  • Wait Until 70 For Social Security  [View article]
    It amazes me that literally every article I read in the media about this subject recommends waiting to receive SS.
    It's as if they think no one will die, ever. They also assume that the govt will do nothing to effect future payouts and will fix the system before it runs out of money.
    One HUGE benefit to taking the money at 62?
    The system will last longer, and just might not run out, at least as quickly as forecast.

  • Apple's True Opportunities In 2013  [View article]
    Your're very close. NFC opens a brand new, and huge revenue stream, letting the provider grab just a teeny bit from EVERY transaction fee. This is essentially as good as printing money.
    It won't likely come from a watch. We already complain about the iphone screen being too small.....Additionally, security is a huge issue that needs to be addressed if NFC is to become ubiquitous. A new revenue stream will come from the next iphone, equipped with NFC and a biometric reader.

  • More on Apple: Raymond James reports many iPhone suppliers have "recently indicated an expectation of earlier seasonality," and takes it as evidence of a pending refresh. A big drop in shipments is expected for the June quarter, followed by Sep. quarter growth. The big question for Apple is whether an iPhone 5S that keeps a 4" display (as has been reported) will lead to a major sales pickup in the face of growing demand for larger displays, and the upcoming launch of Samsung's Galaxy S IV. However, an early 5S release would suggest an accelerated launch for an iPhone 6 rumored to have a bigger display.  [View news story]
    You heard it here first.
    Apple will introduce a new feature on its upcoming iphone that will begin an all new revenue stream for Apple; one that is big, and requires no hardware, as lucrative as itunes, if not more so. If you aren't long AAPL now, you should be soon. We'll never see this stock price anytime soon.
