  • Microsoft: Time To Take Profits [View article]
    IMO, MSFT is a sleeping giant just barely awakened. It is difficult to appreciate just how inert it has really been. It will now make up for more than 10 years of being relatively "dead money" (aside from the dividend). It is a tightly wound spring. After improved sentiment, products, markets, financial engineering, management, dividends, buybacks, acquisitions and maybe spinoffs......I'm betting on $100 in 24 months. Just my opinion, we'll all be surprised how far it goes.

  • Why Activision Blizzard Stock Is A Good Investment Right Now [View article]
    Hi Arie....Re your final statement:
    "All these factors lead me to the conclusion that ATVI stock is a smart investment right now."
    I highly value your articles and opinions. This is not the kind of company I would ordinarily consider as an investment. Since your articles usually end with "a smart LONG TERM investment", and since I consider myself a long-term investor, I'm hesitating. Would you hesitate to give it your "long term" qualification?

  • J.C. Penney Posted Strong Earnings But Fell On Potential Risks [View article]
    My guess is that the lack of action on Friday was more related to option expiration, and both market makers and big players, channeling Jesse Livermore, used a bit of contra trading to set up for what they know is coming.....a big move up. Not necessarily soon, but not far off. A lot of money is going to be made on this move, and if you want to be in on it, you can't wait a couple of quarters to know if it's worth it without giving a lot of it away. Even more likely, with these kinds of numbers, it's not going down, IMO.
    long JCP.

  • Volatile Pacific Biosciences Continues To Make Progress [View article]
    ..It is really a rhetorical question, Hardog. It's hypothetical.
    ...I am certain this will prove to be one of the greatest turning points in the history of knowledge. The point is, that the "ability" to decode the genome is analogous to the discovery of the Rosetta Stone. Or the key to unlock the greatest cryptogram of all time. The solution to an infinite number of biologic puzzles. It's like being handed a near limitless supply of keys. And each key unlocks a door behind which is a treasure. Some tiny, and some beyond imagination. And now the job begins, of finding which key unlocks which door. It will be slow progress at first. But as the technology improves, the momentum of discovery will build. And it will certainly be beyond our wildest dreams. There are other implications. The discoverers are in a race. What will they do with what they find? What could you do with the greatest portfolio of biologic intellectual property? What advantage would you have, to be ahead of as many other "discoverers" as possible? What is the payoff for the ultimate biophysicochemical mining operation?

  • What To Do With AIG After Earnings? [View article]
    ...1. borrow for next to nothing and use every cent of FCF and buy back shares.....will end up being a ROI of a bazillion % in 20 years.
    2. begin a shocker of a program of regularly increasing dividends, i. e. 2.5% per quarter....pull in a huge investor base that won't buy otherwise and get a priceless reputation for shareholder friendliness.
    3. run the business like Warren's not a secret, really, if you went to business school.
    4. watch the application of 1, 2, and 3 turn the common stock into a currency to rival bullion, buy assets on the cheap, out-manuever the competition by virtue of breadth and economy of scale.
    5. win back your good name.

  • Why Gilead Sciences Is Still A Great Investment Opportunity [View article]
    Thank you, Mr. Arie Goren for another example of your incomparable work, and for covering GILD in this article.
    It amazes me what operating cash flow has done since Q4 '13.
    It also amazes me how ignorant of the facts critics of the price of Sovaldi are.
    Not only are they doing patients and the company a disservice, they have shown their superficial level of understanding of the logistics of the disease, and the dynamics of the risks and alternate treatments.
    Reminds me of the guy back in the early 20th century who proposed closing the patent office, because everything that could be invented already was.....
