  • Intelligent REIT Investors Must Stay Focused On Dividend Dependability [View article]
    I Understand why (STAG) is not on the list.
    Do you know the only thing that gives me pleasure? To see my dividends coming in.
    Stag Pays 5.29% every month They used to pay every Quarter they change that back in November now they pay it every month. Had one dividend increase since then.
    I believe that it is in Your SALSA portfolio.
    I would have it in all my portfolios which it is . Ok Ok I only have one.
    Best to you and all

    Thank you Bob
    What a great article you have written .
    Just one comment .

    " Enjoy yourself, it's later than you think
    Enjoy yourself, while you're still in the pink
    The years go by, as quickly as a wink
    Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it's later than you think."

    How true after you have it all and then find that you or your spouse can no longer enjoy life as you would like to. And you have to change your dreams and have new dreams to enjoy what you have .
    Best to you

  • My Transition To Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs) [View article]
    Norman I would take a look at your your beneficiary and make sure you understand how they work specially if one of the beneficiaries pass on

    Beneficiary Form Problems

    For those that already own (or may soon own) an IRA, Beverly DeVeny, an IRA technical consultant with Ed Slott & Company, says beneficiary form problems rank high on her list of least-known facts. The beneficiary form details who will receive the IRA when the account owner dies. In many cases, account owners fail to change the names of their beneficiaries after a divorce, death or birth.

    "Just make sure there is a form on file and that it names the beneficiary that you want to inherit the account," she said. "Without a form, the account will likely go to your estate and be taxable." Or, the account could go to an ex-spouse or some other unintended person. Also, she suggested IRA owners need to look at the distribution options that will be available to their beneficiaries and make sure that they offer the flexibility that they want for their beneficiaries.

    Rollover Problems

    Also, DeVeny said, IRA account owners need to follow-up diligently on any transfers they make to be sure they get into the correct accounts. "Don't rely on anyone else to do this for you," she said. Likewise, IRA account owners need to be sure that rollovers are back into an IRA account within the 60-day timeframe. And finally, they need to know that they can do only one rollover every 365 days per IRA. Although the same IRA can receive more than one rollover, once it has received a rollover it cannot then distribute funds for rollover until the 365 days have passed.

    Inherited IRAs

    ((( Beneficiaries need to know that the name of the decedent must always remain in the title of an inherited account )))

    and that the funds can move only in a trustee-to-trustee transfer, DeVeny said. "It is important for beneficiaries to know this because too many advisers and companies do not know it," she said. A distribution paid to the beneficiary or transferred into an account in the beneficiary's name is taxable to the beneficiary and there is no way to undo the transaction, she said.
