  • This Portfolio Has 50% Upside And Will Outperform The Markets Again In 2014-2015 [View article]
    Spoiled Brat seems like his namesake. Stop calling everyone out. Your profile reads like a very bad sales pitch. Anyone who actually calls you based on that deserves to lose all of their money.

  • Dividends Don't Matter In Retirement Either [View article]
    Dividend growth investing is for lazy people who want to take the "Stress" out of investing. Growth beats dividends every time. I love seeing all of these negative comments on here; it really goes to show how irrational humans can be. Bottom line, do what you are most comfortable with. I manage my mother in laws IRA account and it is mainly based on dividends but I also monitor price movements and buy/sell stocks based of technicals and fundamentals. Maybe retirees would be better suited to this style since it will tax their mental capacity and keep them from falling into mental stagnation...

  • U.S. grounds the F-35 [View news story]
    I think it is moronic that the taxpayers have to continue to fund Lockheed Martin's incompetence. Time for Lockheed Martin to eat some of the excess costs that have developed as a direct result of their horrible management of the development of this aircraft.

  • Buy Apple Now - Second-Quarter iPhone Sales Predicted To Beat Consensus [View article]
    Would not recommend buying here. Proprietary indicators with a great track record are saying sell. Would wait for it to dip lower to Mid-80s.

  • Is Exelon A Buy? [View article]
    You are about 6 months late... Bought when they were in the 27 range, and I will continue to hold. I don't care how "bad" their management is... Look at the dividend and the cash flow. As energy prices continue to go up, EXC will benefit as well as all utilities. Technicals say that it is a buy currently, but I am sure it will drop down to more reasonable price in the coming months.

  • Herbalife Could Damn Well Be The Next MBIA [View article]

    QTR was stating that for a LBO (leveraged buy-out) to happen, it would need to be financed by at least $9 billion the vast majority of which would be debt. No bank is going to loan that kind of money without a history of clean audit opinions on the underlying company's financials.

    Great article, QTR. I hope the bear's position ends up being realized down the line.

  • Bullard: Dec. taper on table; Nov. jobs report key [View news story]
    Negative interest rates on bank deposits at the Fed would have a good idea before expanding the Fed balance sheet so significantly. If banks do start lending again, velocity of money will start to move up thus increasing the risk of significant inflation. The Fed would have to take massive losses on its securities portfolio to drain all the liquidity it has pumped into the system. This would cause huge damage to public (domestic and international) confidence in the Fed's ability to successsfully implement monetary policy.

  • In victory for oil industry, EPA proposes lower renewable fuel quotas [View news story]
    It isn't renewable at all because, generally, you need to burn coal or natural gas to produce ethanol, and it has a lower return on energy invested than traditional gasoline. What a joke. Just another government handout to farmers that is rightfully getting cut.

  • Short CenturyLink: Look Past Stock Buybacks And Dividends For A 45% Return [View article]

    Great article, but you seem to side-step the fact that CTL's dividend is in the top ten within the S&P 500. There is a good chance that your investment thesis will materialize over the next several years, but you don't really point out any specific short-term catalysts that will drop the stock price to $15 within the next 6 months. As long as the dividend continues to be paid with no more decreases, the stock will find support in the low 30s/ high 20s.

    Again, great article. Thanks for all of the research, Stephen.
