  • Recent Sell: Target Corporation [View article]
    Hi, James.

    I actually bought TGT around in 10/2013. And as per my records, the yield was no where near 3.3%. It was actually more around 2.7% at the time. I bought it because the yield at the time was about 15% higher than the historical (last 5 years) yield, which is typically when I start looking for my long term holdings.

    I did buy some more later, and my YOC on TGT is closer to 3.5%. I'm holding on because I think this management is doing something about the problems. I also have looked at the people in my demographics (20's to early 40's, with jobs), and just about everyone shops at TGT, not WMT (other than for cheap ammo -- I'm in Texas).

  • I Hope The Exit Doors Are Wide Enough [View article]
    I've been waiting for interest rates to go up for years now. But as someone have mentioned, the government cannot exactly afford higher interest rates. So yeah, I'm holding on to NLY, but not reinvesting the divs. I believe we are in a zirp forever era, and once everybody realizes that, these high yielders' stock prices will go up due to yield chasers.

  • Should You Copy The 'Ron Paul Portfolio'? [View article]
    I agree one should not cherry pick. But what is wrong with being right only in the last 15 years of out 30? What's different between that and a dividend/value investor who sees a great company, kept buying shares while it is greatly undervalued, and is finally reaping the GREAT rewards years later? Isn't that a value/dividend investor's dream to be able to accumulate a lot of shares of an undervalued equity? In my dividend investments, which I do not plant to "tap" decades from now, I actually hate it when it keeps going up in value. I like it when my reinvested dividends are able to buy more shares, not less.

    As long as the investor has some other form of income that he or she does not have to rely on the investment, and the investment is for really long term, I do not see RP's portfolio as being a bad investment. Remember that his portfolio has one thing that other portfolios that do not account for currency devaluation/crash - it's insurance for that event. If it helped RP sleep at night, that is worth something in itself.

    Like yourself, I do agree with a lot of RP's belief's. But like yourself, I feel I have to be more diversified than his portfolio. We all have to find the investment strategy where our money grows, while also conforming to our own appetite for risks.

    Nice analysis!

    Is there a Norwegian withholding tax on the dividends? If so, how much?
