  • McDonald’s: Earnings Preview [View article]
    competition from other fast food companies...must be the reason they are trying to sell off their parts. if anyone paid attention to their long term neutral rating (what ever that is) how much growth would the have missed in 2010...about 18% plus a dividend. granted yum growth was higher, but dividend much much lower. this is one reason I canceled mu zacks membership. don't need it to make decisions.

  • You've been warned: Higher airline fares are coming. American (AMR) and Delta (DAL) each expect their fuel costs to rise more than $1B this year, and the airlines believe they can make fare increases stick. “Strong demand and tight capacity has given management the ability to raise fares and add fees," an analyst says.  [View news story]
    nothing wrong with raising fares and adding more fees...just like tax increases and more fees...revenue declines.

  • Reasons to Be Bullish on America: Four Stock Picks [View article]
    Frank, don't think comments are relative to optimism and the greatness of America, rather the ability of American business being allowed to do what they have done and proven in the past due to increasing government interference(s) . we are being increasingly micromanaged at all levels, by bureaucratic slugs whose major qualification is membership in some employee union and longevity of employment. the government tells MDs who they must treat and how much they can earn. Bankers get bailed out so they can buy treasuries rather than supporting their communities. Market manipulators (including rating agencies) support their friends and if you cheat, pay a fine and enjoy your stolen wealth. the retired or retiring can look for fabulous less than 1% earnings on their savings and that is taxed, I believe. Almost 1/2 of our population are on food stamps and nearly 20% are not working, because it is easier for them to take the subsidies offered.
    Agree we are a great country, but our ability to be great is being tarnished and revoked by goons like piglosi,reid,bama,fran... and the like. seems like the only way to get rid of the socialist in congress is to let the die in office like kennedy, byrd, thurmond, and the like. the country is on the wrong track and leaders are necessary to recover what we had so we can do more that outsource manufacturing to this country or that country and them have sec state hillary point out how we are democratizing the world. we need trade but fair trade, but we are not allowed to drill and pump our own oil or mine our own coal. ain't gonna stay great on this path.

  • Why Best Buy Is a Buy, Netflix a Sell [View article]
    bby trading at low pe for a reason, it isn't worth a higher risk. everything they have in inventory I can usually find else where at a lesser price. electronic geeks buy the product not the store selling it. In last 5 years wmt stock up almost 9% bby down over 20%.

    if you compare tgt vs wmt on google finance, you will see they are not comparable any more than bob's burgers to mcd. tgt stock price has risen more than wmt in the past year but at 5 years wmt wins. i say take your tgt profit and buy wmt.

  • Visa, MasterCard Suffer From Interchange Fees Slashing [View article]
    the government democraps will always find a way to destroy private business business plans and profitability. The stupidity of the FED is apparent daily and this will only require V and MA to move overseas and continue their business. the DC hand wringers continue to wonder why employment is staying down and corporations are holding their cash. These types of actions are the reason and will continue to dominate the corporate world until we make the USA competitive in the world market by lowering corporate tax rates and double taxing business investors.
