  • "Flamed" Again!! Thursday, 14 Jun 2007 | 2:29 PM ET

    Hi again, everyone. I've been remiss in not getting your comments on the blog with some of my responses, but yesterday's post about Apple shares brought an unusually high response. Both in the blog, and on my company email. In the media business, we have a term for the Mac (now iPod) faithful when we write or report some less-than-flattering comments and angles to the Apple story. We call it, "getting flamed."

  • Oscar's New Rules, Middle East Cell Phones, And More Thursday, 14 Jun 2007 | 2:12 PM ET
    Oscar Awards

    The Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences just approved some new rules for the 80th Academy Awards. The most notable change is a rule that states that nominees for Best Picture can only be "three or fewer producers who have performed the major portion of the producing functions." The board approved the potential for exceptions to that limit, but it definitely sends a message about disputes over who claims awards to films like 'Crash' from Yari Films.

  • Apple's iPhone Doesn't Jump Through 'Hoopes' Wednesday, 13 Jun 2007 | 2:19 PM ET
    Apple iPhone

    You gotta hand it to ThinkEquity Partners' Apple analyst Jonathan Hoopes who broke from the Street pack and, (the horror!), downgraded Apple Inc. today. Downgraded? Apple? That's like oil and water! Paris and freedom! The last time Apple was downgraded? Citigroup, on April 26th, when Apple was trading at around $90 a share. Those poor Citigroup clients missed another 33% to the upside since that downgrade was published.

    Fresh back from a week off at Disneyland with the family, I'm raring to go. And I noticed something as we cruised around the park. Cell phones were ubiquitous. People using them standing online. People using them riding rides! Kids. Adults. Everyone. Not so prevalent, but still there, were portable gaming devices. Yes, if you can believe it, kids wandering around the park, or sitting on a bench, or waiting on line for a ride, playing PSPs and Nintendo DSs.

Trading stops at the closing bell, so what happens will depend on who picked the best stock or stocks--as very little money separates the top three contenders.

  • Contest Finals: Nancy B. Leads On Last Day Friday, 25 May 2007 | 9:31 AM ET
    Nancy Beaumont

    Good morning all. We're starting this last day on the rough side as more than half of our Million Dollar contestants lost ground Thursday in a volatile market. All of our finalists are fully invested, with the exception of #15, Chuck Chow who is all in cash.  Nancy Beaumont holds first place for the 4th straight day on the 9% gain of Gymboree. Nancy may hold onto the top spot with her almost all-in trade on Verigy, a Singapore-based maker of test systems for the semiconductor industry, which beat estimates after the bell Thursday. Verigy was up almost 10% in extended hours.

  • Contest Finalists: Will Gymboree "Retail" A Winner? Thursday, 24 May 2007 | 2:34 PM ET

    Well, today is the biggest day for our Million Dollar Portfolio Challenge contestants. The trades they execute prior to 4pm will be the last trades that will impact their total portfolio value based on their performance on Friday. Only $22K separates the top three positions. Nancy Beaumont holds first place for the 3rd straight day. Nancy looks like she may maintain her first position with retail company Gymboree. Joe Dondero is losing so far today on his all-in bet on Ansoft. It's down in a rather 'up and down day" on the Street. But like Nancy, 3rd place holder Serge Amelyan is getting the benefit from Gymboree's rise.
