    Most SBUX customers that "overpay" for a cup of coffee are not paying for just a cup of coffee. Most are buying the specialty drinks.

  • Natural Resource Partners declares $0.045 dividend  [View news story]
    They have been trying for some time to diversify. Anyone with more information on the company care to comment how they feel this plan is going? There never seems to be much conversation about this stock.

  • BP - Is It Time To Go All-In At Fresh 52-Week Lows?  [View article]
    There is a difference between running a government spending deficit and pumping at a loss. Saudi Arabia's cost per bbl to extract oil places them still profitable. However, their expensive social programs (bribes against extremism) is what is not currently being funded. They can simply cut their spending.....which may in itself eventually lead to bigger problems.

    Amazon and Target are cool...Wal-Mart is trashy and poor. They need to change the perception problem or they will go the way of K-Mart and Sears.

    Saudi Arabia's costs to get oil out of the ground is less than $10/bbl. They are nowhere near pumping at a loss

    The turmoil in the world is actually keeping oil down this time. Saudi Arabia doesn't want to lose market share to their Shiite rivals, Iran.

  • Blood Is Not Flooding The Streets Yet, Not Adding To BP Stake  [View article]
    Saudi Arabia desperately wants to keep Iran from taking back it's market share..probably more so than pumping to hurt US frackers. It's the whole Sunni vs. Shia thing. They can probably still fund their welfare with anything over $15. I do not see oil recovering anytime soon. Once BP cuts its dividend..I will look to buy. My guess is 2016 it gets cut.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: Here Comes The GDP Revision  [View article]
    Do you ever stop to consider why health insurers are raising prices so much??? No, it's all Obama's fault..lol.
    You can't complain about rising healthcare costs and Obama..then talk about how Hillary and the Democrats are stifling capitalism by trying to stop drug price gouging by giant pharma. It's all related. The healthcare companies are simply trying to cover themselves.

  • Wal-Mart: What Investors Want To Know On November 17  [View article]
    Unfortunately, the consumer class that relies on Wal-Mart is only growing in this country. Yes, it is possible to use Amazon Prime and other stores to never have to step foot in a Wal-Mart. If you are reading this site, that is your reality. However, for millions that is not an option or reality. Wal-Mart will always be the go to store for a large segment of our population. By investing in their human capital, they are trying to still be relevant to the rest of society. It is a smart move long term. Time horizon of 10+ years, this stock makes sense, especially with dividends re-invested.

  • Retirement Strategy: How Will Rising Interest Rates Affect A DGI Portfolio?  [View article]
    You cant compare a category like "food". What does that even mean?? Certain food items have gone up in price, but then certain food items have decreased drastically. Most food items are elastic...you can find a substitute (i.e steak for chicken).
    "Rents' are also a generic term. Sure...rent in San Francisco has gone up...how about that rent in Detroit? Again, it is not universal.
