  • Intel And Inevitability [View article]
    "I fully expect Intel to be a $100 billion company in ~ three years, running 40% operating earnings and making $7.50 per share (4 billion shares) and a P/E of 18 for a stock price of $130-140."

    I hope you will revisit your forecast in ~three years.

    The author's lack of response is, in effect, a response; but it doesn't say much, does it?

  • More Picks To Triple In A Correction [View article]
    Is there any point in stating that the following is not even a sentence?:

    "Keep that in mind as we sit here at $7.50, with the stock market in a place that is making it prohibitively difficult to make money.

    ...Or that the following is hopelessly convoluted?:

    This is going to be, I think, one of the few areas that give us, one of the few stocks that give us a great opportunity to make great money at very little risk."

    Perhaps English is a secondary language.

    "These guys are so busy chasing investment banking business, marketing with their buy-side customers, they're very busy, okay."

    Okay. These guys are so busy they're very busy.

  • My Vision Of What The 'Perfect Retirement Portfolios For Dummies' Might Look Like [View article]
    "Regardless, $8,000 per year is a small amount of income, not even close to allowing a retiree to live, even if you add in social security (maybe $20,000 per year), living on a total of $28K per year is pretty tough, even if you have paid off your house and have zero additional debt."

    NOT True! If one retiree can't live on $28K/yr, something's wrong. I have no debt but for living expenses and manage to live quite comfortably on ~$9K/yr. No SS. I don't "need to sell off stock each year...." I have plenty of real estate equity, which doesn't pay anything, yet annual income is quite meagerly: equity rich, cash poor.

  • How To Know When A REIT Is Worth Buying [View article]
    "In my REIT newsletter, I provide high-level analysis so that investors can attempt to find an adequate margin of safety."

    Are you implying that articles like this are less than the "high-level analysis" of your newsletter?

    Your article recommends selling, right? Why not say that instead of: "There are other, high-quality MLPs that match one and beat the other...."

  • Why American Capital Agency Is A Good Long-Term Investment [View article]
    "AGNC has had a stellar year so far. The shares have gained 15.21%, with a dividend yield of 11.63%, thus giving a total shareholder return of 26.84%."

    This "return of 26.8%" is Only applicable if one had bought at a particular point in time. What is the return if one had bought ~$30/share? That might be a little more RELEVANT!
