Bear Krap

without comments

You hear a lot about the bears and the bulls of the investing world. For me, that is a little too strength intensive. It just paints a picture of a battle when smart investing is more of a marriage. I am more of a turtle and rabbit kind of guy. Investing with intimacy. I require myself to be involved in my investments. Not necessarily working for the company, but knowing that it is effecting something directly around me. I invest in Apple (AAPL) because I work in music and media or St. Joe (JOE) because they own most of the county I live in. I’m a rabbit by nature, but simple things like that keep the turtle going strong through the slow times.

Stock Nonsense

without comments

A lot of my life consists of random numbers and information. Sometimes you have to vent useless information that probably 99% of people could careless.

Apple splits twice in 2-3 years thanks to there new focus affordable trendy products. I’d sell at the end of the second year (approx. 2010) because the third year they start:
– getting viruses, which leads to buggy products
– back away from the core value of putting the best chip set on the market for their own apple manufactured chip (believe it…who do you think bought a chip maker this year)
– R&D cost skyrocket
– iTunes will have peaked (or close to it) – people will return to packaging of some sort

I will be an apple user for a very long time and I’ll re-buy the stock once the media starts to bet them down

GM let them bleed until Jan 2009 hop on board and hold and sell anytime after 2015.
– they have huge amounts in cash
– tons of patents
– they will turn their backs on the internal combustion engine at some point and I’m betting they are using the panic to make huge job cuts to unionized workers
