Ok......How about someone using their Goodwin Law wildcard!

MadCap is a German national-socialist and should crawl back under the rock he just came from.

Re: Poll: What does AAPL represent in your portf

The only real important difference is that apple prints money and Tesla has so far consumed it.

That’s why he needs more Tesla shares :)))

Re: Poll: Do you drive a 10 year old Buick.

I didn’t get a drivers license until I was 39. Since then I owned a second-hand VW Gol, which wasn’t a great deal. Next a second-hand Toyota Corolla, which was a very good deal. Still, between those and cars my wife owned, I figured it’s better to [more]

If you click on the “Services” list at the top of the page, you’ll see Inside Value is no longer there. Nor is Hidden Gems, once my favorite service, and a bunch of others have disappeared as well. Instead TMF has replaced them with much more [more]

First $1T company

Is going to be Amazon, if you ask me, not Apple. Possibly by the end of the year, the way the stock has been going. https://finance.yahoo.com/quote/AMZN?p=AMZN

Re: Am I not an Apple customer any more?

I can only suppose they hope to increase revenue by selling little dongle ports at the Apple Store. Or people Apple thinks will use these laptops don't connect to other devices all day.

Re: TMF - paid member ?

I used to be a paying member of several of their services. I let the subscription expire when I sold all my stock a few years back in order to buy a second home. I liked their services, and I learned a lot, but I couldn’t help feeling service was [more]

Re: Resumed Portfolio Reviews Part XXXIV: R

I haven’t used any TMF services in a while. But I happened to notice that Inside Value no longer exists. Which seems like it’s a pity, it was a good service. But I also don’t see ‘Discovery’ among the services listed.

I mostly follow a few [more]

Re: AI AMZN vs IBM

No amount of rear-view looking GAAP financials is going to help you predict that.

Re: All is not rose gold in Apple Stores

My personal experience is when you know what you want to buy, it’s pretty fast. Doesn’t matter if it’s something small or a 27” iMac, service is generally good and fast.

If you need a repair however, it’s a totally different story. For [more]

I know it’s a popular pastime to consider who BRK could buy next. Somehow I couldn’t quite picture them taking on Disney, but wasn’t immediately sure why not. I guess it’s because it’s not a simple business model with a management you can just leave [more]

Re: Beginning of the end of healthcare as we know it

While I certainly think the US healthcare system could use some changes, many of the problems lay outside the realm of the insurer and/or provider. So it’s not so sure what they could do different from, say, Kaiser Permanente, and cause healthcare to [more]
