  • Yelp: Large Premium For Elusive Profits [View article]
    Your use of the graphs are excellent. I can scan through the graphs and I don't even have to read the article; but of course I do.

    Another great, simple-to-understand analysis.

    My friend is a lady with a pretty face and a nice figure. She will never have to buy herself dinner until the day she dies.

    Sigh...... Nature at work, unfortunately. If I had the discipline to stay away from women, I would have been retired by now, with millions in the bank. I am not kidding.

    Women. cost. money. always.

    Stockdunn,

    It's really simple,

    Take the money Americans give to the Iraqis and Afghanis each year for middle east infrastructure projects and keep it at home.

    When you think about it, even for a few seconds, $4 Trillion for a war to capture a previously trained allied fighter - Bin Laden - is not money well spent.

  • OPEC has no target price [View news story]
    Easiest way for governments around the world and politicians alike to tackle this issue of dropping oil prices is print currency and bankrupt the population they control. Then take the money derived from inflationary action and exit politics. Retire into a life of consulting. Send your family overseas to invest in starting a new life - new house, best university, new cars, clothing and shopping trips etc.

    Very popular with the Chinese immigrants in Toronto. Visit sometime and you will see. These immigrants from China never come from families that started the Chinese version of McDonalds or the Chinese version of Apple, for such companies in China rarely develop. The Chinese money brought into Canada (minus HK based immigration) is from money printing and embezzlement, nothing else.

    Government controls over 50% of the income, virtually all business activity through regulation, and now controls heathcare and retirement industry.

    We already have top down government, you idiot.

  • Adobe's Price Is In The Clouds [View article]
    arthurtjang,

    The author clearly talks about the cost investors must pay for earnings and how Adobe's earnings haven't increased dramatically, as has the stock price.

    Adobe management talks about neting $4.00 per earnings at FY17, but since they haven't been increasing earnings much over the past few years, why should we believe them?

    Earnings growth drives stocks - over the long run. If Adobe doesn't deliver, the stock could get cut in half in a very short time period.

    I blame control freeks who support bigger control freaks in government. God, whether he is 'real' or not, has nothing to do with how much government we vote for in our lives.

    'market based solutions to catastrophic climate change' is more code words people like you use to bring in more centralized planning, aka communism.

    Great article.

    And I like your subtle sarcasm that mocks the bidding wars that often happen to already over-valued companies, just as is the case with Amazon.

    sduris,

    I went out for dinner last night with a friend simply because I had more pocket money than I usually do after only paying near $1.00 per litre for gas over the past few weeks.

    At its high point, gas in Ontario averaged $1.39, if I remember correctly.
    So, when I was putting 50 litres in my car every 4 days when gas was at its high point, I was spending an extra $20.

    With the savings I had accumulated up to last night, I got in my car, drove to Toronto, and took my friend out for sushi.

    And during the meal, all I could think about was how great it was that I was able to afford this extra meal due to the cheap gas.

    The meal came to $48 for two, so that represents the savings I had realized every 10 days with the cheaper gas. Next weekend I will visit my friend once again, and it is made possible by the lower oil prices which improves my disposable income, which of course, I want to spend.

    On my way home, I saw $0.95 cents per litre and it made me feel warm and fuzzy inside, knowing that my near future (at least in terms of how much I will have to pay to buy gas) will be better.

    Three things I hate doing in life:

    1. Texting
    2. Paying excessive prices for gas due to government interfernce
    3. Waiting for healthcare because of artificually imposed shortages created by government interference.

    95% of continuing problems are created by government. As they say in HK when expressing annoyance or disapproval - Aiya!

    BeeCalk,

    Japan has the most infrastructure spending per capita of any nation I have visited. Their roads are pristine, better than anything you might imagine. They 'stimulate' their economy every year with new projects.

    They also have one of the highest Debt-to-GDP raitos, per capita, in the world. They are broke, their currency is tanking and the average Japanese person's standard of living is being destroyed.

    Infrastructure is only good and fruitful if it is needed.
