  • How A Dividend Growth Investor Can Cope With Risk [View article]
    My 38% allocation in bonds during 2008-2009 is what kept me from panic-selling. Sure, my stocks were tanking, but my bonds were providing ballast, so I didn't sell anything (came awfully close, though!).
    My bond allocation is now only 30% (stock prices are way up), so I will be adding shortly, and I always hold to maturity.

    Yep, bonds do have their place in any portfolio, especially since a correction is "just around the corner"!

  • The Current Dip Makes BCE, Inc. Attractive For A Buy Rating [View article]
    As a shareholder of both companies, I sold off BA on the buyout announcement, making a small gain after receiving lots of dividends.

    I sold just to keep my accounting simple. Cash, shares, combo? To hell with it.

  • Microsoft: The Era Of $99 Windows Tablets Is Here [View article]
    Geez, Walter, what's the name of the planet YOU live on? I have CHOSEN msft products since dos 1.1, and have become quite wealthy using their products (I'm a self-employed accountant, btw). I could never have achieved such success with any other operating system, Excel, Word etc.

    In a sense, though, you're right - I really had no other choice....

    BTW, I LOVE my Surface Pro 3, and I CHOSE it over an ipad....

    Thanks for the article. I've been watching MCD for a while, but just can't pull the trigger yet. If earnings beat this quarter, maybe I'll initiate a position....

  • Microsoft: A Monopoly No More? [View article]
    You lost me with your first sentence: "Microsoft (MSFT) began as a monopoly and then continued to be one."

    How a company "begins as a monopoly" is beyond the absurd! I don't know which school you attended, but you sure didn't get your money's worth!

    I will make sure to never again click on your posts....

    Mr. Feng,
    This is the 2nd article I've read that you have penned, both of which I found very biased and misleading. Please rest assured that I will never click on any forthcoming articles you may publish.

    Bugle, if WAG is considering inversion, it's because they figure they are not paying their "fair share", but rather, are getting RIPPED.

    If they make the move and save 10-15% in taxes, maybe your RX's will be cheaper, too! Only losers are over-spending, squandering governments!
