  • Is It Time To Buy Workday Shares? [View article]
    Looks like your churn rate and customer lifetime number are very optimistic, resulting in high lifetime value and thus high return.

    Anyone know if they said how they will ship from store? Will they use their own transport fleet, UPS, etc?

    "My opinion on this topic will not change, and I have plenty of success under my belt to distinguish between a poor growth story, and a good one."

    Like Lululemon? Just remember, everyone's a genius in a bull market.

  • How NOT To Report On Demographics: Millennials Blamed For Taking Down McDonald's [View article]
    Judging by the more severe decline in SSS in APMEA, there must be a lot more millenials there ;)

  • Books-A-Million Still Struggling... And It's Getting Worse [View article]
    Well thought out post and analysis. Completely agree. At this point BAMM doesn't meet any real consumer need and can't get a return on its cost of capital.

    Sometime next month we should get new headlines that Amazon is looking at the use of drones for delivery... too soon to recycle?

  • Outlook Choppy For Staples [View article]
    For the author's information, Office Depot has completed its merger with Office Max and they are decreasing store count which should help Staples.

  • McDonald's Version Of Gone In 60 Seconds May Just Be What The Doctor Ordered [View article]
    I've always found their drive through service quick and professional, especially compared to other fast food chains. I think much of this idea that they are slow is media bs, and without any comparison to competitors. I do agree though that their menu is too complex.

  • Lofty Valuation And Substantial Stock Based Compensation Bode Poorly For Workday [View article]
    Agree with author, but in comparison of prior acquisitions it should be noted that SuccessFactors was quite profitable when it was sold at 10X sales. Also, acquisition prices are not necessarily the best comps, because they are often the winners in this grand game, sold at the top of markets and for top prices. So 10X sales might turn out to be quite generous as a comp. I'd be interested to know Taleo's profitability at time of sale...

  • Amazon Wins The Race To Live Streaming TV, Expect Big Things [View article]
    This sounds like a very good move for Amazon. Still the stock is overpriced.

  • Salesforce.com: Profit Outlook Remains Cloudy [View article]
    Great analysis imo of big picture with SaaS and probable "end game" scenario.

    One thing left out of discussion however is role of acquisitions in CRM's growth. With larger, more well-funded competitors like MSFT, Oracle, and SAP moving into cloud trying to play catch up, there has been some hefty acquisition prices for smaller companies. While on the face of it this would seem to favor CRM's valuation, I think in fact it will be its undoing for the following reasons. I doubt a mega-ego like Benioff would ever be willing to sell the company and lose his platform for the spotlight, therefore in order to compete, he will end up in a bidding war for many of these smaller tuck-ins with the big guys. And history has shown one thing, Benioff is more than willing to pay up to build his empire! One bad, overpriced acquisition could easily cost investors, 10 or 15 years worth of future profits. This will guarantee low ROI for investors. Couple this with a heavy reliance on an inflated stock price for compensation, you've got a recipe for massive dilution if things don't play out perfectly for the company.
