  • Buy Eastman Chemical After Its Recent Drop [View article]
    Great company. Rewards their employees and expects great performance...or vice versa. I bought more on the dip. Long Eastman!

  • (Un)Happiness At McDonald's? Outlook Not So Tasty In 2014 [View article]
    Rose_Colored_Glasses said, "The unions pound them, despite their history of being a great and safe place to begin your career, learn some customer service concepts, and learn to work hard. Why do they pound MCD? Because they can, and because that is where the money is."

    That is where the money is ... is because there aren't enough factories left in our country to provide a great and safe place to begin your career. Now, instead of learning a manufacturing trade where common sense and hard work gives you the opportunity to step up without a BS degree, the new "factory" is McD's. You don't find many factory workers striking these days because the unions (maybe) understand that if they push, the jobs will disappear to our friends overseas. So that just leaves minimum wage earners that serve it up to their customers to foot the bill.
    Raising minimum wage doesn't help anyone long term. If you are in a minimum wage job with minimum chance to move forward, you are always going to face minimum wage. And it will not be a living wage for most folks.
    I am long McD's. If you don't (or do!) agree with my comment, please buy Made In USA.

  • It's Time To Exit Exxon And Chevron Stock [View article]
    I must also disagree with your recommendation. Exxon is a primary holding for my entire family and I have just started a position in Chevron. There are higher growth, higher paying dividend stocks available....but these are portfolio cornerstones.

  • Revival Of Chemical Industry Will Drive Eastman's Future Growth [View article]
    This week, Eastman announced a big expansion project including 300 new jobs in Kingsport over the next 7 years. They treat shareholders and employees well, and contribute to the community. Icing on the cake from a company moving forward here and abroad.

  • The Special Dilemma For Altria Stockholders [View article]
    Regarding rolling your own Mary Jane smokes vs buying them....they sell peeled hard boiled eggs only because folks buy them. How hard is it to boil and peel eggs?
    I think the Malboro Man and Mary Jane make a cute couple.
    Long MO.
