  • Seadrill Partners Distributable Cash Flow Growth Is Bound To Slow [View article]
    Dear Sir..............

    If SDRL is still above water.

    I see bubbles where there was a rig...going down fast and SDRL had no business maintaining that payout. Too many insiders heading for the
    lifeboats and it is safe to say "Give me mine this quarter and the hell
    with other shareholders".

    A dog with fleas for a long time but oh !!!!!! that payout.Too many
    times the bane of payout fans: let's see........21 % by and oh my.

  • Myriad Genetics' Share Price May Soon Challenge 52-Week High [View article]

    terrific piece on an outfit that is often misunderstood.the institutions love this equity and i for one think the value of myriad is just surfacing.

    when the shorts feel the heat they will run for cover and i can only hope their new awareness is slow in coming.

    just love those shorts taking on water...........

  • 3D Systems: For Experienced Speculators And Momentum Players Only [View article]
    Thank you Afam...................

    The high P:E would not ordinarily beckon a buy from me but with the extraordinary possibilities of 3D printing and more importantly creation, I feel compelled to own both DDD & SSYS.

    The charts do show heavy resistance when either enterprise makes a new high and I have been with DDD since 26.00 a copy so I have felt the angst. I will stay with both, however, as I am a believer that they are first in this amazing (to the writer) technology.

    Tom Durkin .... best to you & all respondents.

  • Quality Of Earnings Issue At Jarden Corp. [View article]
    Thank you for the very thoughtful piece on JAH.

    Sales have moved JAH and sales will continue to push this very effective enterprise higher yet.

    Voodoo book keeping ? We could both take on any listed security
    and beat the tar out of numbers and entries.

    Best to you and please don't be fooled into joining the shorts which will only add to buy volume as they cover.

  • An Almost Risk-Free Way For Annual Return Of 50%+ [View article]
    Thank you mac......

    An interesting piece for me at I am so wary on the daily index effects to the equities I want to hold regardless of market gyrations (especially now with this fiscal cliff overkill). I am always looking for an option to offset the downward drift.

    Quite frankly I feel options in these stocks (puts v call strategies) are simply out of my league as I am not on site where these instruments are traded.Add to that the velocity of those trades and I could be upside down in nano seconds!

    Keep 'em comin' pal as I'm all ears....

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Chimera Is An Unfathomable Piece Of Paper (11/20/12) [View article]
    I do not understand Jim Cramer's comment on CIM as this entity was once part of NLY which Cramer seems to understand without a problem as he will rec NLY every time the name comes up.

    CIM & NLY are identical in their operations as a mortgage purchase REIT with a hefty dividend.

    I am not going to defend Jim Cramer but if anyone had so many equities thrown at them on a buy...sell...or hold basis and they batted .420 I would say that is pretty good hitting...but sit down and analyze and then rec. ? You had better rec better than you hit.

  • LeapFrog Enterprises: Recent Sell-Off Provides An Excellent Entry Point [View article]
    Jason....thank you for a comprehensive piece on LF.

    While LF is priced in spec land, it is anything but with excellent fundamentals and a terrific product line.

    I am long at 6.56 and 7.39. If I were looking for a dividend play I look elsewhere.Show me the price appreciation that LF can provide and I
    am on the right side of this trade which could very well become a long term hold on performance.

  • Goldman Sachs And Morgan Stanley Are Backing The Truck Up For Nokia Shares [View article]

    Thank you for providing the actual sell rec from GS.....

    The behavior of the investment banks is simply reprehensible. Throwing out a sell on NOK and then loading up after the reaction of the rec has hit is nothing new to these mutts @ GS and scores of others.

    I never take the publicized "Conviction Buy"...or any other advice from duplicitous all comes down to your own dd as always.
    I have no position in NOK but I wish the good guys good luck.

  • EMC Corp: 5 Reasons To Buy This Data Storage Company [View article]
    Thank you Matt,

    EMC with the large piece of VMW (I thought it was 70 % but so what) certainly deserves mention and attention in any conversation on storage, however, the pain in holding EMC is the gruesome range it trades in while paying no dividend.

    While I am long EMC, I am often tempted to use those funds elsewhere and return when the double promise of both equities is clearly in view.

    I don't doubt for one moment the growth of storage or that these two enterprises will benefit enormously when the "time" finally arrives...

    In fact VMW is the play for those who fancy themselves as chart experts or market timers...two methods that I steer away from as I
    am neither and have little faith in those who are.

  • 6 Cloud Stocks: Where Are The Buys? [View article]
    The pain that comes with EMC ownership is the waiting for VMW to fire on all cylinders and a lack of any dividend income.

    The trading range is gruesome and while I am long EMC the temptation to move on and re-visit down the road is ever present.

    Frankly I do not know why EMC is mentioned in your Mission Statement.

    I will say this however, your articles are extremely well written and thoughtful for the most part.

    Thank you,

  • Multiple Benefits Create Opportune Time To Buy EMC [View article]
    Thank you VM...

    Indeed on all fronts ! Nice piece as usual.

    A part of buying and holding EMC is,of course, getting 70 % of VMW
    in the bargain.

    Both are for the very patient LTBH investor and with EMC you do not get the angst card of swings in price with VMW.The high-low on VMW could cause sea sickness to those not convinced on your fine treatsie.
