    This Reit has had a plunge but still pays 13% dividend. I have a twenty year time line (saving for my nursing home at age 90). Should I continue to hold this stock since my loss is only on paper at the moment. What about Reit’s currently as an investment? Are there others you would recommend?

  6. CD Sebastian says:

    Is Cisco a good long term stock? I’m up 33% from when I purchased it so I’m not sure if I should Sell or Hold. If I sell, I’d like to replace my investment with either Abbot Lab or AbbVie. Is this a prudent move?

    I owned bonds in General Motors before its bankrupcy. When GM went bankrupt, I received warrants (GMWSA, GMWSB) and shares in MTLQU (I think this is income from the liquidation of the original GM). I don’t know how to use either of these. Can you help? My broker says I can use them (the warrants) to buy more GM stock. What I don’t understand is: Do I use these warrants in exchange for the GM stock or must I add to the current value of the warrant to buy at the current price of the GM stock? Also, can these warrants just be sold on the stock market?

    What is your take on Sherwin Williams

    It has had a solid run. I was following this stock because at one time it was the largest holding of SAC but that seems to have disappeared with little impacty on price.

  31. Joel in Dallas says:

    NBR has diligently tracked Alcoa’s troubles and prospects for many quarters. The stock’s looked for a long time to be a strong value play depressed by an anemic cyclical recovery. In addition, there’s currently a lot of talk about banks hoarding aluminum and other commodities and the effects of that hoarding on markets and consumer prices. Where do you see Alcoa stock a year or two down the road?

    what do you think of stocks like TOT, PBA and BP ? Is it a good idea to hold the 3 stocks….Total SA ( has a 4% dividend which is attractive), PBA (has 5% dividend) and BP ( has 5% dividend ) as well ……so for a long term investor is there anything else which takes care of the opportunity cost ?

  37. Janice Champion says:

    My investment club almost sold EMC two months ago when it made a new bottom…but we held on and it has risen nicely, with the 50-day MA now well above the 200-day MA. It looks like EMC is nearing it’s ceiling. Also, a recent news story says that Tintri is taking market share from EMC. What is your opinion on EMC? Time to sell?

  38. Prakash Mhambrey of Muskego, WI says:
