    Your "new broker" should have told you to sell 4 years ago!

  • Philip Morris: What's The 2015 Dividend Raise? [View article]
    Bill will write 3 or 4 more of the articles on the same issue between now and September. Unless he is too busy writing the similar ones about Apple and the dollar. He is right on with the research, just a bit redundant.

  • A Few Reasons To Like Triangle Capital [View article]
    Nothing stated here, e.g., taking on more debt and being 'overvalued' will send me running to the window to bet more on this stock that for me is a small position, but a moderate loser (in ~$28). I hold it for the the dividend and have little hope of a price at or above $30 for a long time, if ever.

  • Vale: This Could Be Big [View article]
    Let's see if there is really another building boom in China and if the millions of crooks there play fair with foreign companies, and the if crooks running Brazil play fair with their domestic company, and if the world economy in general grows at a faster clip, and if the nitwits running Vale play it smart for a change. then… WAY TOO MANY IFS!!!

  • Vale: Turnaround Unlikely In A Challenging Iron Ore Market [View article]
    Vale bulls almost continuously have been "buying at all time lows " for 2-3 years. How has that worked out for them "long-term"? I repeat my question here yet again: Are you better off averaging down and buying more and more Vale as many here claim to be doing from $15, $20 or even higher down to $6 for several years or, in stead, buying a better stock (better than Vale could be found using a dart board) and waiting for a confirmed turn for the better in the iron ore business and the company itself to buy Vale? I chose the latter. Anyone choosing the former will probably take at least another 3 years just to break even (never mind a decent profit) and that money, thanks to inflation, will buy them a lot less than it would in all of the intervening years. I fail to see the logic of buying into a bad industry in a bad (corrupt) country near the top of a very old bull market.

  • Goldcorp Set To Rise On Break Of Key Technical Level [View article]
    Nothing like having a company continuously losing piles of money, and having the price drop like a rock then basically meander around $20/share to make me want to buy for "technical reasons"! Oh, and I almost forgot about the clueless management. What a bad joke this is!

  • A Critique Of Carl Icahn's Apple Fair Value Revaluation To $240 Per Share [View article]
    These acts of arithmetic masterbation are getting both longwinded and tiresome. Apple is worth what the market says it's worth and not a cent more! I wish these "experts" would grow up. In stead of these wild claims/predictions e.g., $140 by the end of May, $175+ by year end, $240 god knows when… just buy and sell the stock on facts that are extant, not wishes, hopes, or what "should be."

  • Apple To $140 By End Of May: It's A Mathematical Problem [View article]
    I use covered calls with 75% of my Apple stock. I hope it gets to $140 slowly between now and October. BTW, I think it will.

  • Disney's Increasing Profit Margins, Asset Turnover, And Equity Multiplier Help Increase Return On Equity [View article]
    Disney pays an annual dividend in December. Last year the dividend was raised substantially from 92 cent to $1.15. I'd expect a raise to at least $1.40 this year, with a chance of a stock split. With great movies and another offering from "Frozen" coming, not to forget the biggest ever theme park in China. I say sit back, relax and watch the stock go up.
