  • Microsoft And Intel Are Putting The 'Win' Back In Wintel [View article]
    Michael: your comment about David Trainer "calls a spade a spade" which makes him good, applies to you just as much. You are good. Over the past few years I have seen (literally) 100's of negative articles on MSFT and not many positive ones on Intel. However you wrote major supporting artricles on both. Your articles contain facts and figures, while others contain name calling terms.
    Bottom Line: I got in on MSFT at $26.00 a couple of years back and intel in the low 20's and held them in good part based on your articles. Case closed!
    Oh did I mention a couple of thousand in dividend income for my dividend growth portfolio.
    Just trying to make the point that your articles (with the facts) are great.

  • Alcoa's EPS Smelted By Balance Sheet [View article]
    My opinion is that wether the realizable values end up being greater than or less then cost, the article makes some excellent points.


    I am long AA and I made my purchase when the share price was just over $8.00, so obviously I am happy. In addition with the Company making some good moves (cost cutting, basically getting out of the smelting business and getting into more aero space etc. Not to mention the Auto industry now buidling vehicles with much more aluminum). I think AA will go into the $20's or more...

    But again - the ariticle makes some good points, cause you never know. And cutting Health costs, granted that will lower expenses, but won't happen. Remember Obama promising premium savings of $2500.00 and ends up on average people pay thousands more?

  • Just How Risky Is High-Yield Dividend Investing? [View article]
    Excellent Article: I am going to check out PSEC and most likely will make a purchase soon (will certainly do my own DD on it).
    I also feel that many who wrote comments are totally missing the point of the article which is to say that with Dividend Investing you need not have to stay with the Blue Chip 3% dividend stocks; that with proper analysis you can safely obtain much higher results.
    Now don't get me wrong the bulk of my portfolio is indeed in Blue Chips, however this article has opened my thought process up with a case in point of PSEC.
    Again: Great Article

  • 4 Key Dividend Metrics You Need To Know [View article]
    Not sure if anything under 5% is garbage. The higher the yield the higher the risk (in general) so where one income investor may be happy with 3% another may not...

  • 4 Key Dividend Metrics You Need To Know [View article]
    Good Article - under the dividend payout ratio section, my blue chips are all within the 30% to 60% range. My utilities on the other hand approach 100%. My thoughts are that the payout range for utilites would be higher as their price apprecation is essentially overall market driven (i.e. it trends up slowly), they have high expenses, which keep thier EPS down, but their revenue is constant and not really hindred by the changes in the economy. Therefore they can control the cash flow (payout) while not really having to depend that much on eps.
    Your thoughts on Utilities?

  • Can Alcoa Reach All-Time Highs In The Foreseeable Future? [View article]
    Perhaps a good article, perhaps a "cut and paste" article formed from general bits and pieces of others. The specific issue is that are you really saying anything with " It may come many years down the line, but I do believe that Alcoa has a real chance at reaching its historical highs".

  • Zalicus' Z160 Fails, What Now? [View article]
    Once Z160 failed the price obviously plummeted. Now there is a very good chance that ZLCS will go bankrupt (unless Z944 hits). So people took the risk on Z160, it failed now its get what you can get or there is a good chance of losing everything. Buy low sell high, no kidding. However this is a start up bio teck that is all risk...

  • Looking For Value In Southern Company [View article]
    Good article: SO is a leader. It is in an area of the country (Southeast) that is doing nothing but growing which should bode well for the Company. It's nuclear activity will increase costs in the near term, however once built will make SO more than just an effcient utility. In my opinion SO EPS will (as the article points out) show a decrease or remain flat over the next couple of years, however after that (and granted no cost surprises with the nuclear development) EPS should rocket. For the Dividend investor this is a must have stock in the portfolio. For the Growth investor buy as the stock hovers around or dips below $40.00, but make sure to purchase before 2016 as after that $50.00 or more is (to me) guaranteed.
