  • Apple: Thanks For The Stock Boost; Now How Bout More Cash? [View article]
    Hey, a good solid readable case for what many of us longs would like to see. You've gathered the facts and made a coherent argument for reversing cash hoarder perceptions.

    Frankly, I'm not expecting any more than a quarterly jump from .47 to .51.

    Who among us would not like to be proved wrong on that count? ... Here's hoping.

    I have a small position in VZ as a hedge, and eight times as much in T, adding regularly. Bullish on Latin American growth.

  • AT&T Clearance Sale Going On Now [View article]
    Insightful piece, insightful comments. Have been building T position, based on appetite for the dividend. But now (based on this) must take a serious look at dumping ORAN for DTV, despite lack of dividend. Thoughts?

  • Johnson & Johnson: Coiling To Jump On The Analyst Catalyst? [View article]
    Most JNJ shareholders aren't day traders ... they are long-term buy and holders. Hence less volatility. Always.

  • AT&T: A Rare, Post-Recession Buying Opportunity [View article]
    Dividends, and then dividend increases. If you paid $1,000 for a set number of shares five years ago, you've enjoyed dividend hikes since then on those shares, increasing rate of return on your purchase. Share growth is an added bonus. If you'd put that $1,000 in a money market five years ago, you'd be nowhere clpse.

  • AT&T's Gaudy Dividend Keeps Me Interested In The Stock [View article]
    In IRA , I trimmed back on CCL north of 48 a week or so ago, bought more than double the number of shares of T this morning at 32.70. (Got greedy last week and T didn't go low enough for my buy order.) With "gaudy" T divy and other dividends, I'll rebuild CCL to previous level this summer when it's likely to dip.

  • Dumping Apple Makes Sense For Immediate Income Growth [View article]
    You could do a lot worse than Apple with its dividend -- take ebay with NO dividend, for example. Still, your purchase of T makes sense.

    If you've got a Roth in addition to your regular IRA, get some Apple in there and let it happily grow over time. Meanwhile, use your T dividends to start building another aapl position in your IRA. Good luck.
