Apple earnings up 124% last quarter

and another $4B in the bank.

the link is to an analysis of Apple's financial position were it to be announced without using GAAP.

In this case, GAAP don't help investors or, apparently, analysts.

A Company on the Rise

It's been a while, but I can hardly stand it.

If you're looking for a company with a depressed stock price and large upward potential, read the title-linked article and consider AAPL.

AT&T was a recipient of some coat-tail riding...

So, which Party is better for your stock portfolio?

There seems to be a major kerfuffle in the web about which party being represented in the Oval Office best affects your stock investments...

The germ of it all was a post by the NYT... It seems to fit the definition of propaganda.

It was reworked a bit to make it more reasonable...

Finally, the co-founder of Mathematica makes a demo that allows you to factor several things into the mix: inflation, policy implementation lag, dividends, etc... The bottom line is:
It doesn’t matter who is in charge, the market is saying, in the long run it’s going to be OK.

Some sense from Ann Coulter...

Regarding Senator Joe Biden's misstatements during his debate with Gov. Sarah Palin.

I think that she's right. Gov. Palin would be out in a heartbeat if she were as dense and wrong as he is.
For example, Biden said about Hezbollah: "When we kicked – along with France – we kicked Hezbollah out of Lebanon." Hezbollah was never kicked out of Lebanon.

He continued: "I said and Barack said, 'Move NATO forces in there. Fill the vacuum, because if you don't, Hezbollah will control it.'" This is madness – Lebanon is not a NATO country, nor had any NATO country been attacked by Lebanon.


In one especially hallucinatory answer, Biden authoritatively stated: "With Afghanistan, facts matter, Gwen. ... We spend more money in three weeks on combat in Iraq than we spent on the entirety of the last seven years that we have been in Afghanistan building that country."

According to the Congressional Research Service, since 9/11, we've spent $172 billion in Afghanistan and $653 billion in Iraq. The most money spent in Iraq came in 2008, when we have been spending less than $3 billion a week. So by Biden's calculations, we've spent only about $9 billion "on the entirety of the last seven years that we have been in Afghanistan building that country." There isn't even a "9" in $172 billion.
