  • Investors Can't Believe The Apple Hype [View article]
    Solid article. Very worthwhile. I just reluctantly sold 50% of my APPL holdings. I think it is the best stock out there. But, given Ukraine, ISIS, Gaza, Ebola,illegal immigration, ad nauseam, I fear the USA is in for a tough foreseeable future. I have absolutely zippo confidence in Obama's domestic and foreign policies, his political sensitivities, e.g. playing golf through beheadings, or, his most basic ability as leader. The proof is in the pudding and a sorry pudding it is.

    I hope I am wrong, but, I have never seen a more threatening global environment, so, I am going to cash with almost my entire equity portfolio.

  • Apple And American Express - A Match Made In Heaven [View article]
    If you communicated more clearly, this dialog would never have happened in the first place. I yield to your communication capability.

    Take a remedial reading, ie, comprehension, class. The context is retailers not consumers. There are millions of retailers worldwide happy to accept Amex.

    "Hardly any businesses accept American Express cards'". Really?
    How about millions of them worldwide, including every travel and hospitality-related business.
    Yes, Amex gets a higher fee from retailers so some choose to exclude it, but, others see the value in the Amex customer demographic profile and pay a bit more.

    Your unsubstantiated opinion is "pittyful".

  • Apple's New Apps Will Ensure Healthy Returns For Investors [View article]
    Two of your seven points may have been "...kissing Wall Streets (sic) Pundits (sic)."

    And, therefore, there is no logic behind your " Therefore, he cannot lead Apple in the future." Emotion, yes.

  • New York Community Bancorp: Quality Assets, High Efficiency And Generous Dividend Add To Upside [View article]
    Sorry to be late with this. I am a multi- year holder for the dividend. Dividend ratio can not be maintained IMO. So, I am dumping NYCB and buying T, etc. to get a somewhat similar % with less worry.

  • Why Buying Beats Audio Is A Good Deal For Apple [View article]
    Paying more than 3X the category volume is a strange ratio for me. I could see 3X sales, but 3X the entire industry?
    I see deep doo-doo all over this one.

  • Apple's Curious Acquisition [View article]
    If this deal goes through, there better be a rabbit in the hat because I can't see any rationale for it. I only see a cheapening of Apple's image.

  • Apple In The Dow? [View article]
    Will you please tell me how inclusion in the Dow will do anything for me besides
    feeling that I own a more prestigious stock?

  • I'm Buying 4.3% Yielding Consolidated Edison [View article]
    To the extent NYC is the major revenue source under a socialist new mayor, I would avoid CE as well as any other NYC driven stocks and bonds. Storm clouds ahead!

  • Hudson City Bancorp (HCBK -1.5%) slides post-earnings after slashing its quarterly dividend by 50% to $0.04/share amid a continuing interest margin squeeze. NIM fell to 1.78% from 1.97% in Q4, and 2.15% a year ago. The company provided no update on regulatory approval for its still-in-limbo merger with M&T Bank (MTB). [View news story]
    I foolishly followed Cramer's propaganda /advice on this. One of the worst investment decisions of my life. HCBK barks, wags its tail and pees on the rug.

  • CenturyLink: How A 7% Yielder Hit Into A Triple Play [View article]
    Very solid article. And, some very astute comments. I bought @$33.90. Will dump ASAP on the premise that when I can't understand management strategy I have no reason to own it.
