  • Retirement Strategy: Selling Exxon Mobil Goes Against The Grain Of A Dividend Growth Investor [View article]
    I hope you're right RS about 6-9 months ... my reasoning is I DONT want it to move up until I'm able to build a position through Computershare. In fact, kinda hope it takes even longer for price to recover:)

  • Verizon: Does Current Price War Mean Long-Term Damage? [View article]
    Agree with being diversified but I don't believe in being diversified for the sake of being diversified. For example, I am going to buy pretty much only oil and telecom in the short term. It will skew my portfolio. But that's ok. Eventually oil and telecom will rise and, say, consumer and tech will drop. Then I will try to hammer on companies in those sectors. As long as I'm focused on long term and don't worry about short term balance issues that seems to me to be a good way to diversify while still trying to buy value. Not many deals out there except for oil and telecom right now. I wish you the best!

  • Why I Purchased Exxon Mobil And Chevron This Week [View article]
    Who do we think will own the "alternative energy" sources? Exxon, Chevron, and the like will. I believe these companies are multibillion $$$ companies because they know all things energy. I don't understand the thought process and the "what ifs" with the concerns of depletion of oil. Exxon will see the changes coming and adapt long before we know about the tech. JMHO. Besides, oil is used in almost everything right now. So, not much will change in the next 20 years IMO.

  • Stocks For The Long-Run: Starbucks [View article]
    I don't understand why some would pay $150/month for cable TV but millions do. Netflix and Hulu are $8 each/month. Good enough for me. So, I guess it's less about price and more about experience and on demand products? I guess chalk it up to everybody really is different.

    I think this article needs to be removed ... because I'm adding COP monthly and I don't want others running the price up;) Seriously though, good article. Thanks for sharing.

  • Exxon Mobil Currently 17.6% Undervalued Based On Dividend Discount Model [View article]
    Great article! I like the thought process behind Exxon building shareholder value with a combo of dividend growth and share repurchases. Justifies the below 3% divi yield. My concern is more about yield on cost. So, this thought process is very beneficial for me. Nice work!

    I learned very early to ignore analysts and trust myself. I will continue with that concept.
