PetMed Express Inc. (PETS) – a nationwide pet pharmacy that delivers prescription and non prescription pet medications for dogs, horses, and cats out directly to the consumer. PetMed Express also sells pet accessories, pet food,health, and nutritional supplements. PetMed’s products are bought over the Phone, and via the Internet.

Not only in a recent blog post (9/21/2011) did I announce a PoulTrend Alert! I discussed how this company was going to blow out analysis predictions. As announced Yesterday, PetMed Express Inc. (PETS) not only increased Revenues for the quarter from $50.5 million, from $45.1 million a year prior. (PETS) closed trading up $1.24 +(11.00%) at $12.51. Over the past 52 weeks (PETS) has traded between $16.16-$8.51. However over the past month the company has been trading in upward fashion now eclipsing the 6 month trading average.

With a dividend payout close to 0.13 a quarter or 0.50 a share each year for the long portfolio investors this is a wonderful investment for the future. I expect this company to continue to out beat analysis predictions for some time. Currently I Rate PetMed Express Inc. (PETS) a BUY/HOLD, with a Target Price of $15.00.

Research In Motion Ltd. (NASDAQ:RIMM) – are a manufacturer, marketer, and designer of wireless solutions for the worldwide mobile communications market. RIM provides platforms + solutions for access to information, including E-Mail, Voice, Instant Messaging, Short Message Service (SMS), Internet and intranet – based apps and browsing. RIM’s Portfolio includes Blackberry Wireless solution, of which is their Handheld product line.

Not only did (NASDAQ:RIMM) drop over 6% yesterday but has been on a downtrend for sometime. Many are questioning this company as a company to invest in or to stay away from.

Currently I Rate (RIMM) a HOLD/SELL!  There will be news someday down the road that may spike the shares, however there should be steady downtrend until stock hits $12.50. At that point in time would I then possible think about investing in this company. As we have all seen trends, especially now fade, and disappear faster than most people can imagine. I am not saying that this company is done, and over but I think for now that RIMM Will be a lost company for sometime.

Not only have they lost a large share in the cell phone market, but it seems as though the company is unsure of where they are heading next. With this company however having virtually no Debt, it would not surprise me if they do not pick up a company or two over the next year. Possibly even selling some of their patients off, and reworking their phones which could take some time to get up and running.  As there is now new management involved I cannot see them doing anything spectacular over the next 6-8 months.

 

Currently I do not hold a position in PetMed Express Inc.(PETS) or Research In Motion (RIMM) nor plan to initiate a position in the next 3 trading days.

There is no question about it these three giants are literally going to be head to head, at war with one another.  All 3 of these giants want there share of the Mobile Cell phone world, and the technology needed to stay at the top, being #1 in this sector is there ultimate goal.

As of this morning 8/17/2011

Apple (AAPL) and Starbucks (SBUX) announced that they will be hooking up with one another. Apple of which will be allowing Starbucks to have an APP on there mobile devices for free. Why is this important. Well back in 2007 it was estimated that 2/3rds of the WORLD drinks coffee.

Yes coffee is getting more expensive. Which may turn people off from wanting to go to a Starbucks, However Starbucks environmental structure is was makes them the leaders in this market. Starbucks offers a hot spot both for coffee drinkers and non. They offer free wi-fi, have point program, and the environment in these facilities is high class. Not to mention some are opened 24/7. (Plus, there has been talk of adding wine to the menu.) Now what can beat that. Why is this good for (APPL) well if Apple (AAPL) has an awesome app with Starbucks they will be able to not only promote Starbucks but it will keep the Starbucks lovers with the Apple Phones. Catch my drift.

Apple (AAPL) may also buy out SHARP! Would this be a good thing, of course. Why they want to make sure they keep up with the 3D technology for their Apple I phones, and IPADS. Will this go threw, probably not any time soon. If anything Apple (AAPL) should focus on buying out LG in doing this they would get the 3D technology for the Screens, and than own the LG MOBILE phones of which again would be keeping them in the Fight towards the top for the Mobile Phone explosion that we are heading into. LG as of 2010 had 116 million cell phone shipments, if they owned the rights of them they could totally take 35% or more of the market share and compete with the Android.
Microsoft (MSFT) is supposedly in the works of want to buy out Motorola Strictly for the patents. Will they get it, probably not, however their next move to stay a float in this world is to get on the band wagon of the Mobile internet world and as fast as possible. Everyone has already been saying it could be possible that the Cloud could kill Microsoft. Will this happen I highly doubt it, but it would not surprise me if you seem them make a move at Biadu.com some day down the road. Or make a move to try and hook up with Blackberry (RIM). Many say the Blackberry is over, however I tend to disagree, for a business worker Blackberry still has the best phones of which are directed towards the business person.

Below is a picture of the estimated Smart Phone Cell phones by 2015

Now 631 Million is obviously just a measurement. I estimate it will actually grow to 720 Million Plus! This being as if the Price of these Smart phones drops the more people will buy them. Since Google has now bought out Motorola (MMI) They may not have a problem offering the phone under 25$ or free on any network just because they can, and at the end of the day they still win as these phones obviously will be pre set to all Google’s works in the making like Google Plus, and their browser.

Now you can see Microsoft (MSFT) can still make some moves here and take 25% or more of the Market with a few upgrades. Meaning they need to buy out Blackberry (RIM) and than that 11.1% share could be there’s for the keeping.
Google (GOOG) right now is in the front when it comes to winning the war right now. With their purchase of Motorola (MMI) they have taken the first big hit at Apple (AAPL) and Microsoft (MSFT). I cannot wait to see what happens in the days ahead! This will be something epic to follow.

Disclosure- Currently I do not hold a positions in any of the companies mentioned above. Nor do I plan to initiate a position in the next 3 trading days.
