I'm a retired accountant with much energy industry experience. I'm seeking quality dividend income to supplement our SS and pension income. At our age, we are risk adverse and hope to see level portfolio balances or a slight increase would also be welcome. That being said, we have found both TPZ and TYG fits our goals of quality predictable income and preservation of capital. We had good fortune with LINE when we invested in one company. But, we almost, not quite, invested heavily in BP right before the spill and subsequent crash. We were saved on that one due to my hesitation. I vowed never again to invest in single companies. I've relented a bit on that in that we now have a substantial position in KMR in our taxable account. Reason: deferred tax on stock dividends. Best of luck to all.
I am a retiree who enjoys investing Long-Term. I reside in California. My careers were as an announcer and a U.S. Postal Service clerk. I have stocks plus other investments. I try to be respectful. I look for investment opportunities that are not as well-known as others. If I read something that a Seeking Alpha contributor mentions and it looks attractive for my investment style, then I will buy it, and give credit to the writer. I am more of a support person than a contributor; at my age, I do not need the pressure of deadlines; trying to find solid investments is enough of a challenge. This Bio was edited September 4, 2012.
