  • Is Intel Stock Worth An Investment Right Now? [View article]
    It appears that this group of comments denigrates the financial/investment perspective of Seeking Alpha to Senior HS English arguments of dangling parsnips.
    Did he not not say not or not?Who cares? Plus INTC into medical IoT big data is future significant and not irrelevant.
    Stay long INTC as am I.
    PS HAIN per Cramer is likely candidate for organic takeover. Nice 10% move today.
    What/who is on INTC buying agenda?
    Any input that makes sense and is reasonable will NOT be of NO interest to NOT a few SA readers with FCF.

    Stone Fox Capital,
    You still have not provided the info/issues I raised last evening as follows:

    I found a few major statistical comparative/relative elements missing from this well presented piece.
    What share of the total food/grocery industry (Sales $ ??) does Organics provide?
    What share of the Organics/grocery industry does WFM constitute in both parts?
    At what rate is organics as "crucial" part of food/grocery industry growing;
    Both current and projected next 3-5 years.

  • The Simple Case For Intel [View article]
    Having lunched with John Templeton a few times in the 1980s & 1990s, he like Warren were like many new auto drivers. They don't have to build an engine to know that pressing the gas pedal will make it move.
    I know that carburetors were replaced by good fuel injectors and cars are partly getting better MPG today because of that advance.
    I wired "program" boards for IBM in the 1960s and could change a circuit board with the best of them as I did in Poughkeepsie. Then I went to Southboro at Data General to structure an AV program for sales of minis to compete with said IBM's System 3 so my need to understand nm is NOT crucial to make an investment in INTC to get plus $$$. My neurogenesis speaks for itself in my having bought ONVO in Feb 2013 for $4- and selling this 3D liver tissue printer for $10+ earlier this year and I am not studying biology again either to have gotten more plus $$$ there. My post graduate studies were in finance and that's where learning from $ mistakes mean more than an nm comprehension as does a CEO's track record.
    I will not mistake change for progress and nm competition merely reflects change in the technology not necessarily company mission.
    e.g. I wrote about "online banking in 1970s but did not feel comfortable enough to even use that service/technology until 2009.

  • A Few Reasons To Invest In Sierra Wireless For The Long Run [View article]
    SWIR was a Motley pick that I 'connected' with right away and am profitably pleased in both shares and Leaps.
    When something like SWIR is GOOD, you do not have to say a lot to justify considering it. I now am considering more as some of my less future GOOD stuff provides me with some FCF.

  • The Simple Case For Intel [View article]
    This is so much better than the technical dissertations by the nm engineer crowd.
    See "Intel Is Finally At Qualcomm's Doorstep" by Alex Cho and my comment which follows:
    {{{Since INTC went from $20 in Dec 2012 to almost $35 today, I am happy. That most of all this technical competitiveness detail is overlooked by pricing results. The simplicity of investor advisories is netted down to Buy Low and Sell High. The devil may be in this technical nm derivatives but, the 75% growth is clearly too good to be so lost in proverbial search for Utopia of whatever. Remember the struggles to design a pen that could write underwater and the Russians just used a lead pencil.

    If Seeking Alpha is for helping to make us all to become electronic whizzes, then I need another blog area to spew and hear $ info.
    Keep your RFQs and specs to Popular Science. Just go watch the movie Turbo and the taco truck shop center.
    Remember LUCK is Living Using Correct Knowledge; being too technical is $ distracting. }}}
    This piece is writ so much weller than Cho's and mispelling is my intent here.

  • Update: J.C. Penney Earnings [View article]
    I have been amazed over the past many decades as to WHY the sideline experts miss so much of an upside movement B4 they commit to making/taking a stance of "BUY" "SELL" or "HOLD" probably a lack of cojones or inherent indecision.
    Any early-in investor today is hearing all about the GOOGLE decade of overpriced BS by sideline pundits. I am long the following issues simply because I am willing to take the risk I understand & minimize through broad diversification, options & commitment % or $: lower case = losses or waiting 4 goto up.

