  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Why Chevron Is Undervalued Right Now [View article]
    I am very happy Dividend Garden! Thanks. Currently I am up 4.79% on Chevron. Honestly though, I still would like to see a decent pullback. I would have no problem sacrificing short term gains for long term rewards. Especially because I am moving away from non-dividend paying companies. I love the idea of income no matter the state of the market at any given time.

  • Why Chevron Is Undervalued Right Now [View article]
    Bought Chevron today my friends! I've been wanting it to fall to about $100, but it may not ever hit that again. Pouring more $$$ into my IRA just in case it does, though. Happy investing!

  • The Oil Spill Settlement Could Bring BP To Its Knees [View article]
    I live in NW Indiana ... you mean I'm going to be a millionaire from BP? Sweet! This is a different way to "invest." ;) Do you live here too granger? I swear, we have all kinds of concerns here. Gary makes this area the armpit of America with all the pollution coming from them.

  • Chevron Is A Strong Buy [View article]
    I've really been looking at adding Chevron to my IRA portfolio. I have been hoping for 10-15% pullback but as soon as I get enough cash built up I'm a buyer. I'm not so sure there will be a pullback either. Great company for relatively cheap price.

  • How Patient Should An Investor Be With Dividend Stocks? [View article]
    Your explanation of compounding and the idea of how some perceive stagnation of a dividend stock as "dead money" is exactly why I am actually annoyed with this ongoing bull market. I want so-called "dead money" stocks with a DRIP on them all. More shares for cheap. Great article as usual, Tim. You have a new follower:) Long BP and soon to be CVX.

    Not only a pullback in MCD but a 3-5% pullback in overall market is imminent. I'd like to get my hands on MCD stock but for now I'm waiting.

  • Intel: $48 Per Share In 4 Years [View article]
    Even as Goldman Sachs are telling people to "sell! $16 is coming!," correct me if I am wrong, they have only reduced their holding by 2mm while still sitting on 35mm shares. Hmmm ... Something is not right here. I call foul on another two-faced analyst. Fwiw.

  • Carrizo Oil & Gas Significantly Undervalued [View article]
    Hey Clayton. Great summary of Carrizo. I found them last summer/fall and bought just before Thanksgiving 2012 after thoroughly studying them. I thought they were undervalued then, but now even more so! I think they will be a mainstay in my portfolio for a while.
