  • HP's Whitman Bludgeons Her Way Through Doubters And Into 2014 [View article]
    Imagine what she' be doing for California if she'd been elected instead of Gov. Moonbeam.

    Frank Lloyd Wright once said that God picked up the United States by Maine and everything loose rolled to Southern California.

  • The World Just Got A Lot More Dangerous: Buy Oil Now [View article]
    Good article.

    All one has to do is travel the world a little (particularly Europe) and you realize how ignorant average Americans is to the world around them Most don't even know who their senators are or where to find their state on a map.

    All we pay attention to are sports, our pickup trucks, big screen tvs, and 'smart' phones. Too bad the phones are smarter than their users.

    I don't know much, but I do know not to buy any stock at a 52 week high.

    The time to have bought BAC was back when Bret did, not now.

    Face it....Buffett and Munger are smarter than we are. That's why they are multi zillionaires.

    Yeah, he's done such a poor job up until now using his own analysis techniques.

  • Should You Buy Realty Income At Current Prices? [View article]
    Tim,

    Where are you getting your 'fair value' estimates? Most analysts think it is in the $45 range, which would make it a reasonable buy at this time.

    Although, the late, great Marty Zweig used to caution not to fight the tape....

  • Enable Midstream files for IPO; CenterPoint and OGE sell off [View news story]
    This is the kind of stuff only the pros or those with a lot of time and research tools can keep up with. And it's maybe an object lesson why retail investors have no business trying to pick individual stocks and are better off in mutual funds and ETFs. Maybe.

    Don't understand why this IPO was such a drag on the owners' PPS. Revenues and DFC were both down from a year ago. Should have sent their stock higher?

  • Annaly leads more declines in mREITs [View news story]
    If one was going to invest in this sector, now would seem to be the time, when everyone is negative. That is, if you have confidence in their business models.

    Remember what Buffett said about fearful and greedy.

  • Realty Income May Be Old School, But The Dividends Are Really Cool [View article]
    Chow,

    Yup, agree with everything you said (alert the media!).

    I'm at a c.b. of 39 on O. Would love to add more, but fully invested at the moment and I don't want to sell anything else. Killing me to watch it drop while I'm watching, though. Oh well, I'm DRIPing, so I'm getting a little bit of the action.

    Thanks,

  • Sorry Guys, Stocks Are Not Bonds [View article]
    Crank,

    Good common sense article. One caveat:

    "Bonds are number one on the food chain when a company runs into trouble or goes bankrupt...."

    Except if you held certain ones back in '08 when the govt. got involved. Then, those investors were part of the food chain. Has this created a precedent? Stay tuned.
