  • General Dynamics beats by $0.16, beats on revenues [View news story]
    If the EPS beats expectations, and revenue beats by .02B, why is GD down? because of the -1.7% Y/Y? What is the significance of negative Combat Systems sales? especially in the context of the other segments doing well?

  • Altria: Accumulate This Cash Cow And Enjoy A 5.5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    Jargon, I see your point, and it is an interesting and compelling one. Food companies do similar kinds of advertising as well - Doesn't matter if it's McDonalds' or Peanut Butter Cups or Lay's Potato Chips. Yeah, and sugar is addictive, and nicotine is addictive, and, yeah, I have fallen prey to the seductions of advertising, but in the end and ultimately the advertising has had a minimal effect on my decisions about my health and life. Maybe that is the exception, not the rule. I don't know; or maybe I have lived long enough to acquire some objectivity as well as be strong as a person apart from a peer group. Thank-you for your comments.

    It's like foot ball players who get hurt playing the game then sue the NFL - as if they weren't fully informed and aware of the risks of playing the game from the get-go. cigarette companies should not be held liable for the diseases people get when they smoke. There is no excuse for being ignorant or uninformed about the dangers of smoking. Don't blame the cigarette company because you sucked in 2 packs a day.

  • General Dynamics Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    In my experience GD does not reinvest dividends, and when I tried to buy more shares via the transfer agent (Computershare), they sent me my check back.

    It's painful to keep sounding the alarm when nobody seems to be listening.....I guess we could keep caring for the sake of our children....and their children...We are equipped with higher reasoning skills as well as the ability to discern right and wrong and make moral judgments...Why can't we change the world?...One person can do a lot to effect change....Don't give up.

    Have you read the transcripts of or listened to any of the annual meetings to try to get to the bottom of it? Do you figure the company is intentionally obfuscating the facts?

    helpful info - didn't realize MO sold wine as well. exciting that it embraces diversification of products. To many wine is a staple, although it is considered a discretionary product. nice, easily understandable and readable article

    Do you think it should benefit from Obamacare? That's what I've read.

    Doesn't the seasonality of home building affect the numbers? For ex.,
