    Yes, will be a great addition to an IRA given the high yield and compounding aspects.

  • Philip Morris: A Dividend Cut Is Possible [View article]
    As mentioned above, Altria the company from which PM spun off, went through terrible times over the past 50 years. People said tobacco would die, no advertisements, no profit margin, no growth blah blah blah. But guess what, Altria was the best performing stock over that period for investors who stuck with it.

    PM is going through some short term headwinds. For sure. But this cloud keeps its valuation low and helps long term investors reinvest at a lower price. When things get better, the returns will be exaggerated. Jeremy Siegel called this scenario "bear market protector and return enhancer". Agreed that the market is on a high but this stock is still one of the few that you can find at a reasonable price.

    Do I know what their next quarter will look like ? No.
    Do I know how next year will be ? No.
    What I am sure of is that this company comes with a rich heritage and culture. One that will reward its shareholders no matter what.

  • Philip Morris: A Dividend Cut Is Possible [View article]
    For a typical company, yes. For PM (remember the sufferings Altria went through over the last 50 years?), I say a big hell no.

    Interesting collection, RAS. You might want to add FCX to the list of "Dividend slashers."

  • Why AT&T's Total Income Growth Is Important [View article]
    I am assuming the $603 came from assuming a new dividend of $1.92/share based on T increasing it by 4 cents/yr the last few years. So 314.5 times $1.92 = $603.84.

  • Why AT&T's Total Income Growth Is Important [View article]
    With all due respects, what's wrong in trying to give a future projection ? Past is a guideline sure but does not mean the only way out for future as well. Plus, the "under-performance" is also talked about in the article that its not just about the price appreciation.

  • Retirement Strategy: The Reward Of More Income Is Worth The Risk With Starwood Property Trust [View article]
    Interesting one RS. REITs surely add some spice (read more $) to any income seeking portfolio. The hidden message is to not over do it. Your table shows the bulk $ is invested in safer ones like T, JNJ, Xom. Hcp stands out but its well respected.
