  • Goldcorp: My Thoughts On The Third Quarter And The Future [View article]
    If you've been "holding" for the last 3 or 4 years (and many of you have) you have lost over 80% of your GG investment (and almost any other gold stock investments) in a very good bull market. Face reality for a change: You probably will never get all of that money back and you already missed buying some good stocks by holding this loser and other gold stocks. When the market turns you can buy all the gold you want and you will have a profit in due course. Betting on the come is for losers.

  • Goldcorp: My Thoughts On The Third Quarter And The Future [View article]
    I agree totally 603…. We've been hearing basically the same theme from pro GG "analysts" for years now. They've all been wrong! I repeat for god knows how may times: Don't buy any gold stock until the market turns. The bear market has been on for several years now, not several days or weeks. You'll have plenty of time to buy in when the market turns. Would you rather hold this dog for years and lose 80% of your money, as many who bought into the bullish case repeated here ad nauseum have, or miss perhaps the first 10-15% of the up swing before you buy in and enjoy the ride up?

    Come on SA "editors"! Do your job for once. Even my dog knew GE had frozen the dividend.

  • Own These 4 Dividend Stocks Instead Of A Condo [View article]
    Apple and Disney beat all of these by a mile. It's total return and dividend growth, not "yield" that matters!

    Glad to see they are now "aiming to improve." God only knows what they were aiming at before!

  • Potash: Buy It For The 7% Yield [View article]
    Guess why they have that yield: Big Hint--it isn't because they keep raising the dividend so much.

  • Vale: Don't Rule Out A Turnaround [View article]
    I ruled out a "turnaround" in this loser years ago and have been right every day. Time to stop beating the drum of this dead horse!

  • Apple Is Undervalued, And Offers 2 Alternative Ways To Earn Extra Income [View article]
    I've sold a total of 10 covered call trades and won (made a significant profit 8 of those 10 times) on 75% of my Apple stock in the last 3.5 years. I do so in an IRA, tax-free account with B of A/Merrill Lynch that has an annual fee, but zero trading costs. I've made a pile of money (better than 10% annually based solely on options and dividends) doing so because this stock, like many others, has its ups and downs and the volatility allows you to pick and chose your entry and exit spots. I most recently cashed in $125 December covered calls and got over 50% of the max gain in 2-3 weeks. I'm waiting for the next bump up to sell the Jan 130s. Good luck to all!

  • Brazil - Good Buy Or Goodbye? [View article]
    Based on your own words you've been wrong an awful lot on Brazil for a few years now. I say find a new subject to cover. This country is in the toilet, being run by crooks and won't get better without a massive social/political upheaval.

  • What To Expect From Vale's Q3 2015 [View article]
    I agree completely, so why are these guys so insistent on investing now? It wouldn't be quite so bad if they were buying for the first time, but the majority of them have been singing the same "Buy Vale" song for years now, as if being a few years early on the stock will get them better returns than being a month or so late from "picking the bottom." It makes no sense.

  • Why I Still Like Disney [View article]
    Not only has the dividend been changed to semi-annual it has been raised twice--Dec 14, and June 15, and may well be raised again this December. For those looking for a growth stock with a growth dividend, what could be better!!??

  • What To Expect From Vale's Q3 2015 [View article]
    You bulls have been wrong for years and still like to lose money. I repeat what I've said here for years: Wait to buy Vale when the market in iron ore turns and the appearance of some semblance of an honest government in terms of allowing businesses to operate unencumbered by ridiculous labor rules and taxes (not to forget blatant corruption) takes hold. Until that time you will remain losers.

  • GE to split new energy technologies into new unit [View news story]
    What all these actions (whatever label GE puts on them) have in common so far is that shareholders haven't seen any money from any of them.

    I've been saying the same thing for years. Too bad nobody in GG listens to us. We couldn't do any worse running the joint than the mopes in there now!
