  • Apple: Focus On This Trend [View article]
    How much of the "$153 Billion" is off shore and, therefore, not available to use for buybacks and dividends?

  • Vale: Playing With Fire [View article]
    I've ben hearing the same old bullish song for 3+ years now and have been telling all (correctly, I might add) that they have been and are wrong. If you've been drinking the Vale, PNR, Brazil Kool Ade for the last 3 years you have already missed most of one of the great bull markets in history. Vale has lost over 75% of its value in that timeframe. If you're buying now, for the first time, you may do okay; however, anyone that has been "averaging down" for the past 3+ years will never see anywhere close to the gains they would have received by simply investing in a major index, never mind investing in really good stocks. Hoping you guys are right for a change.

  • GE to defend Alstom deal at EU hearing [View news story]
    Good answer richjoy! I would add the other obvious variable: there is no way this deal will go through as it exists now. The EU are little more than socialist extortionists. They will make GE and its stockholders (Note: not the BOD or Immelt who will still get big bonuses) pay dearly for this deal to be completed.

    As for Glen, if you don't like long-term capital gains, why did you invest? If you have a ton of shares, pay the taxes and be happy, they aren't that bad!

  • Is HCP The REIT Buy Of The Year? [View article]
    I've owned this stock twice and sold it at decent profits via exercised covered calls in an IRA. I see as many reasons not to buy now as to be bullish. I suggest covered calls, especially in tax-free accounts for anyone contemplating buying here. Good Luck!

    If this company is a bigger in waste than owning the TCAP stock has been it will be a great deal!

  • Ensco - More Fleet Disruptions Sink Sector Unfairly [View article]
    The good news for me is that this week I'll be buying back my third set of covered calls in ESV this year for 10 cents on the dollar in a tax free IRA. The bad news is my cost for the stock is ~$50/share. It looks like it will be some time next year before we see a sustained up move.

  • Investors Can Expect More Downside For Ensco, Despite A Resilient Performance [View article]
    As I've said repeatedly on this stock (and been proven right): "Covered calls or get out"!!!

  • Goldcorp's cash haul, credit line expansion spark M&A speculation [View news story]
    Given this "close relationship" among management of both companies, not forget their history of greed and mismanagement, what are the chances that the big shot insiders will come off a lot better than shareholders in any deal????

  • BMO generally bullish on gold miners [View news story]
    Too bad all of these optimistic "price targets," even if reached, will leave the vast majority of gold investors with huge losses.

  • Apple's Debt-Funded Repurchases: Terrific Or Terrible? [View article]
    You're spot on there rach07. Cramer picks some good stocks with sometimes good advice but his "get on and get off" timing needs a lot of work. Six months ago he told everyone to dump PaloAlto ~$100, last week he is bullish ~$175!!!

  • General Electric Financial Efficiency Ratios Have Degraded From Last Quarter [View article]
    Great job Mike. This guy is a walking/talking non sequitur. He seems to think he can publish 3 or 4 comments a week on various stocks and present viable, accurate data and advice. So far that is no go on GE; e.g., telling you that there is "no upside to the stock, but buy anyway for a ~3.5 % dividend…" that won't be raised for 18 months!!??

  • EU to warn GE on Alstom power deal [View news story]
    If I still owned GE (sold it when they refused to raise the dividend, but will raise executive pay and bonuses), I'd be happy they have a chance to not own Alston. However, Immelt and his bunch of "yes men" in the BOD will probably bend over and try to turn a bad deal into an awful deal.

  • Ensco May Be Undervalued Through The Dividend Discount Model [View article]
    What a novel idea: Let's everyone here NOT buy any stock that is getting pounded this year and will make less money next year!
