  • Wall Street Breakfast: Must-Know News [View article]
    Regarding Chattanooga & the UAW--it's not just the politicians who are opposed to the union. Some of the workers are filing charges against the UAW regarding their tactics:

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Going Long In A Scary Market [View article]
    Great article, RS. I notice that the Fear & Greed index is now up to 83. I was just talking to my dad the other day about the subject of this article, and while it always seems wise to take some profits, it is ever so tempting to see if it will stretch just a bit farther... often leading to turmoil!

    That said, it's tough to develop the mentality to invest for the long term and then try and decide when/if it's wise to take profits. I want to invest, not trade, but when so many stocks are up 20% it presents a dilemma.

    Thanks for your work.

  • Super-Fast Growing Mid-Cap Growth Stocks With Explosive Returns [View article]
    It would be great! Of course, I would gladly give up future dividends to know which one will double in the near future!

  • Is Dividend Investing The Perfect Strategy For Any Age Group? [View article]
    RS--Let me start by saying that I respect and appreciate your work. 40% returns are certainly nothing to sneeze at.

    What I'm curious about, as a young investor, is what (if any) methodology exists to discover the next MSFT. I think fieldhouse makes a good point--while the stocks mentioned certainly have room to grow, most of them are so well-established that they don't have the ceiling that MSFT or AAPL had in their genesis. I'm not going to turn down gains of 40%, and you're certainly doing better than I am, which is why I read your articles and research your ideas, but I'm looking for the microcaps that have plenty of room to grow. Obviously, these are hard to find and a risky gamble, but you're absolutely right that youth makes such risks worth taking, because there is time to recover. If they were easy to find, everyone would be investing in them, but I try to have my portfolio be a collection of established dividend growers that can compound over time as well as some smaller companies that have the room and potential to grow.

    Thanks again for your work.

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Time To Focus On Ford [View article]
    You say that the 14% payout ratio hints that dividend increases could be right around the corner. Didn't Ford just double their dividend?

  • A Newbie Active Investor Discusses His Portfolio [View article]
    Not sure if you've explored Fast Graphs ( or not, but it's a great way to get a glimpse of a stock's value and the way the stock market has historically valued it. I'm an amateur investor and it's helped me tremendously on knowing when a stock is beaten up and under-priced and when a stock is in truly bad shape. It keeps me from trading too often and helps me see the value of patience.

    While I'd prefer Warren, I wouldn't whine too much to be as rich as Jimmy.

  • Top 10 Pick: Buy Berkshire Hathaway [View article]
    If I understand it right, it wouldn't really matter--from what I've read, the class B shares move in proportion to the class A shares, so they have equal risk/reward.

  • A Seeking Alpha Contrary Indicator, Or Bulls Bellow Loudest Before A Fall [View article]
    I agree. Not sure that analyzing positive and negative comments on a stock on Seeking Alpha is the best way to build and monitor a portfolio.

  • Improve Your Dividend Growth Portfolio By Lowering Your Risk [View article]
    The dividend income is the same, assuming companies do not slash dividends, whether the market goes up 35% or down 35%.

  • CSX Corp.: Fundamental Stock Research Analysis [View article]
    It's tempting to keep the powder dry until the crisis peaks... but, as Palm said, that's usually only clear afterwards. I've nibbled on both CSX and NSC, and will continue to do so. I expect our elected 'leaders' to do nothing more than kick the can down the road.

    Also important: the US government writing an $8000 check every time someone buys a Volt. Let's see what happens after that program ends.
