  • Retirement Strategy: Magic? There Is No Magic To Investing For The Long Term [View article]
    The only magic I know of is the compounding of dividends and or interest.
    And the Golden Rule is Start saving as soon as you can, and never stop,as you stated above.
    Even in retirement it doesnt hurt to re invest 10% of the dividend check to create your own dividend growth.
    Wish I had more dry powder

  • Please, Do Not Buy Altria Now [View article]
    There are several blue chips hurt by the strong dollar.
    If you believe the dollar will remain strong forever,dont buy them.
    I believe at some point the dollar will soften.
    I also believe at some point MO and PM could be major players in the legalization of maryjane.
    Therefore I remain long and strong on both.

  • Remember That Ham Sandwich Quote? [View article]
    For many years my "nickname" on the streets of San Diego was "Ham Sandwich".
    I fed the homeless at a park under the five freeway,my dime,my time.
    One day I took a cell phone photo of the park,to send the address to a friend who wanted to do the same.
    I was called "WHITE POS" and other racially insulting names.
    Those racially insulting folks never tasted another morsel of food from me.
    Always remember the Titanic was built by experts,Noah's ark was built by amateurs.
    Im not sure I could run "any" company in America,better than current leadership,I AM SURE I COULD RUN A FEW CASINOS,better than the people who run them now.

    Bill in San Diego
    Once called "Ham Sandwich"

  • 5 Stocks Raising Their Yield-On-Cost With Higher Dividends [View article]
    We own CTWS,MO,and RY.
    Three for five.
    By the way,the water companies out here in California have learned from the oil industry.
    Drought will soon mean hire water rates.
    I wonder if they will lower the water rates if and when the reservoirs return to normal ?
    They have never lowered the gas with oil in the $30"s.
    Which now brings us to the EGG market.
    Yes,it worked for the oil industry,worked for the water industry,so we now have a shortage of eggs.
    Amazing how gullible and vulnerable we Californians are.
    We believe anything and just pay,pay,pay....

    You do not need to fill up at a EXXON station to be buying Exxon gas.
    Unlike days of old gasoline is now cross branded.
