  • Interesting Times For All Commodities And Investments !! Chapter 131.... [View instapost]
    Cummins and Pfizer with pre-market beats...

    Appears that the Nike FuelBand doesn't track calories and steps quite the way it was advertised. Nike (and Apple) have agree to either refunds of $15 or a $25 Nike gift card. No admission of any wrong-doing, taking a page from Jon Corzine's playbook, so it seems.
    Anyone wear one of these?

    Anyone else use Amazon on a regular basis? It seems that we have items coming from Amazon almost daily. The UPS guy, "my driver", told me that if he doesn't have a delivery to our house then his whole day is thrown off...true story!...great guy and a great company...glad I own stock in UPS...My driver has the green light to grab a water out of our garage at any time as he always takes the time to place packages inside if we are not at home...our dog doesn't even bark at him anymore...he is like family!

    Have a great day everyone. Off to running for my football players. I will check back soon.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Futures Rise With Fed Meeting In Focus [View article]
    Engine manufacturer Cummins Inc. said second-quarter profit rose 5.6% as demand in North American markets and the benefit of acquisitions offset weakness in Brazil and other foreign markets. Good news from Cummins!

    Pfizer Inc reported better-than-expected quarterly profit and revenue. Increases in vaccine sales were cited as helping PFE to the beat.

    Nike FuelBand owners out there? A pending lawsuit in Superior Court in Los Angeles claimed that "misleading statements were made regarding the Nike+ FuelBand's ability to accurately track calories, steps and NikeFuel." Nike and Apple deny the claims. Owners of the FuelBand are eligible for a $15 payment or a $25 Nike gift card, under the terms of the settlement. Step right up and get your cash or gift cart! No need to apologize for our product not doing what it was made to do, track calories and steps, no need at all!

    Hoping to lower its exposure to the weak coal market, Consol Energy will delay a planned initial public offering of a unit holding steel-making coal assets due to weak prices. They may want to hold on to that steel-making coal asset if things continue to go as they have lately.

    Just wanted to add a few tidbits, or TimBits for you Timmy Horton's folks, of news.

    Where is Jon Corzine and how many calories did he burn this morning on his run according to his FuelBand?

    Have a great day everyone. Stay safe, sage, and sane out there.

    Thanks al.

    I hope that I am right more often than not when it comes to investing...lots of time doing research and reading all I can about the stocks I own and ones that I am considering...not all pass the test, so I think I have narrowed it down to some winners...

    You folks are awesome!

    No doubt that I (and my wife) have influenced our daughter.

    No holdings yet on LOYAL3. We will get her registered and buying shares very soon.

    Thank you so much for taking an interest in what we are doing with Ella.

    Steve (and Kelly) in WNY.

    Thanks crademan.

    XOM has lost some value for me. I am in long-term so I am not worried. I have added shares at the lower price and will continue to do so.

    I like KMI and PBF. Pipelines and refining. Just a few other holdings in the oil & gas sector to consider.

    I am amazed at the amount of time Mr. Trump is getting on news and political talk shows.

    I respect that he is not a politician and doesn't pretend to be.

    Perhaps what this country needs is someone who is not a career politician and has some experience in the non-political world?

    Republican Party can embrace Mr. Trump or watch him run on a third party ticket, from what I have gathered.

    I will have a rum and cranberry later in honor of Norman.

    My neighbor, before I moved, was a WWII vet. He took part in D-Day and spent three years in the European Theatre. On the rare occasion that he did talk about his experiences, I was glued to his every word. He passed away almost a year ago. Lee Friar was a man who made the Greatest Generation the greatest.

    I will have a second rum and cranberry in honor of Lee.

    I just asked her if she had any questions. She said, and I quote:

    "No questions. I am thinking Apple and Disney."

    If any of you have any comments for my daughter Ella, I will pass them along to her.

    She is reading over my shoulder as I type!

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Chinese Shares Burst Government Support Dam [View article]
    I hate to buck the trend of bashing higher education, but I'm going to.

    Our two oldest sons, one at The University at Buffalo and one at St. John Fisher College in Rochester, NY, are getting wonderful educations. Architecture at UB and Criminal Justice at Fisher. My wife and I have no issue with the education that our boys are receiving. Both schools have professors who have taken a personal interest in our sons education. I would not hesitate to have any of our other children follow their brother to either school.

    Generalizations aren't always true. There are plenty of wonderful colleges and universities who take higher education seriously. Too bad that a few professors and schools make the news when they say or do something that goes against the majority of others.

    Just my two cents. (Let the comments fly)

    Thank you crademan.

    My wife and I are doing just that. Letting her explore and discover. The approach worked with our boys, so why try to reinvent the wheel?

    I will keep you posted.

    I am very thankful that I live and work in WNY, far from the politics of NYC.

    Plenty of land owners in the county in which I live and work are from the NYC area. Must be the rural setting...

    Buckoux,

    My apologies. You have always been very quick to point out that the trouble is with the union leaders and not membership and I appreciate that.

    BlueOkie,

    I am employed by my local school district. Technically I do work for the state. Here is why I say "technically."

    I have been paid by the Federal Government for years under a Federal Grant that my district secured. I have to fill out paperwork each year that is tied to the Fed. grant.

    Am I state employee? Am I a Federal employee?

    All I know is that I am a teacher and a coach.

    Thank you both for your comments.
