    Why would I buy $T? I just cut my bill from $190 to $124... and they gave me a $100 check for poor service. I imagine this happens a lot.

    • financeminister: I was reading up on recent articles on whether $T would be a good long term div stock.After bargaining for price cut, I guess I'm not sold.

                        • pocohonta: Last year when AAPL was trending from 700 down to 450, there were lots of good news and market up days, yet it went down. It's manipulated.

                                $CVS $WAG seem to be taking a pause after their recent run ups. Wondering if this is a good time to add to positions to gain from Obamacare

                                    feel vindicated buying $CVS a while back inspite of <2% yield. As a DGI with 30+ years to retire, today's 22% increase in div confirms goals

                                                        It's because of stocks like $DLR that I need to diversify into 80% bluechip dividend growers and 20% midcap/small cap dividend growers.
