  • End Of Tesla, Or End Of Oil? [View article]
    Low oil prices are only temporary. OPEC has decided to punish American companies by providing normal oil production as oil prices drop because of over production.
    This way, the oil companies can not afford to continue fracking for oil. The costs are too expensive if oil is cheap. Will it work? OPEC thinks it will.

    TESLA makes an impressive car. Big money earners are always going to buy expensive toys.

  • Microsoft selling Nook stake to B&N, terminating agreement [View news story]
    Microsoft has a lot of restructuring to do. They have taken their share holders for granted, far too long. They are now feeling the pains of their consumers frustration.

  • Sprint offers to cut AT&T/Verizon subscriber bills in half [View news story]
    I could hardly switch to Sprint, especially since I own AT&T stock.
    Might as well shoot my self in the foot.

  • General Mills, Inc. Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    I have been a stock holder of General Mills for over 5 years and I certainly wouldn't recommend it as a buy, now. But I'm not going to throw in the towel, either.
    If your a young family and make just a little above minimum wage of $8.00 in California, then $4.02 with taxes for 18oz box of Cheerioes is expensive. According to Factank, minimum wage earners represent 4.3% of all the nations workers which in 2013 was 79.5 million hourly workers.
    I think the entire food industry is in for a rough ride for the next few years.

  • AT&T: Why Its New Acquisition Makes Sense? [View article]
    I think AT&T has too many irons in the fire at the moment.
    They are in a battle with the FCC over net neutrality and fines due to accusations of throttling bandwidth. A new expensive purchase of DIRECTV and now buying into Iusacell in Mexico.
    If I wasn't a current shareholder, I more than likely wouldn't buy into the company at its current business state. Long on AT&T for the moment.

  • Realty Income: Don't Reach For This Yield Play [View article]
    I missed the boat on O and invested in MAIN at $9.50 a share. But I'm not complaining it worked out for me. If O drops to Forty dollars, I would buy.

  • AT&T buying Mexican mobile carrier Iusacell for $2.5B [View news story]
    Does this acquisition require FTC approval? Whatever. They certainly are eager to try many things now. I hope they are not on a fishing expedition.
    If they are wrong about the market down South, this can be very costly to investors.

  • If You Are Holding AT&T Just For The Dividend, Sell Now [View article]
    I'm also worried about the new FCC charges "throttling data speeds", they lost a similar suit over DSL service in the earlier 2000's. If convicted, I don't think the FCC will be kind again with a low fine.

  • FTC sues AT&T for deceptive data throttling [View news story]
    It seems like they are up to old tricks, again. In the early 2000's they charged higher prices for higher speeds. But they failed to produce the higher speeds and got fined then.

  • Recent Buy: AT&T [View article]
    The Baby grew up? Well, how come Verizon didn't merge with this new AT&T? Bell Atlantic, which was a baby bell, acquired GTE in 2000 to become Verizon Communications. The old AT&T thought that land lines would rule forever. None of these companies are operating like AT&T did back in the early 1980's and before.

  • Recent Buy: AT&T [View article]
    Why does everybody that writes about AT&T cite 30 years of paying dividends?
    AT&T is dead. It just went downhill, because of a poor business model back in Jan 2005. So it was sold to SBC in 2005 for $16 billion and $6 billion in net debt.
    It hasn't even been a decade yet of dividend payments. This is a new AT&T which has no claim to the old company.

  • AT&T: An Unsung Income Growth Stock [View article]
    I think the concern of the FCC will be in the form of AT&T getting more control in the TV spectrum. They already have U-verse in place and the possibilities for AT&T if the deal goes through will be huge.

  • Is McDonald's The Burger For You? [View article]
    McDonald's is a good buy at $90 or below. The next dip in earnings report will get it there.
