  • My Mad Method: What Next To Buy, And Why? - October, 2012 Mid-Month Update [View article]
    Great article JD. In an earlier article where you showed your graph of companies, you indicated AGNC had a 5 Yr. Div. Growth Rate of 13.30%. I don't think they have been around that long and the Growth Rate is far below the 13%. They actually reduced their dividend last year I believe. You are right the Dividend is around 14%. Which raises the question about some of the high dividend stocks: Are these stocks worth the risk even though they Pass your 12% or above figure when you combine 5 Yr Growth Rate with the stock's Yield. Many REIT's fall into this category. Thanks again for your research.

  • The Transition From Legacy IT And Its Potential Consequences On Microsoft [View article]
    Investors in MSFT have not done well over the past twelve or so years. The stock has been flat. Even their decision to pay dividends did little to push the stock up.

  • Why Microsoft Stores Will Cause A Paradigm Shift [View article]
    Not sure whether the ketchup is ever going to happen. Kiosks are not cool. In fact it is silly. Why not stores like Apple. Now that's cool. And Best Buy/Staples will not help much. BB is about to go out of business. Staples does not spell the youth techie market. You have to have a unique product in order to compete with Apple. The whole tech consumer business model has changed. Think HP, Dell, Intel, etc.

  • There Is A REIT That Has A Moat, And Kimco Is Its Name-O [View article]
    I'm not sure what anyone would see in this REIT. Low dividend (in comparison to other REIT's), P.E. of 68, earnings have not been impressive, and in 2009 the dividend fell 57% and 8% again in 2010. This stock is way overvalued and has been for years. Puzzled on this one Brad

  • What An iPad Mini Really Means For PC Sales [View article]
    Great article Chris. If you push the graph back to 1999 you can see that was MSFT's best year at about 58 bucks. The stock has never gained any momentum since then even after they started paying dividends (not to mention oodles of new software). Uncanny that Intel's graph looks similar. Intel's stock is the lowest since 1998. They reached their highest price in 2000 at about 70 bucks a share and have been sliding ever since. Those people waiting for a bump in the stock IMHO (Intel too) are going to have to wait a long time. Too many money making opportunities have passed MSFT by.

  • Intel Earnings Preview: Why The Stock Can Go Lower [View article]
    You nailed it nicely Paul. Intel's stock is the lowest since 1998. They reached their highest price around 2000 at about 70 bucks a share and have never gained any momentum since then. Those people waiting for a bump in the stock are going to have to wait a long time. As Bruce Springsteen says: "Don't let those pretty girls pass you by." Substitute "stocks" for girls:-)

  • This Health Care REIT Is A Dividend Story For Your Wallet [View article]
    Not sure about my wallet, but the fundamentals on this stock do not look good to me. P/E of 67, way overvalued, earnings were flat the last two years, and the dividend growth is around 1%. Does someone have some better REIT's they are look at?

  • Realty Income's Latest Acquisition A Departure From The Norm [View article]
    Really puzzled what people see in this stock. Earnings not impressive and the P.E. is off the charts. There are plenty of stocks out there with identical yields, great growth potential and reasonable PE's. RAI and MO are two examples. Best undervalued: MSMT, INTC.

  • Intel's Upcoming Q3 Earnings Report: What You Need To Know [View article]
    Good point Jeff. There are too many good dividend stocks that have a lot more potential to grow over the years. And I'm not sure the technology stocks are good buys right now.
