Buy Now!!!!!



Opportunities like this do not come often.

One must take advantage of them when they do.

Apple stock keeps plummeting.

We just sold at a near record peak.

But now the market has over reacted.

Buy now and keep buying all the way down.

Look at the balance sheet.  It is so obvious.

Cash on hand.
Debt service cost.

This stock is so undervalued right now.

If it drops below $400 then just buy as much as you can tolerate as a portion of your portfolio.

This stock can only go up.
I would keep buying all the way up to high $400’s.

Then depending on what is happening we can reassess.

They have to do a stock purchase at this price.
The cost of money is so cheap they would be crazy not to.

I’m writing Carl another letter.

He never listens.

When will Blockbuster finally Just Die?


When will Blockbuster finally Just Die?
I don’t know, but the brick and mortar just cannot hold out too much longer.

We have been ringing that bell for years, and we still are.
It is painful to watch them try.

It is like watching fax machines taking their final breaths for the last decade . . . It is just annoying.

Anyway.
Netflix.
What more could you ask for?

Grand opportunity.
They understand what went wrong.

They are smarter, more flexible, and will create compelling content and sign more streaming distribution deals and embed in other devices through App architecture.

How far will this go?

Who knows.

Again,
this is the simple mix of some equity and hit hard some long term calls.
Then do not be too greedy, take some of your cash back for redeployment.

Their will be more opportunities in the future.

These undervalued stocks are a great gamble right now.

Have fun.

Will you share your profits with me?

Who Cares Who is Using FaceBook? Just Buy Some.


FaceBook.

Who knows what will happen in the long run.

They say teens are not using like they used to?
Well, who knows.  A lot of people are using this thing still.

They are building out their advertising tools.
They were too cumbersome before and they are smart enough to get more revenue from mobile.
They must be.

The alternative is to bet that they are to dumb, and they are not, and this is too easy to do.

People have to experiment and try the ad tools as the demographic advertising and mobile extension is too appealing not to try.

This will create revenue.

Buy some equity positions and just hold onto them.

Also buy heavy into open calls.

It broke $20, by early spring we should see the results of the new ad tools.

Make sure your chains extend that far.

Hold onto the equity for the long haul.

And get some sweet cash from your calls.

Apple Stock – When is enough enough?



OK.  I have had enough.  Have you?

I have been cost averaging to Apple stock since its IPO.

This run is just getting silly.

Tim cannot keep this up.
This is simply legacy gains from Steve.

We have to suck it up.

Steve belongs to the ages now.

Let’s make life easy.

If Apple hits $700, I’m selling all of it.  Decades of fabulous gains.  Time to pay some taxes and take profits.

This money needs to live somewhere else at $700/share!

What do you think?

Ugh, Now We Have to Plug Yahoo!


You got it.

I’ve never been a Yahoo fan.
Their stupid  directory, and submission fees.
Bungled products, endless mismanagement.

Thankfully when people screw things up and there is enough cash available a smart person can fix things.

Then we can see a more reasonable valuation for this company.

This one of those, I want to believe the Board is smart enough to direct management to create value again.

There are a lot of ways Yahoo can do this.

And they will.

We don’t know if this is going to be a good long term hold or not.

So this does hurt me, but it is the right thing to do so I am goign to suggest it:
Buy some Yahoo equity, and a bunch of really long term calls.  As Long as you can get.

Unless they are morons this stock must go up in value.

If it does, take back some of your gains and deploy elsewhere, and leave some in the game as well.

AMEX – We Told You and We’ll Tell You Again


Companies like Amex just prosper.

Hey – they brought us the Black Card.
If they can sell that thing, and take the highest merchant fees around with oppressive batches and payback terms,
These people are so smart let’s hitch another ride . . .

It still has headroom.

Remember:

???

Same story.

There is still room in this economy for this stock to grow.

This time, buy some more calls, again long chains.

Don’t be greedy, we don’t know how long it will last and we don’t have time to keep checking back and telling you what to do.

So you are on your own sometimes.
For that reason alone, don’t be too greedy!!!

If you want a little equity go for it.
If you bought the last time, just hold on a little longer to that buy.

Take some profit from the dummies who are selling this stock now.

Life is so sweet when opportunity presents itself. Don’t miss out . . .


Life is so sweet.

Apple keeps performing.

IT IS STILL UNDERVALUED!!

Keep cost averaging in until it is overvalued.

The consumer electronic products are so strong, and margins so good.

Ride this wave to healthy returns!!!!
