  • 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.

  • Apple Is Thinking Longer Than Mr. Market - Margins And Average Selling Prices Will Reverse Trend [View article]
    Savy, competent and a genuinely kind person. As a long-term apple shareholder I respect and support Tim's commencement of an Apple charitable giving program a reflection of his own believes taken from Kennedy's words he often quotes in interviews, "To whom alot is given much is expected." An increasing great dividend and increased charitable giving whether to a range of important causes from people or other animals, all are very possible should Apple's earnings momentum increase with higher iphone/ipad sales and new products/services on route, of which are hopefully popular in the marketplace. Charitable giving is also positive for Apple's brand and sales.

  • Apple Is Thinking Longer Than Mr. Market - Margins And Average Selling Prices Will Reverse Trend [View article]
    I appreciate the article and numbers re: ipad supply and demands, sounds promising. Higher ipad sales and of course iphones will help Apple's EPS which last quarter did fall, by 4.2% from 8.67 EPS Q4 2012 to 8. 26 EPS Q4 2013, revenue increased while profit fell. However the positive early indicators re: iphone/ipad sales (new numbers out of Japan today also indicate high iphone sales with Japanese consumers) suggest Apple could report in the higher range of their 2014 Q1 earnings guidance, or above.

    We will all know come Jan 23rd. If upsides looks good throughout the holiday, along with China mobile this month there will be a run-up to earnings for certain. As a long-term shareholder I am looking forward to more ipad/iphone numbers after this large shopping weekend. As a long-term shareholder I do as you indicate do see Tim as competent. He is also thinking longer term re: increased R&D spending/innovation and new product/service development, which is fundamental for further earnings momentum. Higher ipad sales (often overlooked compared to iphones) will help earnings growth, which will give investors increased confidence in Apple.

    Samsung and Apple both have valuable markets and will continue to do well, they are large cap tech companies. Competition is essential for improving over all products, spurring new R&D, new service/product development, fair pricing in the market place monopolies do not serve the best interests of any consumers. Apple products are also popular as they are reliable, well made and durable, for busy people like myself I know my iphone is dependable and will work when I need it. Reliability is a top priority for busy people which includes most individuals.

    Thoughtful point, thank-you. I am certain Tim Cook would whole heartedly concur with your sentiment as he has several times quoted Kennedy, "To those whom much is given much is expected," in interviews. He also commenced a charitable giving program at Apple at the start of his tenure, which as a long-term shareholder I applaud along with his increasingly evident business competence. As someone who donates some of my capital gains to others in need (including animals like raccoons and orphaned bear cubs at wildlife rehab centres in British Columbia) I appreciate/understand your comment. Christmas is also a perfect time to volunteer with a range of organizations to help others in need.

  • Pigs Get Slaughtered [View article]
    Until any decisions are made regarding allocation of available slots made available from the American-US Airways consolidation DAL will likely stay around 28. Likely newly available gates will go to Jetblue and other smaller airlines but Delta's argument is strong, and the company has clearly been lobbying US congress as four members on Friday expressed DAL and other midsized airlines should be able to bid for the newly available slots. Gov't reps ideally based on character and integrity ought to be be looking out for the best interests of the public, and many do however this sudden support for DAL ect.. looks like the result of effective DAL lobbying. Hence DAL stock went up on Fri. to 28.70 approx. DAL is likely (always risk with stocks do your research) a good daytrading opportunity in the meantime until the Justice Dept. makes a decision re: who can bid on slots. DAL is ranging btwn 27.70 approx to 28.70 in the meantime.

    However at the time when you sold at 32, you did know how much higher Disney would go. There are always an abundance of opportunities on the stock market for people who do their research and due diligence. Be happy with your $13,000 solid profit, and look for other undervalued opportunities. I have sold many times for a fair profit verse waiting when there was a chance of a stock moving down (I minimize risk at all times consistently). By taking a bearish perspective one gains more in the long run as one miss meaning holding a stock too long and it moves far below your buying price could undermine an investor/traders entire portfolio. I look at cumulative gains small profits build up fairly quickly however I also trade/invest regularly, with a strategy of avoiding losses at all times which has worked for myself. See the cup half full in life it will add to your happiness as well in all arenas of life.

  • Apple: Owner Earnings, Owner Earnings Yield And Payback Years [View article]
    Thank-you for your article, as a long-term Apple investor for income and potential growth reasons (Tim Cook et al. will likely successfully deliver new products and services including expanding ibeacon, how the market responds to their new products is the risk as it is in all companies, hence growth investing is slightly risker than income investing of course, but has a higher yield). I have been concerned re: earnings growth, however Apple's increased R&D/innovation is positive re: potential increased earnings momentum. A well run company with a high yield growing dividend, earnings momentum will attract more investors. Increased environmental standards under Cook is a positive as well, in view of the triple bottom line.

  • Insiders Are Selling Synnex [View article]
    HIgh PE, high book value per share, yes a short, however it is a well run company whose stock has risen to high, not surprised insiders are selling, prior to the stock reaching a more accurate instrinsic value. Watch for dips then perhaps buy. Good chart comparing Synnex ratios to others in it's sector, thank-you.
