  • Long Kraft As The Heinz Merger Radically Transforms The Company [View article]
    As a former shareholder of HNZ,and current shareholder of KFT,I couldnt be happier with this deal.
    Re investing all dividends and special dividends,with a eye to adding to my position on dips.
    I hope Mr Buffet continues to raid my portfolio causing 20 and 30% gains.

  • 10 Reasons Why Growth Stocks Can Be Appropriate For Retired Investors [View article]
    Great article Chuck,

    I will be building a brandy new DGI portfolio on 7/20 with funds from a maturing IRA CD.
    The goal of this new portfolio is 4% dividend income,8% growth.
    I plan on using many of the A and Bbb + rated stocks talked about here for my main gumbo,spiced with some low/no dividend growth stocks like you have mentioned.
    Im even throwing in a small position of a international growth fund to spice it up.

    Keep the great stuff coming,

  • My Rationale For Selecting This Moat-Worthy Brand [View article]
    "O" is our largest position,followed by "T"
    Those who chase CAGR are all over me,telling me I fail the Chowdah.
    Problem is CAGR wasnt paying the monthly bills,and O and T do.

    All the Best,

    Great article and I concur with most of your analysis.
    As for LMT,I consider it a core holding,the world continues to be a very unsafe place.

    I wonder if we asked a panel under the age of 30,what their responses would be ?
    I think its safe to say that many of those who responded are over 40 and perhaps over 50

    O is our largest holding,followed by T.
    When people scream at me about CAGR,I remind them that when my CAGR was higher,my income was too low.
    Trying to find that perfect balance now

    So, A contrarian portfolio could be built buying MO,PM,MSFT,SBUX,IBM,PF...
    GE is the largest holding for US politicians,obviously our panel does not think they are the wisest.
    MO and PM, both should and would explode in value,if or when they enter the legalized business.
    SBUX,who can live without it ?
    PFE continues to acquire <or attempt to acquire> solid well run companies.
    IBM,MSFT,show that tech stocks are only as good as your grandfathers Old Spice.
    And last but not least T, a stock that I am very bullish on,while I enjoy their fine 5.7% divvy.
    I love this debate.

  • E-Cigs May Be Just What The Doctor Ordered For Your Retirement Portfolio [View article]
    Its all about the $$$$$ my friend.
    With legalized gaming,lotteries,bingo... roads,gas taxes,our politicians still can balance a budget.
    The next logical step is legalized Maryjane.
    States are drooling over anticipated increased tax income.
    Im not quite sure what comes next.
    Cant legalize METH
    I suppose we could tax apathy,that would be a huge $ producer.
