  • Vanguard ETF Portfolio For The Moderate Investor [View article]
    The proportion of small to large company stocks can be figured out, and Vanguard has that info. What is the proportion of small companies in VTI? Compare that to the above pie chart. It looks like more large and less small than VTI has. It's not a make or break investment issue, IMO. These are indexes, what will "watching" them do for you? Worry about fees maybe. For one minute, then, don't worry, be happy!

    The proportion of small to large stocks would change with VTI.

  • Disney: Not so fast on skinny bundling, Verizon [View news story]
    The sentiment in the peanut gallery is clear, but who has the leverage is all that matters. ESPN has it, for now. Since ESPN has legions of customers, a "third force"--outside of the face-off with Verizon--needs to enter, which could be, for example, customer indifference to their product (haha), or competition, as poster "brainleft" mentioned above, or ESPN selling it's (its) product directly to their market, channel by channel, on the Internet. They don't have the guts to do that, I'd guess. But that, in a flash, would obviate Verizon, the middle, and head off the Future at the pass.

  • Google's Slow-Motion Strangulation [View article]
    Google has various "projects", but Google is at heart a dabbler, and doesn't follow thru on most of them, being too busy scrambling to take biz away from Facebook, etc.

    As of 4/7 price and volume are the only "truth".

  • Avoid Exposure To Oil At Current Levels [View article]
    I think the author is very right, however much I 'd like to think the "deal" with this egregious regime is already "priced in" to various stocks I own. But they'll tumble afresh, I fear. Thanks for the excellent article.

  • Lumber Liquidators Is Evil [View article]
    Didn't read all the comments, nor all the article actually, but, forgetting about "investments"--if that's possible around here--China, where we can go to buy ground rhino horn, etc, etc--is also "evil". (a somewhat foolishly used word in the article title)

    One would like to think it should be very very difficult for Lumbering Liquidators, or any other company, to sniff around for and find nefarious "deals" in China--but it isn't difficult. From melanine in food, to formaldehyde in home building supplies, to--lest I forget--fraudulent stocks/companies trading on our exchanges--their iron-fist government is nowhere to be seen--unless it's clamping down on any sign of democracy.

  • Apple's Plan To Rethink Television [View article]
    Apple is still functioning as a middle-meddler, between you and the Internet. It'll never happen, but if the networks, and "content" sellers accept direct subscriptions for their content, as does Netflix (not HBO), THIS will be a game changer, " ", this will be the "cord-cutter"---otherwise Apple TV is same old same old.

  • Apple: Is Web-TV Addressing An Ecosystem Risk? [View article]
    The good news is the egregious cable box will be absent. But. Having to buy a "TV set" is not good for me. The best idea, the real "cable cut", comes with the use of existing stuff you already bawt. Since the kahoonas who run the networks won't likely develop a DIRECT online subscription service, so you can make up your own "bundles", Apple TV is the same old same old.

  • Sony launches its 'cable killer' streaming video service [View news story]
    The only true cable killer, " ", is to subscribe to ONE channel at a time, thru the network, with no bundling. Pay per channel over the internet. THAT is a "cable killer".
    This involves each network putting up a subscriber framework--which aint gonna happen. HBO Go, for example, requires--you guessed it--cable TV to serve as the middle-biz. But if HBO took subscribers directly with no middle-biz, that, again, is a "cable killer".
