  • Recent Buy: AT&T [View article]
    "...no matter what the government tells us, inflation is very real."

    Like high blood pressure and high cholesterol, silent inflation is slowly killing off the retirement accounts of many. Everyone should get a 'checkup' (portfolio review), get on the right 'drugs' (solid investments), and live longer than their money.

  • Lockheed Martin: An Excellent Dividend Play On The Defense Industry [View article]
    Because a vast amount of the money 'sitting on the sideline' is in the possession of people that don't have a full understanding of risk/reward and how silent inflation is eroding their future buying power?

    Added 200 shares @ $32.59, back in December when the market was getting hammered. T is a core holding in my taxable trust account.

  • Helmerich & Payne- Might Be Time To Catch That Falling Knife [View article]
    I'm short the Mar 65 puts, so if I let them ride and get assigned I'm in the stock at right around resistance pricing. Lot's of options for my options until expiry, but I wouldn't mind being long the stock. HP is best of breed IMHO.

  • How Will Windows 10 Impact PCs And Tablets? [View article]
    "if you only used your time hating for trying to understand it"

    Yeah.

    I really like how it turns off the monitor on my laptop, but doesn't shut down, forcing me to power off the unit. That's got to be good for the op sys.

    I really like how it freezes Internet Explorer when using Microsoft's own Silverlight plugin.

    Yeah. No hate here.

    I'm a Windows 8/8.1 hater. It makes my laptop think it's a big phone. Apps? Really? Get that detritus off my laptop. And my desktop.

    IMHO: If Windows 10 is only bad, it will be an improvement over Windows 8/8.1.

    BTW, thanks for the article.

    Thanks for the article and insight. Of the five survivors, I own T and PM in my taxable trust account. My grandson owns COP in his DRiP account.

    If Win 10 is just bad, it will be an upgrade to Win 8.1 that's on my work laptop.

  • The Dividend Growth Weighting Game [View article]
    Good move on LMT. When I was researching DRiPs for my Grandson Project (in my instablog-shameless self promotion), one of the factors considered was fees.

    A number of dividend champions were left on the curb because of fees.

    Keep writing, I'll keep reading...

    Thanks Mike, I always try to read your articles and comments.

    Company DRiP fees are something to keep an eye on. I understand why you shut off the flow into LMT. Those are pretty onerous (but not uncommon) considering there are many, many good companies offering DRiP options without fees. Of the companies in my grandson's DRiP portfolio, only JNJ and GE charge fees. And then those are only to cover ACH fees ($1.00 per transaction).

    Kinder Morgan did not offer a DRiP when they were organized into different companies. Although KMR functioned as a DRiP. I wonder if they will offer one now? If so I'll add it to my grandson's portfolio.
