    tealone,

    I agree on the solid dividend discussion. Plenty of smart folks here at WSB, that is for sure. When people share ideas and strategies, we have a wonderful resource here. I thank those who take time to comment and share.

    I continue to look for steady dividend stocks and added $CIG today. International utility with a solid dividend. Somewhat volatile, as al roman pointed out above, but my initial purchase is relatively small and I'm willing to risk a little on it.

    I look forward to future discussion on stocks and investing and will leave the politics to those who do a much better job with it than I ever could.

    Have a great weekend.

    Volatility noted, my friend...opened a small position and will keep an eye on it

    Nothing ventured, nothing gained

    Maybe keep the 4s and add an iPad? Not sure if this is an option?

    I have used a 4s since they came out and have no intentions of upgrading. My wife and sons (2 in college and 2 in HS) have the iPhone5. Not sure if any will upgrade to a 6. Both college boys use Macs.

    At home we have an iPad (my wife uses for work) and iPad mini that our daughter uses for educational purposes.

    Any wonder that we have Apple stock in both portfolios?

    Great point.

    If it isn't broken, then don't fix it.

    Stick with what is working for you and avoid the trends. Path not taken doesn't mean it is the wrong path.

    Dividends for me. Diversified dividends.

    Good Morning al roman.

    The Voice on utilities votes for utilities. I didn't see that one coming :)
    Solid dividends and low risk factor?

    Have a great day!

    Good Morning to all WSB readers.

    $UPS beats estimates and is up over 2% pre-market. Not sure gains will hold today as news (see above) continues to cloud the market. Looking forward to seeing my UPS delivery guy and thanking for a job well done!

    Lion's Gate linked to Alibaba, who is considering buying a 37% share of $LGF. Yahoo! (no pun intended) Great news for those of us long LGF. Read more here:

    Pfizer is planning on a $11B buyback plan. Plenty of issues with buying drug companies from overseas due to US tax regulations and PFE seems to be dropping any hopes of a purchase. Read more here:

    Airlines reporting record profits in Q3. I wonder if the decrease in oil/gas prices will result in a drop in ticket prices or if the airlines will hold the course and look for a another record in Q4?

    Great discussion yesterday on dividend stocks. My question for you to ponder today is:

    Which sector do you see having a strong quarter or year? (try to choose one and give reasoning for your choice) Tech? Pharma? Transportation? Oil&Gas? other?

    Where is Jon Corzine and was that him dropping a ceremonial puck at the Kings vs Sabres game last night? MF Global night is always a fun event at the arena.

    Have a great day everyone and a wonderful weekend.

  • The Death Of The iPad? [View article]
    iPads are being used more and more by schools (elementary and HS) throughout the US. Common Core assessments will be done online via iPads in NY State in the coming years from what I can gather.

    I did not see the numbers for potential educational sales for schools included in above piece.

    Even if this number is lower than expected, as an Apple investor I am not worried about the decline in iPad sales. They will level off at some point and investor can enjoy the fact that millions of iPads will be sold on a yearly basis.

    iPhone sales numbers more than make up for decrease in iPad sales, IMO.

    Thanks for the discussion on dividend stocks everyone. It has taken me a few years to move the majority of my stocks to dividend stock selections.

    tealone,

    I have tried to spread my portfolio through different sectors. Oil&Gas, Pharma, Tech. etc. Holding through tough times is made easier if certain sectors are not affected as others, there is a balancing that takes place, if that makes sense.

    I have a number of years before considering retirement so I don't mind the ups and downs.

    I don't consider myself experienced. Just a guy trying to navigate the waters of the stock market.

    Cheers
