  • Apple Will Beat Street Estimates, A Buy Is Justified [View article]
    It matters and Apple's management is highly competent, but in view of the fed taper as well investors are closer than ever looking at forward guidance and fundamentals which includes what are Apple's long-term innovation plans re: new products verses solely innovations to current products important as well but new products will drive earnings to new levels that incremental innovations to current products won't do. Hopefully at the call Tim Cook will provide some colour (for competition purposes he will not go into too much detail) on entirely new product development as he did at Q3, in which he said earnings will continue to be driven by new products in current categories as well as in entirely new categories. The needle did not move as high on Microsoft despite a beat on earnings and revenue as their guidance was inline combined with a closer look at fundamentals by investors. Companies like Delta Airways and Skyworks for example (wireless semiconductor) increased due to positive 2014 forward guidance, more so for Skyworks. Both companies are also very focused on innovation.

  • Good News Not Good Enough: An Early Glance At Post Earnings Performance [View article]
    Great summation all people trading on earnings need to be very cautious. Verizon surprised me rallied much lower, despite relatively good forward guidance. I am watching companies with definitively positive forward Q1 and 2014 guidance such as Skyworks and Delta air.

  • Intel Earnings: Hit Or Miss, It's A Buy [View article]
    DALs recent increased guidance for Q4 confirms Cramer's long-term buy on DAL. As well they expect top line earnings to be 40B in 2014. Also like their commitment to reducing the global carbon footprint of airlines, which they outline in their corporate responsibility reports for shareholders.

  • Our Dynamic Duo: Apple And Facebook [View article]
    I do agree, I understand social media is a place for people to connect, however people inevitably like to interact with live people verses over computers. Originally facebook was new and interesting, likely many people myself included set up an account for this reason. I suspect many adults people including me, use it only for looking people up, messaging, but rarely read the news feeds. Coffee shops will always remain popular, but social media doesn't meet all people's social needs to meet in person.

    Fell to 52.40 (low on Fri. due to analyst downgrade mitigated by another analysts upgrade) Likely the big price swings will continue on Monday.

  • Why You Should Dump Whole Foods Market [View article]
    Some of the prices at Whole Foods are competitive with Safeway, and Krogers as well responsible shoppers like myself appreciate Whole Foods high level of commitment to corporate responsibility, including close to 100% in store recycling, nor do they keep live crabs (which unbelievably some stores still do), stacked on top of each other in tanks, John Mackay specifically has spoken much about why Whole foods does not carry live crustaceans, as it is simply cruel. The PE is high, but as mentioned in your comment, there is substantial growth opportunities for Whole foods, i.e. Europe and of course N.Amer. as overall people are increasingly health conscious providing growth for all grocers in this sector.

  • Why You Should Dump Whole Foods Market [View article]
    I agree, Whole foods produce is fresh, and the shopping experience very positive. Staff are treated very well and this reflects in the overall pleasant customer service. As well the number of responsible shoppers is growing, who appreciate Whole Foods high level of corporate responsibility and innovation ie. their recycling and compost programs, and health education speaker talks in their stores.

  • Why You Should Dump Whole Foods Market [View article]
    All grocery stores have some food samplers and small time shoplifting, they account for these costs on their balance sheets, whether it is Krogers, Safeway or Wholefoods, thus not putting Wholefoods at any disadvantage. As well if a person wishes to sample an item at most grocery stores from food bins staff will give you some in hopes you will buy over the long-term.

  • Southwest Airlines Is A Buy, But Ancillary Fees Could Provide Significant Upside [View article]
    Considering Delta's low PE combined with the president E. Bastian expressing at Invester Day Dec. 11, that he projects EPS to grow 10-15% in 2014, top line revenue to reach 40 billion and profits for 2013 to reach a record 2013, I see Delta as a more secure choice and will hold into earnings. Likely will be a run up to Jan. earnings, due to higher guidance given. Also like Delta's corporate responsibility commitments, from recycling across all aspects of their business to donations to habitat housing. With a dividend, buybacks and growth Delta seems a low risk option for a value and growth investor.

  • Sell Facebook Now, Its Growth Will Soon Be Over [View article]
    Facebook is a momentum stock, far overvalued, above fundamentals already which is evidently obvious. But it obviously has a very good stock promotions team as always in the news, getting attention and creating discussions like this. Good companies don't need to advertise to get attn re: their stock, you can make money daytrading fb if a person can follow the pump and dump strategies associated with the stock promoting. It could go higher but as an investor I would not touch the stock as so many others with sound fundamentals and potential growth to choose from with very little downside risk.
