  • iRobot Corp.: Competitive Pressures And Recent China Channel Checks Reinforce Downside Risk [View article]
    I have a regular Dyson vacuum and it doesn't suck and I mean that literally. I don't know what they have in their demonstrator models but the vacuum sent doesn't have it. The advertisement for their plant and production line in a color brochure of eight pages, while the instructions for the vacuum was a fold out with cartoon characters. Got my Hoover back that I had loaned to a friend.
    Don't trust the company that can be such scam artists.

  • Wal-Mart mulls over impact of matching online prices [View news story]
    I need now to make of list of other stores to go to for items that Wally World no longer stocks. And what is with the shelving? I'm 5' 7" and have to climb shelves to get to products that are in the back of a 4 foot deep shelf. Local Walmart's inventory has been slipping for the last 3 years. Wish they would move a Target closer to our area.

  • My Roth Conversion Odyssey (Part 1) [View article]

    Recently read an article that states residents of New Hampshire and Tennessee (and Texas?) pay state taxes on dividends and capital gains. Really?? It seems to be a yearly claim according to the article.

  • My Roth Conversion Odyssey (Part 1) [View article]
    David Fish:

    Yes, will pay taxes outside of IRA. The cash in the IRA is for more DGI stock(s); and will be looking at another DGI stock to transfer in January, the best value whether presently holding or purchased. Sound like it will work? Trying to use the CCC Champion list as my priority choices.

    Thank You for replying.

  • What Likely Happened To Dividend Growth Retirees In The Recession: Another Point Of View [View article]
    David C.:

    May you have lots of treats - and very few tricks? Any way, may it be a happy, relaxing retirement. No worries, be happy.

    Could you remind me please of an article that explains the value of a stock as compared to the yield? I know I read one by one of the brilliant DGI contributors but can't find it; must be the cold medication (uh huh, sure).

    As for holding onto a stock after a cut dividend and selling at a more lucrative price, didn't happen with me and CLF. Bought below 40, saw it go up some then the dividend cut was announced, sold before 30 (OUCH); the stock is now at 9.70 (which is a way bigger OUCH). I pay attention more, and read more of your fine articles. Too bad I had to get slapped to get the message.

    Thank You for your fine article and good hearing from you.

  • My Roth Conversion Odyssey (Part 1) [View article]

    Have you tried for marble chips on-line at a Home Depot site; sometimes, what isn't at the local store is at their on-line site, and the last I checked the shipping is free. (Bought a mailbox through the Home Depot site, free shipping to my door.)

    I had a Fidelity 401k through my place of work, and after my 'position was discontinued' with the company transferred the proceeds to a Fidelity IRA account. Then through reading all the DGI folks most excellent articles began a DGI portfolio; last year I had purchased HCN at $54 with the downturn of the Reits, I called Fidelity and setup a Roth with a transfer of HCN and the kind gentleman from Fidelity helped to recognize the tax situation and amount concerned in the transfer. The stock is happily in my ROTH with dividends into cash and a over 20% increase in value.

    Thank You for your article, will be looking forward to the next. The comments from everyone are also a learning experience in themselves.

  • The Dividend Growth Investing Mindset [View instapost]

    Thank You for the article and all the thoughts. I must also remind myself about 'patience'.
    Currently have a stock that's dividend seems to be at a standstill for the last 6 quarters, and am considering selling to purchase a reliable CCC stock that is approaching 4%. Do you hold on to companies that don't advance their dividend but in past years showed good dividend advancement?
    Again thank you for the article.

  • Occidental Petroleum - Divestment And Investment Play [View article]
    OXY finally lifted the shut-out on the employee contract for it's Interspec, Petrolia, PA plant after 3 months. No negotiating - just get out, it's a shut out - and when they were allowed to return, OXY took back most concessions of previous contract(s). Oh yeah, and the medical insurance is canned, so if your little girl breaks her leg, oh well, deal with it. Niiiiiiice company to work for but damn the stockholders are in fine shape, and that's all that matters, right? right?
    A lot of retirement - 25 gone and estimated 20 to 30 of experienced people waiting to bail.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]

    While you are waiting, you might want to go to the top of the page and search articles, blogs, etc on David Van Knapp, David Fish, David Crosetti, Robert Schwartz, Mike Nadel, and Chowder. The articles are very interesting, but the comment stream is as interesting and informative, if not more so.
    Also, one of the recent articles provides a reading list that is excellent; starting with 'The Single Best Investment' by Lowell Miller.
    Best of Luck in all your investment endeavors.

  • Hershey moves into spreads [View news story]
    I wish that Hershey would produce candy kisses without wrappers for the holiday season like Reeses's did for their mini peanut butter cups; the home bakers would realllly be happy. It takes approximately 1 hour to unwrap enough kisses for 12 dozen cookies. :-)

  • Linn Effectively Admits To Misleading Investors And Announces Key Accounting Changes [View article]
    Hold LNCO for the monthly dividend - sweet! If they hold/increase dividend that is a good indication of the company for me (but still keep track of other company issues ie. reason I read this article - the 'retained' comments were enlightening, would have liked to have read the 'deleted' comments). Fight nice children.
