  • Stocks Are Two-Faced, And One Is A Pathological Liar [View article]
    I think the problem for LKQ is the valuation and the run it's had. It's difficult for someone like myself to buy an auto parts company at twice the forward P/E as GM. I realize that GM doesn't have the growth in earnings but everyone has heard of GM and GM pays a good dividend.

  • A Few More Reasons Why I Am Bullish On J.C. Penney [View article]
    You say that JCP is going to return to promotions but I haven't seen it in my mailbox and I have a JCP credit card. Macy's on the other hand sends me discount cards around once a month.
    I went into JCP a few times last year and just don't see why anyone would want to buy the women's clothing. I will go into the store and look for the private brands you say are coming back within the week. I suggest that you actually do that before you buy the stock.
    When I went to JCP twice during my Christmas shopping, no one was shopping there, and I didn't buy anything there. The most simple things like buying winter house shoes and leggings for myself could not be accomplished because their sizes had changed in house shoes in that medium was too small and large was too big, and leggings were all too short. They have really made JCP worse and no one is going to pay those prices for poor fit and quality.

    It's too bad people can't distinguish between the stocks.

  • Retirement Strategy: When Should We Sell Stocks From Our Portfolio? [View article]
    My reason to buy is to invest in something that makes money. My reason to sell is that I just don't think it is going to make me any more money.

  • Retirement Strategy: When Should We Sell Stocks From Our Portfolio? [View article]
    If you are 50% ahead and take the chips off, then how do you get 100% ahead? Dip buying?
    I guess I'm not too good at tracking my return. Someone asked me recently and I said I had no idea my total return. On my long term stocks I can use a calculator to figure it out. But on my buys and sells each year, I just forget about them and move on. But that can be a mistake as well, because those stocks can become great stocks to buy again when they are down, if and when that ever happens...

  • Retirement Strategy: When Should We Sell Stocks From Our Portfolio? [View article]
    If you own stock for the dividend, then you are correct. But when do you sell a stock that has greatly appreciated since you bought it? I have sold many too early in the past 5 years. And in the previous market crashes, I sold many too late.

  • IBM: Take A Long-Term Perspective [View article]
    When people start downloading Watson apps onto their smartphone, the stock is going to skyrocket. IBM is one of the world's most valuable brands and very well-known. If you can inquire in English to Watson and get an answer while you are sick or shopping for something or trying to make an investing decision or figuring out an offer on a house or determining the repeat criminal offenders in the vicinity of a crime, then those people familiar with the download and usage of those apps are going to invest in IBM stock. It's the same way Google started with a search engine. People bought the stock just because of search.

  • Gold fix manipulated for a decade, says study [View news story]
    Many things go down in the afternoon. Why would you think gold should be any different? People who buy disappear, probably headed home.

  • Helicopter Business On The Rise [View article]
    I bought TXT on 11/9/2013 and I'm up 49%. I've been wondering when to take my profits. It's still a 5 star stock on S&P Capital IQ, which has been that way since last summer, and perhaps even earlier.
    I bought the stock because of some articles I read on Barron's and Forbes. Recently there was an article from Huntsville, AL that the Pentagon is committed to the early design of verticle lift aircraft, and the companies mentioned who are in the forefront of this competition are four:
    Textron Inc's (TXT) Bell Helicopter which is teamed with Lockheed Martin Corp (LMT) ; Sikorsky (a unit of UTX), teamed with Boeing (BA); AVX Aircraft and Karem Aircraft. Ultimately, the program will replace between 2,000-4,000 medium class UH-60 Black Hawk utility helicopters built by Sikorsky Aircraft, a unit of United Technologies Corp (UTX) and Boeing Co AH-64 attack helicopters after 2030.
    S&P's forecast for TXT is revenue growth of 10% in 2014. So as long as the overall market is doing well, I expect TXT to continue to move higher. But 2030 is a ways out so there may be many opportunities to buy the stock at a lower price.

  • My Best Idea For 2014 [View article]
    You may want to review the opinion of Trefis that has an agreement with S&P to develop this valuation website. Their target is $19.22.
    I have no opinion as I try to avoid companies who lose money some years because I prefer to own stocks long-term.
