As much as I hate this company, MCD will no doubt become one of the largest market capped companies on the New York Stock Exchange.  I don't like their product but I will say what is what.  That what is that McDonald's is on its way to becoming bigger than anyone ever could imagine.  Below are the reasons why.  [more]

Not sure if you all have noticed or not.  I just did.  My glorious and once unstoppable online broker Tradeking has become just another great broker destroyed by corruption, misleading emails, and a new system that has made many loyal customers like myself looking where to go from here.  Tradeking used to be awesome.  It was $4.95/trade and very straight forward.  Customer service was awesome.  The interface was up-to-date and clear.  Then a little something happened that made the broker go down the drain.  What was that little something?  Well while they were doing the conversion process (which has now gone on for over 3 weeks and this doesn't include the numerous alerts in previous months about when it would happen), they decided that the DRIP program was going to be changed forever.  [more]
