  • How To Classify Dividend Increases [View article]
    Hahahahaha, you are so full of hate. This is pathetic ( notice I called your actions pathetic, but that is not the same as calling you pathetic).

    I said " weasel out" for your action. I was referring to your behavior.

    To which you replied " you are a weasel". You were personally offending me, which is not cool. I have been called worse, and am a big boy so I brush off the hatred aside.

    I see where the problem lies - you are having trouble comprehending words that are written down and interpreting them the wrong way. You know, if you do not understand something, the way to gain knowledge is to ask politely and not be obnoxious about it. Otherwise, you are stuck where you began in the first place.

    The lack of reading comprehension led to faulty assumptions used about short selling that completely ignored the facts of the article and my disclosure. Dbtunr was particularly unhappy because he/she got called out, as all his/her comments were full of illogical conclusions. This behavior is best characterized by internet trolls, who pick fights with people for the purpose of picking fights. I fell for it this time, but I had to take a stand for once. The net effect is a waste of my time, as usual.

    Since this conversation is going nowhere and is wasting my time, I am cutting my losses and not going to respond to your ad hominem attacks any more.

    Good luck trolling, maybe if you put in enough effort, this website will generate more comments similar to those under Yahoo Finance articles!

    Haha, why would I apologize to you?

    It is clearly stated that I am long ADP at the top of the article.

    Yet you concluded erroneously that I am short ADP.

    And thanks for calling me names. When your arguments are not strong enough in the first place, it is always best to call people names in order to save face.

    You said:

    "You are not making that case here to buy ADP in the event that everything goes down."

    I simply said buy ADP below $63. Why can't the stock go down because the market is down?

    Your original thesis is that a stock that goes down, is broken. You should stand up for your word, and not weasel out. If you do change it, you should admit being wrong, and apologize for being obnoxious.

    Otherwise, the way I look at it:

    1) It is okay for you to back out of your original thesis that a stock that goes down is broken, by the excuse that the whole market was down

    But it is not ok

    1) When I say the stock is going, to assume that this would happen because the market is down

    I missed BDX at the end of 2012/early 2013.. Now I am just watching it go up and up. I finally understand what Buffett means by " mistakes of omission"

    I am fine when people disagree with me ;-) In fact, whoever investor/s have been selling me shares for years, have been thinking differently than me.

    The P/E ratios and yields I discuss are in order to screen universe of stocks to a more manageable level. Then you go an analyze them one by one, and determine which one/s is/are the best for your capital, subject to existing allocations.

    This is why investing is part art, part science - you can't fit it into a simple formula (unfortunately). Even those who thought index funds was the sure fire formula to invest without looking at things like valuation, suffered in the first decade of 2000

    So if stocks dropped by 50% over the next year, you would not buy them, because they are "broken"?

    In other words, anyone who bought in 2008 - 2009, and not in 2007, is probably a fool in dbtunr's eyes, because they were buying "broken stocks".

    Did you know that price is what you pay, while value is what you get in return?

    Patience is a virtue that few investors posses, hence so many lose money.

  • Stop The Presses: Academics Confirm That Buffett's Success Is No Mystery [View article]
    Thanks for your review David. I have recently been overdosing on Buffett myself to the point where I posted a lot of resources about him on my website:

    http://bit.ly/19ySWM4

    However, I also read a study according to which if you had followed Buffett's picks between 1976 and 2006, you would have earned 25%/year on average. So i think his picks (shares and whole businesses) have probably a great deal to do with his success.

    The float is probably important too, as it provided some magnifying factor. However it is also dangerous if you don't know what you are doing - check AIG's issues.

  • 1993's '100 Best Stocks': How They Fared [View article]
    Hi Kevin,

    That is extremely helpful. I have been using old S&P and Moody's manuals, but did not even think about using SEC filings.

    Based on your input, I think you probably spent more time than I actually thought you did originally.

    Google archives also has decent information on newspapers that have stock quotes.

    I was actually trying to back-test the Dividend Champions of 1991, and got lost in the spinnoffs, mergers, acquisitions of a few companies and just gave up.. Your article gave me inspiration to keep at it.

    I hope you keep writing great articles sir! (like this one)

    Best Regards,

    DGI

    This is an awesome article. You probably spent a lot of time performing this research.

    I am curious, what resources did you use to calculate returns of stocks which are no longer listed? I did some backtesting a while ago and came up with some stocks which are no longer here.. So I could not reasonably calculate what happened to them..

    Your input would be very helpful.

  • Lockheed Martin: A High Yield Dividend Growth Stock [View article]
    Those are good points. I am not sure how modern warfare would evolve in 21st century to be honest, but cyberwars are probably going to be big moneymakers.

    There are things to prevent you from buying every time. I get your point on JNJ and KO but I still find them safer. I did this by answering the following questions for myself:

    How many products is KO selling and in how many countries, and what is the product and geographic diversification of revenues vs those of LMT?

    Which one is "safer" - a company dependent on 80% of its sales on a single customer or a company that is dependent on hundreds of million of customers?

    Well, to play devils advocate, many companies that grow EPS and DPS over time end up going higher and higher in stock price.

    However, I do prefer to buy on the way down.. You might get a dip in early 2014, if we get another debt ceiling BS

    That's good information. But what percentage of annual revenues are derived from the F-35?

    This doesn't add anything new that wasn't addressed in the article.

    It is a typo, should have said return on assets.
