  • AT&T: The Safety Of Coke With A Higher Return [View article]
    Have to agree biobat. The prior adminstrations put events into motion that are still being felt today. We were headed into a hole no matter who won in '08.

  • 12 Dividend Stocks Capable Of Weathering Storms For Decades [View article]
    < I like VOD too but I was trying to stick with American companies.>

    Gotta make an exception for PM :)

    JNJ too, and where's PG??? COP has better divs & DG, so XOM is out imo. INTC for divs & DG too. MCD & KO are great co's, but pricey to me right now.

    Disc: Long PM, INTC, COP, and dry powder for the more downside ahead

  • PG&E: When The Dividend Growth Will Resume [View article]
    PG&E is largely hated here in CA, fwiw. From the consumer watchdogs to voters, they are not liked.

  • Here's How To Get Sustainable 7% Dividend Yields When Markets Crash [View article]
    < they would be even happier>

    Not with an advisor who's petty and rude. They'd take their money elsewhere.

    Ben,

    I think comparing the two is akin to what jarco mentions. KO strikes me as the more nimbler of the two behemoths, able to stretch out further into the future with more realistic growth possiblities, though nothing like the past imo.

    T reminds me of a fat, old grandmother rocking on the porch who gives you $ every time you visit her :) She'll have to keep buying the neighbor's properties to continue in the manor she's accustomed to.

    If one is looking for yield, and is willing to hold 'forever', the MLP space has some great possibilities imo. People like to complain about the tax issue(s), but it's not that big a deal, esp since TurboTax can handle it for you.

    Lawrence Weinman--

    Stick with your bonds. I doubt you'll find any new customers in this thread.

  • Intel: The Apple for Value Investors [View article]
    <I've wasted enough of my time responding, time to troll along>

    Why don't you have a look in my recycle bin?? There's some bottles and cans in there that you can take to the local recycler for cash so you can fix up your bicycle.

    < but it's no substitute for a full-powered computer and a bigger screen.>

    Agree completely. I still don't get why staring at a phone and using it for computing needs is that prevalent. Then again, I'm 42-not 22, but I'm also 6' 6'' (my hands/fingers are too big for cell (i)phones) and prefer to be home on my desktop.

    I'll stick with INTC until/unless their div policy changes. That's where the value is (for me).

  • On The Importance Of Understanding Trend Following [View article]
    <One of the more important aspects of Trend Following is that its users understand the importance of psychology in markets.>

    To me, this is the key, both for individual stocks and the overall market. There are a lot of players and a lot of factors to consider, so the 'psychology soup' is murky much of the time. I like to factor in some t/a and blend it with current psychology to form a clearer picture of what's both going on, and most importantly, what's going to happen.

  • Are We Headed For A Double-Dip And More Downgrades? [View article]
    How about as long as politicians resist actually accomplishing anything real on these issues, their pay is halved and THEIR retirement is frozen-if not taken away outright???

    Good grief. Those #s are from a 100 years ago. Something more recent would have been more beneficial.

  • Intel An Ideal Long-Term Hold [View article]
    INTC needs to get into tablets and phones. The pps is reflecting their lack of presence there, so an investment is a bet that they'll figure out a way to get into those two fields...imo of course.
