  • Composite Portfolio Midday Report (7/18/13) [View instapost]
    I got trapped on FRO two years ago actually----I'm too far down to cut. I am waiting above hope that it finally does turn around. If oil prices go up then FRO could very well be in a very good spot.

    If I thought for sure that there would be a rebound I might very well double down on my current position. As it is I am just hoping and holding. I would not recommend FRO as a buy for ANYONE right now.

  • The 'Great Rotation' May Be Very Different Than Many Think [View article]
    I definitely agree with your judgement that a tapering, leading to rising interest rates, will "cool" stocks and a slow melt down (in the stock indexs) begins.

    Indeed, this is how I learned of DRIP in the first place....Just never found myself at the right time with KO (yet). Probably should force it soon.

    Love your thoughts on this. I hold 133 right now, and while it does not inundate me at all even your tips could make me sharper. Thanks a lot.

    Between KO, PEP and MCD its been the hardest thing to decide. I ended up taking MCD at the time over KO with the eye on PEP after but the entry point never really got where I wanted it.

    I look at it like MCD/KO is the empire versus MO/PM/KRFT/YUM/PEP/MDLZ since that was all once one company. I took MCD and every other part of the other side. KO is always sexy but often the other side measures out better at any given time.

    I am following well---my thought here is what about capital depreciation (unfortunate as it may be). There are more than a few well known High Yielders out there that are showing TTM div yields of 10%+ and 52 week gain/loss lines of -8% or more.

    The two issues here being: If my goal is to remove income OR I am looking to revinvest, then Capital Gain+Dividend Increase would maintain (or grow) my income (and investment). Conversely, CapLoss+Dividend Increase would need to outpace both Inflation AND CapLoss and CapGain+Dividend Static or down would still pose its own problem.

    (trying to tie up all points in how I am reading it)

    Could you give me a more clear point on these numbers? I have my own already but yours intrigue me. I have the hardest time understanding RSI, and P/S, how do you use that?

    I am trying to teach my wife stuff and I tell her PE over 16 is questionable without merit. I personally now actually follow PEG way more, and it has worked very well. PE got me into a few spots PEG would not have.

  • Automobile sales in India fell 6.7% in the fiscal year that ended at the end of March to mark the first decline in the industry in a decade. The Society of Indian Automobile Manufacturers reports 1.9M passenger cars were sold domestically during the period. [View news story]
    rape bus sales up 12.6% though so maybe it all evens out.

    Agreed.

    It makes sense that almost anyone would view the facts in the same way. That you are a bored Corporate Accountant strenthens the observation.

    Good luck to us all.
