    Solid.

    I'm getting a bit like chowder and Lowell Miller when it comes to investment grade credit. I think the longer the bull runs the more important it is for all of us to make this an important consideration.

  • Why Dividend Investors Could Withdraw More Than 4% Of Their Portfolio [View article]
    Eli

    Bold article on a subject not often discussed. Another subject not often discussed is that retirement spending is not always consistent nor in my opinion should it me.

    I am currently retired and expect to spend more during the next ten years than the ten years which will follow paying for things like sponsored family vacations and international travel. In that spirit I plan to do just what you suggest.

    My kids are all in their 30's with young families. They are spread apart geographically. Supporting their ability to get together is what retirement savings is all about.

    Thanks

    CAT could never likely be a core stock. I think there will come a time to buy with an eye in my case toward selling later and redeploying the gains.

    "So I am game for anything with 7+ years of dividend growth". How about making that anything with 7+ years of DG and investment grade credit?

    Thanks for bring this up. So many folks don't know you can do this. I never did. It was never mentioned as an option at any of the work sponsored investment seminars for either my wife or myself.

    Coverdells do offer better choice including individual stocks with one limitation. You can only add up to $2000 a year. One important thing about state run 529's. You don't need residence in the state to purchase. Some states are good, some states are ugly.

    Well stated. That research made a believer out of me as you say they will hold the line a lot longer than those that don't. MTD....Manage the downside...Love it!

    I used CAT more to illustrate a process for evaluating Contenders as future candidates for purchase. It's one of many stocks I might consider for purchase.

    I should have explained that when I said margin of safety, I was speaking about income from the dividend. Hard for me to consider an industrial that doesn't yield around 4% at purchase because of their cyclical nature. This is a subject each person needs to consider personally.

    You mention "too many options". What are a few we might consider?

    Take care

    If I limit myself to anything its Investment Grade Credit of at least BBB, prefer higher.

    George,

    i appreciate you stopping by. Whether it income for today or tomorrow I believe Contenders deserve to be a part of every income investors portfolio.

    Take care

    I've been spending more time on future explorations of late. Plan to have more coming up.

    I knew a focus on CAT might stir things up a bit.

    That's a great question! I guess I would have more confidence moving forward
    with a company with a strong history of buybacks and a low payout ratio.
