  • Fidelity reportedly working on new low-cost exchange [View news story]
    If anything costs for the little guy are going to go up. Trading commissions for the little guy and institutional accounts are at rock bottom, and the HFT controversy is only designed to either self promote new products, or to get institutions out of the machines .... ie ... Wall St. makes more money..

  • Target warns in filing that data breach could be worse than reported so far [View news story]
    Gregg W. Steinhafel CEO @TGT made $21 million last year... sends his CTO to take the knife, when she probably walked out saying "i told you so"...meanwhile, instead of going public, they just hide the dirt deep in the 10-k like Congress does and hopes nobody actually reads it.... Americans need to wake up.... they want to make Wall Street into villains... but what happens when a CEO of a major retailer knows about a security breach and decides to do nothing and a bad guy walks away with personal information of 70 million customers....? Really he should go to jail.

  • Democrats push forward with call for higher minimum wage [View news story]
    The biggest threat to the economy is deflation ...a higher minimum wage could help offset that as well as the $78 billion the government is spending on Food Stamps ... there will definitely be some losers, and technology will continue to replace unskilled workers, but that's going to happen anyway. We are all playing musical chairs to some extent... whether you're making $100k or $10/hr....

  • Target CIO resigns [View news story]
    CEO Gregg W. Steinhafel should be fired as well. He has no honor, being half dishonest about the original breach, even when security experts had already said it was more widespread, taking the road of denial, before finally being more forthcoming 30 days later as Wall Street requires transparency. How many days did he let customers use their credit cards knowing they had a problem? He also understaffed his customer service team making it impossible for people to cancel their Red Cards for at least a week. Why should shareholders feel he's capable of leading them?

  • Alibaba reportedly opting for U.S. IPO; Yahoo rises [View news story]
    Don't forget, Alibaba has an agreement that it has the right to buy half of YHOO Alibaba stake at the IPO price, which they will most likely definitely execute....this gives Alibaba a little incentive to want to be valued on the lower side.... which is why I believe CEO Jack Ma likes that $100-$150 bln number... Softbank SFTBF has nearly a 40% stake in Alibaba.. and has been weighed down by its Sprint investment... is another one to consider in the Alibaba IPO trade.. ...I think both stocks have upside... in the case of YHOO .. you're basically have a very modest valuation being accounted for its own current business and the April quarter will be important after January's letdown.... .and SFTBF is at least 20% undervalued based on the SOTP analysis alone....

  • Target Shrugs Off The Naysayers To Charge Higher [View article]
    CEO Gregg W. Steinhafel should be fired. He handled the data crisis poorly, and as a previous REDCard holder, we've found that living without Target is the best shopping decision we've made in years. Unfortunately, guys like Steinhafel will get rewarded for simply being mediocre.......

  • Icahn blasts eBay's CEO, board in letter; shares gain [View news story]
    eBay would be better off without Andreessen and Cook on the Board, but I don't believe Paypal would be better off separated from eBay.

  • The Secret Code To The Apple Cash Vault [View article]
    Tim Cook might be a good X and O type guy but he lacks the vision of future technology. For Apple to grow it needs exceptional products and nothing has really changed since Jobs death. Apple is close to being out of touch with younger consumers. Seniors fill the stores....Apple needs it's sexy back and waiting once a year for disappointments is far too long.

  • Best Buy: Turnaround Stock With At Least 40% Rebound Potential [View article]
    The company needs to reduce SG&A a lot faster, currently 10% of sales and overcome a weak product channel in the first half of yr. I think at $1.80 ish in earnings for year upside is limited.

    Someone educate me how a company is worth 40% more after junk earnings, and forming a partnership that has yet to roll out a product?

  • My Valuation: Why Best Buy's Stock Is Worth $49 [View article]
    I agree just about everything is already baked into BBY ... but if they don't show some market share gains on the call it might be a disappointment... certainly looking into the HHG miss BBY should have been a beneficiary as HHG did not match pricing... I haven't looked at the options, but maybe the best play is a straddle going into the conf. call... there's a lot of "hope" needed to be long this stock... negative sales growth, negative eps growth, and an unfavorable product cycle's either going to be worse than expected... or not as bad and the stock i think could be a 5%+ swing in either direction...
