  • AT&T: Solid For Dividend Investors, With An 8% Shareholder Yield And Future Growth [View article]
    @Brad.......Appreciate your response. I just don't consider a debt of $60B 'excessive' for a company with a Market Value of $199B. Yes, debt is important in evaluating a company, but too many other important factors must also be in the equation to arrive at an investment decision. I'm sure any competent management group would take advantage of the current low (or no) interest rates on loans. Extra capital is often required for Service & Business expansion, R&D, M&A, Stock Buy-back, etc., etc.. A business that demonstrates good management, a large demand of their product or services and a good FCF to support above average dividends are but a few of the things that is my initial cursory 'philosophy'.

    The comment about the industry "will always HAVE to invest in new technology" applies to all industries/businesses, if they intend to remain competitive. Albeit, the communication sector is extremely competitive as well as pharmaceutical, energy, healthcare, IT, financial, and the list goes on.

    I agree with your list of investments with low, or no, debt for I invest in most of them, too, but not solely on their debt position, as you seem to have indicated.

    Wishing You A Very Prosperous New Year !

    Interesting.......At what maximum debt ratio do you consider "low" ? Can you enlighten me as to any "low and even zero debt loads" within the S&P 500 ?

  • Despite Appearances, Duke Energy May Not Be Safe [View article]
    <Sneha> I commend you on an excellent, well presented and factual Article. It is quite obvious that DUK's CEO fiasco was well crafted many months in advance of the Merger Approval, as realized by The NC Utilities Commission, The NC Attorney General's Office, et. al.. DUK still has many obstacles to address and will remain very costly for several years.

    However, only one minor correction will be addressed: Ref. Risk #5 should read North Carolina in lieu of "South Carolina regulator......"

    May you and SA readers have a Prosperous New Year !

    <rip> LNCO is not a MLP and I believe the author addressed only MLP's. However, as I understand, LNCO owns LINE as a subsidiary.

    Long on LINE & LNCO. Prosperous New Year !

    I sold 1000 shares of DUK @ $70 first of last July, and recently bought back at $61.50. Think I bought near bottom (?), but good luck @ $50.

    Bob, Again a knowledgeable and excellent written article. Do you have any information in reference to 'foreign taxes/capital gains' imposed by Peru on investors ? Or will this be absorbed by SCCO ?

    Had my focus on RIO, but now considering SCCO.

    Thanks !
