  • The Contenders To Visa's Payment Crown [View article]
    I am wondering whether PayPal or Google Wallet's ambitions are limited to the online payments or they also want to offer physical cards one day.

  • China Slowdown Will Trigger Black Swan Event [View article]
    "Will"? Is it not more prudent to stay cautious and say "might" trigger a black swan event.

    Guys, where do you get you crystal balls from? :-)

  • It's Bubble Time: A Study Of Peak PE For The S&P 500 [View article]
    Not directly. But indirectly they do - by pushing the interest rates low they allow companies to get cheap funding.

    Otherwise, I agree we are not at the top a cycle. But to say that we are in mid-cycle is a bit ambitious because we can't be sure that the cycle has enough momentum to fully develop. I think it is most likely that it will. But a prolonged pessimism and sell off can undermine the natural development of the cycle.

    The business with estimating profits and revenues is a freaky one... :-) The author has just found that out...

  • When Will The Bubble Burst? [View article]
    There is unfortunately another boom - in credit taking, and generally in risk taking. So even without a burgeoning economy a "bubble" may indeed be in the making. And so there are reasons to be "controllably worried" and take precautions.

  • When Will The Bubble Burst? [View article]
    Agreed, we are far from an overheated cycle. Very, very far.

    But this does not mean that stocks cannot fall down. I am not saying they will. But it's unpredictable when a significant "correction" will occur.

  • Whirlpool Insists U.S. Housing Recovery And Homebuilding Look Fine From Its Perch [View article]
    Dr Duru,

    I agree homebuilders are a reasonable place to be: I have been holding TOL (a tiny position, I must admit) for a couple of months and I expect more upside.

    How about this WHR dip? Did you buy into it? I took a small position. The expected profit growth for WHR for the next two years is quite impressive. So was it a no-brainer to buy when it went below 130s? And even now?

  • McGraw Hill Financial: Very Good Progress [View article]
    Yes, I keep the faith, Chris. As you say in your article in Financial Orbit the credit rating agencies form a oligopoly and thus they are insulated from competition and have strong pricing power.

    I consider these to have durable competitive advantage. Indeed it is not a coincidence that Mr Buffett holds shares in MCO.

    Of course, one cannot expect the same performance as in the last 12 years. But we can expect a steady, robust growth. I am into MHFI for the long term.

  • McGraw Hill Financial: Very Good Progress [View article]
    I have the feeling that the analysts are upping the expectations for earnings growth for 2014 (14.23%) and 2015 (13.26%).

    Correspondingly the share price is reaching all time highs.

    (Long MHFI)

  • Union Pacific Corporation: Perfectly Poised To Grow [View article]
    Why is the split of importance?
    I am also long UNP. But not sure right now, at an all time high, it's an ideal moment to buy/increase.

  • Load Up On SodaStream Especially If It Drops To $30 [View article]
    Nice rebound for SODA today but I am also skeptical for the long term.

    I used to hold shares, I bought the machine with the very positive attitude that I will be using the machine but... no I gave up using the machine and that made me sell the shares too...

  • Visa: Is It The Best Long-Term Stock In The Credit Services Sector? [View article]
    You know, Stan, I am looking at this article again...

    Your title is utterly wrong. You ask the question about the long-term and your reasoning is all about the short-term...

  • The Stock Market Is Down 5% Year To Date, Now What? [View article]
    Indeed this bleep will mean nothing in 10 years, probably even in 6 months.

    After the Friday rally SPY is down only 2.8% from its peak.
