  • 9%+ Dividend Payer Linn Energy/LinnCo Missed By -$0.83, Or Did It? [View article]
    He got his info from Yahoo Finance. I have warned people about those sites (yes Google too has errors).

    My own brokerage still shows OHI's dividend as quarterly; although it went monthly beginning in April. There is so much bad information around that sometimes I wonder if its intentional.

    I did notice last year that KO has a product for sale in Argentina called Coca Cola Life (that is the actual name on the label) that uses stevia combined with sugar (cane sugar only) to sweeten the drink. Its only in Chile and Argentina: http://bit.ly/1dkcr4N

  • Replace The 4% Retirement Rule With These 4% Dividend Stocks [View article]
    Sorry about duplicating your post; it wasn't there when I posted. It took a couple of minutes to find the index info & the ETF site.

    Here is a link to the index: http://bit.ly/UQiaDw

    Looking at their website, there is only one authorized ETF that uses the index (SDOG). Here is a link to the ETF website: http://bit.ly/1D2EnBc

    The site indicates that current dividends are right at 4%.

  • May To Be A Great Month For Rare Earth Prices [View article]
    I wouldn't count on government support as Molycorp is not TBTF. Also, look at their product mix; its not the best imo. The plant is there now; so someone else can pick it up if Molycorp goes broke. If the assets sell at a low enough price, then some profit can be expected.

    Think Robinson after BHP dumped it and then Quardra Mining had a nice run there. If you get the mine, plant and equipment for $0.20 on the dollar; it does make a difference.

  • Mr. Market Discounts Petrobras 60%, New Developments Signal Time To Buy [View article]
    Maybe they are trying to be like GS, so they send out a sell rating while they are accumulating.

  • 11.25% Yankee Bonds From IAMGold, BB-/B1 Rated, Matures October 2020 [View article]
    Letwin is not even a miner: http://linkd.in/1CUxAr3. Most of his experience is with transportation and oil & gas. Not the same thing at all. It was a shocker when he was brought on and he has done nothing to justify his placement.

    The destruction of shareholder value continues under his watch. Especially when the BOD decided to retain him: http://bit.ly/1CUxD6h

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Nikkei Retreats From 15-Year High [View article]
    Or maybe the system is not quite good enough. My experience with insurance companies is that they are quite happy to have you spend money to decrease their risk. If they perceived that risk would be reduced; imo they would support the technology.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Nikkei Retreats From 15-Year High [View article]
    It reminds of flying on a small carrier in the 1990s. The pilots and copilots were all very young and making less than $8,000/year (not much even then). When I asked why they would do that, the response was that they were increasing their flight hours in hopes of getting on with a major airline.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: LaFarge, Holcim Name Olsen As CEO [View article]
    Greece made the April payment to the IMF despite being courted by Russia. It seems that is good news for the EU as evidenced by the EU market reaction.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Crude Surges On Yemen Tensions [View article]
    Its actually quite logical. They (Shia, Sunnis and Kurds) just can't get along; so no reason to go with boundaries drawn by France and England.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Crude Surges On Yemen Tensions [View article]
    KSA attacking a Shia group supported by Iran in Yemen could also lead to a broadened conflict in the region. Ras Tanura is within easy striking distance of Iran and they could always use a surrogate, as they've done elsewhere. In fact it could just be Houthis in response to attacks made by KSA.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Crude Surges On Yemen Tensions [View article]
    Iran has wanted to carve out a "Shia Crescent" around the Persian Gulf for decades now. Kuwait and eastern KSA are inside that crescent. This "small conflict" could become very serious. With Yemen and now Iraq considering splitting into three countries (http://on.wsj.com/1NiJEs0), including a Shia state along the east of what is now Iraq, they are closer than ever to achieving that goal.

    Now imagine Iran with nuclear weapons.
