  • McDonald's Needs To Step Out Of Its Golden Arch And Open Up New Sales Channels [View article]
    That seems a sensible location for a MCD shop; both low-cost products, shoppers wanting a quick snack would be a good target population. (Costco has loss-leader refreshments to keep customers from leaving and possibly not returning.)

  • Changing My Opinion On InterActiveCorp From Bearish To Bullish [View article]
    Still higher priced then when I started looking at IACI; not sure that I am ready to jump in. If I had more free cash, perhaps. . . .

  • McDonald's Needs To Step Out Of Its Golden Arch And Open Up New Sales Channels [View article]
    I see little role for McDonald’s delivery—sure, suburban moms bring MickeyD’s to their kids at school, but anyone ordering out is not looking for the bargain brand that MCD has always represented. More success in grocery products (to my chagrin; it may be time for me to sell a stock when I no longer really believe in the product?), but it does present an issue with franchise income.
    I would rather see them capitalize on their strength of fast, inexpensive food in convenient locations, ensuring cleanliness (varies widely in my limited experience), and renewed focus on quality and service.

  • Free Bus Ride With New Flyer Dividends [View article]
    Interesting stock; very little information in the Fidelity generated reports (because it is on pink sheets, I think). Will keep watching.

    Isn’t that a little bit of an “apples-to-oranges” comparison, being 2 different industries?

  • A Dividend Champion At A Discount: Emerson Electric Co. [View article]
    Thanks; I thought I had some Irish-domiciled company(ies?) and did not remember any withholding; thought maybe it was one of those that do not pay a dividend, but this is likely the answer. Most of my stocks do pay a dividend.

  • Emerson: Where's The Bottom? [View article]
    Over decades, stock market has always gone up (of course, “past performance is no indication. . . .”), but individual timelines/goals vary. Personally, channelling Warren Buffett’s “be greedy when other’s are fearful” and preferred holding period of “forever”, the short answer is yes. I don’t pay much attention to the market as a whole, other than realizing that when it is down or up there will likely be more candidates for buying or selling.

    We are thinking alike; similar cost basis.

  • Emerson: Where's The Bottom? [View article]
    I was surprised to see EMR so low when I looked recently; was considering adding to bring my costs down, but may wait a bit, also. Thanks for the analysis—explains where we are and I agree that the company has been well-managed for a long time (this was one of my father’s picks some decades ago).

    Never said I had a crystal ball—haven’t left yet. . . .!

    I would have agreed more with “the press” rather than “the liberal press”—the point I can agree with is an overemphasis on PR.

    Sounds like the justification for Mr. Costelo’s departure; we will see what happens now.

    Lucas, that success would seem to make bringing it into the conversation relevant as a successful user of Weibo and an example of what some might find effective on Twitter, hence increasing TWTR’s value.

    Sound like my instinct to leave—or decrease position—was right.
