    Thanks for the article, as a reformed trader, sitting on profits is the hardest part. We have to keep the long term goal in mind, compounding investments in sound, growing companies.

The shift in strategy from the company is another bid to gain market share of value-oriented customers and follow the path of QSR rivals also increasing their focus on $1 menu items. [View news story]

  • Dividends' Unintended Consequences [View article]
    The thing I dislike most about mutual funds is that when there is blood in the streets they are forced to sell stocks to raise cash to meet all the redemption's. On the other side when things are rosy they are forced to buy stocks at higher and higher prices just to put all the cash flowing in to work. This is the opposite of what I am trying to accomplish, so now I run my own mutual fund that meets my goals and isn’t forced to do anything silly.

  • Goldman's Right On McDonald's: Better Opportunities Elsewhere [View article]
    Have you eaten at Wendy's lately? Since they have changed their burger, I find them a less compelling place to eat. Clearly MCD is the market leader and is much better run. I sold out my MCD position at $85 and have been waiting for a pull back to get back in.

  • Utilities To Power Up Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    Hi Chowder,

    Thanks for the great comment, opened my eyes to what diversification can really mean! I think with the coming conversion of coal power plants now is a good time to reduce exposure to coal heavy utilities.

  • Dividend Growth Investing Is Not Dead [View article]
    Hi Chowder,

    Thanks for the great advice. You, David, and Norman are great inspirations to me.

    I usually buy a quarter position when the stock is near a 52 week low. I will add on more quarter positions as the stock goes lower. I like to reduce my cost basis.

    I just have to learn to concentrate on building my income stream since I would like to retire in five years. Must resist hitting sell button...
