  1. Besides his posts, I could tell from several PMs we shared this was a good man. All the best to his family. You will be remembered well.
  2. I see Punk has added you to his death pool. Ominous sign If you ask me. I'm guessing though you won't be worth the points unless he needs them.
  3. It's a nice research gateway app.....you are probably more into the numbers crunching business. On the other hand, all the research I did recently said that rates are sure to increase this year. I'm beginning to think the mass consensus might have some holes.
  4. Tell it to Micky D's. McDonald’s Fighting To Be ‘Relevant’ To Customers, CEO Concedes « CBS Chicago NEW YORK (AP) — McDonald’s is losing customers, as the world’s biggest hamburger chain struggles to attract diners with its higher-priced sandwiches and new offerings like Mighty Wings. “We’ve lost some of our customer relevance,” CEO Don Thompson conceded Thursday on a call with analysts. The Oak Brook, Ill.-based company reported disappointing sales for its fourth quarter, as fewer customers visited its established restaurants. Guest counts at those locations fell nearly 2 percent globally and 1.6 percent in the U.S. in 2013, according to a regulatory filing. And McDonald’s expects some challenges to persist this year. To win back traffic, Thompson said the chain will focus on speedier service, better value offerings and raising “awareness around McDonald’s as a kitchen and a restaurant” that prepares high-quality food. It’s expanding prep tables and plans to beef up staff during peak hours for better execution. It is also bringing in a new U.S. marketing chief, Deborah Wahl, formerly with homebuilder PulteGroup and automakers Chrysler and Ford.
  5. I use stockspy all the time. One of the best research tools for a phone that I've seen.
  6. Could be. You're the pro! BTW, I think Google's website is a mess. I can't get around that blasted thing.
  7. Ohhhhh.......lordy. It's here. I'm coming Elizabeth! SB if this image doesn't ring a bell there is no hope for you.
  8. Moody's gave the reasons.....and not the reasons you cite. Specifically this one is on Obama and his executive rule changes on the fly: “The past few months have seen new regulations and announcements that impose operational changes well after product and pricing decisions were finalized.” Also mention that the mix of yoot is not workable ('key factor') from a financial standpoint. :-(
  9. Yes...good point! I've got an web based app (Android Lost) that allows me to do that.
  10. In healthcare HIPAA comes into play. Someone steals your phone and you just happen to have medical record numbers on it. Very bad. /channeling Walt.......Ummmmmmmm, Walt you can probably root/rom your way around this I suppose.
  11. More good news on Obamacare. Slappies will slap. Begin. Better watch out Moody's...... DoJ gonna sue you! ......... Moody’s announced Thursday it was downgrading its outlook for health insurers from stable to negative based on uncertainty related to ObamaCare. The credit rating agency cited an unstable environment because of the healthcare law’s difficult rollout, and projected that insurers would earn 2 percent less than forecast in 2014. “While we’ve had industry risks from regulatory changes on our radar for a while, the ongoing unstable and evolving environment is a key factor for our outlook change,” Moody’s Senior Vice President Stephen Zaharuk said in a statement. “The past few months have seen new regulations and announcements that impose operational changes well after product and pricing decisions were finalized.” The Moody’s report also cites the slow enrollment of young people into ObamaCare as a reason for the downgrade. “Uncertainty over the demographics of those enrolling in individual products through the exchanges is a key factor in Moody’s outlook change,” the ratings agency said.

  13. Funny thing about China. Next to Canada our biggest trading partner. They also kill us in trade. But.....that's what Mr. MarketMan is seeing today.
  14. China manfucturing contracted in January. Big growth engine for the world is sputtering. No correction yet.
