  • Seadrill Ltd. Collapses After Suspending Its Dividend [View article]
    Management IS supposed to be truthful. Reports can be optimistic but they are required to be accurate. Buyers losing their shirts have a right to be angry.

  • Seadrill Ltd. Collapses After Suspending Its Dividend [View article]
    I bought at $29 after reading all company reports. I don't need any losses for tax purposes so I'll just hold....and hope to live long enough to see recovery.

  • Seadrill Ltd. Collapses After Suspending Its Dividend [View article]
    Smart move. Friends advised against loading up on SDRL but I insisted it was a safe dividend--management said so. Investors on their own buy stocks based on what they read online, especially reports from management. I relied on their statements that the dividend was safe for at least another year.

    I haven't looked yet, but probably lost thousands already. I will join any class action lawsuit.

  • Who Will Manage The Family Portfolio When I Die? [View article]
    Thanks for writing this article! I admit to being a procrastinator but other than balancing his own check book monthly, my spouse is totally disinterested in our investments.

    Creating a simple list with contact information--just in case--is a great idea!

  • Recent Buy: BHP Billiton [View article]
    I am still confused: BHP vs. BBL
    Could you explain why BBL "is better for US citizens"? Would the UK not tax the dividends?

  • American Realty: What Investors Must Consider Now [View article]
    I agree, Rudester! We're talking about a few cents here and everyone is acting like the company can't survive!

    I'm holding my shares and very doubtful that anything will happen to the dividend.

  • Disaster Strikes For American Realty Capital Properties [View article]
    I agree. I have a good friend who worked in government for 25+ years who blew the whistle on upper management fraud in specific reports. He was fired. Try suing the feds.

    Well said! Heads should roll in Washington, DC but nothing has been done other than holding a few hearings! Many have lied under oath and yet no one has been fired or arrested!

    For a little (a few cents) "lie" on their records/reports, ARCP is now paying a huge price? Yes, it could have been planned deception, but compared to all the lies and deceiving going on in our government, this looks like child's play. Investors are overreacting, IMO, and I will add to my position.

    Finally some common sense here! These were small errors albeit against the rules. I cannot believe these errors can crush the company in any way other than driving the stock price down--temporarily. I am long ARCP and will add to my position when I think the bottom has been reached.

    Like others who are long VNR, I loaded up as the price dropped. Thanks for the reassuring report.

  • When To Sell [View article]
    Thanks, Westfool ! My reply was re: your comment on where Belgium got all that money. The "gift" from the feds was used to prop up the dollar.

  • A Critical Week Ahead For Investors [View article]
    Sure hope the CPC predictions are more correct than the Farmers Almanac! The latter predicts a worse winter than the last one! I'm not looking forward to shoveling snow....
