  • Keystone XL foes mount new challenge by linking it to Enbridge project [View news story]
    The pipeline should be built. If the oil doesn't travel by pipeline, it will continue to travel by rail. What's potentially worse for the environment? Rail cars that can derail or a stationary pipeline? Get real environmentalists!

  • Dow Chemical: 3% Dividend Plus Likely Price Appreciation In 2014 [View article]
    The Money Madam,

    The cutting of the dividend goes along with DOW's cyclical nature. The guideline to sell cyclicals is after the 2nd or 3rd time the Fed raises interest rates. With that being said, we probably still have a while to go before reaching that point.

  • This Small-Cap ETF Outperforms The Averages By A Wide Margin [View article]
    You should consider owning VBK in combination with a large cap ETF such as VTI. You should also consider some international exposure for balance, maybe 20%.

    cevans7949,

    Sorry, I have to disagree with you. VBK had better performance than VBR, so there was no goofing in this case. Here's the chart that proves it: http://yhoo.it/1iEwpHB
    Consider that an in the park home run.

  • Jeremy Siegel: Correct About 2013, Sees Dow At 18,000 In 2014 [View article]
    The market was due for a correction. News from China was probably a trigger, but there were also other countries reporting negative news. Investors are probably taking profits after last year's large run-up. There's no need to play with the big boys. Just dollar cost average into a diverse basket of stocks and you'll do well over the long-term.

  • Huge Sell-Off Could Be A Buying Opportunity For Nu Skin [View article]
    kevtrading,

    That's why the stock sold off as it did. Buying it at this point is a bet that it will be business as usual in China. Yes, it is a risky bet, but with risk, comes a higher reward if the thesis is correct.

    thorgood4,

    Yes, we are in an economic recovery. To confirm the economic recovery, look at GDP data and the fact that the Fed is beginning its tapering of the bond buying program. http://bit.ly/JER9ci

    berry,

    That is exactly what I explained in the article. It's a cyclical stock, which means you own it during an economic upturn and sell after the Fed raises rates twice (before the inevitable downturn). Cyclical stocks are not for everyone.

    Since you're retired, you would be better suited to get an ETF like VTI which is diversified across the entire stock market.

  • This Low-Cost ETF Outperforms The S&P 500 And The Dow [View article]
    Happy Guy,

    Nice picture. VTI has as much upside as the overall market. I can't say what will happen in the short-term, but in the long-term (5, 10, 20 yrs. down the road should be great for VTI. We're due for a correction in the market, but that should be temporary.

    vincester,

    If you like Vanguard, VBK is a small-cap growth ETF. It beats out VTI, VXF, RSP, and PKW.

    I see that the equal weight RSP fund does beat VTI, but VXF beats them both.

    Lawrence,

    Thank you for bringing up VXF - that's another great ETF. Keep in mind that the expense ratio is 2x that of VTI and the dividend is less. However, it looks like VXF's price appreciation will compensate for that as it returned over 10% in the past 10 yrs.

  • Comfort Systems USA To Rise On The Upcoming Improvement In Non-Residential Construction [View article]
    Robin,

    Yes, 48% earnings growth is aggressive. Even half of that growth annually would be a good catalyst for the stock. You may see a large jump in revenue growth after 2014 combined w/ increased margins. If the industry turns around significantly in about 1 yr. would it be unreasonable to expect a 30% increase in revenue w/ an 18% increase in gross margin to obtain 48% earnings growth?
