  • Lockheed Martin: Invest For Stability, Not For Growth [View article]
    A republican Congress cutting defense spending? Not likely. They'd rather cut Social Security, Medicare, infrastructure projects, etc. But not defense.

  • 5 Low PE Stocks For The Defensive Investor - July 2015 [View article]
    I find it strange to find some of the listed stocks as being "defensive" in nature.

  • ConocoPhillips -3.3% as dividend gets scrutiny out of earnings [View news story]
    Never said anything about a pay cut. I was referring to the now all too typical outrageous compensation plans.

    Veritas1010,

    Too bad that logic does not extend to executive compensation.

    "We continue to monitor the situation as spill concerns remain in the Santa Barbara area:"

    How many is "we" above? Just how many analysts are at Valuentum? I've asked this question before in your other KMI articles and gotten no answer. Looks to me that "we" is the royal "we".

  • GE may ship $10B in work overseas as Export-Import Bank languishes [View news story]
    If I was a conspiracy theorist, I would posit that the GOP closure of the Ex-Im bank is a purposeful act designed to provide cover for the large corporations to do a massive off-shoring of jobs. But, I am not a conspiracy theorist.

  • GE may ship $10B in work overseas as Export-Import Bank languishes [View news story]
    So Jack Welch was a saint and the Democrats (rather than the misguided Tea Party conservatives) are responsible for the closure of the Ex-Im Bank?

    Have you ever studied market performance as a function of which Party was in control?

    How can the tax payers be subsidizing a bank that has been returning a profit back to the tax payers since inception? If that is a subsidy, we need more of it.

    "It's A Horrible Year For Income"

    Maybe if you are a trader instead of an income investor. It's been a great time to DRIP into some wonderful companies at great prices.

  • Qualcomm: A Step In The Right Direction [View article]
    Patents are not born in a vacuum (I should know, I have 4 issued patents), they are born as a result of trying to find a solution to a design challenge. I believe if you go back and analyze QCOM's patent portfolio, the "seeds" of the patents originated in the chip design side of the business. Breaking QCOM into a chip design company and a royalty company would be a grievous mistake, as few new patents would be created and added to the royalty company.
