  • The Oil Spill Settlement Could Bring BP To Its Knees [View article]
    Agree. If one really wants to take a (real) stand, then get petroleum products out of your life and learn to live without them.

    That would be a helluva statement imo.

  • High Dividend Yield Of 5% And Attractive Valuations Make Lorillard A 'Buy' [View article]
    Disagree. There will be more warnings/regulations but LO will continue to do well and sell Newports too. The Prez' job is too stressful to give up his cigs!! Plus, those taxes are valuable. They will not be allowed to go away in this economic enviroment.

    I say it's a buying opportunity.

    And yes...I'm long LO and looking to p/u more : D

  • Join The Party: Join The Bulls [View article]
    "get paid or go home" means dividends, Albert E, not trading. It means i get paid in divs or i don't buy the stock. I don't trade-i get paid--in dividends.

    I'll ignore your rudeness and give you that some selling has and continues to occur. But statements like "That HAS to be true." mean ZIPPO without any proof. Buying and selling happens every day. It has to to make a market.

    Until you've got something substantive to offer, your seat is right next to the peanut gallery.

  • Is LRR Energy's 14.30% Yield Worth The Risk? [View article]
    That was 2 months ago. They've managed to keep the ship afloat and have even moved up a bit in price (was worried then that sub-$13 was imminent). They have even raised-albeit by a fraction-the distribution, something that can't be a bad omen. The recent ER was good yet the pps hasn't really budged, something that puzzles me (not a good sign imo).

    I'm inclined to add a bit...for 2 reasons. 1) They managed to get their $hit together and move forward since the last ER and #s, and, 2) The pps has stayed near $15 for a while now, and with their latest positive #s, it appears there are buyers around $15 to give a floor to the pps. If they can fund the friggin distribution, I'm in on this baby. I keep a very close eye on it though.

  • Qualcomm Fights Off Bears [View article]
    Agree with the author. This co is for real, and I like the commitment that the CEO has shown to be ready for whatever customers are wanting, maybe even before they know they want it.

  • Deja Vu On Margin Debt - 2013 Repeats 1999 & 2007? [View article]
    <<in a sign of increasing concern that rising levels of margin debt could exacerbate a stock market plunch."

  • Qualcomm Reports Higher Earnings, Optimism About Chip Outlook [View article]
    << Interbrand's list of the Best Global Brands for 2012 showed high placement for Samsung, Nokia and Intel, plus Microsoft, Apple, Google and Cisco. BlackBerry ranked 93, but Qualcomm didn't appear at all.>>

    Good point, yet they've been successful and have grown WITHOUT branding. Intel has been branding for decades yet missed the mobile train and has recently lagged. Do people go to buy a phone, tablet, etc. and demand Intel be inside or that Qualcomm chips run the device??? I doubt it. Letting the devices' makers (Apple, Samsung, etc) spend $ on branding and cultivating a solid, working relationship with them might not be such a bad idea (let them spend the $).

    I'm puzzled as to why QCOM's pps hasn't been as successful as the co has. Perhaps that is still to come.
