  • AFLAC's CEO Discusses Q4 2013 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    I like this company. I like the duck. I like being a stockholder. I do not like being so tied to the Japanese yen. Have to reconsider this one.

  • Intel: Reality Has Set In [View article]
    I am in the same boat Guitar Man - I think I have made more money off of INTC than all my other investments. You can usually buy and sell with a $4-$5 spread every year.

    @ Robert HD
    To be fair - it is unfair to SA contributors to put them in this catch 22:
    A) You do not have a dog in the fight - why should I buy in?

    OR

    B) You own this stuff, you are just pumping - why should I buy in?

    Agreed, my point is that both viewpoints are valuable and there is no need to take shots at either approach as INTC rises and falls. SA would be rather boring if everyone had the same take.

    Tough sledding for $INTC bulls right now for sure. Still some comments:
    1. I personally feel that AE states his opinions clearly and fairly and provides info for folks to consider. I think Bill does the same, and the opposite viewpoints are a net positive for SA. So I don't fall into the finger pointing trap.
    2. As an $INTC shareholder, I personally do not assign much ire to the divvy freeze. If they do not meet their margin of safety, it is foolish to raise a divvy when you are already >4%. Of course, I do worry about a divvy cut which would have me running for the hills.
    3. I stay long on $INTC because I am a divvy investor only, and it gives me a chance to be a growth stock, and rewards me at 4% during the trying stages.

    I would imagine the write down would appear below the line as gain/loss on divesting units and not have a material impact on share price at this point. I try not to crack on individual failures too much because they are often a father to success. However, $INTC is facing a very fair questioning as to their wisdom of overall R/D and Acquisition spending. Not getting a bang for the buck there much more troubling than the individual failure of a venture.

    Not much worse than a cube monkey with soiled pants. Hate when that happens.

    Stronger than when PIIGS was in the news everyday predicting their governments would collapse. Do not want to imply that the income levels of folks are better off.

    It has dropped approximately 4 points and it sort of confirms what we know. Job production in the USA has not kept up with the population and virtually all of the unemployment rate improvement can be traced to people exiting the work force. Personally, think the Keystone pipeline is a good place to start. Hope we can get our stuff together.

    Some counter points:
    1. Ms Yellen could alter taper to avoid crashing market.
    2. Sequester is peanuts
    3. EU is much stronger now then during the bull run.
    4. Underlying economic data not that bad in comparison to 2010 say.

    I do agree though the future is cloudy at best. To me, the single biggest data points that scare the bejeezus out of me are:
    1. The USA labor participation rate at a 5 decade low
    2. Declining personal income for 5 years now.

    If we get the USA job situation straightened out, the EM stuff will not worry me too awful much.

    @ Ted -
    Would it help if I tossed a couple of pounds of bacon in the air? Willing to sacrifice to get my $INTC up
