Microsoft’s Surface 2 may be a holiday hit. Opinion: The software giant may be getting it right in tablet computing

SAN FRANCISCO (MarketWatch) — A friend recently told me he was having a hard time finding the newest version of the Microsoft tablet, the Surface 2, in a store in Silicon Valley.

And last Friday, the New York Times ran the headline, “Microsoft Produces a Winner in Tablets” with a mostly glowing review of the 32-gigabyte, $449 version of the Surface 2, which included this phrase: “The software sparkles with thoughtful and innovative touches that will most likely find their way to competing platforms.” More



Yellen Sees No Bubbles; Stockman Sees Them “Everywhere”
There are no asset bubbles – not in equity markets, not in the housing market.

That’s according to Federal Reserve chair nominee Janet Yellen, who was asked about bubbles in her confirmation hearing before the Senate Banking Committee Thursday.

The Wall Street Journal reports that Yellen, citing valuations, told lawmakers, “Stock prices have risen pretty robustly…[but] you would not see stock prices in territory that suggest…bubble-like conditions.”

The S&P 500 (^GSPC) is up 25% this year, hasn’t had a pullback of 10% since fall 2011 and has hit a series of all-time-highs this year, including on Thursday. (This came after Yellen’s “dovish” remarks in the hearing indicating she supports the Fed’s easy money policies, as expected.) More



Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Mints Another Billionaire
Here's proof that "buy and hold" works when it comes to stocks.

In 1980, Stewart Horejsi bought 40 shares of Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway (BRK/A) for $265 each. Then he bought a little more. And a little more after that. Today he's worth at least $1.1 billion, according to Bloomberg Billionaires.

Horejsi (pronounced Horish), 75, eventually amassed 5,800 Class A shares of Berkshire. Even after selling 1,500 of them in 1998, he says he still holds more shares than Bill Gates -- who is the world's richest man, Buffett's bridge partner, and the founder of Microsoft. More



Copper theft 'like an epidemic' sweeping US
Copper is such a hot commodity that thieves are going after the metal anywhere they can find it: an electrical power station in Wichita, Kan., or half a dozen middle-class homes in Morris Township, N.J. Even on a Utah highway construction site, crooks managed to abscond with six miles of copper wire.

Those are just a handful of recent targets across the U.S. in the $1 billion business of copper theft.

"There's no question the theft has gotten much, much worse," said Mike Adelizzi, president of the American Supply Association , a nonprofit group representing distributors and suppliers in the plumbing, heating, cooling and industrial pipe industries. More



Wal-Mart gets new Twinkies first as retailers rush to capitalize on returning snack
Twinkies parent Hostess Brands’ Facebook page has been touting a return date for the cream-filled sponge cake of 7/15/13. There’s even a separate page for the countdown. But retailers like Wal-Mart Stores Inc. WMT are not oblivious of the potential store traffic the return will cause ever since the new Hostess management bought Twinkies and other assets after Hostess filed for bankruptcy protection last year and had to liquidate itself.

So Wal-Mart has stocked the snack cake early in some stores on Friday and is promoting “collectible packaging” of the “first-run-batch” only available at its stores. More

BAHAHAHA Moment of the Week - Thank you very much!
WSJ: Admin. continues to manipulate, bury real statistics
Most of Washington seems to have bought the White House claim that the 36 federal exchanges are finally working, and glory, glory, hallelujah. But if that's really true, then what explains the ongoing secrecy and evasion?

On Wednesday the Health and Human Services Department continued its Victorian-era strip tease and allowed a glimpse into the Affordable Care Act's "enrollment" for November. Out of respect for a free press, reporters ought to boycott these releases because they're so selective that they reveal little about real enrollment. But we'll try to parse the data as best we can without the White House high gloss. More
