  • 10 Dividend Stalwarts Outperforming The S&P 500 Since 2006 [View article]
    Chuck - thanks for a nice analysis. As an aside, tobacco companies MO, LO, and PM could be a nice addition to the proposed portfolio.

  • 3 Reasons We Might Break 1100 On The S&P 500 Index [View article]
    If you cannot see that a banking or credit crisis (that will start in Europe) is looming, perhaps you should move on with your life and stop trashing SA posts. Try fly fishing for a change or start being constructive in your comments!!

  • 3 Reasons Why The S&P 500 Index Will Move Higher [View article]
    Agree. Medium and long term look very challenging indeed. And I do not see how Greece can avoid default. Did you notice how France and Germany are slowing moving to plan B, where they set aside funds to shore up their banks when Greece defaults.

    Hello Max PSA - thank you for your comment.

    The environment of the last couple of months is very reminiscent of the 2008 crisis when Lehman went bust with heightened volatility.

    When Lehman went bust, it created buying opportunities of a lifetime at incredible prices.

    For example, KO traded at $33, MO at $11, PG at $37 etc. Was anything wrong with KO? Nothing I can think of. Asset prices were perfectly correlated and liquidations by money managers occurred en masse.

    A collapse of the Euro triggered by debt default of Greece, Italy, Spain etc could bring the same valuations back (if you disagree with this premise or think that no Euro country will default that's another question).

    I do not know how many stocks you bought at fire discount prices in 2009. I am just offering a strategy so that if extremely low price show up again investors are ready.

    Hello PMI - your comments are very welcome.

    My buy limits not being filled would actually be good news. It means we would avoid financial Armageddon.

    I was just asking you whether you pulled the trigger on PM now that it yields 4%.

    Does it yield higher than 4% now?

    Hello PMI - thank you for your comment.

    MO sold off to $23 and change this August. That would have been a good entry point.

    As for PM, it will yield 4% when the stock reaches $64. I believe $64 is definitely in the cards.

    Hello Norman - thank you for your comment. You make a good point.

    I would start with 1/2 a position at 4%, and perhaps double down at 5 or 6%. ABT at $47 is definitely in the cards, CVX at $78 would be nice.

    Hello Remigraffanti - thank you for your comment.

    The article merely suggests readers to place silly buy limit orders in case something dramatic occurs - in the present case Europe imploding or another banking crisis are the obvious candidates.

    If you do not believe that stocks prices can be stretched that much, just take a look at the prices these companies traded at 3 years ago on March 9, 2008.

  • Time to Buy Hewlett Packard? A Resounding YES [View article]
    I agree with you that there is absolutely no rush to get into the stock and that patient investors might get it at even lower values. That being said, I offer two catalysts for the stock to move up above and beyond valuation:
    1. Finally, the reorganization plan has been spelled out.
    2. There is a negative Apotheker premium priced into the stock. SAP's board fired Apotheker after one year. HP's board could move in this direction as well.

    Let's wait and see.
