  • Update: ARCP - And Here Goes The Dividend [View article]
    I would look at this as owning a business. If I own a business I expect a cash payment from company income as part of my right as an owner. I prefer to own businesses(stock) that pays the owners(shareholders) and if a business can't make a payments to me I sell the company(stock).

  • Update: ARCP - And Here Goes The Dividend [View article]
    I have been down this road and the best thing to do is dump this garbage. Get whatever you can and something is better than nothing. This company has been accused of dishonest accounting. If they need a loan this companies credit worthiness is below junk status. Who would do a deal with a place like this? I would sell and take whatever you can get!

  • It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like 1998 [View article]
    Good news for companies and banks that have Russian debt on their books. The Russian bank is pledging foreign reserves to finance the debt to avoid issues regarding new loans. This of course is good new for banks outside of Russia but is putting additional pressure on Russian foreign reserves that are being used to back up the ruble.

    Update on my successful prediction, the best bargains in securities will be in Europe ex-Russia.

  • It's Been A Great Year For Dr Pepper, But I Doubt 2015 Will Be As Good [View article]
    "Before buying or selling any stock you should do your own research and reach your own conclusion. It is up to investors to make the correct decision after necessary research. Investing includes risks, including loss of principal."

    I wouldn't sell or buy because this is just an opinion and jumjoey77 is giving better advise.

  • 3 Reasons We Think The McDonald's/Ackman Rumors Are True [View article]
    Watermello56,

    I totally disagree with you. Apple initiated a buy back because the shareholders wanted it and they didn't have to do that to prop up the stock. If a company can buy back shares at a reasonable price there is nothing wrong with that at all. Apple doesn't have lackluster management and Apple is a prime example among many that shows you to not every buy back is a management dirty trick. Share buybacks and dividends are ways companies allocate money.

  • 3 Reasons We Think The McDonald's/Ackman Rumors Are True [View article]
    MCD had an investor meeting and showed their new initiatives and it was well received. I think that MCD is a great company and management will get things in order like they usually do. I think that now is a great opportunity to buy the stock. KO has a bad CEO who focuses to much time on executive compensation and I am long DPS, a great company.

    Hi Rudester,

    Sometimes a company will issue stock to fund a project. If after awhile the company accumulates a lot of cash the firm can increase the dividend or buy back shares. If the stock is cheap it is a good idea to buy back shares and then they can reduce the dividend payouts for those shares. IBM we all know is manipulating their stock through buy backs and Apple did the right thing by reducing their shares with a buy back and benefiting their shareholders. Buy backs when done correctly do benefit the shareholder and reducing the number of shares does add some support to the stock price along with dividends.

  • McDonald's Nears 52-Week Low: How Overpriced Chicken And Millennials Are To Blame [View article]
    Ryan,

    Little Dude and LarryMelman made some very good points that you as a millennial should try to focus in on and maybe you can grow in your analytical skills. See, your reply is a typical mellenial type of reply in that you can't appreciate somebody correcting your error filled analysis.

    As a mellenial let me give you this advise, a road is long when there is no turning.

    This is all speculation. The Orange Pell Heads were scaring MCD shareholders out of their positions with their 80 handle call and now are covering their tracks with MCD at 94. I think the problem with Orange Peel is that when the stock was down the call should have been to buy more MCD stock. Whether Ackerman or somebody else gets involved doesn't matter. What Orange Peel didn't understand was that MCD is a huge global corporation and makes lots of money and will be around many years from now! Companies are go through these situations where changes are made and MCD will be back stronger than ever. They have the resources and their last investor conference was very will received.

  • Zacks' Bear Of The Day: McDonald's [View article]
    I think that Zacks has issues with their employees:

    Also Mitch Zacks has a fund and I have a concern that here he is an owner of a mutual fund and then he is going to tell shareholders to churn, buy and sell, their stocks. I know that Cramer has his "charitable trust" and he appears to encourage churning and this isn't sound investing. I would prefer to listen to someone who has no fund and personal involvement in stock positions. As for Bear of the day, MCD has been in the dog house since their last announcements several weeks ago. I rather own MCD now when it has to make changes than Zack's favorite Gilead which is down 20% in the last 2 days! I am long MCD and my local MCD is always busy and I go to MCD once a month and satisfied with my servings! Further, MCD is a huge company with a lot of resources and will be around for a very long time.
