  • Johnson & Johnson: The 'Tragedy' Of Paying 17 Times Earnings [View article]
    TF17 - How is it possible to get 8% TIAA annuity. Perhaps you got it years ago when rates were very high? I have TIAA as well, I don't see anywhere close to 8%.

    Buyandhold 2012 - "I am not buying JNJ at this time." perfect bottom line.

    With a correction you can get it for 20% less, with a crash you can get it at 50% less, i.e. around $50. After you buy at those levels you could hold onto it pretty much forever. Staying on the sidelines is best at this time, but our minds are restless, and we may not be able to do that.
    One needs patience of a saint, very few of us are saints.

  • Microsoft's Nokia Acquisition Likely Leading To A Large Write-Off, A New Strategy Emerges [View article]
    I have tmobile's version of 520, its LUMIA 521, it has free GPS, no service needed. I do not have service, before leaving home, I set the destination address using wifi, and save it. I believe you have to down load 'here maps' using wifi, they are free.
    Great value for the money. You can take pictures, save them on a SD card, other phones don't have SD card.

    I bought tmobile's phone from Microsoft store online.

  • Cisco Systems: Unloved, Underestimated And Very Undervalued [View article]
    I can relate to your comment, I was one such share holder who made upper management very rich, me lost money. Finally got rid of Cisco shares last December after holding for decades for a loss. Well done Mr. Chambers with your own account.

  • Cisco Systems: Unloved, Underestimated And Very Undervalued [View article]
    Sales guy heading a high tech company! Finance, MBAs, marketing, sales, liberal arts types should stick with their fields instead of running high tech companies, unless they have degrees and prior actual work experience designing/inventing in science and engineering, patents to their names would be even better. See what appended to IBM, HP, MSFT, INTEL, those are just a few that come to mind that have been ruined after they were taken over by above mentioned.
    I sold my CSCO shares after holding for 15+ years, only person who got very rich during this period was CEO John Chambers at the expense of share holders.

    Microsoft should stay on course with Windows phones, soon it will be the computer instead of a desktop or laptop. People who have little to no tech background keep singing the same song 'MS should be out of phones', they say the same with Intel.

    @alphavision4 - I have the least expensive windows phone from T-Mobile, Nokia 521 - I have no cellular service, yet GPS works fine, I use it, it paid itself just from that one function alone.
    I have a feeling some of the problems people mentioned have nothing to do with Nokia or Microsoft, perhaps the problem lies with carriers and slow software upgrades on the businesses end, they are not keeping up with changes.

  • Straight Talk On The 4% Rule [View article]
    DVK - Thanks for all the time you have been putting into writing these articles, they are very informative and useful.
    I wish Israelsen's grid cells also showed how many years money will last in each of the scenarios. Not everyone retiring at age 65, will see 35 years of retirement (i.e. will reach 100 years of young age!).

    Your other article about you purchasing dividend growth etf SCHD was surprising to me, you purchased when the market is very high, and current dividend yield is around 2.7%. It could take years for SCHD yield to reach 4%, at this point in time parking in cash, and waiting for market correction would have been better? In case of correction or crash, principal will go down, and for unforeseen reason you are forced to withdraw, there will be a loss of principal for many of us.

  • Intel Is Mispriced And Positioned For IoT Growth [View article]
    Intel was managed by finance, marketing, and just MBA types. Intel board members are responsible for missing mobile. Intel's chairman still is from finance, he was there when they missed mobile, and he is sill sitting in the same chair while Apple, and Qualcomm leap frogged them. Intel's board members I am sure will still get reelected, shareholders have no unions, we are fragmented.

  • Is Intel Stock Worth Considering Right Now? [View article]
    Giving up on mobile is a very bad idea, as bad as them missing on mobile. Future is all mobile, you will be able to carry server power in a mobile device. Intel's management were MBA, finance, marketing types who did not have a vision, only because they have no science or engineering background.

  • Why I Purchased Schwab's U.S Dividend Equity ETF As A Dividend Growth Investment [View article]
    Have you seen the per share distribution history by each year, I tried to find it quickly, but could not locate it. By what percentage did it increase.

  • Why I Purchased Schwab's U.S Dividend Equity ETF As A Dividend Growth Investment [View article]
    When you buy dividend growth stocks, you will get higher dividend payments as income every year than previous years, regardless of whether the share price has gone up or down. For those seeking income, and will not be reinvesting dividends, how will SCHD increase payments every year. It seems yield will be around same number year after year.

  • AT&T Clearance Sale Going On Now [View article]
    Ok, what about waiting for T share price to come down, due to the reasons stated above.

  • AT&T Clearance Sale Going On Now [View article]
    Wouldn't it be better to wait for T to complete DTV acquisition or not. If they acquire it, way too many T shares will be floating in the market than ever before, and some former DTV owners might not want to hold on to T shares, And an impending market correction or crash. All of the stated reasons point T shares downwards.
    DTV does not pay dividends I think, T would have to cough up dividends for the newly minted T shares, how will T do that when DTV could not?
