Re: Coverage of Vanguard

I bought VNR in 2013 at $27.99. Definitely a much better buy today at $14.95 with a 9.6% dividend - paid monthly! I'm holding since the oil/gas industry has been beaten down. Oh, but how I wish I had gotten in at $14.95! ;)

Re: Sorry for the lack of updates

No problem, Adam! This project was just an experiment when we started. It grew faster and larger than we expected. Your most important work is writing articles for TMF - for that promotion! :)

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]
