  4. Disney (DIS)

    Individual Stocks/Equities
    Since nobody has started a Disney thread, I guess I'll be the one. Disney is down approximately 20% since November of last year, even though they had record profits. They have a lot of movies coming up over the next few years: http://www.techinsider.io/disney-movies-until-2019-2015-8 Their...
  5. Loblaw (L)

    Individual Stocks/Equities
    According to Google finance, the P/E ration for Loblaw is 575.15 as of today. I don't understand why this stock is has climbed so much over the last year (> 50%). Their net profit margin was 2.16% last quarter. Is this high valuation because they're sacrificing profits in an attempt to...

    Taxation
    Hello, I work for a US start-up company from which I have received Stock Options (not yet excercisable). Does anyone know the best course of action to reduce tax burden in Canada ? No date for stocks to go public (at least 3 years or so as this is a very early startup). I am afraid that when...

    Nice article on BABA http://www.thefinancialbulls.com/#!What-to-do-with-Alibaba-BABA-Now/c95u/8996C961-06C6-49FC-BBDF-83BC55092204
  8. Coast Wholesale Appliances (CWA)

    Individual Stocks/Equities
    When the group attempting the takeover has such a large percentage of the stock (40%, as of March 4), is takeover inevitable? I imagine they'll be at 50% soon if they're buying agressively. At that point, wouldn't they effectively control the corporation? Is there hope for a higher buyout price?
  9. Bought AAPL at $405 - Should I be selling now?

    Investing
    Hi everyone I'm not saying this to brag and to be very honest when I purchased AAPL at $405 (actually purchased LEAPs) I was expecting to either sell for a quick loss or hold to $430. But as it bounced around $430 I decided to hold it and after getting back from vacation it was up to $500. Just...

  12. Using the Volatility Index

    Investing
    I've been following the VIX (aka Fear Index) for awhile now. I superimposed a 5 year graph of the VIX over the stock market index and noticed an interesting correlation. Generally speaking, if one goes up, the other goes down. Since the range of the volatility index is confined from 1 to 100%...
  13. Typos when selling stocks - can you renag on an order?

    Investing
    When a mistake is made, such as typing a sale for $65 for a stock that is worth $650, and the sale goes through, is there a way to get that stock back? Luckily I haven't made this mistake myself, but I have seen sales go through for some stocks (I get alerts when they go below whatever dollar...

    Taxation
    I have stock options in a company that I obtained in exchange for work done. I have non-registered and registered trading accounts. I want to know if I could exercise these options through my TFSA and if my capital gains would still not be taxed? Meaning that if I had enough money on my TFSA to...
