My neighbors laughed at me with my CDs. If you want to be greedy and go after the high returns
then you have RISK. When the bell rings go to reality class. Hee-Hee-Hee, those of us who laugh
last, laugh best. Have fun on your way to the poor-house, you greedy, live for the moment people!
I find this so funny. I remember years ago many laughed at me for owing such a Conservative investment like CTL. My original shares have cost me about $12 after splits and I'm getting a $2+ dividend. I'm still happy with CTL
Equities are superior to CDs. Look at Bank profits, Preferred Dividend rates, followed by common stock dividend rates, then CD rates. CDs help banks make profit and help CEOs make tremendous salaries at the CD holder's expense.
I am upset with CenturyLink (CTL) because of the way they made their announcement. If the board member were thinking, they would have realized they were going to cause a problem.
At this point, I would not be surprised if CTL is a buyout target with a price target of $41 or a tad higher. i do not think the board of directors is stupid. They may want to sell the firm and realized $41 / share is about all they can get for it.
I thought CD was for senior citizens or was good investment back in 1990s. Only uneducated, unskilled and no talent still have CD. And you should know not all stocks go straight up but its better then 1% interest.
And if your not lazy and always keep eye on your stocks and not fall in love with your stocks, most likely you will make money with the stock market no matter if market is going up or down. Last time I lost money is stock was in 2001, every since been up 40%+ annually.
Not one person here has lost as much as ten cents if they hold their position. The dividend yield may be down to around 5% on their original investment which is a lot better than 1% on a Jumbo CD. The smart ones invest in more than one stock. and expect to lose in some. They only need one or two good pops. The CD player needs to have other income or a pot full of cash. Your like a union worker or a government worker. Take what you get and follow the rules. The one that invests in CTL and takes the risk but has a chance to eat in the five star while the CD investor eats pizza out of a box forever. I am thankful that there are people like you that are satisfied. That gives people like me a better chance. Stay the course.
really dude, You have a loser strategy. These people still have a 5%+ return. I would rather sink all my money on black 34 then buy a CD ....if you own a CD and fessup that is embarrasing
