  • Boost Your Total Return For REITs - A Look At Chimera [View article]
    I do better than backtest. I use the strategy myself and the profits speak for themselves. I pay no taxes on my REIT dividends, which come in the form of capital gains.

  • Boost Your Total Return For REITs - A Look At Chimera [View article]
    You don't need to be a technician at all. Your risk is no different than owning the stock outright. Now, whether or not owning REITs is a good idea in general is a different topic altogether.

    If you sell the day before the ex-div date you do not receive the dividend. You can Google this yourself.

  • Weighting Your Dividend-Paying Stocks [View article]
    It doesn't necessarily rule them out. It would just lower their weight using my method. Also keep in mind that the way I set up the spreadsheet, users can change the weight given to Debt/Equity. So if they think it's not too important, they can weight this variable by, say, 10% instead of the 33% I used.

  • Analyzing Wal-Mart's Dividend [View article]
    Thanks for nice feedback. I don't generally give price points since I like to look at the long-run potential of the dividends. It's really about the total return projections for me, which is why I like to run the type of analysis shown here. I think Wal-Mart can still provide a wonderful stream of long-term income going forward from here.

    I do not control the data feed from various sources. I apologize for the misleading dividend yield data, but that is what many sources are reporting right now.

    Yes, I urge people to put in their own assumptions and take a look using the same calculator I used. There is a link to it in the article.

  • Comparing Valuations Of Dividend Stocks And Cyclical Stocks [View article]
    "Dividend champions are defined as stocks increasing their dividend for 25 years in a row. So going back 30 years in the study of these stocks is quite ridiculous!"

    Very well said and spot on.

  • What You Need In Order To Retire Before Age 60 [View article]
    Some Monte Carlo simulations, like in our software, allow for "fat tails". It's called a LaPlace distribution.

    Good idea. You can actually test your ideas using a free trial version of our software. You would have Monte Carlo access in the trial. Feel free to sign up at http://bit.ly/ylqKdW.
