  • BP Approaching A Buy At Current Prices [View article]
    Thanks for the response Veritas1010. I don't have shares yet and was hoping to invest directly without fees (or reduced). Morningstar says that BP offers direct stock purchasing but I'm not really finding info on how to do that. Being a small time investor I was hoping to setup a $25/month automatic investment like I'm doing with other stocks through Comoutershare. Thanks again!

  • Exxon 'Immobile' - No 3% Yield And No Plans To Form An MLP [View article]
    Good article. I have wondered about Exxon and the sub 3% dividend. At the same time, their dividend growth has been pretty solid. And, of course, they are quite solid overall. I am going to do monthly investments in COP and XOM. I think in the long run I'll be happy with both.

  • My Income Portfolio Of 30: 2nd Half Of 2013 Review [View article]
    Thanks for your response Kang. You said exactly what I have been thinking and this is to cut out the "gambling" and stick with the quality stocks at an attractive buy price. I have 2 speculative stocks I am going to sell tomorrow in order to buy a quality dividend company. That will make my entire portfolio driven by quality divi companies, as well as ETFs. I feel very comfortable with that. Let the compounding do its magic. Thanks again for your input.

  • My Income Portfolio Of 30: 2nd Half Of 2013 Review [View article]
    Well done my friend! You got a new follower here. I have a question for you and all my fellow divi investors ... Is there room in a portfolio for 1 or 2 speculative investments or is it wise just to stick with solid, dividend paying companies? This is a question I have been pondering for quite sometime. I think I know the direction I am leaning but I'm curious where the collective wisdom of this site will lead me. Thanks!

  • Coca-Cola Still A Great Stock: Here's Why [View article]
    Nice article on Coke. Added it to my portfolio when it dropped under $39. Great stock, great beverages.

    With that, to add to some of the pointless drivel about how harmful soda is, if Americans understood how to live in moderation with anything in life, there would not be a conversation about this. This argument could very well be based on "shorting a fitness center" vs. "going long a 'diabetes cure.'" My Grandma died from diabetes. It wasn't the Coke that killed her ... it was the opposition to change her over-indulging ways. She only would eat junk food and refused to exercise at all. I chalk that up to being lazy and apathetic, not having a Coke from time to time.

    FWIW.

  • Why Did Warren Buffett Purchase Exxon Mobil Stock? [View article]
    I am long BP and CVX in my IRA. BP is my beaten-down, low valuation, higher risk higher return investment, while CVX is my solid oil investment. I like both. Thought about XOM, but I like CVX more for the long haul. Nice article!

  • Starbucks: Even With This Great Run, Its Still Undervalued [View article]
    I am still kicking myself for not buying at $45. I like to invest in great companies that I frequent because I feel I am a good judge of products and I can see how business at local stores is going. I love Starbucks! But, I didn't buy because of concerns the stock might be overvalued. Now, I hope and wait for a pullback to buy SBUX for my IRA. You've given me much to think about. Thanks for the article.
