  • Microsoft Investors Should Be Jumping With Joy Over The $10.75 Billion Debt Raise [View article]
    You've been talking all along about stock buyback. Do you think the company will increase dividend pay and even a possible one-time bonus pay of $2-4/per share? I still remember MSFT paid a $3 per share special dividend quite some years ago. Thank you for the information.

    Dear Gabyvercr: Not long ago, there was a lot of discussion/recommendation of Devon Energy (DVN) which is a major player of shale oil production in US. Is this stock still worthy of garnishing public interest? It'll be in my opinion a potential take-over candidate for any large cap oil companies who want to take this golden opportunity to get a lion's share of local oil holding and production.
    My other question is, why US does not buy cheap oil now to boost up its oil reserves? Why not stock up shale oil from small oil companies here to help them survive at this moment? US Energy Department? Anyone?
    Zolimox's "I'm Gona Wait....." for those still wait for a good time is a ten year long wait. For those who don't wait to buy XOM like me have seen double digit returns from its stock price increases and decent continuous yearly dividend pay out at minimum financial risk.

    If this scenario is unfolding, shall we see a lot of consolidation, buyout, merger of smaller company activities? Hold on to small production companies and wait for buyout offers?

  • Paying Under 2 Times EBITDA For An Industry Leader [View article]
    "........being stuck with P&G stock, which is not going anywhere for a very long time......." Wait a minute! Feb/2012, P&G @ $67. May/2014, P&G @ $81. Nov/2014, P&G @ $89. From 2012 to 2014 which is not a very long time, P&G has increased $22 plus 3% quarterly dividend income. That's a "small" increase of almost 33% in 2 years short time. Ten year is a very long time! I bought P&G @ $55 in 2004. So far, I have gained $34 which is an increase of 62% plus dividend income. Well, I'll keep this low risk stock with steady solid income for years to come. KO is not going anywhere. WB should trade in KO shares for OJ Minute Maid. Thank you for this meaningful article.

  • Update: Still Steering Clear Of Home Depot [View article]
    Own both HD and LOW, neither is a competitor in your portfolio. Housing market still goes strong while interest rate is still low. Unemployment rate is dropping. It seems it can't go wrong at this moment to own both stocks. I do. Long both.

  • Intel: Another Fire Drill By Bernstein This Time [View article]
    Thank you Russ. Great article.
    For years, I have been puzzling about analysts' Whisper Numbers of earnings of companies. Does it work the same way as what User 337 said - to sway the market in their favor?

  • Probing Further Into JPMorgan: Strong Results Dampened By Federal Investigation [View article]
    One way or the other, JPM is involved in high penalty litigation. When will this bank stop paying heavy fines? There are vivid examples of poorly run companies start all from the beginning and grow significantly in values once they changed their CEO (Home Depot and Microsoft etc.). As investor, I very much like to see a company restructure of this company.

  • Home Depot Should Hit Par Soon, But I'm Not Buying Any More [View article]
    Gary, you were the lucky guy who didn't take Nardelli's offer. Fortunately fhe later stepped down and bailed with a golden parachute. I sold some at that price in 2010. And then I sold another batch at $63 early 2013. Luckily I still keep a large portion and watch it grow steadily. I'll buy at a dip again and enjoy a decent dividend at close to 2%. My opinion here is do not hesitate to buy more. Long HD. Thank you for the informative article.

  • Intel Jumped The Shark, Time To Sell [View article]
    Results are impressive. You recommend a sell. Results are not impressive. What do you recommend, a buy? Winter is here. Bears go hibernation. Many like me hold Intel stocks for income as it pays decent dividend. Well sell Intel and put the money in the bank. Forget the market since it's a roller-coaster now. Right? Thank you for your contribution.

  • Devon Energy: Seasonal Trends Indicate Significant Upside From Here [View article]
    Cars are mostly driven by gas(oil). Electricity generators use gas(oil) to recharge electric cars. GM sells record cars in China. Ford has record sales in America. In short, I personally think that demand of gas(oil) would keep climbing globally. (So is world temperature.) According to demand and supply equation, if demands of gasoline keep going up, how is it possible that gas(oil) price keeps falling(down to $50bl)? Sorry, I just can't comprehend.
    Brent, thank you for your article which comes timely that help me decide the buy/hold/sell of DVN. Now, I'll double down on this company instead of considering unloading it due to continue price decline.
