  • Connecting The Dots: The Iconic Coca-Cola Is A Sell At $38 [View article]
    As a trade, you may be correct. However, as a long-term investment KO is still one of the best buy and hold companies out there (especially with its historically low p/e and historically high yield. I would say though, that i.) it is way, way too early to argue that KO is not a stable dividend payer, or will soon become unstable...the 52 years of dividend increases with a payout ratio of 59% shows that to be true. ii) Your statement "...shares are 10% - 20% overvalued from its current price of $38 based on the four bullet point highlighted at the beginning of this concise write up." may be accurate, but using what model? What are your inputs? There are no figures in those bullet points to mathematically or empirically back up that argument.

  • Baxter to split into two; shares soar [View news story]
    Be interesting to see if/how the dividend arrangement changes. Anyone find any information regarding that?

  • SodaStream's Big Fat Elephant Question In The Room [View article]
    It would be fine to use assumptions, and it would give your article more weight, if you shared those assumptions and the reasoning behind choosing one over the other. Citing 'Pepsi is the cola for the younger generation' and 'it just makes sense' doesn't hold much water. I'm just saying some additional empirical evidence would be nice. Also, why do you think PEP would collaborate with SODA rather than, say, DPS?

    Not sure how that uses Occam's Razor. No competing hypotheses, only one assumption...

  • An Alternative Approach To Calculating Berkshire Hathaway's Intrinsic Value [View article]
    Are you waiting in order to market time, or because you feel BRK is overvalued? If the former, don't. If the latter, what do you believe a fair price to be?

  • Walmart raises annual dividend to $1.92 per share, representing the 41st consecutive year of dividend increases [View article]
    Agree, awful. Basically only done to claim 41 years of dividend increases.

  • Small Potatoes Investing: Dilemmas Of Regularly Investing Small Amounts [View article]
    The problem with that is attempting to gauge the annual return and then essentially market time. I see your point, but what you need to keep in mind is i) if you're buying to trade and simply hope the stock with rise in a set amount of time, the commissions shouldnt matter all that much (you're hoping for large gains) and ii) if you're investing in retirement accounts, you want to keep costs as low as possible but paying a dollar or two more on a cost basis standpoint for something that you wont touch for 25+ years is a rounding error. This is especially the case in blue-chip dividend stocks where you're commission is essentially reimbursed after the first dividend payment.

    I agree. People would be better off to do company-sponsored DRIPs if they are able to do so (I, sadly, cannot due to SEC regulations). As with all investing, regardless of portfolio size, minimizing your fees/expenses and sticking to a regular investing schedule (be it monthly purchases or set dollar amount) are incredibly important.

    Nothing wrong with small position investing, you need to start somewhere. After a point, and this will take some time, the power of compounding takes over for you. It has been said my times but it holds true; do not despise the day of small beginnings. Goodluck.

  • 10 Rules For Investing In Today's Stock Market [View article]
    I think you are half correct although I'll have to look into it. Disney will still be issuing paper certificates, they just will no longer be negotiable. This will still allow for people to buy the certificate and have it framed for their office or their kids, grandkids, etc as a birthday present. There are plenty of gorgeous stock certificates around for purchase in the secondary market, beautiful art and great conversation starters.

    It depends, but mine are registered to me directly and are negotiable. However, most companies are moving away from that, I think either today or tomorrow is the last day you can order a negotiable $DIS certificate, they seem to be moving entirely into book entry.

    You can still order negotiable stock certificates from places like OneShare.com. I have $BRKB, $SBUX, and $DIS framed in my living room. Great pieces of art and they (ideally) appreciate in value...nothing wrong with that.

    Great article and as a new DGI'er in my Roth (Traditional IRA is an index ETF and BRKB), I am looking to build a solid base of 15-20 'forever' stocks and then branch out. I'm not seeing too many great values right now, but I don't mind slightly overpaying for $KO, $JNJ, $PG, etc with a 50+ year investment horizon. Also, do you prefer to DRIP or pool and then selectively reinvest dividends? I am going back and forth on that one. Thank you.
