  • It got to the point where I can't even stand to go into a Wal-Mart and I never go there anymore but today I had my propane tank from my gas grill in my car because I ran out and needed to swap it out. I had to go to Staples to get some supplies and its in the same shopping center as Walmart and since it was early about 9 am there was almost nobody at Wal-Mart so I decided to just swap the tank out at Wal-Mart. I went into the lawn and garden center and paid the lady at the register for the swap out. There was nobody else in the department so she grabbed some keys and went out with me. She opened up one of these cages where they keep the propane tanks. She said I don't know if there are any new ones in here but then said there's one more on the bottom shelf in back. So she pulls the empty tank out that is in front of the full one and turns to me and says you're going to have to get down there and get the new one out. Right away I'm thinking that's your job and was about to say something but I decided I would get it out so I could get out of that place. After I pulled it out she still stands there looking at me like I should put the empty one she pulled out back and also the empty one I brought. I just took my new tank and walked off. That is such poor customer service that I can't imagine anyone even operating like that. There are lazy people everywhere but to allow that kind of stuff to go on is just a reflection of how poor the management of this company is. Do they think people want to return after being treated like that? I don't go to Wal-Mart anymore and that is the last time I even think of exchanging my propane tank there. A horribly run business with horrible workers that they let get away with that kind of stuff.

    Datalink Corporation DTLK is a Computer-Storage Devices provider that could be an interesting play for investors. That is because, not only does the stock have decent short-term momentum, but it is seeing solid activity on the earnings estimate revision front as well.

    These positive earnings estimate revisions suggest that analysts are becoming more optimistic on DTLK’s earnings for the coming quarter and year. In fact, consensus estimates have moved sharply higher for both of these time frames over the past four weeks, suggesting that Datalink could be a solid choice for investors.

    Current Quarter Estimates for DTLK

    In the past 30 days, 1 estimate has gone higher for Datalink while none have gone lower in the same time period. The trend has been pretty favorable too, with estimates increasing from 10 cents a share 30 days ago, to 13 today, a move of 30.0%.

    Current Year Estimates for DTLK

    Meanwhile, Datalink’s current year figures are also looking quite promising, with 1 estimate moving higher in the past month, compared to no lower. The consensus estimate trend has also seen a boost for this time frame, increasing from 24 cents per share 30 days ago to 28 cents per share today, an increase of 16.7%.

    Bottom Line

    The stock has also started to move higher lately, adding 24.4% over the past four weeks, suggesting that investors are starting to take note of this impressive story. So investors may definitely want to consider this Zacks Rank #1 (Strong Buy) stock to profit in the near future.

    RATE is expensive

    Right. RATE is nothing more than another Google or Facebook. What are you thinking? This is the future. The news about the sale announced yesterday is huge news. Just imagine what they can do now. Incidently, that investigation was about the financial reporting and is over and it turned out to be basically a non-event, so you can cross that off your list. I hope you're not short but I suspect you are and you have been taking a beating lately but today you are going to get demolished.

    OOPS, forget what he said about being against fetal tissue research. LOL

    On Wednesday, a physician by the name of Dr. Jen Gunter posted on her blog images of a paper published in 1992 by Carson on his work done utilizing fetal tissue — from a 17-week old fetus, no less.

    I really like the position they've worked themselves into. They are getting in the sweet spot to come and this stock could really rocket up next year. I'm accumulating at this absurdly low price.

  • Come earnings you are going to find out just the tip of the iceberg what getting their product into the Apple store means.
