  • Adjusting For Lower-Than-Expected Returns In Retirement [View article]

    Excellent article as far as it goes. However, unless I read both the article and the comments too fast, no mention of a retiree's health; which may be excellent at the moment of retirement, but then one year later (or 5 years later) something negative happens. Up goes the expenses (copays, for example). Down goes the working part time (again for example).

    What to do? Eating right and exercising right will not protect a person from all health perils. I do not have an answer, other than if you can live somewhat below your means, some day you may be very glad that you did.

    OK, flame me.

    Didn't Studebaker build the Conestoga wagon?

  • Royal Dutch Shell: Lower Price, More Appeal [View article]

    How to reply while remaining polite? Tough question. My family arrived in USA in 1840 and we very much like it here. You do not have to like it here.

    Ok? OK!

  • I Never Got Jaded About General Electric But Now I'm Going To Practice Caution [View article]

    GE is a total mystery to me and a closet frustration. For me it is doing too well to dump, (up 50% from cost for a double position - what in the world was I thinking at the time? A a great YOC div....) And yet it is the same old company with the same old mgmt and board. My best friend just before he passed away advised me to not invest in GE. Get MLP's instead. Judy, my CPA for past 20 yrs said at the time: "Buy an MLP and say goodbye to Judy."

    Investing is FUN, isn't it?

    As one who has been left w/o a chair in the past on other stocks, your point is very well taken.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: How Low Can Crude Go? [View article]
    Bill Clinton went on the stump big time for Obama's re-election. Anyone taking bets that Obama does NOT reciprocate should Hill run in 2016?

  • Dividends Don't Lie: The Dead Money REITs [View article]

    AGNC is a mREIT, not an eREIT. A bit off topic at the moment.

  • BHP Billiton: Attractive And Sustainable Dividend [View article]

    US Citizens should seriously check out the important difference between BHP and BBL for tax reasons. It reminds me of RDS-A vs RDS-B. A little (or a lot) of DD seldom hurts).

    Long: BBL and RDS-B

  • Has This Clean Energy REIT Left The Train Station? [View article]

    A really good article. Aren't all of yours? Thanks.

    A humorous nit (well I feel that it is humorous): By hobby, I am a logging historian with a focus on 1875-1925, so I know a little bit about trains.

    >>>Has The Train Already Left The Station?<<<... you ask?

    NOT POSSIBLE! Only the Conductor (who by the way out ranks the Engineer to this day) is allowed to shout ALL ABOARD!

    I'm off to hide and do some DD. Thanks again.

    Visa regardless of issuing bank? That is both smart and great news.

    Thanks for the update.
