  • Siren Song: Don't Be Lured To Linn Energy For Its Yield [View article]
    I just added a new benefit to my premium research Service on Seeking Alpha. It is my "Siren Song Dividend List" Which is a list of dividend stocks to avoid and not be lured to. *HINT* LINE & LNCO are on the list.

    Thank you for your interesting insight. If Paypal left everything the same with square I think customers would stay.

  • A Small-Cap ETF With Big Dividend Growth Potential [View article]
    If you want a better Small-Cap dividend-growth ETF, the largest small-cap dividend ETF is (DES), and another small-cap ETF (DGRS) that focuses on dividend-growth as well is better than SMDV.

    DGRS & DES have:

    -More assets
    -Lower Spreads
    -Cheaper expense ratios
    -Higher Dividend yields

    You picked the worst of the small-Cap dividend ETFs.

  • Retirement Strategy: There Are Dividend Aristocrats That May Be Bad For Your Health [View article]
    I don't interpret it as a dividend cut, I interpret it as they are going to allocate significant capital to new healthy menu items, and other healthy/growth initiatives, which in turn which leave less cash available for dividend-growth.

    Yes you are correct, I modeled for slowing earnings growth. The dividend-growth rate has significantly exceeds earnings growth and thus the payout ratio will continue to rise if the current rate of dividend-growth is maintained. The only way to avoid a significantly rising payout ratio is either slower dividend-growth or higher earnings growth. The prospects for higher earnings growth are challenging.

    Agreed, MCD has been a star dividend-growth company in the past but going forward they can not maintain the current dividend growth rate. In my article for my premium service I noted that by 2019, if MCD keeps up its current dividend growth rate, its payout ratio would exceed 100%. Therefore, MCD dividend-growth will be likely slowing over the next 5 years.

    Long-Story short, MCD can't continue increasing its dividend at its current pace.

    Great article, In a article I wrote in May I covered whether I believe MCD can maintain its dividend.

    @unbridled, Thank you for the comment. For a premium service I would have to be more active and have more picks rather than 2x a year to add value for subscribers.

    If you are interested I have a subscription service focused on Dividend-Growth stocks of all sizes. Here is the link below:

    Thank you for the comment. I am not exactly sure if someone would buy them. If LINE were to go bankrupt, I believe Quantum partners has the potential to buy assets from LINE, but that is just my opinion. As fare as someone else buying them the deal is not appealing because of the massive debt they have. Even for the large oil companies, it is a stretch that they would want to take on $10 billion more in debt.

    Don't be lured to LINE for its yield, because LINE has a extremely high debt/market cap ratio, LINE bonds are trading at their lows, institutions sold alot of shares of LINE in the 1st quarter and the technical outlook for LINE is poor.

    My article published last week goes through all these issues.

    Some data:

    -Highest Debt/Market Cap
    -Bonds are trading at their lows
    -Institutions have sold a large amount of shares
    -Dividend has been cut before and could be cut again
    -Technical Outlook is poor.

    For the bearish perspective:

    Did you report your evidence and proof of "Brokers allowed short sales of imaginary shares" to the SEC?
