Higher stock market means higher tax revenue... Plain and simple. Remember the surplus during the 2000 market run up. But regardless I don't see 30 year rates hitting 6 or 7% and/or 10 year bond to hit 4 or 5% anytime soon. May be 4% tops. It is going to be like Japan. This economy cannot sustain high rates we will just tip in recession. For higher rates on checking accounts to reach even 2% rather impossible. That 80% does not have any savings.. to benefit from any of these policies. Even If average savings were say $50K, that 2% checking rate only gives you a negligible a meager $1000. That is not wealth creation.. it is still below inflation.
Your short is more riskier than being long. Because it is a leverage instrument it can kill u much faster.
Interestingly ARM based RT will have no or very limited viruses, like Android or IOS. But with Intel based you are susceptible to all the viruses and spyware junk like laptops and desktops and soon the tablet becomes bloated!!
Dell 8" tablet with Intel quad core on sale with full Windows 8.1 is awesome and selling out.
Dell also has put Venue8 - Android for $129 on sale for BF.. Selling like hot cakes. Do you want ipad mini for $299 or $399 vs $129
Your friend is smarter than the market and financial wizzes.. Go with advise. Juniper itself is a tired stock!
I agree. I know couple of people there as well are not happy since the IPO. This was completely failed IPO and company had rushed to go IPO, because they wanted more funds and were not getting any from the VC community. Look at price action now. They are worth less than the Whiptail acquisition!
They forecast10% decline in revenues. If that trend continues for next few quarters then what ? That could be huge short fall.. It should go down to $17 or $18
This approach strips out many of the hardware and software features companies like HP and Dell insert into general-purpose products, making them cheaper and more efficient."
This is a myth, you all getting all the extras and proprietary stuff for free anyways from current switch vendors. They are not charging any extra money. They are all price competitive. Chip vendors have different agenda, they just want more and more people to build switches.
If they start charging, you will loads of subscribers bail out.. very quickly. $2/month is still of money for people in developing countries. Do you know what is average mobile subscriber revenue in India ? It is $5 a month!
I could never understand why companies like FLR, FWLT or JEC stocks has gone up so much, while Giants like INTC, MSFT etc.. generating so much cash flow go no where..
If you read the report lot more downs than up, where is the growth and why are the stocks moving like growth stocks!

Following the earnings release, Foster reiterated its full-year earnings guidance to be marginally above $1.54 a share.
It is trap! Sell on strength.. I sold some at a small loss.. POS has going down since last quarter around when it was $26. I am sure the govt shutdown would have shave some top line of current quarter.
Surface 2 is different breed, don't worry too much about it. How much does fully loaded ipad which sells for $1K matters ?
Amazing growth in stock from $10 to $80 since 2008! Looking at CMG, Panera etc... Who says we are in great recession! It looks like a boom..
It is funny isn't it ? While companies like MSFT are churning out crazy cash quarter after quarter, but stock barely grows. Plus they do so much in R&D, man they should be selling burritos instead of tablets look at the CMG... Eventually cash makes the book value go up so stock will catchup!
