  • The 'New' Kraft: Reinventing Itself And Paying A 4.1% Annual Dividend Yield [View article]
    maxnsl,

    Thanks for your comment. I hold both for the same reason as you.

    Regarding your concern about the philosophy of Mr. Vernon and employee ownership...he made it very clear in the CAGNY and other comments that he wants to press this ownership far down into the organization. I hope is intentions are honorable and he wants line-worker level employees to have a stake in the company. That could really work to change culture.

    waldipup,
    thanks for your comment. Good points...You are looking at the chart on SA to arrive at a PE of 50 and earnings of $0.94. I'd be cynical, too.

    However the P/E on the stock is 18.08 and EPS are $3.29 on MSN and Google Finance (links below) and $2.75 on Yahoo.

    BrodiesDay,
    Thanks for your comment.
    One never knows what the future holds...but I don't expect this stock to have superior share price movement.
    Investment suitability depends largely on our goals. For me, in retirement, a dividend in excess of 4% from a branded food company that may have some benefit of being 'recession proof' is attractive.
    Your goals may be different.
    I do understand how memory and experience plays a role in our decision making.
    Good luck to you-
    Scott

    Golferdood,
    Thanks for the comment. It is a solid strategy to add to these positions on dips, in my opinion

  • Kellogg: Poised For International Growth And Paying A 2.9% Annual Dividend Yield [View article]
    sneaker1404,
    Appreciate your comments.
    A simple solution to both drop the payout ratio and lower debt is for Kellogg to ramp up earnings! I am counting on their international initiatives to do just that.

    SteveTheHawk,
    All valid points. Thanks for your comment.
    One thing for sure...this is a different Kellogg Company than most of us grew up with!

  • Mondelez International's Share Price Decline Is A Long Term Buying Opportunity [View article]
    aminat,
    thank you for your comment.
    I don't think it is ever too late to start investing but I would caution you to start small and invest at regular intervals rather than jumping in and putting all your cash to work at once. There is simply no way to know the direction of the market...and because you are starting at age 51 you probably can't afford to get caught in a market moving down...simply because you wouldn't have as much time to recover losses as someone in their 20s or 30s would.
    I agree US stocks, particularly the large caps, are the place to start for the reasons you state. Be sure to diversify right from the start...so you now own PG and you want to buy a utility...then look toward another industry as you mitigate risk by spreading your investments across different industry categories and sectors.
    I wish you good luck.

  • How A Company Like Johnson & Johnson Can Rescue Your Retirement [View article]
    Doug,
    Good article with solid information.

    I did want to point out that you have an error in your symbol for Procter and Gamble (PG)

    as in this sentence:
    Other companies that fit this mold are Procter & Gamble (PNG), Coca-Cola (KO), Exxon (XOM), and Wal-Mart (WMT).

    Johnny Stox,
    You could be right...
    And if the purchase price includes a 20% premium as with Heinz, I hope you are!

    AcousticRootz,
    Great comment. Bottom line, especially for newer investors like youngdividend, is to do your own rigorous research and tune out the noise some of the television commentators.

    youngdividend,
    Jim Cramer says lots of stuff. If he didn't make buy or sell calls he wouldn't have a television show.

    How might your goals differ from Cramer's? Your profile states you are buying dividend paying stocks and reinvesting the dividends in hopes of retiring years down the road. On the other hand Cramer may be making a call about the next quarter or the next six months...

    Long-term, I and other posters here see MDLZ as a solid investment. It just makes sense to us that the superior product portfolio of this company will be desired in the rest of the world just like it has been in the U.S. and developed countries over the last 2 plus generations under the name of KRAFT.

    No one knows what the future holds, not even Jim Cramer. So keep an eye on this stock over the next dozen years.

    Thanks for your comment! And good luck to you. Starting young is the most important factor in having a secure financial retirement. Congratulations!
