  • Ive named Apple's Chief Design Officer; others taking over managerial work [View news story]
    Ah ... from the article ... "Among those other tasks, Ive says, is a focus on the design of Apple’s retail stores and new campus [including furnishings]."

    There you go, Ive gets to move into his sweet spot of interest!

    I wonder if this puts him on the board as an "officer"?!

    However, if boredom is the reason, handing over day to day management seems to open the gate to even more boredom!

  • Tracking Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Portfolio - Q1 2015 Update [View article]
    Too small a window look at the 2yr window, Brk.b is almost an inversion of S&P500, but they trend in the long term the same. I'd say May and June will be buying opportunities then another prolonged upward tick, see the averages.

  • Apple Stock: Affirming My $140 Target By The End Of May [View article]
    Wow Benjamin, just wow! From time to time commenters say pretty much exactly what you say, they get several comments negating what they said, many to the tune of 30+ likes, but the OP never makes any counter points.

    Please Benjamin, break the mold of the past and post a salient counter-argument!

    I'm at 40%, I've sold off, and bought back in twice. Haven't found anything better that I understand!

  • Dividend Contenders: April 2015 Picks [View instapost]
    I use a similar screen but instead of your EPS screens I use PEG of under 2 and I try to wait until the stock is 10% or more under 52 week high "buy great stock cheap price".

    Recent purchases CAT and IBM several buys of each since around 11/2014. I'm still holding INTC although I sort of loosely hold to a sell a dividend champion if it decreases the dividend.

  • Why Is It So Difficult To Keep Investing Simple? [View article]
    @pktsap, am I missing something? you know the DGI stocks still have the capacity to grow, so a DGI investor is not only receiving monthly income via dividends, but also capital appreciation via stock growth. It's only April still 8+ months to go to make 6%+

    @aexcorp, you wrote, "Scottrade charges $7 per trade. To beat the 0.10% fee you get on some of the ETFs I've listed, you'd have to buy each time for more than $7,000 of a given stock..."

    I would dare to say that many of RS's followers like myself are doing exactly that buying (rebalancing or reallocating) each time more than $7,000 of a given stock. Many are retired or semi-retired and portfolios are in excess of $140,000 (20 stocks @ $7,000 or 4-6% of the portfolio per stock), so cost of trades are not an issue.

    DGI is simple, reproducible and I just don't see any disadvantage over an ETF at the numbers I'm working with; and I do have an ETF, two actually, in my 403B that I can't self manage – S&P and Dividend Growth.

    @Income Yield, well aren't there several rules of thumb that are quite simple?

    Say, below 52-week high, or below 60% payout. One can still have the simple approach that RS espouses and still have an entry point based on x, y and z to determine relative cheapness and or advantage. For instance, isn't the fact that a company has increased its dividends for 26 years akin to an advantage?

    Hey Humble Eagles, you know what I've found is that the correction after a big crash does seem to occur rather quickly for the Aristocrats. I've seen at least four "crashes" since 1996, the worst recovery for me was the first one, I panicked! took two years but staying the course, given a good foundational portfolio, does seem to always produce results over time.

    Totally agree, "Getting out before big selloffs is brilliant. The problem is that few, if any, can do this consistently."

    Great explanation, combine your thoughts re 3rd month with the timing of the P85D and any perceived downtrend could very well be customers holding out for the P85D. Indeed Silicon Valley end of March seems to be just that, nothing but P85Ds.
