    I have put my price target on Verizon of 62$, but will sell out my major potion at 58$, I could have never expected the company would turn into the tech giant it is. 12 month ago I was holding 25,000 shares but have added considerably to my positions, but its time to diversify with the cost basis of my Verizon share at under 45$. I'm just going to day trade VZ from now on.

    I'm working in building up large position in Walt Disney Co DIS. Like Verizon, Disney will be helped by the Trumps tax cuts and their products will stand the test of time. I scoop up 1000 shares every time this company goes below 110$ and I love the dividend. Even though I think the wheels have come off the Star Wars saga, but could easily be resurected. I think the Marvel library will keep this company beating the numbers every quarters for years to come.

    Jan 10, 2018 - Advance sales for "Black Panther" have set a new record for Fandango as the top seller among Marvel movies in the first 24 hours. ... “Avengers: Infinity War,” which includes many of the “Black Panther” characters, and Boseman was voted as the most anticipated comic book hero in a standalone movie.

    This movie alone could add 1 billion to DIS P&L for the next quarter and 3 billion in 2018.

    Looking for other peoples opinions, looking for people who may have more information then I do. My style is to grind it out and take profits on small moves and sell my potions, most of the other people here are looking for stock that are high risk high reward. I want people to challenge me, and tell me Sprint is a better investment then Verizon

    I am an engineer.....if I was 20 again I would choose to be some sort of financial analyst. I think I would have loved trying to pick stocks for a living. Basically legalized gambling everyday. I would have been very good and looking at the data and trying to find theories on how to make money.

    My son is a financial planner for affluent clients. We just got back from going out for dinner and discussed the market and what is going to happen. The information that he is seeing and reading is that the market will be strong again this year. Thinks the banking industry could have a strong year. The worldwide market is currently strong in the USA and Europe. Another industry that could benefit is the construction industry because of the potential infrastructure bill.

    I am still concerned the market is due for a serious correction. I think it will happen fairly fast too once it starts to happen. I am currently reading The Road To Ruin by James Rickards. It is pretty dry (goes into too many minute details to make his point but he makes some good points that there is going to be some major change and what will happen).

    I can give you a couple stocks to look at. Local Minnesota companies. I made a significant amount of money on Toro. I sold it early in the year but the 3 or 4 years before that it probably outperformed the S&P by about 2 to1. I have some friends in management at 3M. Pretty solid company. They seem to be performing well.

    I work in the solar industry. SEDG is a company out of Israel. Your two main components are solar panels and inverters. They make the inverters so potentially they could be on every solar installation where as there are probably 300 + different solar panel manufacturers. There product is very good. They went from start up to over 60% of the market in the USA for residential installations. They dont have much of a presence in large scale solar yet. There stock has soared. The 30% tariff on solar panels just announced by Trump administration will potentially result in a slight pull back in price. Solar is not going away. Once you have something people want there is no turning back. If it comes to a free market decision solar will beat the other sources of power. The other thing about their product is ELon Musk has hooked his wagon to their inverter. He throws a certain amount of weight,

    On that same line my son said that they have quite a few people taking position in lithium because it is a limited supply and is used in batteries that are in cellphones and also in other batteries.

    The old saying of buy when there is blood on the street. A very wealthy friend of mine still laughs about this, After 911 the market got waxed. Boeing got waxed even more. I said the market was wrong. People were not going to quit flying. My opinion was there were 6 planes that needed to be replaced and their stock should be going up. So I purchased more Boeing stock. They have basically no competition (other than Airbus) and the entry point for competition is way too high. Of course it came back with vigor.

    I think an industry with a huge upside potential right now is driverless cars. Finding a winner in the technology/sensors market that could be used in a Google car or Volvo or Apple car could be a long term winner.

    I have been asked to speak at schools and Universities on renewable energy. I have said for some time the ability to store energy in a cost effective way will be the next be game changer in the energy business. I spoke at an event on Tuesday this week. Another one of the speaker's was asked about the future. He has been asked to be a guest on national news shows like MSNBC and others. Someone asked him where investment opportunities were. He said the other area that I think will be the other industry with huge investment opportunities: WATER. The day is coming where places are not going to have water and then what happens? Any company that has a cost effective solution to that problem is going to make huge amounts. Not sure who that is going to be or what the solution is going to be.

    You have been around here long enough to know that there are significant amount of people that are not open to any new ideas. You can maybe use that to to your advantage. The more they dont like something .... the more you know it will be a winner.

    You will have to post a stock or 2 you might like.

