I'm new to this forum. Is there a good place here or on the net where a person can get stock analysis without the hype?


 
I like PFE, XOM, SGP, TGT, TRN, FDX, CSCO, INTC, KO.
 
PFE is paying a great divy. now and has a lot of cash in the bank.
 
Thoughts at all?
 
Thanks

As Registered Reps, we are not authorized to provide recommendations over the internet. You might often here us bantering back and forth about some stocks, but it should not be construed as advice. Your best bet is to use some of the various research tools on the internet (MSN, Yahoo, Bloomberg, Morningstar, etc.) as well as a good advisor for recommendations.

Did you look at the companies? You should stick to mutual funds. These are some of the best companies in the world thank you. These are not penny stocks, so just start your childish countdown.

It's amazing how tough people like you act when you sit at your computer and call people names. You are not worth my time.

Stocks are no different than any other investment. Mutual Funds have track records as do companys. Infact, there are plenty of Mutual Funds that do have the track record of a Pfizer or and Exxon. Stocks have a bad name because of penny stock speculation in the late '90s.


 
I'm not sure what you use for your investments, but if you use any investment you have to have some sort of method to determine what to use. Stocks are no different.

"Stocks have a bad name..."
 
Do you realize we all work with the stock market?  Stocks don't have a bad name.  Many people own stocks in one way or another.
 
What Ice is asking you is how do you go about evaluating your stocks.  He, along with many of us on here, believe you don't have any idea what you are talking about.
 
How many hours a day do you spend watching CNBC?

I can see there are too many smart people in this place for an average investor. I should sell all of my xom that I have owned for 24 years. And no, I don't work for them. I'm sure you are a very successful investors. I'll remove my dumb asz self so you smart people can continue without having to deal with idiots.



Work on your grammar too.

I'm guessing about 20 minutes, as that is all you really need to figure out this investing stuff.

Thank you.  Walking across the freeway would be a good way to do that.

And you're the one turning to an internet forum about your stocks...why don't you get a life.
 
By the way, I thought you said you were leaving.  What's the delay?

You complained about the grammatical skill shown by others, so I would expect nothing less than a mastery of grammar on your part.  Double spacing, term paper or message board, is proper.  I'm sure you are a very successful investors.  You need to eliminate either the "a" or the "s", otherwise your sentence structure is incorrect.  I can see you know how to spell "it", however the correct spelling of "asz" is ass.  Also, you should make that one word.  Dumb ass means your backside is stupid.  Dumbass means you are stupid.  So unless you were stating that you were going to remove your unintelligent posterior while leaving the rest of yourself, you should have used dumbass.

Okay dude, you win. Now try breathing. I don't want to be responsible for your death on the Internet.

You may want to restate your comment to "You ARE worth my time."

Just trying to be helpful...

I don't think I would pick a fund with the same 10-yr. track record as Pfizer.  Check their 10-year track record.  -4.3% average annual return (WITH divs reinvested).  Better go back to that chart.
