  • Forget Big Oil, Buy Pipelines [View article]
    Midstream pipeline MLPs are THE way to play the crash in oil prices. The midstream oil and natural gas pipelines have been beaten up irrationally in the fearful flight from all things energy, and all have high potential upside and pay solid dividends while you wait. I'm long OKS and am adding more on down days. If you've got a fairly long term (1-3 year) window, this is a great place to invest. Great article, thanks!

  • JPMorgan Chase: Ignore Short-Term Drama And Buy [View article]
    WFC is pretty much fully valued at this point. BAC, JPM and C are all somewhat undervalued and SHOULD outperfom WFC going forward. That's the benefit. Nothing wrong with WFC, just don't want to pay full price for it right now.

  • Why Bank Of America Should Trade For $22 In 2015 [View article]
    Reading this article while watching BAC reach a new 52 week high today sure makes holding BAC worth the wait. Long BAC and JPM thru 2015. Another great article Josh, thank you.

  • Oil & Gas Stocks: Pain, Then More Pain... When Is The Gain? [View article]
    For those with a long term view, now is the time to go long on:

    1. Majors with deep balance sheets that can ride this out and be in a perfect position to scoop up the smaller players on the cheap. Personally, I like XOM and BP here.

    2. Energy stocks that have been beaten up irrationally in the flee from all things energy. I like midstream NG MLP NGLS and OKS here.

    Great article Richard, thank you.

  • Update: As Oil Plunges, Buy BP On The Way Down [View article]
    This is an oustanding opportunity to buy/add BP shares while there's blood in the streets, or in this case, in the pipeline. Long BP and XOM and adding to both, also looking at NLGS and OKS, both midstream NG MLPs that are wrongly getting whacked along with all things energy.

    Opportunities like this don't come along every day people, so get a little greedy while everyone else is fearful.

  • Some Thoughts On Berkshire's Procter & Gamble, Duracell Swap [View article]
    I think Buffett simply saw the opportunity to trade an overvalued PG stock for a cash flow rich operating company and yet another tremendous brand name that he could improve, and to do it while avoiding the big tax bill. Also, consider the possible synergies with his solar energy projects and BYD, one of the largest makers of cell phone batteries. A typical outstanding Buffett deal if ever there was one.

  • Pabrai still bullish on BofA and Citi [View news story]
    "My feeling is that if a bank has proper reserves and it’s trading well below tangible book value, that is an undervalued bank."

    Short and to the point, and I agree 100%. Long BAC and JPM.

  • Financial sector leads the way on strong jobs number [View news story]
    "BAC has the upward potential of more than $30 in the next couple of years. "

    I agree, $25 - $30 over the next 2-3 years, along with increased dividends and share buybacks. They NEED to start lowering the number of shares outstanding.

  • Building A Core Investment Portfolio For The Next 20 Years: Lockheed Martin [View article]
    No, I believe what Keallen is talking about would be more like the Reagan years - a strong national defense and a pro growth administration.

  • Building A Core Investment Portfolio For The Next 20 Years: Automatic Data Processing [View article]
    Excellent article, and I like your 20 year strategy. I'm in much the same position, building a long term portfolio with a 20+ year time frame in mind. DIS, ADP and MMM are all excellent companies, and are all on my watch list. LMT is a great pick too, but I personally prefer GD. You've got a new follower, thanks again for the great article.

    Nice summary. Might I suggest adding Tom Gayner and the Markel (MKL) portfolio to the list in the future?

  • JPMorgan settles $681M self-dealing Texas Shale Trust case - Bloomberg [View news story]
    I'm sure they could afford Detroit at current real estate values, but the problem is who would want to rent and live there?

  • JPMorgan settles $681M self-dealing Texas Shale Trust case - Bloomberg [View news story]
    No, I do not. You're saying that Dimon and the board use their position as the largest shareholders to put in a compensation package that somehow enriches them by "sticking it up the keester" of the shareholders? Of which thet are among the largest? Do you see why your argument makes no sense now?
