  • Procter & Gamble's Dividend Outlook For 2015 And 2016 [View article]
    I think the PG's current advertising spend is $$$ well spent. Agree that current streamlining and focus will make a stronger PG.

  • Intel downgraded at Morgan Stanley; now sharply lower premarket [View news story]
    What a fortunate choice in Brian Krzanich as a leader, I thought as I listened to the conference call. Heard the inventory topic discussed, and thought it was actually good news because it indicated a more favorable holiday season than the past two years.

  • 4 Dividend Stocks For A Confident And Secure Future [View article]
    How do we become so confident in a process that we are willing to trust our life's savings to as the world crumbles around us?

    Aint it the truth! Great article, know your companies and believe in them for the future. That's where I say yes to PG, but no to MCD because I don't believe in MCD's longterm product/future.

    Thanks for the words of wisdom.

  • Constructing A Monthly Income Portfolio [View article]
    Eli - Thank you for the information and the article. I use SDIV, IYLD, PGF and some bond funds for monthly and have a portfolio of stocks that pay quarterly. Didn't realize so many stocks are paying in that one sequence!

    SA commenters: mind your manners or no one will write any articles at all!

  • How To Get $1,000 Annual Dividends From Royal Dutch Shell In 2024 [View article]
    Thanks for the article. I like your thinking ... what will generate $1000 of income ... I know another guy who likes to buy enough AEP to pay his electric bill with the dividends.

    I have an RDS-B position representing my energy sector. To their credit, they are trying to streamline their program, which was hopelessly complex. I like the income, and the foreign exposure in my portfolio. It's really not a breach of faith for a company to streamline, so to those who have dumped it because of this change, i say OMG, people, it's not like an accounting irregularity.

    I don't mind accumulating dividends in my cash account and purchasing more stock at a better price. I frequently change all my reinvestment options to cash when a stock is at a high price, so I can buy at a lower price.

  • Grocery Store Wars: Procter & Gamble Vs. General Mills - Which Is The Best Investment? [View article]
    Thank you for the article. I am long PG and have GIS on my candidate list. Although I've been a little frustrated by the "stodgy" PG, I see positive signs recently (spf 30 in Olay), the recent "Tide It" campaign and tide Oxy product. And I like the PG global footprint. I'd still like to have GIS in my my portfolio in the future.

  • Royal Dutch Shell Changes Rules, So Now What? (Part 2) [View article]
    Clearly the whole dividend structure at RDS was too complex, and any steps to simplify it are welcome, and will result in efficiency. That's the kind of thing you like to see in a company. Thanks though to SA for commenting on it, because as usual it's almost impossible to find enough information on the Shell website to understand what they are really doing. When they get that figured out, it will be a real improvement.

    Still long RDSB, sold the one share of RDSA that I received by accident (mine). Receive my dividends in cash and purchase additional RDSB periodically.

  • The Great Correction Of 2014: Be Prepared To 'Buy The Dip' [View article]
    " Clearly, the risk is that the stock drops significantly below the strike and you are forced to buy the stock at a price well above market. "

    This is a pretty big risk --- especially if you think the market will correct --- which it probably will when number targets like 17000 and 2000 are hit.

    It's pretty depressing to be forced to buy a stock at a higher price than the market is valueing it. That premium looks pretty palty when that happens.

  • Mad Money Recommends Boeing: So Is It Time To Sell? [View article]
    Cramer has been behind BA for years. So that was not a good lead for your article.

    If you listen to the conference calls (as Cramer advocates), you will know a lot about The Boeing Company and its management. It has helped me stay with my position during the delays of the Dreamliner, the battery issue, and other ups and downs along the way from 67 to 144, all the while paying a dividend, which nearly doubled this year.

    Back to Cramer, he is ego-driven and therefore human. But he raises the curtain on "trading", so those of us who are investors can develop a strategy. Mine is to be diversified, have plenty of cash, and to have confidence in my stock positions or drop them like a rock. He is not always right, because in my opinion, he still has an end-of-year perspective for the charitable trust, while I have a longer term perspective.

    Thank you for writing an article and stimulating the conversation!

  • As Plum Creek Timber Delivers A Strong Third Quarter, Here's Why I'm Staying Long [View article]
    It's not unusual for a REIT to do a secondary offering to raise $$$ for a specific purchase such as this. And it's also not unusual to have a sell off on the announcement in anticipation of the pricing of the secondary. Almost a knee jerk reaction. Anyway, I was encouraged as I listened to the conference call by management's optimism, because this team has not been overly optimistic during the past 5 years. Long PCL.
