  • Spice Up Your Retirement Portfolio With REIT CEFs [View article]
    I always enjoy you articles John.

    I too was looking at RFI just as rickevan mentioned. I haven't pulled the trigger on it yet.

    I like that RFI is an unleveraged version of RQI although it seems to have been in a downdraft recently. Perhaps it is a buying opportunity.

    Keep those articles coming. We all enjoy your research.

  • Time To Exit Municipal Bonds [View article]
    I have been reading the easy money has been made for a long time, munis, S&P, large cap, etc , etc.

    Fact is no one has ever been able to predict the future.

    Muni Bond Guy,
    I am with you. Meredith Whitney is a hack and there should be a way of suing her and 60 minutes off the face of the earth.

  • What Happened To The Dividend Growth Investor Who Didn't Cut And Run [View article]
    I have a relative that retired over 15 years ago at age 62. He has always lived comfortable and within his means. He did nothing to his portfolio during the great recession.

    His net worth is now greater than it has ever been.

  • Why The Shiller P/E Is Useless [View article]
    yours is the best comment on this article.

    Since the dawn of mankind men have been trying to predict the future. From chicken bones to tea leaves to the Oracle of Delphi.

    Today we have prognosticators that read charts rather than chicken bones. All sound just as convincing as those former Oracles. Yet, all have failed. Quit trying to predict the future.

  • Why The Correction Didn't Become A Crash [View article]
    I work for a major manufacturing company in the SouthEast. An expansion of $60 million in the central USA was just announced. Another expansion of $120 million and 600 employees will soon be announced.

    Other expansion plans the USA that could easily reach $300 million being considered.

    I keep in constant contact with commercial real estate developers East of the Mississippi. All of them are telling me that vacancy rates for commercial and industrial property are at record lows and construction is starting in earnest.

    All these negative and challenging comments indicate there are many that are still out of the market. In a year or two you will publish an article telling us this is a bubble. If you get this many skeptics I will pull out of the market.

    I went all in during the 2009 debacle and will retire early thanks to you. Thank you for your insight.

  • Lesson Learned: I Was The Sucker [View article]
    No matter how much research one does on a company at some point one has to trust the integrity of senior management. Integrity cannot be measured. Before he was caught everyone thought Bernie Madoff was a man of great integrity.

    The people to blame are the CEO and CFO of ARCP and not Brad.

  • Why The Correction Didn't Become A Crash [View article]
    In my part of the country (SouthEast USA) the economy is doing very well.

    Home construction is humming along and new homes are selling quickly. The empty stores in the strip malls are filling up and new strip malls are being built.

    Several new million plus square foot distribution centers are under construction. Several manufacturing companies have announced expansions. Good qualified employees are hard to find.

    Look around and one can easily find evidence of a strong growing economy. Quit listening to the pundits who are motivated by ratings and following the script of the week.

  • Dividend Zombies - Over 100 Years Of Uninterrupted And Undiminished Dividends (Part 1) [View article]
    You now have 50 comments in a very short period of time. There are probably 10 times as many readers as there are comments.

    Time to work on that algorithm for this ETF or CEF so we can start investing.

  • Equity CEFs: Funds To Buy And Sell Heading Into 2015 [View article]
    It is best to buy when many are predicting a crash and sell when everyone is predicting a rising market.

    Read anything from Warren Buffet and read "One Up On Wall Street" by Peter Lynch and you will understand.

    Thank you again for the timely insight. I have a large position in GRX and the Eaton Vance funds you mention.

    Great concept. Perhaps a closed end fund and spicing it up with a little leverage.

    Create the algorithm for the index and sell it to Eaton Vance or Blackrock. I would be a buyer.
