    CRAMER LOVES FORD:

    Ford (NYSE:F): It's fine as it yields 5%. The auto sector peaking news is overdone.

  • BP Prudhoe Bay Trust: Potential 38-60% Imminent Cut To Dividend, Worth 67% Less Than Current Price  [View article]
    We always expected that BPT, a royalty trust with extremely favorable tax features, would be limited as are all oil royalty trusts.

    We have received our original investment in BPT back, MANY TIMES OVER, along with extremely handsome distributions each of which very often was larger than the original investment.

    WE LOVE BPT AND IT HAS BEEN AN OUTSTANDING INVESTMENT FOR US.

    Thank you for your comments.

    Mike Slattery:

    We can only assume that "Financial Dave" was being facetious because, otherwise, his logic is completely ridiculous.

    Of course, Mike, your logic is excellent and accurate.

    We have made so much money on BPT over the years that all of this is nonsense.

    We are investors, not speculators or traders, and our investment in BPT has been returned manifold.

    We hope oil prices continue to rise but, even if the do not, BPT has always been an amazing holding for us and, even now, our profits are very substantial.

    We hope that y'all do as well with BPT as we, as investors, have done over many years.

    Good luck.

    BPT keeps moving up with the price of oil...

    Could it be that the doomsayers are dead wrong?

    We believe that is the case!

  • Frontier Investors Would Be Wise To Forget The High Yield And Sell The Stock  [View article]
    SILLY ARTICLE!

    FTR DOES NOT COMPETE WITH AT&T OR VZ OR ANY OTHER TELECOMMUNICATIONS CARRIER!

    FTR is exclusive in their areas of coverage, mainly rural and suburban, most of which they have acquired from purchasing rural and suburban assets from VZ & AT&T.

    FTR is subsidized by the US government to provide internet service to previously underserved areas.

    FTR is growing by leaps and bounds and currently pays a better than 8%+ shareholder dividend.

    FTR is a marvelous, expanding telecommunications giant, VERY SECURE, and very shareholder oriented.

    BUY FTR for excellent income and capital gains.

    A GREAT DEAL of the very high dividend income from VGR, more than 50%, is TAX FREE to shareholders.

    NEVER ARGUE WITH SUCCESS!

    Judging by the steadily rising stock price, GE IS A DISTINCT WINNER!

    France is a brave country under attack by murderous Muslim murderers and hatred of France or its people is EXTRAORDINARILY WRONG IN THIS AGE!

    BUY GE FOR GREAT GUARANTEED INCOME AND OUTSTANDING CAPITAL GAINS.

    GE is the world leader in innovation and shareholder orientation.

  • Frontier Communications: A Dividend Powerhouse With 1 Substantial Concern  [View article]
    We did not know that you were referring to FTR bonds, which are not UNSECURED.

    Buy the bonds but we prefer FTR!

    IMHO, Cary Judashko, your opinion is very, very STRANGE!

    UNSECURED BONDS are junk bonds that very likely will never be redeemed or paid off.

    FTR shareholders continue to be very handsomely rewarded for investing in this very fast growing American telecommunications and rural internet giant.

    BUY FTR FOR EXCELLENT INCOME AND GROWTH.

  • Frontier Communications +2.4% as California wireline purchase moves ahead  [View news story]
    BUY FTR - Expect a sharp rise in the stock price of FRONTIER (FTR)

    Frontier Communications (FTR) Announces Favorable Decision in Verizon Wireless Asset Acquisition Deal
    8:02 AM ET, 11/09/2015 - StreetInsider

    BUY FTR - Expect a sharp rise in the stock price of FRONTIER (FTR)

    Frontier Communications (NASDAQ: FTR) announced that on Friday, November 6, 2015 Administrative Law Judge Karl J. Bemesderfer with the California Public Utilities Commission (CPUC) issued a favorable Proposed Decision (PD) proposing approval of Frontier s proposed acquisition of Verizon's local wireline, broadband and video operations, including the FiOS network. The company has already received all other necessary regulatory approvals, including from the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Justice Department. Frontier Communications along with other parties will be filing comments on the PD by November 20, 2015. Pending final CPUC approval in California, Frontier expects to close the transaction at the end of the first quarter of 2016.
    Kathleen Abernathy, EVP, External Affairs, Frontier Communications said, We are pleased that the PD finds that our proposed settlements with the Office of Ratepayer Advocates (ORA), TURN and Center for Accessible Technology, California Emerging Technology Fund, Greenlining, and others address the public interest requirements to be considered by the Commission. The Public Participation Hearings conducted this summer by Commissioner Catherine Sandoval and Judge Bemesderfer informed these agreements and contributed to the settlements. We will continue to work through any remaining issues raised in the PD and address them in our comments, which are due in a few weeks. As we have publicly stated in all our filed testimony, we look forward to the opportunity to increase our presence in California and bring investment, jobs, and increased broadband availability to consumers across the state, in both urban and rural markets.
    Abernathy went on to say, If this transaction is ultimately approved by the full CPUC and the Transaction closes, California will benefit from millions of dollars of investment throughout the state, especially in unserved rural areas. Frontier is excited to bring our high-touch local engagement management model as well as our active involvement in the communities we serve to the cities that are part of this transaction.
    The full CPUC is expected to vote on the PD by the end of the year which follows the original schedule set out by Commissioner Sandoval and Administrative Law Judge Bemesderfer.

  • AT&T's Dividend: It's A Red Herring  [View article]
    Blue Harbinger...is that of the DOOM OF AT&T?

     C'mon, AT&T (T), the widows and orphans stock, is probably the best possible safe investment for income oriented investors and portfolios.  

    ~6% SAFE dividend is what AT&T (T) offers to happy investors and for many, many years was the highest paying Blue Chip.  

    BUY T (AT&T) for excellent income and proven safety.

  • Is Frontier's 8% Dividend Yield Still Sustainable? (Video)  [View article]
    Frontier (FTR) is a growing giant in American rural and suburban telecommunications and GOVERNMENT subsidized broadband service.

    FTR has very successfully negotiated all of the hazards of huge growth through acquisitions from AT&T & Verizon while being extremely shareholder friendly and paying a very safe 7+% dividend.

    BUY FTR for excellent, safe and outstanding current income and growth and capital gains in the near future.
