    Iowa: buy it now and forget it for 20 years. The compounded interest over that period of time will provide you with many, many more shares if you reinvest it in T, which in turn will provide a nice steady income in retirement.

    At least GE isn't lingering in the mid 20'S anymore, but, I don't think that has anything to do with the Alstom deal. 30 is the new 25.

  • Bailing Out Of Brazil  [View article]
    And, slowly but surely, the Progressives of the U.S. are accomplishing the same constituency here. Everyone still thinks socialism is great because the government can, and should, provide everyone " free lunch." Except, when it gets to the point where there is no longer enough people willing to work and pay for those who don't, the government collapses. Does the figure of $18 trillion of debt signify government strength ? Move over Brazil, and make room at the table for US.

  • Mortgage REITs: Meat And Potatoes Or Deep Fried Bomb?  [View article]
    Brad : A few years ago I got tempted and bought AGNC, which, at the time came highly touted. Big mistake ! I said to myself, " No more mREIT's for me. " However, recently, I was tempted again, under the same guise, to buy WMC, only to see it drop precipitously. If I'm lucky, I'll make my investment money back in a year, if they keep paying the current dividend. Those " bombs " can look quite tempting but, digesting them can be excruciating. Good article !

  • ConocoPhillips wins drilling permit for project in Alaska petroleum reserve  [View news story]
    In don't imagine COP will explore until oil reaches at least $60 barrel, and stays at that level, or above, for an extended period of time. But, it's always nice to have an ace in the hole.
