  • Low-Priced Stocks To Avoid: Round 6 [View article]
    I appreciate your effort, but you lack any solid reasons to avoid MILL. If anything the turnaround that is underway is a positive. If you took the time to do real research on a company and not picking a few random numbers you could give recos that have some meat behind them.

  • Top 2 Water Stocks And ETFs [View article]
    La - Thanks for the comment. The two stocks mentioned (PNR and FLS) are not intended to be income plays. They are chosen for capital appreciation and exposure to the industrial aspect of the water trend.

    77052 - For the average individual investor I will almost always lean towards the ETF, in this case PHO.

    Thanks for adding XYL to the mix. It is not as undervalued as PNR and FLS, but definitely one to watch.

  • 3 Stocks Offering High Income And Captial Appreciation [View article]
    Here is dividend info from last distribution (from OAK website):

    The distribution is treated as a partnership distribution for U.S. federal income tax purposes. Non-U.S. holders of Class A units are generally subject to U.S. federal withholding at a rate of 30% (subject to reduction by applicable treaty or other applicable exception) on their share of U.S. source distributions and certain other types of U.S. source income realized by OAK. With respect to interest income, however, no withholding is generally required if proper certification (on an IRS Form W-8) of a beneficial owner's foreign status has been filed with the withholding agent. Non-U.S. holders generally must provide the withholding agent with a properly completed IRS Form W-8 to obtain any reduction in withholding.
    The distribution consists of the following components:
    Portfolio Interest Income (U.S.) $0.370
    Qualified Dividend Income (U.S.) $0.680
    Distribution Per Unit $1.050

    5bandit5 - thanks for the comment. I have never believed in waiting to buy before a dividend, because the stock price will automatically adjust itself the on the ex-dividend date.

    TAS - Thanks for the comment and you make a great point. When to get out (sell) is difficult for any stock or ETF.

    Wm - Thanks for the comment. You make great points. I always have to put out the risks in every article. So you are right, that over the long-term a dividend reduction may not be the end of the world, but it will definitely affect the stock price in the short-term. Good luck.

  • Income Through 4 International ETFs [View article]
    Riskman - thanks for the comment. You are correct, but there is also a high probability of the same year-end this year, so overall the yield would be higher.

    Randal - good point. The country that logistically is in the best position is Panama.

    Thanks for the comments Brad and Allison.

    The default rate on the below investment grade paper is near decade lows and willing to take the little extra risk for the upside potential. And as long as an investor realizes that it is a viable investment choice.

    STIP is like comparing apples to oranges. The ETF has not paid a dividend for a few months and could do well during inflationary times as far as preserving capital, but in the meantime it is opportunity cost to investors.

    FLOT is similar to STIP. Ultra conservative and more of a money market alternative than anything.

    TAS - Yes TDIV is an interesting play, but I do own Apple and believe it can continue its ride, so I do not mind exposure to the company.
