  • The Pigs Get Fat And The Hogs Get Slaughtered  [View article]
    I hear what you say Brad, but it is also a question of the possibility of O's share price reverting to its mean and losing all that capital appreciation.

  • ConocoPhillips' dividend cut decision ripped in conference call  [View news story]
    "The dividend is safe", until it's cut. This act played out reasonably close to what management at KMI was saying.

    Fortunately for me I sold my COP stake (albeit at a loss) abut 5 weeks ago when I was having this "deja vu" feeling.

  • Seeking Alpha's New Look: Making It Easier For You To Be A Better Investor  [View article]
    From my perspective, the new format is a major step backwards in ease of navigation and user experience. The two line header keeps "dropping down" and obstructing the article, anytime the cursor approaches it while scrolling. Something that happens frequently when using a trackpad. The format is too wide. I refuse to zoom the browser so that it takes up 100% of the screen.

    I hope SA takes the many negative comments to heart and returns to the old format soon. Next time, rather than forcing it on everyone, why not do like some other, user friendly sites, and run the proposed new interface in parallel –for a while– and let the members decide to "click" on it and give it a try and post their feedback?

    Thanks for the article Brad. I'll hold my STAG position, though still concerned this doesn't turn into another ARCP debacle.

    It will likely increase G&A expenses as it creates a new, highly compensated, executive position.

  • Qualcomm: Growth Is Dead  [View article]
    This article was a less than satisfying, superficial analysis, designed to support the author's recommendation, while ignoring many of the positive balance sheet items and recent announcements.

  • Is Western Union The Best Dividend-Paying Company In The S&P 500?  [View article]
    When I was a teenager, I worked for WU, delivering telegrams on a bicycle all over the city. Telegrams and wire transfers were their main revenue sources then. Telegrams have gone the way of the Fuller brush man and if you do electronic banking, wire transfers will be something only the lower income class will use.
