    Chances Are Profiting from - Your High Dividend Paying Companies - Are Slim & Nun and the - "ODDS" - ARE CURRENTLY NOT in Your Favor? Few Investors are as Profitable As They Deserve to Be - # 41

    My logo for Over 50 Years is: "Investing Wisely."

    This Article is focused for: Senor & Retired Investors who are Conservative and are seeking - Steady Monthly Income with modest Growth to offset Inflation . . .

    Risk can be managed quite easily when you have the tools and experience. Sleeping Well at Night is a MUST and I DO!

    You should be aware the Dividend Paying Companies have Rotated, on Balance - - Out of Favor. That means, if you are a Follower: The majority of my large Universe of Dividend Paying Companies are: a) Un-Favorable as well as; b) Also-Rans.

    That means exactly what the title of this Article says . . .

    This Company (NYSE:EPB) fits the above description in the past but is currently "Out of Sync." That means it is going and will continue to go the "Wrong Way" for the foreseeable future. There are always fresh Companies that are Forecast to go the "Right Way." It is Your Choice!

    Press Control and Click with this URL highlighted to link to a Basic Chart and Basic Fundamentals for this Company:

    Investors and many / most Financial Analysts often get "Way Too Greedy" in their expectations about the direction of both the General Market and of specific Companies and ETFs they are touting. I also read those article that I believe I am well credentials to say - - " they are frequently offering very poor guidance and direction."

    It All Has to Do With Conservative Analytics and the "ODDS"

    For both - Myself and my Clients - - there are always just three answers: a) Patience and Discipline will be rewarded. Profitable opportunities are always available if you use my P & D. b) Yes, this is a fine Company but it is much too ripe - or - already Un-Favorable to Hold or Buy and likely is getting rotten, and c) Just remember a fresh crop is coming soon and it will be more rewarding to wait and Buy at that time.

    Current Opinion: Take Profits at the next peak or soon thereafter and Hold-Cash for the fresh crop. This Company is paying a 7.3+% dividend per year. In less than a couple mouths it's price has dropped by more than the dividend. That is definitely NOT - "Investing Wisely."

    Forecast: Likely Coming Down in the Short (one - three months) to Intermediate (three - nine months) -Term. Maybe more . . .
