  • 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.

  • Barron's on GE: Sell the news [View news story]
    Bought into my position at $15. I'm holding this for the next 20+ with dividends re-invested. Immelt will not be there forever.

  • Philip Morris: Show Me A 5.5% Dividend Yield [View article]
    Ummm....Jamestown colony anyone? You or I probably aren't discussing the finer points of investing (at least in this country) without the existence of tobacco.

  • Southern Company: Ready To Bounce [View article]
    Georgia will pass the cost on to the consumer. The state has a long history of doing anything for business...often at the expense of it's populace. Long SO..

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Help For The Economy From Housing? [View article]
    I'm sorry, but if your niece's classmates graduated Yale and cannot find gainful employment, they have other issues besides our economy.

  • Is McDonald's Back? [View article]
    You are right on in the fact that it tastes the same as it did 15+ years ago. Ergo the problem. 15+ years ago, the general fast-casual public did not have better tasting was all Mcd, BK, Wendy's etc... Now you have numerous chains that for a few dollars per person taste immensely better! The public's taste buds have changed. Yes, Mcdonald's will still capture the budget oriented consumber, but they are losing the middle-class consumer quickly.
    If my time horizon is 10+ years (and it is) I would not bet against Mcdonalds. However, I'm not adding to my position at anywhere near these levels. I still think there is another medium-term leg down into the 80's at least.

  • BP: The Stock Market Is Not A One-Way Street [View article]
    By following that logic, wouldn't the oil spill and now low oil prices cause BP to shed that "top-heavy" structure that was so cumbersome? I think we are already starting to see that from their recent quarters. If one were to get in now for the long term..I think they will be rewarded.

  • GE leads round of Texas oil layoffs, cuts 330 jobs [View news story]
    "There are absolutely no jobs an oil rig worker can find to replace lost salary"

    Ummm...that's what I call a bubble job. I don't really feel sorry for them in context of the greater savings the rest of the population will see. Replace oil rig worker with Lawyer, Doctor, Restaurant General Manager etc.....all those people have marketable skills that could transfer to something else should their current gig go under. See the difference?

  • Nibbling In The Oil Patch With Halliburton [View article]
    What are you basing your forecast on? The month of Jan.? Even if we have a negative year, this is hardly a wash. I'd much rather buy HAL at 30 than at 40+

  • Philip Morris: The Hits Keep Coming [View article]
    As a non-smoker..I have a question for smokers. Is there a discernable "taste" difference between a premium product like Marlboro and the generics? Or is it simply a nicotine delivery method where people go with brands they've heard of? If a taste difference does exist, I can't see plain packaging having that much of an effect.

    MO is great if you are already in the stock..the run-up over the last 6 months+ has been nice. However, PM is getting very close to attractive levels to go long (sub 80) IMO.

    Your profile says you are a board certified psychiatrist...what does your training tell you about someone who boasts of their self-worth on a message board to total strangers? :)

  • Cheap Oil Prices Do Not Benefit The Economy [View article]
    "Low oil prices benefit everyone EXCEPT those in the oil sector" would be a more apt title. Even if your stat saying 9 million people earn their living through the oil sector is correct (a reach)...240 million people do not. To more accurately gauge the impact of lower oil, your $20 "windfall" needs to be multiplied by a hundred million times or more...every week. Suddenly, your handful of six figure jobs in North Dakota are dwarfed by the money being saved by the rest of the country...every day.
