    JustGiveMeTheDividends,
    Appears to be a reasonable move to increase one's yield.

    dedugan,
    Preferred dividends are taxed as interest in most cases. There are a few preferred stocks available that are taxed like dividends from common stocks. From the list in the article, IPL-D is the only preferred stock that is taxed at the same rate as common stocks.

    John Huss,
    I was careful to choose preferred that were rated for this article. Since I was making the suggestion to use preferred stocks instead of bonds, i chose to use preferred stocks that were rated by Moody.
    On the other hand, I have several non-rated preferred stocks from REITs in my portfolio as well.
    Thanks for your comment.

    Tas,
    I did not equate preferred stocks with bonds. I said that there was a trade off for the extra return with higher risk. I believe the trade off is advantageous at this time.

    Paulo,
    Always good to diversify... Don't keep all the eggs in one basket.
    I, personally, am not into leveraging my portfolios...
    Thanks for the comment.

    LarryMelman,
    Hard to answer that question. It does carry a lower rate of return than many others at 5.88%. Perhaps that is the reason...

    Kintahntee,
    Both DLR-H and DLR-E are presently trading at a premium to their $25.00 call. The E preferred can be called in 2016. The H preferred can be called in 2019. It seems that the H preferred offers the best opportunity for dividend returns since it carries a 73/8% dividend.
    You have a good question.
    I always prefer to purchase preferred stocks below the call price, hence I chose G... However the other 2 offer better returns, especially H.
    Cheers

  • Can You Profit From Cigarettes And Real Estate? [View article]
    Occamsrazor & Michael Thomas,
    You are correct about government and revenue. All governments are looking to increase revenue anyway they can. Hence gambling, drugs and cigarettes are all areas they are going to tax and let live.
    Cheers

  • Cliffs Natural Resources Preferred: A 10% Return [View article]
    Wpspiker,
    Really difficult to predict the future of both CLV and CLF at this point in time. I have unloaded all my shares at this point. However if we have a breakout of a war in the Mideast, the price iron ore could all of a sudden come back up again.
    With oversupply right now and the price of iron ore declining, the conversion of CLV would not work out to your profit. Sometime in the future, prices of iron ore will rebound, but I am pretty sure it will not be within the forced conversion period.
    Hope this helps.
    Regards
    Henry

  • Saved By The Dividends... My Busted Attempt At Timing The Market [View article]
    jasjfarrell,
    It is difficult for me to tell you what to do in your IRA since I don't know how old you are or what you have in other investments.
    Since I am in my 70's, I need to have income from my investments. Holding these dividend payers makes sense to me for my situation.
    Your strategy is OK as long as it meets your income goals and the preferred stocks you purchased are relatively safe.
    Sorry I can't be of more help

    darnoc111,
    I bought these higher risk companies because of the dividend and also because I was reasonably convinced that these mortgage REITs were relatively safe over the short term.
    Since I doubled up on many of them when the prices fell off the roof, I now have profits in most of them. But I also have good dividend returns as well. I am holding on for the time being since I am convinced that interest rates are going to remain low for the 6 - 9 months.
    Regards,
    Henry
