  • 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.

  • Icahn hikes Apple target to $240, sees FY16 EPS of $12 [View news story]
    Exactly... Carl was good for shareholders of Clorox and other companies. He's a positive for Apple as well. I'm in line behind you on his coattails.

  • Apple To $140 By End Of May: It's A Mathematical Problem [View article]
    Own bulk of Apple pre-split, devoting dividends from it and other divy payers to building position since then ... and have achieved year-end goal in terms of shares. Will continue to buy under $130 as cash becomes available. $140 by month's end would be nice, but I'm in no hurry, since I'd like more shares in the personal pot.

  • Duke Energy - Lofty Valuations, Deteriorating Fundamentals [View article]

    You lost me at "firstly" ...

    adv.
    1530s, but never a common word (simple first usually serving in its place), from first + -ly (2).

  • Apple Hit By Ongoing Disaster At Sharp [View article]
    "But another, bigger disaster stock story is happening in Japan, one that might just be biting Apple (NASDAQ:AAPL) in the bottom line, hard."

    In a word .... NO.

    "Might just be"? A weasal phrase that doesn't work to offset such a ludicrous premise.

  • Apple Hit By Ongoing Disaster At Sharp [View article]
    Agree ... to say "Apple Hit ... " is wrong choice of words for headline, when it's the Apple supplier that has posted losses. Screamer headline about nothing.

  • I Closed My WhiteWave Position And Bought Carnival Corporation In My Growth Portfolio [View article]
    Check your facts, Bingo 2 before making such a silly remark. Carnival Corporation has a balance sheet far superior to RCCL or Norgwegian and has for decades. Besides Carnival, its brands include Cunard, Princess, P&O, Costa, Holland America, Seabourn and more. A wide range of product within a huge fleet, with more ships on order.
