    Interesting. The one here, though I don't go very often, is fine.....the wife just doesn't care for that kind of food. I've been to a couple of Mickey Dee's that I would never sit foot in again, even emailed corporate about them they were so nasty....

    Not yet Business, so often, seems to go around politics......but no, not really too worried about that part......more about worldwide growth and the long advance of this bull market.....

    change usually is good as old mgt. gets complacent............... change for the sake of change is usually not good, just confusion which actually sets a company back further. Saw plenty of that in my corporate days..........

    Yea, I agree about the cuts, seems it will have to be bigger and better than that to turn things around much. I'm holding off until stock goes down a bunch or something good happens (without taking the stock up too much), so I prefer for the stock to come down.....

    No doubt to your statement. However, when I wrote that PEP article three yrs ago, many felt that KO was such a better buy, but I felt the value in PEP was so much better, at the time.......and it was. Don't know about you, but I buy stocks for both dividends and growth based on risk I'm taking at the time....PEP won out, don't really care what they sell or make.....

  • Retirement Mistakes And Investment Solutions [View article]
    Kevin,

    Thanks for the kind words. I'm like you in that many of the articles on here generate tons of comments on subjects not worthy enough to even read....though I might be biased. The truth be told this article was rejected as it was "about personal finance", until I complained and had to add the list of stocks, which I had no intention of doing as it had little to do with my message.......I don't write much, some 60 articles in 3-4 years as I don't write for money, just when I see something to write about, and in fact, find that my time is better spent looking for opportunities than spending it writing about something I already know about, but do it just to share most of the time.....really, if someone is so great at investing to show-off here, why are they writing so much....ah, but I digress....

    I'm 4 years retired, and take nothing from my IRA accounts, and when forced to, I will simply transfer it over to my personal account to reinvest. Keep spending to a level under budget, plan for the unexpected, don't chase yield or stocks, and have a plan (and stick to it).

  • Do You Sell After A Dividend Cut? [View article]
    The very first article that I wrote for SA was http://seekingalpha.co..., which was about dividend cuts, and how they presented an "possible" opportunity. Still think that, and always will. The more something is said such as "I sell a dividend cut" becomes accepted, it will almost always be wrong......that is one of the reasons why contrary opinion is usefull in the market place.....Oh, yea, I loaded up on GE back then, and then also bought Century Tel a year or so ago. I did own PBI, wich cut and sold off, I did not buy, but later sold for a profit when it rallied back, my mistake for not buying more, but something told me that at the point that did not wish to add but sell given the chance. Popular "wisdom" is usually not good wisdom......

  • McDonald's: A Matter Of Taste [View article]
    I would not call my update article on MCD exactly high praise, but then I bought mine long ago, with a 450% gain in price so far, with a yoc of over 15%, so I can't complain that I paid too much, in fact, it has outperformed the market by a factor or way over two.......yea, I';ll stick with it........Guess one just has to know when to buy when others are selling....
