  • About McDonald's New Turnaround Plan [View article]
    No love for the cash cow that is MCD. I get it. But maybe if they would stop putting the cow under a heat lamp might grow a Little bit.

    I guess this whole divvy cut was just an over reaction by the mgt team?

  • Ensco Plc: Fleet Status And 1st-Quarter 2015 Results, Commentary [View article]
    Thanks for your comment fun trading. I have been holding, but most divvy experts say always sell when a company cuts it divvy. So I am holding but will likely dump so I can reinvest in an income stock. I gotcha on the cyclical stuf - but where I kick myself is that my portfolio goal was to get a solid income stream from top divvy companies. There was no reason to add something with such a short divvy history. When the divvy cut hit - it hit hard and I was left feeling stupid for taking the risk. DOH.

    Here is where I am at with ESV. It may indeed be the "best in breed" but this is a breed you don´t want - like checking for the best pitbull to pair with your newborn. Worst mistake I have made in my life as an investor was purchasing this stock. And the worst part it was a greed for the divvy, and paying too attention to articles on SA that said the divvy was safe etc. There was never a need to add to my income portfolio. Learn from my mistake, avoid this space - it is way too one dimensional. If you think oil is headed up, head to a depressed major with a lot of varied operations that can soften the blow if times get worse or stay as is.

  • No Love Lost - The Future Of McDonald's [View article]
    They have been through worse. Time to focus on their customers and not try to win over critics that will never judge them fairly. They are the whipping boy for the obese pólice - accept it and move forward. You have posted your calories everywhere while Dominos has a bacon wrapped pizza and BK a bacon sundae. You will never win - just get moving and add some quality to the mix and lets make some $$$$$$$$$$$

  • Is AMD Falling Into The Abyss? [View article]
    Nice article, just loved the info without bombastic predictions or claims.

    From your discussion, sounds like INTC has them in their crosshairs and can take a bad quarter or 2 on margin to tighten the thumbscrews. I am sure they can smell blood in the water and will amp up the price aggressiveness. If they get attacked by price on the bottom end, get cash starved to cripple their design efforts - it really seems that INTC has them by the short and curlies. Not a pretty picture, and I think your article does a great job of sounding some alarms.

  • My First Quarter Estimates For AT&T [View article]
    Meh. On one hand- stiff competition blah blah blah. On the other hand - tremendous barriers to entry - bandwidth bully monopolies. Push IMHO. In addition, I work in a very poor country and people will go without meat in their diet to get a few extra minutes on their celly. Customers are basically addicts but T doesn't have to sweat DEA. DOJ other story.

  • Intel: It Could Have Been Worse [View article]
    I have to agree @ moderation just really tough to see the catalyst or lever that is going to grow the total company. Still long INTC - but it is difficult to see how this company grows the top line outside of just buying sales.

  • AT&T: The Die Has Been Cast [View article]
    There is a disconnect here somewhere. Either T leadership are complete buffoons, or the net neutrality is bad for them. I guess if a company is suing to prevent something good from happening - I should be put in some sell orders. I would say it is impossible and that you have missed something, but they did lose billions in that failed M&A boondoggle so the jury is out.
