  • Decision Made... Philip Morris > Lorillard [View article]
    Don't think you'll be disappointed in PM. Over the long haul those dividends add up. Also take a look at MO.

  • Apple Should Buy Vessel [View article]
    As I said , am simply amazed Tim Cook has not contacted the author for his views on what Apple should be doing.

    I have U-verse which has its plusses and minuses. When signal goes, you're dead in the water for everything ... TV, Landline and Internet. Agree cable is on its way out. I look forward to Apple innovating further on this entire scene.

    Be happy your comment wasn't deleted. I stated that I "was amazed Tim Cook hadn't contacted" the author "for his views" and promptly got deleted. One sentence. That's all I said.

    Yes, and the moderator is busily deleting even the blandest of comments on this piece -- which speaks for itself .

    Outstanding article ... for a variety of obvious reasons.

    1 -- Tipper At least your comment wasn't deleted. I remarked that I was amazed Tim Cook hadn't contacted the author for his views (one sentence and that's all I said) and promptly got a delete notice talking about personal attacks. Yes, personal attacks. Now that's even more amazing.

    I speak as a long-time Apple shareholder who added to position yesterday.

    It's amazing that Tim Cook hasn't called you for advice!

  • Why It Might Be Time To Take Some Apple Profits [View article]
    Agree. Just took some big IRA profit today in KRFT , waiting for AAPL to drop a couple more points, then plowing in for more of that. Good thing about trading a Roth IRA is avoiding the tax hit.

  • Kraft Foods, H.J. Heinz Merger To Drive Significant Potential Synergy And Dividend Growth Opportunities [View article]
    Perhaps I missed it, but when is the special dividend payable? And to shareholders of record as of when? Are folks who took profit and sold today out of luck on special dividend?

    (Am still KRFT in a taxable account, but took profit on KRFT in IRA.)

  • Today's Market: 2 Merger And Acquisition Deals, Earnings And Other News [View article]
    Quick question, anybody: When will KRFT shareholders get the special $16.50 dividend, based on yesterday's closing price?

    Will shareholders who did quick profit taking today miss out on that, even though technically they are still shareholders of record until settled?

    My Kraft goes back to days of a spinoff from pre-split PM/MO ... sold some of it today at 86. Looking forward to enjoying merger fruits with the rest.

  • General Electric Dividend Provides Me The Comfort I Need To Own The Stock [View article]
    My view exactly. Despite all the misplaced adulation, Jack Welch was an inferior CEO. And a lousy husband, as he carried on with that skank Wetlaufer.

  • Portfolio Construction In The Utility Sector [View article]
    A good read. Am long DUK, WTR, AWK, as well as a Fidelity utility fund. Don't trade them, just own them, adding to positions on dips. Appreciate the dividends.

    Mad Dog Jim Cramer sez don't trade Apple .... OWN it. I agree. Picking up on dips, like now.
