  • 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.

    But Lucky, the one thing that confuses me about this war against unhealthy eating is the effect it has on the human body. Now, McDonalds has been around for a long time and has dished out an awful lot of fries and burgers. One would think a bad diet would result in a shortened life span. That would be the ultimate price paid for those fries and burgs. But government records show that the lifespan for the avg. American male is now 84.3 years and 86.6 years for females. My question is if the American diet is so unhealthy, why are we living longer in spite of it? It does'nt seem to make sense. Maybe that big mack isn't so bad after all. Check out the social security stats on life span.

  • Why It's Hard To Be Optimistic About Chevron [View article]
    Here is another aspect of the oil situation that I feel is conspicuously missing. What about Federal oil reserves. With oil being so cheap at this time, what has the government been doing with its oil reserves? Have they been buying it up at low prices? What is the current state of government oil reserves? Are we filled to the gills or carrying a minimal amount of reserves? I can remember in the past when there were oil shortages and the price was sky high, the government would release oil reserves into the economy to help stabilize the situation. I don't hear anything about that any more. Does anyone have an idea what our government is currently doing with oil reserves? And does or can it play a significant role in the current oil situation? Just curious. Anyone have any thoughts?

    Casey, I just can't see the price of oil remaining in the $40's for a couple more years. With summer around the corner and increased travel, oil consumption normally jumps and the price at the pumps jump considerably. I would suspect a jump in oil demand and the price of oil is'nt that far away. In any case I'm betting now is a pretty good time to start averaging into stocks like XOM, CVX et al. That is what I've been doing.

  • Annaly Capital Management: It's Time To Demand Repurchasing Shares And Special Dividends [View article]
    Todd, whether or not he is a shareholder is irrelevant. Whether he is right or not is. What we need to do is look at the method of compensation upper management receives. Are they more rewarded by not committing to a buyback? Would it be more in their personal interest to do the opposite at the expense of shareholders? Those are the things you should be seriously considering. Maybe some poster can shed light on that.

  • 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.

    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.
