  • The Short Case For World Wrestling Entertainment [View article]
    I'd be a buyer at $8.25, but that would mean the WWE Network was and "epic fail".

  • Citing a jump in complaints about hacked accounts, BT is abandoning Yahoo Mail (YHOO) as the e-mail platform for its broadband services in favor of home-grown BT Mail. 6M Yahoo Mail accounts will be migrated. Meanwhile, Tumblr continues to roll out fresh ad formats. A month after adding sponsored posts (similar to Facebook's Sponsored Stories) to its mobile apps, Tumblr has brought them to its Web dashboard; initial partners include Ford, AT&T, and Viacom. Marissa Mayer has stated Tumblr could see premium and retargeted ads, and Tumblr CEO David Karp has touted his service's potential to enable "creative brand advertising" that breaks traditional display ad molds. [View news story]

Specifically, consumer-facing startups featuring "talented teams of fewer than 10 employees," but which lack "any truly notable traction," and have been unable to obtain a Series A funding round.

    @t sgarg05..I'm thinking we are past the reviving part of Yahoo, as it appears Ms. Mayer is turning loose dogs now. Hulu's the gamble, but still cheaper than Netflix. Watch for something big to happen with Apple in the not so distant future.

  • GE: Is It Time To Hold On Or Buy More? [View article]
    I wouldn't mind seeing a miss on this quarter so I can double down on the discount. I am long on GE as I see a split off of GE Capital in the very near future.
