Sell now and buy coal. That's where the money is. Or vacuum tubes, yes that's it, vacuum tubes.
I guess I am just as fat dumb and happy as when I bought GILD around 6 for a long term investment around 11 years ago, not a trade. If I were a trader I would agree with you jserper. Best of luck either way.
BIIB exhibited a dead cat bounce this AM followed by a drop. This is quite typical. Not to worry. The real question is where will it be in a few years... it will be up. Set it and forget it.
From the net: "Jonathan Swift's masterful satire, "A Modest Proposal," [mockingly!] proposes to solve the devastating poverty in Ireland by selling poor children as food for wealthy families. Swift goes on to explain how this would solve all of Ireland's problems from domestic abuse to poverty. "
It seems as though the responders to your post "unadulterated"are not particularly well versed in satire. Perhaps I might suggest they consult "A Modest Proposal" by Jonathan Swift as a primer?
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Also happy I held on to Kraft... luck more than skill on my part, I must admit. No plans to sell in the near future.
Unfortunately for those who have been in C a long time the past is only prologue. There are those of us who bought in more recently in the 40 to 50 range and are doing nicely. The only real question is, from here, is C going up or down. My take is up, especially when interest rates are raised. Best of luck longs.
Just a little reminder... not to be a smarty pants... buy low, sell high. Now is the time to be buying COP and others (CVX, XOM). Dollar cost average in and DRIP the dividends. Look back in a few years and be pleased with yourself. Best of luck longs.
I refer you to stocktorevil's comments. The facts are "due" to reality.
As ts4676 indicated, the stress test is the hurdle to be jumped before any significant raise in the dividend.
To neilyoungster, yes Mr. Institutionalized has been distorting the facts for the longest time... that is apparently his life's work from what I can see of his posts.
