  • Why I'm Reiterating Income Investors Buy Consolidated Edison Instead Of Southern Company [View article]
    Who competes with SO? Are they a better company in the same market?
    Can SO lose the majority of their customers to another energy company? As long as they can pay their debts, they should be good income for people that want income and not growth.

  • Amazon pushes deeper into consumables [View news story]
    I don't see any of Amazon's sales stripping Walmart, Target, or Walgreen.
    Why didn't you mention Costco? The majority of U.S. residents live close to
    all the stores you mentioned. Why would they pay for shipping and wait for
    an item to come to their door, when they could just spend a little time going to the store?
    Not only that, a lot of people enjoy shopping. The retailers mentioned have very competitive pricing, too.

  • ConocoPhillips - Time To Buy [View article]
    I will believe our oil industry is on the mend, when the prices of oil reach $70 again.
    And that will not be until 2016.

  • ConocoPhillips - Time To Buy [View article]
    OPEC is not going to cut oil production anytime soon. Back in the beginning of the this year, they said they wanted the small oil players in the U.S out of the business. So to get them, they pledged to keep up with oil production even at a loss. They also wanted to keep their place secure in oil market production. The Arabs have very deep pockets and apparently they feel it is worth the risk. And it just maybe working.

  • AT&T: Why Its New Acquisition Makes Sense? [View article]
    The talk about the Direct TV purchase is that AT&T will increase their free cash flow, but how long will that last? Their services have never been cheap. Can they offer a low enough price to induce subscribers to jump ship and go with what they can offer? Netflix and Amazon currently offer great streaming for under $10 a month where I live in California. And if someone can figure out how to get local news on streaming for a low price, how will AT&T compete with that? And I'm not to thrilled that my internet connection with them has gone up almost $6 a month in less than two years. But I'm still long with T, I've been a shareholder for almost 10 years.

  • McDonald's: Thoughts On 'All-Day' Breakfast [View article]
    I feel the $1 move on drinks was a clever business move, especially with soda.
    Pepsi and Coke are getting clobbered all over the country with special taxes on their soda products because of health concerns, now. So that lower price I feel is an extra enticement towards a purchase on McDonald's part.

  • Altria: It Turns Out The SABMiller Rumors Were True [View article]
    It would surprise me if Ab would be willing to give Mo shares only for the sale. But it is a great bargaining chip for MO to ask for shares only. It's great to be a shareholder of MO, now.

  • 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.
