The interesting part of this article was: "New research shows that internet trolls are, in real life, narcissists, psychopaths, and sadists, and: trolls are awful people in real life, too". QED. His mother must be so proud.
The conclusion was: Don't feed the troll. Therefore he's on my ignore list and I don't react to anything he posts, nor do I wonder what he's up to. He's a total nonentity to me, and I'm just happy to have found a good investment.
Off topic: Anyone see the partial solar eclipse? In San Diego it was only 33% but with binoculars I could see the sunspots that are crossing the sun right now. Per NASA's APOD: One of the largest sunspot groups in recent years is now crossing the Sun .
The bottom of my message board page is piled high with rotten fallen fruit. This troll in his various incarnations must be getting carpal tunnel syndrome from posting junk that no one reads and giving thumbs downs to all legitimate posts. How pathetic!
Nobody on this board is really interested in talking about our company. It's just bashing the troll and/or posting silly stuff about owning pie in the sky or shorting the stock. How disappointing!
I'm surprised no one mentioned the article about Realty Investment in last Sunday's paper (Oct. 12) entitled: A Dividend Machine. Clients of RE have counted on its payouts to regularly outperform the market for 45 years.
The Q&A was very informative, including the investment strategy with respect to demographics (smaller foot print stores, movie theaters.) New area of interest: internet distribution centers. The CEO mentioned that during the recent recession, O was one of 10 REITs that did not cut dividends.
Company holdings: 1263 properties - 78% retail, 11% industrial, 7% office and 4% other.
Top industries in portfolio: 10.2% Convenience stores; 9.8 % dollar stores, 9.5% drug stores, 7% health & fitness, 5.2% movie theaters.
The company is leaving Escondido and moving to Carmel Valley.
C'mon, this guy doesn't need any encouragements. His posts will just fill up the bottom of my message page where all the ignored doofuses go to rest. Right now he's busy giving thumbs downs to any legit posters.
Didn't know Toyota still made Celicas in 2003. Owned two in the 70ies and 80ies and loved them, but then graduated to four-doors and automatics. Current car is a 1996 Acura Integra with 185K; the only flaw is that it's not a hatchback. But 14 years ago when I was in the market for a used Acura, oddly, there were no hatchbacks available,
Why would you bother to read his drivel? It's the same ole stuff: death spiral, sub-prime malls, and such. He's on my ignore list since he doesn't add anything of substance to this board so why waste my time? But I've noticed he keeps busy by putting "thumbs down" on everyone's posts. One has to feel sorry for this hateful fool.
I think this fellow is also one to put on the ignore list. Don't know what his beef with Paul Stutz is, but I wish he'd take it somewhere else. And isn't there a saying that when when neither law nor facts are on your side, then bring out the insults? Don't let him get to you.
You like to live on the edge, don't you? But I'm sure a small investment is a good risk since Uber is not really a competition to the taxi cab industry and NYC is unlikely to issue more licenses (unlike San Diego). So, enjoy the dividend and keep us posted..
It's really crystal ball gazing, IMO, but doesn't the stock market initially react negatively to the US getting involved more intensely in military activities (ISIL, Ukraine) ? The trade volume was almost double its usual average, so it's not the retail investors selling. I personally don't like the fact that, with Gary Molino leaving the company, the CEO has also assumed the title of President, but that's not a reason for sell-off. I think it's just the general uncertainty about the Fed and military involvements.
That sounds about right. People who panic at any downward fluctuation shouldn't be in the stock market. If you're holding and reinvesting dividends, just look at it as a pay increase. Every financial magazine recommends Realty Income as a good, conservative investment. Just wait it out and in the meantime enjoy the divvy.
Paul, one of my pearls of insights is that you'd benefit from a dictionary and just plain English lessons..
I wouldn't be concerned about this potential merger either, although O does own buildings, not just the land and an empty store could be a drag on income. However, the company has never had a problem with finding new tenants for an empty building. But how about the wineries in Napa Valley it acquired in 2010; any exposure to the earth quake?
Ditto. But he's persistent, isn't he? Wonder what his beef is; someone surmised that he's an ex-employee who was fired. If so, he probably sold all his stock early on and missed the train.
Thank you, David. That was very helpful. As as retail investor I don't fall into the mega category and have held that position for only 3 years so I probably don't need to sweat that. right now, but I'm looking forward to your reporting on that issue next year. Thanks again.
