  • Memorial Resource CEO Weinzierl resigns, stays CEO at Memorial Production  [View news story]
    I doubt that MEMP will be around going deep into 2017, however, the stream of articles on SA advising as to what a great bargain this is, surely will be continuing.

  • BCE declares C$0.6825 dividend  [View news story]
    The BCE annualized common share dividend will increase 5.0%, or 13 cents per share, from $2.60 to $2.73 effective with BCE's Q1 2016 dividend payable on April 15, 2016, to shareholders of record at the close of business on March 15, 2016. BCE maintains the dividend payout ratio(4) within its target policy range of 65% to 75% of free cash flow. The higher dividend for 2016 is fully supported by higher expected free cash flow generation driven by continued execution of Bell's 6 Strategic Imperatives and growing financial contributions from all Bell business segments.

  • Lowe's Offers An Interesting Opportunity To Double Your Dividend Aristocrat Yield  [View article]
    Today's major drop in LOW presented a great opportunity for this DGI to add to his holdings. This seems like such a major over-reaction to the news of LOW buying out a major chain of stores in Canada. I'll take the gift any day and bought not only once, but twice. This Dividend King is a member of an elite group of dividend payers with 50+ years of rising dividend payments to shareholders!

  • 3M raises its quarterly dividend by 8.3% to $1.11 dividend  [View news story]
    MMM is a powerhouse Dividend King, and I'm glad to have added in the $130's a few times over the past 1/2yr. Each time it's dipped, I've scooped up shares and watched it quickly launch back into the $140's. Staying very long MMM.

  • Spotlight On STAG Industrial  [View article]
    I'd have to concur on throwing in the towel on STAG. This is all beginning to smell a bit like ARCP and what a catastrophic mess that became for shareholders.

    It's quite difficult to see STAG bob along the bottom while O is hitting repeated fresh new 52wk highs.

    There's a flight to quality and STAG is but one of the airports seeing a lot of departures. VTR and O are much better destinations for my investment dollars.

  • Dividends: A Key Component Of Total Return  [View article]
    Due diligence: This is one of the biggest components of Total Return - as far as I am concerned. I've made plenty of mistakes in my investing "career" and most of them were because I was following the herd or buying/selling based upon what a single source said that day.


    Consult M* reports, consult S&P Capital IQ reports, view the news threads on Yahoo! Finance, consult FastGraphs, etc. These are but just a few of the actions routinely taken by this investor to put those EXPENSIVE LESSONS to rest for good.

    Good luck to you all! Happy Investing!

  • Did The Fed Organize An Opportunity In Ventas?  [View article]
    Correct, maybenot. These SA dividend increase alerts make it sound like the increase was just announced, but indeed, it wasn't. Additionally, they computed the amount of the increase wrong in percentage - so I mistakenly jumped the gun and thought that this was yet another increase on the back on the one announced in October. It is indeed, all about the same increase that starts paying out to us in 2016.

    Too bad he didn't tender his resignation from MEMP. Steering that ship directly into the ground is something we could all take a break from.

  • Abbott Laboratories: 10 Reasons To Buy  [View article]
    I believe the overblown sell-off was frankly, silly. For the most part, ABT did just fine - but as with many international companies - they cannot fight the currency headwinds and win right now.

    ABT is a Dividend Aristocrat and I'm happy to keep building out my position with this diversified winner!

  • Take Charge... A Beastly Healthcare REIT With Room To Run  [View article]
    I agree, Rose - and added more shares not once but twice in the past 2 days. Next up is my hope that VTR gets whacked down to the $51.40 level again so that more of those shares can be scooped-up as well!

  • Abbott Laboratories (ABT) Reports Q4-15 And Provides Low Guidance For 2016  [View instapost]
    I think the selling, which has the stock down about 9% right now, is waaaay over-done. ABT stock price crashed thru a key technical level and so there was likely a large amount of selling due simply to that stop being triggered. I stepped in and bought ABT this morning and am happy to keep this Dividend Aristocrat with BUY ratings from both S&P and M*.
