  • Where Are The Digital Shorts Now? [View article]
    You seem really angry...Did you work for dlr and get fired? Or did you short in the mid 40's and lose money?

    Or are you just a general peach to be around in general...

  • Boeing Could Yield 4% In 4 Years [View article]
    might also yield 1.7% in 4 months way to know.

    What we do know (or at least have a reasonable expectation of) is that 5-10 years from now, the yield on cost will be 4% or higher...which was the crux of the article.

  • Philip Morris: Time To Start Worrying [View article]
    I agree with you that we shouldn't worry about Phillip Morris, and it is a GREAT (not good) long term holding.

    But you also said you wouldn't buy unless the S&P 500 has fallen at least 20%. So, you're telling investors if the S&P falls 19%, but PM, a GREAT stock, happens to fall 34%, you STILL wouldn't recommend buying?

    Seems silly to base the decision of buying an individual stock on the S&P and not the stock itself.

  • Visa Is The Perfect Long-Term Investment [View article]
    So investors with capital available should just sit around until that happens? What if the PE ratio doesn't fall below 20 until 2022?

  • AT&T: A Long-Term Investment Opportunity In A High-Yielding Stock [View article]
    Totally agree. Comcast has a terrible reputation that is completely earned. Would never in a million years invest in that company.

    Long T.

  • General Electric Is A Boring High-Yielding Dividend Stock [View article]

  • Correction 2014: Are You Prepared? [View article]
    Let me try and explain in another way User277...

    Nothing really changed for bhn, because its the NUMBER of shares that determines the dividend payment, not the stock price. If he has 100 shares, he'll get a check every quarter for $94. He gets this check NO MATTER WHAT the stock price is. If the stock is at $77 a share, he'll get a check for $94. If the stock is at $89 a share, he gets a check for $94.

    Then, next year, he'll get a check for $102 or so. The year after, $110 or so. If he reinvests the dividends into more shares, this will only increase the amount.

    The stock price is just the value of what the shares will cost at that particular time. The real benefit of dividends are realized over a long period time, with the power of compounding, which is arguably the most powerful force in the world.

  • AT&T: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet [View article]
    well, i clearly stated that I got into T at 31 and change. So yes, its been a good investment. But I am a long term investor anyway, and will be reinvesting the dividends for the next 20+ years. I'm guessing everything will work out just fine ;)

  • AT&T: You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet [View article]
    Well, I bought T at 31 and change, so its actually been a very good investment for me. I suspect many others are in the same boat. Your talking in hypothetical's that really are completely irrelevant.

    Just because T was a bad investment on one day at one price doesn't mean its always a bad investment.

    Depends on the value you get. If you have lost money on T, sorry about that. But I, and others, have done just fine with T.

  • 10 Stocks To Buy Now: Be Cautious - But Don't Panic: Part 2 [View article]
    Well if you are aware of any foreign companies that have a 50+ year record of increasing their dividends I'd love to hear about it!

    There are many investing strategies out there, sure. Mine is a dividend growth strategy. I believe history has shown these are the best and most stable investments over a LONG period of time. Since I plan to be invested in the market another 20+ years until I retire, this is the strategy that makes the most sense to me.

    I'm also not sure what your yogurt analogy has to do with anything....?

    Buyandhold, so you advise a young investor such as myself to just sit on a pile of cash for 5-8 years at a time until a 20-50% correction occurs? I am 100% on board with your philosophy to buy and hold the best quality companies you can find, but what you are describing sounds a lot like "market timing."

    Foreign companies are not as reliable and successful over a LONG term period as U.S. companies. Period.

    There are not many, if any, foreign companies who have the track record of increasing their dividends for 50, 70, 100+ years like Coke, Exxon Mobile, etc. have in the U.S.
