  • Update: McDonald's Sales Leaves Me With Egg McMuffin On My Face [View article]
    Aside from sales, MCD has been beleaguered by negative press for a couple months. Its having an affect. The media heavily played up the demand for $15 per hour wage for MCD employees to the exclusion of other fast food franchises. Its all having an impact on share price. I would expect MCD stock price to rebound once the media moves on to other issues and the company starts implementing new marketing programs to drum up sales.

  • Base Scenario: Apple's Mobile Payment Service Generates $2 Billion In Revenue [View article]
    Yes indeed. That was a great read. Harkens well for future profits. So explain one thing. With all these positives, why has the stock been clobbered for the last three trading days. Something is not computing. .

    UHHHHH, forget about AAPL hitting those all time highs. They just got clocked today on the news of a suspected security breach. The party is over. Get your stops in.

    Forget mobile payments. A bunch of movie stars got their cell phones hacked showing them pulling their pants down. AAPL security went down the toilet. They could reincarnate the second coming and it won't help them. AAPL has been officially screwed.

    I currently own shares in WFC. So far, so good. Although, I personally would recommend any company in the BTDP portfolio. I own most of them. Good luck investing.

  • Retirement Strategy: ETF Only Portfolio Vs. Buy The Dips Portfolio - August Update [View article]
    RS, I have never felt a stronger discipline about my investing as I have since following your articles and advice. I've got to say I deeply appreciate your advice and knowledge and have adjusted my investments to reflect a blend of your funds. And so far it's really paying off. Takes a lot of gambling out of buying stocks and gives you a good sense of control. I felt compelled to let you know that. Look forward to your articles.

    RS, yes. You're right. The buyers who couldn't really afford houses became opportunists and co-conspirators with the hustlers, who were BOA and the government. They both shook down the taxpayer and ultimately BOA shareholders. And it's happening again now. The government put a little lipstick on the pig by using tax dollars to partially offset BOA's fine. Shades of the past. Nothing really changed. Sorry for the negativity. It just affects my sense of right and wrong.

    So BOA gets a $7 billion tax break on the $17 billion pay out? Looks to me like tax payers get hosed again by BOA. That's OK. They've had some kind of strange relationship with the government for years now. And when you think about it, BOA and the government appear to take turns screwing either the taxpayer or the common shareholder ever since the Countrywide deal. RS, you may be right. This could be the time to buy BOA. You definitely make a good case. But I won't be buying BOA anytime soon. There are other fish to fry.

  • 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.

    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?

    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?
