Margins getting tighter. Look at syy and us foods. Free money by the fed has consequences that few understand. Declining margins is one of them.
I have owned MPW in the past. It is a good company but it has to borrow to pay the divy and if it wants to grow it has to pay today prices. Not like HCP at all. HCP has a much lower risk profile IMHO. I don't think you really know HCP if you made a statement like that. Maybe you know MPW and can sleep at night knowing one day your divy is going to be cut but I can't.
What do u suggest for investing mr. Gloomy? Anyone can talk #$%$. Tell us how you are going to make ur fortune. Most of us here have already made ours.
The world only ends once so I will take the opposite side of your trade ... or whatever u want to call it.
Trade barriers helps inefficiency. It was also one of the reasons the world crashed in the 1930's. That and regulations and policy making from people like you who think you know better than the market as a whole. Just make sure u stick your fingers in the right hole.
Wow dude. I thought they should get some accolades for selling me what I want at a good price. A parasite sucks its life off of others ... kinda like what most of the Democratic Party does through the political/regulatory structure that now exists in our country. I am a Libertarian. That should keep your head from self-destructing.
The thumbs down is from the communist party members of the BRK board .... obviously. They should all just move to Venezuela so they can see their future.
Someone said that labor is one's life work stored in money. Money is devalued by cemtral bankers. Central bankers devalue on's life work. Couldn't say it better myself.
Without the card I feel like I am being raped on price. I think the salespeople work on commission because they want to sell you a bunch of #$%$ you don't need. The stores look dated. Finally, I get better prices from VSI. What is there to like except if I really really need something and I drive by one. I find it a struggle to get myself to go into their store. Sure I am not the only one who feels that way. Now I am learning I may not have even got what I thought I was buying.
Even better today off of 40. 36 is next support after 40 and 30 should be a very very strong support if 36 breaks. HCP would be netting about 7% at that level with current debt levels and no growth.
Utilities and Reits are down. Interest rates are up a little bit. Yellen is not Volker nor can she ever be. 18 trillion reasons why.
I will throw UPS and out there. Maybe GIS CPB or K to roll into HNZ. CAG would corner the frozen potato market and talk about a boring company. Brokers fall asleep telling clients about that one. Do kids still eat tater tots?
