  • The Trouble With Coke [View article]
    First of all as a three decade long holder of KO let me be the first to say I am not disappointed in the least. I was satisfied with the shareholders meeting, I enjoy Mr Kent's enthusiastic vision and recognize it is not easy to constantly have to surpass the accomplishments of previous years.
    My only concern is that I do not own more shares, but I will address that issue in 2015.

  • They Say The End Is Near: It's 2004 All Over Again For Coca-Cola [View article]
    I pay little attention to what the "experts" say, you know the folks that can tell everyone else how to manage a business after reading about it from a book. I look at products I use everyday, review the business plan, look at the debt, the dividend
    And make my own determination.
    Once one of these "experts" make a prediction they then do everything in their power to prove themselves correct less the investing public realize how little these people really know about running a business.
    Imagine having a great year with record profits, then criticized when the following years increase is just short of your previous year.
    I have held KO for 4 decades and I will pass it to my heirs to enjoy the dividends and growth for decades to come.
    You see I have run businesses, not read how to do it from a book.

  • Why Is No One Excited About Lorillard? [View article]
    I for one am quite excited about the deal. It was the talk of the industry for the first quarter of 2014. Since that time the media has bowed to liberal pressure regarding tobacco usage. While I respect people's dislike of the industry, everyone knows the risks and I also respect people's freedom of choice.
    The tobacco industry has been a solid performer in my portfolio both with dividends and increased value especially in this era of 1% returns from my bankers.
    Both LO and RAI are solid performers which offer excellent value for their investors.
    MO is my overall favorite but I recommend them all. I do not hold a position with PM due to its exposure to questionable government practices around the world.
    Why aren't more investors pushing LO's price up? Perhaps they aren't as smart as we are.

  • Why I'm Considering Selling My Core Position In Coca-Cola [View article]
    So you sell your KO pay Capitol gains then reinvest the proceeds and attempt to pick another winner.
    How are the other 49 positions doing?
    I hope you have another winner you can write about.
    Many people are concerned with the quick short term profit, a difficult way to build
    lasting wealth.

  • Altria Group Inc: Prepare For The Fall [View article]
    Wow does that mean that the yield on a dividend stock like Altria declines as the price goes up?
    Who would of imagined that?
    I enjoyed the facts presented in the article regarding the possible decline in high yield stocks should interest rates rise.
    Followed by the conclusion that there is no concrete evidence to suggest this will happen to Altria.
    I am going to go out on a limb here with two statements, if you will bare with me.
    1. If Altria's share price declines, it's dividend yield will rise.
    2. If pot is legalized by the current generations mindset, there will be no ceiling for the tobacco industry when they are asked to take over production to insure accurate tax revenue.

  • Note To Warren Buffett: Dump Coke, Pay Your Taxes, And Get On The Right Side Of History [View article]
    I have owned KO for nearly 4 Decades and I am quite pleased with the results. It will remain in my family's portfolio for generations to come. It is difficult to meet the expectations yearly of "Experts" who have never managed anything more then a computer screen. I believe KO has a strong management team and a good plan for moving forward even in our current era of "social consciousness"
    By the way next time you buy gas, or a new car, or a home, see what you can buy with that "social consciousness"

    Good I'm glad you trimmed your position since I am adding to mine. You simply made more shares available.

  • Note To Warren Buffett: Dump Coke, Pay Your Taxes, And Get On The Right Side Of History [View article]
    Amazing, I have owned KO for 35 years now and couldn't be happier with the results. You asked where can it go? Well it split 2/1 a couple of years ago and now
    Is back up in the $41 range. This is up nearly $3 from the last stockholders meeting.
    KO has a strong management team, a great product, and is determined to continue to provide great value for it's shareholders.
    As an investor I am only interested in two things, dividends, and growth. I only deal in Blue Chip Stocks with good management, and a history of solid dividend performance. I will leave the social comintary to others.

  • Is Coca-Cola Still A Tasty Investment After Poor Q3 Results? [View article]
    I am a long term KO holder who has had my initial investment returned to me via dividends more times then I care to calculate. It remains a core stock in my portfolio that I will leave to my heirs.
    KO has a strong management team with a solid plan moving forward, I would encourage anyone to buy KO on this dip.

  • Coca-Cola's Investment In Africa Impacts Its Stock [View article]
    And your point is?
    Does it not make sense for a company such as Coke to invest in emerging markets?
    Is it not a core principle to grab all the market share you can in new market places?
    And just about every major investment a company makes can have an impact on it's stock.

  • Lorillard's 2014 Dividend Increase [View article]
    I am long on LO, it carries little debt, has a relatively low share count, and offers a
    very nice dividend. It can be volatile with various media articles attempting to drive
    the marketplace in one direction or another. The author nicely addressed the concerns about menthol in his article. LO is a solid long term performer for your

  • 5 Reasons Coca-Cola Remains A Great Buy For Long-Term Investors [View article]
    It can be difficult for investors to find quality stocks for their Portfolio. Articles are
    offered attempting to motivate investors in one direction or another, often in completely different directions on the same stock at the same time. How does one
    choose a quality stock?
    I look for quality Blue Chip Companies with a strong dividend, and solid management. KO has been a core stock in my portfolio for 35 years, several splits,
    and it has repaid my initial investment countless times.
    I am long (lifetime + future generations) on KO. I highly recommend this stock for
    anyone interested in building wealth.

  • Why I Said Goodbye To Lorillard, Inc. [View article]
    Yeah, yeah we have heard this sorry tune for what 2 years now?
    If you sold your position that explains your article, you want to drive the price down so
    you can buy it back.
    Here are three reasons why your article is nonsense.
    1. If menthol was banned it would mainly affect a certain "group" of people who would
    never stand for it. These are the same folks that don't read loan agreements, then get to
    suit lenders. If menthol was banned there wouldn't be enough lawyers for all the suits!
    2. US cannot afford to lose taxes collected from LO.
    3. Government, both State & Federal, is giddy with the prospect of taxing Pot. They are already discussing bonds. Today they approved bank accounts & credit card use in Pot
    shops. They are constantly telling us the Pot popularity in the "Polls" they feed the public.
    And you are calling for the demise of LO. I think your Crystal Ball is defective!
