  • Dividend Growth Investing: An Introduction To Creating Wealth [View article]
    I really wonder about some of the comments I read in MY daily perusing of authors I like on MY SA feed.

    I scratch MY head and say to MYself "WTF did this person decide to share this comment?"

    I have no answer to MY question.

  • Seattle to boost wage floor to $15 per hour [View news story]
    @Siv - You're correct - your argument makes no sense. You seem to be trying to make an assertion that a higher MW leads to increased profits - if this were so, then raise the MW to absurd levels.

    At least you recognize that this IS some level at which raising the MW is counterproductive.

    Nice strawman with slavery, btw - so cute.

    Where is it written that MW has to keep up with inflation? Why should MW be the same across the US when the cost of living varies so greatly? Etc etc etc

    Get it?

    Gosh, if this is the case, then SF should immediately raise the MW to $25 an hour - heck - why stop there? Let's go to $100 an hour. No - make it a cool grand.....just think how profitable it'll be!

  • Beware Phantom Dividend Cuts [View article]
    My #1 wish for Christmas - a congress that does nothing for a while and resists the temptation to muck around with us yet again.

    Thank you, Mr. Fish for all your hard work and due diligence here

  • Why Selling A Few Shares Is Not The Same As Getting A Dividend [View article]
    Time horizons matter....I'm likely to still be receiving dividend checks from my stocks 20 years from now - with my portfolio getting larger. Were I selling shares along the way however, I'd have nothing left.

    Math is easy.

  • 'Buying Dividend Stocks For Income' Arguments Don't Make Sense [View article]
    Nothing much to add to the substantive criticisms of Messrs Van Knapp and Schwartz, so I'll just note a couple issues with high yielding - ie - junk bonds

    1 - reinvestment risk
    2 - economic downturns threaten ability to pay bond interest just as with divvies.

    Frankly, I'd rather buy yield on a div champ - and yes I DO buy yield points - (if you're not familiar with the div yield charts on Buy Upside, you're doing yourself a disservice). Why? B/c I have reinvestment flexibility - I can buy more shares OR I can take the income stream. Can't do that with junk bonds - unless I go the fund route and pay management fees.

    And believe it or not, many of us are actually aware of the risks involved. No need for the snarky attitude.

    "money in municpal bonds to fund their retirement with no princpal risk"

    This is a VERY dangerous statement right here - much less failing to comment on reinvestment risk and interest rate risk vis a vis prinicipal value.

  • You Are Responsible For Your Investing Decisions [View article]
    @Small....I'm sure there are times when DVK wonders why in the hell he invests so much time writing articles when people kvetch and moan and carp like some have done even in this thread.

    Then along comes a reply like yours.....

    I can just picture him smiling and saying "yeah - this is the return on the investment of my time"

    High quality note on many levels - kudos on your journey

  • Bushes And Birds: A Different Perspective On Stocks And Dividends [View article]
    Quality article, Mr. Crosetti

    Personally, I'm a DGI b/c of the wonders of compound interest. Have enough positions now that I get a dividend or two per week to DRIP - and I like "having" to constantly update my position spreadsheet...

    Some of the reasons to consider high-yield bonds as an investment. But then you'd have to address the risk factors involved - and it's pretty clear you wish to continue to gloss those over. Default risk, interest rate risk relative to face value, reinvestment of income and principle risk, lack of compounding ability, etc etc etc

    If you want to write an article about the glories of high yield bonds - feel free. To whine about dividend stocks and the inherent risks w/o even touching on bond risk is quite disingenuous.
