Re: Why I DGI

My real world McD ownership in DRiP began in 1990, albeit not with anywhere near $30,000 basis. But I also bought HOG, F, MO, WHR and CPB. MO split into MO, PM and Kraft, Ford spun off AFS & Visteon, and McD yielded a little company called [more]

Re: Should I Sell???

IN hindsight, DDD was at about $80 at the time this topic was posted, it rose to as much as $136, before settling back to about $80 today. Stay on top of your holdings, have clear exit and entry, reentry strategies.

Re: organizing business cards?

I use a 3-ring binder with an alphabetized insert divider pack and then as many untabbed hard paper with reinforced holes as needed. "S" gets a lot more cards than "Z" & "Q".
