  • My Utility Fund Vs. Reaves Utility Income Fund: Which Offered The Better Return Last Year? [View article]
    Stonehamian,
    One of the reasons that I am running the competition another year is because of the factors you list above. UTG is much more attuned to interest rates than my fund of utilities. Both will respond to interest rate movement, but UTG will move much more than my fund... I think.

    Dividend Sleuth,
    You will have to keep a record of your picks. If I am still well and alive next year, I will review what the returns on my picks and you can compare yours to mine.
    Thanks for your comments and the alternate fund ... especially one where you put your money where your mouth is.

    My work comes to the same conclusion as you... at least for 1 year.

    Robertkarp,
    Thank you for reading and appreciating the work.
    If one is going to be an investor that wins, one must face what the numbers say.

    Louverture,
    You have done well since moving out of bond funds. Keep up the good work. I will have to look at GASFX and see what it is.

    Livingstone,
    I understand your points and agree that one can have a stock called away. This has happened to me with PPL. However I have been able to write puts to get the stock back. This going back and forth on PPL has nearly doubled my yield on the stock. However it is difficult to write how this is done.
    But for me, I enjoy the game whereas most investors would rather not spend the time and effort.

    Billinsd,
    You have invested in sound stocks that will pay you.
    I also appreciate that you take care of your dad... That is more important than the returns we get on stocks.

    Bale002,
    You appear to have a well thought out strategy for your investments.
    I think that interest rates are going to be relatively flat over the next 12 months, although I am not making a great big bet on that scenario... just a small one.

    Your point about leverage is correct. Using leverage get make things move profits and losses up and down more than without it.
    I am a fan of Interactive Brokers... Cost of trading and margin is lower than most other brokers.

    Livingstone,
    You are correct about the greater diversification of UTG as compared to my fund.
    As to the discount to NAV, UTG seems to consistently sell below NAV...
    As to TransAlta, I see that as a special situation that will turn around, I could be wrong, we will see as time moves forward.
    Your last point about letting the fund manager do the work is excellent if one is not into using options to increase yield.

    GD,
    Good points when taxes are considered if one has high income tax rate.

    GD,
    Best way to avoid taxes is in an IRA or 401k...
    I try to keep issues like UTG in an IRA.
