    Tig, a PE of 90 was probably good enough reason to move on.

    Sounds like you were a Mississippi high-roller on that one!

    Your ahead of the game now, but you know the ups & downs of any stock.

    The buy at 34 is looking good for you.

  • davemartin74575 davemartin74575 Jun 20, 2014 12:26 AM Flag

    Any regrets about selling at 36.55?

    ..."scarier nod to the White House." Excuse typo above. Spellcheck strikes again.

    I hear ya Tiggy. Gotta give the scarier nod to the nod to the White House

    If this guy is really a Professor, I'd be interested in knowing where and what he Professes.

    A Professor seeking an answer to "dividend safety" on a public message board? THAT scares me.

    It didn't kill the other players though. Both teams had play under the same circumstances. Spurs in six.

    Wrong call Davidson.

    Regardless, Spurs will squash either ECF team in 6.

    Should have stuck it out. Everything will ultimately settle down. A couple of years from now, little will have changed. I hope it is Roth funds you have for retirement. Don't need to pay MRD's.

    Tell you what. I don't give a ratsass how anybody sleeps except me. Like I said, being Indepedent means more that political affiliation. It means I am independent of anything high office throws at me in every respect. Political or otherwise.

    I prepared for my family's future regardless of what is going on
    In DC. I have to admit it's a little tougher now with government exploding and healthcare about to become a nightmare unless Congress can beat it to death. Well see how that goes.

    As for future elections, I really don't care. Out here in Ca., the only elected officials will be a democrat regardless of qualifications. No better examples than Pelosi and Maxine Waters to name just 2. I won't waste my time by voting ever again. It's a lost cause in most cases.

    So with that, I move on and compensate as best as possible by controlling that which I have the ability to control. I can't do a damn thing about sanctuary cities, the extremely cost of living in Ca., local taxes and the undocumented illegals that sap everything imaginable in the way of state and county services.

    It is what it is Anon. I just do the best I can to stay ahead of the pack.

    No last licks necessary my friend. I've always felt this country is about 30% partisan to the major parties. Toss in the Libertarians and Indepedents and there you have the electorate. If you can call it an electorate.

    I voted for Clinton the first time and make no apologies for doing so. You see, im actually one of the Indy crowd. Even though we have little to say about outcome. The Electoral College will trump most any popular vote as you know.

    I think Rubio will get trotted out in 16. I can't even imagine what the outcome will be. If he's smart, he'll seek counsel from Rev (?) Wright to plan his campaign.

    Regardless of the outcome, I've made provisions to take care of my family and our son no matter who runs the country. I can't trust anyone or anything to provide for ourselves. We are not a family of takers.

    At least he'll never have need for an Obama phone. Unless...

    Regards again from the decidedly left coast,
    Dave.

    I don't know if you've gotten the latest ploy. Email with a file pdf attachment. Very vague as to content in some cases, or promises of wealth that is awaiting for me to claim by opening the file...

    Well anon, if it isn't this two-bit outfit, it will be other worthless POS's with the same come-on that will load up my (our) junk file.

    Interestingly, you bring up Seeking Alpha. I remember a few months ago i I read a Seeking Alpha article about something of interest on the Yahoo financial page and I either requested info on something in the story or rated something pertaining to the article.

    About a week later, I was being swamped with stuff from Alpha. It finally stopped. I could be wrong, but I have always suspected Alpha somehow led to the Spamners, Nigerians and Pharmacies. I say that because I rarely got spam of this sort for all the years I have had the Internet.

    I forgot to mention I also get hammered by several Canadian online prescription companies pushing discounted prescriptions and of course Viagara. They hit me almost as often as the Spammers.

    I own T stock and that message board is now getting spam very similar to what our email account receives. Usually a one-liner touting a company as "Ready To Break Out Tomorrow." Then a brief bunch of bull about it being "Sure Fire To Soar." You know the routine.

