  1. ERF hmm.... u heard the news? might as well keep it now.

    What do you think of MCD at these levels? or JNJ?

    1. I did hear. I was hoping to get the rest of the year at $0.18 div befor the cut but with nat gas low and oil dropping they don't have a choice but to cut the div. It should be priced in at this point now for the most part so I don't expect too much more drop from the div though other problems can bring them down more as with anything in the markets these days.

      MCD. Sooooo close to buying. JNJ I'd like to wait for 4% yield.

  2. Yea, the dividend cut was disappointing but I was kind of expecting that to happen sooner or later. The energy markets have been taking a beating lately especially with all the uncertainty coming out of Europe and possible slowdowns in China... I own JNJ as well, its not a very exciting stock, which might be a good thing for an income investment. I my dividend from JNJ today actually, which is always a good thing!
