  • Why Chevron Is At $69 A Share [View article]
    Splits don't change the fundamentals or technicals in anyway. You are right that it "might" encourage more retail investors to buy but the stock is at $75 or so now. That's hardly a big number to send away the small investors, even the ones who look at the "price" and think the stock is over-priced. (which is a rookie mistake to begin with).

    Remember, the big boys move the stock market. The funds, the billionaires etc. They don't care if a stock is at $70 or $500. If they want to buy it, they will. For the value. The actual $ price means next to nothing.

  • Why Chevron Is At $69 A Share [View article]
    What ??? You think splitting a stock will reduce the company's dividend commitment in actual $ sense ? Like doing a 2:1 split would reduce its dividend commitment to $2.14 per share ? Well yes it would reduce the dividend $ per share, but it would also increase the number of shares by 2. So we'd be back to where we are. So instead of say $10 times 4, it would be $5 times 8 = $40 !!

    (Assuming that's what you meant !!)

  • Stocks stumble to session lows [View news story]
    You might know this but no one, and I mean NO ONE, should invest until they are broke. Gotta draw a line. Investing is fun, rewarding etc but risky too. Invest a good portion of what you got but not ALL. Not the house money. Not your monthly expenses for a few months at least.

  • Stocks stumble to session lows [View news story]
    Not that I believe in technical analysis a great deal but from one of the good books I've read about technical indicators -- this is a classic bear market starting sign. Great opening but ending way lower. The opposite is true with bull markets - start low but end the day stronger. (Again, just based on a book I read on technical indicators).

  • Retirement Strategy: When In Doubt, Have Some T [View article]
    Got some $MO and $Aapl instead. $T didn't have that much of a bad day but the other two were down 10% at one point.

    Or how China is gonna hurt Altria's sales enough to warrant a 10% drop !! Altria operates in the U.S, had great earnings, announced $1B buyback, and increased dividends by 9% last week. YET, it fell 10% this morning. I couldn't believe my eyes. I eventually did, and bought more :)

  • Chevron upgraded, ConocoPhillips new top sector pick at BofA Merrilll [View news story]
    Finally an upgrade for Chevron but by now, most have run to the exit. The ones who stay will be rewarded. Add more, especially at ridiculous 6% yield levels like this morning. I'd have added more if this is not my 3rd highest position already.

  • Apple slips below $100, poised for 10-month low (updated) [View news story]
    Wow, the market action is beyond me. I am not talking about bubble and irrational stocks like Netflix or Tesla but explain to me why Altria is down nearly 10%, Apple is down 33%, and Chevron is down 50% from highs. I understand China, Crude price etc but isn't anyone investing for long term ? like 5 years even ? Wow, just Wow.

  • Retirement Strategy: When There Is Blood In The Streets, Will You Become A Vampire? [View article]
    Came to this article knowing what to expect from RS and B&H2012, and am not disappointed.

    I am not disappointed much either with the fall, in fact this is healthy and shakes out the weak hands. Truth be told, we've got more panic to some. A few months ago, people would have jumped at the chance to buy Apple at $105, $CVX at 78 and $XOM near the 4% yield. But now, the chance presents with both hands and what do we do ? We panic and sell at a loss. No, that's PERFECTLY the wrong thing for a long term investor.

    If you are in or nearing retirement, it makes little sense to cash out with losses and not focusing on the fact that you can get more income for your reinvested dividends. If you are working, more power to you. Save as much as you can and invest as much as you can when there is blood on the street. It's not over yet but start nibbling at some of the good stocks mentioned in the article and the comments here. Stay strong and good luck.
