  • Cummins Is Repurchasing Shares On The Way Down, Should You?  [View article]
    I thought I was holding CMI via an investment in VYM, but, to my surprise, Cummins isn't a holdidng in that ETF, which holds some 400+ of the big divvy payers. Surprising, but also wondering why.

    All the dire predictions about China gives one pause about any company with significant exposure over there.

  • Rich Kinder Doesn't Know What The Future Looks Like, But It Appears Good  [View article]
    Kinder is beginning to remind me of one of those old time vendors on the boardwalk in Asbury Park, NJ, peddling slicers or something. "Practically nothing this machine can't do.....!"

    His credibility has a shopworn quality about it. Besides, does anybody expect him to exclaim "We're doomed"?

  • 11 Dividend Stocks Raising Payouts And Yields  [View article]
    Can't argue with the quality of the list, but I don't like MLPs in general.

    Long O. Way above my cost basis, though.

  • High Debt Impacts AT&T's Dividend Outlook  [View article]
    Yeah, the debt thing puts me off, too. Plus, it seems to be trading right now at or close to fair value.

    I'm not convinced about some of the other "dire" situations the author mentions, though. T isn't going anywhere, even if it's not the "real" T.

  • Kinder Morgan +21% as investors cheer defensive moves  [View news story]

    Sorry, but short interest in KMI is 2.4%, fairly negligible. Maybe you'll have to switch to blaming Barron's and Bary for the stock's demise.

    Been investing long?

    I agree with STAY AWAY! Only I mean from Yahoo Finance. The only things worthwhile are the streaming quotes.

  • Checkout On Scotiabank And Bladex: My Favorite Foreign Banks  [View article]
    Long BNS, which I thought I purchased well months ago, and am now weathering the decline. But, I think the author's reasoned article is spot on, so I'm going to add a few shares.

    Long O with a nice paper profit at this time. Regardless, no plans to sell it. Just sitting back and enjoying the monthly income.

    Does MAIN have an upcoming equity offering? If so that won't be good news, either, although that effect would be temporary.

    What would Trump do?

    Come to think of it, he'd probably sue somebody.

    Gotta find SOME humor in this...trouble is, I'm too old to cry, but it hurts too much to laugh.

    With my luck, I'd sell it and it would immediately shoot up.
