Quarterly Guidance: A Relic of the Past?

Most publicly traded companies view quarterly guidance as necessary. We’ve always been in the habit of reporting quarterly earnings, therefore, it has turned into somewhat of a ritual.

No, Apple Doesn’t Care About Inflating It’s Senior Management/Board Minority Quota

Unless your a predominately minority institution (Such as a Historically Black College or the NAACP), there is usually a push to increase the diversity among the participants.

Fed Study: Federal Financial Aid Drives Up College Tuition Cost

I wasn’t exactly sure a study for this would ever surface because it really isn’t necessary. Understandably, the issue over surging college tuition cost has been vexing for most people. After all, economics is a difficult concept to grasp, and people (as a collective) usually cannot understand the mistakes they’ve done until some professors in […]

Twitter Is Awesome…

Sorry, did I say the word ‘awesome?’ I was actually referring to the social media platform. I think its great being able to share your statuses, updates and ideas in real time.

I Might Actually Buy Apple For A Change…

I own a lot of Apple products, and I am usually one of the first people who have them once they release. With that being said, it would probably sound very weird if I admit that I currently do not own any shares of Apple. Not even indirect exposure to Apple through a mutual fund […]
