  • Why Dividends Are Important For Every Investor: Microsoft Case Study [View article]
    Some companies reward CEO and managers lavishly with stocks and other forms of profit sharing, and then do the stock buy-back. Rich executives, poor individual investors.

  • General Electric: The Industrial Businesses Are Now The Focus - Highlight On GE Water [View article]
    I read through your article twice trying to find the word desalination. Is GE a leader in this field? I have learned that San Diego has a seawater desalination plant. Was it built by GE? Thank you for the article. I own GE shares for years.

  • Can The Departure Of Jeff Immelt Hasten GE's Recovery? [View article]
    I'm very interested to read anything written about GE since I have a sizable shares of this company for many years. A great many of them always talked about Jack and Immelt and those comments always amuse me. Who is the Angel and who is the devil, or who is in-between, Angelic Devil? Well, to their true nature, Americans are partisans. Thank you for your contribution.

  • 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.

  • Time To Snap Up The Immense Opportunity In Exxon Mobil Corporation [View article]
    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.
