  • Will Dominion Resources Cut Its Dividend? [View article]
    I'm long D and several other utilities, including SO and NEE.
    Your posting was, IMO, poorly worded and lacking key points regarding
    the company's prospects. It seems that you rely on a simple formula to
    arrive at a conclusion to a complex question. I'm alert for negative research
    on my holdings. Not moved by your formula and conclusion about D.

  • Intelligent REIT Investing: Recognizing Risk In Good Times And Bad [View article]
    Very good article. I agree that we should be careful with mREITs--
    double digit returns in today's world surely have a lot of risk. I'm long AGNC, NLY and CYS. My expectations were for the stock prices to decline, but that the dividends would about double the drops in price.
    So far they're all up. I prefer "real" companies--that is companies that
    provide services and products. But for a small part (about 4%) of my
    equities the hugh yields keep me in mREITs.

  • Are Annaly Capital And mREITs Right For Seniors? [View article]
    Over the last decade NLY stock price has been less volatile than the S & P 500. And much less so after dividends are taken into account.
    We each have unique circumastnces, but a small position in mREITs makes good sense for most of us, including us "seniors".
    I'm long NLY, AGNC and CYS.

  • The JPMorgan Apologists Of CNBC [View article]
    I went long JPM just over a year ago when it dipped. Since then its EPS is up, dividend are up and the stock price is up. That performance helps my family enjoy life.

  • Chevron And Exxon: Which Is The Better 'Buy And Hold Forever' Stock? [View article]
    Agree with gldhwk and WallstreetPete. Both CVX and XOM are exceptional companies. Both are the very top of their industry. It seems, IMO, the smarter play to buy the industry leaders with great track records.

    Am long KMI and KMR.
    Intend to add to one today as market's reaction is overdone, IMO.

  • Do Retirees Need A Dividend ETF Or A Portfolio Of Individual Stocks? Part 3 [View article]
    Bob, another fine article.
    A low-expense ETF of CCCs as you describe would be a winner.
    Simple and straight-forward.
    Thank you, again.

  • Which Is More Important - Dividend Yield Or Total Return? [View article]
    BruceCM: Well said. My investment goals are vastly different from
    those I pursued ten years ago. Having retired about eight years ago,
    reliable and growing income became paramount--selling assets to pay the bills can reek havoc with a portfolio.

  • Time To Sell Enterprise Products [View article]
    Interesting. I'm long EPD (along with BPL and others). I share your concerns about the sector. It's somewhat true about pretty much all sectors. Point taken
    that we shouldn't marry our investments.

  • American Realty Capital Properties: Rapid Growth At A Cheap Price [View article]
    Reminds me of the "whale" mega loss at JPM and the recalls at GM.
    I bought more ARCP this week. And started a position in GM. Hope it works out as JPM did. We'll see.
