  • Major fast-food restaurant strikes planned for today [View news story]
    The 'pro minimum wage hikers' will never learn (or never admit) that there was never any promise/contract/oblig... by the fast food chains that insinuated that these types of jobs are meant to support or raise a family on for medium- or long term. It's a crap/temporary job... Or the dirty little secret that the minute you increase wages on a grand scale, you will create layoffs. I do commend anyone that stays off welfare to do this work. I know from experience. But previous layoffs will pale in comparison when these new automated burger-flippin' robots are deployed. The choice to protest is theirs, along w/ the outcome...

  • McDonald's Bulls Getting Ahead Of Themselves [View article]
    Nice little FUD-filled hit piece by a raging MCD bear. You will never find a longtime MCD holder "get ahead of himself". You might discover him/her quietly depositing the ever-growing dividend check, without much fanfare... But I'll tell you this: I've seen PLENTY of this author's ilk, getting ahead of themselves the last 18 months or so. They absolutely can't stand hearing about any success of MCD... It makes me happy....

  • Chipotle cuts loss as E coli outbreak appears contained [View news story]
    Hmmm. Imagine the outcry if this were MCD. Yes, it happened to MCD in China, but here in the US? PFFT. Chipotle is just as unhealthy as MCD (sodium, calories, fat)....

    Yep, I'm long MCD....

  • Kinder Morgan -4% as investors react negatively to funding plan [View news story]
    ....."Do your research, see that Moody is close to rating KMI non-investment grade,....."

    Funny that you can't do the research, when your claim about Moody's doesn't exist. You then shift your stance, saying you "believe" Moody's will downgrade. You belong in the bucket alongside Cramer, ie, not to be taken seriously. For long-term holders of KMI, your noise doesnt matter. KMI isn't going away....

  • Microsoft Is Copying Apple's Strategy, And It Will Work [View article]
    Bart, good point

    ...."Apple had released the Apple II (April 1977) and the Apple III (May 1980) before MS-DOS say the light of day (August 1981)."....

    And had a very small pool of apps for the Apple II or III. That's why they fell behind commercially... Sound familiar?

  • Bloomberg: ESPN set to cut 350 jobs amid downturn [View news story]
    Like or hate Tom Brady, I've never seen such contempt by a network (ie, NFLs puppet) towards the best QB in the league. I was planning on cutting cable, but ESPN made it that much easier last month. Glad to see ESPN squirm.

  • Retirement Strategy: Don't Miss An Opportunity To Add A Dividend Aristocrat At Bargain Pricing! [View article]
    I want a basket of the best blue chip companies, buying them when the irrational market puts them on sale. It's fun to do, and I sleep well at night. Index funds gives me a basket of 'meh' with no flexibility, no control, and fees. That's not fun.

  • McDonald's All-Day Breakfast: Initial Success Will Be Overshadowed By Long-Term Despair [View article]
    This hit piece on MCD fails to mention that it's a FCF juggernaut, even while facing medium term challenges. Also, MCD is the best restaurant chain able to handle a minimum wage increase. All negative articles written about MCD, talk as if the wage increase would only affect MCD and not its competitors.
