist. But of course that is the problem with the Tea Party types, isnt it?? Do I smell a bit of fascism in your reply.? I am content in my country, but if you are so aggrieved you may wish to try a low tax country like Saudi Arabia? How about Kuwait? Try it you may love it.

    Let me say that the motivating factor to succeed for me in my career was the race itself, not the thing called money. Just as we count goals, touchdowns and baskets, money is the scorecard of the business life. The beauty is in making the money so that you can share it.

    Enough said.

    ''Yes we have an agreement, eliminate the progressive tax system and go to a federal sales tax, plus force the politicians to balance the budget each year''

    No, we dont have anywhere close to an agreement. Why shouldn't those making millions and billions pay a higher tax rate than someone working at a restaurant, supermarket or sales outlet making minimum wage or little over minimum wage?

    By the way, you can start to balance the budget by getting rid of deductions for venture capitalists, corporate farmers, oil interests. Also, how about capping the interest deduction on a home to half million with no deduction for anything above that? How about a reduction in the military budget? Why do we need a military budget greater than the next ten countries combines?

    Have you ever travelled or lived in Scandinavian countries, Switzerland or Germany, etc ??? I lived in Venezuela and traveled to Brazil. I think we need to compare USA to western Europe, it would be a more objective evaluation.

    Bret,
    It is a really sad day when a movement (which i am not a part of in any way, shape or form) that preaches budget responsibility and personal accountability is tarred as 'radical'.

    Come on now, lets not go over the edge. Tea Party is more than a balance the budget movement. Everything from abortion to immigration to renouncing the debt our nation has accumulated is questions.

    I was and am a Republican, but have voted for Democrats because I feel the party has become a tool of the Tea Party. I find the tea party types to be radicals that care more about destruction than building.

    I am fortunate that this country has allowed me the opportunity to have a decent net worth so that I could retire in my early 50s. I feel I should pay at a higher tax rate than someone making 20k or 50k. I think it is unacceptable to have those making millions pay lower tax rates. It is the tax rate that matters, not the amount of taxes paid.

    I dont like concentrated wealth as I feel all children should get as close to equality as possible. That is the beauty of this nation, give a fair chance to all. How do you give a fair chance when Tea Party is trying to destroy the system that nourishes and educates kids?

    Lets stick to investing issues as this disagreement can go on forever.

    I am glad we agree that someone making billions should be paying a little more % in taxes than one making 200k.

    I'll go along with you on getting rid of deductions, rather than raising taxes. That includes deductions and support to oil, farmers, interest on principal residence, you name it....

    I think first deductions that should be suspended is the one benefiting the Venture Capitals like Mr. Romney.

    Do we have an agreement?

    p.s. Thanks always for your well written articles.

    Bret,
    Please tell me if you think it right that a person making billions should be paying a lower tax % than one making 200k?

    I am a former big8 cpa and took a few tax courses and understand the what you are saying. But I ask a simple question and would like a simple answer.

    ''Buffett should address that by giving away his fortune within the country where he made it instead of dispersing it almost entirely overseas.'' I think if you dig you will find that the man is helping educational needs in USA as well as throughout the world. Even if he did not, he is helping the needy all throughout the world. That is good enough for me. We should all be pleased that someone is helping those in need rather than passing all their wealth to their children.

    Bret,
    While I enjoy your articles I have a problem with your accusation. Regardless of how much his secretary makes each year Warren Buffett, a man whom I admire, makes at least thousands of times more income each year. He is right on the money when he brings out the inequality in the tax system.

    There is nothing disingenuous about his statement. Take his remarks figuratively and he is telling it like it is. Why should a person making billions of dollars each year pay less % in taxes than a secretary, even one making 200k.

    Have a heart.

  • Intel: Upside Potential [View article]
    Russ,
    Your bullishness is contagious. Whenever I even think of reducing my aggressive position I go ahead and read one of your articles. This was an excellent recap for Intel.

    Thanks
