  • How I'm Reacting To The Ups And Downs Of My Portfolio  [View article]
    While I do keep a manual spreadsheet, I find the Morningstar portfolios to be incredibly valuable. I keep a separate portfolio for each account and combine them periodically to see what they look like in aggregate.

    True. Over 10 years of dividends paid on time and regularly increasing thanks to their annual 1:1.05 split.

  • McDonald's Stock: The Short Term Vs. The Long Term  [View article]
    Not sure there is anything healthy at Five Guys. At McDonalds my kids get get apple slices at least. (OT...I like Chipotle as much as anyone...but have you looked at their calorie count? Might put a damper on the chorus that praises them for their healthy fare.)

    Minimum wage was never designed to live on. Also, wages are supposed to be commensurate to the value you bring to the organization.

    My family of 4 can eat decently for $20 at McDonalds. I payed over $10 for a burger and drink at Five Guys last week.

  • Should You Buy CVR Partners On The Dip?  [View article]
    I do not believe there is material difference between MLP and LP. You get a K-1 from UAN same as you do for any other LP/MLP.

  • Dividend Buy Of The Month: Orchids Paper Products Company  [View article]
    Had been contemplating selling TIS based on the new CEO's somewhat lukewarm affirmation of their commitment to paying a dividend; the poor quarterly results sealed the deal and I sold last week. I tend, though, to have more misses than hits with my sells so I shall see what happens with this one.
