  • 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!

  • CVS to pull tobacco products [View news story]
    I hope this place goes right out of business. I have shopped there on occasion but I will be certain to never set foot inside another cvs.
    I am not a smoker myself, but I respect adults ability to choose their own path in life.
    If the left is hell bent on legalizing POT I fail to see the logic is banning tobacco.

  • CVS to pull tobacco products [View news story]
    No one is currently politically correct. Walking thru life stoned will most certainly
    have a more profound effect on your life, and that of the people forced to take care
    of your worthless self in the long run.
    Have you ever seen a productive stoner?

  • Lorillard: Doing Everything Right But Still Facing Troubles [View article]
    When are we going to wake up with all this FDA nonsense? Two states have already
    legalized Pot and every time we turn around they tell us 70% of the population want it
    To be sold. Who they ask, I really don't know.
    My point is, if the FDA really cared why would they believe it is a good idea to turn the US
    into a nation of Stoners? Is somehow smoking Pot not smoking?
    We can't really be this stupid.

  • Can You Retire On Less Than $1 Million? [View article]
    Anyone relying on an increase in the minimum wage to boost their salary certainly isn't
    on the right track. I don't believe I ever earned the minimum wage in my entire lifetime.
    Even when I washed cars at a local car dealer after class while in High School I did my
    best and earned a fair wage.
    No union man earns the minimum wage, and if your performance doesn't warrant more
    then the minimum you had better develop more skills.
    He'll you could junk cars and make more then minimum wage

  • Can You Retire On Less Than $1 Million? [View article]
    How nice that you have enjoyed your life. I agree entirely with your position. In America a man can accomplish anything he puts his mind to. It's not easy and there may be many setbacks, but if you are determined and have a positive mental attitude you will accomplish your goals.
    It is also important that you leave something to your heirs to represent your life's work. There were many days that I questioned what on earth was going on with many of the jobs I have had in my career. In the end, even the worst jobs added to my determination to become financially independent.

  • Can You Retire On Less Than $1 Million? [View article]
    I believe each generation has a responsibility to those that follow. Many years ago when my Dad was telling me that he put a roof over my head I realized that my debt was not to him (since he had far more then I did) but to my children and grandchildren. My Dad worked far harder then I had to, and it was my job to insure that my children had an easier life then I did.
    I have had a wonderful life, accomplished everything I could ever have wanted and now have the responsibility to leave as nice a life as possible for my heirs.
