    You are correct... if the return on the CD is less than inflation, one is losing value and buying power.

    I would not buy any more if I were you.
    I would not sell my stake either

    MathRulz,
    I like your list as well as my own.
    I presently own in some of the portfolios I run:
    ARCP
    GOOD
    NRF-B
    I will take a look at some of the CEFs you have on your list.

    C D,
    The company is taking appropriate steps to handle debt. It may affect the company's ability to keep up the dividend, but it has put it on a sound footing financially.

    You make some very valid points.
    While you may have taken care of your CDs a long time ago, there are many elderly folks who still are holding CDs and are actually losing buying power.
    While my advice may have a great deal of risk, the stocks have the ability to rise and fall. The question remains... which way will they go...

    Louverture,
    I like to have the ability to have capital gains as well.
    Besides, no company is totally secure.

    mschwarzman,
    you have already made the judgment that this portfolio is a loser.
    Suppose it is a winner?
    I have invested in these issues myself, it is not like I am churning someone's account to make money.

    Appreciate your concerns...
    I watch these investments daily... I am not passive.

    Berloe,
    Good job... perhaps you should write your own article on how this is done. It seems that it would be difficult to get 8% out of these choices.

    mschwarzman,
    you have several interesting proposals. However if you go after blue chip stocks, you have to buy under 100 shares to diversify your portfolio. Buying and selling for a $10,000 portfolio would be difficult & expensive.
    I have chosen stocks that I have investigated and am willing to keep up with.
    Thanks for you additional ideas.

    edexter,
    The chart does show the dividend per share of each company. I don't understand your problem.

    Uain53,
    I am not looking for the dividend to increase in this portfolio. I am expecting it to stay the same for a year to give me the return I am looking for.
    Glad to see that you have confidence in 1 of my choices.

    Your portfolio is split between oil stocks and mortgages. From my perspective, your portfolio is heavily dependent on short term interest rates and the price of oil. I believe it would be safer to spread the risk among other industries.

    bg6638-2,
    I surely hope you are wrong.
    In any case, I have put my money where my mouth is.
    I will be checking out how well these investments work out in the future.
    By the way, I don't know about you, but If I put my money in a checking account, I spend it.
    It flies away.
