    I'm the opposite....I will be upgrading my iPhone 5 this year, but don't see myself upgrading my iPad 3 anytime soon...

  • Why Apple TV Is Fighting For Survival [View article]
    "Apple TVs don't freeze without network problems" - that is an incorrect statement...the machine itself doesn't freeze...the issue is with the airplay...nothing that is native to the Apple ecosystem freezes (Netflix, Hulu, MLB.tv, etc...) we have only had issues with the airplay portion...both for video and audio streaming..

  • Why Apple TV Is Fighting For Survival [View article]
    My thoughts when reading this article were - "Gee, this sounds familiar"....there were similar sentiments going around when Apple was preparing to launch the iPhone....everybody said, Motorola and Nokia own the market and Apple is to late to the game....then they said AAPL would never penetrate businesses bc RIM (blackberry) owns that market and its security protocols are superior to AAPL's....

  • Why Apple TV Is Fighting For Survival [View article]
    My one complaint with AppleTV, and it legitimately has me thinking of jumping ship for Roku, is the lack of Amazon Prime...I have to use AirPlay to get it from my iPad to my TV and - without fail, 100% of the time - it freezes after about 10mins...Amazon Prime is how my daughter watches the Nick Jr shows that she loves...small problem for a small percentage of ppl, but couple that with the fact that SlingTV is available on every ecosystem except AppleTV and the move becomes easier to make....That said, I'm still long Apple as a company and have no doubt that the company will continue to dominate the consumer tech space.

  • Kinder Morgan: Earnings Replete With Boots, Spider Webs, Cats And Dogs And Silver Linings [View article]
    I vote that the judge is an idiot...maybe "idiot" is too harsh, but I'll ask you this: When valuing an energy company for acquisition, who are you going to put your money on - Richard Kinder or a divorce lawyer? Or maybe he does have the absolute best lawyer in history considering that if Hamm's valued stake in the company for divorce reasons - i.e. how much he has (had?) to grant his wife - was only valued at $248MM, but the fair market value of that stake was actually $1.86B I would say his lawyer did one helluva job for him....

  • Update: Kinder Morgan Increases Dividend [View article]
    Had you been holding KMR instead of KMP you would not have had those tax implications - not to mention you would have been receiving a higher dividend yield (same payout for a lower cost basis) and received a higher conversion ratio to KMI.

  • CCG Is A House Divided: Net Income And Dividend Yield Can't See Eye To Eye [View article]
    You keep trying to correlate student loans to the ability to pay rent, but - as others have repeatedly mentioned - there is no relationship there. If you actually look at line item charges for campus housing (aka dorms) you will see that, in most cases, the delta between campus housing and an apartment (when splitting the rent between 2-4 ppl) is minimal.

  • What Is Tonix Worth? [View instapost]
    I expect we'll see a runup to BESTFIT results that puts the PPS between $16 & $17....if results are as expected, a bump to mid $20's and close the year somewhere near $30....if results are not as good as all other phases of the trials, then it's headed back under $10 and likely under $5...I see this last scenario as highly unlikely, but in the spirit of the topic, figured I'd throw out my 2 cents....

    Joe, thanks for all your DD! I have learned a lot about the biotech industry by reading your articles and the comments from fellow followers.

    sure anyone can grow tomatoes or in this case MJ...the barrier to entry is the distribution system...I can have a nice tomato garden in my backyard, but my tomatoes have no impact on Del Monte's profits....that's like saying that everybody would just grow their own tobacco and limit the revenues for cigarette companies...

  • Provectus Should Have FDA Approval For Phase III, Why Adam Feurestein Is Wrong. [View instapost]
    excellent article, and while my degree is in Finance I completely understand and agree with your point about purification....I spent six years of my career working in a gas pipeline control room where the company I worked for provided process gases for the O&G industry...product purity had huge implications in process reaction times and equipment efficiencies....again, I'm a finance guy so I don't necessarily understand the science behind it, but the concept seems fairly straight forward...thanks for the article!
