  • VPGDX: Is This The 4% Solution? [View article]
    RGB.

    I need to leave someone with no investment knowledge an inheritance that will yield her ~ 25,000 each year (on a 500,000 portfolio) to supplement her SSA income. So 5% is the goal and I have looked at some Vanguard withdrawal funds with this in mind. Suggestions?

    Also- GAB - How has it performed over time?

  • Facebook: A New Reality In Oculus [View article]
    When someone starts up a business that sells widgets they make money selling widgets. When the Widget Co. runs out of buyers for widgets they will try to sell soap or whatever. This is key to understanding a company that has lost its way.

    There are too many vying for ad dollars. I need to un-facebook!

  • Exxon Mobil: A 3.3% Yielding Resilient Income Play With Potential For Capital Appreciation [View article]
    XOM is a "safe" place to park money. One of my favorites but not now. Dividend growth a bit slow. Still, it is better than bonds.

    Hedge wise,

    Are we talking total return, yield withdrawn/reinvested, what?

  • Revisit Your Energy-Income Strategy [View article]
    Adam,
    Yes, BGR has great yield but NAV crashed last twelve months.
    I have pipeline stocks (PAA) and many bond type CEFs and will need to take another look at MLP CEFs.
    Thanks for this post.

  • Procter & Gamble: Another Dividend Hike For This Dividend Champ [View article]
    I wonder about the effects of the spin offs. After all, they have added some revenues and earnings. How will those earnings be replaced? Reducing interest on debt? Or have those spin offs historically been a drag on PG earnings.

    And the incoming CEO- will he be looking at acquisitions as happens often with new fellows?

    Note: POR for KO is 76%; KMB is 83%

  • Tri-Continental Corporation: A Unique CEF Old Timer That Could Be A Complement To Your Portfolio [View article]
    All,
    With portfolios > 500,000, there are many money managers that can be hired for ~1%. I wonder how they compare to TY and other CEFs (some of which I own; mostly I do my own work).

    George
    what happens to leverage cost with higher rates? How much will it affect distributions?

    Also- why the occasional reference to NPM?

    I am long some Blackrock muni funds- BBK, MYD.

    Do you have any interest in ATAX which yields 9%.
