Comments Off on Who Knew Oracle Was Going to Buy NetSuite….
Oracle is going to buy NetSuite for $109 per share, but it seems like someone knew this yesterday. But was this in the cards years ago...after all, Oracle CEO Larry Ellison is the largest share holder of NetSuite, and the company also happens to be run by an ex-Oracle executive... Amazingly, NetSuite traded down as low as $8 a share in 2009 during the financial crisis. Today, the stock is trading at $108 a share. Anyone who bought the stock and held on to if for the past six years deserves a lot of credit.

Make Banks Money Again

Comments Off on Make Banks Money Again
When Trump's president, dear God I hope not, banks will make money again. Well, banks are actually already making a lot of money. But I do wonder what percentage of that money is from overdraft fees.... When interest rates go up though, banks will make even more money. Although there will be less loans given out if rates go up a lot, with rates where they are now that won't happen for quite a long time. So it does seem like banks are a good long term buy since rates have to go up at some point, right?

Comments Off on Janet Yellen Smiles Through Question About Trump Causing World Economic Collapse
I wonder what Donald Trump thinks about this video clip, where the crowd seems to laugh and chuckle at his presidency causing a world wide economic collapse. It's as though Janet Yellen and the rest of the financial crowd just have to smile and laugh and pray that Trump never wins the presidency. It's just something they can't even comprehend or want to. Yellen just says she's focused on her job, as she tries to smile through it. And by the way, who is the guy asking the question? Janet Yellen: "I'm sorry, I've got nothing for you on that...we're

Comments Off on Jack Dorsey Never Looks at Twitter’s Stock Chart
Come on, do you believe this? Jack Dorsey says he doesn't ever look at Twitter's stock price. Really, I'm not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing. I mean you certainly don't want a CEO who obsesses over their company's stock price, so much so that they don't have a long term outlook, but if your company's stock is tanking you might want to look at its chart from time to time:
It had been a strange week for Dorsey. Shares of Twitter’s stock had fallen another 16 percent in a single day after the most recent

Comments Off on Romney Voters Think Stock Market Is Down Under Obama
Thanks Obama. The stock market is only up 150%, if Romney were president it would have been up 1500%. If former reality TV star Donald Trump become president, the stock market will be up 15 million percent. The stock market will go up so much that you'll just wish it went down sometimes because you'll be so tired of it going up and up and up.

I wonder if Barron's will be as wrong as they were about Facebook's stock with this cover. Of late, what Barron's has said on its cover turns out to be pretty wrong. It's sort of like the cover curse.

In January of 2009, Ulta Salon, Cosmetics & Fragrance, with the ticker ULTA, traded for around $6 a share. Today the stock it over $230 a share. That's a nice run.

ULTA has a market cap of $14.68 billion, not an insance number or anything, could the stock keep going higher?

Comments Off on Dividend Increases for 50 Consecutive Years
It's sort of amazing to even have a company that's been around for 50 years right? Especially these days, what with "disruption" taking place left and right, as companies like Amazon more or less destroy companies that once thrived. But here's a list of companies that have not only have been around for 50 years but have increased their dividend for 50 straight years. The questions is which companies will continue to increase their dividends or be around for the next ten, twenty or fifty years?
