  • The Best Dividend Growers, Part 17: Ensco [View article]
    Also, I wouldn't touch RIG b/c I don't like current mgmt. Maybe Icahn can make some changes.

  • The Best Dividend Growers, Part 17: Ensco [View article]
    Article light on DD and leaves out SDRL but i agree w the author's conclusion: ESV and NE are the best LT investments.

    Also, the author mentions a 10 million backlog. I believe that should be BILLION.

    Long ESV and have clients who own ESV and NE

  • Retirement Strategy: ETF Portfolio Vs. The Stock Only Portfolio: Surprise, Surprise! [View article]
    I think part of it is a pride issue. I enjoy the due diligence (usually), discussion with others here, and the subsequent stock picking. Sure, I want to sleep at night and be (at least somewhat) diversified, but I want to do it myself-not have someone else do it for me.

  • Seadrill tagged with Sell rating at Nordea [View news story]
    Ooooops....meant to post this under Dan Terry's post.

    <Disagree on SDRL being the only one worth buying in the sector. ESV and NE are solid buys right now.>

    ....and I did start a position in NE (@ $30.45) for a client last week.

    Well said, slam. I haven't been following it as long as you, but I liked what I saw/read last fall and bot some for a client around $84.

  • Every Stock Gets A Participation Trophy In The ETF World [View article]
    Good article and great food for thought. Part of me gets a little more scared every day that we don't have a meaningful correction. It's so easy to get swept away with the 'there's no real downside' crowd.

    Stay watchful, my friends.

    I see your point Paulo, but respectfully disagree. Sure there are Sprint and T-Mobile (at the moment-may become one soon though), but let's not kid ourselves here. Are T and VZ going to let some micro-telecoms become bigger (esp somewhere in their own backyards) and do nothing about it??? I doubt it.

    The cash is there, and so is the motivation. Again, it's just a matter of time. Besides...are all these little guys going to say 'NO' to a huge payday for their co's??? No friggin' way.

    Think BIG MONEY. Big tobacco will have a large slice of this pie b/c they can BUY it. It's only a matter of time.

  • Philip Morris: Is It Time To Buy? [View article]
    I wanted to add under $85, and (obviously) it's not cooperating. Though still a good LT value at $88, I'm gonna wait on this one for the moment, and see if I can get something (at least) in the mid $80s or better. Thankfully, I (my wife, actually) have a good size position already (most of it @ $62).

  • Is Noble A Better Buy Than Ensco? [View article]
    However, i did p/u some NE at $30.45 for a client as i think having both is-ideally-a good idea.
