  • Now At $50, Where Will Microsoft Shares Go From Here? [View article]
    Agree completely. If MSFT experiences a second coming, it will gain a premium just for that. That will be worth an extra 2-3 on the multiple alone.

  • The Fall In Oil Bears Watching Closely [View article]
    A lot of great food for thought in your posts, Michael Clark-thank you.

    I would offer that the reason we're really lost is that we still largely see certain other humans and corporations as more important than God. As long as these are in this order, we will only get more lost. People are inevitably selfish and fearful, and both always lead to being/getting lost. No zen thinking (not saying that's what you were suggesting btw) will save us. We can't do it without recognizing God's rightful place at the top.

    <Anyway, good article -- I'm just not sure oil is bottoming, considering the global economy is sinking deeper into depression,>

    I'm not sure the last part of what you said is true. What facts/figures constitute the global economy going into a depression??? Greece finally gets some good news, Germany squeaks by, and we are muddling along okay. Sure, the EZ is teetering on recession, but depression??? That sounds more like opinion and conjecture at this point in time.

  • Dividend Aristocrats In Focus Part 36: AFLAC [View article]
    Stock doesnt appear in a hurry to go anywhere or close the gap in valuation. I'd like to see mgmt raise the payout ratio and aim for a 3% dividend. They can afford it.

  • Yamana Gold may spin off some Brazilian assets, CEO says [View news story]
    I remember following AUY, AZM, and some others in the mid 2000s...when gold was going up and trading/holding PM stocks was fun and (mostly) profitable. I remember when AUY was at this price and Marrone was heralded as a fantastic CEO and blah blah blah how great he was gonna make Yamana over the ensuing years.

    Well, time has a way of humbling us all and here we are today. I've haven't owned shares in at least 6 years, but I bot @ $3.83 when I saw it was oversold recently. I don't plan on holding that long tho, as this stock is hardly a model of stability or comfort. I'm only looking to make a few bucks on a move back up, which may only be a small one in the short run.

  • Shell: What A Difference A Year Makes [View article]
    Good. Wasn't raggin' on you or makin fun of you. I'm a nitpicker I guess, but also thought I'd ask you to make sure.

    It is money, after all, and 150 shares of RDS.B is nothing to sneeze at (unless you're Buffett I guess).

    Agree completely. How long can they swing this high a dividend while only saying there are only minor problems w/ the co???

    That reeks of BS.
