  • Dominion Resources Set To Grow At Better Pace Than Its Peers [View article]
    The monthly supplement (aimed at investing) to a recent edition of the Kiplinger Letter listed Dominion Resources as a common stock that may not be able to keep paying its current dividend. I assumed that the highly regarded Kiplinger editors were, in this case, just crazy--no one else had made such a call--and continued my participation in the company's DRIP. So far, so good, and the present article seems to confirm that judgment--and for which, thank you.

  • Explain To Me Again Why I Should Own Bank Of America Stock? [View article]
    Yes, of course, which is why I used the phrase "isn't likely to disappear." Arguably, virtually anything is possible. I, too, am long on BAC.

  • Explain To Me Again Why I Should Own Bank Of America Stock? [View article]
    The preceding discussion reminds me of one of my favourrite passages from Nietzsche: "There are no facts, only interpretation" (my translation). There are as many Bank of Americas as there are people who think and write about this bank.

    My (summary) "interpretation" (as a share owner) is that time--perhaps lots of it--will eventually favour (reward) the very patient investor. The odds, I believe, are that the bank isn't likely to disappear in my lifetime or probably the generation or two after that.

  • The Best Utilities To Own For Total Return And Dividend Income Growth [View article]
    Mr. Ditchek. Thank you for such a workmanlike article.

    One thing: "Cash exceeding dividend payments" on a stock (SRE) whose share price is up almost 1,000% over fifteen years seems both ominous and implausible (markets, to personify, aren't usually "stupid" [inefficient] over long period of time).

    How can this be? Do we egress straightaway?

    Long time "long" on SRE.

    "Laws"? If any such laws would have to go through the current Congress (as opposed to the usual King Obama Royal Decree route), Alaska is probably safe for the time being.

  • Exelon Set To Grow And Reward Investors In The Long Run [View article]
    ". . . Grow And Reward Investors In The Long Run"? if so, this would be a policy change and historical actuality of biblical proportions. But thank you for the encouraging outlook.

    Too long "long" on Exelon.

    I agree. Moreover, management does not deserve to be capitalized (as you do on a regular basis).
