Pandora is Screwed

August 26, 2012 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: P , AAPL

So I'm working today (ugh), and for weeks since a computer upgrade at work, Pandora won't load.  So a few hours ago today I finally downloaded Spotify -- which download worked fine despite my firm's firewalls, through which Pandora won't even run.  And it's great.  It looks more like iTunes, the suggestions are great, the social aspect is great, the way that you can select your owns songs and make playlists is great, the fact that ads are less intrusive is great.  It's been awhile since I've been on Pandora, but I am not optimistic about it from my memory of it, based on my experience so far with Spotify.  [more]

Adding Intel Shares

August 22, 2012 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: INTC , AAPL , MSFT

As noted in my pitch log, I added 28 more shares of Intel in my IRA.  The stock is still down over 10% from its high for the year, holds a bunch of cash, sports a 3.3%-ish dividend yield, and sports a sub-11 P/E and sub-10 forward P/E, reasonable PEG ratio, is making gobs of free cash flow, and is striving to meet challenges relating to the mobile revolution.  It's not a home run, but this is a no-brainer hold for me for the next decade or until there is some mathematical proof-positive that it is actually in decline, rather than speculation.   [more]
