  • 4 Things You Must Know About Buying Stocks Now [View article]
    Frontier may have a nice dividend but it looks to be "on the ropes" (ie its going down hill) as a company. Translated I would not touch Frontier, I would keep Exxon. If you need to sell some Exxon and want to buy something else it will depend on your needs. If you need income because you are retired then check out a solid utility or even ATT (Not Frontier). If you want growth, perhaps a Mutual Fund in Vanguard (call them for assistance)

  • 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.

  • A Dividend Growth Portfolio - How Did Income Hold Up During The Last Recession? [View article]
    BoomBoom -- they all look solid, I am leaning towards picking up 200 shares of TD as you suggest. Let me just ask you about Bank of Nova Scotia as well, I had a recommend on that one a while back. Thanks for the response.

  • A Dividend Growth Portfolio - How Did Income Hold Up During The Last Recession? [View article]
    Bob great article, I have been using SA for about 3 years now and you were one of the first (and best) that I have followed for advise on my Portfolio. I am planning to retire in 5 years. My portfolio is a bit weak with financials and I am thinking about purchasing Cincinnati Financial and a Canadian Bank (I read in a comment(s) above that others are leery about US banks). So to all any thoughts on Cincinnati and any recommendations on a Canadian Bank.
    Again Bob thanks

  • The Numbers Needed For The Prime U.S. Workforce To Recover [View article]
    Good article - does anyone feel that based on the employment situation described here, last Quarter's Earnings as well as the IMF declaring a global economic "drag" that the FED will still raise interest rates this year (perhaps September?) or will they hold off until 2016.

  • What Should PPL Corp. Shareholders Do With A 65% Stake In Talen Energy? [View article]
    The distribution rate is .125 Talen for every PPL so 100 of PPL will generate 12.5 shares of Talen. There will not be any fractional shares, so you would ultimately receive 12 Shares and I think a check (a small check) for the remaining .5. These are currently estimates with the final distribution rate (.125) to be determned on 5/20/15.

  • Dividend Growth Investing Requires Perseverance [View article]
    Chowder, great article and I often check SA to assist in my decision making. One such thought I have now is that I have a dividend portfolio and 3 of the stocks in that portfolio are ATT, Century Link and Verizon. These stocks have a yield of over 4% or 5%. My question for anyone is take a look at ATT. It is a Dividend Aristocrat, but I read many a SA article that says that ATT has such a high payout ratio and lots of competion that is may be wise to dump it. This also holds true for the others.

    Question: When does one sell a Dividend Aristrocat or Champion with the above article in mind?

  • My First Quarter 2015 Portfolio Review [View article]
    Hi Bob, As stated by others always enjoy your articles. I have been developing my own Dividend Portfolio since 2012 and have many similar holdings as you. As a matter of fact your articles along with others on Seeking Alpha have been a very positive influence. Just hit 60 so my portfolio gains in importance day by day. Currently looking at about a 3.5 % overall yield and will continue on my path...
    All the best.
