  • Lorillard: Doing Everything Right But Still Facing Troubles [View article]
    The only relevant topics for LO (and its investors) right now are the possible regulations on e-cigs and menthols, specifically how drastic they will be.

  • Altria: Low-Risk High Yielder Approaching 6% [View article]
    <There's no value in MO stock at current levels>

    At a near 6% dividend?? That's ridiculous.

  • AT&T: Still Undervalued Compared To The Industry [View article]
    <<not to mention the fiasco where they sold me broadband internet service, came out, hooked it up, went through 3 service calls for them to finally figure out they don't even provide service to my area.>>
    I had similar issue when I moved into my house from an apartment. The AT+T internet was great in the apt. We 'took' it with us (we told them we were moving and wanted to take the same internet service with us) when we moved into the house, but it was horrible here. Turned out, after many phone conversations trying to fix the reception and the speed, that "they don't really have service in this area".
    Duh.

  • The 7-Year Cycle That Will Crush Uninformed Investors, Again [View article]
    Not saying the author didn't get some things right in the past, but c'mon. I got out in May of 2008 and 'only' lost 12%. I started buying in Jan 2009 and ended up about 30% for that year, all the while my wife gave birth, we moved 550 miles north, bought a house, and I started a new job in a new city. But I'm not gonna write an article and try to profit from it.

    LMAO...that's funny.

    This article is a combo of reaching, chicken little behavior, and selling a product-nothing more.

    < This tempts me to rate this stock as undervalued.>

    That's not much of a commitment after listing all those graphs and discussing their recent #s.

  • Philip Morris Below $80: Time For A Rebound? [View article]
    I'm guessing you meant UNDER 5% and 4.25%???
    I bot a few more today also-at $75.50. Too good to not at least add a little more. Got a ways to go before I get to $2k in quarterly dividends however. My first 2/3 were bot at $62 tho : D

  • Shell confirms profit slump; targets $15B of asset sales [View news story]
    Perhaps if this new CEO can't turn things around, they will do that. They shouldn't be floundering with the kind of assets they have.

  • Enjoying The High Yields Of AT&T [View article]
    Keep watching the VOD saga. One article I read said that an all stock deal would actually help T's credit rating. It ain't over yet.

    They need something big to kickstart this co and get investors excited about it again.. Otherwise, they are just slowly rolling toward the edge of the cliff.

  • In The Pursuit Of Dividends: Altria [View article]
    <A lot of people on the other hand try to time their purchases. Most brokers in the old days will advise you of averaging "down." The way they used to say it: "if you liked it at $40 you must love it at $30." And for most of us this sounds like a good logic. I do not believe it is.
    I belong to the camp that says you only buy on the way up and only sell on the way down. So, it is averaging, but only if the market or the stock is moving in your direction. The two edicts I try to remember all the time: "do not catch a falling knife" and "the rising tide raises all the ships.">
    Either way, this is a good place to add (or start) some MO. Their track record speaks for itself. One has to think in terms of multiple purchases when building LT positions, and for opportunities to p/u more. This is one of them.
