  • Yeezy Just Jumped Over Jumpman  [View article]
    Can't wait for the Jay-Z line of sneakers from adidas.

    Maybe a woman's line featuring another non-athlete like Beyonce.

    I want a cut when this comes to be.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Rocky Start To The Week For Stocks  [View article]
    Thank you.

    Pretty concerned that Citigroup will block charges going to two companies that are allowed, by court order, to operate in NY State.

    NY AG should turn his attention to the HFTs and Dark Pools that are overtaking Wall Street.

    Last time I checked, Wall Street was located in NY State.

    Laissez–faire economics.

    Credit Suisse CEO bonus reduction comes in the wake of Credit Suisse's first loss in eight years, thousands of job cuts, a $2.6 billion legal settlement in the United States for helping wealthy people there evade taxes and other problems.

    How quickly the troubles can be forgotten if the leader only takes 50% of his bonus.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Rocky Start To The Week For Stocks  [View article]
    Yahoo/Starboard in the news this morning following a mention by Verizon who is interested in acquiring parts/all of the struggling company. No word on the fate of CEO Marissa Mayer who could have spent some money on Super Bowl commercial to show how great Yahoo/Starboard is doing.

    Still missing Greece, overshadowed by North Korea, Tesla, and PIMCO. It isn't Alfred E. Newman, but I like the changing coffee cup at the top of the home page.

    Credit Suisse (NYSE:CS) CEO Tidjane Thiam has asked the company's board to reduce his bonus, days after the Swiss bank reported a fourth-quarter multibillion-dollar loss that sent its share price tumbling. Why doesn't Tidjane Thiam simply reduce his own bonus? Why ask the Board to do what he could do himself?

    The game was better than the commercials.

    Top commercial: Subaru's spot during the Puppy Bowl. I love dogs driving cars!

    It's my kind of town, Chicago.

    Apple closer to opening stores in India. Not sure how the anti-Apple crowd misses the fact that Apple is moving into a huge market in India. It's been said before that Apple's growth will continue to grow in China and India. Seems like there might be more than a few people there to make it worthwhile.

    Citigroup (NYSE:C) said it would block transactions by NY state residents to Fan Duel and Draft Kings until the courts make a final decision. Not sure I need my bank doing the work of the NY AG, but I am glad I don't have anything to do with Citigroup. Will Citigroup stop at blocking these transactions, or will others be blocked too? Can folks buy a large soda in NYC using a Citigroup card?

    I guess that Ford missed the ads that say: New York is open for Business. A new plant will be built in Mexico by Ford. Why not build it in the Empire State? Governor Cuomo used a Ford to pull stranded motorists off the roads a few weeks back.

    Where is Jon Corzine and did MF Global run a Super Bowl ad this year?

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

  • Under Armour's Valuation Stretched  [View article]
    Blue Chips have been showing volatility, why wouldn't anyone expect this of Under Armour as well.

    Last quarter showed, once again, that most analysts have UA pegged incorrectly. Warmer than usual winter weather was supposed to harm UA. Sneaker sales weren't going be a driver. The same old negative analyst speak.

    Those who have focused on valuation have missed the UA boat for years and years.

    Too bad for them.

  • Under Armour's Valuation Stretched  [View article]
    It appears that Under Armour has proven for years and years that valuation doesn't affect performance. Sure I get that UA's valuation is "ridiculous" and they are "overvalued." I also get that I bought shares for $30 years ago, rode the stock up to over $100 taking profit along the way, saw the stock split and go back to $50, and rode it up to over $90 once again.

    If you honestly believer that investing in UA is like playing roulette and base this on valuaiton, then you don't quite understand what has been going on in sports apparel and footwear.

    Just my opinion of course.

  • Lions Gate's Movies Are Becoming Less Popular, So Will Its Stock  [View article]
    Lions Gate Entertainment (NYSE:LGF) is up 2.5% as Bernstein launches coverage at Outperform, calling it a "rare opportunity" to invest in a studio without having to invest in TV networks.The firm's Todd Juenger has set a price target of $48; shares closed yesterday at $33.47 and are trading at $34.29, implying 40% upside in the target from here.Both networks' demand for original content and studio orders are at all-time highs, he notes, with studios facing "very few limits to production capacity."“Lions Gate is specifically well-positioned to participate in the growth," Juenger writes, "with virtues including: a) a unique de-risked film model, and b) a fast-growing independent TV production business which can serve customers including TV networks and SVODs without conflict.”The looming presence of cable mogul John Malone is a catalyst as well, he notes; while the stock faces some short-term volatility (providing two-way opportunities for traders as well as optimism for long-term investors with tolerance for volatility), LGF and Malone will be a factor in some kind of consolidation going forward.

    The above is from Dec. and the long-term outlook hasn't changed.

    Congratulations DonaldSkipper. You get to tell everyone how right you were about the last Quarter.

    The sky hasn't fallen. The stock has returned to pre-Hunger Games prices.

    Pat yourself on the back for a job well done.

    Cam Newton, Tom Brady, Jordan Spieth...not much to get excited about. More and more colleges going with UA uniforms and footwear. That Notre Dame deal means nothing.

    Supplying kits (uniforms) for Barclay's Premier League Tottenham Hotspur, no big deal there.

  • Disney: More Than Just The King Of Content  [View article]
    No, no, no!

    Disney is in trouble because "cord-cutters" are dropping cable and ESPN. It's been in all the newspapers.

    Disney Shanghai is behind schedule. Forget the fact that tickets are being sold out months in advance.

    Forget all of the positives in the article, listen to those who think DIS is in trouble.

    (Sarcasm, of course)

    Great article. Long DIS for years and appreciate positive vibrations for the company.

  • Under Armour takes on tech  [View news story]
    On another positive note, Steph Curry is the best player in the NBA.

    One more positive note, Jordan Spieth is the best golfer in the world.

    Lots to be excited about if you are investing in UA, IMO.

    Thanks al-

    Not sure why I posted the same comment 5 times. Something a little buggy on my end. Maybe SA editors can delete some of the multiple posts.

    Apologies and my IT is working on a solution.

    I bought BA this past week following their "disappointing" outlook for 2016. When the CEO explained that 12-15 less planes will be built and that they are transitioning production to a new aircraft, he caught my attention. When he discussed the projections for 2017 and 2018, I jumped in. BA has orders for the next 20 years.

    Needless to say, I agree with you on Boeing.
