  • Ford Motor: OK, This Is Just Stupid  [View article]
    i had the exact opposite experience in my company. i had about a dozen rangers, 5 f-150's, and a f-250. those things got way over 200,000 miles. and all i ever did to them was oil changes. my guys drove them rough i'm sure as well.
    my personal 1998 f-150 flareside was the absolute best vehicle i ever owned. i still miss it. my current 2009 f-150, only has 29,000 miles. its a nice truck. but i don't like how they are jacked up to make them look bigger. and the back windshield leaks, and i can't stop it. can you believe it?

    thats not how it works at all.

    as for people wanting to live off dividends. we are in a new paradigm for all dividend stocks. did you see duke energy go from 65.70 to 77 in about 3 or 4 weeks? imagine how the dividend yield rose then fell. you can't just sit back and safely collect a 5% yield anymore. thats junk bond status. people need to learn, go to a discount broker, and start doing more active management of their portfolios. selling options, be it calls or puts should be a strategic and vital part of your investment strategy. like i said, the 10 year is 1.83. i could see negative rates in the u.s. in a year. times have changed. you have to change with it.

    its just not that simple. the 10 year is now 1.83. people bought this stock when the dividend was probably 3-4%. they have to worry about putting groceries on the table. i could give a couple of more examples of why a strategy of keepig the dividend is a sound strategy. but this addresses your snarky remark about telling income seekers to buy bonds. why don't you buy google or apple?

  • Which Is The Better 8% Oil Dividend Stock - ConocoPhillips Or BP?  [View article]
    just last week i sold bp 38.50 puts expiring 1/22 for .42 a share. i'm probably going to do it again. today.

    the week before, i sold 29. strike puts for .17 a share. so thats .55 a share on bp for 2 weeks.

    on shell, i own the stock already. so i am selling calls. i am not selling them for february. i am guarding them so that they can't get called the day before the ex date. but i usually get anywhere from between .25 to up over a dollar a share selling calls on them almost every month. but you can see that weeklys have better potential to make more. and as i said earlier, sometimes its hard to even sell options on rds because of such low volume on the B shares.
    its not hard.
    jmp and wfc are pretty good stocks to sell options on as well.

    i was just wondering, did sto used to be wholly owned by the private sector? and when the norwegian gov't took 70%, did they pay share holders a fair price? did they tax the proceeds? or did the gov't put 70% of the money in the company right from the start? i'm just wondering because what if they decided they wanted 80,90, 100% of the company.

    day trading is no more gambling than the excuse for losing money, which is "we're in it for the long term".

    the only thing i don't like about shell is the options are horrible, they are monthlys, with a 2.50 range between strike prices, and not much volume at all. i make more money selling calls and puts than stock appreciation and dividends.

    plus ford builds better vehicles and produces them cheaper. ford has better management which did not drive them into bankruptcy and being half owned by unions.

    Where do you find the S&P P/E ratio? I thought it was more in the 17 range. But I can never find a place that shows it

    i'm neither a bull nor a bear concerning cop. but the stock price falling doesn't in and of itself determine if the dividend is sustainable

  • Plains All American downgraded at Oppenheimer, which sees few good options  [View news story]
    they just said said a week ago, they didn't need to cut their dividend. of course the former ceo of bac, said he would cut off his right arm before he would cut the dividend. he still has his right arm.
    the ceo of dow chemical said dow would never cut as long as he was ceo. he is still ceo.
