  • U.S. Steel Is One Of The Few Bargains Left In This Market [View article]
    This area - steel demand is falling, foreign imports are being dumped in the US, there legacy of retirement money they owe will never be paid at a low or high price of steel. Seven year run on the markets, I would be very afraid to buy this stock. Five to ten dollars a share before the year is over, I might.

  • Should I Own REITs In A Retirement Account? [View article]
    My income from IRA or regular accounts makes me pay a higher percentage of taxes on my social security. Like SS pays 100 and 85 taxable. Does this change at a older age? Will see. Roth no problem.

  • Beef Versus Pork: A Big Divergence [View article]
    The import of Australia beef and the cheap cost of corn for feed. Holding the beef for one to two months at the feed lots makes sense to me. Than seeing the old problem I loaded up on 4.99 steaks, one year later there at 11.99 per pound. So there are some great buys around - may be great sells around. Not buying steaks as still have to many, and my children are taking them also. Hormel might be a buy, thank you for the article.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Help For The Economy From Housing? [View article]
    Unemployed here 3%, next county 3.8% Low income, own home - free heat, food, cell phone, free home repairs - why rent. This means great ecomony - retired staying home, oil refiners on strike what happens to all the crude oil? Iron ore prices and other metals crashing - no lay offs. Coal volume down - hear of some cut backs. Last weeks paper average coal mine wage here 85k. Conclusion - if you can live good for free and the others are willing to give you about half there money. This economy is booming.

  • KKR: Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover, This 7% Yielder Is A Great Value For Long-Term Income Investors [View article]
    Don't pretend to understand K1, that's for my tax person to handle, love this stock, but if it runs like a oil company - I bought enough, my hope is for the stock price to take a dump to around twenty and I'll buy again!

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time For 'Risk On'? [View article]
    Thank you, the dock workers walk out - in your area of life have any effect. The lay offs in the oil field and the strike of the steel workers? The trains are moving a lot of tractor trailers, trailers. The rail roads seem very busy as I'm doing nothing still. South east NM - I couldn't believe the oil work, very busy and working very hard, looks like they could supply the whole U.S. Wish I could add something important - nothing comes to mind. Love my oil well dividends - now. Dream they can keep it up for fifteen years?

  • U.S. rig count down 87 units in 10th straight week of losses [View news story]
    Haven't worked for four years as a mechanic, never dream of competing with T Boom Pickens, my savings are down a little on oil, the dividends are a dream come true. I now travel the U.S. and Canada - off and on all year. Boring Mik945, not as successful as Pickens, are you kidding - I have enough money now from reading all these opinions! Making my buy and sells,What else is there to do? One more you should drive through south east New Mexico, the oil production looks great and the the drills are drilling. Up or down there seems to be enough oil here to pick up the whole U.S.
