  • Volatility... It's Back [View article]
    A pediatric dentist, hey? Your bio certainly includes many varied skills/avocations.

    Somehow, it's not easy to visualize you as a gentle and soothing administrator of oral hygiene to the little kiddies.

  • Ford: A Second Half Story To Buy Now [View article]
    That's because they are part of the buy high, then panic and sell low crowd; i.e. the lemmings.

    Anybody who was paying attention in 08 could see that Ford was going to be the best of breed coming out of the crisis and Mulally, despite your bashing, deserves the credit.

  • Exelon: A Safe Haven In This Market? [View article]
    EXC? Safe Haven?

    I guess that's one way of looking at it since everything seems to be coming down to their level.

  • Main Street Capital Makes A Move [View article]
    I bought an initial few shares on the drop and then bought more the same day when it hit another limit order. Patience is a virtue, maybe.

  • The Cheapest High Growth Stock In The S&P Is... Rowan Companies?! [View article]
    Rowan-no dividend. No interest.

    Long Ensco ~$48. Adding on pullback.

  • Is The Linn Energy Distribution Safe? [View article]
    So, what's to like with LINE? No internal growth (acquisition doesn't count) , awash in debt, and negative earnings from operations (take away the hedging, please). Stir in a dividend cut, and you've got a very interesting business situation; unsustainable, I think.

  • Your Investment Returns: Don't Envy The Dows Or The Joneses [View article]
    Chow....

    I agree. Rebalancing is highly overrated. Create as close as possible to an "all weather" portfolio and stick with it. Constantly adjusting a portfolio makes only the brokers happy.

  • Boring Is Back And Beautiful [View article]
    Fundamentals are, at best, mixed. But, the analysts seem to love it. Stock is near the high range.

    Book value has dropped by almost 50% since inception.

  • Schorsch Creates More Magic, This Time It's Health Care [View article]
    Fortunately, comments like yours are in the vast minority regarding Mr. Thomas' efforts on SA.

    While he does go anecdotal frequently, it's always to prove a point, and I don't think he's going to change his style.

    Suggest you bypass his threads in the future so as to save your valuable time.

  • Is Sturm, Ruger A Good Dividend Pick? [View article]
    Too much uncertainty for the firearms industry right now to invest.

  • What If My Stocks Crash And Burn? Part 1 [View article]
    "......if my largest holding goes bankrupt?"

    Then, I would suggest that such an investor should return to Square 1 and re-examine his/her investment strategy.

  • Are You Chasing Yield In Retirement? [View article]
    To paraphrase this article, "buy good income stocks low and stay invested."

  • Want Real Estate Exposure Similar To Realty Income? Buy Tesco [View article]
    Commenters who compare Aldi to Tesco don't have facts available to them.

    Representing Aldi as a threat to Tesco is like saying that Save A Lot is a threat to Kroger. No comparison.

  • Is It Safe? Leveraged Fund Of (Closed-End) Funds Is Paying 18% [View article]
    18% distribution is seems good to be true, and everyone knows how that saying ends.

    PCEF looks good, 11146471. Selling at slight premium to NAV, otherwise like it.
