  • ConocoPhillips: How Risky Is The Dividend?  [View article]
    I own XOM, COP, WMB, MPC, PSX, so I have some skin in the game. I am not sure what to do but my gut says, "Hold on." I am perhaps in for the ride of my life, but I am not afraid. NOT AFRAID

  • Reuters/UofM Consumer Sentiment  [View news story]
    I hope this isn't a dumb question: Is the drop in Consumer Sentiment this month at least partly because people are anticipating that it will cost more to buy the ingredients to make a Thanksgiving meal this year? I am not even sure it is costing more, because grocers do put out their holiday sales, but it seems like (and it is a painful reality that) food prices generally are going higher.

  • McDonald's In Crisis, Dividend Growth At Risk  [View article]
    When I recently was in California, I tried a couple cheeseburgers and fries at an upscale burger restaurant. I believe this chain is truly trying to elevate the burger to new heights with its many distinctive and deluxe kinds of burgers. I very seldom go out to eat when I am home. And while I was away, I didn't mind paying 2 - 3 times more for a burger thinking it might be great. At the end of the day, however, all I can say is I like McDonald's way better. So for me, price-wise and taste-wise,McDonalds' stands the test of time and holds more than its own; so I will still eat there (occasionally) and will stay long on the stock as well.

  • Fed minutes show concerns that "considerable time" could be misunderstood  [View news story]
    Is it all just a sad coincidence or are all the financial systems conspiring together? Who are the madmen who have orchestrated the world's finances? It seems like the world, with few exceptions, is in a sad and depressing financial state with people in charge putting on bandaid after bandaid without healing what's broken.

  • Global sales disappoint for McDonald's in August  [View news story]
    I rarely eat "fast food," but when I do, I almost always choose McDonald's. I love their fries and burgers and think their menu variety is also appealing. Point being that when I was a kid, my parents would take my sisters and me there, and today, x many years later, I still like to eat at McDonald's. I own stock in McD's as well, because I believe in the company. Maybe I will regret hanging onto the stock, but I think they will figure it out and survive, and I am buying more, yes, MORE!!!
