  • Durability Test: Realty Income [View article]
    Brad,
    Our second largest holding,and I have attended the last two shareholder meetings.
    We purchase O directly thru our shareholder account,and re invest 10% of each monthly check.
    By re investing 10% we guarantee ourselves larger checks every year,even if we dont invest alot of new funds.
    We have full faith and trust in the almighty O.

  • RoseNose's Adventure To Reacquire Shares Of 3M Company... And Buy Now! [View article]
    Joanpete,

    I went ballistic on Schwab today
    I received a e mail stating my funds would be transferred by 8/17.
    The CD matured on 7/20.
    Schwab had the paperwork in their hands 1 month early 6/20
    This WILL be resolved by wire transfer tomorrow OR Scwab will be dumped before the transfer ever happens.
    Im LIVID at them,office filled with young hot shots that have totally fumbled the ball.
    This is more that "bad luck" it is total DISregard for the customer and total incompetence.
    The US mail could do a transfer faster.
    Beware people

    Rose,
    Nice to see your contribution,I hope you will continue to share your thoughts.
    MMM is like the corvette I have always wanted,but never could justify price wise.
    I was hoping to initiate a new DCA position in my Schwab IRA account,but they fumbled the ball with the transfer,and now tell me 6 to 8 days before my ammo will be ready to fire.
    There are 2 things in life I have terrible luck with,printers and brokerage houses.
    NEITHER work for me in the way they are suppose to.
    Keep em coming Rose...

  • Exxon Mobil - The Oil Giant Is Ready To Fall [View article]
    I dont invest for the next couple of quarters.
    I invest for the next 5,10,15 years.
    Our holdings are top heavy in oil,and portfolio values reflects that.
    Dividends keep rolling in and there is food on the table.
    Is there anyone who does not believe that at some point some/one/body/nation will have to confront Iraq and or Isis ?
    When the bombs start falling on oil fields,the price of oil will skyrocket.
    If you want to expedite the above process,vote Trump.

  • Bank Of America: Stop Being A Hater And Become A Believer [View article]
    Im a hater of what has been done to our country thru political corruption and wealthy people who should be in jail.
    I am not a hater of any particular stock,and certainly not a hater of R.S.,and he knows that.
    I simply lack any trust anymore.

  • Bank Of America: Stop Being A Hater And Become A Believer [View article]
    Four years ago,I was given a hot tip from those in the know to jump on BAC.
    I own zero bank stocks.
    With even the remote possibility of another Bush brother being elected, I cant let myself invest.
    If you have some spare time,research the Canadian banking system and compare it to ours.
    AMAZINGLY they have had none of the problems and or corruption our system has had.
    Where has American gone as I know it ?

  • Rich Kinder Should Be Rooting For Lower Prices [View article]
    Holding,not adding to my KMI position.
    At some point,someone or some country,will be forced to stand up to ISIS and or Iraq.
    My best guess is it will be Israel.
    Once the bombs begin,oil and supporting industries will skyrocket.
    It may not happen overnight,but it will happen.
