  • Dividend Reinvestment Revisited: The Coca-Cola Millionaires [View article]
    This is a very good article and I think beneficial to young investors. Although the argument can be made for hindsight being 20/20 I think if you stay invested in companies with a wide moat, and long dividend history you should be fine. Just remember, there's only two things guaranteed in life (death & taxes). That being said, I'm a relatively young investor and although I sometimes feel my 17 shares of KO, or 13 shares of JNJ won't be much, as I continue to reinvest dividends and buy more shares it will turn into a nice chunk of money in the future. I started out purchasing relatively small amounts of stock (I have a 1k max now for new positions), but my first purchase was 8 shares of ABT before the split, and although it wasn't a lot of money (and people will jump on me about the commissions) it's worked out well and I know I will eventually add more and continue to reinvest those dividends. Everyone has their own philosophy on how to start out investing but I wouldn't let a commission get in the way of purchasing a stock I plan on holding for 50 years.

  • Boeing to inspect some 787 Dreamliners for wing cracks [View news story]
    This left out the fact that the wing problem wasn't Boeing's fault, it was their wing-maker who screwed up.

    "Boeing said Friday that discovery of a 787 Dreamliner manufacturing defect by wing-maker Mitsubishi Heavy Industries in Japan means 43 of the jets have to be inspected for small hairline cracks inside the wings."

  • Exxon Mobil Needs A Big Dividend Hike This Year [View article]
    Congrats Michael! You did what any great author on here tries to do, generate a rather heated debate. I don't own XOM, instead I own CVX, but I have thought about buying it. I can't say a yield of around ~2.6 would keep me from buying a stock because I think Exxon is more conservative with money compared to the other oils, but the lack of recent return definitely has been disappointing. I believe at some point in the near future with the underperformance of some oil majors they will spin-off to unlock value. Whether that's XOM, CVX, or BP I want a piece of those businesses for the long haul.

    I'd throw V into that financial mix and also DIS for earnings/dividend growth.

  • Chevron, With A High Yield And Growing Dividends, Will Reward Stockholders In 2014 [View article]
    This is one of the most comprehensive articles I think I've read on any company. Great job! I added some more CVX to my Roth this morning to double my position. It's overweight compared to the rest of my portfolio but in time I will even it out. Since I'm not able to take any money out of my IRA for another 40 years I am extremely confident CVX will reward me in many ways.

    Long & strong CVX!

  • Best Stocks For 2014 From The 'Honor Roll' Advisors [View article]
    Those four stocks are definitely very good to build a portfolio around. I have JNJ and DIS, and want to eventually add PEP and BRK.B. A few other interesting ones to add to that mix would be Visa or PG. It's my opinion, and this is directed towards torontom, that if you have a long horizon you can't go wrong buying these now and holding for 20-30 years while collecting dividends on some. Just my opinion. Thanks for the article.

  • Mr. Market Cannot Be Relied Upon To Provide Dependable REIT Income [View article]
    I've often wondered whether my timeframe of 40 years would be excellent for buying several REITs in my IRA and letting them compound for years. I'd say…yes :). Eventually I will, but with only six stocks in it (one being O) I can't decide whether I should overweight REITs now since it appears to be a relatively good time to get in, or buy GIS/WAG even though they are trading at or above their fair value. I've looked at buying VTR, STAG, ARCP and getting the compounding process going. I was curious to get other peoples opinions on this. I will eventually buy GIS,WAG and other reliable blue chips just wondering if now would be a good time to go overweight REITs and try to buy the blue chips later on or vice versa. Thanks.

  • Is Now The Time To Buy National Oilwell Varco? [View article]
    I just came across this stock a week or so ago and really like what I see. I believe it would fit perfectly my Chevron, KMI (transportation), PSX (refining), and now the possibility of NOV will add to another part of the process with their drilling equipment and other segments. Looking to add once I build up a cash position.

  • I Hit Apple's Last Two Quarters EPS Results: Here Are My December Quarter Projections [View article]
    So you don't think the 5C has no buyers because people would rather own the better phone for a couple hundred more dollars? That's been my take away. I'd love to see some data behind your assumption that people no longer upgrade anymore.

  • Apple: Too Many Upside Catalysts For The Stock To Go Down [View article]
    Look for an increase in the dividend announced either Monday or in the near future as well. Apple is becoming a great DG stock. With the new dividend that will also create a floor.

  • Buy Verizon On Nice EPS Setup And Fantastic Valuation [View article]
    I probably don't check up on VZ as much as I should. I consider it a strong company with a wide moat and the best in their business. I look forward to seeing how the Vodafone deal enhances their stock performance in the next 10 years. Thank you for the article.

    Long VZ

  • Kinder Morgan Energy Partners' Unexpected Move Into Tankers Is Savvy Investment [View article]
    I use an app but it doesn't sync with Google Calendar, however, it is very easy to use and accurate. It's called "My Dividends" on the iTunes App Store, not sure if it's on other phones. You can add your entire portfolio and it tells you the amount, ex-dividend, pay date, etc.

  • Cramer's Mad Money - 2014 Dow Predictions (1/2/14) [View article]
    He meant splitting up the company into chemical, refining and e&p…so 3 separate companies (I think). Unless I listened to it wrong. Nothing mentioned about it but it has to have been discussed.

    Thanks for the article. For everything you stated in your last paragraph that's why I am planning to buy soon. I'd love to open a position around 42-45.

    Long CVX as well.
