  • Philip Morris Vs. Altria Group Continues To Track The Dollar  [View article]
    I feel that with fuel prices dropping the demand for MO here in the US will increase.

    I purchased 1200 shares in 2011 & have reinvested the dividends to currently have over 1540 shares.

    That has lowered my Dollar Cost Averaging to around $21.39 a share.

    That has given me a 153.70% return on my original investment in four years.

  • Is Altria Still A Super Income Stock?  [View article]
    I also own both and have had 97% ROI on MO and 48% ROI on PM in a three year period.

    The volatility of the foreign exchange markets has more of an affect on PM rather than MO.

  • July Dividend Champion Portfolio  [View article]
    I am a self taught investor that started when I was eight years old with my brother.
    We invested money from cutting grass over two years in mutual funds in the late 1950's and were able to pay for our college educations debt free.

    This was without government help.

    What we need today is government to get out of our way and allow free markets to determine price.

    I tried "professional" investment advice but not much gain in my value because they always took their costs out up front no matter how the market did or the "best performing" options they controlled.

    I went on my own and after the 2000 meltdown and used the "DRIP" portfolio for my investments. (Dividend Reinvestment Portfolio).

    When I would get paid a dividend it would automatically be reinvested back into the stock with more shares purchased.

    When I take the dividend and reinvest it the actual out of pocket expense is zero therefore decreases the average cost per share each time I reinvest the dividend!

    These companies have diversified well enough to avoid the pitfalls that have already been absorbed and insulated by spin-offs.

    The new economies of the developing countries are increasing in their demand for tobacco products.

    The legal constraints are not present as they are here.

  • 2 Giant Telecom Stocks To Profit From Now  [View article]
    I have over five hundred shares of both AT&T and VZ because of their dividends. I have reinvested the dividends to buy more stock and that continues to increase.

    They have complimented each other in the value fluctuations and have as a whole increase in value.

  • The Justice Department files suit, seeking to block the merger between AT&T (T -4.1%) and T-Mobile (DTEGY.PK -6.4%). "AT&T's elimination of T-Mobile as an independent low-priced rival would remove a significant competitive force from the market," reads the complaint.
