Trade Alert – Earnings recap and adding to Qualcomm

Earnings season is on full blast and let’s run through last night’s reports. First, Facebook reported another quarter of strong growth with top and bottom line both showing expansion. Mobile ads were a “bit light” according to most of the sellsider’s models, but those same estimates had been moving upward all quarter, so that makes [...]

Double arm transplant at Johns Hopkins; Or why it’s time to look start investing in the Medical Revolution

Amazon’s up big after another strong quarterly report, proving our long-held thesis that the company at some point can and will turn on the gross margin and earnings machine in its model. Facebook’s reporting tonight. Feet to fire I’d rather be long than short into the report, as indeed I am. Gulp, as always. Meanwhile, [...]

Trade Alert – Trading one tech supplier for another (and some updated analysis on Apple)

I’m not changing my stance on Apple. I’m holding onto a large common stock position with huge gains that I’ve owned for years and I’m sitting on losses from the recent call options I’d scaled into. I do expect that Apple can and will deliver nearly $60 in earnings this year, and I expect that [...]

Trade Alert and Latest Positions – Selling calls down, getting less aggressive

Great time on the honeymoon, but long story short — 20 hours of plane delays to leave El Paso, lost luggage, flu-like symptoms almost the whole time we were gone, and lots of sleep, rest, relaxation and purification while in the rain forests of remote Costa Rica. It’s always great to get back on US [...]

Reminder as to why we own Apple

A dollar saved is a dollar earned

It’s been about six months since we initiated short positions in two dollar store stocks:  Dollar Tree (DLTR) and Dollar General (DG).  No one, at the time, liked my thesis.  In fact, as I wrote in June, many of the fund managers I spoke with tried to talk me out of it…Well, they’re eating their [...]
