  • Blue Skies Ahead For Pier 1 Imports [View article]
    What is your take on PIR at this point? I find it hard to believe this company is trading at this level. This is one of the few companies that has gone down further since the large drop last week. Its now trading at a forward PE of 10. Any reason you know of that's driving this down?

  • Deutsche Bank finds value in the airline sector [View news story]
    @goldbaum

    Thanks for the response. It was a rather tongue in cheek comment. It is amazing though how many do follow the advice of these people.

    @Biker

    It would also help the oil stocks I bought this morning. :-)

  • Deutsche Bank finds value in the airline sector [View news story]
    Isn't it amazing how far behind these guys are. And to think they get paid to do this. Speaking of that. I've often wondered what a HOLD means exactly. Are they saying hold off buying this stock until it goes up ten points and we switch it to a buy? Are they saying if you own this hold it until it goes down ten points and we switch it to a sell? Probably saying we don't have a clue so hold on until we can figure out what to say next.

    " I certainly do not think the stock is being punished for its no-hedge strategy, and the announced buybacks are HUGE and have as yet done little (nothing?) for the price."

    Its really hard to say that the buybacks have done little or nothing for the stock price. The buybacks could very well be supporting the price at this time.

  • Why Windows 10 Will Power Microsoft's Stock Even Higher [View article]
    Yes. If you fail to upgrade within a year you will have to pay to upgrade. There is no yearly subscription.

  • Airline fares fall sharply in July [View news story]
    @Sean

    That's an excellent example. The fact is over the years the airlines have done this in reverse many times over. One of the airlines would raise ticket prices and wait to see if the others would follow suit. Many times this would not happen and the airline that raised fairs would have to back off. Could this be called collusion? It's a stretch for the DoJ to imply collusion unless they have direct contact between the parties. The charge is absurd.

    I don't think you can compare the actions of Borman at the time (era) they were made to the industry of today. The newer more efficient aircraft will certainly be an advantage to American in the short and long term. Also as the author states the amenities of these newer aircraft will be a big plus. All of that being said in reality American had no choice but to replace their aging fleet. Now is the time to do it.

  • Microsoft reports 75M+ Windows 10 installations, strong app store growth [View news story]
    I've been using W10 for about three weeks now and all is working well. I upgraded from W7 and I am pleased with this OS. There are many features I really like on W10. Looking forward to the mobile upgrade.

  • American Airlines Is Spending Its Extra Cash Wisely [View article]
    @bently

    I guess my point is this is the decision management has made. We will see if it is right or wrong. It is not as though American has not paid down any debt and is piling money into share buybacks. They have paid down 3 billion in the last two years. I might add that all of the airlines are buying back stock at this time. Are they all wrong? Good luck on this crazy day.

    We could argue this all day. They were specifically questioned about this at the last conference call. The fact is Americans management feels that stock buy backs are more beneficial at this point than paying down what they have stated is low interest debt.

    Invest said more tax effective. An increase in share price is not taxed until stock is sold. A dividend is taxed in the current year. Also stock sales are cap gains where dividends are taxed at income. I'm sure you know this.

    @McLarney

    In reality Parker's salary was a tiny percentage of his pay. The move to go to all stock payment was in his words to set his pay according to performance. Since this announcement the stock has actually fallen substantially. The company feels the buybacks are more beneficial to shareholders than paying down low interest debt at this time. This could very well change in the future.
