  • Netflix 2014 Outlook Update After Predicting Accurately Twice [View article]
    Surplus: I thought about asking you why you insist on badgering the author about taking a position. But then I read your profile and decided you are a jerk and not worth my time.

    Thanks, Siddhartha, for spending your valuable time and humbly providing an analytical approach to results this quarter. This is a challenging time in the market. May we all proceed cautiously and wisely.

  • Market Overdue For A Bounce: At Least In Some Sectors [View article]
    Thanks as usual, Bret, for your measured approach to investing. I have waited patiently for TRN's stock price to derail, which it finally has. Picked up some dented cans at $34.90 last week and now it is an even better bargain at $33.68 as I type. I'll pick up more if it hits $32.

    My other interest lately is playing the "Gatsby Portfolio." So today I bought LUX on the news that the co-CEO can't play in the same sandbox with the family founder. Stock is down 9%. Anybody have any thoughts on LUX? It's only followed by one analyst (source: Yahoo). ....I am tired of all the media darlings right now and am looking for stable companies that aren't as well-tracked.

    So as to even the score and not appear a braggart, last week's best idea was seriously premature. My new position in HAR is already down 10%.

  • Yours To Discover: How Discover Financial Services Is A Direct Play On The U.S. Recovery [View article]
    Hi Peter, I've held DFS for just over a year and am up 28%. Sometimes I think about cashing in, but good articles like yours keep me on course.

    A question: do you know if all student loan lenders are bound by the same terms? The student loan "industry" has taken an appalling turn in this country. We are saddling students with outrageous debt, thereby hampering their ability to become financially stable.

  • Seal Your Portfolio With RPM International [View article]
    Thank you for the great article. I've had RPM on my watch list for a while. The author's analysis and all the positive comments will help me get this off the watch list and into my portfolio soon. I like that the company's product diversification helps it perform well in many market situations.

  • Time For Yahoo To Buy The New York Times [View article]
    I read this article for what I thought would be pure entertainment value, but the idea actually has merit. What else you got up your sleeve, Dana?

  • An FDA Rejection Can Help Foster Confidence? The Compelling Case For AcelRx Pharmaceuticals [View article]
    Hi stock59: today's 18% drop on the day is a little hard to take. Maybe a good entry point for a new investor, or someone looking to add to their position. We have a worry now if this latest FDA timeline requires a cash raise. Thanks to Michael (below) for staying on top of this for us. These new drug dog and pony shows can be exacerbating.

  • Keurig Green Mountain: Short Interest Tumbles Further [View article]
    Hi Breakdown: You may have to take your lumps at some point, or just forget about it and let it ride. You're in a very illiquid trade. Try "at the money" or deep "in the money" if making money on options is your goal. You might try a pairs trade to fix this. Go long SBUX.

  • Yahoo: Is The Alibaba Run Over? [View article]
    I sold my position into strength (good for me; I stuck to my game plan), and bought back yesterday on weakness. I think this company is poised to do something brilliant, and if they don't, they are dumber than a doorknob and deserve the current valuation of zero.

    I interpret silence from the company to be Apple-like in their approach: we will be wow'ed (I "hope") when the big reveal comes. (Geez, hope is not a good trading strategy.) Wouldn't you be making your big wish list with all that money you know is coming? And after everyone gets over being giddy with the finality of it, and taxes accounted for, you do that thing that you've been planning. I will be patient a while longer to see what it is.

  • An FDA Rejection Can Help Foster Confidence? The Compelling Case For AcelRx Pharmaceuticals [View article]
    Thanks, Jason. I've done all right w. ACRX so far. Bought in around $3-something. Sold a fifth of my position at $15 and have just been riding the roller coaster since then. Waiting.... waiting. Keep writing.

  • Apple: The Way Now Open To $120 [View article]
    Has anyone reported yo mama to SA? I'm fond of hitting the "Report Abuse" button, but I think they're on to me. This kind of drivel is a real distraction to the quality of the conversations.

    Thanks to Bret as usual for a good article.

    What's the chance that ACRX stock will do what PCRX (Pacira Pharma) did? Both companies use new delivery methods for post-op pain. I was new to the biotech's in July 2012 when a surgical tech friend told me to check it out, so I didn't buy and never did. It was trading at $16. Today it's at $104. Everyone needs "the one that got away," right?
