Only been banging around the Oils for a few years,but an investor for over 60 years.This was a tough decesion,with future growth in mind.The industry is ripe for take overs,mergers.Cash will be
king,and Debt is a trap.This maybe a buying opportunity.Dividend can be raised in better industry
Climate.I'm sure NOV understands their market,business. stuce
Ed C, I saw the spike to $1 ,then settle back to 80"s. I wonder if new CFO will educate the Bakers that more
money can be made by enhancing the CRVP Company's value.and as a major stockholder participate with
that form of growth,and stop #$%$ on the stockholders as they have done in the past.In the long run
the Bakers are shooting themselves in the foot,while growth/value could be added every year.Maybe the CFO
can lead the way. Maybe I'm a DREAMER.. stuce
I like how the spelling of professor,was spelled peo -fessor.I haven't watched Cramer in months.I can't follow his "basic's".But I'm still watching JOY and would
like to own again.I feel correction has been in sectors,and with total market correction,bargains will be sweeter.So I.m dragging my heels on buying Targets.
I bought a little JOYG back when it was $17.50,rode it up to $69,got nervous and sold.I,m looking
to buy in again. JOY is a good company,good products. Miners cap. expenses are being slashed
in this climate,But sooner or later equipment gets replaced. I 'm taking a bath on FCX,and will
dollar average down.I still believe inflation will return,and these resource/miners/equipment
mfgr will be robust. I think we're having a correction by sectors.stuce
I first got into BTU at $51.45 down from a high of $88=/share.I've dollar averaged that down to $5.85.I may buy another traunch in another dip.I'm studing BTU annual report,and Coal is growing at 5% annual increase.Only in this country
do we castrate the coal industry.
Actually, I believe their coal operations are all above ground,One seam is 85 foot thick.,.no
tunneling.A large amount goes thru Portland then the Orient.Coal usage globally is growing at 5% per year.Only in the USA are castrating ourselves.As it drops,I continue to dollar average down.So I'm for the long pull.Wait til a few more Nat Gas utility sites blow up,as in CT a few years back.
I too chase dividend yield. RDS-B (most friendly issue to US stockholder0. , POT now paying 5.3%
BBL @6.8%,CVX is at 4.6%. I'm also watchen NOV at 4.1% ,RIO@6.1%. If you like SO, other
Utilities to check ,ETR, FE,NGG,SCG,UIL. Buy some dividend stocks,and DRIP them. stuce
MY TEG Shares now converted to WEC plus cash bundle received in account as merger by WEC
is completed.By quick math I got $71.86/share of TEG
walla1957,BTU's revenue off 15% ,but stock is off 95%.I'm dollar averaging my position,I think it's over sold
here. Very cool spring in the Northeast,Maybe a really hot summer,some brown outs and coal
plants come back on line with customers pleading for juice for the A/C units. stuce
sfbusfbu.Thanks I'm going to get a ruling on this when I next meet with my CPA. Explain
UBTI . I did hear a rumble about a $1000 threshold. My CPA was an agent for the IRS.
and she's pretty savy. stuce
Les , We've talked before.Wife bought one bag and one gift certificate last month. Everything was discounted.
store was busy, Kor's was dead.I have my calendar marked Aug 5th for COH earnings.I'm going to wait till
the report,and may buy some more with a 4% dividend I can wait.Coach has been around a long time,lots
of experience.I have faith in them.In fighting if that was it,is over and they will now concentrate on business.
stuce in CT
HoHoterry, I reading I saw a note that if LP's dividend was over $1000 it could trigger an audit.I guess I'll keep bouncing the question off my CPA's knoggin. The article didn't go
into any details,the subject was "what triggers an IRS audit. stuce
Hohoterry, I've had a few MLP's in IRA's ,and just toss the K-1's in the woodstove. I was told at the time
I bought APU it was great for an IRA,but not to exceed say,15% of total. So maybe if the IRA was heavily
weighted with MLP's then the taxman would surface? Added KMP to the IRA recently.I think the Government
gave away the farm with the Roth IRA,we haven't touched ours,and hope we don't have to,just let'em grow.stuce
Leslie .I'm a stubburn swamp yankee.I went to a COH store twice lately.And both times the stores
were busy with people buying.Discounts were offered.A short walk in the mall to KORS.Didn't go in
but watched ,store was almost empty..Attendands were grab-assing from bordum. I still think that
COH had a rough corporate struggle for top dog to replace Lew F. This can be quite destrucktive
to business operations. Lets hope that's behind them and they perform as they did so well in the
past. Buying COH as it drops.Yield good.
I had a chance to see a KORS store last thursday ,twice,they were empty with sales personal ready
to pounce on new customers.They looked bored and were grabassing when they thought nobody was
looking.. Went into COH,a steady trickle of customers.Everybody was buying,some two and three items.
There was 50 discount on everything in the store,off the mfgr ticket price. My thoughts that COH is doing
well in the Orient,and not so good in North America.Earnings still up,but easy to bash.Same thing happened two years ago before COH shot up to $70. I suspect a major "infighting" at corporate looking for Frankforts
job, and loser had to walk.Maybe the decks are cleared now and management can focus on growing
I sent a reply to BlackcrkFarm,but Yahoo's message board is #$%$. I've been a holder of CRVP since 2002
with my buy of CRVP at $4.50 ish. Have dollar averaged down to $1.62.Got with in twenty cents last month.
Where's BlackCreek farm in VT. I bought some Blue Spruce seedlings from Red Rock Farm, in Chelsa,VT.
A day trip from CT,. Stuce
I too have held CRVP for quite some time. They bottled for several labels and ran 3 shifts,and a nephew worked for them.Said they were going balls to the wall.Started buying at $4.50 ish in 2002,averaged down to cost per share of $1.62. Where's BlackcreekFarm? I bought some blue spruce trees in Chelsa,Red rock farm.A day trip from CT
CRVP will not breakout till the stranglehold the Bakers have on the bottom line..This a cash cow for them.Salaries, business trips,annual meet in Florida,landlords for buildings owned and rented to CRVP. Money loan @12%
to CRVP by the Bakers.When attitude changes,then maybe a breakout,with possible sale of company..-stuce
I talk to them everyday,I think they both gave up on CRVP,Said it was "dead money"
I know they sold most of their positons-stuce
Haven't you noticed backyards full of plastic toys,and the kids play with cardboard box something
came in.They get plenty of toys as gifts anyway.So yes shares of TONKA,long since gone,bought
by Schwinn? I was pointing out that stocks should be somthing kids can identify with,like MCD.
Maybe a local bank they pass everyday. Maybe MSFT, Olive Garden ,Brinkers. My son sold his
TONKA and bought Central Maine Power paying 14% dividend.Kids today are spoiled.just a
suggestion. If you spend every thing you make,your going backwards.
