  • Apple: The Final Countdown Clock Has Started [View article]
    I am sensing a lot of interest in Spain for the iWatch. Will be interesting to see if this translates into purchases, or mere tire-kicking.

    Neat comment, Interventizio, but forgot to say how great the CMG divided is. Just another incentive to buy!

    Well said, Bones. What the heck does DB know anyway. Within one year they will be eating both of their left feet. Long SDRL and considering RIG.

  • I'm Not Selling Anything, I'm Buying Everything [View article]
    Way to put this method out there. I've only been learning this game for two years and I have come--at last -- to your way of investing. Exactly.

  • The Curious Case Of BUD [View article]
    I have had BUD on my wish (watch) list for some time. At what price level do you think BUD will become a slam dunk purchase. My own limited thinking is that this point is very nearly upon us. Is its PE a critical item in determining purchase?

  • The Day The Trend Changed... Or Not [View article]
    Sitting and watching may be the wisest thing many of us will do while the market sorts itself out and perhaps offers some attractive entry points to many of our watched stocks. If it is indeed wise, it will be a first for me. BTW, nice tone in this article. I look forward to following more of SMs work.

  • Why It's Hard To Buy The Hershey Company [View article]
    I loved this article because it reflects a very basic truth about both investors and HSY. I did own HSY a few years back and did something stupid: sold it after a 20% gain. Been looking back ever since and may become an owner again very soon (and holder).
    I wonder if contributor Cassandra can share with us some of what she SEES, especially about market trends or anything else.

  • I'm Not Selling Anything, I'm Buying Everything [View article]
    I will confess to having triggered this recent "correction" of the markets. My rule that always works is simple: when I buy a stock, it will go down the next day. If I buy five stocks the whole market will go down. [The opposite is also a valid rule for me: sell a stock and it will go up.]

    I bought five stocks on July 31. Nuff said.

    But I have funds in reserve because I am looking for bargains when PEs and prices get affordable again, the sooner the better.

    I have learned the hard way about selling out and then watching the sold stocks go soaring. I have now a plan; it is solid and based largely on large stable dividend payers and growers. I am not panicked by Bear markets. And I do not know what my panic level would be, but with the kind of companies in my portfolio, I think it would de difficult to reach it.

    BTW, i thought the article was good, but the grammar in the caveat section where the author is said to have written the article "themselves," well it is to gag for.

    I apologise for adding to the "noise."

  • Seadrill: Is This 10%-Yielder A Good Investment? [View article]
    ...the illusion of knowledge...

    Why that is one of the most brilliant things I've ever heard (or seen). It fits so many people I know. Or maybe my brain is not letting me know that I don't really know them.

    Thanks, Hardog

  • Coca-Cola And PepsiCo: Don't Let Short-Term Price Affect Your Long-Term Judgment [View article]
    I am traveling in Spain currently. Every table at the numerous outdoor caf├ęs is usually weighed down with Coke products. I rarely see a Pepsi here. The gyms stock chilled Aquarius and one of the best selling bottled mineral waters is made by Coke, as are the ubiquitous Fanta products. Very comforting to a KO stockholder.
