  • AT&T And The Dividend Controversy [View article]
    Paying down debt in this case is a prudent capital budgeting decision that could easily reduce the company's risk profile and therefore raise the stock price by an amount far greater than the incremental dividend increase.

  • The Fed Should Not Raise Rates In December...Here's Why [View article]
    The output gap BEGAN with the election of Barack Obama, and its removal will correspond with the EXIT of his policies---by either a democrat or republican. Like Jimmy Carter's malaise, we need lesser regulation and lower taxes. Plain and simple.

  • Fed Liftoff Is Good News [View article]
    Nah! Analysts think we should keep interest rates low or even lower! SURE! Take 7 trillion from savers and retirees and give it to borrowers who can't even handle their CURRENT debt....and we wonder why there is such poor growth!

  • The Economic News Isn't Getting Better [View article]
    Bah....stop looking to self aggrandizing Government officials as solutions to the worlds problems. They are the cause, not the cure. We have crony socialists as Democratic leaders and crony capitalists in the Republican leadership.

    Good example of how options can be structured to control risk and improve return profiles.

    Excellent to see that Seeking Alpha has changed their minds on "pure option" articles. At least, until...........

  • Retirement Strategy: What Is The Best Strategy For Dividend Growth Investors To Take As The Fed Begins Hiking Interest Rates? [View article]
    To all you put/call guys: you can try and sell puts and calls when the "implied volatility" of the options is well above historical norms. This often occurs near earnings releases. You can get I.V. information from

  • Wal-Mart Wants To Be Target, Amazon, And Costco... Oh No [View article]
    WalMart...stick to your knitting. Always low prices...Always! Forget politically correct "we got to pay 'em more!" shinola that won't make it past the next election. Get some extra pairs of eyes to stop the pilferage (and some good lawyers to pursue the cases) and you'll be fine.

  • The Fed Should Not Raise Rates - They Are High Already [View article]
    I kept hoping to see an example or suggestion of WHAT fiscal policy action would succeed....but then again, they never have in the past, so using history to find an example if surely a hopeless task.

    In contrast, if we raised interest rates to 2 or 3 percent, savers and retirees could earn a risk free plausible return on their prudence, cash would flow into the US from stagnant Euroscleritic socialist ratholes, and large numbers of over leveraged individuals and shell corporations would collapse. Combined with 1980s style deregulation to encourage entrepreneurship, we might even see growth exceed 3% once in a while.

    Net metering, I believe, is the cute requirement that utilities BUY your electric power at RETAIL, not WHOLESALE, rates? Trying to think of any other industries where this occurs.....