    AA, RAD, JCP, DIS, IMAX, INFN, INVN, INTC, BAC, WFC, WSM, HD, QLIK, Clne, HAIN, MDRX, Arna, BSX, F, HIMX, ONVO, SD, SUNE, SZYM, SWIR, Tcs, Tts, WETF, GSAT, CHK, GES, KO, KR, LINE, SODA, Wprt, Nuan, AXP, DISCA, NGG, SPY +/-
    TTWO, LNKD, YHOO, SD, Vicl, et al plus 3 equity mutuals - TGMFX RAGTX FOOLX.
    Yes I seem to enjoy my own personal mutual fund across 4 IRAs + 2 regular.
    PS I am too active for most folks and advisors or managed programs. It's the mental activity of acting, tracking & picking all these stocks that help keep me in neurogenesis. (growing new brain cells at my age) Plus my resistance training this AM included many reps and sets on at least ten weight machines at the gym.

    I found a few major statistical comparative/relative elements missing from this well presented piece.
    What share of the total food/grocery industry (Sales $ ??) does Organics provide?
    What share of the Organics/grocery industry does WFM constitute in both parts?
    At what rate is organics as "crucial" part of food/grocery industry growing;
    Both current and projected next 3-5 years.
    Then I may better evaluate at what price to put in a GTC order to buy some WFM.

    In WFMs current state, they remain the Leader, probable major innovator but, their moat has sprung a major leak. Their competitiors are already through the portico so that CEO Mackey has some more focus needed to raise the drawbridge.
    If this isn't WFM rennaisance time, jousting qualification denies WMT entry.

  • J.C. Penney: Negative Traffic Trends May Prevent Revenues From Topping $14 Billion [View article]
    "Ron Johnson's leadership" into oblivion has ceased and the trend of customer flow is increasing per some folk. Those folk be more open minded to the potential turnaround that is not yet fully distillated. I use distillate when drinkers seem 2B in charge of neg opinions.
    JCP story reads similar to RAD and both are making "progress" where the usual mistake in Wall St. is looking at change as progress instead of vice versa.
    Turn-a-rounds aren't likely to occur without bumps caused by naysayers giving licks instead of taking licks like is deserved by many.

  • RiteAid: Ready To Soar [View article]
    Raclay1,
    I use E*Trade and have been doing all 3 levels of option trading with my IRAs and Roth IRAs with them.
    So Leaps are merely treated as long term calls.
    Good luck with your future trades.

  • J.C. Penney Company Inc. Heads In The Right Direction [View article]
    Like Shakespeare said in title, "Much Ado About Nothing" as this applies to Sterne Agee and most alleged stock pundits' commentaries.
    Since I previously made meteorologist forecast comparisons as being questionable too, I need say no more.
    Enjoy your weekend and the continuing BULL market.

  • Peugeot: The Making Of A Turnaround [View article]
    Of no interest to me now, given JCP and F success to date with my invested $$$.
    I never liked their body styles and knew little of reliability of their vehicles.
    I'll stay with RAD B4 Peugeot

  • Sierra Wireless: This Tech Stock Is Set To Scale New Heights [View article]
    Times and numbers do change. When I was employed by IBM in the 1960s, the great forecasting error/underguess was the 305 RAMAC of fifty units for the world.
    When over 2,000 units were sold, they determined that a new forecast was needed.

    So is $17 trillion really that big or are the new Colorado pot smokers making new forecasts? My personal IoT by the year 2020 will not include any of our following gizmos and electronic dullards: 55 Inch LED TV, or any TV, LG microwave, LG refrigerator, any PC, our Pantech cell phones, Next Pad, Nook, GE self clean ovens, Instant Hot dispenser and HVAC.
    All of these items were purchased with the expectation of long life usage. Plus I ain't George Jetson needy; just a NetFlix watcher of old TV shows without all of today's unending commercials and alleged "reality" shows. Bah! FLO & Gecko!

  • Here's Why Investors Should Continue Avoiding Whole Foods Market [View article]
    It is time to STOP all WFM WMT commentary.
    They are customer intelligence disparate.
    Quality produce and product comparisons are inane.
    There are better things to discuss than repetitious blather.
    WMT is in a funk for reasons beyond organics.
    WFM is just not alone any longer in quality organics.
    Shopping is getting more like stock market due diligence and
    indigestion happens as do losses; but WFM still has Mackey.
