  • Left With Too Little, When Averaging Down Fails [View article]
    Shelby: The key word is patience - and it's hard, hard to master. At one point in 2013 the Reits went down, and I got 1 full position (HCP), 1/2 position (HCN), and a 1/3 position (VTR) plus there was a downside on rumor for RDS.B and 1/3 position in that. I got the dividends and meanwhile ran into other excellent stocks that ran down, and filled full (Champions) and a couple partial positions in others (Contenders). Now the market is doing a downturn on the oil companies (added to my position in RDS.B), and the Reits (and been scoping out utilities, too) arewill be falling with the rate raise and I will be adding to partials, and initiating new positions. Meanwhile, I still had the dividends to buy when different things happen in the market (I actually sometimes love rumors on good stocks, buy opportunities). 'Have a little patience... yoh yoh yoh, yeah.....'. :-)

    Thank You for your article; puts things in perspective with your concerns about positioning.

    South Gent: I too am waiting for a pullback to add to the Roth. As for the other question on T, will contemplate it. Charts make my eyes cross and my head nod. Oh, yes, thanks for the interesting article.

  • Bought Back In An IRA AT&T At $32.52 In The Context Of A Total Return Investment Strategy [View article]
    South Gent: I purchase shares in my Fidelty trad IRA and 'transfer' them into my Fidelty Roth IRA when purchase price is at a discount.
    Also, I noticed looking at SA information that AT&T's payout ratio is up to 167% - is this because of the Mexico purchase or an error??? Anyone know?

    smurf: I have HCN, HCP, and VTR - won't touch mReits; got burnt big time with NLY and AGNC starting out my portfolio. Really hope your choices are better than mine on mReits - live and learn. :- )

  • Omega Healthcare Puts The Purr In Performance [View article]
    Contacted SA onetime to inquire about an error on their dividend/chart site, and the reply was that they contract out that segment of their site. They did not choose well.

  • Learning From The Masters: Q&A Session With Buyandhold 2012 [View article]
    Nicholas: Quite the comment screen! An education in itself. My personnel guru on SA is David Crosetti; his articles are the ones that got me on the road to DGI, and how I was introduced to all the other fine authors and commenters. Thank You for the introduction to Buy and Hold 2012. (There is another author on SA called Buy and Hold Falcon.)

    For USA investors, BBL is the choice because BHP is under 15% tax for dividends unless you are an Australian citizen. Although this may be an advantage in a taxable account. ??? The taxable event created by South32 may not apply to IRA accounts. :- ) Have been doing a little research on this - own BBL in a trad IRA account.

    smurf: The payout ratio is eg under 'dividends' - but the metrics of payout ratio for Reits does not apply as to other stocks.
    Under 'safety' I like to consider the credit rating, also. :- )

  • Learning From The Masters: Q&A Session With Buyandhold 2012 [View article]
    Nicholas: One thing has me puzzled - in your article, Buyandhold 2012 states that he only likes dividend stocks, yet he lists JAZZ (an example) as on his watchlist. JAZZ does not pay a dividend.
