  • Harper "won't take no for an answer" from U.S. on Keystone [View news story]
    Hooey! If he's got such big "balls" why can't he get a pipeline to the east or west coast of his OWN country built.

    Keystone does nothing for the US. All they're gonna do is ship the oil that doesn't leak out between Canada and the gulf off to other countries.

  • Health insurers plan to limit the choices of doctors and hospitals offered on their plans [View news story]
    The "disaster" is how "free market capitalism" has created a system that charges double what it costs in any other industrialized country to deliver healthcare results that are less than stellar.

  • Microsoft (MSFT -11%) is plunging following its FQ4 miss, and is taking other PC-related names lower with it. HPQ -4.2%. INTC -1.4%. NVDA -2.2%. Goldman (Sell) predicts lower Windows price points for smaller/touch devices and emerging markets piracy will lead Windows sales growth to lag already-weak PC shipment growth. Nomura (Buy) thinks activism (led by ValueAct?) is now more likely, and could drive shares higher. Some bright spots: SQL Server and System Center revenue grew 16% and 14% Y/Y; Lync revenue rose 30%; over 50% of the Fortune 500 is using Azure; and "Windows Phone" revenue (much of it consists of Android royalties) rose by $222M .

  • Windows OEM revenue (65% of division sales) is expected to show a "mid-teens" adjusted Y/Y drop in FQ1, Microsoft (MSFT) states on its FQ4 CC. OEM sales fell 15% in FQ4, as a 20%+ drop in consumer sales and pricing "incentives" offset healthy enterprise demand. CFO Amy Hood says Microsoft is still looking at ways to adjust Windows pricing, including for smaller devices. Server & Tools is expected to grow in the high-single-digits again. The Office division's business sales (85% of total) are seen growing in the mid-single-digits; consumer sales will be soft. Entertainment & Devices is seen declining in the low-single-digits ahead of the Xbox One launch. Capex is expected to keep growing thanks to Azure investments. Shares -6.4% AH.

    the problem with windows 8 is not the price.

    the problem is metro and the delusion at top levels of management that metro is not the problem, but rather that it's stupid slow learning customers that are the problem.

  • T-Mobile USA (TMUS +4.2%) spikes higher as Bloomberg reports the company will announce at tomorrow's annual meeting it added postpaid subs in Q2, breaking a long string of sub losses months ahead of plan. T-Mobile's iPhone 5 launch is undoubtedly a big reason why; Kantar Worldpanel thinks the launch helped the iPhone's U.S. share rise 350 bps Y/Y to 41.9% in the March-May period. [View news story]
