  • Sorry Warren, But I'd Stick With ConocoPhillips [View article]
    Smurf,
    They always know something we dont.
    They "MOVE" markets.
    They "MAKE" markets.
    Im not saying Warren is dis honest,that is just the way the game works !
    Mr Buffet has been kind to me this year.
    I cashed out my HNZ too,so perhaps I saw stuff before him ?

  • Sorry Warren, But I'd Stick With ConocoPhillips [View article]
    Long COP,XOM,RDS/B
    Take your pick,I like all 3
    Correction is coming,what better place to park cash than XOM ?
    RDS/B has responded the best since Warren's move.
    That might tell you something if you compare RDS/B and XOM's strategy.
    Both companies are rich in natural gas,and have openly told investors its gonna be a while until you see the "REAL BANG" for your buck.
    Another theory is the worlds thirst for oil is nowhere near letting up,despite the optimism we will be energy independent in just a few years.

  • Why Did Warren Buffett Buy Exxon Mobil? His Partner Charlie Munger Reveals All [View article]
    Interesting article in that Natty gas is not even mentioned.
    Did anyone notice the price jump in RDS/B the day after Warren bought a huge chunk of XOM ?
    Coincidence ?

  • Retirees: What Is The Best Choice For A Small Income Portfolio? [View article]
    Bob,
    Since you asked for opinions,here is mine.
    I tried to sell LMT a few weeks ago,it has made a huge run for me.
    In the end,I decided not to sell.
    If you really have a itchy trigger finger on LMT,sell half.
    Selling WAG for TGT good move.
    Selling LNCO would be a great move in my opinion.
    NEVER sell JNJ,it is a tier 1 holding
    Sell all mortgage reits and replace them with Opf,Dukh,O,SO.
    In my opinion mortgage reits are not for retirees.

    Thanks for sharing,

  • Team Alpha Portfolios: Moving Away From Positions To Add Positions [View article]
    In my humble opinion,all great moves
    As for "O",if we remain low interest rate environment,I think "O" will remain strong.

  • Altria - Diversified Portfolio Creating Brighter Prospects [View article]
    Tobacco stocks are my number 1 holding
    Like everyone above,cancer has greatly affected my life.
    Mom,ex wife,best friend,aunts,uncles.
    Unlike everyone above,my great uncle owned tobacco farms that were sold to big tobacco in a sweetheart deal.
    In my eyes,,,they OWE me the dividends.
    I am still a firm believer that BIG TOBACCO will rule legalized marjane,and possibly within the next 10-15 years.
    For those of you who doubt me,sign onto godaddy.com and try to purchase some maryjane names.
    Can you own the name "Panama Red"?
    NO ?
    Who owns that name ?
    Can you own the name "Maui Wowi" ?
    No ?
    Who owns that name ?
    The "BIG PICTURE" is perfectly clear for me.

  • 5 Reasons To Buy AT&T Here [View article]
    T's 5% is very attractive
    The question is how and when will the divvy continue to grow ?
    I own a little T,but view it as a bond alternative,much like I view OpF and DUKH.
    Please convince me otherwise,and I will buy more "T" tomorrow.

  • You Don't Need $2.5 Million To Retire [View article]
    Eli,
    I was forced to retire at 55 thru lay off
    I now care for my elderly pop.
    The key to retiring is debt.
    If you can become debt free,and remain debt free,it can be done.
    I will need a new car within a few years.
    This will present a challenge,but I am building it into my plans.
    I may also rent my condo here in San Diego and simply RV it until age 65.
    Whatever rent I earn will be invested in a new RV
    Other options include living in Thailand or Panama.
    At this point <going on age 58> I LOVE not working,and will only return to work if I can earn what I was making when I got laid off.
    Otherwise it is cut a few luxuries,walk more,read more,love life

  • New Money Is Coming Into The Market: Don't Miss The Boat [View article]
    Dave,
    Timing has never been my forte in life.

    Hope all is well

  • The REIT Way To Become A Disciplined Dividend Investor [View article]
    Hey Brad,
    Several years ago,I convinced my ex boss to invest in Novagold.
    I was screaming from the hilltops,,,buy NG
    Soros loved NG
    The market loved NG
    Even other gold miners loved NG and tried to buy them.
    Well,,,,,Soros bailed,and I didnt and neither did my ex boss,,who will forever hold this one against me...
    I got hurt big on that one.
    Remember two very important facts.
    # 1 We are spoon fed info by the companies we covet and analyze,and we base our recommendations on that "spoon-fed" info.
    # 2 Even if all the info we digest is 100% true,NOBODY gets "them
    ALL right",in fact,,if you are getting 6 out of 10 correct,you are making a profit.
    SWAN = diversify
