  • Verizon CEO McAdam got 16% raise in 2014 [View news story]
    ...AND at the very low end....I had a company manager who wanted to rent a space from me today introduce me to a fine 20-year old that would be working for him. The lad had on a new suit and tie. He said "he will be working for me for FREE for four months, and THAT will look good on his resume. I did not rent to him.

  • Utilities And Interest Rates [View article]
    I agree with you 100 percent! Utilities not only offer yield, but some capital gains. In the case of SO, it is building new generation, it does business in four southern states (where air conditioning is a must). What is not to like here?

    ...and Dividend Bonsai Grower (love the name)....not every home and apt bldg can install solar. I know for sure, since I had an audit on two buildings and was told by the solar company that on older buildings, solar is NOT an economical choice (many reasons for this).

  • Kroger: A Retail Play That Is Better Than Costco [View article]
    KR stores in the Chicago area are called Food for Less. They keep the stores clean and their two outstanding offerings are the KR brand ice cream and fried chicken. I once asked an experienced gourmet who has the best fried chicken and he said Kroger, without a doubt.

  • Tapping Into The Dividend Secrets Of Connecticut Water [View article]
    Historically, water utility companies have traded at higher P/Es than electric companies, probably due to investors comfort levels with water stocks. Other than the exchange-traded water companies, it is a highly fragmented industry.

  • Conservative Total Return Portfolio: 7% Appreciation Since August (With A Dividend Kicker) [View article]
    jUST an editing suggestion: Price on IBM did not show up in your chart because it was a 3-digit number that could not fit in the space. To correct this, go to your tab on print size, and reduce the typesize one notch. It will then fit in.

    I might suggest you look at TRN. Railcar orders are up and it just passed the stress test on its guard rails. This is a value play. Low P/E compared to GBX.