    It's bad enough putting up with the T trollers, but now the beginnings of Spam is surfacing on what used to be a respectable message board. I just wish I didn't have to see this stuff period.

    If you learn of a away to stop the onslaught, let me know.

    Regards,
    Dave.

    How the frock did we get on this merry-go-round of spam @anon? Got to admit, this is a first for a spammer to diss a full fledged spam campaign. Might be a psychological ploy?

    Regardless, I wish I knew how to block all the spammers fake user id's that pile up throughout the day. Quite some time ago, there was an option setting that would re-direct unwanted email back to the originator. Now, it is a one way street. We get full-fledged bombardment and no way to stop it that I know of.

    Don't know about you anon, but I also get plenty of krap from the Nigerian Connection about millions of dollars that awaits me. All I need to do is give them every piece of info about me and my identity. Then, a courier will personally deliver it, or I can have it direct deposited in my account.

    The scams run the gamut from a dying woman wanting me to use her money to help mankind (somehow), to political prisoner family members that need to get money out of...name the country...to religious appeals for all kinds of help to send funds out of some foreign bank to me.

    The creativity they put into their scripts are amazing. It seems there is a reality show lurking in the scams that might be a hit. If Honey Boo Boo and Duck Hunters can score big ratings, some Hollywood outfit should be able to design a show about scams.

    Let's see how long this bogus campaign runs.

    As I wrote last week, we part company on politics. But that's ok, we each share our values and I accept that. There was a fair amount of political jawboning going on as you pointed out. That's to be expected in any political race.

    Where I begin my personal hate for the current president is with a guy by the name of Bill Ayers and his cohorts and ends with all the covering up at Benghazi.

    There is so much in between that I don't even care to go into it. You seem content with Republicans being a bunch of obstructionists and knuckleheads. I won't argue any of that. We all have our opinions on what's best for our country.

    But I won't accept a president that has the likes of Ayers and their Marxist/socialist ideologies transforming our country into a European type economy and increasing debt and government dependency. Not my cup of tea.

    In the meantime, all I can do is bide my time and wait for another winner to be the face if the Democratic Party in the next election. Hillary Clinton. Can hardly wait to hear her campaign platform...

    I remember Dynaeltctron from the distant past. I owned an outfit called Jetronic Industries about the same time. Bought and sold enough stocks and finally settled on a bunch of mutual funds and an 8 year variable annuity. All did reasonably well and generated about 8-10 percent after the expenses.

    Then I changed strategy as I got older and feel comfortable with the all eggs in one basket approach with no maintenance fees and a conservative 6% return + the modest stock appreciation I mentioned earlier. But with a mindful eye on current events, I wouldn't hesitate to pull the trigger and sell.

    I too was a CNBC fan, but when Mark Haines (Haynes?) p#$%$ed away, I cut to Fox. Seeings how you don't care much for Fox anything, I guess we part company on politics. I really didn't like watching CNBC due to its Democratic Party agenda.

    There is nothing that party represents that appeals to me. Never has. I'm a lot more comfortable with Fox everything for that reason. Needless to say, I can't stand anything about the current president or his administration.

    I don't know if you remember the old FNN that broadcast fron Riverside County, Ca, I watched Bill Griffeth and Sue Hererra when they were kids on FNN. That and Mark Haines was one reason I followed CNBC until they became blatantly Democratic and Mark p#$%$ed. Fox at least brings democrats into the conversation and doesn't show their disdain as do the Maddow's, Olbermann's, Sharpton's, et al and that ilk #$%$ociated with the NBC network.

    Bloomberg is ok, but I am comfortable with the Fox personalities until Juan Williams surfaces. Then, I grab the remote! He used to be ok as an accasional guest, but then went over the top after PBS fired his #$%$ and Fox picked him up. Talk about loyalty. No one at NBC saw fit to hire him full time except Fox. Go figure.

    Taking off for a weekend getaway with family and kids to Big Bear for a break in the action until Monday. Catch you again if you're still around.
