  • Where Does Micron Go From Here? [View article]
    Analyst day, Hynix up, and relatively ok jobless claims this morning, suggesting the economy is steadily and slowly improving. These articles do also make a difference, many people read the good ones like this.

  • Where Does Micron Go From Here? [View article]
    Agree with your higher sales and EPS than WS, within WS consensus and your own. Due to positive forward guidance for Q2 likely Micron will remain range bound with some upward movement. I view Micron as a sound long-term investment hopefully a dividend will be declared in the near future now that the company seems to be steadier. Also a good short trading stock.

  • Where Does Micron Go From Here? [View article]
    With positive forward guidance, Micron will likely remain range bound with some upward movement prior to next earnings in April. Agree with your pts in your well written article including higher sales and EPS than WS estimates, I see Micron as a long-term investment. It is also a good stock for short-term traders.

  • Currency Risk To Push U.S. And European Stocks Higher [View article]
    With corporate earnings with the exceptions of some, not growing at significant rates as we have seen so far, this Q4 earnings season, companies with positive 2014 earning's guidance with buybacks and/or a dividend are seeing their shares appreciate despite the market overall being flat ie. Comcast (positive forward guidance), and Skyworks solutions (wireless semiconductor with increased guidance for 2014 and Q1).

  • Apple: China Plus Icahn Equals No Brainer Valuation [View article]
    True Apple does have significant potential in mobile payments. Re: after earnings after watching Apple for several years as a long-term shareholder it does tend to depreciate and then move up over the next few weeks. Largely due to a sell off for profit taking via traders/investors buying into earnings, much like when new Apple products (upgrades) are introduced.

  • 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.
