  • I'm Not Buying Darden Restaurants, Despite The 4.66% Dividend Yield [View article]
    What good is a high div. when profits are falling and they are dumping their good restaurants? Wonder what business will be like next quarter

    Smokey Bones has delicious bbq food and they dump them...then Red Lobster.

    I think their main reason they are losing money is their board. Replace with people who have better vision of how they can improve their services instead of dumping restaurants one at a time.

    People here like MCD, they are always having specials to draw people in. At the present time it is 2 Egg McMuffins for $3.00.

    Once you draw people in, they usually spend more than anticipated.

  • Restaurants stocks in focus [View news story]
    I've been watching Denny's for the last 6 mos. I couldn't believe it was so cheap when I first looked at it.

    Being a senior myself, and all us boomers retiring, DEN is going to go up. You definitely get your moneys worth at Dennys which drives traffic up. Last Thanksgiving we went past it and it was crowded!

    That, plus I think DRI was STUPID to sell Olive Garden. Don't want to purchase with a board making moves like that.

  • All Eyes Will Be On Ford And Alcoa At The Detroit Auto Show [View article]
    The Impalas have a lot of aluminum in their body and they ride beautiful.

    My only problem is BA is cutting back on the use of aluminum and using plastic.

    My 2003 Impala has a good bit of aluminum in its body, so I'm sure the newer ones do too...rides nice(still!)

    My only problem with AA is BA isn't using as much aluminum, they are using some kind of plastic on their body. Sounds dangerous to me.

  • The Return Of King Coal And The Coal Stocks To Play The Rebound [View article]
    I bought ACI at 4.10....My only caution is Obama is against coal, so he may fine energy companies for not updating their plants. I think there is one that shut down their coal powered plant because they couldn't afford to upgrade it..

    I do believe exports will go up because both Europe and China are improving.

  • How Obamacare Will Affect The Largest Health Insurance Stocks [View article]
    I just read in the paper last week that the senator from Montana who helped write Obamacare said it is not ready for next yr. If they try to endorse it, things will get worse. Last night Harry Reid mimmiced his words. He said "we have the menu, but not the ingredients".

    Obama was asked about it this week too during his speech and said "like anything new, there will be problems at first."

    So, I don't look fwd to it being ready next year.

    Our local hospital also sells insurance(personally I don't think this should be allowed), but let me tell you they were one of the first people at Obamas steps when he started talking about it.

    China is improving now and FXI is supposed to be a good investment.

  • Reasons Why Annaly And Some Other REITs Should Continue To Do Well [View article]
    CLNY is worth looking at. I get a nice dividend and it doesn't have large jumps in the pricing action.

  • 5 Airline Stocks Providing Potential Buying Opportunities [View article]
    The oil part I disagree with. If the new leaders try to increase oil prices by taking more profits, the U.S. will tap into our own reserves while at the same time creating more clean energy for autos etc..

    Weather...There have been quite a few tsunamis lately, but whose to say it's going to happen this frequently in the future. You can't judge the future by the past. Here in the U.S. it has been getting colder longer, which should improve airline traffic...especially with more boomers retiring each yr.

  • An Unpopular Commodity Stock Paying a 6.4% Dividend [View article]
    Investing in MO isn't any worse than your tax dollars going towards the methadone clinics all around the nation.

    At least with MO, we get a dividend, the government doesn't give us any of our tax dollars back that is used to support the drug habbits of the meth users. As a matter of fact, they bus them right to the clinic. They should bus me to my job too.
