  • Don't Mess With Texas: Weingarten Is Ripe For Rewards [View article]
    Hmmm, I haven't seen any mention of WRI in any articles I read since last comment however in Brad's last newsletter it is listed as a "hold" so guess it aint nothin special.

  • Tech Is Dead...for Now: What Carl Icahn Is Telling The Market [View instapost]
    I'm sure that "deep value" is why Icahn is moving into energy and I have to admit I doubled down on BP Thursday. I bought BP when I thought the bottom was almost in for the energy sector but I was too early and was underwater 10% before I added more by doubling down.
    I guess the point to my ramble is that I am still nervous about energy. From what I read nothing much has happened since price of oil was sub 40's except that Venezuela has called for an emergency meeting of OPEC, that might not even happen.

  • Tech Is Dead...for Now: What Carl Icahn Is Telling The Market [View instapost]
    Somebody bought energy stocks last week so Icahn isn't alone in thinking there is money to be made in the sector. Dead-cat bounce or new sector rotation is the question?

  • Oil skies 10% as Venezuela reportedly asks for emergency OPEC meeting [View news story]
    Michael Cutler I lived in the KSA for three years, 2 years on the West coast and a year on the East coast. I don't claim to be an authority on the Kingdom however I do think that there will never be any "fundamental changes", what ever happens is accepted as "God's will" and embraced or endured. The population will not riot when and if ever they are subjected to hardship.

  • Navigating Water ETFs [View article]
    Interesting how water stocks get 'no love'. I am the first to comment on this article and as I look for articles about investing in water I see only a few and like this article only have a few comments. In my mind investing in water should be lucrative but it hasn't been. Like most commodities there is a finite amount and this amount is more important than any other commodities but the price of these funds have languished. I haven't looked but I suppose some of the individual companies have done well and the ones that didn't do well did poorly so the funds holding them doesn't have much price movement?

  • Breaking Bad [View article]
    Thanks for the article, it aggravates me so much to learn about the ITGs of the world, are they just the 'tip of the iceberg' - I think so.

  • Get Your Smart Beta Here! Dividend Growth Stocks As 'Strategic Beta' Investments [View article]
    taken from an article at Yahoo finance:
    Here are some examples of index-based ETFs that are, and are not, true “smart beta:”

    • GuggenheimS&P 500 Equal Weight ETF RSP, -2.57% is not because while the weighting is different it is composed of the same stocks that are in the regular S&P 500 SPX, -2.89% .

    • PowerShares FTSE RAFI US 1000 Portfolio PRF, -2.59% qualifies because its stocks are selected and weighted based on four fundamental measures: book value, cash flow, sales and dividends.

    • iShares Select Dividend DVY, -1.80% is “smart beta” because its stocks are selected based on sustained dividend payments and are weighted by the size of the dividend payouts relative to other index components.

    • Schwab US Dividend Equity SCHD, -2.60% doesn’t qualify because its components — selected by 10-year dividend histories and stringent financial ratios—are market-cap weighted.

  • What Apple Watch? Evaluating Fitbit After Q2 [View article]
    CG thanks for the article. I guess the question in my mind is "just how many people in an obese society will make that kind of purchase since their commitment to health is highly questionable". Fad diets are just that - fads which come and go. Not only does the single use Fitbit basically have but one function but there is a monthly expense of around $30 for the pads, that's more than the cost of a case of beer and some potato chips for Monday night football (I am assuming Monday night football is still around - but I'm sure you get the point)
