  • Ford: Finally Ready To Roll In 2015 [View article]
    Completely agree. A friend just asked me for a good stock recommendation and Ford was the first stock I mentioned. You can buy Ford and sleep at night.

  • Monster Worldwide: 'Monster' Move Following Q3 Results [View article]
    It was over $50 in during both 2006 and 2007. It was over $20 as recently as the beginning of 2011. Seeing it is currently trading under $5, it really is a good value.

  • Zacks' Bear Of The Day: Ford [View article]
    STRONG SELL? Surprising! Very short sighted considering the direction the company is taking and your article did nothing to show that there were problems in this area. Quite the opposite, your state you are reacting to other analysis but their collective 12 month price targets don't mesh with your knee jerk recommendation.

    With the majority of analysis projecting a 17.26 price target the 12 month upside is still over 20%. Couple this with Ford's 3.5% dividend and you just lost credibility. At most I would think Ford merits a HOLD, certainly not a STRONG SELL.

  • Vipshop's 10-1 Stock Split: Taking A Page From Baidu And Why I'm Bullish [View article]
    Justin, I'll first state that Chinese stocks are inherently risky and from my experience I take their financial statements with a grain of salt; that said when looking at the normalized PE of VIPS aren't you concerned about a substantial pull back? I would think that a better risk/reward play in China might be TCEHY. Comments.

  • Vringo bolsters legal team, provides update on trials [View news story]
    Why worry at this point, the stock is at 80 cents a share. I'd rather risk 80 cents at the prospect that the legal team accomplishing getting a hearing and reversing the terrible decision; and have the stock shoot up 500%. Also, you don't want to pull resources away from the ZTE litigation.

  • Ford: Groping For A Floor [View article]
    On both, follow the analysis' target expectations, including the lowest expectation. The analysis usually reflect reasonable sediment of institutional buying. Also see how low the stocks are in comparison then couple that with their dividend and the likelihood of the dividend being cut. With both stocks it is reasonable to think that you can buy now and within 12 months make 10-15% on your money unless you decide to hold, then that is on you. It's not rocket science with mega cap companies that have cash to fall back on.

    riskrunner-Are we talking about the TSLA that is priced at $240 and is projected to earn 2 cents next quarter?? Also you would be doing all of us a favor if you would share about a half dozen of the dozens of stocks that make far more sense than buying Ford after this sell off?? I for one would like to do my DD on your selections. Also for the record, over the past five years in Ford averaged over $12.50 a share for 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014 and in 2012, the off year, Ford averaged highs above 12.50 for the first three months and closed the year at 12.95, but then you had gains from the dividend (but it was a off year for Ford). Ford has generally been a very good conservative stock to buy low, at time like this, and hold. Within a year stockholders usually are rewarded nicely if they buy at the right price. My money is on buying Ford now, it might not be the lowest they go but I'm not going to be greedy. That said, please do share your selections. Always open to the selection of others. Thank you in advance.

    Bret, I'm in agreement with you. The sell off was a huge overreaction. Ford only confirmed that they would struggle to make the lower end of their previous guidance and stated factors that should not have been totally unexpected. I believe many investors exited because they are also worried about the market being overextended as well and Ford has made a nice run this year. The action of the last five days of Ford going from 16.70 to below 14.50 represents a 15% decline and a gift to anyone with cash on the sidelines. I think that in 12 months Ford can recoup this and yes the 3.3% dividend is an added bonus. It was for this reason I too took advantage of the sell off and added significantly.

    I would think that would benefit SDRL.

    Sanctions imposed by the EU should also in turn pressure EU nations to become less dependent on Russia for energy. That is the paradox; when the European nations impose sanctions on Russia, they are in turn imposing an energy hardship on themselves. I would think that this would be a plus for more off-shore drilling; a benefit for SDRL. This seems like a nice stock pick and it is possibly a chance to buy at a low. I glad this article put SDRL back on my radar screen. For that, thank you. I'll be buying some.

    Kipper007, your bio reads, "Here to learn more," however, it seems like you are more interested in criticizing Doug for a snippet in his profile bio. Hard to understand why you overlooked everything he taught you in his excellent article and decided to post what you did.

    IMO the patents in question (VRNG 420 & 664) should fall under 35 U.S. Code 101 since they deal with process and the "abstract idea" has a definable practical application. End of story.

    I think the 2 judges allowed Google to define what they should be looking at (Alice case) which tied the application of computers to a business method. Not the same aguement. I couldn't guess why the judges went down this road.

    PP, I understand. My problem is definitely with the SCOTUS. My fear is that they will reject hearing the VRNG because they want to avoid defining their "Technological Arts Patent Test." Primarily because they can't. Both Mayer and Wallach had an opportunity to listen to and go along with the reasoning of Chen (see the article below, Chen is ahead of the curve).

    Here is a the article that examines the problem and attempts to provide a solution.

    Wallach was appointed to his position by Obama who has been attacking "patent trolls" but probably can't define what he means by that. It would not be out of the question for Obama to appoint someone who thought like him.

    As we all have stated it was a cop-out ruling that didn't add any clarity to the Supreme Court Alice vs. CLS Bank ambiguity which now has everyone wondering how are courts going to define what are abstract ideas as they relate to computers and software? Additionally, this ruling sets up an attack on intellectual properties. Hopefully, this gets sorted out because Mayer and Wallach have just created chaos.
