  • The Safety Valve Of Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    "SI = Seeking Ice"

    Dave

    I'm surprised. I'm sure that must be a typo because I know that you know that for the DGI that SI = Seeking Income. :-) Of course I guess there's the whole "fridge" thing to consider too though...

    "Stock buybacks reduce future EPS (earnings per share), which may determine management bonuses, who knows?"

    Is that a typo?

    Thanks. I guess the way I look at going deep into due-diligence is like a quote I heard years ago, not exactly sure where I heard it, but it said, "you have to sift through a lot of dirt to find gold." And gold can be that nugget of information that says don't buy this as well as that nugget that says do buy this.

    I had to look very close to even believe it was Buffett. I liked his comment about stocks going up without earnings increasing and "dividends not rising." Makes me wonder if he knew then where he was headed financially. Also, the things he points out 50 years later haven't really changed, have they?

    Hi Bob

    When I retired I thought I was still a young whippersnapper and looked forward to lots of golf and recreational activities. 3 back surgeries later the snap has gone out of the whip. I'm blessed that I'm still able to function normally for the most part but have to deal with chronic pain on a daily basis. Funny how life changes the plans we make. Take care,

    Thanks. Glad you got something out of it.

    When I'm traveling (driving) I will usually always pick a McDonalds to stop for a bathroom break. I know their restrooms will generally be clean, unlike a lot of service stations and truck stops I used to stop at in my younger days. Plus I like McDonalds coffee, and at my age it means I'll be stopping again a little later down the road. Just a vicious circle. :)

    You're welcome. And I don't take your comments about fees or funds as bashing professional investment folks. There are certainly some good RIA's, CFP's, and fund managers out there who provide an excellent service to their clients. But there are also those that don't, just like it is in just about anything else where there is both good and bad.

    "I think the actor in the commercial was E. G. Marshall."

    I remember there used to be one where John Houseman, who had a great voice, talked about "making money the old fashioned way. They earn it." But I think that was for Smith Barney. Probably 30 years ago though.

    "Youse guys will never take me into the 21st Century using spreadsheets"

    Reminds me of a guy I used to work with. Said one time that he was NOT going to grow old gracefully, he was going kicking and screaming and fighting it every step of the way.

    Thanks. You are absolutely right. The value of companies change just like stock prices change, maybe not as often but nevertheless they don't remain static. That's why we need to keep doing our due diligence after we buy just like before we buy. May mean we continue to add to our positions after we buy as the companies get better. Thanks for pointing that out.

    Haven't tried Yahoo but I've tried other websites that allowed you to enter a portfolio on line. Just kept always coming back to my basic spreadsheet though. I must be one of those old dogs they talk about... :-)
