    Your philosophy is very interesting and seems to work well for you.

    Thanks for providing an alternative view on investing.

  • Ensco Remains On Track To Grow [View article]
    Hey, it's not just the offshore drillers tanking, it's the oil patch generally. The ocean boys are the more volatile sector, which any informed investor understands going in.

    I think ESV is a buy now and am adding (and will add) on the way down. And, no, I don't consider it to be a falling knife. Oil prices will tide back up again and raise all the boats. They always do.

    @go-04-it

    Mr. Aquaman likes to be the backbench gadfly on all these offshore driller articles. Pay him no mind, just scroll faster.

    Hey, MHG pays an 8%+ dividend!

    CSCO is not a holding for cap gains. It is more bondlike, with a decent and safe dividend.

  • Retirement Strategy: How Will Rising Interest Rates Affect Dividend Growth Investors? [View article]
    I don't consider O, Realty Income, to be "on sale" now. Got a ways to go, < $40 to buy more, for me at least.

    OHI is a different story, but I don't like their high debt. HCP is the one to own, I think.

  • Overcoming Financial Pessimism [View article]
    Social Security is the third rail of American politics. It's death for any politician to even suggest any watering down, such as means testing. The only thing I can see happening is a possible trimming of the peripheral benefits, which never were the original intent of the plan anyway.

  • Ensco: Some Perspective In Offshore Drilling Values [View article]
    salmonjack,

    If you don't like the segment, why do you bother to read the articles and post your inane comments on the thread?

  • Ensco: Some Perspective In Offshore Drilling Values [View article]
    Hey, jacksalmon,

    Wake up and smell the coffee.

    Anyone with half a brain knows going in that this sector is volatile (everyone's beta is => 1.5) and for either traders or long term dividend investors.

    Segment will bounce back, and those with cojones will buy/add now and sit back, collect the dividends and wait for it to bounce back with the price of oil It always has and always will. Fossil fuels will continue to be THE energy source for our lifetimes, and deep water drillers aren't going anywhere.

    Long ESV, adding on future dips.

  • Noble, Seadrill sink as driller market continues to soften [View news story]
    Long ESV and will add some more on the way down to lower cb. Dividend will sustain in the meantime. Fossil fuels aren't going anywhere anytime soon.

  • VCLT: A Good ETF To Have In Your Portfolio [View article]
    Jb.....

    Defining youngsters....they're the ones who, whether at banks, real estate offices, or brokerages who tell you at the top of cycles that "it's different this time." Then you know it's time to be a contrarian.

    Reading about the past is no substitute for having experienced it, no matter what the endeavor.

    Liesman is the most useless individual on CNBC, and that's saying something. He always reads all these government reports, then says he doesn't know what it really means. Hell, I could do that. The only time Liesman's interesting is when Rick Santelli is pushing one of his political hot buttons.

    Running in close order in terms of uselessness at that turkey channel are Ross-Sorkin, Sullivan, and Cramer, order depending on the day.
