  • My 4% Dividend Yield Portfolio: AT&T, Yield On Cost, Dividend Yield And Dividend Growth Rate [View article]
    Absolutely agree. One must remember that investing is about the FUTURE; i.e. It is about the answer to the question : How much is my money going to earn me?
    Your YoC is the answer based on history to the query : "How much I made on my Investment."
    Whether it is better or not to keep that stock in your portfolio has nothing to do with its YoC, but it has everything to do with whether or not it will have a higher yield or not in the future everything else being equal compared to another stock.

  • Let's Talk About Corporate Fraud [View article]
    I find it hard to believe that only 14.5% of firms commit fraudulent acts, as my experience would indicates differently. I know of companies that even brag "how creative" the finance or control manager is in meeting "their numbers". Most ask for a 10% improvement in performance from year to year. Every effort is made by many to reach this goal. This means that results will double in a few years, since this is not possible in most cases, we always have the year of the "clean up", where "extraordinary charges", divestments; changes in accounting; etc. are needed to correct the unrealistic state of the accounts.
    As I believe this practice is very generalized, I sometimes wonder how it may affects the cyclical economic health of the country, the stock market; etc.

  • Follow Buffett Out Of Exxon Mobil? Not A Chance [View article]
    One would think that XOM stands tall as an investment by itself.
    No need to worry what Tillerson says; or what Buffett does.
    "Investing" is not just one company. In terms of investment guidance, you seem to think that better to listen to Tillerson than Buffet? Wrong!
    As CEO's. will you follow CEO Tillersons or CEO Buffet?
    Which do you think is a better choice to buy today - XOM or Berkshire?

  • Philip Morris Vs. Altria Group Continues To Track The Dollar [View article]
    It would seem as Altria will not be affected by the dollar rise as it continues to report in the same dollar currency, but PMI will drop because of the drop in values of the currencies in which it does business when translated to dollars for SEC reporting.

  • ExxonMobil Is Smart To Stay In Russia [View article]
    I did not mean to say that, as at times Exxon's policies yield a better result to promote the best interest of this country than that of our own government.
    Most of these important decisions are debatable inside corporations and governments. As a good leader, one would expect Mr. Tillerson to yield to the majority or to the recommendation of those better informed on the issues at hand.
    PS. I owned Xom stock, but sold it to take in the profit, as I feel it is now overvalued Will buy again, when and if it dips?

  • ExxonMobil Is Smart To Stay In Russia [View article]
    You are probably right in much of what you said; nevertheless, not to be naive, but realistic, if American and European oil companies had not made large commitments to places with no rule of law (Middle East, Venezuela) over half a century ago, the world would not have been able to grow, as it has, because of lack of oil.
    Probably we would have suffered from more wars.
    In mid-20th century, most of us would not have been willing to risk an advance to the Sheik of Saudi Arabia against future oil deliveries.
    Today Aramco is both the largest company in the world and the most valuable corporation worldwide.

  • ExxonMobil Is Smart To Stay In Russia [View article]
    You should understand that Exxon thinks and conducts itself pretty much as if it were another country government; maybe as powerful as the USA.
    Accordingly, they will delineate policy along the lines of first : their self-interest as either an American; or a multinational corporation; whichever is more rewarding.

  • Whole Foods Market Is Undervalued [View article]
    Long term not all is rosy for WF, one should also consider the following negatives :
    1. WF competitors are in the process of selling more "natural-organic" products; which is an icon at the core of WF marketing, as it proves easy to duplicate.
    2. WF is aggressively pushing their lower price generic brand "365" and depriving customer of choices and in many's opinion also of quality.
    3. WF 365 brands should lower their total revenue $'s, and total$ profits.
    4. Top management/owners incursion into "politics", as writing a book on Capitalism, as is viewed by many who sees management as the leaders of a Hippie oriented work-force, has had a negative PR effect as related by some in the media.
    5. Conflicting messages as the luxury of new stores (NYC Broadway) vs. "generic "365" brand merchandising.
