  • Altria: Back In The Saddle Again [View article]
    Rolled a 401K into IRA several years ago and bought MO prior to spinoffs. Still hold those shares and have added a few to boot in other accounts. Have never been sorry. Plan to buy more MO if it moves a tad lower, and a little more PM. Hope MDLZ goes the way of KRFT. Go MO.

  • AT&T, Staying With Big Because It Is Big [View article]
    Have long been long on T, and therefore my dividends on investment are higher than 5.4%. An index fund instead? No thanks. And, as someone -- hqclark, I think -- said earlier, "if, if, if" ...

  • Apple: May Has Come And Gone And No $140; Where We Stand [View article]
    $140? Not disappointed. The longer Apple hovers under or near $130 the more shares I can acquire with dividends from other positions and cash throw-offs from tax-free bonds. Sooner or later Apple will take off as per Ichan.

  • How The Big Money Cashes In On Merck [View article]
    Thanks for timely assessment. Am long on MRK as part of my "pharma" component" although it's not one of my biggest positions overall. Looks like it might be time to beef up.

  • Philip Morris: What's The 2015 Dividend Raise? [View article]
    Bill, as Judge Judy frequently tells defendants, "'a couple' means two."

    TWO.

    Not three. And definitely not four.

  • E-Cigs May Be Just What The Doctor Ordered For Your Retirement Portfolio [View article]
    Enjoyed the humor along with the logic in this piece, just as I have the growth and dividends of MO, PM and the spinoffs.

  • Altria: What Will Be The 2015 Dividend Raise? [View article]
    Same here ... it's been up, up, up with MO, PM and the spinoffs. KRFT was the most recent bonanza. Always adding to both MO and PM on dips.

  • Investing In American Campus Could Make You Smarter [View article]
    Insightful report. Have been long ACC almost from the beginning, even through tumultious 2008, and have been well rewarded.

    Some folks own apartment/condo units in campus towns and deal with the aggravation of renting to students, which translates to frequent turnover, heavy wear and tear. I say let ACC handle it and collect those dividends.

  • A Critique Of Carl Icahn's Apple Fair Value Revaluation To $240 Per Share [View article]
    Carl's billions are a leading indicator that he knows how to call 'em. I've not seen any indication that he's pumping to dump. Cramer makes a point of urging ownership of Apple -- own, don't trade, he says. Am long for several years pre-split. Just wish I owned more with the bucks I lost with Bank of America and Washington Mutual.
