  • McDonald's - Fair Valuation As Minimum Wage Debate Could Create Worries [View article]
    "With corporate profits at all time highs and 90% of economic gains over the past few years going to the richest 1% it is deplorable that someone working full time in America would still fall below the poverty line. "

    Other than when they are just starting out, full time employees mostly don't fall below the poverty line. And if they continue to work they increase their income to well above that line.

  • This Undervalued High Dividend Stock Will Grow Its Dividend By Double Digits In 2014 [View article]
    BHI has since resigned with them as well. That nicely boosted their share price. I am glad I bought then over a year ago and then doubled down when BHI canceled its original contract.

  • There's No Way I Can 'Butter My Bread' With This Healthcare REIT [View article]
    "Those who refer to 'Obamacare' apparently missed civics class when they were in (junior) high school. It is Congress that makes laws, not the executive branch. "

    You should explain that to Obama then. Its his signature program. AND he is the one who keeps changing it.

  • Dumb Investment Of The Week: Public Non-Traded REITs [View article]
    But while the secondary market might provide good prices for those who buy there, I don't think they provide a good enough value to the original investor to make it worth while to get into nontraded REITs in the first place. Just look at how much money the issuer and brokers take off the table to begin with.

  • A Bulletproof Dividend Growth Portfolio For 2014 [View article]
    "if you buy it when it is priced at 110% of fair market value you have made a bad investment in a good company."

    I don't know that it is a bad investment. It certainly won't perform as well for you as if you had bought it at a lower price.

  • The ABCs Of Dividend Investing: Divi-Do Or Divi-Don't? [View article]
    "It might be that this is not a good time to invest in "the market".
    It might be that this is not a good time to invest in "dividend stocks".
    But it is a very good time to invest in one particular dividend growth company that is currently under-valued. "

    What I learned from DVK and RAS and other SA authors is this is why one shouldn't invest in the market or in dividend stocks but rather in dividend growth companies that are currently under or fair valued. I have yet to have a problem in finding such a company to put my money.

    "Pendragon ,if a Gold & Silver dealer lost $10,000 on $ the value of let's say $50 K in inventory of bullion,is that considered a capital gains loss ?"

    I am not sure. Precious metals have some different rules and I don't invest in them so I don't really know the rules.

    "So, by dropping they gain capital PLUS other benefits. Whereas retaining the asset just results in getting the value produced by that asset."

    Exactly.

    "I mentioned VTI in my first comment. I got it for exposure to Nike."

    Isn't that a round about way to buy a stock? Why not just buy Nike, then you don't have to worry about what is in the other 98% or so of the fund?

  • Stocks For 2014: Something For Everyone: Part 1 [View article]
    Duc,

    You asserted that there was none to little banking regulation from 1999 till 2009. That is so wrong as to be delusional. You then go on to list only 3 of the bodies that have some level of regulatory control over banks, and then somehow think that they have only 1 thing that they do.
    As for your insistance that bailing out banks fixed the problem, it just isn't so. That's like saying that giving an alcholic a drink so that he stops suffering from the DTs also cures his alcoholism!

    "Most dividend growth investors seem to ignore valuation."

    Like most generalized statements, that is untrue. Just because many DGI don't sell based on valuation doesn't mean they ignore it.

  • Shed Some Tiers Over Your Income Portfolio [View article]
    "Ditto our investing scenarios . Everytime I read a rec , I check the 10 year chart and invariably , it is way up in the sky at an allltime high , but because it pays 5 pissent , or has good current profit ,
    "it's a buy" ."

    First, not everything is up. Second, just because the price is at a high, doesn't mean that a company isn't undervalued. It all depends on the earnings and earnings growth.
