Intuit (INTU $45.68) - Potential share loss. Analyst noted that comments by
H&R Block (HRB $37.20) suggest they may be taking share from TurboTax. HRB
stated its users accounted for 41% of the increase in Federal e-files
through 2/14, greater than expected given their historic mkt. share closer
to 30%. HRB also stated its e-returns were up 123% thru 2/14, comparing
favorably to INTU's 49% increase through 1/31, although Jim noted INTU's
increase may have accelerated in Feb. Equal-weight by Jim Macdonald given
valuation and concerns about potential fallout from new TurboTax copy
gee, you got me, you're just too smart for me. I state it's a fact i haven't pirated their software, but you obvisouly know people better than they know themselves. I must have blocked it out of my memory, yeah that's it you ignorant f#$k. And I am a true blue republican, as my sister and i always said, we were raised "right." the only remotely intelligent thing you ever said was safecast isn't spyware as it has never been shown to be (just because something is instrusive doesn't make it spyware, just bad software).
but that's one of those opinion thingies you are clueless about.
your ignorance is staggering. here's some investment advice, sell your stocks and BUY A CLUE!
i hope to god you don't do anything important in this world, because you live on assumptions, and make really bad ones.
god i love the ignore button!!!!!!!!!
<<Then use them.>>
<<Why are you here?>>
To let Intuit and everyone else know why I am not buying (Not copying, I always buy.) Intuit's products. This IS a service to any current or potential INTU shareholder (like myself).
Also, to dissuade any other software company from mimicking Intuit's activation fiasco.
"you see what you want to see..."
Check the mirror buddy. You couldn't be any more wrong in my case. I have no skin in either company (other than having purchased INTU products). I have no stock position in INTU (or HRB or any other company in the sector) at all.
I am a formally very happy INTU customer who is pissed as hell at their current practices. I'm still fuming from my experiences with their new "schemes" this weekend.
You think I WANT this crap? Yeah right. I'd have been perfectly happy to go on using their software (that I have legally purchased and registered) just as I have every year.
You on the other hand (I'd bet plenty on this) are so obviously an INTU long that you'll say anything to try and defend their practices.
Not true. I have been critical of INTUs implementation with their activation scheme. I am a shareholder but I also know they messed up a bit. Where I disagree with most of you anti-Intuit people is your argument.
They are doing the right thing. They just used the wrong technology. I also see they have now officially apologized and said they are changing it next year. What else do you people want?
Let me guess, to copy their software for free?
That's my point Mr. Calvin.
<<Nothing Intuit does even comes close. To justify Block's sleazy missteps >>
Inuit has made me WANT to use products sold by HRB and Microsoft, instead of Intuit's products. That's pretty sleazy. (I was perfectly happy with Inuit until this year.)
