  • Looking Beyond The Obvious: Critical Thinking And Investment Decisions (Part 1) [View article]
    Who ever thought Sears would fall on hard times ?
    Who ever thought Kodak would fold ?
    With today's health conscious world,where is Mc Donalds headed and or sugary drinks ?
    IBM ?
    Not the powerhouse it once was.
    Even Microsoft has lost some of its shine.
    The "obvious" to me is people are living longer,and the baby boomer generation is aging fast.
    That leads me to the conclusion anything healthcare related should be around as long as I am.
    Same with consumer staples,babies need diapers,people will always buy food.
    Oil,probably will be gone someday,but not before my deathbed.
    Defense spending securities,well with ISIS now a very real worldwide threat,I cant see how they will go away.
    Utilities and telecoms ?
    Surely will outlive me.
    Just thinking out loud.

    JCCIII,

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    In my mind,I kind of consider BRK-B a fund more that a single security.
    For that reason,I havent given it serious consideration.
    I do plan on using some funds to give myself some international exposure.
    I have never researched BRK-B,but will do so now.

    Thanks again,
    Bill

  • Realty Income: Buying A Share A Month [View article]
    Eli,
    Over the last 4 years I have dollar cost averaged my way into "O" using the direct purchase program thru computershare.
    Each month when they send me a direct deposit,10% is deducted for re investment.
    While that does not equate to one share per month,it does guarantee my dividend income will continue to grow.
    I use the same 10% rule,with DUK,K,GIS,KRFT.
    Do I really miss that 10% ?
    NO
    Am I getting rich only reinvesting 10% ?
    No,but I am guaranteeing dividend growth,and continuing disciplined savings,even in my early retirement.

    LONG O,T.

    Top 10 for sure.
    NSRGY,MMM,VTR.
    PEP,EMR,BCE.
    D,BA,ED,CINF.
    Growth wise
    DIS,NKE,UA,GILD are all probable.
