  • Introducing The Millennial Stock Portfolio (Part 4) [View article]
    Musk did not build Tesla from the ground up. He was a significant investor to the company a short while after creation. He used his money from the sale of PayPal (which, also contrary to common news reports, wikipedia.orghe did not build from the ground up) to take Tesla from an engineering project to a production car company. After he became an investor, a nasty battle between him and Eberhard (that started when each person blamed the other for drastically missing the budget) caused a lot of press and a lawsuit, resulting in Eberhard being kicked out of the company, and Elon being allowed to represent himself as a founder, since his money and involvement were critical to the company.

    If it falls below $18-$19 it would be breaking major support, so be careful if that occurs.

    High P/E ratio today - yes. But you do not invest for today, you invest in the future growth potential of a company.

    Why can't Apple double? Based on earnings projections it sure could if it is given a slightly higher multiple in the coming years.

    The younger millennials, yes, but the older millennials are now 34 and are starting to make real money. And low-end GoPro is $129.

    I cannot argue with your rules. But with 15 years until he is an adult, adding in a few high growth names is not a bad idea. It also adds diversification.

    Yes EMES is another pure play in the sector. I agree it is similar to catching a falling knife, but as a long-term investment the fundamentals are there and that is why I mentioned technical levels

  • Low-Priced Stocks To Avoid: Round 6 [View article]
    I appreciate your effort, but you lack any solid reasons to avoid MILL. If anything the turnaround that is underway is a positive. If you took the time to do real research on a company and not picking a few random numbers you could give recos that have some meat behind them.

  • Top 2 Water Stocks And ETFs [View article]
    La - Thanks for the comment. The two stocks mentioned (PNR and FLS) are not intended to be income plays. They are chosen for capital appreciation and exposure to the industrial aspect of the water trend.

    77052 - For the average individual investor I will almost always lean towards the ETF, in this case PHO.

    Thanks for adding XYL to the mix. It is not as undervalued as PNR and FLS, but definitely one to watch.

  • 3 Stocks Offering High Income And Captial Appreciation [View article]
    Here is dividend info from last distribution (from OAK website):

    The distribution is treated as a partnership distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Non-U.S. holders of Class A units are generally subject to U.S. federal withholding at a rate of 30% (subject to reduction by applicable treaty or other applicable exception) on their share of U.S. source distributions and certain other types of U.S. source income realized by OAK. With respect to interest income, however, no withholding is generally required if proper certification (on an IRS Form W-8) of a beneficial owner's foreign status has been filed with the withholding agent. Non-U.S. holders generally must provide the withholding agent with a properly completed IRS Form W-8 to obtain any reduction in withholding.
    The distribution consists of the following components:
    Portfolio Interest Income (U.S.) $0.370
    Qualified Dividend Income (U.S.) $0.680
    Distribution Per Unit $1.050

    5bandit5 - thanks for the comment. I have never believed in waiting to buy before a dividend, because the stock price will automatically adjust itself the on the ex-dividend date.

    TAS - Thanks for the comment and you make a great point. When to get out (sell) is difficult for any stock or ETF.
