  • One More Stock To Build A Retirement Portfolio Upon At Any Age [View article]
    A little scary for me, but I do own O,HCP,NLY. However, I'm trying to ease out of NLY & waiting for a little bump in share price. Picked up O a while back for around $38. One of my better moves. Good luck investing.

  • Sorry Big Mac, It's Going To Take Plenty More To Change This Company [View article]
    Wow. That's some harsh criticism. Honestly, I'll go to MCD now and then and get a burger and fries. It seemed OK to me. Maybe you just had a bad experience.

    Well, I read most of the posts, and it took a while. I've got to admit my faith in MCD is shaken. Own 300 shares @ $96.98 so will have to take a hit if I sell. That just kills me. But I don't feel comfortable enough holding the stock either. Will have to make a decision Monday. Will be interesting to see what RS is proposing today. Currently own most of the FMBP portfolio.

    I would suspect $80 is more realistic.

  • Online signs of strong demand for 2015 F-150 [View news story]
    Well I've got a 2008 F-150, 4-door, V8, 96,000 miles. Nice truck. I've owned 5 or 6 new F-150's. Really liked them all. Waiting to see what the 2015 truck looks like. Will definitely be buying a truck. However, I was around 150 miles outside of home last Friday driving along when my dash lit up with transmission fault and the blinking 'O/D OFF' light on. Well, I managed to get back to the Ford dealership near my town and dropped it off. They're going to fix it. That is, for $3,714 plus tax. Asked what they would give me in trade for a new truck. Best they would do is $8,000 as is. $11,000 if I fixed the transmission. Moral of the story? I get clobbered either way. So when you say pickup trucks can be found on many wish lists for a wide variety of purposes, it is not just a combination of features, advantages and benefits. Its also past experience. And right now I'll be eating four grand. Won't say I'm not buying a Ford next time, but for the first time in decades, I'll be looking at the other trucks before I buy. Not just because of the transmission, but because of the meager trade value they placed on my truck that had a sticker value of around $36M 6 years ago.

  • Retirement Strategy: Avoiding The Pitfalls Of Fear And Winning The 'Game' [View article]
    AS, you appear to be pretty solid financially, but maybe just a little lonely. I think maybe a "Special Other" might be just the ticket for you. On your next trip to the library, look around a little. Your solution might be sitting just across from you. You sound like a really good person. I wish you the best.

    AS10675, just put the wife to work, maintain a quality dividend paying stock portfolio and enjoy the pension check when it arrives each month, not to mention the social security check. You'll be alright. Forget about getting a job. I also retired in 1995 and never looked back. However, I do the dishes and all the laundry. Also feed the pets. I guess everything comes with a price. :>D

    How about hanging out at a coke machine? I never knew anybody that hung out at a coke machine. That's not just silly, that's ridiculous.

  • Ford Q3 2014 Review: North America Losing Pricing Power [View article]
    All I can say is, Ford's high margin F-150 has gotten ahead of itself. Used to be, you could buy one with very adequate accessories for somewhere between $25M & $30M. At least you could when I bought my last one in 2008. That same truck today will probably cost between $30M to $35M and up. Its pricing itself out of customer range. I'm not saying the truck won't sell, but its not going to have the volume sales it used to. Ford will have to start using gimmicks like big rebates & such to move the inventory and that will translate to lower margins. And of course, that will translate to lower share price. Most truck owners don't buy them to necessarily haul big stuff. They buy them because they were a more affordable alternative and practical at the same time. They're still practical, but they sure aren't affordable. I would be careful about buying Ford stock, let alone the Ford truck. Just my opinion.

    Cparmerlee, surely you aren't suggesting that your way is the only way to successfully invest in stocks. If your way was proven to be the most efficient and effective way to invest, you would be right up there with Buffet by now. Would you not agree? As a matter of fact, so would most investors. You'd make more money selling your method than you would from investing in the Market. I think you're being a little too critical in your posts. Don't forget, there's more than one way to skin a cat. I like RS's careful approach to investing. If you think owning 50 or more stocks is the key requisite to sensible investing, then be my guest. I think 20 or so solid dividend paying stocks will do just fine for an investor, and with a lot less stress. So far, its working pretty good for me.

    I have to admit, the fear factor crept in a few times in the last couple weeks and I was tempted to sell. I managed to overcome the urge and even picked up more shares of a PFE, CVX & GE. The BTDP lives on and the journey continues. RS, thanks for your above article. It was a great pep talk.
