  • Disney (DIS +0.7%) has raised admission prices at its California and Florida theme parks by as much as 9.6%. Single-day, multi-day, and annual passes are all affected. A one-day pass to the Magic Kingdom in Orland is now $95 from $89 for those 10 and older. For one of two parks at Anaheim's Disneyland, it's now $92 from $87. A park hopper ticket allowing entry to both parks is 9.6% higher to $137. [View news story]
    Wait for Disney below $60 then pounce. DIS is going to $200+ by 2015.

  • Yield-starved investors are piling into frontier-market debt, allowing small countries with no capital markets track record to raise cash at rock-bottom rates. Case in point: At 5.2%, General Electric's (GE) 10-year bonds yield 58 bps more than Paraguay's, and only 142 bps less than Rwanda's. [View news story]
    GE is like the federal government. It is too big to fail but too incompetent to deserve to grow any larger. GE will never yield anything unless it is broken up like Standard Oil into smaller companies. This will create growth that can be used to pay off its huge under-funded pension funds. For every GE, there are 100 small companies that can't make it because GE, like the government, can create its own debt and out-spend the little guy. Truthfully, we have the worst U.S. Congress in American history and without a Congress that is on board with renewing the nation's energy grid and rebuilding worn-out infrastructure we will not progress and GE will stumble along. If you read somewhere that the Congress is finally on-board with out President in rebuilding our country without extorting an abortion amendment on every new bill, then and only then should you invest in GE. GE has a cloudy future.

    There is more growth in the emerging markets than in the U.S. and Europe combined so if this growth can be managed then certainly the debt can be managed well for the investor. Things are a lot safer now without a Republican in charge feeding our tax dollars to dictatorships in exchange for oil rights. The biggest fear, after Arab Spring, is that we still have more friends than enemies.

  • Vical's CEO Presents at 31st Annual J.P. Morgan Healthcare Conference (Transcript) [View article]
    I think this HSV-2 program is a miraculous event. One of President Obama's early campaign promises before the first term was to do something to promote research and more government funding for Aids, HIV and HSV-2. Has Vical received any government-funding or assistance for their programs?

  • While some argue for Apple (AAPL) to be taken private, Conor Sen thinks it's time for the company to take its cash pile ($60B and growing every day) and buy Disney (DIS) - a response to hardware markets that can't help but become commoditized, and a move further into the "intersection of computing, communications, and media delivery."  [View news story]
    When the technology emerges for successful wireless and eyeglassless 3D movie hardware and software to be sold for home viewing Apple will be there and Disney will own the most exciting 3D product in the form of Pixar and Marvel. It is a natural union that will occur soon. I can't wait to see Jobs' contribution to the new adult Disney park being built in Walt Disney World, Florida right now.

  • Cramer's Lightning Round - Don't Gamble Yet With Las Vegas Sands (3/16/11) [View article]
    Why no current Disney comments since the lightning round on 3/16/11 when Cramer said at $36-37 a share this would be a heroic level to buy Disney and he wouldn't do it? Well, it's nearly $44 now and with several Marvel movies coming out, the cruise ships full and the parks bursting you would think he would see things a little different.
