  • Alcoa: Trading Strategies Before The Split  [View article]
    Is anyone able to describe what exactly will happen if today you own 1000 shares. So in other words would an investor with this 1000 shares end up with 500 of each of the new Companies or would there be a weighted average, based on market value? or what???

  • Dividend Aristocrats Part 51: AT&T  [View article]
    T - debt, Management says debt pay down a priority, I lean towards that being true. My fear is if they follow the US Gov. especially the Democratic view on debt (i.e. more and more, but stump on less)

  • Microsoft: A Systematic Buy Low/Sell High Strategy For 2016  [View article]
    Good article, but what are the tax effects of selling and buying should the stock jump in price and then drop, which is what we are seeing these days in the market. Lots of volatility.

  • My 74 Stock Portfolio In Review By Sector, Income And End Of Year Value Comparisons  [View article]
    Hi Rose you are a top notch dividend investor. Just a comment I thought I would see MSFT in your tech portion. And personally I am thinking that Apple is going to dive. Again just my thoughts... I enjoy your articles and actually seek them out, especially when I am making decisions on my portfolio (most recently the purchase of emr). All the best

  • 10 Undervalued Dividend Champions For 2016: Be Greedy When Others Are Fearful  [View article]
    Great article and as of others have mentioned, I give a lot of credence to Chuck's articles. One question I do have or actually looking for others input what about Emerson Electronics (EMR). I have heard/read a decent amount of literature concerning their Cash Flow. Do they have enough to (safely) cover future dividends. I am thinking about adding it to my portfolio. Thanks

  • Kinder Morgan, Inc.: Is There A Storm Gathering On The Horizon?  [View article]
    "Kinder Morgan, Inc.: Clearance Sale, Just $24...Seriously Consider This Dividend Gold Nugget" --

    The above is an article the author recently wrote. Without going into details it sounds like John Kerry (Sec of State), flip flopping as the winds blow.

    Kinder Morgan is in the energy sector which is going through great change via the forces of Supply and Demand, Geo Political, EPA (a bit redundant) etc. This is not to say that KMI should not consider a dividend cut if the financials dictate, it is to say that the author may want to be a bit more long term in his thinking...

  • Do Not Follow The Herd - Sell McDonald's And Microsoft  [View article]
    The author fails to understand that MSFT has basically reinvented and/or adjusted its business model, which takes time. MSFT now has a new foundation with a base price of $45 - $48. Now if things develop further (Cloud, Hardware, multiple new acquisitions) then MSFT is well on its way to $60 or more. Granted that may take a year or two, but that will give the author enough time to understand what is really going on...

  • Microsoft Is Copying Apple's Strategy, And It Will Work  [View article]
    Over the last decade or so MSFT has literally lost and wasted money (in the billions). However current Management seems to have gotten the company on a solid path making MSFT a solid Dividend Growth Stock. This article implies that MSFT stock may soar in the near future and maybe double in a few years. Hopefully MSFT plans of becoming a hardware/software company will make this happen. The Surface product looks to be a home run. Nice article

  • Why I'm Reiterating Income Investors Buy Consolidated Edison Instead Of Southern Company  [View article]
    With Kemper there may be some additional expenses for a year which may (or may not) effect SO, however once online Kemper will grow SO stock price as well as it already nice dividend. "One step backward (maybe) for 10 steps ahead" Now Con Ed has a solid dividend, but my money stays with SO in my dividend Portfolio.

  • What Attracted Me To Dividend Growth Investing, Part 1  [View article]
    Great article and I wish you all the best. Just to share to you what can be accomplished, I did not always do the right thing in life but one thing I did do right was to start a DRIP program in my early 30's. I purchased 1 share of stock in 7 companies for about a total 0f $200. Over the years I watched the reinvestments and made additional contributions ($10.00, $25.00 $100.00, whatever extra money I had in the check book at months end). A few years back I changed that DRIP program to a Dividend Growth (in some ways the same thing), and today my Div. Growth portfolio approaches 1 million. Retirement is about 4 years away. And please do not read this as me saying I will have a million. Read it as what anyone can and SHOULD do. I wish you and all investors the very best.
