  • Markets Headed For Steep Correction [View article]
    ..perhaps and perhaps not. You are all tangled up in speculation. Regardless, real investors like myself, buy and hold, (and reinvest their dividends) for decades, compounding their profits. Corrections are temporary and when they happen my dividends reinvested when the market is down, serve me well when things stabilize.

    I think your headline is an unnecessary scare tactic. Why not say: "If and when we have another correction, buy because the long term trend for the market is up."?

    Having a positive, tempered out look is far better than trying to time the market.

  • As Qualcomm Ups Its Dividend By 20%, Here's Why I Like The Stock [View article]
    My cost on this stock is just over six dollars. I am a buy and hold forever investor who reinvests dividends along the way.

    I like QCOM management and I like the way they are tunneling into many peripheral areas, any one of which could become very profitable.

    I am planning to stay put and have this stock in my portfolio at my death unless their story changes dramatically.
    Are their other, fresher opportunities? Sure, there always are but the breath and depth of QCOM is good enough for me so I'll stick with it enjoying the rising dividend and the fact that I pay no capital gains trading in and out. Compounding is a dramatic way to make money when you have a strong company and a rising dividend.

  • Pfizer: It Never Rains, It Pours [View article]
    I have held this stock for decades and am now thoroughly disgusted.
    I remember reading for years about our aging population and how these drug companies were going to rule the world.

    Well, they dropped the ball to the biotech's and the generics. They are large, management protective, lumbering giants who are unwilling to reshape themselves into the dynamic and focused enterprises they once were. They have lost their excitement and freshness and bore me as an investment.

  • Qualcomm Will Continue Its Rise [View article]
    This company will power on upward regardless of what happens in China. It's base is expanding all over the world and new product lines will insure growth for the next two decades.

    I expect strong dividend growth for the next several years. I have owned the stock for over a decade and reinvest my dividends. I have no intention of selling at all.

  • Emerging Semiconductor Leaders: Qualcomm's Top Spot Is Challenged [View article]
    Having owned, (and reinvested QCOM) for over a decade and my cost being about 6 bucks, I can assure you that this stock will be in my estate when I die and I expect to leave a bundle to my children.
    Investor buy and hold and reinvest dividends in great companies until the story changes.
    Those of you who trade in and out I thank you for helping to finance the country with the taxes you pay while I compound my wealth paying no capital gains.

    Good luck to all.

  • Southern Copper Corp: A Story Of Declining Margins [View article]
    I will bet against you! Copper use will climb with the Indian and Chinese markets expanding and increased use in the developed world.

    Copper use in electric vehicles, construction, wind turbines and grid infrastructure and modernization will increase. If anti-microbial copper ever comes into use in the medical and health care fields they will not be able to keep up with it!

    Of all the metals, copper is essential to a successful life. I'll stay put with copper for a few more decades.

  • Qualcomm: A Growth Stock For Investors [View article]
    What? You want me to buy this stock? Hey, wait a minute, I bought it well over a decade ago at $ 5.44 a share and am still holding it with all dividends being reinvested.

    I just don't need any more but thanks for the tip! I will still be here in another decade holding it and by then my dividends will have doubled or tripled and that compounding effect will be something my children will thank me for. By then perhaps one of them will actually have a damn job.

  • Why Not Consider This Undervalued And Underfollowed 8.4% Yielder? [View article]
    If I had any dough to squander I would buy this stock in the near future. In three years it should be a very different story.

  • A Look At Qualcomm's Intrinsic Value [View article]
    Excellent analysis. I hope to read more of your insightful advice. I have owned this stock for over a decade and reinvested my dividends. My original buy was at 5.44 a share and my DCA is now at 10.49. I am getting happier about the rising dividend and will stick with the stock as long as they keep goosing it. With any luck it will be in my estate when I croak and my children will have a bundle.

  • Qualcomm's Growing Dividend [View article]
    Been long for over a decade. My cost is under eleven bucks so I am happy about the stock…and I do reinvest my dividends but I want a much bigger dividend…like double and I want that compounding effect.
    I am no spring chicken at 73 so time is not on my side. Double that dividend QCOM, you have the $$$$ to do it. I need to leave my grandchildren a bundle for college.

  • Qualcomm Is A Long-Term Buy [View article]
    Yeah, my cost is under six bucks a share. I only am a buy and hold investor. I also reinvest my dividends and I wish/expect QCOM to keep raising it's dividend substantially. I have owned it long before it ever paid a dividend and am anxious to compound those dividends.

    Another decade in and I expect to have a nice bundle tucked away.
    Thinks look good and I am happy. Thanks for the article.

  • China's SOEs: Big Changes On The Way At China's Biggest Firms [View article]
    Thank you. I have been sitting on SNP (and the FXI) for well over a decade. I have done well, let's say average, with SNP but I hope that reform will really boost the stock. China is a troublesome economy and a troublesome society but all those people want what your already have and they will work to get it..

  • Qualcomm: An Industry Leader Pegged For Sustaining Dominance [View article]
    Having owned this stock and reinvested my dividends since inception I surely hope you are right. I am sitting on a healthy profit but the dividend needs to be considerabley boosted so that I can get some serious compounding in the next decade.

    For it is all about the dividend magic.

  • Is Enerplus A Good Investment? [View article]
    Having paid 40 bucks a share in 2006 I am still way underwater by 48% but I have reinvested my dividends and am coming back. I could buy a new car with what I have lost but I am hanging in for the next decade and will claw my way back.
