  • Retirement Strategy: General Electric Just Might Be The 2013 Stock Of The Year (Part 32) [View article]
    Clearly the dividend has lagged the share price, earnings, and revenue move. Of course Immelt panicked and had to cut It, after he promised It was safe. I'm sure the stock price will return to the mid thirties some day. Lets hope the dividend catches up to the stock price. As for the split in the energy divison, It seems to me that It's more moving parts in the company. Some would argue that they need to spin off some of their divisions. GE Capital? I have said many times, the dividend(s) from GE capital should go to a divdend increase

  • When To Sell Your Dividend Stocks [View article]
    I agree with alot of this article. For investors, like myself who reinvest the dividends, the compounding effect is better when the price is low. So when a stock has doubled, then I'm reinvesting at a higher price and get less of a "bang for my buck" . So I have sold some good companies, and taken the profit, and bought others that are undervalued. I have sold HD, AXP, MSFT, and WMT. I'm looking at some that I have already bought ( WAG, SU, ADM, POT ), or will buy. So buy low, sell high, and also try to keep your dividend yield at a steady pace. Some companies I will never sell as my core holdings. JNJ, KO, GE, TD, MDT, etc.

  • Pharma Investments Are Starting to Pay Off [View article]
    I like the ehalth care sector, and look for it to rise in the future. Once all those baby boomers start to retire on mass, pharma products will be in demand. Long term shareowners will do well in this sector.

  • Ip Blames Greenspan for Lack of Regulation [View article]
    Greenspan was asleep at the wheel while this mess was building, and now he says that it's not his fault.
    C'mon .... we are not stupid people !!
    The truth is starting to come out about how
    responsible he really was. He should just shut up, and
    stop blaming others for his own incompetence

  • Petro-Canada Can Handle $50-$60 Oil in 2009 [View article]
    Any compsny will low debt in this economy is a good thing.
    By all forecasts the days of cheap oil are long behinds us.
    With the world economies down at the moment I like oil
    companies to rebound along with the world economies, when they start returning to more stable levels of growth.

  • Investors Appear Less Enamored with Dividend Paying Companies [View article]
    While I have not sold my many dividend payers in this bear
    market because they are below my average price, and other
    than the big banks they will return sometime to decent
    levels when this down turn is over. On the other hand,
    I'm rewarding the companies that have not cut their
    dividend by putting new money in their shares. A few
    come to mind that will reward investors over many years.
    KO, JNJ, PG, WMT, TRI, THI, etc. will share the cash with

    I really think that PFE should almost not be on the
    list considering that all that cash has pretty much been spent with their blockbuster purchase

  • 'AAA' Rated Companies: And Then There Were Six [View article]
    I like JNJ, they seem to power on thru any market, and any
    economy. GE will return someday. The housing mess will
    clear, and the underlining strenght of the company will
    return to historic levels.

  • The 'Sell After Dividend Cut/Freeze' Rule, With Exceptions [View article]
    I held Sara Lee for a number of years before they re-structured, and cut their dividend. After a few years
    they increased it again, however the underlining
    problems in the company has effected on the price. Warren
    Buffet always says, once a company re-structures they are dead money for a number of years.

  • Alan Greenspan, Obfuscator Par Excellence [View article]
    Greenspan is a coward, and a liar. He was asleep at the wheel when america really needed leadership. Now he says
    that his policy was sound, and he did'nt do anything wrong.
    What a mess he created. Guys like him and madoff should
    go to jail forever.

  • Johnson & Johnson: Undervalued Below $55 [View article]
    Great company with NO toxic assets. Dividend growth looks
    good going forward. Currently below $50, which is a good entry point for anyone who wants to become rich in the
    long term. I hope the price stays low for awhile, so I can buy more !!

  • Alan Greenspan Still Doesn't Have a Clue [View article]
    Greenspan was asleep at the wheel, and now he is
    blaming others f0r his mistakes. He is prolly related to that other coward madoff. They both should be locked up for 150 years, with bread and water.

  • Time to Buy China, Copper, the Canadian Dollar and Oil [View article]
    If you beleave that there is no more cheap oil being found, then the
    Canadian dollar is a good long term bet, because it's a petro dollar.
    I would also agree that China is another long term play because it's
    in the early stages on it's development the same way the US was in
    the last century. The US is in deep debt, and can't affort it's health
    care, and pension committments in the future. Unless it exports
    more goods than it imports, ( not likely ) then the tax rate will
    have to rise to fund these programs. The point is that you have to
    look at other areas beside the US market.
