  • More losses for Re/Max on 2nd downgrade in 2 days [View news story]
    I can't believe RE/MAX has held together as well as it has but it does have self interested audience in over 100,000 RE/MAX brokers and REALTORs. Oh well, its really nothing more then a marketing company with a fee pyramid!

  • Micron: Don't Buy The PC Turnaround Argument Just Yet [View article]
    Intel's 6th gen Skylake and Microsoft's Windows 10 will create a PC refresh cycle in the next 3-6 months. Buy INTC and MSFT and leave MU to fight for memory market share.

  • Intel's Latest Processor Ready To Stimulate PC Sales [View article]
    It's probably going to be Q4 2015 before we see the real financial effects of Intel's 6th gen. However, we're already seeing some great devices from many ODM's. Intel's been holding up stronger during recent pullbacks due to already having been down over 20%. Lots of opportunity for those that know how.

  • Microsoft: Power BI Content Packs For Adobe, Azure And Webtrends [View article]
    Microsoft's Azure is going to enable a huge number of users that heretofore could not afford or justify the environment required to use Microsoft's growing variety of enterprise solutions. It's just amazing how easy and simple it is to test drive and then deploy.

  • China National Security Law Bites Trend Micro [View article]
    It's not just China! How many PC's are protected by Kaspersky! The EU and US have some interesting ideas on intellectual property and privacy too! It's quite easy to be a Western hypocrite about cultures and laws.

    Dana,

    I usually buy INTC shares when it dips to low 20s and sell at 30 or above. That's been working pretty good since 2008. I never buy and hold anything after the 2000 dot com lesson. In todays world I'm more inclined to buy LEAPS on cyclicals like INTC and buy CEF like GDV for income. Sometime I buy shares and sell CALLs to hedge which can be exciting and rewarding too.

    Dana - Dividing a market on compatibility issues reduces growth.

    Reduces growth for who? If someone loses, someone else gains.

    Dana - Intel has been confused for a decade.

    How is Intel confused when in the last 5 years they've generated $260b revenue, $160b GM (83%) and $57b net income (22%)? Intel failed to capitalize on mobile devices but they did not have the IP or processes to compete without cannibalizing their other product lines. They've done very well in the cloud movement.

    investingInvestor - my thesis on Intel Corporation is they have wasted the last 9 years

    I do not have the last 9 years history but if we use the last 5 years Intel's generated $260b in revenue, $161b in gross margins and $57b net income. That's seems to be a quite profitable waste of time! Maybe not as good as Apple's consumer based monopoly buy hey, consumers are fools!

    huthutho - Isn't it amusing the opposite reactions you get if you praise someone for socializing but tag them with supporting socialism. I guess my two pet peeves are democratic socialism and political correctness.

    Bruce,

    Yes I agree and that's why Intel has been aggressively investing in the various popular Unix derivatives like Android and Linux and cloud platforms. Microsoft's doing the same adopting approaches like Hadoop open source framework for big data. It's great that everybody can socialize and grab the pieces of technology that's in their own best interest without helping their competitors.

    Dana - I love the way some people say "socialism" as though it ends all argument.

    Socialism - a system in which there is no private property has nothing to do with all that anti-communistic crap they taught us in high school and colleges. It's amusing that Intel and Microsoft's once proprietary Wintel monopoly is popularly criticized and the OSF open source model praised endlessly for its contribution to humanity. I guess that's the crap they now teach in high school and colleges. Maybe we'd still be in the software dark ages if AT&T had not contributed SVR4 to the open source movement.
