    I agree, their the guys who go out after the battle, shoot the wounded and strip the bodies for any valuables.

  • Oil & Gas Correction Scorecard: Have We Seen The 'Capitulation' Yet?  [View article]
    We should all be ready for the turn around and start picking cherries when the market shows us the turn.

    I, for one, would prefer to buy in on the way up from the bottom than start buying in before the bottom and before I realized the magnitude of the correction.

    This should also inform all of us that "what goes down must come up". We are not through with petroleum yet. We will be using petroleum for many years and it will continue to be a valuable commodity probably for the rest of my lifetime.

  • An End To Our Relationship With Yahoo, A New Era For Equity Research  [View article]
    I have noticed a decline in the quality for news on Finance.Yahoo. Too many articles from Motley Fool. Too many articles about how to build a retirement plan, too many spouting the same ways to cash out your 401K, too many about how to build wealth without any real information.
    SA has real life information, carefully thought out and well layed out. I also like the comments afterward. Often there is as much information from readers as there is in the article.

    Thank you for the good work. I'll be signing in more often.

  • A Requiem For Plug-Mania  [View article]
    I have heard that this Left jerk is known for yelling FIRE in crowded places and that he and company that he works for have been sanctioned for these and other comments he has dumped on investers.
    He should be hung out to dry.

    Rwe Ag pays a dividend once a year, maybe. This years dividend is half of last years.
    What a good deal, NOT.

  • Linn Energy: A Curious Acquisition  [View article]
    The price of LINE/LNCO has been volatile because Barrons and some trader has been spreading vicious rumors about their accounting practices which caused the stocks price to drop like the proverbial rock. In my opinion, this was done purely to cause the price to drop so that they could profit from it.

    There should be (but won't be) an SEC investigation of both of these articles and of all the Lai.., excuse me, Lawyers who filed suite in this matter (deal).

  • Linn Energy Is Moving Ahead In Spite Of Hedge Fund Machinations  [View article]
    How much LINE/LNCO stock do you suppose Jon Jacobson of Highfields Capital Management/Barron's pickup last week?

    They will probably profit handsomely when all of this finally shakes out while the rest of us "ordinary traders" either sold long ago or sat and wrung our hands while all of this crap played out.

    Long LNCO.

  • Annaly Capital - Bargain Or Falling Knife? Questions You Must Ask  [View article]
    It might be well to look at this companies history. 1997 was a long time ago and they have weathered many brutal markets. I like their longevity.

  • Seadrill Continues To Deliver On Growth Promise  [View article]
    I bought SDRL at $39 in Dec on the basis of one of these articles and my look at their finances. They have done nothing but go down since then. I still feel good about their chances of putting these new rigs to work and doing well in '13 but this article has done nothing to increase my confidence.

  • 3 Healthcare REITs For Dividend Investors  [View article]
    Alright, who owns Emeritas? First you tell us about the $1.7B acquisition by HCP. Then, in the last paragrph, you talk about how VTR will see great benefit from the aquision of Emeritas. I'm just curious because my mother is living in one of their assisted living centers

  • Building A 6% Income Portfolio For 2013 (Part 9): Materials  [View article]
    I tend to think of 2 - 3% yield as a waste of time. I'm retired and supplementing my social security with dividend income and I usually don't waste my time with less than 5%.
    When I was building my retirement I would save my dividends up and buy another issue. Now that I'm retired I just keep them in cash (except now they are building up on me) I am far exceeding my Required Minimum Distribution in annual income each year and never touching my Principal. I average about 7% dividends (incl '08).
    That's my retirement plan and I'm sticking to it.

  • Dividend Investors - Don't Just Stand There - Do Something  [View article]
    Why would anyone sell a winning stock and put that money into, if not an out and out loser, than perhaps one that wasn't doing as well?

    Just doesn't make sense to me.

  • Smackdown: Dividends vs Annuities, The Main Event  [View article]
    Why would you have to sell stock? The numbers used are very conservative on the dividend side too. I easily manage to make 7% avg on my dividends. And, you will note, that the value of the portfolio increases as well.