    I have been a huge huge proponent of photovoltaic energy since I got my first Panasonic solar panel in 2000 which is still in use today. I have a 16 290w panels or 4.6 KHW system in my back yard with Enphase 250 micro inverters. There is no money in hard ware for solar, but photovoltaic is so reliable and efficient it’s like priming money. You Can make a KHW for .01 or less and sell it for .05-.12 cents. In theory I can see photovoltaic energy being sold at a 10,000% mark up. So, I set out to find what utility makes the most solar power and all roads lead me to BHE owned by Berkshire Hathaway Inc. NYSE: BRK.B

    I own apple and Verizon, so I hedge my potions in both of those companies buy day trading Berkshire Hathaway Inc. Class B. It does not matter what way the market turns, people are always going to need power and internet. So, I only buy defensive stock that pay a larger dividend. NYSE: BRK.B is the only exception in my portfolio.
    But I’m a day trader, 90% of the time I sell stock when there is a .10 cent profit and I’m out. I buy and sell the same stock 1-5 times a day; 1000 shares. I’m not looking at 3 years down the line I’m looking to get out 3 minutes or 30 minutes or 3 hours down the line. I need to keep turning over my capital.

    I don’t own stocks, I rent them, the only reason I don’t sell a stock is because I use them as secured collateral to barrow money at LIBOR to invest in real estate.
    The other stock I own have already exceeded my targets so I don’t recommend them,

    DIS, VZ and BRK.B are all undervalued in my opinion.

    Disney doesnt seem to match with companies that are needs. Disney in terms of their parks are a luxury. My daughter performed at Disney World and I say that it was totally class organization. Movies etc. are something else...basically relatively cheap entertainment. There are many cheap entertainment options.

    I think buying Boeing is a better play. Airplanes are not going anywhere and they basically have no competition. In terms of performance. They have kicked Disney as in terms of return. The dividend is this 33% larger than Disney.

    If Disney has any advantage of Boeing it is that Boeing has performed so much better than Disney the last 5 years.

    Congratulations on being an early adapter of solar. Enphase was the Mercedes of inverters back then. They have been totally passed by Solar Edge, That is why their stock has gone from $15 to $2.

    I look forward to hearing any new investments ideas would like to share, thank you again Northern star

    UPS has exercised options to order 14 additional Boeing 747-8 Freighters, providing additional capacity in support of accelerating demand for U.S. and international air services.

    The aircraft build on the company’s 2016 order of 14 Boeing 747-8Fs. UPS will also purchase 4 new Boeing 767 Freighters, adding capacity for customers on both U.S. and international routes.

    “As we celebrate the 30th anniversary of UPS Airlines today, we are seeing unprecedented demand for our air products,” said UPS Airlines President Brendan Canavan. “The new freighters will allow us to continue upsizing aircraft on routes and will create a cascading effect that will boost capacity on regional routes around the world.”

    “UPS has clearly tapped into the power and efficiency the 747-8 Freighter brings to the market,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes president and CEO Kevin McAllister. “We’re impressed with how UPS is leveraging the airplane in its operations, and also excited to see them bring additional 767s into their fleet.”

    Boeing said it booked orders for 912 commercial airplanes, the seventh highest annual total for the company. Those orders pushed Boeing's backlog at the end of 2017 to 5,864 commercial airplanes, an all-time high. The backlog of orders totals about seven years' worth of production, according to Boeing.

    UPS is my largest holding, so it has not been a good last two weeks, I will be buying more BA on Monday.

    When I started this thread, was before I had my solar system in my back yard, so i never considered a EV car; so the new Bentley will have to wait till they make a EV. I have owned a GT since before I stated this thread, fun car to drive , lost of technical problems , really good engine and nice to look at.

    Market has been on fire .. I just sold out all but 6,000 of my Verizon Communications Inc. as it hit a historical high today . 5G is a paradigm shift in industrial automation and the use of control systems to replace a human being, the first industry to fall will be trucking where 1 million jobs will be lost, how many of thouse people are Verizon customers. VZ Profit have been strong but they still carry 125 billion in debt and a strong dividend. Amazon.com, Inc. is the only stock i would buy that does not pay a dividend, as i think it will some day go into banking and insurance as a end game and as a hedge to positions in UPS one of the other best run companies in the world.

    NEW YORK, Sept. 06, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Board of Directors of Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq:VZ) today declared a quarterly dividend of 60.25 cents per outstanding share, an increase of 1.25 cents per share, or 2.1 percent, from the previous quarter.

