  • Westport's Proposed Takeover Of Fuel Systems Solutions: 'Rotten To The Core'  [View article]
    WPRT & FSYS takeover yield a company with +500 natural gas engine & Storage of nat gas patents... FSYS brings needed cash and revenue generation badly needed to WPRT. WPRT had +400 patents the leader in nat gas patents with the closest competitor being CAT with 300 and a ford with 180 patents....essentially... joinning of both companies will reap rewards in the long term as Nat Gas operated fleet begin taking market share from diesel operated fleets...and all the big truck companies, PACCAR, CAT, a few others have to at least consider using WPRT to manufacture their horse power.

  • Should You Bet On Cliffs Natural Resources' Turnaround Going Into 2016?  [View article]
    I'll reiterate... class action suits against the company by shareholders is the only possible upside.

  • Should You Bet On Cliffs Natural Resources' Turnaround Going Into 2016?  [View article]
    clf will never be a turn around. the previous management team assured that when they bought the Canadian mines without any trucking, or rail capacity and garantees for an over blown price then sunk hundreds of millions of cash into it any way. Frankly why there hasn't been a share holder class suit against clf for that blunder et. all. is beyond me

  • Dividend Growth Investors: I Have A Few Questions  [View article]
    OP Stated in part three

    "First, I believe holding smaller positions serves to guard against loss of income due to dividend cuts or eliminations. Second, I question my ability to achieve similar performance holding half as many positions as I do currently. Third, I question whether my "Best Ideas" would outperform my larger portfolio."

    First I have adopted a very similar three step strategy for my DIV portfolio it has worked out very well.

    Regarding your question in part 2.

    I have a very simple strat for this that has proven over time to work efficiently and with good returns both on Div and in Cap Appreciation.

    When I buy an initial position of a DIV stock it is alway important to recoup your initial investment ... so when/if the stock presumably bought low appreciates to 10% and stalls I sell off 90% of the shares leaving 10% shares. Basically with a 10% Cap appreciation you recoup nearly 100% of initial investment leaving 10% of shares in your portfolio for the remainder of your years.

    you can also do this at 20% cap Appreciation with a sale of 80% of share and again at 30% cap appreciation with a sale of 70% of shares. The judgement on this comes with do you sell at 10%, 20% or 30%... about 80% of the time if your entry price was near the 200 Day Moving average you will return over three months about 20%... if it stalls at 10% Sell 90% of your share get your money back...rinse and repeat.

    Some may say its silly to have 100 shares of something and sell 90% leaving 10 shares of it....Its not. It adds up over time...and consistently applied keeps your initial capital reproducing similar results.

    Question three:

    Smaller positions diversify your portfolio... 100 Stocks all invested at 1% of your cost basis =100% if any one tanks on market driven catalysts then you get hurt only at 1% assuming a diversified portfolio. This effect also minimizes potential cuts in DIV's to annual income.

    As long as the capital invested is returning your "minimum" of 2.7% (Mine is 3.5% unless its a blue chip like CAT then I will accept 3.25%) then it doesn't matter the Stock. Its about returning your capital, which you reinvest...take back out on 10/20% gains and leave those remaining shares to increase your annual Div's.

    The goal with DIV investing is always receiving capital in return...both on appreciation and on DIV

    Since 2007 I have consistently had a return of between 5.4 and 6.8% in DIV, which has gone up every year since 2007...my portfolio includes 38 positions up from 7 in 2007. My day to day Cap appreciation fluctuations seem to be less and my portfolio shows a 40% unrealized gain using these methods.

    I even have a single stock that has completely paid for itself in its DIV's since 2007 without ever having sold a single share.

    Yes, of course I have had losses...They are not mistakes rather my learning processes and cost of doing business.

    Always price your entry's just above the 200 day MVA on healthy Div producing stocks

    Oh and one of your biggest DIV investing mistakes.. IS being attached to the total amount of DIV returned on your total shares.

    Div stocks should also be sold. Preferably the higher cost lots first...thereby increasing your DIV return.

    Selling percentages of your DIV stock based on Cap appreciation in those stocks is a VERY GOOD thing .. it turns over your inventory of Cash... the more you turn over your inventory of cash the Better you are off .. assuming higher gains versus loses.

    hope some of this makes sense to you
