  • Coca-Cola Is A Top-Notch Dividend Stock [View article]
    KO holds about 8% NAV weight in our portfolio. Just can't bring myself to buy more right now. If it hits $36 though, I just might not be able to resist adding a bit.

  • Sell National Oilwell Varco Into Earnings [View article]
    The way I understand it, the Saudi's can't make money on oil at this price level. So, I guess it's the old joke about losing money on something but making up for it on volume.

  • Not everyone buying Microsoft - Goldman reiterates Sell rating [View news story]
    My wife and I acquired our first ever smartphones a week ago. We use Verizon and stick with them because we like their service. It just works for us the way we want it to. I very much wanted to go with Windows phones but the selection just isn't there. I was told that Verizon wasn't going to sell the newest Microsoft phones.

    I let my wife pick between Androids or iPhones in that I didn't really have a preference. Even though she uses an iPad daily, she wanted the Galaxy S5. Go figure. I'm hoping that some good Win phones are available by the time we need to replace our current phones. We are a Windows household for the most part. It just seems like a good Win phone would be a better fit.

    I do like the direction that Microsoft is taking and am long on their stock in a small way. Even if I can't buy the phone I want, I do want to buy more of their stock when the price seems more reasonable.

    I tend to agree that personal political bias and viewpoints have no place in SA articles.

  • Irrational Exuberance: 3M Edition [View article]
    I would be happy to start buying at mid $130's. Thought it was going to get there, but never quite did. Probably should have grabbed a few shares when it dropped below $140.

  • Our 'Dividend House' DGI Portfolio Review: Time For Renovations? [View article]
    First, allow me to say that I loved the article. Your detail is excellent and the graphics do a great job representing your methods.

    I feel the same way about bonds. I have a very small amount in short bond ETF's but have no desire to purchase more. I would rather hold cash until I can find a decent price on more dividend payers. Speaking of SS, I get my first check in early December. That will be part of our fixed income, with no need to worry about interest rates. Thanks for the article.

    Exactly. Obviously, the comment by GS was completely ignored by the market today. Up over 10%.

  • Microsoft: I Love The New Products, But As A Dividend Growth Investor I Cannot Buy The Stock [View article]
    Agreed, Cape. I bought a little earlier this year for around $41. That remains as my buy price if I decide I want a little more.

  • Looking For An Attractive Dividend Aristocrat? Meet Emerson Electric [View article]
    Perhaps I misunderstand you, but it sounds like you are talking about selling the stock and buying it right back again. If that's the case, it would only generate a commission expense for you.

    Or, are you are talking about taking a tax loss and waiting 30 days to buy again?

  • AT&T slips to session low, saying consensus for Q3 'inflated' [View news story]
    I have a pretty large T holding already. If it drops below $30, it will be getting larger.

  • Coca-Cola beats by $0.01, misses on revenue [View news story]
    Down to $30?? Tell you what.... watching me dance is not a pretty sight at all. However, if KO drops to $30, I will be buying big time and doing a happy dance.

  • McDonald's All-Day Breakfast: Initial Success Will Be Overshadowed By Long-Term Despair [View article]
    I am contemplating the claim of "all day breakfast" versus the reality of the situation. How many customers will be disenchanted when they find out the breakfast items are very limited?

    I don't know about the overall picture, but on a local level the all day breakfast offers only about 3 items. Those would be the burrito, the sausage muffin (with or without egg) and the egg mcmuffin. It may depend on each store's layout, but our local stores don't seem to have the capacity they need to offer much of a selection. I also don't think that the 3 items being offered will satisfy the majority of those wanting breakfast food.

  • McDonald's All-Day Breakfast: Initial Success Will Be Overshadowed By Long-Term Despair [View article]
    Interesting. Our local Mickey's don't offer anything involving biscuits during the day. They have burritos and they have muffin/sausage sandwiches.... and that's it.

  • Is The McDonald's Disaster Getting Worse? [View article]
    With the small-ish increases as of late, the next increase should be telling as to corporate's outlook.
