  • PPL Corporation: Why You Should Avoid Its 4.9% Yield [View article]
    Facts are correct.... Conclusions are open to question.
    Time to load a balance sheet with debt is when interest rates are low. One can add to profitability of a company when one leverages the balance sheet when interest rates are low. As interest rates go up, one reduces leverage to maintain profitability. Great way to grow a company.

  • A Proposal To Convert A $10,000 Bank CD To An 8% Dividend Portfolio [View article]
    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.

  • High Risk - High Reward: Maybe, Maybe Not [View article]
    This is a good suggestion. But be careful of the dangers there as well. Someone in my family had 20% of his investment in GE during the Jack Welch reign. When the account was turned over to me, I sold all but several hundred shares.
    The person was angry at my action until GE fell on it's face.
    Than the person thanked me for diversifying the portfolio. I saved the person thousands of dollars of their hard earned retirement money.

  • Dow Chemical Company Is Rewarding Its Stockholders [View article]
    Dow does have some interests in oil. However, the lower price of oil and natural gas helps the company more than it hurts. The oil and gas investments are much smaller than the gain the company gets from lower prices to produce the chemicals.

  • Conclusion To 1-Year Test: $10K CD Wins Vs. $10K Portfolio [View article]
    Good question! The conclusions would certainly have been different. I think that just one attempt would not prove that it is the best way to handle our low interest rate environment on a short term basis.
    It is probably more instructive that the experiment lost money.
    Thanks for the thoughtful question.

  • Medical Properties Trust - A 6.4% Dividend With A Built-In CPI Kicker... Steady Income For The Retiree [View article]
    Acute care facilities have special needs within the buildings to meet codes that are not part of other facilities. Buildings must also accommodate all the special equipment that goes along with acute care. It is quite different from building apartments or stores.

  • 5 Strong Companies With Dividends Over 5% [View article]
    The very same problems you mention make it very difficult for new competition to enter the field. The barriers to entry are very high. Those who succeed can usually do reasonably well.

  • My Utility Fund Vs. Reaves Utility Income Fund: Which Offered The Better Return Last Year? [View article]
    Thanks for your comments... both here and earlier. I am holding a bundle of various preferred stocks also. But the preferreds that I have are mostly from various REITs. It seems that we are forced to look in nooks and crannies to be able to find issues that offer a reasonable return in today's market.
