Re: Keeping Your Car Safe From Electronic Thieve

@SkepikI, "Back in the day," I took a Powder Puff Mechanics course (a night course for women) through the local vo-tech school. I learned how to change a tire, check tire air pressure and add air to the tire, replace the spark plugs, add [more]

Re: Friday update: Big jobs #s, Tons of buybacks

I really wish companies would pay more in dividends instead of buying back stock! The stock market is "high" now, so most of these companies are paying premium prices for their own stock. Then when the prices drop, they stop buying the [more]

Re: Why corruption can be such a big deal

Being a politician was never supposed to be a life-long career to make you rich! The original purpose (and current purpose) of politicians was to be the voice of those they represented!

Combining power and money gives politicians just too [more]

Re: GOOG Paid a Dividend Yesterday!

Karen, just keep building on that little percentage! ;) My online account does allow me to sell whole shares or my entire "holding" - including the partial shares.

GOOG Paid a Dividend Yesterday!

GOOG paid a dividend of .0027455/ SH. It was not a cash dividend but shares. (Or in my case, a small, small percentage of a share!)

A nice "surprise" for Cinco de Mayo! So is GOOG a contender for our portfolios??? :)

Re: Exxon Earnings: 3 lessons YOU need to know

SkepikI, you may have missed the "bottom," but XOM is still priced fairly low at a P/E of 11.69 ($89.11 at the end of May 4, 2015). Most prices in 2014 were above $100/share! "Place your bets" - will demand for oil be strong [more]

Re: Update for Thursday

Hi, Adam!

I actually think the jobless rate will go up as jobs become available. A lot of people "dropped out" of the job market. The unemployment numbers don't include anyone who isn't "actively" looking for work. I'm [more]

Re: 1 year anniversary today: Thanks to you all:)

Congratulations, Adam! So you've averaged an article a day - while adding this huge Grand Adventure to your successes - and more views than the number of people who live in my small town (by a factor of 30! :) )!

Re: Further Screening for the remaining stocks

Wow! What happened to our list! I don't recognize A LOT of these companies, and companies that I consider safe, long-term "standards" (VZ, MO, AAPL, T, KMB) are missing. Also, a lot of the energy companies that have been great buys lately [more]

Re: Further Screening for the remaining stocks

I agree! I'd like to see fewer companies on the list. Even 132 is a lot of companies to choose from. Finding the best of the best of the best would be wonderful!

Re: ILOD Tues: STOP PANICKING ABOUT INTEREST RATES!

The Fed will definitely increase interest rates very slowly and very cautiously. I think just .25% this year - no more. Then they will see how the economy responds before increasing rates another .25% next year - if at all. If the increase in [more]

Re: The Power of TGA Community

Wow! How disheartening that so few companies have three years of increasing revenues and three years of increasing net income - especially since we have had six years of great stock market performance!
