  • Schorsch Hooks A Big Lobster [View article]
    Yeah, Red Lobster is hardly a marquee name with a bright future. This feels like iffy news at best for ARCP.

  • 8 Dividend Stocks With A 15% Yield In 15 Years [View article]
    Yeah, it is pretty tenuous to assume that they'll be able to maintain such a high dividend growth rate for the next 15 years.

  • Dividend Investors Should Take A Bite Of This Delicious Apple [View article]
    It is wildly unfair that someone who would write such silly posts like this and your others above should have such a beautiful pile of stock.

  • A Look At A New Dividend Investing Strategy [View article]
    ***Danger! Danger!***

    This sounds like a pretty terrible idea. And forgive me, but until I see you've done a detailed spreadsheet, it doesn't seem like you've thought it through too carefully. Borrowing to buy shares on the assumption that four or more years hence your yield on cost will exceed the interest is pretty speculative. It is a variable interest rate. Moreover, you don't "break even" at the crossover point (when your yield on cost gets higher than the interest rate) -- you don't "break even" until you've covered the losses you gather in the intervening time. And if the stock goes south (whether by itself or as part of a larger market swoon), you're going to wish you'd never even contemplated this. Finally, it would seem like when the market is at all time highs is the worst of all possible times to undertake an adventure like this.

    Don't get me wrong -- I'm all for adventures, even the financial kind, if done with a small portion of your funds. But you seem to be talking about this as a logical extension of a very conservative dividend growth strategy. I think you should tread very carefully.

    What are you missing?

    You're missing some marbles if you are truly turning to an internet comments thread for advice about how to handle your $1.78 MILLION dollars worth of AAPL shares.

  • McDonald's Earnings: The End Of An Era? [View article]
    I also think the coverage of the "breakfast wars" misses the mark. I'd bet that all the coverage of the "war" has helped the bottom lines of BOTH MCD and BK by getting new customers out for a fast food breakfast, rather than just reallocating a fixed number of customers among the chains.

  • How Much Does Seeking Alpha Pay Its Contributors? [View article]
    Yes, the option to "ignore" specific authors would be a huge welcome. And would probably provide the editors with extremely valuable and actionable information.

  • Procter & Gamble declares $0.6436 dividend [View news story]
    Yes, not a bad raise for a huge, mature company like PG. But, as I've explained in detail here:, the quality of this raise depends on whether PG will be able to get earnings moving in the right direction again.

  • Janssen submits new drug application for HIV therapy [View news story]
    I've said several times before that JNJ is such a giant that any particular new drug or product is unlikely to move the needle significantly, in terms of earnings or share price growth. But in aggregate, these are the types of moves that make JNJ one of the most successful companies on the planet. Sounds like this drug could simplify treatment for lots of patients and hence could be very desirable. Join great forum discussion of JNJ as a dividend growth machine here:

  • More on Ford's U.S. sales [View news story]
    I'm not sure if I'd buy a lot of F at these prices, but the company seems to be executing incredibly well these days, and when it was back below $10 (which was not all that long ago), it was a pretty easy buy. Good discussion here:

    The only things that EVER crash on my iMac are Word for Mac and Excel for Mac. Am very curious about the quality / stability of these iPad apps.
