    HCN the danger of chasing dividends ... i considered buying SRZ back in December but didn't due to lack of dividend ... it has now tripled.

    • vireoman: Funny. Not a single SA article focused just on HCN this yr. Meanwhile, we're up to our necks in ORAN HAL NOK CHK. Cramer got one right, tho.

    • vireoman: I know. Even blind squirrels find the occasional acorn.

    • DAG1996: i guess no one can predict buyouts and HCN wasn't a particularly attractive stock otherwise so its understandable that no one wrote about it

    • DAG1996: Did Cramer make a call on HCN? Did he like it? By the way, I happen to love HAL ... bought a couple months ago and already up 25%

    • vireoman: Ull find the Cramer call in the SA archives. HAL is solid. Just comparing the glut of articles versus the stocks that have doubled this yr.

    • vireoman: Pier One Imports, for god's sake. There's one around the corner I've never visited. I thought they were due for extinction. Never know.

    • DAG1996: I do know that Pier One was another one of Cramer's calls ... he misses some like everyone else, but he's not nearly as bad as some say

    • DAG1996: the number of articles about a stock is one of the best tells ... when there's a ton, that means the stock was a great buy a month ago

    • DAG1996: thats why i look for the ones nobody is talking about, which si how i came across HCN. just wish i would've bought. can't buy em all though

    • vireoman: a similar approach is the articles that get no comments & bore people to tears (eg WLP). I did well w UNH. Waiting for lower prices on WLP

    • DAG1996: agree. i love "boring" stocks. don't know much about WLP or UNH since AET is one of my largest holdings so i can't buy anymore healthcare
      8/22/12
    • DAG1996: i do know that they're both good companies and healthcare is a great place to be right now

    • John Rayhall: the 5 year chart on HCN sucked big time but the 2 year WOW! lol. Pier one could have let all of us retire if we caught the bottom easier

    • John Rayhall: Said than done though

    • DAG1996: started watching HCN in early May from this article. http://seekingalpha.com/a/cafj

    • DAG1996: would've bought if the June market correction didn't make me focus on existing holdings

    • John Rayhall: Would have been a nice play oh well onto the nest one :)
