  • If Mispriced REIT Risk Is Getting You Nervous, Check Out The Preferreds [View article]
    IMO, preferred's typically behave like bonds in a rising interest rate environment. Stick with the short duration's to minimize the effect.

  • Why Investing In Apple Is Riskier Than You Think [View article]
    Once again the comments have more relevant content than the article. A fifty year forward look is a bit ridiculous for an investing methodology.
    Re Samsung, imitation is not as enduring or valuable as innovation.
    Don't give up your day job.

    Just pulling your chain a little.
    But after reading your article I was thinking I should buy a Mac.

  • Apple's Secret Weapon Will Yield All-Time Highs [View article]
    Jony Ive is primarily a graphic designer. He has nothing to do with the capability of the devices. I do think the device would be successful, due to multi-tasking other than telling time, but AAPL needs something more to revive. Rosenberg is wrong with his take on watches. No one wears them as all they do is tell you the approximate time and irritate your wrist. The iDick (...Tracy) would have to do much more.

  • Monthly Pay Dividend Dogs: February Stocks Vs. Funds And Trusts [View article]
    Dance, Thks for your wise comment and posting GG's article on RoC.
    There are numerous instances where I have seen comments to avoid these buy/write cef's due to RoC perceptions. You are quite right in your comment, but you have to repeat it on a regular basis as the 'experts' will continue to issue their warnings re RoC.
    As usual, ignorance is much more prevalent and persistent than knowledge.

  • What's Behind The Drop In Gold And Silver? More Importantly What's To Come? [View article]
    Eagles are 22 carat, maples are 24. Usually maples sell at lower price than eagles. (Eagles 9% less au and approx 2% higher price... maples are a better deal)
    you can buy junk ag from many sources. The banks have separated it out of circulation years ago.

  • CenturyLink: How A 7% Yielder Hit Into A Triple Play [View article]
    It is quite a shame what stupid management can do to a company. They deserve immediate termination.
    Miraculously I sold my last shares of ctl on 2/13/13 as I thought it was getting pricey and the pre div run-up was fading. I bought back on 2/14 but probably won't hold them long as I can't trust stupid management.

  • Team Alpha: Create Retirement Wealth By Investing In This Market [View article]
    In the govt data, it is row 21, not column 21. Also the private sector spending has decreased from 5 to 6 % down to 1.5 range from 10 and 11 vs 12. I believe that is the result of the lack of trust of the current administration.
    If obama is cutting spending, why are we running 40% deficits yoy? (Is it because numbers don't lie, but politicians and their statisticians do?)
    I'm not buying your theory here, but that is just my opinion.
    I agree with the rest of your article, however and have tried to live my life that way, hence the cheapskate reputation.

  • 12 Things To Dislike About Dividend Investing [View article]
    G: you know, of course, that wine tasters must expectorate rather than swallow the wine. If you swallow, a fee is applied to your wage. It is a tough way to make a living.

    I've tried the drips, but it seems that you are frequently buying consistently at the highs. I favor div. accumulation and opportunistic buying method.
