  • Time To Take Profits?: 16 Dividend Stocks That Are Currently Overvalued (Part 1) [View article]
    Most good dividend stocks have gone up 10%-20% in the last six months because bonds have been yielding less than a good company like (MMM), or just about any quality USA company. For that reason, most stocks are overpriced simply because they are being bought for their yield. As long as inflation remains low, these stocks will remain at their current prices, or go even go higher. Also, any companies that continue to raise dividends in this environment will go higher, especially if these companies are making money. I would say that most equities ARE overvalued, but yield starved investors will continue to buy them until the first sign of rising inflation occurs and the dividend yields can't keep up with inflation. For this reason, selling to take a profit does not make sense, unless you can put that money into an equity that has dipped on some bad seasonal news and been hammered. Buying the dips and selling the rips still seems to be working as much today, as it has been for the last five years.

    My no. one rule in today's investing environment, has been to buy good companies with good management, good products and good financials. Buying any company that produces a product that we will not be using in ten years, or a company with too many quality competitors is a risk. For that reason, there are really not that many "safe" companies out there worth buying for the long haul. 3M seems to be a company that fits into my safe mode, so I will continue buying this company for my portfolio. 3M is still a "best of breed" stock that has a great bottom line, is well managed and continues to raise its dividend every year. It also has an amazing product line that few companies can match. Selling it to just take profit does not make sense unless you have a better company to put your cash into. Good luck.

  • 3 Reasons Why Apple Is Heading Lower [View article]
    Even if Apple drops post split as I feel it will (it seems that most stocks I have owned have done that), once investors get used to its new lower price, it will begin selling to the upside and I believe it hits $90-$100 dollars a share in December 2014 from the approximately $85 dollar split price. If the new projected iphone 6 is as exciting as rumors project , Apple will may even hit $120 before the end of the year. I know I can't wait to see a bigger phone from Apple. Once thing is for certain. The anticipation of the phone will be HUGE news for the weeks preceding its release, which means the price of Apple shares will head higher.

  • Sirius Is A Good Gambit Toward A $4 Price Target [View article]
    SIRI was at $3.86 just two months ago. Where is it now, $3.24? I still own a token 500 shares, but I hardley consider that significant. I actually hope you are right and this stock goes higher so I can sell those shares off. As for this stock forming a cup and handle, that is ridiculous.

    This stock is still one of the most shorted stocks in history, which is justified and I do not see that changing anytime soon. As I have said in prior posts, this company simply has too much competition.

  • Sirius Is A Good Gambit Toward A $4 Price Target [View article]
    tiger, of course Apple has little to do with hurting SIRI, but that day is coming. Apple is a major threat to SIRI, so take the blinders off. I think there are many companies that will go after a piece of the Sirius/XM pie, some of them formidable. Even the internet is headed for the dashboard which would be an amazing advance and make installing a Sirius radio into a vehicle seem a bit ridiculous.

    I understand the frustration here with those of you who want to see SIRI go higher and even if it does, you know it will fall due to technology advances anyway. I fought the fight myself for ten years, hoping that SIRI would someday replace the ancient AM/FM radio in all automobiles, but all of us know deep down that this company will be ancient history itself. I find it hilarious how people hang on to this stock and its ugly sister GOGO. Both companies are headed for extinction.

    I have been buying AAPL and if you had put that cash into Apple Sgro, you would not only have made more money, but would have a nice dividend coming up soon to boot. Apple, by the way, is another reason why SIRI is not doing well, since Apple is a competitor (along with many other companies that are moving into the automobile. You are lucky to have made money though. Many of the folks here, got into Sirius when it went up to the $3.80's a on the announcement of the Liberty deal and have lost a lot of cash. Take your $2500 profit and run

    SIRI was at $7 bucks ten years ago. It is at $3 and change today. What's that tell you about this company.

  • Crown Holdings: Boring, Safe, And Hugely Profitable [View article]
    This company is well run, with some outstanding managers who know how to grow this company. Crown got out of the bottle business a few years ago to focus on cans and that has been a great move. When you look a the (CCK) chart over the last ten or so years, you see a beautiful upward average that few companies can match. Not spectacular, but the growth of this company has been just excellent. I still would like to see shareholders get a dividend and if that happened, the shares of Crown, in my opinion, would take off. Sadly, there seems to be little desire by Crown Holdings to institute a dividend. That I feel, is a mistake since nearly all respected companies in today's dog eat dog world, have a dividend. Dividends show confidence in the products those companies produce. Crown does buy back shares, but what does that prove? Many companies do that, but those shares wind up as bonus shares to management. I want to see the shareholders rewarded by Crown.

  • Keystone pipeline decision delayed again, likely until after November elections [View news story]
    Trinta, good points on God saving us. By the way, has anyone noticed that the primary purpose of most pastors, especially those on TV, is to get you to send them $$$$ by dialing their 800 number and giving them your credit card donation? What does God have to do with your credit card?

  • Keystone pipeline decision delayed again, likely until after November elections [View news story]
    Agree. Eminent domain to cross farms is a disgraceful way to go with this uneeded pipeline to begin with. I wonder how many politicians would allow a pipeline to run through the middle of their properties.

  • Keystone pipeline decision delayed again, likely until after November elections [View news story]
    What is the value of the Keystone pipeline when most of the tar sands oil that will be flowing through it will be dirty oil and go overseas anyway. Once the pipes are in place, not that many jobs will remain and with domestic oil/gas doing so well, who even cares about tar sands oil anyway.
