  • Ensco Plc.: Adding A High-Yielding Dividend Stock To My Portfolio [View article]
    Maybe waiting for the tax-loss selling to abate would be a good idea; afterwards sell some Jan or Feb puts at a price you would accept the shares? just a thought.

  • Why I Closed Out My Gold Short [View article]
    mmmm! do the above-referenced comments relating to diminished fears of possibilities of terrorist attacks here in the U.S. imply a growing complacency among us that we will regret down the road??? Or, just maybe that an attack is still possible though,gosh, not during our cherished holiday season!! Just a thought, Happy Holidays, everyone......

  • Are You Preparing For $10,000 Gold? [View article]
    Avi: Good read, thanks for your insights; maybe my NEM will survive the crisis; but at 73 having to wait another 10 years may be a bit "dicey" for me. But, who cares when your in the 'nursing-home' and my heirs tell me what a wonderful investment NEM was; I'll have no idea what they are talking about!!!

  • Bet Against S&P Risk By Investing In Volatility [View article]
    J: yes, past 'Bear-trap Reversals' in SPX have almost destroyed any further attempts by me to short this market. Having been beat over the head with most of my past inverse ETF purchases being stopped out, I refuse to bet against Janet any longer.... unless of course SPX sinks to 1790... then maybe.....

  • LTC's Sweet Monthly Dividend Is Icing On The Cake [View article]
    The Unknown.... I strongly agree with you about how understaffed 'assisted living' facilities are. My mother lived in one and rarely did they have enough staff to help her in her daily living activities!! I had to continuously complain to management about the almost total lack of 'assistance'..... yet, this was a very expensive institution. After checking into other assisted living facilities in the area, they were equally understaffed.... bottom line profit for the owners appears to be much more of a priority that client-care.... hope I never have to be placed in one.... better to follow the ol' American Indian practice of leaving their old ones out of Teepee on cold night!! I'm Teepee shopping right now...

  • McDonald's: Negative Consumer Reviews Could Put Dividend Growth At Risk [View article]
    Ruby... I agree with your assessment of MCD patrons; hard, working class folks who just want some "grubb" to keep em' going on the job here in LA (lower Alabama). Most here would believe 'pate de foie gras' would be something one would spread on their lawn to make the grass grow!!!!!
