Re: BOFI taking market share from EVER?

Hello,

Just my opinion, but when banking is looked at by function, the most important functions are deposit-taking and lending. Depositors gravitate to higher rates paid on deposits and borrowers gravitate to lower rates charged on loans. In [more]

Re: 1YPEG practice (KMX)

Hello Rob,

The E in PE is earnings per share. take your earnings; divide by number of shares and divide the answer into the price.

Re: Our special board

Hello,

In regard to your quest to reduce the number of stocks, I would ask what is the rush? While I agree with the idea that 15 is better than 20+, when you have already invested in more, shouldn't the reason to sell any be that you need [more]

Re: Discussion about investing in Solar City

Hello Saul,

I am with you on this. I try hard to stay from investment in any enterprise that relies on a government subsidy. Many years ago, I invested in low income housing to take advantage of tax breaks and help bring this needed housing [more]

Re: Looking into the future of a stock

Hello Chris,

Thanks you for posting your thoughts about the hypothetical. It was helpful even though there seems to be no evidence yet that SWKS's business is slowing or that they are losing market share.

Re: Looking into the future of a stock

Hello Chris,

I was writing in response to the statement that implied that there was less risk going forward in SWKS because they have guided increasing gross margins. I asked you to imagine a hypothetical. I stated that I could not put a [more]

Re: Looking into the future of a stock

Hello Chris,

I say they will not get squeezed for the foreseeable future (at least 2 years).

I don't have any data to dispute this. But imagine a scenario where QCOM gains traction on their RF 360 initiative. Let's say they [more]

Re: QCOM disruptive solution in the RF arena

Hello Ray,

Many thanks for this post. I have been thinking for a couple of weeks about commenting on SWKS which is enthusiastically (and profitably) viewed in these parts. Your post allows me to focus on my main point rather than have to [more]

Re: BOFI

Hello,

I shared your concern until I realized that BOFI is intelligently investing profits into new business initiatives. They are holding the efficiency ratio at near 35% while new business ventures are rolled out in a disciplined, measured [more]

Re: Ubnt CFO leaving

Hello Andy,

I remember that call, it was not Pera's finest performance. As I look at Foster's history, it is less likely that there is any kind of mess there. Perhaps he and Pera no longer got along well. I have a tiny position and will add [more]

Hello Andy,

In the last call, Pera was optimistic about network revenues in the 2nd half of the year (calendar year or fiscal year?) and quite optimistic about enterprise accelerating growth. It will be good to get the call next week and the [more]

Hello,

"Where's the beef?"

I agree that is why the stock price is down today. IMO Arcam should be

Hello,

In the tree fruit industry we are already seeing machine-harvested fruit. This is not yet prevalent, but is occurring, particularly where the orchard is most level. In most fruit, labor savings from shorter ladders is not a factor in [more]

Re: OT: Captain--avocado Trees

Hello,

I know little about avocado, but trees that grow apples, cherries, and pears, if allowed to grow tall, shade the lower limbs so that fruit does not grow there. The light that you mention is critical for the blossoms and buds that grow [more]

Re: INBK

Hello Saul,

I guess that I am of the old school that equates stock values to a cash flow discounted by an interest rate. When the interest rate is increased the present value decreases because of the time value of money. I also believe that [more]

I think this is a trend. If you drive North along the Columbia River in Central Washington you can see this happening a lot with apples, as well.

You are certainly correct about the size of the apple trees now being [more]

Hello Saul,

Thank you very much, now I understand! I agree that it seems it would be folly for the Fed to raise rates soon but the day will come and when it does, it will create headwinds for the entire market, not just some [more]

Re: INBK

Hello Saul,

By the way, I do agree with you creelon, that BOFI is a better and safer pick right now, because of it's consistency, better efficiency ratio, etc, and that INBK is a bit of a speculation, and I'm treating it at such. However [more]
