  • Apple Is A Luxury Brand And That Is The Problem [View article]
    Apple has built their company by offering higher end hardware. They continue to innovate and will continue to enjoy success by sticking by their business model. Remember, Apple offered the 5C which was down market by their standards and the sales weren't great to say the least. The author seems to be saying that Apple won't continue to be successful because they will continue to cater to the market which................u... them successful. Dana, you seem to be out of your league here or you don't seem to be too knowledgeable about what Apple does. By the way, the live feed crashed due to the immense interest in the event. Not many companies create this kind of excitement. Disclosure: I use a Samsung phone running Android but love Apple products too.

  • Yield On Cost: A Vitally Important Consideration For Retired Investors [View article]
    "The prudent retired investor is not merely interested in how much dividend income their equity portfolio currently provides, they are equally interested in their dividend income growing and by how much. This is why I like the term growth yield over yield on cost. The prudent retired investor recognizes that in order to keep up with future inflation, the dividend income component of their portfolio needs to increase faster than inflation."
    I feel that a lot of people who are commenting are missing Chuck's point. It's only by knowing where we began can we truly track where we are going (and how our portfolio is doing).

  • Galaxy Note 4 And Galaxy S6: What Will Samsung Deliver? [View article]
    Opta-core? It's Octa-core (denoting 8 cores) and this alone currently has no speed advantage over the current 800 series quad-core Qualcomm chips. This is due in part to the chips compatibility with the LTE spec. Nothing truly outstanding about the S5 to differentiate it from the iPhone? I'll leave that one up to personal opinion. Please due more research before publishing.

  • Will Arena Seize An Opportunity? [View article]
    OK, obviously loony booby has nothing to contribute. Disagree with Spencer's statements?.....fine. Just keep your replies focused on Arena's fundamentals and away from personal jabs, this is an INVESTING site after all. Spencer has been very forthcoming in the past regarding Arena's lackluster efforts and performance and he has concisely laid out the reasons why Arena has a brighter future ahead of it.

    Actually, if gold was doing well I would be worried because the overall market would probably be faring much worse! Like any hedge, something has to go down when something else goes up.
