  • The Latest Round of Housing Fixes [View article]
    Tom is telling you about the economy and what is happening. You have to use your brain and interpret that into the stock market.
    As for me I have finally had it and will say it.
    Obama KNOWS WHAT HE IS DOING . He is dragging down the entire country with bailouts, debts, mosques,health care,suing Arizona,welcoming illegals with amnesty, and plenty of vacation time..
    His objective is to destroy America. No one can be that dumb that they do ALL the things he has promoted and they are ALL wrong. The odds of that occurring have to be astronomical. His objective is to bring the U.S. to it's knees for Allah.
    Background: I am 71 years. old. Retired aircraft mechanic. Live in Ca. No party affiliation. Been in the stock market for 52 yrs. Viet Nam 2 yrs.
    My advise is to buy dividend stocks ONLY until this clown is out of office. When Bush was in I was making a decent living in the market. Now I am sucking wind big time.

  • Johnson & Johnson: Undervalued and Looking Good [View article]
    No pissing match on this side. Just intelligent conversation.
    JNJ is one of 8 "AAA" companies and the movement in stock price is minuscule. Was it rated by the same agencies as the Enron or Bear Sterns companies?
    Many companies have increased dividends for years but when they stop they stop. That is the past. BAC lowered their dividend which they have been paying for many years.
    The BAC L shares survived the bubble without dropping the dividend.
    Better to have 7.6% now then hope to get 4% in the future!
    Obama is ruining the country and the market and I do not see him stopping. I say lock in a healthy dividend, period.

    hat_trick 3
    Argumentative? Nonsense. Why would anyone want 3% on a company not backed by the U.S. government like BAC is. Their preferred yields 7.6% and I feel they will be around a long time.
    Before I get Treasuries, at this rate, I would put my cash under a mattress.
    Everyone of my clients have some in their holdings.
    Long Bac.L

    Old Rick,
    I was not referring to an IRA. I am not speculating on the dividend tax going away. Not with the deficit we have and growing. And I am not going to sit on something for 35 yrs.
    You did not mention inflation. You did not mention that the taxes are more likely to go higher in those 35 yrs. rather than lower.

    3% dividend? After taxes 2 1/2%. After inflation 2%.
    After Obama raises the tax rate 1 3/4%.
    Adding to that the risk of the shares! Gotta be kidding buying this stock for the dividend.

  • More Half-Baked Justice From the SEC [View article]
    Exposing directors and senior executives to greater personal liability would go a long way to reducing corporate fraud.

    It is the ONLY way to stop fraud!!

  • Quadrupling My Stake in Bank of America [View article]
    I observe the comments with terms I do not understand and charts that refer to heads and shoulders and ankles and butts. I read about the past and the future earnings and a great company. All of this is worthless talk.
    Essentially nothing has changed in this realm to advance the $4 price to today's $14 price so the comments are to me, useless.
    I am buying and bought for simplistic reasons that are working as I write short term call contracts and they expire worthless.
    1. This institution is sponsored by the government. It is like buying a treasury bond.
    2. This bank rips the money out of people with charges and low interest paid on their savings and I know that people are to lazy or ignorant to go to another bank.
    That's all the knowledge I need!!!

  • Bank of America: Why It's Scary Being a Bank in America [View article]
    You will have zero recoveries with out the banks.
    The Obama administration has no idea what this is doing to retirement portfolios. Mine has been devastated
    Then again maybe he does have an idea!!
    The Muslims call for the eradication of the western nations. This is what is happening now through the financial systems. 14 trillion in debt and going up. 10 to 14% unemployment. Oil flooding the Gulf with untold financial destruction. Rules to kill the banking system just as they may be recovering from taxpayer bailouts. Mortgage legislation that was passed but is in effective. Health care that will cost billions more.
    An amnesty bill for illegals that will suck the remaining blood out of each American.
    The Democrats should write a book entitled, "How To Kill A Once Powerful Nation" by Barrack Hussein Obama.

    Obama will support the banks. Bailouts are continuing with mid size banks getting money, but no publicity.

  • Double-Dip Recession Signs Materializing [View article]

    When Obama and Hillary were running for office I remember them answering the question, how would you deal with Iran and the response was they would talk to them. Did they get a chance to talk to IRAN?

    What happened to the green shoots they were talking about 10 months ago?
    With a 13 trillion dollar debt and climbing I do not see any green shoots! In the wings are more taxes for medicare and less money for buying products and investments.

  • Crisis and Opportunity: Our Take on Drillers [View article]
    BP goes on and on. Alaska next.
    The project, called Liberty, would include a dicey technique of drilling two miles beneath the sea and then up to eight miles horizontally -- all under enormous pressure in a pristine sea that would be devastated by an oil spill. The project already has its state and federal permits, but BP still has to apply for its final permit to drill, which is expected later this year.
    This is change.
