  • Invest In Winners, Not Whiners - Cramer's Mad Money (1/27/15) [View article]
    My story on HZNP. A Seeking Alpha article described insider buying in the company, so I bought 1000 shares at $3.50/share due to that and a few other reasons. I put in a stop loss at $3 as it seemed really speculative, and it fell to $2.50 and I was glad to have gotten out. Fast forward now a little over a year and I see it's trading at $16/share, and I don't feel so smart anymore.

  • Google, Cablevision shake up cellular [View news story]
    Google Drive may have debuted at $1.99/mo for 1TB of storage, but that's no longer the case.
    Google Drive is free for the first 15GB, Dropbox is free for the first 2GB.
    Both Google Drive and Dropbox charge $9.99/month for 1TB, but Dropbox also has a discounted annual 1TB plan for $8.25/month and Dropbox has syncing features that Google Drive lacks.

    I expect Google to come in with a lower cost, minimal support, more limited in scope version. If it does well, they'll ramp it up further. Still, they're a powerful name with a great image and will be an immediate factor in this space.

    As to the Cablevision wi-fi calls only, that's so limiting that for people who actually use their phone to make and receive voice calls, it's not going to fly.

  • Dividend Growth Stock Overview: Caterpillar Inc. [View article]
    I've done monthly stock purchase plans with CAT, AFL, DIS along with Computershare and Amstock. These plans are really set up for long term investing as they make it difficult to sell the shares and for Computershare in particular the fees were a bit high to move the shares to a broker. I'd recommend looking into Sharebuilder instead as you can buy a basket of stocks for a single monthly fee and they're a good broker too. I also don't see why you couldn't do this in an IRA too.

  • Hudson City Bancorp Still Languishing; It's A Sell [View article]
    As a customer of M&T bank, I'm interested in this story. This is the first I've heard about this possible merger. M&T is a very competent bank with very responsive customer service.

  • Verizon launches $15/month service for cars [View news story]
    if only they'd provide in car WiFi, this would be a winner; as it is, it seems more a competitor to AAA.

    Qualcomm is an innovative company with solid tested management. Leaders often have roadblocks thrown in their path, but I expect QCOM to steer a good course into the future.

  • Duke Energy declares $0.795 dividend [View news story]
    Utilities were the best performing sector in 2014, and their average p/e of 19 is higher than the s&p500 p/e of 18.5. So there is nothing safe about putting money in a utility to park it.

  • Pfizer's Immunology Pipeline Has Few Bright Spots Besides Xeljanz [View article]
    This is a very technical article, but the gist of it is that Pfizer's pipeline is very thin. I am long Pfizer, but my take on them is that they're primarily a marketing, not R&D, company. Financial engineering and M&A is more their forte.
