  • Kroger And The Emerging Threat To The Business  [View article]
    Kroger in Chicago (Food for Less) does not bag. It is kept exceptionally clean and is trying innovative merchandising such as cooked food and deli. Its fried chicken beats KFC on taste and arid price. On top of that, it owns dairy farms and its ice cream and milk are exceptional. It has recently bought out a premium grocery chain, Mariano's. Am bullish on KR.

  • Kroger: The One Retail Value Stock You Should Add To Your Portfolio  [View article]
    As befits the sometimes high-risk nature of stock picking, "blue chip" derives from poker. The simplest sets of poker betting discs include white, red, and blue chips, with tradition dictating that the blues are highest in value. If a white chip is worth $1, a red is usually worth $5, and a blue $25.

    The phrase was coined by Oliver Gingold of Dow Jones sometime in 1923 or 1924. Company folklore recounts that the term apparently got its start when Gingold was standing by the stock ticker at the brokerage firm that later became Merrill Lynch. Noticing several trades at $200 or $250 a share or more, he said to Lucien Hooper of W.E. Hutton & Co. that he intended to return to the office to "write about these blue-chip stocks". It has been in use ever since, originally in reference to high-priced stocks, more commonly used today to refer to quality stocks.[4] In contemporary media, blue chips and their daily performances are frequently mentioned alongside other economic averages like the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

    Its a traditional IRA for me. One of the advantages is that you can choose your own investments. Many corporate 401s only give you a limited choice, some with added costs.
