  • Project $3 Million Dividend Results - Objectives [View article]
    Chowder: I was in that recession lost over half my investments in 3 accounts and still haven't recovered. Was 'forced' to retire, so after finding this site and all the great articles, I am trying to recoup with the DGI method, and after a couple of very dubious choices and losses (patience is not one of my long suits, but I am learning), I am slowly recovering. Thank You for all your input (and all the other great authors, too).

  • The Energy Sector - Risk Or Opportunity? The S&P 500 2015: Part 2 [View article]
    Gabby: Interstate 80 was constructed practically in my backyard and across the creek in my backyard - the gas pipeline sections are laying in the creek as the gas company did not find it feasible to provide service pipeline that would cross the interstate - now use propane.

    I like/love doing the DGI happy dance! And it might even be better wearing the t-shirt : )

  • Nasdaq Dividend Achievers: Murphy Oil [View article]
    Hardog: I use NASDAQ site (and the CCC list) to research the dividend records of companies because Seeking Alpha site is not reliable in their charts and information - but SA is great site for article research.

  • Talks between steel union, refinery workers at loggerheads [View news story]
    Was going to school in Pittsburgh during the 80's when the steel workers were asking for higher wages and the state of overseas competition was explained; the union wouldn't bend and the result all/most of the steel mills closed. A year later, when they tried to negotiate the steel mills to open with wages the same or at a reduction, the companies said too bad, tried to negotiate, gave you the figures for the competition and we are closed for business. Probably not the complete unerring facts of the time(s) but this might turn into a recap of then.

  • My Roth Conversion Odyssey (Part 2) [View article]
    Dividendgirl: Did an In-Kind-Transfer last January with HCN stock (because the reit was down at that time) with Fidelity - talked to the nice person over the phone set up a Roth IRA and transferred the stock from my regular IRA. Phone number for Fidelity: 1-877-907-4429, also, Fidelity has a Pro Trader site and there help number is 1-877-409-2421. They will probably be more than glad to help with the transfer of your Vanguard funds, if that is what you would care to do. Also, they have free trades for certain accounts but ask what the time limit on the trades might be.

  • My Roth Conversion Odyssey (Part 2) [View article]
    David: I did a conversion from traditional IRA to Roth IRA last year; in your article you state that you will be taking SSA benefits this year, how will your conversion amount affect your SSA benefit payments? At what amount will the Roth conversion amount reduce the amount of SSA benefits paid to you? Isn't the Roth conversion amount counted as additional income? Just trying to understand the implication of conversion after obtaining SSA benefits

    Thank You very much for your enlightening articles.

  • Wall Street Breakfast: China Posts Slowest Growth In Decades [View article]
    That's why you transfer funds from an IRA to a Roth IRA. The taxes are already paid. Research is good.
