  • GoDaddy prices IPO at $20; valuation above $3B [View news story]
    I'm confused, maybe someone can help me. So GoDaddy is just a web domain company similar to a Wix or Wordpress minus the website customization bit?

  • 5 Reasons Why Phillips 66 Had A Blowout Quarter [View article]
    I'm glad I picked this up at 58 when I could. It was way too cheap and I got tired of all the chicken littles running away from every company associated with oil. Guess that was a mistake for some companies.

  • Ventas Is Continuing To Build A Powerful Brand Of Dividend Repeatability [View article]
    Brad, great article. I was reading your piece you wrote about creating a REIT portfolio for your hs daughter. I noticed you didn't include any of your healthcare favorites such as OHI or VTR. I do understand it's not as easy for a high schooler to relate to companies that own nursing homes or hospitals as opposed to shopping centers. I'm a sophomore in college and want to add one of those but I can't really afford both at this moment. What would you suggest for someone so young that wants to stick it in an IRA and has 40 years? I view VTR as more stable, well known blue-chip, but it has a lower yield. OHI has a better yield and I think offers a greater risk reward. Overall, they are both great companies and it would be great to own both, but I'd like to hear anyones opinions that feel like offering them up. The only other REIT I own is O.

  • Why Celgene Stock Is Still A Good Investment Opportunity [View article]
    Very nice article. I came across Celgene earlier in the year when my father was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. He was put on a clinical trial and the main drug he is receiving is Abraxane along with Gemzar (Eli Lily). He was originally told he had at most 6 months to live, but 7 months we just found out last week the cancer is not growing and has actually regressed a little. We know eventually the time will come, but I am one proud shareholder of Celgene for buying my family a little more time!

    All the best,

  • Young Investors: Let Compounding Do Its Work [View article]
    Good job on getting started at 24, I share many of your similar picks. One word of a advice I've learned from being around here is, make a plan that works for you, cut out everyone else's noise. People have good intentions but don't always know your situation or goals. Good luck!

  • Why Activision Blizzard Stock Is A Good Investment Right Now [View article]
    The launch of Call of Duty Advanced Warfare will be an interesting one to say the least. According to some gaming websites I've read, many people think Advanced Warfare looks more like a combination of Halo and Titanfall rather than previous games that made the franchise what it is today and it has turned some people off. I don't have an opinion, haven't played it yet, but it does have a different type of feel to it than the previous ones. The question asked by Dr. Joseph Haluska is an interesting one. This can be said for practically any company around (Apple, Google, etc.) but one thing that concerns me is innovation and whether or not the company can remain popular. Video games can be so hit or miss and all it takes is for a company to release a poor version of a popular franchise game before they start to lose customers. Would ATVI be a good hold for 20-40 years? That's a tough call, if you say yes you are assuming they continue to churn out very successful games. I love video games, I play Call of Duty all the time so I'm not trying to bash just ATVI. The same could be said for EA or TTWO. Just something to think about.

    Thanks for the article!

    Brad, do you still own ACC for your kids? I've recently discovered them through a major facility that is being built downtown near me and wanted to get your thoughts on the company/stock now.

  • Get Rich Slowly: 5 Stocks To Get You Started [View article]
    jj - Yes, because let's go back to 2012 when I first opened my IRA and made a majority of those purchases. If you sold these near the top (when I bought them), boy, would you look like a fool right now.

    PSX from the spin-off of COP so far is a 128% gain
    V (9/12/12) is up 60%
    ABT up ~36% not including the ABBV spin-off which is up 56%.
    CVX, JNJ, and PG are only up about 20-30% since I purchased so oh well.
    KO 12% gain...shucks
    KMI is about break even so kudos to you
    GILD (7/11/13) $55.85 - $82.39 up 43%.

    I guess you wouldn't consider those gains significant enough for two years of investing, but those buys certainly weren't the top...I never said I just bought all of these yesterday.

  • Get Rich Slowly: 5 Stocks To Get You Started [View article]
    Michael, I just started investing in 2012 at 18 and I value your commitment to getting more young investors interested. I like all your picks, but the only one I own out of the five is KO. I definitely lean towards the DG approach with stocks such as CVX, JNJ, PG, PSX, KO and ABT but also focus on growth stocks since I am so young (V, GILD, KMI could be considered a DG stock, and AAPL) and also a few value plays. My view is that while the market may be at all time highs there is still good value and at my age I am not throwing thousands of dollars at the market so I consider my approach to be getting a good basis and strong hold for my portfolio and in the future when I have a full-time job and more money I can examine my portfolio and go from there.

  • A Review Of The Dividend Safety Superstars [View article]
    Great work Bob! Your articles always make me go back and reexamine stocks I previously thought were overvalued or that I tend to just skip over.

    "Each stock incurred no more than two down years during this turbulent 12 yr. period."

    Although the past is not an indicator of future results some may say, I found this very interesting. I look forward to part two!

  • Why Apple Is The Perfect Stock For Anyone [View article]
    It's nice to see all these positive articles out now on Apple and this one was fantastic. I bought in a few years ago at $590 and have held on through definitely some tough drops and negative news articles but I remain confident in Apple's vision and brand. A lot of my friends still have the 4/4s and are looking forward to the release of the 6 this fall. The next few years should be very interesting for Apple, and I am looking forward to being apart of that.

  • PetSmart Has A 35% Upside Right Now [View article]
    There's two things I'd like to chime in on and say that I don't think Amazon can replicate, the PetHotel and training programs. I aways see new pet owners when I go in who are not familiar with many of the things that go along with owning a pet and PetSmart is very good with getting their business in many ways. There is something nice in knowing that if you go on vacation you can count on a trusted well-known company instead of some random local company around town that you might not be as familiar with. When we first got our lab puppy about 5 years ago, we went through the training programs and were pleased with everything and we still go to PetSmart this day and drop him off at Doggie Day Camp or the PetHotel when we go on vacation and even get him groomed there sometimes. It's definitely a one stop shop, and that's what makes it so convenient. However, as others have said, toys, treats, and food are extremely expensive. I went today to look around and a rawhide bone (medium size) was $20...that's outrageous to me, especially since it was made in China. I don't have a problem paying a little more (but others do) to know that it is made in America and is a lot less likely to have some negative affect on my animal.

  • Apple may make largest acquisition with $3.2B Beats deal [View news story]
    "Dre and his co-founder Jimmy Iovine, who together control 75 percent of the company, intend to get Beats not just onto our heads but into our homes and automobiles by expanding into “speakers, audio systems in cars and consumer electronics, and a soon-to-be-launched online streaming music service,” as the WSJ reported.
    According to a recent piece in the Wall Street Journal, Beats revenues increased fivefold between 2010 and 2012 alone, hitting the $1 billion mark. As of this summer, some 59 percent of high-end headphones sold in the U.S. bear the Beats logo."

    That might be a clue?
