    wiith SHLD having recently fallen like a rock to around $36 a share, it is now selling at a 10 year low. (so glad our leader bought a ton of it at more than double it's current price). However let's be thankful for little things in life. . SHLD is probably, for the first time in a few years, LESS than 10%.of our portfolio.

  • I had been using my iPhone 4 for 2 1/2 years without any problems. Saw larger phones popping up everywhere and wanted one. Kept hoping that Apple would make the IPhone 5s at least 5". But alas, that was not to be. I finally gave up on Apple and went for a Galaxy Note 3. After only a few hours I fell out of love with IPhone. The. Note 3 is much more fun to use even in the most simple operations. Really bright screen, and what a wonderful camera. Great pictures in low light (I never use the flash). Big bold screen. Everyone who sees my pictures. Goes Wow! The Back button (which the IPhone doesn'thave) is my favorite button on the phone. It keeps backing up one window at a time, rather than having to return to the home screen after only 1 back arrow on the IPhone. I hope for all Apple users and investors that the upcoming IPhone 6 includes a phablet size option, a back button and more fun experience.

    Today CVS. (3% of our holdings) announces that it is discontinuing selling tobacco products. The CEO and the Board of directors are responsible to do what is best for their shareholders, not what someone thinks is morally correct. The firm does over $2 billion in tobacco + who knows how many more billions in sales on all the other products sold when one comes in for a pack of smokes. We are not a socially or morally correct only fund. We are interested in making money. The CVS management does not understand that that is their mission also. If the CEO. made the decision on his own, the board should fire him. If the board consented, they should all be replaced. In any event, if I were managing our fine fund, I would dump CVS as their thinking is not in OUR best interest.
