  • Buffett Exited Exxon Mobil, So Should You [View article]
    I stopped listening to Warren Buffet years ago...you know back when he was actually paying his taxes and not fighting with the IRS...and also back when he would admit that his Secretary is a "salaried" employee and he makes most of his income through capital gains...and before he started making mistakes by recommending GE, GS, AXP.....and not recommending quality like AAPL and SBUX...The sage may be losing it.

  • Illustrating Inflation Vs. Dividend Growth [View article]
    Just a great job on showing the power of rising dividends from strong companies, though some of the companies are no longer growing fast enough in the earnings department, I think it is a good staring list that any investor can expand on. Good job. I am Long PEP and XOM.

  • Retirement Strategy: Save Money Do It Yourself (Part 16) [View article]
    I have been doing it myself for close to a decade now, and the one thing I found out about these pros....is that they do not care about your portfolio more than you....It is my money, and I would rather control it myself, but...again I do believe if someone does not enjoy investing or like watching the market...they should definetly try out a an advisor from one of the discount houses like Fidelity, TD Ameritrade, or Shwabb...

    Good job RS...

  • Apple Adds $12.5 Billion To Cash, Now $116 Per Share [View article]
    The amazing thing about this company is that it trades like a value stock...I am lucky to own some shares, but always wonder why anyone would ever buy crap stocks like HPQ, RIMM or even CSCO....these "Blue Chips" are not the real "Blue Chip" that AAPL is ...why do people buy junk?

  • Are Dividend Stocks A Substitute For Bonds? [View article]
    Some dividend stocks that yield more than 10 year treasuries that will probably perform better than treasury bonds over the next ten years:
    T, GE, JNJ, PNG, MCD, XOM, MSFT, INTC, PEP, KO, IBM, MKC, SJM, ...and on and on and on. Jeez these companies might be around longer than the country itself...lol

  • Are Dividend Stocks A Substitute For Bonds? [View article]
    Where there any Bond ETF 10 years ago? and if there were was the fees reasonable? It is real simple, learn how to read a balance sheet and invest in Dividend Arisocrats through a DRIP plan. I dare you to give me a bond (treasuries) that has beaten a DRIP plan with PEP, XOM, JNJ, MCD, CHD, etc...over the last 20 years. You can't and guess what I can almost bet you that these "RISKY" companies will be around for another 20 year and will trounce bonds with little or no brokerage fees...Read and Learn.

  • Dividends Give Investors 11 Percent Raise [View article]
    The key to great dividend stock investing is the growth in dividend rate increases form some of the greatest companies. I began to realize this about a decade ago when I read Jeremy Siegal's book "Stock for the Long Run". I have created an IRA portfolio for the ages, just because of what he wrote. I also know that many of the great contributors here at Seeking Alpha also believe in great dividend investing. I recommend Dividend4life. Why people are not taught that they can be better than average is beyound me--Death to high expense mutual funds!!!

  • The Unbridled Truth About Dividend Contribution To Shareholder Profitability [View article]
    Chuck, nice work as usual....I think many investors do not understand that when companies pay dividends they are expressing to the investor that they have a strong balance sheet (most of the time) and that they believe in their company in the present and the future. Obviously, one must always do their own examination before investing in any company whether they pay dividends or not....but as you and many others have shown, when a great company shares its profits it attracts more investors....

  • Retirement Strategy For Those 50 And Older [View article]
    Supplementing your income from covered call is a good idea, but remember not everyone is interested in options or are comfortable with them...Citi, as well as BAC, GE, could have been spotted having problems if one had read their balance sheets...as I recall these companies were taking on serious debt. One may have gotten out of these with smaller losses---I am not saying there would have not been losses, but as a general rule I would have only held one bank out of a portfolio of 12 to 15 stocks.....Full discolsure...I did lose close to 40% of my portfolio's worth during the 08/09 crash...but because they were quality stocks and because I had added to the lows back into these stocks...my return is well over 100% since then..I did not go to "cash" like all of the end of the world crowd..and I am better for it..to me the risk was not having quality equities...CASH was not the solution..to me anyhow.
