  • Gilead Will Keep On Rolling [View article]
    Investors won't wait till 2017 to buy (more of) the stock. It's very likely that most of the pps appreciation will have occurred before then, %-wise anyway.

    Added for my uncle at $113.5 yesterday and may do so again if it goes below $113.

    Unless Greece, China, etc. push the market significantly lower, I'm looking for the $112-113 to hold.

  • Plains All American Pipeline declares $0.695 dividend [View news story]
    I was half kidding, meaning that OF COURSE they will survive. I think for them to announce a decent increase as the fines, litigation, penalties, etc haven't even gotten started is a very good sign.

    I'd buy some if I had some extra dry powder in my taxable.

  • Philip Morris Will Continue Its Streak Of Dividend Hikes This September [View article]
    HanYOLO,

    I agree with your first point but disagree with your second.

    Look at this chart:

    That doesn't look like the $USD has topped to me, only that it pulled back and looks to be going higher again. If it stalls at $100 and heads back down, then you may be right, but it's too early to tell at this point.

  • Philip Morris Will Continue Its Streak Of Dividend Hikes This September [View article]
    Agree with those above who said $1.04 will be new div. I also say that the reality of them only barely raising the div will create better buying opp to add or start a position.

    My wife's IRA held PM from 3/11 till this past spring but I traded it for MO. I see the currency drama lasting longer than many predict, and I'm steering clear until something closer to a 15 multiple (or better) for the stock.

    I think they will survive the spill drama.

    Gary:

    If you can't get them to stop sending you their crap, mark the next one you get as 'SPAM' and all the rest should be sent directly there (hopefully).

  • 50/50 Portfolio (BDCs And mREITs) High Yield 10%, H1 2015 Update [View article]
    Mike:

    I like to read BDC Buzz and Scott Kennedy's articles on BDC's. A lot of it's too intricate (and, much as I hate to admit it, over my head) for most people, but there is still a lot of great info to be learned/gleaned from their insights and observations. They're like scientists...the way they break down each BDC.

    I rec Brad Thomas for REITs. He's honest, responds to comments, and knows his stuff inside and out. He makes REITs much easier to understand.

  • Consequences Of The Greek Referendum May Severely Hit Global Markets [View article]
    Perhaps this 'Greek drama' will be the impetus that the markets have been seeking to correct and bring valuations down closer to their LT averages.

    At first, you made it seem that Greece leaving would be good, but then your discussion explains why that may ultimately be bad for the Euro and bad for the rest of Europe, and that finding a way for Greece to stay in the EZ would be best. Good food for thought-thanks.

    Finally, and (let's face it) most importantly to me, I'm in 25% cash in my 401k (my largest account), so I'm ready for the summer swoon and ready to take a short term hit to my account total in order to buy back in the 1950-2000 range going into the fall. Let's do this!!
