  • Wal-Mart: Value Pricing And Excellent Growth Potential [View article]
    You may want to check your comparable sales chart....unless you have a time machine that knows what they will be for the balance of 2014 and 2105. ;-)

  • McCormick: Under-The-Radar Company With Huge Upside Potential [View article]
    As to MKC's pullback potential:

    Note that the first graph is logarithmic and the second is linear; both charts include dividends

    Seems fairly valued to me....will wait for a major drop

  • StoneMor Partners: My Reason For Selling This 10% Payout MLP [View article]

    The Motley Fool link you provided is one of a series of standard "formula" accounting articles churned out by this particular TMF contributor, and it doesn't really delve into the special accounting rules for STON. It is NOT an official TMF position/report on STON.

    While one TMF paid service sold STON some time ago, TMF's Income Investor service advised folks to buy MORE STON on June 20.

    If you going to link things, don't mis-represent them.

  • StoneMor Partners: My Reason For Selling This 10% Payout MLP [View article]
    Absolutely clueless in terms of STON's deferred accounting requirements....GAAP is NOT the proper yardstick for this company...and you should know better.

  • It's Time To Exit Exxon And Chevron Stock [View article]
    "...This decline in revenue and earnings will begin to affect the dividend payout ratios and cause them to increase. This increase will eventually restrict both company's ability to further increase dividends in the future..."

    Payout ratio is hardly a big threat to dividends when it's in the 20's....and actually lower thatn it was in 2009 ( admittedly an atypical year ).

    Your analysis seems more related to short-term trading than investing.

  • Are Dividend Growth Investors Doing It All Wrong? [View article]
    " Buffett's greatest returns were made in the 1950s and 1960s, when he almost exclusively invested in cigar butt stocks - usually small cap names that were trading at depressed levels due to certain circumstances."

    You may want to do a bit more research on this. AMEX was not a small cap or a cigar butt

  • Annaly Capital: Why Isn't Anyone Talking About This? [View article]
    "A tripling of one's money is a successful investment...."

    Well, that statement depends upon time frame and investment goals. In this case, the "rule of 115" says that a person buying NLY in 1999 and holding for 14 years earned 8%....not too bad at all....unless your goal was 10%. ;-)

    ( long NLY )

  • StoneMor: With Dividend At Risk, Shares Could Fall Sharply [View article]
    Nor would I, with distorted sub-heads like this:

    "Company insiders refuse to own StoneMor..."

    And then read that insiders own 3% of the 21.3M shares or 639,000 shares. Would I like it to be higher...yes....but you said "refuse to own"

    Not so.

  • Avoid The Poor House With Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    "...Further, full retirement age for social security benefits keeps getting pushed out - it's currently 65 (if you were born after 1937) and you're penalized up to 25% if you start taking withdrawals at age 62 and rewarded 10% per year if you defer taking benefits till you're 70."

    For me, born after 1937, full retirement age is around 66...and I get 8% more, not 10% for deferral.

  • Southern Company: Naysayers Are Wrong On This Core Holding [View article]
    Better re-visit your chart numbers....especially for SO. Some don't make any sense

  • This Is Why You Should Consider The Southern Company: A Utility Stalwart [View article]
    Comparing performance based on an average of just 3 utilities seems a bit thin....why not more?

    ( long SO and DUK )
