  • BTW - I bought UAL a long time ago but I think Spirit may be a better airline to own. I did trade back into TWTR this week because I do think they will get taken over. But I've had bad luck with that stock in the past. GOOG is a natural for them but…
  • Thanks, Circle. What are you thinking on earnings reports. I'm expecting them to be better than forecasts and I expect Apple to blow the doors off estimates and give a positive outlook going forward. Cook is learning quickly now how to deal with Wal…
  • I've been on a wild ride on Baidu but am staying with it as I think it goes top $250. Still have Apple and it's still so badly undervalued. Took a shot at ICPT too and that's been a trip. I love celgene. One nice stock I love is BX. Pays and 8% divi…
  • Too many positive outlooks on Apple now to keep me out for long. So I bought back the small position I sold. I also went to redeem my $100 gift card at the mall store at lunch time yesterday and couldn't believe how crowded that store was on a dead …
  • Yeah. I swapped out 500 shares of Apple for it late yesterday. Apple is in a funk right now.
  • Charlie - best of luck with the book.
  • I'm getting tempted to buy Wynn. It took a nice dip today. Missed the boat on this when it dipped to $100. It's got great cash flow and a stronger economy probably pushes it up 40-50% in the next 12-15 months.
  • I took a 22% gain on Twitter and traded right out of it. I don't trust that stock. I completely buy the theory that the world cup drove up the user base and that it's transient users who probably joined but will go silent. I also don't know where th…
  • BTW Charlie - I had posted a few days ago that I thought a good earnings report would drive Twitter into the 50's. I had planned to buy 1,000 shares but then I got the call on the company investment to keep myself from getting diluted and I didn't w…
  • Charlie, I'd have bought more of Twitter but I had made a much bigger investment today. When my partners and I sold out we each bought back a small stake in the new company. They made an acquisition today and I upped my investment so that I would…
  • Did anyone buy Twitter. I bought 600 shares before the earnings announcement. Now I'm kicking myself for not having bought more. I simply used logic. Dick Costolo was scheduled to be on CNBC just as the earnings were do out. No way is he showing up …
  • I don't understand how Amazon gets away with comments like this: **Amazon blamed the second quarter loss due to the large number of new investments it had made. On the earnings call, CFO Tom Szkutak said, "The increase in capital expenditures ref…
  • You made a great move there Rob. I almost bought simply because Trump was on CNBC and said he bought at $19. A good stock is always going to get back to its IPO price. I think FB will double from here within 18 months. Twitter - I don't know. It may…
  • Charlie, You can't just buy Apple. There are some great stocks that have a ways to go. Facebook, Baidu, even Yahoo as it may be gobbled up by Alibaba. Apple's solid but you're probably looking at a cap that's only 10-15% higher then its current p…
  • I never bought Amazon but if I did I'd have done it on momentum and got out just before any earnings release. Another wider than expected loss and a projected $810 million loss for the next quarter. I couldn't believe the jump in the stock on an ann…
  • Because he wasn't - at least with respect to stock price. It sold off to $388. I actually thought they were politely in his face on that interview. What I wish though is that when he said - Apple is not keeping up with the market growth - one of the…
  • Forgot to put the link in that last psot. http://finance.yahoo.com/video/analyst-cautious-apple-214400162.html
  • This guy is just as negative as he can be on Apple. He doesn't note that the stock trades at a multiple that is 4x removed from the S&P, doesn't acknowledge that they've already bought back almost 100 million shares, thinks the future pipeline o…
  • Wasn't Gillis the guy that said AAPL would crash because the carriers would be diminishing subsidies. He strikes me as a guy that tries to predict and then shape a stocks fall and he goes after the stocks that would give him the most publicity and t…
  • I go more by analyst estimates. Most of the time they are within a few pennies of actual earnings. But I do agree that their future forecasts are bad and they are constantly adjusting them but then again companies give different data sometimes as qu…
  • If the S&P was trading at an outlandish multiple - say 25X earnings like it was in 1987 then I'd agree with him on a massive correction. But it's not trading at anything like that and interest rates are not going to rise much anytime soon becaus…
  • It's impossibkle to understand Wall Street at times. I viewed the IBM-Apple announcement as a big deal, totally unanticipated by Wall street analysts and with huge new market capabilities for both companies. A true win-win. I viewed Microsoft, Black…
  • IBM's stock is also jumping and I'm glad when I see things like this. It means hedge funds don't have all the news ahead of time. This is actually a huge news item. It means Apple is going after the business world with the most serious business part…
  • Ever follow Joe Bastardi in weather. Every storm is going to be the worst ever according to him. He's already forecasting winters 5 years out. 30" snowstorms are a dime a dozen with him. But people will remember the one time he's right and forget th…
  • Financials look to rally next. Maybe its time to buy Goldman, Citi, Chase etc.
