  • This High-Dividend Stock Yields Over 10%, Has 20% Dividend Growth, Will Pay A Special Dividend In 2015 [View article]
    Viewing a person, a company, or such tangibles as we are here in the relatively short term of time-frame history reflects a considered myopia sense, or perspective as to the qualitative aspects, benefits, and or real/dependable rewards to an investor. Sounds good, and I'm not skeptical per-se, just want clear, and a plethora of the management history. But, that's just me!

  • Why We're Dumping Kinder Morgan Right Now [View article]
    KMI or ETP? Do I ask? With oil holding in a likely $ 50.00+/- to $ 60.00 "ish" range foreseeable time: demand/production reasoned likelihood. Again I ponder ..... "to be" KMI, or "not to be" KMI? "Yet again, is it nobler (read wiser) to suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous (non) fortune" in ETP? Yea, I know I've done dis-service to The Bard, but, this hath taken me verily to a state of conundrum. Now I ask .... to ETP or not ETP; but, run to the hills?

  • Comcast continues customer-service revamp with new forums [View news story]
    I will clarify my position on Comcast and any other providers (I've also had Direct TV) Any organization can have occasional periods of bad service, but, what I am referring to is an on going period of time that goes to management/corporate attitude (an Enron like culture) toward their customer. Most will have abhorrantly- terrible service a time or two; I am directing my statements to almost pervasively "Nazi-like" attitudes.

  • Comcast continues customer-service revamp with new forums [View news story]
    I rather doubt, speaking 1st hand, that Comcast can or will factually improve it's existing customer service. My experience within the past 30 days has shown Comcast telephone service representatives to be rude, very serly, and down right obnoxious. I for one am awaiting the AT&T/Direct TV merger at which time I will be an ex-Comcast long time unappreciated customer.

  • Retirement Strategy: Dumping Chevron To Add More Exxon Mobil For Income [View article]
    The most recent Saudi position is to "almost", if not even overproduce like "the-bull-in-a-china shop" mentality. Thus, will expect weakening on going oil prices at least until late summer .... I just sold OXY (which I do like). Will watch XOM when it cuddles the $ 65.00 neighborhood and newer global picture/informationally; then marry-up with XOM.

  • Central Banking Refuted In One Blog- Thanks Ben! [View article]
    Good response on your part. Prof. Friedman under whom I was a student is indicative of politicians; oh you say he was an economist, not once one steps into-the-realm of politics. Then one transitions into a chameleon (a forked tongue reptilian). And, oh you thought I was alluding to the occupant in the White House ....

    Janet Yellen/FED is getting much more political/shadow-activist (Bloomberg). The Fed/Treasury machinations looking maybe worse than Jekyll Island fame (or should I say infamous ....).

  • Michael Kors Should Follow Foot Locker With An Enormous Buyback Program [View article]
    If KORS doesn't follow thru on this soon, even spring time upsurge buying won't improve the stock strength; maybe their indifference will see more downside weakness. They are not doing a good PR spin of awareness to the market place, and it's obvious "the-market" is not happy nor satisfied with seeming indolence. To often we see the Fashion Industry reflect passive arrogance; not good!

  • Michael Kors: Underappreciated Despite Another Strong Quarter [View article]
    Would suggest KORS to be a "close-relative" of Ralph Lauren; not exact at all ----- yet, but, closing in at pace. As an investor one cannot be indifferent to the KORS margins comparison; overwhelming. The upside is energized to take off.
