  • Union Pacific: A Quick Observation On The Energy Related Sell-Off [View article]
    Thanks for reading Swaps.... I pulled the trigger yesterday and bought a small batch at $112.66 and plan to chase it down as it dips. I plan to be in this name for the long term.

    I think the strike will negatively effect intermodal during the first quarter. Weak numbers next quarter because of this event could be a nice buying opportunity imo

    Hi Six,

    I've been a proud owner of both WFC and KO for a few years now, so it appears we agree that those are some good choices!

    Yes, but all the companies I rolled the proceeds into also pay rising dividends. The dividend growth rates are either comparable or even more impressive as well. With the exception of GILD, which just announced its first dividend, the other companies all bumped their dividend by double digits and will likely continue to do so.

    BND and the other ETFs I plan on buying will be purchased with new money.

    To say I don't need bonds now might be correct, but I would rather dollar cost average a small amount into them once or twice a year starting now, as opposed to buying a bunch of them later on down the road. Also, if the market tanks, I can sell the bonds and go bargain shopping for equities.

    Perhaps, but I also have the option of buying them (XOM, CVX, as well as COP) back, as I don't really seeing them skyrocketing in price any time soon. DIS and CSCO have already returned 8-10% each and I feel more confident in the prospects of GILD, MSFT, and MET than either of those oil stocks in the near to medium term.

    BND will be purchased with new money.

    Joshua,

    I'll probably load up on some oil stocks when/if oil looks like its bottoming. I like Dale's idea too, if my memory serves me correct Canada has a nice correlation to black gold.

    That's a good idea. I'll definitely give them a call before I buy any funds.

    Thanks for the suggestions Brad, I'll be looking into the Int'l bond fund. Might consider VT too.

    Hi mdwork,

    I considered a target date fund for this, but ultimately decided on the 5 etfs to give myself more control over the process. In other words, I enjoy the freedom of being able to decide which allocations are right for me at any point in time as opposed to allowing Vanguard to do it for me automatically.


    Thanks for reading.

    Hi Bruce,

    I suppose I should have put sarcasm brackets around the "lucky soul" line. I probably should manage my taxes a little better, however, so point taken. As for the foreign funds and the dividends, I'm not sure it matters what type of account they are held in regarding taxes as this is more of a concern of Vanguard when they ultimately distribute them.

    Thanks for reading and the comment.
