  • Cracker Barrel: Slow And Steady [View article]
    Many of the restaurants are well located on interstates but also easily convenient for their local towns... I live in a city of about 80,000 and the CB is on I-10 and a main cross street. We usually go there about once a week and many locals do. We often go for a very late lunch because the restaurant is often completely full at the regular lunch time.

    I don't understand why the gift shop is only 20% of their business...seems as if it should do a little better than that.

    I expect to hold CBRL for a long time. It is a good retirement stock.

  • Stock Splits, Reverse Splits, And Stock Dividends [View article]
    I got out of ARR as soon as they announced... I moved into MAIN and GAIN - a little more O...

    Sometimes a stock split will encourage buying, after the split, as people who did not want to buy at the higher price move in, causing some price increase. I have never seen a reverse split work (although I'm sure there must be some that have).

  • Main Street Capital: An Investment For All Interest Rate Environments [View article]
    I only recently discovered MAIN. I also hold BX, KKR and NEWT. Not sure they are all the same but are similar and all seem to be doing pretty well.

    Thanks for the very helpful research and opinions!

    Then you are saying there is no foreign income tax withheld from the distributions? That was the case in some of my Canadian stocks a few years ago... Thanx

  • AT&T Has A Significant Growth Opportunity Ahead [View article]
    I too like T and have had it for some time. It is 6% of my total portfolio and my 6th largest holding. I bought and hold it primarily for the excellent dividend.

    That said, I am a little nervous about the Mexico deal. Their gov. seems to be so unstable and often times corrupt. How save is the business environment there for T?

  • Williams Goes The Kinder Morgan Route, Higher Dividends Ahead [View article]
    It may not work exactly as they envision but I am very optimistic that Williams will do well in the next 5 years... I added yesterday and today in both my IRA and in my Dividend account. I'm also long KMI, MWE and ETP... go WMB!

  • McDonald's Needs More Than The 'McMuffin All Day' [View article]
    MCD has some work to do but...they are working on it. This is the company that innovated most of the things used in the fast food industry.

    They have the resources to re-invent themselves. I think we will see good things from MCD in the next 2 years...and, we get paid nicely while waiting.