    Berkshire Hathaway (BRK.B) Up 5.9% Since Last Earnings Report.

    Boeing Co
    NYSE: BA
    351.27 USD +4.59 (1.32%)

    i think its time to exit Boeing Co with interest rates at %.02 and stock pile the cash.

    Verizon Communications Inc. (NYSE, Nasdaq:VZ) has performed long term pretty much as i thought, but is failing to generate content and provide a cord cutting platform, I still have a 62 target as generation delusional are addicted to multiple streams of data, but (NYSE, Nasdaq:VZ) is going to hover for some time. ATT has the content , but has debt and the price reflects that. I'm adding T below 29.50 for its dividend and 5 G as a long germ play with a priced target of 36

    This week was a clusterfuck

    Brutal week Dow plunges 1,150 points. The detention of Huawei's chief financial officer, Meng Wanzhou, reportedly over a possible violation of sanctions on Iran, threatens to escalate tensions between the US and China at a time when sensitive talks to resolve a trade war are underway , this after New Zealand's international spy agency had ban mobile company Spark from using Huawei equipment in its planned deployment of 5G upgrade.

    The Snapdragon Technology Summit was supposed to be the coming-out party for blazing-fast 5G cellular networks, it was a disaster.
    A problem with the software in Ericsson equipment is causing outages across the world, including O2 users in Great Britain and SoftBank users in Japan

    If that was not enough Verizon stock falls after J.P. Morgan downgrade; AT&T shares rise after upgrade.


    I'm still high on both of these stock and will rebuild my positions at T under 29.50 and VZ under 53.00.

    The fed raised rates early to gain a weapon in case there is a recession and ATT is burden with debt, but that debt is paying dividends , T is at a 7% dividend, so I took a small bite at putting in a market order at the bottom 22.16 and got shares at 29.23 and 29.24. BATS is so corrupt. Wait for sub 29 prices to purchase again.

    Verizon has become a wild animal, (-0.27%) on volume of 51,292,567 but that was a lat afternoon kick .70 cents up tick; I have never thought i would see so much volatility in a utility stock. Ill be keeping my eye on the Ex dates for both of these stocks 01/09/2019, I continue to see strong cash flows and outlook for both of these business. AT 53 I can dollar cost average this down to it bottom and collect plus.04% a year in passive income & day trading it all the way down. I also hope to be launching my own solar automation system in 2020 that has been in the works since 2015.

    Solar Automation?

    Why wait until 2020.....fed tax credit of 30% is over after 2019. Does scale down. There is a safe harbor of 30% if 5% of project is paid for in 2019.

    Solar business is booming in Minnesota right now.

    The U.S.-China trade dispute escalated sharply Monday, as Beijing retaliated against higher U.S. tariffs with plans to increase levies on $60 billion in U.S. imports, this is a great opportunity to pick up some value stocks in the service area. Verizon below 56 , keeping an eye on their reduction of debt, along with AT&T. Republic Services, Inc. i first learned about this stock when it was part of Bill Gates portfolio, but he has long since sold his stock positions when he started his The Giving Pledge bullshit, all three consistently make efforts to reward its shareholders through dividend payments, i was a buyer today and will be a buyer of all three tomorrow, i don't hold stocks, i rent them and I turn them over as fast as possible buying and selling the same ticker 2-4 times a day.

    More people have given up on finding work and therefore are no longer counted as either working or unemployed. That's why the unemployment rate keeps dropping. It isn't the underlying strength of the economy that reaches all levels of society. The number of jobs might be keeing rough pace with the growth of the population. That has implications for income inequality — fewer people working means less income and wealth. I was taught in college that growing employment should drive up wages !!!

    Unemployment will keep dropping being replaced by artificial intelligence and automation and universal basic income for all american adults, this will be a paradigm shift, ford might become a last mile delivery and shipping company, space x might become a telecommunication company the. I used to use "Barriers to entry" as a variable and now there are stock i don't dare not hold like Amazon and Microsoft and Google.

    And this Thing I saw! How can I describe it? A monstrous tripod, higher than many houses, striding over the young pine trees, and smashing them aside in its career; a walking engine of glittering metal, striding now across the heather; articulate ropes of steel dangling from it, and the clattering tumult of its passage mingling with the riot of the thunder.

