Quick Thought on Blu-Ray

February 19, 2013 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: NFLX , AMZN , OUTR

While recently debating the viability of Coinstar as a long-term option a thought occured to me.  Even though the sales of DVD's are down, Blu-Ray sales are continuing to grow.  This is significant because you cannot stream blu-ray.  So even the DVD sales might be down, blu-ray players and sales continue to grow.  A bit of a comfort for Coinstar and the kiosks.  Looking at Coinstars 4th quarter earnings this is evident as blu-ray sales doubled.  Just a quick late night thought-more on this later.   [more]



Will Pandora Ever Suceed?

January 17, 2013 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: P , SIRI , AAPL

  I love listening to Panodra (Nasdaq: P), Today's Country Radio is my jam and I have logged countless hours listening to it.  The bigger question is will the company succeed?  Personally I can't see it happening along with the CAPS community who has given it a paltry one star rating.  Here are my 3 biggest reasons why.     [more]



(Updated) Growth Still Possible at Starbucks

January 11, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SBUX , MCD , YUM

Starbucks (Nasdaq: SBUX) had an up ($62.00) and down ($43.04) year but currently resides in the higher end of that range.  Not exactly a bargain price but I do believe there still is a profit to be made.  Starbucks also sports a solid and recently steady profit margin of around 10%.  What excites me about Starbucks is their growth in China and adaptation into the Chinese culture.   [more]



What a Start to 2013 Zipcar!

January 02, 2013 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: ZIP.DL2 , CAR

Today Zipcar was bought out by Avis rocketing the share price to $12.20, as a shareowner I for one am pretty estatic.  You always dream of owning a stock that gets bought out, and to own one is pretty special.  I think Avis felt it was a great time to buy and wanted to make sure Zipcar didn't experience any more positive pops before taking over.  [more]



Opportunity over at Coinstar?

December 26, 2012 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: NFLX , OUTR , VZ

Redbox (a subsidary of Coinstar (CSTR)) recently announced that they will be coming out with a  Disc + Digital Service with Verizon called Redbox Instant.  $8 a month gets customers unlimited streaming of movies through EPIX and 4 rentals at Redbox Kiosks, I find the connection with EPIX to be very attractive as that connects them to Paramont Pictures and Lionsgate (Mission Impossible, Hunger Games) Redbox will be able to have these titles available 90 days after release.  Also Redbox Instant will also be offering electronic sell-through (EST) and video-on-demand (VOD) through video agreements with major studios.   [more]
