Re: Dividend growth stocks?

Wow, thanks everyone for the great info!

Alyce, how could I have forgotten about WM--I own it already! I think that would make a very nice retirement port stock.

WD, thanks for opening my eyes to other possibilities. I will [more]

Dividend growth stocks?

In her article on the Cummins buy, Alyce points out that dividends can be hard to find among "some of the jazzier, story stock names in the green investing field".

As someone probably 5 to 7 years away from retirement, I am [more]

Re: Michael Kors (KORS)

I thought it was interesting to read what the AD at Notre Dame said about Under Armour: "We love the company we are partnering with (UA), and we can't wait to grow with them," Swarbrick said. "We don't believe we're partnering with [more]

Re: CMG loses say on pay vote: holy cow!

Carpian, was there something that bugged you about Clean Harbors particularly? Just curious...

Alyce, you do a lot more in depth research and are dialed in to more issues than I am. For the most part, I just have certain "hot [more]

Re: CMG loses say on pay vote: holy cow!

Regardless, I do want to give people good advice or at least things to think about that may help their investing -- regardless of anything else.

You've certainly done that, time and again--always willing to take on and dig into tough [more]

Re: CMG loses say on pay vote: holy cow!

it isn't actually my money, it's the Fool's cash, but I manage the port.

OK, but I'm going out on a limb and presuming that you also invest your own money in a similar manner, incorporating the same values. Unless you really are [more]

Re: CMG loses say on pay vote: holy cow!

I've concluded "prosocial" means nothing more than Alyce approves

I'll take a teeny bit of bait. It is, after all, her port and her money. Who else should she have "approve"? We all get to make our own decisions [more]

Re: Natural Grocers (NGVC) Insider Purchases

My sense is that their stores are much more "hippie-esque" in presentation and layout

That's interesting...my sense has been that their stores are pretty plain, but I've never been in one and I'm not sure where I got that [more]

Re: Cos Copping Out on Climate Change

Apparently you can get stranded, which would not be cool. They said that here at the dealership too (the "you can get stranded" part, also it can do some weird thing apparently where it locks up and you can't turn it off or get your key [more]

Re: Cos Copping Out on Climate Change

Nice article, Alyce, and thanks for bringing up the Ceres report. Of course, as they say, "No good deed goes unpunished".

Re: Tide going out for healthy food stores?

but maybe the rate of growth for the entire healthy food market is slowing.

Maybe, but I think the sector still has a lot of growth ahead of it. Certainly the stocks seem to be losing a lot of their premium valuation. It will be [more]

Re: Here's why it crashed.

Technically I would expect a bounce but I expect this will play out in two parts. Maybe a dead cat bounce in the coming week and then filling the gap over two or three quarters. What do you think?

Thanks for the good description of [more]

Re: Here's why it crashed.

NGVC is giving TA signals that I like to use for long-term buys of "good companies", but I can't bring myself to pull the trigger yet. I don't feel I have enough information to determine if they really are a "good company" vs. a [more]
