  • Retirement Strategy: The Politics That Could Affect Our Retirement Portfolios And Income [View article]
    Don't salivate so much over the anticipated death of Justice Ginsburg so much that you forget your table manners. She seems in good health for an eighty something and her mind is definitely still sharp. The Grim Reaper stalks us all and there's no telling who's seat will be vacant next. And please don't insult our intelligence by belaboring the fact that you stated no names. Your implication is, shall we say, perfectly, clear therefore my inference, besides being unavoidable, is spot on. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

    Take it from an old timer, the market as a whole did well in 1986 for various reasons then tanked the next year. Perhaps as a 5 year old you picked up on the anxiety adults felt at that time.

  • How Obamacare Will Boost Your Portfolio [View article]
    I could probably teach the author a few things about being "a Democrat spin-doctor" but when it comes to healthcare investing to quote a comment I once made on another SA article (don't remember which one) "to hell with politics". That's because my Roth, which I started in '99, has been in a reputable heath care mutual fund and it's been a solid performer in bull and bear markets from Enron to 2008 and the recovery since then, not to mention 3 Presidents. I've supplemented this with a couple of biotech etfs since then and scarcely a day goes by without me asking myself why am I in anything else.

  • It's Payday: These REITs Yield At Least 5% And Grow Dividends By At Least 5% [View article]
    I've been participating in a game sponsored by Marketocracy since 2006. This game doesn't reinvest divis but does show capital appreciation or loss from the date of "purchase". In that time SPG has gained 144% while Kimco has lost 23%, the winner, however, is Realty Income (O) with a gain of 154%.

  • Is Enbridge Energy Partners A Good Investment? [View article]
    Short this POS. The pipeline they use is aging and the viscosity of the dirty crude being mined in the Bakken and elsewhere is bound to cause ruptures. I have seen for myself where the pipeline breaks the surface on wetland on the Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota, even a snowmobiling accident could conceivably cause a rupture.

    If the bodies were noticeably more delicate than steel bodies the customers would have indeed noticed, it should go without saying.

  • How To Play Organovo Holdings [View article]
    If you had the chance to diversify hundreds of thousands of dollars in your holdings in one companies stock wouldn't you? I sure would having no desire to end up like the dot com/Enron bag holders. Ok, poor examples, let's say I don't want to like a Tyco bag holder, which is a good company which happened to have a bad actor as its CEO in 2000. I'll bet each one of these execs still hold plenty of ONVO stock with options for more on the way.

    What I take from your comment is this company has been founded by and/or employees sharp operators who have bought a lot of potentially lucrative intellectual property dirt cheap. As for competition, bring it on!

  • How Did UBS Recommend Puerto Rico Junk For Mom And Pop Clients? [View article]
    The bottom line is not nearly enough of the Wall Street criminals who brought the economy to its knees in 2008 have gone to jail. Any suggestion that UBS operatives, those in other companies, the companies themselves and their collaborators in Puerto Rico should escape justice out of a blame the victim mentality is patently ridiculous. Of course its easy to get people to salivate over high returns that's why we have securities laws which are just as essential to a thriving, or even functional, economy as capital itself, like it or not.

  • Will CREE And Its Ilk Kill Peabody Energy? Over Time, I Think So [View article]
    You can thank the EPA if you smell nothing from a coal plant, don't suffer asthma or develop lung cancer from same. A power plant serves hundreds of thousands of people, its effects for good or ill dwarf those of a fireplace, being a large target it can be more effectively regulated than millions of fireplaces spread out across the country. Does this make sense? Please say yes so we taxpayers don't have to foot the bill for your upkeep at the funny farm.
