  • Apple And Me: Why I Finally Bought Some Apple Shares [View article]
    Enjoyed this piece. Have always bought Dells, and Dell stock, which I did make money on, although not that much. After years of ignoring AAPL, I finally smartened up and bought a few shares. I bought low. Now they are much higher. With a dividend. Whoopee. Soon will be dumping eBay (no dividend) for more AAPL.

    Prefer AWK but also have a smaller stake in WTR, which The Street rates as a buy.

    I'm sticking with PM as well. Much ado about not much laced with a whole lot of blather.

    Am also long T, VZ and (to a lesser extent) CTL. Love those dividends. They beat bonds and many alternatives.

  • eBay: Quality At A Very Attractive Entry Point [View article]
    Agree with your assessment. I'm a long-term hold. Cut back on position late last year and bought AAPL below 490, and am I every pleased with that move. At least Apple has a dividend. I'm long and above water on remaining eBay position, but would be much happier with a dividend to show for holding.

    Are you a medical doctor, as in M.D.? If not, to be clear, why not use your name, followed by PhD?

  • General Electric: Panoply Of Positives Loom For Dividend Investors [View article]
    Yes, the investor has less control with Berkshire. Granted, Buffett's team does well for us, but my GE holdings are larger precisely because of yourpoint. I take GE dividends to invest in other opportunities.

  • 12 Dividend Machines Raising Distributions For Investors [View article]
    No need to apologize for anything, Strike. I thought the half-assed response to your earlier comment was the mark of an amateur. Therefore I'm discounting much, if not all, material presented in original article.

    Before reading the comments, what caught my eye as iffy at best was the recommendation to buy IBM on "dips below $176." Dream on.

    Have long been long on GE (even through the 2008 crisis) and now am adding to position at every opportunity. Upside potential enormous and restoration of dividend to previous levels likely soon.

    Altough I have Berkshire Baby B shares, I far prefer increasing my GE holdings.
