  • The Big Picture Urges Caution In Stocks [View article]
    I have 2 stocks in different sectors both with Betas over 1 (1.2 and 1.5); I am overweight in one and up there with the other. Considering the economic environment we are in and the dismal outlook, I am thinking about selling off a portion of both to reduce my overall risk (though I am aware that has an inherent downside.) and thus to increase my cash position. Both companies are up YTD, so I would be selling high (though not highest).decisions...d... Yeah, I inched out of my comfort zone and bought a small position in SH just to get a feel for it, and it seems to be working well so far. @untrusting investor and skiz: thanks so much for your thoughtful advice. (I assume it was for me.) I appreciate your wisdom.

  • Medtronic (MDT) boosts its quarterly cash dividend by 7% to $0.26 per share. The company's dividend has more than doubled over the past five years, and today's announcement marks the company's 35th consecutive year of increased dividend payments.  [View news story]
    Just for the heck of it, I checked MDT's div. history; YF shows the first dividend was paid out in Jan. 1982 and was .00219; stayed the same the next quarter; then increased to .0025 in July 1982. LOL

    I go to Yahoo Finance and to a stock I want to look up; and to the left, under "Historical Prices," you can click on to see prices and/or dividends. If I recall corrrectly, you can view the stock price either per month or year by year, and you can choose to get a complete history of the dividends paid out, too. And, yeah, some of them increase in very small increments (like I have seen $.17 then $.175) while some stay the same for varying periods of time or increase, then decrease. This may or may not answer Kilborn's question.

  • Silver, Copper, Gold... And China [View article]
    This China thread is really, really interesting. Thanks for all the comments.

    I did want to inject, however, that in lieu of, or in addition to, holding a copper ETF, there are reputable places where one can purchase copper coins, bars, and so on. I just purchased several 1 oz. copper bars, which are .999 copper and are beautiful and relatively inexpensive.

  • The Fed's 'Twist' And The U.S. Economic Outlook [View article]
    Those statistics are sobering. Because of their bad policies, financial irresponsibility, and obfuscating politcal self-interest, Washington powerbrokers will see their power run like sand through their hands as the lifeblood of America seeps out of its self-inflicted, gaping wound. of debt and insolvency. Sad..

  • Procter & Gamble's (PG -3%) weakness is not a buying opportunity, says Morgan Stanley, noting the company's new guidance isn't conservative enough given its lack of repurchases, higher pension expense, and negative FX considerations. The firm maintains its Equal Weight rating.  [View news story]
    If PG weakness is not a buying opportunity, then do those of us who are long PG hold our position or sell? what's the good word out there?

  • Silver, Copper, Gold... And China [View article]
    I have one small position in a Chinese company - GSH; other than that, no. I agree with the position you take in this article. I am wondering if you are also invested in various oil companies.

    Would you say acquiring a position in DBV could also be a prudent move as a hedge against a declining dollar?
