  • Altria Group: Firing On All Cylinders [View article]
    Not a smoker or drinker. Bought 100 shares in 1992 and never sold and reinvested the dividends. Will continue to hold and never sell.

  • Norfolk Southern's Coal Woes Likely To Continue [View article]
    Another example of not understanding the railroad business. Norfolk Southern transports much more than crude oil and coal. The loss in revenue has been offset by increases in other commoditises and should continue to increase as U.S. and world consumers demand for products continues to increase. Long NSC and UP.

  • Why I Trimmed My Position In Altria [View article]
    Sell MO, you're kidding right? I bought 1,000 shares in 1992 and haven't touched them. Let's just say I'll be retiring comfortably in 2017.

    NSC has run up strong over the past year. I wouldn't buy at this level but would hold what I have.

  • Norfolk Southern: Riding The Rails To A More Profitable Tomorrow [View article]
    I'd be careful here. I think 1Q for the rails is going to be tough given all of the weather events that will increase there costs and operations. I'd wait for a pull-back

  • Jim Cramer Sells Linn Energy, So You Can Be Sure I Am Going To Buy [View article]
    Cramers a tool. First he's in LINE, then he's out. Then he's back in, now he's out again. Clearly a trader, NOT an investor.

    Long LINE since 2009!

  • Cramer Dumps Linn, Should You? [View article]
    Remeber, Cramer is a trader, not an investor. Been long LINE since 2010 and will continue to be long. Everytime I listened to Cramer I lost.
