  • Rising Earnings - The Source Of Future Dividend Growth [View article]
    I am long dividend growth stocks, which will hopefully pay for my expenses by the end of the decade. If only I had used tax-deferred accounts, I would have been there faster.

  • Rising Earnings - The Source Of Future Dividend Growth [View article]
    I am shocked as well. In all fairness, when most dividend growth investors talk about a 5% growth in dividends however, they usually assume a corresponding 5% growth in earnings per share. The fact is they do not specifically spell it out, but that doesn't mean that they blindly chase dividend growth while ignoring EPS.

    Nope - "absolute" growth in revenues and net income that doesn't translate into rising EPS doesn't do you any good.

  • Retirement Strategy: The Oil Crash Could Be A Dividend Growth Investor's Best Friend Of The Decade [View article]
    Thank you for the article. I believe that the crash you are referencing happened in the 1980s ( 1986 to be exact).

    I believe that Exxon Mobil is the one with the safest dividend out there, when you look at forward earnings. Based on expected earnings for the next 2 years, COP and CVX can hardly cover their dividends.

  • Kinder Morgan Is Getting Hit By The Bears Again [View article]
    It's funny how often the person telling me to listen to their point of view, actually ends up ignoring what I am saying.

    That is hypocritical.

    You don't make money by "discussion".

    You make it by sticking to your strategy.

    If you want to check with everyone before you buy, that's your money on the line. Not everyone's opinion is worth listening to. In fact, listening to everyone will make you more likely to succumb to paralysis than anything else.

    No , it means focusing on facts. No sensationalist agenda that is trying to induce fear

    I agree. Kinder Morgan is the type of company to buy, hold and monitor. Long-term investors should know to read critically news and "opinions".

  • Why We're Dumping Kinder Morgan Right Now [View article]
    I love the exclamation points. In reality, this researcher from Valuentum frequently changes their opinion on Kinder Morgan every 5 months or so. That is not how serious long-term investors should operate. I also do not believe that investors should get fearful, merely because someone has an opinion ( that is not substantiated much)

  • 3 Reasons Why Kinder Morgan's Stock Has Been Trading Weakly Lately [View article]
    Dividend investors should not become victims of fear in their dividend investing. This was the case over an year ago, when Barrons and the other short sellers started writing "negative" articles on Kinder Morgan.

    Hi Tim,

    I noticed you are no longer long IBM. Why did you sell your stock?

  • Why You Shouldn't Put Too Much Weight On Dividends [View article]
    One of the dumbest arguments against dividend growth investing is showing a single investment that failed, and thus implying that the strategy is not good. An opponent of dividend growth investing would usually use a company like Eastman Kodak, General Motors, or one of the major banks like Citigroup (C) as an example of type of stocks that investors believed to be buy and hold forever.

    http://bit.ly/1xEM00D

    The issue with this argument is that it ignores how General Motors, Eastman Kodak and the banks such as Citigroup were actually part of the S&P 500 or Dow Jones Industrial's Averages at the times of their dividend suspension or cuts.

    If these are examples that should prevent investors from following a certain strategy, it looks like since these companies failed, the argument should be that investors should not buy stocks or should not buy index funds altogether.

  • Williams Goes The Kinder Morgan Route, Higher Dividends Ahead [View article]
    Smurf,

    It is a great book. The response to a Harvard interviewer question that a certain former Enron executive provided on how smart he is, is one reason why I am overly skeptical when someone parades how smart they are/how successful they are/etc and are not humble.

    Any other good recommendations?
