  • The New Nifty Fifty, Part 2: Dividend Growth Investing's Greatest Hits [View article]
    Smarty & PTI:

    I won't hazard a guess as to performance vs. SPY, but then again, that wouldn't matter all that much to me anyway.

    Thanks for reading.

    v:

    I generally agree with you. But when you systematically build a position over time the way Crosetti has built KO, and when you also have significant other holdings to become a multimillionaire ... well, let's just say that Dave probably isn't too worried he has too much KO.

    Thanks, Doug.

    During the little pullback, I tried to top off GIS super cheap and failed. The limit order is still out there but might never be filled!

    Thanks, Ron. I knew Siskel a little as he was a huge sports fan (especially the Jordan-era Bulls), but I never met Ebert.

    maybe:

    Yes, I like that "oh," the next "ohhh," and mostly the falsetto at the end of "and when I ask you to be mi-i-i-iiiine!"

    Dopey story: When I was a teenager, I was in love with this one girl and I actually made a tape of me singing "I Should Have Known Better" and sent it to her. How is it possible that we were never a couple?

    Decades later, I did a live-band karaoke version while on a cruise. Got a loud ovation, but I think it was mostly for having the courage to do it, because my voice ain't what it used to be. (And I was never exactly Lennon.)

    I know their catalog is so deep that doing a best-of collection must be brutally difficult, but how can you leave out "I Should Have Known Better"?!?!?!?

    robert:

    VGR is a little too "peppy" for me and I don't follow it at all, so hopefully Miz or somebody else with knowledge will chime in and respond.

    Nathan:

    Some real food for thought there.

    As a basically lazy (and cheap) guy, maybe real estate isn't for me after all!

    jnp:

    I agree.

    They can sell, drive down the price some, and I'll be happy to take some of those shares off their hands at, say, under $33 for T and under $46.50 for VZ!

    Then I'll hold for, oh, two or three decades, dripping along the way, and live happily ever after!

  • My Dividend Stocks Aren't For Sale [View article]
    Hi Eli.

    Great thesis, well presented.

    I bought WAG the same time you did and repeatedly came to the same conclusions you did over the last couple of years. Although I did sell some along the way to fund purchases in some higher-yielding companies I liked as much, I'm still long WAG, which I consider a solid satellite position in my portfolio.

    I have no interest in selling any of the rest of it, either, and I can say the same of at least two dozen other positions.

    D.H.:

    First, thanks for the mention. I am honored to be in the company of so many smart people.

    Second, I enjoyed the article a lot and I really do get the comparison between DGI and single-family rentals. I actually have considered getting into the latter myself but, frankly, I'm a little chicken. Maybe down the road, you and I can have a conversation about it!

    I have signed on to be a follower and am looking forward to reading about your journey. I wish you nothing but good fortune.

    Thanks for the mention. Part 2 of my article has been submitted and I would imagine it being published at some point tomorrow.
