    I would prefer text to videos commenting upon a company's ups, downs or sideways prospects. At the least you could provide those who agree with me a printed text of the conversation in the video. Please consider what a cross section of subscribers--and non-member readers--would find most useful...

    Thanks for your attention and consideration...

    I have to definitely agree that the two stocks you recommend for beginners (PEP) (JNJ) are definitely on target. Any stock over $2.00 is OK for me.
