Throughout the trading week on Stockpickr Answers, investing professionals answer questions posed by members of the Stockpickr community.

Recently, David Peltier ( TheStreet.com Dividend Stock Advisor) responded to a round of timely questions.

Here are a few of those questions and Peltier's answers.

  • I'm looking at building a major position in Caterpillar (CAT) and in ConocoPhillips (COP) in my long term holdings. Should I go with Deere (DE) instead of CAT?
  • Or should I just build a bigger position in COP instead?

    Peltier: Agree 100% about the CAT dividend being in jeopardy regarding an earlier response to this question . I think the industrials are the biggest value trap in the market. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.

  • Being that Citi's (C) stock is down to a dollar, is it a good buy right now or do we foresee a total collapse coming?
  • Peltier: It's worse than that a lottery ticket . In my opinion, it's a discarded scratch-off, where you can already see that it's a loser. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.

  • Do you think Visa (V) will be well off with these new pre-paid debit cards?
  • Peltier: I do see the economy continuing to shift from cash to plastic, which is very good for V. To read more, visit Stockpickr.com.
