  • First Long Island Corporation Is Branching Out - Does That Make It A Buy? [View article]
    Puny dividend.

    Price too close to 52 week high.

    Too much debt.

  • Shell No! I Won't Go Back To Rule-Changing Oil Giant [View article]
    Mike,

    I don't understand all your sound and fury.

    Owning RDS-A is a pain if for no other reason than the tax situation. Why didn't you just own the B shares in the first place?

  • Noble Corp. Should Not Be Dismissed [View article]
    Good article on arguably the best company in this sector.

    However, plunging oil prices are like a police raid; the innocent go along with the guilty.

    What will restore the health of the sector will be oil prices => $75/bbl. History suggests that this will ultimately happen, the question is just when.

    In the meantime, maybe some of the weak sisters will either go under (pun not intended) or be acquired. Be good for the industry.

  • Kinder Morgan Will Continue To Increase, Not Lower, Its Debt Load, And That's A Good Thing [View article]
    Two different days, two different takes on KMI.

    Personally, I think Tim's is the calmer, more accurate and reasoned of the two. Makes sense to me, anyway.

    As far as Barron's is concerned, a lot of people check it out at the newsstand and flashy headlines are the bait. It's all about circulation.

    I'm long KMI with a nice paper profit so far and see no reason to panic-sell it.

  • Building The Core With Vanguard: Domestic Bonds [View article]
    Wait for a couple of Fed rate increases, which will drive bond prices down and their yields up. It'll really be attractive then!

    madden,

    So why is it a weak article?

    Do you care to answer generally, or point by point?

    Ohhh,

    Agree. SA used to be a very civil investment platform. Authors and commenters disagreed with each other rationally and intelligently.

    No more. SA has become a very popular forum, but, unfortunately, has attracted too many novice and uncouth "investors" who, when dissenting, do so with accusations of dishonesty and personal insults. Sign of the times, unfortunately.

    BTW, Valentum has been contributing articles on SA for years, some of which I've found helpful, some not. I don't subscribe to their newsletter.

  • Use Seagate Technology PLC To Build Dividend Income [View article]
    Casey,

    Thanks for the article. I had STX on my watch list, but forgot about it. The 4+% div. is pretty attractive.

    Time for a little dd updating.

    Thanks again!

  • U.S. appeals court rejects challenge to Shell spill plans in Alaska [View news story]
    Interesting.

    The greenies must not have had much of a case, since I believe that the 9th Circuit Court is the real left wing one out in San Francisco.

    Good point. Didn't Amazon pretty much do the same thing?
