  • Prospect Capital: What Comes Next? Part 1 [View article]
    This is an interesting idea. I think there is the potential for more bad news ahead and lower prices to be sure. Someone wanting a long position could hedge, exit at a lower price while remaining long.

  • I Just Can't Sell Starbucks, Even With A 9% Drop Year-To-Date [View article]
    I think there's a certain element of growing faster than you can be eaten going on here. Everyone, is gunning for the coffee segment. Mondelez, McDonald's, Taco Bell and the in home brewers. The question is, will overseas growth, tea growth, continue at the same pace. I haven't looked at the numbers myself.

  • 3% Yield Is Right On Target For Dividend Investors [View article]
    I'll take that bet. How much do you want to bet that you won't see TGT yield 6% inside of a year.

    Still the question remains, why BP with a low yield vs another company in the same area of business with a higher yield today?

  • AT&T Gets Very Direct [View article]
    I'm not sure this acquisition provides a lot of value. Comcast aquired content, it already owns the pipes. At&t should look to acquire the content rather than just more versions of pipes.

  • Do Dividends Lower Stock Prices? [View article]
    I'm not sure where the puzzle is.

    Show me a list of stocks that increases their share price for 25 or more years consecutively from which to pick that does not pay dividends.

    If you know a company that commits to increasing their share price the same way some companies commit to raising their dividends, I'll gladly purchase them at appropriate valuation.

    To be honest, I'm a new investor and haven't learned about the list of companies that do this, but I'm eager to learn about the ones that do.

  • Do Dividends Lower Stock Prices? [View article]
    Hmm,

    Surely there would be successful companies that manage to grow their price for decades and decades in the same way successful dividend companies have successful dividend growth rates. I'm not entirely familiar with those companies. Who are they?

  • 2 Dividend Kings Extending Their Dividend Growth Streaks In April [View article]
    A single 3% yield, perhaps not. But a 3% a 7% and a 5% along with a few others can certainly get a portfolio safely up to 4%.

  • The Kinder Morgan Conundrums - Part II [View article]
    I came to the same conclusion myself. Picked up more KMR today. The question is how much KMR do I need to buy so that I at least pick up a share every quarter? I haven't quite done the math yet. Also, I don't have a big enough portfolio to buy both KMI and KMR without becoming overweight essentially one company. Still, a very good article.
