    goldenbear65,
    You bring up some good points. Investor psychology has a huge impact on the market as well as individual stocks. I have always found it difficult to predict investor psychology.
    Thanks for your response.
    Cheers

    It depends upon what one considers the best stocks. I consider the best stocks those who pay the owners besides having a good, growing business that is well managed.
    One may write covered calls on one's own portfolio just as well as depending on a fund manager to do it for you.
    If you are more comfortable with funds, that is the way to go.
    Cheers

    snoopy44,
    To start off, I often find it difficult to accept government numbers. As a sociologist that spent many years collecting data and attempting to analyze it, I understand the problems of gathering data.
    It may also be that many of the attempts to lower energy consumption may be paying off.
    Otherwise I don't have an answer either.
    Cheers

    nicholas davout,
    I also have a problem with FTR. On the other hand, I believe that CTL is probably on the right path.
    I have pretty much avoided oil & gas stocks lately because i believe the price of oil may be on a precipice where it hits a bear market.
    Thanks for your input. Hope you do well.
    Cheers

    Joe Fortner,
    Joe, if you are 70 now, you have a very good chance of reaching 90 or older unless you are in poor health. That means you could see many more changes than you expect.
    Cheers

    Maverick_Investor,
    You have taken on a good moniker. You are willing to take a great deal more risk than I am.

    GGjr,
    I was not predicting 10% rates. I was just pointing out that interest rates can move and if they do, they have consequences. Even just a 2% increase would have a huge impact on highly leveraged mortgage REITs.
    Cheers

    rosenose,
    OK... understand your position...
    I see PAYX & PPL as growing faster for the next 2 years. They have things in place to do better.

    Joe Fortner,
    To help you understand the dangers in owning the particular stocks that you own:
    When we had the meltdown in 2008, NRF stopped paying its preferred dividends as well as the dividends on its common. The price of the issue really tanked. If one would have held on for 4 years, one would have come out of the issue OK... However most people tend to panic and give up just when the company is about to turn around.
    If you are dependent on the dividends to live, you are in trouble when things like this happen, especially if you have a great deal of your money in these vehicles.
    One other consideration is interest rate risk. I lived through an era when interest rates on CD's actually reached 10%. If that were to happen, your preferred stocks would go south. Not only that, the REITs you are investing in would probably suffer huge losses with a huge interest rate increase. They are financing long term mortgages with short term debt. That is how they make their money. If the long term mortgages they are holding only pay 5 - 6% and they must pay 7% or more for the money, they are in huge trouble.
    You must understand the basis for the REITs you are investing in terms of how they make their money. As long as interest rates remain relatively steady and stay low, there is no danger. However if interest rates begin to rise things could awry for the companies you own.
    Hope this helps

    rosenose,
    I can understand your position on WM... On the other hand I don't see what your problem is with PAYX & PPL. But I guess that is what makes a market.
