Going to Look at Dogs Today - will you share your favorite stories?

June 04, 2009 – Comments (11)

No, not 'dogs of the Dow' or some other stock analogy.  Really going to look at dogs. I have my own favorite stories of growing up with a dog.  I would love it if you would share any of your own.  Did you have one when you were a kid?  No leash laws back then so it would meet you after school?  What does your dog do now that you love?  [more]

Debt + Dilution = Delicious, why SWHC looks better than ever right now

May 07, 2009 – Comments (8) | RELATED TICKERS: AOBC , RGR , HNSN

You want to get a bunch of Fools to vigorously nod their heads, and get a rise out of the crowd like a small town revival, shout into a crowded room, "Dilution is bad for shareholders!"  -- "Right on!" they will shout!  --- "Debt is terrible!  All the time!"--- "You tell it!" they will encourage.  "We should never buy a debt laden company diluting shareholder value!" --- "Preach it!" they will scream.  And then you can run from the room as they storm the stage.  And many times these doctrinaire beliefs are totally right. It's hard to go wrong limiting your investments to companies with solid balance sheets, with no debt, and who don't go around regularly diluting shareholder value by issuing new shares.  But I think that SWHC's announcement today, of a 5.5Million share offering is actually great news.   [more]



State budget woes - is there any sunshine from this? any long ideas?

March 02, 2009 – Comments (7) | RELATED TICKERS: MO , RAI , COCOQ.DL

We all know now that individual states are really suffering.  The latest headline from AP: State's budget woes will outlast the recession  In the short-term, the massive stimulus will help balance budgets and keep key services, such as Medicaid, going. But economists agree the money will not quickly eradicate high unemployment, low consumer spending or distress in the housing market -- the triple threats behind a nationwide tax-collection shortfall that is expected to drag on even after the economy begins to rebound.  story link here  [more]
