  • AT&T declares $0.47 dividend [View news story]
    did not mean to "set anyone off".just never understand all these complaints.unless you are on the inside,wall st is just vegas but slower & more complicated.analysts are all over the place on the same cos.you really have to think for yourself in this risk-reward game.how many of these brains predicted $50-60 bbl oil?i remember predictions of $200 bbl & running out oil the day after tomorrow.LOL

  • Update: Finally Some Good News For BP's Business Economic Loss Settlement [View article]
    as a long time shareholder what annoyed me most was that this accident & loss of life did not have to happen.the safety record of this co was nothing to brag about.the silver lining for me was i bought more shares @ a real bargain price & my yield now is fantastic.

  • A Couple Of Lessons From Hawaii Electric [View article]
    a while back i advised these island people to stop whining about high kwh.i said if you stopped buying red convertibles & 60in tvs & bought a few hundred shares of HE you would mitigate your electric costs by receiving a nice dividend.those that think solar is going to solve your costs-think again.your original investment loses you app.6%. a year .these panels get dirty & break.outlay for cleaning &fixing.space lost for the system & batteries.replacement of batteries.also having this co in your retirement package is perhaps a good idea.i have no connection to this co or wall st.i am retired living on my ss + great dividends from good cos like this one.i have been to the islands 3x.great living.

    for income its the $s not the yield or gain or loss.what can this co put in my pocket.i dont care about appreciation or the opposite.unless you have a seat on the board predictions are just that.wall st is just vegas only slower & less glitz.

  • Hawaiian Electric, A Down And Out Utility Worth A Look [View article]
    LOL.there are those that bought enron stock & praised that co no end.frankly,i considered buying that stock but had no cash @ that time.lucky,not smart.predictions ,backed by monied investments,wether stock or solar power are dangerous & very risky.remember we were going to $150-$200 brl oil?

  • Kinder Morgan: The Calm Before The Storm? [View article]
    its the american way.thats a quote from a ct canditate for governor.he owns a $5million yacht,a private plane,a huge home on a private lake in greenwich,ct. along the way he paid no taxes for 2 years.so that was his answer when asked about this.this whole wall st game is a complicated scam put in place to benefit those who make the rules & understand them.so if you dont like the game you just have to stay away.a small retired uneducated investor like myself has to be happy to make a few $s & hope the rules dont change too much.also remember-mr.kinder came from enron.
