  • Is Duke Energy A Buy At Current Levels? [View article]
    if crist becomes gov. duke energy will be fine. i was kind of hoping they would break a few more power plants. especially since they make a profit from doing it.

  • Is Duke Energy A Buy At Current Levels? [View article]
    duk is my largest single position also. i love the company. i love the leadership, although the new ceo is still in trial phase as far as i am concerned. she handled the coal ash spill magnificently imo. A+ so far.
    the worst thing about duk to me is, they have reduced the size of increases in their dividends pretty substantially the last several years.

  • AT&T misses by $0.01, misses on revenue [View news story]
    right now T is not even down 2%. plus if you buy now, you are only going to get one dividend payment for all of 2014. many stocks still have 2 left to pay. T has had a 2 or 3% runnup lately. let it fall back to mid 34.?? range and i will buy some

  • Southern Company: A Defensive Utility Stock [View article]
    when interest rates rise, utilities usually do fall in price. but they are not bonds. their price will come back up with increased business revenue, and increased dividends. increasing interest rates usually mean increased business activity which means increased revenue for utilities.

  • JPMorgan: Poised To Outperform While Yielding 3% [View article]
    several quick things.
    1. is jpm the green on the chart comparing to S&P? (the bottom line?)
    2. i don't know if this is true or not, but i read an article a few months ago, which claimed that for some reason, jpm always fell after earnings announcements. even when they beat. i have been trading jpm for 2 years. if my memory serves, that has been true for 2 years at least.
    3. does anyone know when they announce? they changed things around this quarter, and won't be first.

  • Duke Energy: Staying Bullish As The Company Raises Its Dividend [View article]
    duk is my biggest holding, and the only one i never sell. (my cap gains tax would be outrageous).
    i just want to add that you can sell covered call options on your shares, and make a nice extra profit. i do it every month except ex date months. for some reason duk has an ex date within a day or 2 of option expiration. it drives me batty.
    but duk has the best call premiums of any utility i know of. i highly suggest selling covered calls on duk

  • Is Exelon A Buy? [View article]
    i have a hard and fast rule concerning whether to invest in a company or not. when a ceo of a company tells you the company is not going to cut the dividend. then 2 or 3 months later announces a deep dividend cut, i don't invest in that company any longer. ever. but thats just me

  • Con Ed Provides Income, Safety, And - Surprise! - Price Appreciation Potential [View article]
    you make some really good points .
    i like con ed. but i am staying out now because
    1. they couldn't offer guidance for the cost due to the gas explosion
    2. they were denied any rate increase this year. it seems all the north eastern states have hostile relationships with their utility companies. citizens gripe about outdated infrastructure, but won't allow price increases to pay for it.
