  • 2 Reasons To Buy ICICI Bank [View article]
    I've owned ICICI Bank since 2007 and it's been a very rocky ride. The dividends have never been very high and they're only paid out once a year around July 1.

    Perhaps oscillating stock prices come with the territory when you invest in an emerging market, but if you're more of a buy and hold, there are many better options elsewhere.

    If you want to ride this to a 25% gain and then get out, hop aboard.

  • Kinder Morgan picks Pemex subsidiary for Tennessee-to-Texas pipeline project [View news story]
    You're right, I didn't catch that the 500,000 dk's was a daily figure. That is a lot of nat gas.

    A dekatherm (10 therms), for those not in the know, is equivalent to the use of 1000 cubic feet of gas (Mcf), which is enough to meet the needs of an average home for four days.

    One hundred thousand dekatherms is enough nat gas to supply the needs of 1000-1100 homes for one year.

  • Disney: Guardians Of Earnings Growth [View article]
    In March 2009 I bought some Disney for $17.36/share. Using that as a starting point shows a CAGR of around 35.7%. What does this mean? Timing is everything.

  • Philip Morris: The Dividend Will Eventually Be At Risk [View article]
    My son and his wife, both smokers, first switched to clove cigarettes. They didn't smell bad like tobacco does, but inhaling them caused plenty of health issues. Then they switched to e-cigs 2 years ago. They started with lower cost versions and moved up a bit. They both seem happy enough to switch to this delivery system and it's not primarily due to the cost, which is certainly lower, or some fashion statement. It's due to a perceived better health risk. As a second-hand breather of the vapor, I don't like it but it's much less annoying than cigarette smoke.

    I am long PM, but I've reduced my holdings. It's true that PM is a very stockholder friendly company and they have a great track record. However, I'm concerned enough about the future to reduce my holdings by 50%. Guess I just didn't drink the Kool-aid (Nebraska's state soft drink since 1998!) of the true believers.

  • 2015: Hertz Narrows Its Moat [View article]
    Your summary's third bullet point says the article will show why now is a good time to invest. Your conclusion's final lines advise that now is a good time to sell, not buy.

    I tend to agree with your conclusion's sentiment, but your advice is confusing.

  • ModernGraham Quarterly Valuation Of Aflac Inc. [View article]
    That's a pretty large differential between your ModernGraham valuation of $190 and a market valuation of $65. I started making monthly purchases of AFL in 2007, including a purchase of 14 shares for $14.37 on 3/9/2009. Even so, my annualized return is only 11%. I remain hopeful that the stock will move towards the MG valuation, but am not really pleased about its performance to date. It seems to be taking a hit due to its reliance on Japan for the bulk of its revenue.

    I don't understand the reason for a buy zone. Why not just use a single value, below which the stock is a good buy?

  • What Verizon's Expansion Into Canada Could Mean [View article]
    Your article is very good, but it only covers what Verizon's entrance into the Canadian marketplace will mean for Canada? What does it mean for Verizon and its shareholders? I'd like to see Verizon go into Mexico too and make for a North American roaming-free phone zone.

  • Profit From Rising Interest Rates With This Sector -- While You Still Can [View article]
    I think the market will see that gains due to rising rates causing fence-straddlers to buy will probably be short-lived and therefore not increase the homebuilder stocks. It happens often that a company delivers a great quarter but mediocre guidance and the stock is pummeled. The market's always looking long-term.

  • Kinder Morgan Management: Have Your Cake And Eat It Too [View article]
    I had 116.000 shares. TDAmeritrade gave me 1 share and $61.52. According to them, the dividend was a 1.01477021:1 stock split. This means I should have received 117.713344 shares. So my .713344 shares were given to me as $61.52 cash, or the rate of $86.24/share. On 5/15, the low for the day was $86.23, so it's within the range. Am I paranoid, or do the brokers always give you the worst price of the day?

    I bought KMR recently through TDAmeritrade, and as they pay via stock splits I assumed I'd collect the dividend in additional shares. But they only gave me the full shares, not the fractional shares, which they gave me as cash. I had to specifically tell them to DRIP the shares.
    Long KMR, KMI/WT.
