Hurry! Buy Treasuries!



August 18, 2011 – Comments (6)

A ten-year is yielding a ripe 2%.  Hurry and get it before the yield goes down to 1%!

Don't buy stocks!  Especially not stocks with solid earnings and dividends well in excess of 2%. 

Walmart?  No one shops there any more!  That dividend cut is almost guaranteed.

HP?  They are making $5 per share these days, but that won't last.  Their earnings will soon drop to less than 40 cents, in which case the earnings yield will be less than a Treasury.

Exxon Mobile?  I predict oil will go to $10 per barrel and Exxon will cut its dividend and file for bankruptcy to boot.

AT&T?  Are you kidding me?  No one has any use for wireless phone service any more.  They won't be generating any more cash.  Stick with a nice safe 2% from Uncle Sam.

Why by these stocks when you can buy Treasuries yielding 2%?

Are we feeling a little bit frustrated T-burglar? (:

Just step outside and scream. It feels good.

I am looking for and still buying "bargins" in the equity "dustbin".

Just have to shut out the "noise" and take "baby steps".

I went into 20% cash yesterday after the previous run ups, but not yet looking to put it all back in.

Good luck and have a good day.

Lol, well i bought more of all my favorite dividend players today...

Arcelor Mittal (MT) is lower than it was during the 2008 crash.

Intel at a p/e of 8-9!

and Corning, who is about to blow the lid off so many industries its not even funny.

Good luck making that 30% in gold. I still got all that gold I bought at $450/ounce stored away.

I'm gonna make money on everything!

Our industry is slow growth at best or maybe some deline, but we are spending more in technology in 2011 and 2012.

JBay - it's called "sarcasm". (gold is the joke)

I just wish I had more cash to add to my GE and INTC positions.  I'm about to refinance at the lowest mortgage rate in decades, so then I should have some cash to buy T-bills with!
