  • Quest For Growth: How Does A 20% Dividend Sound? [View article]
    I think this stock is listed on the pink sheets with a price around $10. It may allow for decent dividends and even profit, but the risk is very high. Not saying that one should or should not buy it if you want to chance a flier, am saying that it has no place in a growth/income portfolio.

  • Emerson Electric's Dividend Is The Only Reason To Own It [View article]
    Emerson Elec has low debt and a solid return on equity. The article is correct about the dividend, but to me this stock (first is solid income stock), but second I think would be an excellent "buy low (now) and sell high (7 to 10 years)" .

  • Will The Dividend Grow? [View article]
    Dollar$ - that (the number of stocks to hold for proper diversification) is an argument that a 100 books could be written about. But (and as you are probably stating) an income investor needs to properly diversify.

  • 10 Stocks Delivering Good News With Higher Dividends [View article]
    Clueless: Diversify and with that type of cash and not knowing, I would go to the Vanguard Web Site and check out their target date funds and call them for advice. Also you could read some SA Articles (Fish, Wells, Carnevel). Check around, get knowledgeable before you make a move...

  • Why Microsoft Remains A Solid Buy [View article]
    Sark - MSFT dividend rate is right around 2.8%, which is not a bad rate overall and one of the higher rates for a tech stock. Not too mention that MSFT has nicely increased the dividend over the last few years and will probably continue on that path. And finally with a Cash hoard of way over 50 billion places its dividend in a very safe mode. Pricewise I also think you will see MSFT at $50 in the near future and not in the $20's.

  • Why Microsoft Remains A Solid Buy [View article]
    Good article, and a hold recommendation for sure. As far as a buy is concerned one wonders. Again MSFT had a multi billion dollar write-down via its Nokia loss. And one continues to wonder what direction MSFT will take. Tons of little purchases here and there and the Cloud looks promising (actually looks good), but where will true future growth come from???. So I see MSFT as a nice hold (and as you mention a decent dividend), but as a buy ??? I guess for a Dividend Portfolio, but Growth there are a lot of other stocks worth checking out first.

  • Microsoft: How Windows Will Become Obsolete [View article]
    They got the money out of your taxes. I would not mind the government supplying a standard, extremely low cost smart phone to people, but it is unreal that people who receive a benefit need an i6 apple.

  • NYT: Major job cuts expected at Microsoft [View news story]
    I own MSFT and to be honest have made a nice paper gain. Also use MSFT as one of my income stocks in my Dividend Portfolio. And over the last several years I have basically defended MSFT against many of the critics. Now I still plan to hold on to MSFT, but my lord they seem as bad as the US Government. A great Company/Country that wastes money and makes many a bad move regardless of who is leading.

  • Alcoa Earnings Preview: Stock At Critical Juncture, Fundamentally And Technically [View article]
    Brain, again you supply a very good article. I bought AA a few years back when it was around $8.00. As time went on all sorts of great talk for AA with some analysts stating that AA may head back to the days of your... ie $40.00. Now we see that AA is heading (as your article points out) or has the potential to head back to $8.00. Today Ford is selling there F 150's at a nice clip (using Aluminum) while GM continues to use steel. Aero space is picking up and AA did a nice job making that transition and going into specialty metals. So as you say this is a key quarter for earnings. We shall see as time is always the true teller... I do have a question for you and that is it will take several more years to complete the total transition; AA from a smelter to a specialty metals company and once that occurs do you think AA will rocket into the $20's, $30's or more???

  • July 2015 Stock Considerations [View article]
    DivHut - nice article and you captured my attention as I just purchased a Bank Stock (Peoples United - PBCT) and will purchase two additional stocks by years end. Therefore at the end of 2015 I will have a Dividend Portfolio of 25 stocks. The stocks under consideration are: Bank of Nova, Toronto-Dominion, Cincinnati Financial, Wells Fargo, Ventas, Target, CISCO and Emerson Electric)

    Several you post in your article, and I currently own HCP. As you say there is always some bad news to give an excuse not to invest. However, when building a dividend portfolio one needs to look at certain metrics such as payout ratio and a long term horizon.

    Anyway a nice read and good luck to you.
