  • Retirement Strategy: When There Is Blood In The Streets, Will You Become A Vampire? [View article]
    Since I have very little dry powder left to invest, I have been relegated to position of observer as far as the Market is concerned. Thank God those dividends are still coming in. Makes a big difference.

  • Why Bank Of America Presents A Great Opportunity [View article]
    Wei, I agree they're getting better at settling litigation, but the hanky panky still hasn't stopped. That's my concern. When a company taints its reputation and continues to misbehave, then one wonders if maybe they aren't really serious at reforming. Current BAC management still has'nt got its house in order, and its been years. I'd love to invest in BAC, but not so much with the current management. Something aint right yet.

    "As Bank of America continues to resolve its litigation charges"

    But its been 'continuing' for several years now. Just in the last few days they were fined by the FED. So how long does it take for them to get their house in order? Is their management incapable or unwilling to play by the rules that would keep them out of hot water? This is the one thing that concerns me about BAC. If they can keep their hands clean, they could become a decent investment. They haven't proven that yet.

  • The Problem With Management At Annaly Capital Management [View article]
    If I get this right NLY management will never buy back shares because their compensation is structured on total shares. Its not in their interest to reduce the number of shares. Forget fiduciary responsibility. That went out the window with the deal they made to run the company. Am I getting this right? And if I am, I would have to conclude that we have a bunch of slick operators running the company.

  • McDonald's Turnaround Plan Fails To Convince Us [View article]
    There is only so much a restaurant can do to help its bottom line. One is to sell a product people like. Two is to sell it at a price people are willing to pay and still make a profit. MCD can do both. They've got the 'Big Mac" and "Fries" that almost everybody likes. They've already proven they can sell them at a profit. Solution to current problem? Keep it simple and the customers will come. End the menu gimmicks and promote what made them successful in the first place. Hamburgers and fries. That, my friends, is the turnaround secret in a nutshell. And I think MCD knows that, and that's why I think MCD will become successful again. BUY MCD under $96 and you'll make a buck. I'd bet a Big Mac and fries on it.

  • Annaly - Portfolio Rehab, Step 1: Don't Chase Yield (Sorry Wellington, It's Over Between Us) [View article]
    "only" down about a dollar after three years? And that after dividends? You would have done better putting your money in a savings account for .1% interest. No?

  • Annaly - Portfolio Rehab, Step 1: Don't Chase Yield (Sorry Wellington, It's Over Between Us) [View article]
    Agree with your assessment of NLY. Too much hoping and praying and not enough performance to make it worth owning. Got burned a little and got out. Not even looking back.

  • Mr. Market Is Trying To Send Us A Message About Omega Healthcare [View article]
    Rose, I gotta tell you I own most of the stocks you mentioned, and they have been great performers. But they are all getting clobbered lately. Its getting long in the tooth. I'm patiently waiting for a bounce back.

    511, I think the author is agreeing with you about the effect interest rates will have on REITs, but he is also implying that OHI is underperforming its peers, and that is reflected recently by its underperformance in share price. At least, that is what I am taking from his article.

  • Dumping Apple Makes Sense For Immediate Income Growth [View article]
    RS, I beat you to it. Bought AAPL for $95.45 & sold it 3/17 for $126.50. I just felt it was a little toppy.

  • Sorry Big Mac, It's Going To Take Plenty More To Change This Company [View article]
    Cynic, the fact is, we are still living longer, with or without McDonalds. Why the big fuss over fast foods? In the end, something eventually is going to kill each and every one of us. I don't think fast food companies like McDonalds are the villians health advocates make them out to be. The health craze is gradually going to taper down and McDonalds will still be ringing the register. I would suspect that buying MCD on dips is going to be a wise investment. Especially with their dividend. we shall see. Have a good one.
