    mike:

    I run a sports blog. The only investment writing I do is right here on Seeking Alpha. Some folks refer to what all of us here do as "blogs."

    No need to apologize. I said my piece, and you were classy to respond.

    Chowdah:

    <<Since AAPL has replaced T in the Dow 30, AAPL has lost 0.2% and T has gained 5.3%. So much for the concept of being added to an index and thinking it's going to go up as index funds purchase more shares of one and sell the other.>>

    As a guy who holds a decent amount of T but no AAPL, I will admit that I was a tad worried when AAPL replaced T in the Dow. So yeah, this goes in the Pleasant Surprise Dept.!

    Baxter is some kind of mix. He's a big, lovable galoot!

    My thoughts about South32 is that I'm thinking about dumping it and using the cash to buy something I really want!

    Richjoy is happy about that. MDT was his choice for the No. 1 stock in the world! (http://seekingalpha.co...)

  • 8% Raise For The Dividend Growth 50 [View article]
    rhian & Aaron:

    Exactly what rhian says: I didn't pick this portfolio. Baxter was chosen by 6 of the 10 panelists.

    However ...

    I do also own a decent-sized BAX stake in my personal portfolio. I bought it at a fairly attractive price, so I'm well in the black, but I will admit to being uncomfortable with management's lack of transparency about the divvy and other things.

    Uber:

    I am happy I put the panel together, I am happy about the work the panel did, I am happy I funded this portfolio, I am happy to track it and write about it occasionally. I am even happy to include the total return statistics and let readers take whatever they want from that.

    So, say what you want, and congratulate yourself for saying it if you want to do that, too. I am not going to get into a pissing match with you, so this is my last exchange with you. Life's too short, and I'm too busy enjoying mine.

    Maybe I'll write one day about the exact pension decision I have to make and see what everybody has to say about it!

    ts:

    You are correct. However, do remember we are still talking about only a 6-month stretch during a 7-year bull market. No conclusions can be drawn by either "side" in this cage match!

    Dave:

    Indeed, it does.

    I have time to make a decision, and I have lots of math to do. And we all know math isn't my forte!

    WEC got down near 45 just the other day, so it certainly isn't a stretch to think it could get into the low-40s.

    Thanks for the nice words -- and the nice advice. I agree, and I do expect to own ED eventually for the exact reasons you state.

  • Do Buybacks Benefit Dividend Growth Investors? [View article]
    Dividends = good.

    Buybacks = evil!

    OK, that's not the case at all, but I will take the chance of a company paying me a high dividend with little or no buyback vs. the opposite case.

    Keep the good articles coming, Robert!

    <<does anyone really think a blend of companies like AT&T will outperform a blend of companies like Visa over the next 17 years?>>

    I like to blend companies like AT&T ALONG WITH companies like Visa.

    There's plenty of room in most any portfolio for both types of investments, and those in between such extremes, too.
