  • Do Not Follow The Herd - Sell McDonald's And Microsoft [View article]
    The author fails to understand that MSFT has basically reinvented and/or adjusted its business model, which takes time. MSFT now has a new foundation with a base price of $45 - $48. Now if things develop further (Cloud, Hardware, multiple new acquisitions) then MSFT is well on its way to $60 or more. Granted that may take a year or two, but that will give the author enough time to understand what is really going on...

  • Microsoft Is Copying Apple's Strategy, And It Will Work [View article]
    Over the last decade or so MSFT has literally lost and wasted money (in the billions). However current Management seems to have gotten the company on a solid path making MSFT a solid Dividend Growth Stock. This article implies that MSFT stock may soar in the near future and maybe double in a few years. Hopefully MSFT plans of becoming a hardware/software company will make this happen. The Surface product looks to be a home run. Nice article

  • Why I'm Reiterating Income Investors Buy Consolidated Edison Instead Of Southern Company [View article]
    With Kemper there may be some additional expenses for a year which may (or may not) effect SO, however once online Kemper will grow SO stock price as well as it already nice dividend. "One step backward (maybe) for 10 steps ahead" Now Con Ed has a solid dividend, but my money stays with SO in my dividend Portfolio.

  • What Attracted Me To Dividend Growth Investing, Part 1 [View article]
    Great article and I wish you all the best. Just to share to you what can be accomplished, I did not always do the right thing in life but one thing I did do right was to start a DRIP program in my early 30's. I purchased 1 share of stock in 7 companies for about a total 0f $200. Over the years I watched the reinvestments and made additional contributions ($10.00, $25.00 $100.00, whatever extra money I had in the check book at months end). A few years back I changed that DRIP program to a Dividend Growth (in some ways the same thing), and today my Div. Growth portfolio approaches 1 million. Retirement is about 4 years away. And please do not read this as me saying I will have a million. Read it as what anyone can and SHOULD do. I wish you and all investors the very best.

  • Alcoa to curtail remaining refining capacity at Suralco [View news story]
    Hardrock48 - you seem have (or do have) a great deal of knowledge about the aluminum business and therefore AA. Do you see a turn around perhaps the share price to double sometime in 2017? Any information would be appreciated.

  • Quest For Growth: How Does A 20% Dividend Sound? [View article]
    I think this stock is listed on the pink sheets with a price around $10. It may allow for decent dividends and even profit, but the risk is very high. Not saying that one should or should not buy it if you want to chance a flier, am saying that it has no place in a growth/income portfolio.

  • Emerson Electric's Dividend Is The Only Reason To Own It [View article]
    Emerson Elec has low debt and a solid return on equity. The article is correct about the dividend, but to me this stock (first is solid income stock), but second I think would be an excellent "buy low (now) and sell high (7 to 10 years)" .

  • Will The Dividend Grow? [View article]
    Dollar$ - that (the number of stocks to hold for proper diversification) is an argument that a 100 books could be written about. But (and as you are probably stating) an income investor needs to properly diversify.

  • 10 Stocks Delivering Good News With Higher Dividends [View article]
    Clueless: Diversify and with that type of cash and not knowing, I would go to the Vanguard Web Site and check out their target date funds and call them for advice. Also you could read some SA Articles (Fish, Wells, Carnevel). Check around, get knowledgeable before you make a move...