  • You'd probably be under mandatory evacuation on any of the barrier islands or gulf front lots if you had a situation in which a hurricane was coming in and that's really the only way you'd get bad flooding. Heavy rain doesn't do it - at least not on…
  • Circle, It's the Florida panhandle across to Corpus Christi that is the big hurricane threat in the gulf. Very few storms tend to move NE or east into the west coast of Florida because of the nature of storms to move north, NW or west with prevai…
  • Guys, this is a permanent move but it's 2 years out. I just got back notice from my lawyer down there that the title on the property is as clean as anything he's ever seen so my due diilligence on the land is now complete. The builder has already ha…
  • Houdini, thanks for your concern. All is good here. I've sold my business so that had me very pre-occupied. Car wise - I had the SL 550 and S550, both are 2013's and I love them and I re-upped my GL lease to a 2014. That truck is almost as silky …
  • If you need a comfortablle third row the LX470 or LC will be better than the new GX. If you want a quiet silky smooth ride either Lexus will beat the LC - not that the latter is not smooth but Toyota goes to extremes when it comes to quiet and smoot…
  • Inside Lexus.com confirmed these are the changes along with night vision and a few others for the LX470 a while back. So it would seem they are a natural for the TLC as well. Anyone know if they are thinking about a dvd entertainment system for the …
  • In my town you see one everywhere you turn. At my son's baseball game last week I counted 7 of them (LX and TLC) out of about 20 cars and suv's. Big sellers here in NJ and the more I look at the riverrock green the more I think it's THE color for th…
  • If you're used to Lexus luxury and service than go with the Lexus over the TLC. It's simply a TLC plus and certainly has the rugged look and feel. If it has a nakamichi stereo you'll like that more than the TLC stereo system. It also has the raising…
  • Lexus has a GX470 coming out in January 2003 in the $45-50k range. Early reviews is that it will be a great riding truck - maybe best of them all. Edmunds has already done such a review. Why don't you see if you can cut a deal with Lexus to hold the…
  • Runs fast in the LX470 also. It's also the only fault of that truck. Great automotive breed but needs some help from Rolex or Concord on time.
  • In the LX470 I'm averaging 16-17 mpg. That's a pretty good mix of city and highway and much better than I expected. Plus when I'm on the highway it's pretty much 65-75 mph. The past Cruiser model was in the 12-14 mpg range. Funny thing about this tr…
  • I doubt there are many people who want a superlux truck as a big as a Sequoia. The LX470/Landcruiser is just the right size. I also doubt owners of SUV's that as are reliable as these will want to roll the dice with the Range Rover given its histori…
  • That's funny because the annual sales of both is more than double what you say it is and Range Rover is praying for 10,000 sales a year. Now please answer me why Toyota wants to move away from such a rich customer segment. If you want to be serious…
  • Your logic is what makes no sense. Toyota is in business to sell the most cars it can for the highest price. Did you ever check the sticker price of the previous model and the demo group who bought it. Both are virtually unchanged. Do you know of an…
  • That makes a lot of sense. Build a great brand name and then kill it so you can bring it back in an inferior way and sell a fraction of the volume it now sells. So what's next - Lexus kills off the LS430?
