  • U.S. Tobacco Industry Suffers Slow Death: Altria Trading At Premium Despite Major Headwinds [View article]
    Agree. We have heard these cries of doom for decades, yet all MO does is move up on the ladder from left to right, and continuing increasing the dividends.

  • Reconsidering REITs As An Investment In Today's Environment [View article]
    REITs should become more heavily traded by next year since beginning in September of 2016 they will be removed from the Financial sector to a new Real Estate sector. By this time next year, institutions should begin considering adding REITs to their portfolios so as to be diversified through all sectors, if their REIT exposure is limited or nonexistent. Something to keep in mind.

  • Why I'm Thinking About Selling Realty Income, And Buying Chevron With The Proceeds [View article]
    When you purchased O in December 2013, the 10-year rate was close to 3%. It will be quite some time before we see that rate again, especially since rates will continue to fall as we get further into 2015. So, while there may be minor corrections in the months ahead, I would not be selling O at this time. Yields are falling for just about all stocks, save energy related ones.

    You must be an expert on LINE, LNCO and SDRL, since that is all you seem to comment about.

  • Phillip Morris Vs. Altria Group Continues To Track The Dollar [View article]
    Well, interest rates will continue to go lower for most of this year, not higher. The only time MO fell like a stone in the last 15 years was during the great recession. Several high profile commenters/contributors who sold some of their MO position about two months ago in the upper $40's must be lamenting the loss of an additional 10% appreciation to go along with a healthy dividend. But maybe they did better in where they put their sale proceeds, such as REITS, which have done well of late.

  • Senate Republicans block amendments to Keystone bill [View news story]
    Ted Bear- To be fair and balanced:

    Billionaire currency trader George Soros stands as liberal version of the Koch brothers. He is similarly outspoken in his political views and his willingness to spend money on the electoral process. His political activity in the United States also dates to 2004. That year he called the effort to defeat President George W. Bush “a matter of life and death” and that he would give up his entire fortune if it would guarantee Bush’s defeat. He was one of the founders of the Center for American Progress, a liberal PAC, and supports many liberal and progressive organizations through his Open Society Foundation.

    His more recent political activity has included contributions to President Barack Obama’s reelection campaign in 2012 as well as a donation to a group that is seeking Hillary Rodham Clinton’s nomination for the presidential election in 2016. It is expected that Soros’ contributions to liberal PAC’s and Senate campaigns will be essential for those groups to offset the influence of conservatives such as the Koch brothers. This would be in keeping with Soros’ history as he has a record of significant contributions to not only the Center for American Progress but other advocacy groups such as MoveOn.org as well as the Democratic National Committee.

  • Oil the big macro theme at Barron's Roundtable [View news story]
    Many gas stations sell lottery tickets. Perhaps the states will be a beneficiary of the savings from lower gas prices through increased ticket sales. They still get the same gas tax per gallon, no matter the price. What a deal!

    Do you know if the transport companies have eliminated their surcharges now that prices have fallen 50-60%? My guess is that most of them haven't, and that being the case, you are correct in saying they won't benefit much, if at all, once they do eliminate the surcharges.

    Good points, hawk. Also, for a company like Schlumberger, a leader in its field, to lay off 9,000 employees certainly gives other companies pause and precedent to do the same.
