  • My Prediction For 2013 - All Other Predictions Will Be Wrong [View article]
    Predicting the market is quite easy. I was correct last year and so will share my prediction for this year. The market is either going to up or down, with a chance that it will stay the same ;)

    Well written article and solid concept. Long all the ones you mentioned and then some.

  • Abbott (ABT) says the SEC has declared effective the Form 10 Registration Statement filed by AbbVie, its research-based pharmaceuticals business, clearing the way to spin the company out. Abbott expects to complete the separation of AbbVie on January 1, 2013, whereupon the special dividend, declared on November 28, will be distributed. [View news story]
    From Abott's site....

    "On Nov. 28, 2012, Abbott's board of directors approved the separation of AbbVie, and declared a special dividend distribution of one share of AbbVie common stock for each Abbott common share outstanding as of the close of business on Dec. 12, 2012, the record date for the distribution. Abbott expects the special dividend of AbbVie stock will be distributed on Jan. 1, 2013."

  • Apple's iCloud Upgrade: Creative Leadership Or Competitive Response? [View article]
    i think what Outsider22 wrote is spot on. IMHO, the profit made from the cloud will not only be the ease in consumer service, like that example, but also consumer retention. many users will be loath to switch to HTC/Droid/Lumia/etc once they have put so much into the iCloud, including $$ spent on apps.

  • Buy Annaly Capital For Diversification [View article]
    from reading a bunch of articles on here about NLY (look up Regarded Solutions' articles in particular) it seems that most have recommended no more than 5-7% of your portfolio.

  • Memo To Tim Cook: Do Not Split Apple Stock [View article]
    great article, awesome discussion. polarizing or not, i enjoy and learn a lot from the comments. an investor can indeed buy partial shares of AAPL on Sharebuilder, no minimum required, so i think that the 'let the small guy in' argument is a little moot.
    On the other hand, as someone who plans on being long AAPL for a few years, i think i would welcome the volatilty and panic that might come from the post split 'novice' crowd that overreacts to an article or an 'average' earnings report. I would just consider it an opportunity to add to my position.

  • 3 Lines Of Defense Against The Decline Of Dividends [View article]
    As a young investor like Tim, i look at this in the same light as my overall strategy....we have time. not every year is going to be a homerun but over time, we will score all the runs we need. and agree totally with DVK's comment. He just says it better.
