    You were smart enough to buy some at 20!

    I have never used calls or puts or options of any kind. Maybe some day.

    It's not easy pushing the buy button with so much blood in the water. 2009 was a great time to buy pretty much any stock - also scary as hell.

  • The Bull Trap That Is Philip Morris International [View article]
    AP:

    Thanks for your insight. Off-brands are a little troublesome to all products, including tobacco, but only a little troublesome. People tend to be loyal to their Gillette razors, their Huggies diapers, their Heinz ketchup and their Marlboros. And only latter of those is addictive!

    Looking forward to PM and MO grabbing a slice of the ganja market one day, too!

  • McDonald's Corporation: On 'Low D' Notice [View article]
    bg:

    $15-$25? Why not $500 per hour? That's as likely to happen as $25 for MCD workers.

  • McDonald's Corporation: On 'Low D' Notice [View article]
    Like chowder, I am happy to hold MCD, collect the divvies and wait for them to work out their problems. As richjoy says, MCD has fallen out of favor before and responded; so many great companies do.

    I was happy to add at 91 on the recent dip and now own a full position of what I consider a core holding.

    As for things I have to worry about in my life, MCD is well down in the pecking order. I'm much more concerned about the low level of beer we have in our house right now.

    I would have liked to have seen the author's reply to your comment.

    It's very difficult to offer real evidence to counter addiction.

    All:

    I am going to bed soon and I have a busy weekend ahead of me. I umpire youth baseball and the fall leagues in Charlotte are in full swing (pun intended). Plus, I need to spend time with my wife and watch some football (not necessarily in that order).

    So if I don't respond to your comments in my typically timely fashion, you'll know why. I do promise I'll get to them eventually.

    Have a good weekend, everybody.

    Your opinion is that it was my opinion, of that we can agree!

  • Performance: How Do I Measure Thee? Let Me Count The Ways [View article]
    RAS:

    My favorite color is Mango Tango (Crayola color #FF8243). Thanks for asking!

    Seriously, my head is spinning from all the stuff you gave me to think about here. In summary, though, you and I have similar investing goals ... so I'll never even be tempted to tell you what you should invest in!!

  • DGI: Should You Focus More On Share Count Growth Rather Than Share Price Volatility? [View article]
    Nicholas:

    I don't really focus on share count growth, but I do focus on income. And given that I reinvest my dividends, it results in share count growth. So we're pretty much on the same page here.

    Thanks for the interesting read.

    If only I could have "liked" your comment twice, I would have.

    John:

    I already had some carryover losses, so I haven't cashed in any from GE yet. What's funny is that even though the position is "in the black," my cost basis is still "in the red," so if I sold a bunch of GE tomorrow I'd have new losses to declare.

    Glad that, like me and other fortunate investors, you came out of the situation in good shape.
