    Agreed ... simply a scare headline to generate clicks.

  • Carnival's (CCL) CEO Arnold Donald on Q2 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    It's been a few years since the dividend cut, and the 25-center has been in place for a while. When's the next dividend hike?

  • Taylor Swift > Apple [View article]
    You have to wonder who the dunderhead at Apple was who thought just because they were giving away a taste that musical artists should surrender their chance at a bite. Bravo for Taylor and her remarkably Swift Justice.

    P.S. Am long Apple.

  • IBM's Return On Equity And Sustainable Growth [View article]
    First bought IBM in early '90s. That became a five-bagger. Took half
    off the table for MO. Still have a decent stake in IBM, and plan to keep. Don't ever underestimate Big Blue.

  • 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.

    Enjoyed the humor along with the logic in this piece, just as I have the growth and dividends of MO, PM and the spinoffs.
