Blockbuster Can't Get No Satisfaction?

January 05, 2009 – Comments (4) | RELATED TICKERS: NFLX , BLOKA.DL , AMZN

Survey company Forsee Results recently handed out their list of the top 40 companies in online customer satisfaction for 2008. Topping the list was online retail giant Amazon.com and site-to-home movie retailer Netflix. Why, you might ask am I hinting to the fact that Blockbuster might be getting the raw deal by investors when one of their competitors tops the list? I am so glad you asked.  [more]

In 2009: Be a HOG!!!

January 02, 2009 – Comments (14) | RELATED TICKERS: HOG

A lot of companies have been beaten down by the economy, we all know that. But I am an eternal optimist when it comes to the American economy and its ability to come back with a vengeance. In my  opinion right now is one of the greatest, and maybe the greatest, time to buy undervalued companies in the last half a century. One company that I have recently added to my portfolio (a little disclosure there) is Harley Davidison (HOG). If there is a company that I can see being around 50 or even a 100 years from now, this is one of them. Here are the following reasons why:  [more]

Headline: Doe it Really Matter?

December 30, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: SIX , BRK-A

I have been investing for several years now and nearly everyday the headlines on financial websites and newspapers read strikingly similar. When the markets down investors are said to be losing hope in the economy for one reason or another. When the markets are up hopes are said to be rising. The editors might change the wording from day to day, but the message is still the same.  [more]

Eye-ing Imax

December 29, 2008 – Comments (0) | RELATED TICKERS: IMAX , CNK , RGC

One thing that Warren Buffett looks for when selecting companies is whether or not a company is able to stand tall in the face of opposition. He calls this having a durable competitive advantage. IMAX, the larger than life movie screen creator, seems to fit this criteria. Sure there are a multitude of other cinemas and movie theatre chains chiming for our entertainment dollars such as Regal, Cinemark (CNK), AMC and Carmike (CKEC) to name a few. But the beauty of IMAX is that they can make seeming competitors, allies with the simple stroke of a pen.   [more]

Is Blockbuster Back?

December 28, 2008 – Comments (2) | RELATED TICKERS: BLOKA.DL , NFLX

Recently while driving down the street I passed several Blockbuster storefronts. Past the large blue movie tickets and through the glass windows I saw each with customers scurrying about. While many have dismissed Blockbuster as a falling Behemoth that once was and never will be again, I see something quite different going on. With the advent of CEO Jim Keyes, this once domineering movie rental giant, has once again started alluring customers to their brick and mortar celluloid havens. What they have realized is that competing with the likes of Netflix is not as important as focusing on what makes any great retailer successful; having a strong competitive advantage.  [more]
