    Gary, that's a good point about the currency. FAST Graphs might use CDN because the company originally pays in CDN. Not sure how the annual dividend is calculated. Maybe there's a discrepancy between your number and FAST Graph's number because you guys are using rolling periods starting from different months?

    alexco, thanks for commenting. Too bad I started my KMI position before the market pullback. Oh well, it was still a good yield.

  • Cashing In Some Gains From Ross Stores To Diversify My Income Stream [View article]
    Above, I commented "hoping to get shares in the $67 to $70 range".

    Not a bad entry point to buy some Ross shares at $66 now. Disclosure: added a small position at $68.

  • I Purchased This Wide-Moat Dividend Stock Last Month [View article]
    Nice article. Also added some KO shares near 3% yield (will be over 3% with the dividend raise that's coming soon).

    Cranky, I'm watching THI. It just keeps on going up! It'd be nice to grab some BNS shares at the 4% yield on this pullback, but it is already my biggest holding. (I trimmed a bit on it when it was up 10% also, and that was a mistake because it later ran up to 20% unrealized gain, and now back down to 13%.) So, I'm just leaving it alone and letting it DRIP now. Thanks for dropping by!

  • The Only Reason For Automatic Dividend Reinvestment [View article]
    40YearOldFather, you can, but the compounding process is slower. If you're reinvesting the dividends (and you get a dividend every quarter), you're compounding quarterly. If you accumulate the dividends and wait for next year's contribution to add to the lump sum, your compounding happens annually.

    elvis, thanks for your perspective. I see ENB as having to invest in building the pipes first, and then getting the cash flowing in from the transportation of oil/gas.

    RCI could benefit from the NHL deal, but it also has the highest debt/cap out of the 3.

    Timmies, I'm thinking of partnering up ENB with KMI. As usual, thanks for your suggestions. I'm always on the look out for opportunities. In fact, there are always too many to choose from, it's hard to choose the "right " one.

  • Snowball Down A Hill: My Dividend Growth Portfolio 2013-2014 Report [View article]
    Dave,

    I enjoyed reading this clear and concise article. I especially like your table of dividends received with the goal bolded at the bottom, and the line graph comparing actual dividends received and the goal's path, indicating you're 1.5 years ahead of schedule!

    Thank you for sharing a real life example. It's working beautifully!

    juano,

    Sorry, your comment is not meant for me, but here is what I've read. We have a similar tax-deferred account here in Canada, and we also have the equivalent of the Minimum Required Distributions for when one reaches 70.5 years old. I've read about that you could transfer shares out of the account and into a taxable account. So, you don't have to sell the shares. But of course, when you transfer the shares out, you have to pay the tax. Dividend income from those shares in the taxable account also requires paying tax on. I suspect in the US, you can do something similar.

    Hope this helps,
    Canadian
