    I feel that the writers of these SA articles should ALWAYS include the companies' ex dividend dates coming up. Thank you for this tidbit, Stocks for the long run.

  • Apple And American Express - A Match Made In Heaven [View article]
    Narrow back--take a reality check. I'm talking about retailers in Europe not willing to accept Amex cards for payment. Regardless of how almighty smart you think you are. Reality check might start with grabbing a hold of your ears...oh, never mind. Happy traveling in Europe with just your platinum Amex. Besides this whole back and forth is pointless. I will always give way to density and a closed mind.

  • Apple And American Express - A Match Made In Heaven [View article]
    Narrowback, there may be millions of Amex cards in use, but from personal experience in had better have a backup card here, and this means shops, hotels and restos. Your snooty "really" does not do you credit --so to speak. BTW-- my comments do not mean to detract from my being a huge AAPL fan.

  • Apple And American Express - A Match Made In Heaven [View article]
    Hardly any businesses accept American Express cards. During transactions would the client be forced to deal with pop-ups offering the latest in killer Apps? If one has a credit card attached to a bank account, how would Apple's system be more convenient? It just seems a bit strange for this huge company entering into this field. It smacks of more intrusiveness than anything else far.

  • Why Altria Investors Shouldn't Panic Over Declining Smoking [View article]
    Ocamsrazor, hang on to your intuitions. I nice had several hundred employees that worked in our pressroom (printing newspapers and advertising inserts). We were offering 500 dollars to those who would quit smoking. Can you guess how many takers we had in 20 years? We had TWO, and they were brothers who had bet each other who would quit successfully. They both did. The usual response was, Hey, I can quit coke, marijuana, crack...all that, but not cigarettes.

  • Pfizer: Prescription For A Strong Dividend Yield [View article]
    I think both Cassandra's comments and the most recent by Subhash are very appropriate. Otoh what a snob piece of work is richjoy, putting me and others down for essentially being new to this world. I think the pieces of information I asked about should have been included in the article. And if richjoy knows so much, why bother to read these scribblings of lesser human critters?

  • Update: Johnson & Johnson Received FDA's Class I Label For Jaw-Stabilizing Device [View article]
    Can someone tell us if JNJ's relationship with DePuy Synthes will be an ongoing negative to the JNJ price? Or is there a positive side once the recall is in the past?

    And while clarifying the pipeline situation, could you also clear up the expiration of patents that might affect stock price or profitability?

  • Does Wal-Mart Still Hit The Spot As An Income Stock? [View article]
    Do the board members of WMT read these articles? That's another way of asking what is the likelihood of WMT's raising the dividend or the payout?

  • Apple's iWatch Is A Game Changer [View article]
    We, none of us, don't know what this wearable will do. And yet I am thinking it will be very big, even revolutionary. There are several non invasive technologies out there to determine your body's inflammation, glucose level, lung capacity, organ functions, heart rate and other functions. If this gizmo does the medical things plus normal watch and GPS functions, it will fly off the shelves. I am not even mentioning connecting you with your computer, pads and pods, as well as those of your doctor! Waterproof is necessary even if only for perspiration. I once ruined a heart monitor because it was not waterproof, and if was just running. I have today increased my AAPL holdings. Hey, iGizmo ain't a bad name.

  • Apple: Sell The Stock On September 9th [View article]
    I guess no one in the public sector really knows what will be included in the iWatch, but I am betting on a probably explosive effect it will have on the stock price--and I mean upwards. I think that AAPL will once again put itself in the driver's seat of the whole tech world. Read: revolutionary. I am not selling.