    LUCKIN COFFEE INC. (LK) IPO. This is not my typical stock investment , My daughter turned me on to this brand, the last time I met with her her in NYC "Luckin Coffee chain" I feel like this is the opposite of what Peter Lynch would say .. “I've never said, 'If you go to a mall, see a Starbucks and say it's good coffee, you should call Fidelity brokerage and buy the stock,'”

    But this is what has happened ... Crazy cheap cappuccinos China's Luckin Coffee chain goes public. Luckin faces an identity crisis: analysts can't quite decide whether to treat it as a coffee chain, a tech company or something in between.
    finances remain firmly in the red. In the first three months of this year, Luckin lost $85bn on sales of $71bn. Luckin caters to Chinese tastes. Its focus is more on pick-up and online orders rather than creating a comfortable place to sit and sip, as Starbucks aims to do.

    Analysts say Luckin has little chance of competing against Starbucks outside China on the basis of its products or restaurants. But its extensive use of technology could give it a cost advantage over Starbucks, especially in developing countries. I like the Amazon like attack on the coffee market, I like the technology , I like making coffee back into a convenience not an indulgence. Luckin Coffee shops have no cashiers. Customers order and pay for their drinks through an app.

    Success is figuring out how to grow a large and loyal base of coffee drinkers. And to do that, it needs a good menu of enticing items. It has even brought on 2014 World Barista Champion, Hidenori Izaki, to help design its recipes and advise it on things like ingredient selection. “Chinese consumers’ taste tendencies are not yet fixed but frequently changing,” Izaki, the World Barista Champion and Luckin’s coffee consultant, told Quartz in an email. “We always analyze and adjust recipes of drinks” such as the strength and sweetness of the coffee. To keep up with the latest consumer trends, Izaki travels regularly throughout China to research flavors and tastes.

    I like a company that is more nimble and flexible and closer to the peoples need and wants and trends.

    Smartmoney:

    Most of the members on this website won't look into the future and look at where the world is going. Too busy deny climate change as a hoax and making things political. When comes to making money I will definitely bet on the Yankees even thought they are my least favorite team.

    There are probably a couple hundred solar panel manufacturers. But there are allot less inverter manufacturing companies. The residential market is 20 times as large as the commercial market in the USA. The two main players are solar edege and enphase. I like solar edge (SEDG) product better (because they have commerical products too) than enphase but both of the stocks are kickng ass. If the democrats win the next election they will probably do even better.

    The next big wave is going to be electric vehicles. I have been saying this for awhile. I have a customer that is implementing the first electric semi trucks into his fleet and installing a large solar array at the same time. It is coming...just a matter of how fast. With that same thinking I think there could be a huge demand for electric vans. Big companies are just not nimble enough to move quickly. I am intrigued by WKHS.

    It is good to hear from you , I am in total agreement with your thinking, and my next car or truck purchase will be a EV, but I have been playing the utilities that service large congested cites where people can not utilize a solar system like consolidated edison, until last weeks substation faulty relay protection system failure.

    The next big wave is going to be electric vehicles and the money is in semi trucks and last mile vans. I know that UPS worked closely with Workhorse, to redesign the trucks "from the ground up," UPS's senior director of maintenance and engineering. Motiv Power Systems delivered its first of seven all-electric step vans to the United States Postal Service (USPS) as part of CARB funding program. The savings for major logistics players not having to predict market fluctuation in fuel prices. And I never count out Telsa, If Tesla would just focus on semi trucks, that's where the big money is, but it would cost the US 10 million jobs.

    But the company i have my eye on is Ford. Ford acquired Argo AI for $1 billion from Carnegie Mellon alums Bryan Salesky and Peter Rander. The two have worked individually with Google and Uber. Ford Motor Company's latest innovation is a a two-legged robot designed and built by Agility Robotics called Digit that is designed to deliver packages of up to 40 pounds and is capable of navigating uneven terrain and stairs. I think adding EV to an existing product that drives is self and has a robot as part of the system unit is the next category killer.

    Not just working class jobs , at least 50% of the people need to replaced, the people who either don't prepare themselves for the for the employment market, and think they are entitled to a job. People who think the job needs to be structured around them, and meet their needs, they need to meet and exceed the needs of the job. The people who think they are being discriminated and need affirmative action, when the requirements have been lowered for them. I support all of the companies who i feel will help make this a reality, Google DeepMind, Microsoft, nvidia who my personal automation company is working with and use their Jetson TX2 embedded AI computing device which is a brilliant product, Viscon Hydroponics. There should be two classes the rich and the subjugated. If the poor need something, they need to place the blame firmly on their past generations who had the opportunity to work, but choose other options, now we just have no use for you except at consumers. Unfortunately we are headed for universal basic income.
