  • Dividends And Quality Come Together In This ETF [View article]
    QDYN has net assets of $72 million vs VIG with $24 billion.

    If QDYN is so wonderful, why hasn't it attracted more investors. It's been almost two years.

    Took a position in MCD today at 92.45. I assume management is able to take some steps to make it a worthwhile investment at this price.

  • UBS sees four big energy stocks as possible takeover targets [View news story]
    With crude prices down, we might begin to see people claim that it's cheaper to drill for oil on Wall St. than in the Eagle Ford.

    Just so they pay a huge premium, that's all I care about.

  • (Un)Happiness At McDonald's? Outlook Not So Tasty In 2014 [View article]
    Took a position in MCD today at 92.45.

    The minimum wage issue doesn't bother me, as it will affect all restaurant chains. People might decide to eat at home more rather than pay stiffer burger prices, but in the end MCD will get their share of the business. With their strong financials and depressed price, I don't expect to lose money, although it might take some time. In the meantime, there's always the divvy to look forward to.

  • Why Is EOG Resources On The Up? [View article]
    "net crude oil production having sharply risen to 220 million barrels/day last year from a mere 55,000 barrels/day "

    According to the IEA the entire world consumed 89 million barrels of oil per day in 2011.

    So either EOG is storing a lot of oil, or the author hasn't bothered to check his figures before publishing them.

  • Why A Market Correction Now Would Be The Best Scenario [View article]
    Maybe we'll have a rolling correction. Many of my energy stocks are 10-20% below their highs already.

    It's like any other project. The developer brings in equity partners after the initial work is done. The price at which the partners come in guarantees the developer a nice profit.
