  • 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.

    Good Article: If and hopefully when the World economy gets firing on all cylendars, I am thinking AA will go to $30 or more. Granted this may take a few years, but AA looks solid.

    I don't think anyone in SA ever stated or implied that Dividend investing alone is the only way to go...

  • I've Fallen In Love, With Dividends [View article]
    Please re-read my comment and notice the line "and naturally some other additions/deletions over the past 25 years". So "other additions" means the purchase of additional shares, so the current value would equal original purchase + dividend reinvestment + additional purchases. I wish I had kept track of those "additional purchases" (many to most were under $100 dolars). The point of my comment was (which was also stated) was to encourage anyone and especially young investors to invest and do intelligent "buy & hold" So I do not color you skeptical I color you read for stated implications.

  • I've Fallen In Love, With Dividends [View article]
    Jack, Great article and as many have said I love to see a young person investing. I am 60 and sometime in my 30's I bought a single share of stock in 7 different companies (JNJ, PEP, BDX, T, and 3 others) in a DRIP program (Cost was about $250). Today the value of those stocks (and naturally some other additions/deletions over the past 25 plus years) is approaching 1 million.
    Best of luck.

  • The Often Overlooked Danger When Investing In S&P 500 Utility Stocks - Part 10A [View article]
    Yup, another great article Chuck. My take on utilities is that (in general) they offer an income invester (retirement time) a great and relatively safe yield. As far as growth is concerned its a long slow ride, so again for the income investor utilities are to be part of the portfolio.

  • To DRIP Or Not To DRIP [View article]
    HP007 - looked further at PE ratios and in the 90's (at least from thec chart I read) had some PE's over 30 and in 2009 - over 70! So, again, making returns "today" may be next to impossible compared to yesterday. However, my goal was and remains Long Term - so for me it will be a matter of continuing to accumulate shares, but most import will be when I withdrawl.

  • To DRIP Or Not To DRIP [View article]
    HP007 - well I invested over the years, so the PE changed with the investment date. I believe that the PE for the S&P in the early 80's was around 12 and today 20ish. I totally agree with you that making similar returns today may be next to impossible. Investing in the mid 80's and especially the 90's, one could not help but make money. Today much harder and no one can or should expect returns like in the past. In the 90's market up any given year 9% or even 30%. Today (2014 and on) I hope to get 5% to 7%. So again I agree with your post.
