  • 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
    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 can find a substitute (i.e steak for chicken).
    "Rents' are also a generic term. in San Francisco has gone about that rent in Detroit? Again, it is not universal.

    You said it's not that the numbers are's that few employers want to hire someone in their late 50's. You have a higher chance of missing are more expensive to probably lack certain technological skills of people also probably have higher salary demands than the younger potential employees that you are competing with.

    The focus under Polk has been the near term NOW NOW NOW at the expense of the long term...he is gutting the future of the company, but then again...that is not his concern. Great ride for shareholders until it's

  • 13.6% Dividend REIT New York Mortgage Trust Is Banking On Credit Investments, Will That Work? [View article]
    Bond Market collapse...New US Recession..Black Swan...etc.. etc...if we have any of those, EVERY stock is going to get hurt. I appreciate the in-depth analysis of NYMT's holdings, but you pretty much just threw the kitchen sink of bad news into the mix to suggest it isn't a good holding. I am not seeing the dots connected.
