    I'll go for that in a heartbeat. And they can be fired with clean burning, natural gas.

  • Microsoft slips after "disappointing" dividend hike [View news story]
    The people (above) commenting favourably on Microsoft's recent dividend hike have a lot more sense than the so-called analysts claiming to be "disappointed."

  • North Dakota oil output jumps to new highs even as flaring rule changes loom [View news story]
    What does "flaring" mean in this context? Does it mean to burn (waste) some percentage of the natural gas to be recovered? If so, wouldn't "flaring"--wasting--74% of the gas be insane? I hope "flaring" means something else(?)

  • GE: 40% Upside Potential With Limited Downside Risk [View article]
    As an Indian acquaintance used to say when he was moved by an argument's intensity, "You speak words of power!" And, of course, you are right on the money with this one. Joint-stock companies are expected to make money for their shareholders by providing goods and services that people are willing to pay for, all while minimizing the costs of doing so, including taxes, where legally possible.

    Thank you both. I do tend to be over-anxious and hyper-cautious where the IRS is concerned.

  • Update: Still Time To Sell Both AT&T And Verizon As Sprint Steps Up Its Pricing Initiatives [View article]
    For the past dozen or so years, I have thought of Sprint as a zombie: it's not really alive, yet it won't die, even after hemorrhaging year after year after year.

  • Why A Beaten Down Duke Energy Could Be A Smart Investment [View article]
    I don't often follow prices all that closely, so when I read that Duke was down 30%, my heart began sink, that is, until I read your comment, for which, thank you.

    How could Mr. Anand publish something with such a spectacular error, which is the claimed fact (a 30% decline) on which the article's buy recommendation is based?

    If many more articles like this are published by SA, readers may begin to shy away because they can't trust what is presented as hard facts.
