  • How NOT To Report On Demographics: Millennials Blamed For Taking Down McDonald's [View article]
    Dr. Fred, I hear you. And here's another statistic to explore. Has life expectancy in the U.S. lowered or increased in the last twenty years since fast food franchises have taken hold? If the answer is we're living longer, then maybe that "junk" we're eating isn't so bad after all. I'm just saying. You have a good one.

  • F-150 Will Be The Major Growth Driver For Ford [View article]
    Well, I don't know about me, but you certainly convinced yourself. You may as well load up the truck with Ford stock. Nuff said.

  • How NOT To Report On Demographics: Millennials Blamed For Taking Down McDonald's [View article]
    Just tell me this. How could the eating habits of millennials bring down McDonalds and not affect all the other numerous fast food franchises in the country? All I seem to hear about in the media is McDonalds. Can someone explain?

  • F-150 Will Be The Major Growth Driver For Ford [View article]
    Cbroncos, of course there are plenty of people who would love to get a pickup with 30+ mpg. But are there enough to make this a successful and profitable launch? That is the question that is still to be answered. As far as MPG savings offsetting a "little" increase in the price of the truck, well, that is a very vague statement. You are being very iffy. Why don't we just wait and see what rolls out with this new vehicle? That would take us out of the world of conjecture. Otherwise, we may as well talk about whether its going to rain 14 days from now. Know what I'm saying?

  • Big Oil Under Serious Threat [View article]
    Frank, never fear. Nature will never let humans or any other species overpopulate. If its not working, nature has multiple methods to correct itself. Plagues, war, starvation, disease, famine. So many ways to keep things in balance. If the earth can't support 9 billion people without upsetting the apple cart, nature will go into correction mode. Humans not withstanding. I guarantee it.

    Captain, if you're talking about being airborne, light is definitely better. But if you're talking about trucks, they are notoriously front end heavy and tend to fishtail and lose traction on bad road conditions. Like ice, for example. Being 700 lbs lighter may add to that problem. And have you checked out the prices on 2014 F-150's? 6 years ago you could get a decent one in the mid $20's. Stickers now are basically in the $40's and also carry dealer add on's which jack the price even higher. Looked in a dealer lot a couple weeks ago and probably 80% had dealer add on's. So what is the 2015 aluminum F-150 going to price out at? I think a whole lot of folks are going to be getting sticker shock when they check it out. Those are two things I'm concerned about with the 2015 F-150 truck. Maybe someone can comment on that.

  • Save Your Stomachs And Your Wallets - Stay Away From McDonald's [View article]
    Competition from Five Guys? Have you bought a hamburger from them lately? Like maybe twelve to fifteen dollars? Sure, its good. But is your wallet fat enough to handle that three or four times a week? You have to start robbing banks to keep up that habit. McDonalds is doing OK, all considered. You want to compare it to Five Guys? Be my guest. But I suggest to you that those are two different animals catering to separate clientele. McDonalds will do OK. Dealing with a media blitz currently for some reason, but that will pass. However the dividends remain. I'll buy more on a dip.

  • When To Jump Into Enterprise Product Partners [View article]
    So if EPD drops to around $62.50 then buy it? Casey, it would have to drop around $12 per share to do that. Now what, pray tell, aside from a major Market correction, would trigger a huge drop in share price like that? And if there is a major Market correction, there's going to be all kinds of stock up for sale at bargain rates. Other than that, I'll be old and gray before this stock drops 12 bucks. So what else is new?

  • Apple: A Reversal Of Fortune Seems Inevitable [View article]
    "quite content to lose my investment if Apple succeeds where others have failed."

    Hey, Blair already said he doesn't mind losing a few bucks if he's wrong. Let him short if he wants. Its only money.

  • A Better Entry Point For Apple Will Become Available For Patient Investors [View article]
    "•AAPL's price has peaked, it failed to break 100."

    And writers who claim psychic powers are just as apt to make a wrong prediction same as the average poster who is commenting on your article. You picked the worst week in months for the DOW to state that AAPL failed to break 100. Give me a break. My crystal ball says AAPL will break 100 within one month. One of us is going to be wrong. But in any case, I find it hard to believe that there is a plot to trick retail investors into buying overpriced AAPL shares. Its going to go up and down just like every other stock. But at the moment, the overall trend is steadily up and in the long run it just may prove to be an extremely profitable investment. Regardless, its no different than any other stock trading on the Market. I don't see any conspiracy here.

  • Russia takes aim at McDonald's as ties with U.S. worsen [View news story]
    So who is hurting who in this game of sanctions? It should be Europe versus Russia, not U.S. versus Russia. France, Germany, the eastern bloc need to step up and take on the bear. In the meantime, our southern border continues to be flooded with illegal aliens. Who is watching the store, may I ask? Maybe Obama and the boys? Not likely. Maybe the congress? That's a joke. And I should worry about the Ukrane? I don't think so.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - Domino's Is Rested, Ready And Is Taking Off (7/22/14) [View article]
    So when will CMG, MCD & KO start selling bread and water so we can all stay healthy? Seriously now. Does anyone really think people go to CMG because the food is healthier? I don't think so. They go there because the tacos are pretty good. Same for MCD. The health food fad is just that. Look at Whole Foods. Sales declining. Nobody's going to do a few laps around the block because their bodies were energized by a salad and chicken breast sandwich. MCD & KO will both prevail. Buy them on the dips. You'll live just as long and your wallet will get even fatter.
