  • Huntington Bancshares Surpasses My Price Target; Now What? [View article]
    I was looking for a small bank to play the banking rebound, and bought them at 6 and more at 9. They've certainly done better than my TBTF bank Bank of America, which I've held for about 10 years, back when they were $60 a share and paid a good dividend. I never would have guessed that 6 years after The Great Recession they'd still be treading water. HBAN's been a much better run bank.

  • This High-Dividend Stock Yields Over 11%, Has 36% Cash Flow Growth, Goes Ex-Dividend Soon [View article]
    I was just thinking as I read this, how could things be looking so favorable yet the market sending this company's stock so rapidly down.

    I'm long DLNG, but unlike most of my stocks, I don't reinvest the dividends. I'm a slow learner, but I think Greek shipping companies, even before the Greek Euro drama, have an added element of risk, like Chinese companies but to a smaller degree.

  • Brookfield Renewable sees below long-term average hydroelectric generation [View news story]
    it seems to me that BEP could hedge their hydroelectric with solar. When one decreases, I'd think it would be often offset by the other increasing.

  • Aflac And The Notion Of 'Going Nowhere' [View article]
    I bought, as part of a monthly purchase plan, 13.915 shares for $200 on 3/9/2009, or $14.37/share. Obviously, I should have bet the farm at that price, but somehow it wasn't obvious to me at the time. Just one year earlier on 4/30/2008 I had paid $66.90/share.
    My point is that Aflac has had some volatile periods in a basically slow moving share price. I'm okay with holding on, but even with dividends reinvested it's been an okay performer at best. I'm hopeful, but not convinced, that they will eventually be perceived as undervalued. Also, I hold the stock outside of an IRA and don't want to pay the capital gains on the sale.

  • Kinder Morgan Continues Down Unsustainable Path [View article]
    Difference, not world of difference. When upstream feels ill, downstream catches a cold.

  • Kinder Morgan: You Sell, I'll Buy [View article]
    You state: "Keep in mind that these warrants were trading for as high as $5 each a few months ago and will likely trade higher as their numbers decrease."

    The price of the warrants has nothing to do with the quantity of warrants outstanding, they are, like all options, only a reflection of the underlying stock and the time value of the warrant.

    Yep, that's me. The energy party was a blast. Last one out, please turn off the lights.

  • Recent Buy - Qualcomm Inc. [View article]
    Good luck. I first bought them in Jan 2012 at $57/share, and then thrice more, including $62.75 last week. Each time has been 50 shares. There's been a lot of negative news in the last 18 months that is resolving itself and they're really being shareholder friendly lately. So I think that the risk-reward looks pretty favorable.

  • Stocks set for ugly Monday open as Greece rejects austerity [View news story]
    My sister, who lives in Greece, said this:

    "So, Report from Athens:  the situation has become dire.  Every day, the line up at the ATM to get 60 euros, and no idea of when the banks will open. That's all we talk about. Fear. Worry.  As I saw in a cartoon in the NY Times, the referendum on Sunday is choosing between which kind of poverty you prefer, austerity (that's done nothing but cripple the economy) or bankruptcy (and total uncertainty).  (And not even the weather is good this summer -- clouds and rain!) "

  • Coal companies jump as Supreme Court strikes down EPA mercury rules [View news story]
    I haven't seen the results of fracking, but I have seen the results of coal mining by mountaintop removal. It's nothing that a few thousand years of slow natural processes won't cure.
