  • Philip Morris: The Dividend Will Eventually Be At Risk [View article]
    Mr. Santos thank you for the well researched and written article. In time your view will come but in the meantime PM still is the best of the breed. Good Corporations find a way. Maybe PM will reorganized back to Altria. Thanks buy and hold for your valid points. I have been with PM and Mo for 30 years and as Fred Astaire said, "I grown accustomed to your smile."

  • Philip Morris - Why I'm Worried [View article]
    All your view points are warranted and hold a reverence for this stock. I remember 25 years ago I had the same insecurities about R.J.R. But kept accumulation it. With a family, budget was lean. I took the money, it was bought out by K.K.R.,Reinvested in P.M. And still have not sold P.M. As an ole stocker investor said to me, "as long as you have a job keep playing the game." In the end it all averages out. Fear will stifle your gains. Buy it periodically to average out. You are better off buying this stock, hanging on than purchasing that loser new car. Good luck to all.

  • Goldman Sachs upgrades Philip Morris (PM) to a Conviction Buy List rating. The firm calls the company the best combination of growth and yield amongst the large-cap consumer staples stocks. [View news story]
    I have owned all the tobacco stock since 1983! Each outpaced and outperformed all comparable stocks. Currently own PM which in my opinion is the best of breed. Simply stated if an investor wants to make real money there are few other stable choices. I will hold this stock until I die. GO PM!

  • Philip Morris: Intrinsic Value Of $106 Per Share And 27% Upside Potential (Plus A 4.5% Yield) [View article]
    If you have CASH and,or a mutual fund with a brokerage option buy these tobacco stocks. As PM and MO are the big gorillas it is wise to play these big boys. They always adjust to adverse situations for I have owned them since 1987.

  • Report: Reynolds American prepping for Lorillard bid [View news story]
    It will not happen. What are the benefits to RAI? Their debt load would double, dividend payout would be compromised and bank approval in doubt. Let alone the FDA hanging an AXE regarding the menthol issue. Anyone buying these stocks are chasing a pie in the sky. Big MO doesn't want any part of a tobacco buyout. Be smart!

  • Altria: A Rare Buying Opportunity For This Dividend Champ [View article]
    Good discussion on all views. I feel it is all about where an investor is in his or her financial life. At age 30 to 40's we are hungry to make big $$$ while trying to raise a family. At 50 we get a little smarter and start looking at the MO's and PM's. Then we retire, get conservative and over protect our gains by investing in bonds. The bond thing was my worst idea over all these Years. Now I have been aggressively buying good stocks with considerable risk but pose much better results. Stick long with MO and PM. At the right price invest a considerable amt. of your over the years gains!

  • How Healthy Is The Balance Sheet Of Philip Morris International? [View article]
    The object of Mr. Schaubert's article is to analyze each aspect of a Company's financial health. If this adds to its length then you need to go to a quicker mode of selection which may not yield the results you are looking for. Patience and knowledge make good investing. Thank you David for I have been an investor of tobacco since 1985.
    Well written and presented.

  • Deriving And Using A 'Rule Of 72' For Dividend Growth Reinvestors [View article]
    Arthur, you have it summarized. But I think all of these math experts get lost in heir funk because more booze generates less common sense. Paralysis by analysis.

  • Deriving And Using A 'Rule Of 72' For Dividend Growth Reinvestors [View article]
    But in real money this equation is moot. We cannot separate the initial cost, accumulated dividends,plus no cost to purchase and the final sale. Why make it complicated? Simply subtract final shares (sold $) from initial share dollar price Work on a Percentage basis; how much do I want to gain before getting slaughtered.

  • My Best Stock Idea For 2015 [View article]
    Dividend Mantra, thank you for the facts, your views and knowledge. Well written and casually presented. As a long time owner of PM, since 1980, never have I wavered on this fine stock. I loved this Company so much I never sold any shares. One exception when BIG MO spun off PM. At that time I choose PM over MO. Just kept rolling that "D" into new shares. Kudos to fellow shareholders who have done well! It is always nice to hear of success. Be patient and thanks to you PM members.
