  • How To Pick The Best Dividend Stocks (Part 1): Setting Up The Initial Screen [View article]
    @jbp3, wasn't the cost basis of GE reset to the current price on the day you inherited the shares? Good advice on the problem with owning big capital gains in taxable accounts.

  • Verizon Communications Is My Favorite Idea That Everyone Knows, But That No One Understands [View article]
    Thanks for writing a thought-provoking article. I own VZ, but it is not a SWAN investment. The industry is highly capital-intensive and filled with deep-pocketed competition.

    Would you please explain what your article title means?

  • Gilead Sciences Reminds Me Of Apple Circa June 2013 [View article]
    there's a big difference in the price action in Apple in 2013 and GILD recently. Apple fell from $700/share to $400/share, then turned. Gilead has been mostly moving within a range. It's a lot easier to continue to hold Gilead and wait for more positive news to push the stock up than it was to hold Apple when its stock was cratering.

  • Disney's Increased Profit Margins Helped Increase The Return On Equity [View article]
    Disney's theme parks involve too much capital assets to allow the assert turnover number to move much higher. As many movies as they do and considering most are big hits, it'll be hard for them to improve on these numbers without a major shift or addition to their revenue streams. I'm long DIS, but an concerned that gains going forward will be harder to achieve. It's expected that Star Wars and Age of Ultron will be big.

  • Gilead notifies healthcare providers of potential risks with Harvoni or Sovaldi in patients taking antiarrhythmic [View news story]
    My father was prescribed Amiodarone for some ten years due to his afib, but he only saw his cardiologist when he was forced to. suddenly, in the space of just two days, he lost the ability to breathe on his own. After 3 weeks of 24 hour CPAC use and all that implies, he asked to have it removed and died in a few minutes. Amiodarone is one very scary drug with a very long half life; after witnessing its effects, i would never take it.

  • Today at the telecom price war: T-Mobile upgrades, Sprint picking up tabs [View news story]
    I had tmobile for years until a about 5 years ago. I live in the DC area, and they were cheap but had poor quality. Also, their customer service was fine if you thought your time had no value, because dealing with them was a real pain. I switched to ATT via Consumer Cellular and have seen much better reliability and fantastic customer service. I moved to NW Montana about a year ago and only VZ works up here. I used Sprint about 15 years ago and it was abysmal, but 15 years is a long time.

  • Disney: What The Star Wars And Frozen 2 Announcements Mean For Shareholders [View article]
    Don't wait for the split, wait for the big pullback. You'll find it's much harder to buy when your losses are mounting, but that's what you should wait for.

    I was making monthly purchases of Disney through the 2008-2009 stock debacle, and only because of that was I able to buy DIS for as low as $17.36/share. Without raising a sweat, I have 178 shares of DIS bought for $100/month from 6/2007 to 7/2011 plus DRIP'ing the small dividends.

    Because of that, I strongly suggest you implement a monthly plan; I used sharebuilder, but there were fees associated with that. You might want to look into LOYAL3 to buy Disney fee free every month. The market will pullback someday, and the longer it takes, the larger the pullback!

  • Kinder Morgan: Trees Don't Grow To The Sky [View article]
    KMI, in the person of Richard Kinder, has excellent leadership and has been a great investment over the years. There are risks, but they get the benefit of the doubt from me due to their track record.
    One error in your article is your reference of €1.25M instead of €1.25B.

  • A Closer Look At Targa Resources Partners' Distributable Cash Flow As Of Q4 2014 [View article]
    KMI is not an MLP.

    I've owned NGLS for some eight years and believe that they have very good management. I expect them to manage their way out of this temporary difficulty.

    I'm not familiar with the formulas used here, and the math is off in the paragraph starting with "thus, the multiple for QCOM..." I'd appreciate any further explanation. Thanks.
