  • Let's Give Thanks For Gold Being On Sale  [View article]
    Oh, I've been here, just not posting. I've been watching Avi's predictions in his Nov. 10 two part article play out, and waiting for prices to head toward that lower low, at this point, it looks like in early 2015, or not.

  • Intel Earns Green Light To Double  [View article]
    I made my first venture into stock options based on your Intel articles and was pleased with the results. I've been missing your writing the last several months.

    These transcriptions are terrible. Are they done by a machine? Does no one check them before they are posted?

  • Intel: Major Catalyst Coming On July 22  [View article]
    You said, " I believe that on this webcast Intel will be announcing its next generation micro-server and networking infrastructure parts based on the Silvermont core known as Avoton and Rangeley, respectively."
    I don't know if this happened, but the lack of significant response in stock price yesterday and today is causing the first crack in my confidence in your reporting.

  • Dividend Stocks And Higher Rates ('94 Example)  [View article]
    Interesting and somewhat reassuring. Thanks for the research and article. So, the present lagging of div stocks is a correction for the previous outperformance, '09 thru present? As well as investors (mistakenly?) thinking bond prices will hold up better in a rising rate environment than div stocks?

  • Intel Beats AMD At Its Own Game... Does It Matter?  [View article]
    How about a little acronym primer for us non=geeks?
    CPU= Central Processing unit?
    GPU= Graphics Processing Unit?
    GPGPU= ?
    APU= ?
    "HSA"= ?
    512 GCN = ?

    Of all the INTC articles (and there are many!), I find yours to draw the best tie lines between tech talk and stock evaluation. Keep up the good work. Also, when reading others' articles, even if I don't read the entire article and all the comments, I always scan the comment section for your comments.

  • Total SA: A Mixed Bag Dividend Play  [View article]
    North and Walter,
    Thank you for the replies and information. I talked to Fidelity and got a confusing answer. Their specialist called me back, but I haven't had a chance to return his call yet. Walter, I suspect you are right about the IRA account; I've read something like that before. I guess I'll either put up with the 4.25% effective dividend (which isn't that bad), or switch to CVX for my energy allocation.

  • Total SA: A Mixed Bag Dividend Play  [View article]
    northhills24, I own TOT in Fidelity IRA account, and in April they took exactly 30% of the dividend for "foreign tax paid", leaving me with about a 4.25% net. Do you think I should inquire about the 15% vs. the 30%, or is this the penalty for owning the stock in an IRA?

  • Mobile Manufacturers Part I: Killer Competition  [View article]
    I get articles concerning MSFT and INTC and there are so many I only get to read a few. This one looked interesting, and was. I wonder, since in the mobile phone sales chart above, the "other" segment is the largest of the smartphones at 3Q 2012 and also accounts for the largest increase since 1Q 2012; could you list two or three of the companies with the greatest sales in this "other" segment?

  • Create Your Own MLP Fund For Higher Returns  [View article]
    Is anyone else concerned that the payout ratios on all these MLP's are greater than 100% and that they seem to stay at this level for months, if not years; or am I missing some factor that makes this not as much of a concern as it would be with common stocks?
