  • Dividend Stocks Are Not In A Bubble, But Many Of Them Are Pricey [View article]
    Mike- "As to The Rebel's question: "Just how many dividend stocks didn't survive the Great Recession?"

    The answer is almost all..."

    I don't think that's what you meant to say.

    If David had wanted to stack the deck, he could have chosen all 48 stocks from the current list of Dividend Champions. Instead, he chose the portfolio presented in an article by another author. Just how many dividend stocks didn't survive the Great Recession?

    You make it sound as though rates have never risen in the past. Well, they obviously have, and dividend stocks overall performed quite nicely then, thank you.

    Dividend stocks come from a myriad of industries, some of which may be hurt by rising rates more than others. That is why you have a diversified portfolio.

    Interesting scoring system. I notice that 4 of the 6 undervalued stocks were in the oil industry, which has been the hardest hit group of late.

  • Update: American Realty Capital Properties - Filing Issues Not Going To Help The Stock [View article]
    Seeking Alpha should be ashamed of itself for permitting article after article to regurgitate the same information, whether it be ARCP, SDRL, LINE, or others. SA is losing credibility by the day and will soon be losing subscribers. Your editing department needs a complete overhaul.

    I think the drop can be traced to this article, which was originally published around 8:30 AM today:

  • American Realty Capital Properties To Delay Reporting Q3 2014 Results [View article]
    What you say about "spinning" may be true, but it is also true that the company will have lower capital needs as their spending spree days won't be returning any time soon.

  • Senate fails to approve Keystone XL pipeline [View news story]
    It's funny, but I never hear people complaining about the biased choice of words used every day by the likes of the AP, CNN, MSNBC and the alphabet networks.

    Sounds to me like some people here didn't like the outcome of the vote tonight, and just wanted to lash out to alleviate their frustrations.

  • S&P 500: Generational Opportunity In The Making [View article]
    Sorry to disappoint, but as Doug Kass pointed out in March, 2009, that was the generational low. Unless the meaning of "generational" has changed in the last 5 years, I don't expect to see a subsequent low anywhere near that one for at least the next 10-15 years. After many more years of the shorts having their heads handed to them, when they finally cry uncle then you will know we've reached the final peak again.

    Landrieu's chances in the runoff election before the vote were slim and none. They are now unimaginable.

  • Black Friday For The Underwater Drillers: Time For M&A [View article]
    "Seadrill's strong focus on maintaining dividend capacity and on modern assets clearly limits potential targets," the company said a couple of months ago. No secret there. Sounds to me like dividends come first.

  • Linn Energy: Strong Buy On This Ridiculous And Short-Sighted Sell-Off [View article]
    The new mantra for stocks that fall 30-50% is that dividend cuts are built into the price. lol

  • How To Profit This Holiday Season [View article]
    "...the price in the last week fell several dollars per share with no real bearish reason. $54 is a support level for Hasbro..."

    The reason it fell to just below $54 last week was due to the potential deal with DreamWorks, which has subsequently fallen apart. Just before the close last Friday, I added another 100 shares @ $54 for three reasons. First, it had declined about 8%, mostly due to the proposed deal. Second, because I felt that HAS was not going to overpay for DreamWorks. And third, the deal could have jeopardized their Disney relationship, which would have hurt HAS down the road, and so I felt that HAS would walk away, which they did.

    Glad to see HAS came to their senses. Should get a nice pop on Monday.

  • Paying Under 2 Times EBITDA For An Industry Leader [View article]
    Buffett is the acquirer and he can pay for the Duracell business however he wants. He is paying with marketable securities instead of cash. It's just that the securities happen to be those of the seller.

    It also helps move P&G's share repurchase program along when they retire those shares. That is cash saved that they would have laid out to repurchase shares.
