This certainly sounds plausible especially since the market hasn't show any signs that it will pull back significantly yet. The supply & transportation sector is a good indicator of this and it has only gotten busier.
This is not a surprise at all. MSFT has massively advertised every major product release as any company should be doing. How much of this advertising translate to sales is a more interesting subject to discuss.
GS seems to be doing better holding onto its gains these days. If this continues, we'll be seeing even better multiples fairly quickly.
For dead money, MSFT makes and holds on to its gains pretty well. Seems like MSFT isn't dead just yet but I do agree that MSFT is losing whatever market share it had in mobile. I recall reading an article about one of their executives lamenting how late they entered the mobile industry and how much this has hurt their chances of success.
He is merely stating the obvious. Of course this stable market won't last forever. The challenge is predicting when.
Radio shack would not be a profitable venture for MSFT. Buying them out would not be smart.
I wouldn't look at W8 as a sign of success. MSFT's other products have been far more successful.
I fully agree especially now when MSFT is on the lower pricing. This is a great buying opportunity before MSFT climbs back up.
No problem. I repost these threads because I suspect a good number of GLD investors have overlooked these issues. I don't exactly blame them either since the GLD marketing firm has done a good job keeping these issues out of sight.
XOM isn't dropping like you previously claimed either. Won't make anything shorting this.
I wish MSFT had the #2 phone spot but they don't.
It is already getting inching closer to that $350. I think the target price will be higher than $350 with good earnings.
As I feel this is still an outstanding issue of GLD, I will repost this here:
“Did anyone try calling the GLD hotline at 866-320-4053 and asking for any numerical details on GLD's insurance? I reached a State Street representative that told me to look at the prospectus but I am sure the prospectus doesn't give any numbers or percentages to how much of GLD's physical gold is insured. The prospectus only vaguely mentions HSBC holding some kind of insurance policy for GLD. This State Street representative proceeded to feign ignorance when informed of this and said they were just the "marketing agent" for GLD. What kind of marketing agent doesn't know such basic information about a product they are marketing? It seems like they are deliberately hiding information from investors.
There are not many ways for the average investor to verify GLD's physical assets since most retail investors won't even have the right to redeem their shares for physical bullions. The prospectus is full of legal writing protecting GLD organizations from any liabilities but not a single clause to protect investors from bullion lending. On top of everything, the GLD manager - State Street, has been shown to be less than trustworthy (Carina CDO, multiple instances of forex fraud). Where is the credibility in GLD?"
Your logic and reason are sound. Overall, it was a good move in any case considering the drop that happened afterwards.
Just use the ignore function. Why go out of your way to find something to be unreasonably angry about?
