    Regulations? The Obama Administration? NO, that can't be, as pro-business as they are.

    Own SRE and happy with it. Sold off some a few years ago and wish I hadn't.

  • Apartment Investment And Management Co. Preferred Stock, Opportunities And Risks [View article]
    I'm willing to settle for lower dividend preferred stock rated BBB or higher. Besides, I own a bunch of AIV common which is all the exposure I want in this company. Gratified to see that their prospects are improving, as it's been a wild ride in the 10+ years I've owned the stock. Was DRIPing during the downturn, however, so my cb is really low now.

  • Russia may ban car imports if West imposes new sanctions [View news story]
    Last I checked, Russia neither a flourishing car industry nor a huge demand, so let them ban western imports. I'm sure GM, Ford and others will be able to withstand a not-so-crushing blow like this.

    Vlad is just throwing everything against the wall to see what might stick.

    Keynes went broke several times. Better check your history.

    Neither will Soros. He'll be presiding over an Elizabeth Warren dinner, who'll be one of the prime movers of the society Rand correctly envisions, which will cause Galt to emerge.

    Based on your 'competitors' data, and also my research, ESV is my choice in this high-beta sector. Long ESV.

  • New Shell CEO Takes Out The Trash [View article]
    That has changed.....now it's in cash. I had to bite the bullet and sell that one share a while back.....$7. commission. Although, I could have wait a few centuries for it to become 100. Hah.

  • Dividends Matter If They Matter To You [View article]
    Like the old song, "Diff'rent Strokes for Different Folks"; successful investing is personal and in the eye of the beholder; whatever works for he, she, or it. One school of thought shouldn't be mocking the other.

    I sometimes suspect that some of these anti-dividend people, especially Dale Roberts, just like to stir up the pot and get a spirited discussion going. He couldn't possibly seriously believe some of that stuff he writes! OOPS! Just kidding!

    Ray,

    Glad to see you again! Very well presented article as usual.

    Well, I agree with pretty much everything you said. I really like van Beurden and his approach to the business. Change won't happen overnight, but he's made a good start which impresses me. I imagine he's got his hands full rattling the internal cages.

    I'm long at $67 so I'm pretty pleased with both the pps and the dividend, which when I bought it was over 5%. Only sorry that I didn't invest more, but the current oil glut may push prices down to my buying territory again.

  • Cisco slumps in spite of target hikes; peers also off [View news story]
    mng......

    Yeah, what a bozo that Chambers is. Only built the company to the 500 lb. gorilla it now is. And, tells it like it is.

    Hopefully you'll pardon him if he doesn't comply with your wishes anytime soon.
