  • Visa Garners A Very Attractive Economic Castle Rating [View article]
    I joke around with my investing buddy....

    1) "Visa only goes up"
    2) Because of #1, "Visa is always a BUY, ALWAYS"

    Semi-joking, but not really.

    Long and DRIPping V since the IPO with multiple adds along the way.

    Unfortunately, I didn't get into MA until $15 (pre-split basis), but similar logic holds there.

  • Energy rally fails as crude dips below $60 [View news story]
    "In the last 6 months, USO (and crude oil) is down 40%
    XOM is down only 10%

    See the problem?"

    Not at all. Oil majors IMO are the only way to play oil long-term. Oil is volatile and it's good to have situations where they can benefit on the refining end, and they pay a solid divvy.

    Fool cells?

    Here's a hint. Electricity is more ubiquitous than hydrogen.

    EPD is also good one and has pulled back today to the 35-range. not a bad level here IMO.

    PSX is also a good at these levels IMO

  • Verizon seeing margin pressure, higher disconnects [View news story]
    Once there is enough wifi deployed, you're going to see more pressure on VZ and T in terms of cell data. I question the longevity of their business model quite frankly

    "ATT too... no different"

    I've had better experience with AT&T personally.... there are options to take your AT&T phone if you don't like AT&T service. Your VZ phone is a paperweight without VZ service

    because lots of people were trying to predict a "cut" from SDRL and instead got a "suspension"

  • Berkshire ups GM stake, exits Deere, buys into Express Scripts [View news story]
    If the underlying business is questionable, that will eventually trickle to the dividend.

    It's like being a lobster in the slowly boiling pot of water. Imagine how those dividend investors in EK and the old GM felt

  • Apple Is A Steal Even At $700 [View article]
    "AAPL has now split 7 for 1. It still has been included in the Dow 30."

    Give it time. They may be next in line once it is time to change up the DJIA again. KO and IBM may be next on the chopping on the block. V NKE and GS were just added last year to replace other stocks

  • Is Seadrill Stock Worth Considering Right Now? [View article]
    My original comment got 11 likes, yours, 6 likes. I'll let the SA community decide whether management credibility is an important part of investing in a company.

    "ChopChop0 is now Mr. HIND-SIGHT and an oil sector expert now....

    Top Commodity Hedge Funds didn't see the $60 oil coming. But you did?

    You sir are delusional and talking out of your rear..."

    Ever check my comments a few months ago? Yeah I didn't think so. you must be a bitter SDRL bagholder. My condolences. At least with management that is either 1) INCOMPETENT or 2) DECEITFUL, you need to be honest with yourself and accept the "uninvestability" of this stock.

    For reference:

    You sir are the one talking out of your rear. I saw this coming from a mile away. Did you?

  • Berkshire ups GM stake, exits Deere, buys into Express Scripts [View news story]
    "On KO, (1) he is sitting on a huge unrealized gain in the stock, which will decline by 35% once he sells due to corporate taxes; so, (2) until BRK needs the cash (and it doesn't) and as long as he doesn't think the stock will decline materially and permanently (and I'm I bet he's doesn't bc KO's returns on tangible capital remain high) shouldn't BRK continue to defer the tax hit as long as possible? I think so."

    He needs to find a PG deal like duracell from KO and retire KO shares that way. I think avoiding the soft drink business is key, as this is the biggest liability to KO. Perhaps the new milk business could be spun off to berkshire :)

    Good read: http://seekingalpha.co...

  • Why Did Buffett Invest In IBM, And Should You Follow? [View article]
    I'm happy with the small profit I made on IBM when I was able to get out a year ago at $190+ Haven't looked back.

  • Why I Purchased Exxon Mobil And Chevron This Week [View article]
    oil is still the most versatile, and densest energy sources around. Next time you have to deal with a natural disaster, try powering your generator off of wind or solar.

    Don't get me wrong... I am long TSLA and believe in green energy, but oil has been and will always be a necessary evil. I hope ignorant greenies like you drive the oil majors lower. I can't wait to buy more

    Good op ed for you to read: http://bit.ly/1w0Q0HL
