  • The Real Battle Facing McDonald's Has Nothing To Do With Its Food [View article]
    jkelley: have to agree you, none of this has anything to do with whether or not I decide to drop into McDonald's. However, if prices are driven up with no change in food or atmosphere, I can't imagine eating there.

  • 4.2% Dividend Duke Energy Should Benefit From The Dovish Fed And Growing Profits [View article]
    David: Thanks for your response. I had not looked under the valuation tab. And indeed DUK's ratio is somewhat better than the industry. This is not a ratio I am familiar with, so will need to educate myself some more.

    ArtfulDodger refers to debt/equity while David White refers to total debt/total capital. I haven't been able to come up with the 51% figure, but both TDAmeritrade and Yahoo show year-end debt/equity at about 104%. Which ratio is more significant? David, what assets are you including in your ratio? I come up with around 45% depending upon what is counted as capital.

  • A Re-Posting Of Biblical Proverbs That Guide My Investing [View instapost]
    Thanks for sharing your Biblical perspective. I don't begin to touch your depth of research, but I think your application of the principles is right on. Your application of Proverbs 13:3 is very different from my understanding of the verse, but you've given me more to think about.

  • The Time To Hedge Is Now! December 2014 Update - Part II [View article]
    Mark: In the second paragraph under "Rolling Positions" " I will offer prices above the ask price, but below the Bid price, . . . " Did you mean to say "I will offer prices above the bid price, but below the ask price."

  • Profiting Daily With CF Industries [View article]
    I happened to have this article marked, so I saw your post. Kevin got into a "shouting" match with several other contributors, and he was either banned from SA or decided to move on. I believe he has his own web site and blog now. The strategy outlined in Kevin's articles is to be considered high risk and is probably not suitable for someone new to options trading.

  • The New Nifty Fifty, Part 1 - Dividend Growth Style [View article]

    I sold the $105 put for $2.44, so if I get assigned my cost will be $102.56. If CVX rises, I'll either keep the total or buy it back and keep the difference. If it plunges downward, I'll reevaluate. Looks like we're all in the same ballpark for target pricing; I think a little more patience will be rewarded for all.

  • The New Nifty Fifty, Part 1 - Dividend Growth Style [View article]
    This list is not a tout sheet, nor has anyone suggested these stocks as recommended buys. I don't own MSFT, but not sure why you hate it so much, you haven't justified your opinion. With the exception of the REITS and utilities, virtually every stock listed is an international company; people have lots of reasons for not owning foreign companies. You apparently like foreign stocks; please tell us why.

  • The New Nifty Fifty, Part 1 - Dividend Growth Style [View article]
    I was surprised to find that I/we hold only 16 of the stocks of the fifty. However, I did open a small position in VZ in my wife's IRA this morning, and sold a November $105 Put in CVX in my IRA. Argued with myself about simply opening a position in CVX, which I've watched for a long time. Would be really pleased to get into CVX at $105; now hoping I wasn't being greedy.
