  • Medical Properties Trust - A 6.4% Dividend With A Built-In CPI Kicker... Steady Income For The Retiree [View article]
    scotty10,
    It would be nice if the company would raise the dividend. I don't expect it to happen until next year.

  • 6-Month Review: Comparison Of $10,000.00 CD To A $10,000.00 Dividend Portfolio [View article]
    hetmeel2,
    You pose a very good question. I chose to sell because I also thought it possible for the dividend and the price of the stock to go south. I probably sold 6 months too early, but I decided it is better to be a little early than too late.
    Of course, I may be all wrong. It is hard to predict the interest rate case at the moment.
    Cheers

    Russ Dam,
    You have a good plan. Having retirement funds in an IRA saves one from taxation on the dividends and capital gains. It can grow faster than you think as you continue to add funds and invest them well.
    Thanks for your comments.
    Regards

    George Edwards,
    You are a much more patient man than I am. When I started investing, I had very little money and leveraged it by buying stocks that were beaten down or edgy. It has served me well. Now that I can buy quality stocks, I have a hard time changing the way that I invest. SA has been a huge help in that regard and I am still learning.
    Thanks for your interest and comments.
    Regards
    Henry

    Dc10,
    You are correct about the issue of the 1 year time frame. The question in real time is whether the CD or stock portfolio will win.
    It is my contention that in our current financial situation that the stock portfolio will win. The test will either bear out my contention or prove it wrong. If the market takes a huge swing down, I will be proven wrong.
    Thanks for your interest and comments.
    Cheers

    Hardog,
    Since you are concerned about inflation, what are you doing to protect your assets from eating away your nest egg?

    Russ Dam,
    You make a good case for reinvesting one's dividends.
    For someone like myself, I spend my dividends since I am retired.
    I respect your idea for young people attempting to build a nest egg for the future.
    Cheers

    David Stein,
    Thanks for your concern about the use of my time.

    Many people have been predicting a correction in the market for some time. It seems that many people are willing to hide their assets rather than put them at risk in the market because of that and sometimes for other reasons.
    Perhaps a real world proof will help them understand that exercising some risk can be very rewarding.
    Cheers

    crazty4tennis,
    I am surprised that you have fears about the price of the stocks. It is not the price that is important... it is the value of the assets and business when compared to the price of the stock.
    Some stocks that sell for $100 or better per share are overvalued. On the hand there are stocks that sell for $7.00 per share that undervalued. One needs to compare the price of the stock to earnings and cash flows to determine when to buy.
    Regards
    Henry

    George Edwards,
    You make a good point about the quality of the dividend stocks in the portfolio.
    Perhaps you will like the test better when I create a list of Dow stocks to test the same thesis.
    I happen to disagree with you about the stock price. When the price of the stock goes up, there is a point where we should sell and enjoy the gains. There is also the opposite, when the price of the stock goes down. When the price goes down we lose capital... that always hurts.
    Regards,
    Henry

    Colorado112,
    You and I agree. The current financial situation makes CDs a poor investment.
    Hope AT does well for you.
