  • Android May End Up Being More A Fount Of Troubles Than A Fount Of Revenues For Google [View article]
    1K?... Even if Google isn't making any money off the Android phones it just proved that if you copy someone's product and change a few designs with a lower price people will flock to buy it. Yes, they made mistakes with their service and lack of software development for their phone but that's a mistake another competitor (who will surely come) won't make. The article made some great points on the surprising lack of profit that came from Android sales... but as the author said, Apple's trying to oust Google completely from their software even though Google is the most popular search engine in the world and has been around for almost a few decades now. Bad plan in my opinion, reminds me of when Apple tried to become "unique" and decided to have different software from everyone else, we all know how that went.

    Or.... VRNG can work with both companies it isn't "selling out" if you're selling a technology that make both companies' revenues much higher. Bigger slice of a bigger pie.

  • Netflix (NFLX) will face a serious rival in Mexico starting today as Carlos Slim's America Movil launches in the nation. The new streaming service will be offered to consumers a third cheaper than the Netflix version. [View news story]
    Seems like every article on Netflix is directed negatively towards their stock value. Is anyone else regretting buying their stock?

  • Are Electronic Cigarettes A Genuine Threat To Big Tobacco? [View article]
    The market for this product certainly is promising and they're certain to improve in quality. But it's funny though; the marketing scheme is for people to find a better alternative to smoking which is really a pseudo-cig that replaces an addiction. Bottom-line the big tobacco industry has a strong chance of dying and this article does well in supporting some aspects of it happening. I don't see them lasting for very long when all the e-cig firms are doing is stealing market share and not creating any.

  • Market recap: Stocks recovered from a day of D.C. finger-pointing for not making substantive offers to solve the fiscal cliff, as the Dow closed above 13K for the first time in three weeks. Markets have remained remarkably calm despite daily media hype over the cliff, and some see good times ahead for stocks despite the details of any eventual deal. NYSE gainers led losers five to two. [View news story]
    I think the public has realized the media over-exaggerates, best to become informed by reading than by watching news meant to capture your attention.

  • Facebook Audaciously Reveals The Holy Grail And Emerges A Buy [View article]
    Good point I remember MySpace. But think about the loyalty and the amount of time people have put into Facebook... besides Harry Potter it's probably the most common connection amongst men and women who've just entered the work force or are about to. Also, I know it isn't measurable, but I still think it's worth noting the majority of Facebook users a couple of years ago weren't very valuable consumer wise, eg. students usually have close to zero income. As the consumer base matures, which it has been recently, I wouldn't be surprised if even though traffic growth slows, more tailored ads create better numbers of sales for companies who are now looking at a more mature consumer in general. Then it would be reasonable to expect a increase in ad revenue as demand for those slots increase. But yes, the valuation is a bit too optimistic...

  • Paul Van Eeden On Why Gold Is Overvalued [View article]
    Since gold has been consistently more steady (value-wise) than the dollar it's been the responsible brother. So it's expected that in a time when the value of the dollar is questioned, investors such as 'gold bugs' will dedicate more of their assets into what they believe is a strong equivalent to money. But the sheer volume that's traded on a day-to-day basis is a little suspicious. I wish there was some insight or some statistics revealing how much more gold (%-wise) is being traded from 2007-2008 to the present, with some reasonable account for the increase in supply. I'd like to know if some level of trading surplus/deficit is a prevalent indicator for the expectation of the value of the dollar.
