  • Why Cisco Is Finally A Buy [View article]
    I originally bought 20 shares @ $20 per share in '94, for $400.00! Today this investment is worth over $20,000.00! CSCO was so far ahead of their competition there was never a #2! Fast Forward to 2013; anytime this stock is under $20 I'm a buyer, their board of directors likes the trading range around $20, so they split the stock forward and repurchase shares and keep it around $20, meanwhile you get a dividend and they could buy Google if they wanted to! an unlikely match? remember Time Warner/ America Online, stranger things have happened!

  • 3 Stocks That Will Boost Your Tech Portfolio This Year [View article]
    Bill Gates former CEO & founder of MSFT came to UCSD & gave a speech & I quote "althought we will no longer be a "growth" company we will still be a great "value" company and will pay dividends to compensate you for holding the stock." This article suggests microsoft is a "top growth pick" with 10 Billion shares outstanding, the growth prospect goes out the window; however, who knows if they split the stock forward 2 for 1 they will have 20 Billion shares outstanding, not likely, so a top growth pick might be an ipo w/ like 500,000 shares outstanding and great revenues and net income with low debt, that way if the stock splits forward 2 for 1 then they have 1Million shares outstanding, then they split forward 2 for 1 then they have 2 million shares outstanding and they "grow" and make more &more $money, then they split the stock forward 2 for 1 and they have 4 million shares outstanding, now that is a "growth company"! General Electric also has 10 billion shares outstanding and also is not considered a "growth" company; nevertheless, a wonderfull "value" company, with good revenues & net income & a well respected business model, it seems when company's reach this threshold of 10 billion shares outstanding, they are no longer considered growers, but more appropriately called "value companies"
