  • 3 High-Yielding Utilities For Rock-Solid Income [View article]
    This the 2nd article I have read this week by this Author. I come away thinking he is not disclosing, or doesn't find, every thing of importance.
    He says "The dividend was raised steadily every year during the period 1993-2008. Thats a pretty good history..."
    That's NOT , "Pretty good History" currently.

  • 3 REIT Preferred Stocks For Yield-Hungry Investors [View article]
    Having been a student of pfds, I am amazed you are touting HCN-J at $26.70, and NNN-D at $26.45. Each are paying about 6.1% vs what they were priced at Par. Further, there is a flurry of surprise calls by all companies, who can refinance at much lower rate.
    Whenever the call comes, it will be a immediate loss of aprox 7% capital, or a year of divs.
    I find your article offering very bad advice to novice investors, and otherwise absurd.

    "there may be an advantage to doing so this calendar year given the pending changes to the long-term cap gain rates. "

    The operative word is" MAY"!! You seem to lbe eading, without any real Idea of what's going to happen!!

    I suggest keeping your powder dry--Things may turnout to be ok.

    I have all my PFDS in my IRA w/ significant profits. Otherwise, I don't understand selling, and buying PFDS mentioned above par, and with such immediate calls. Almost a zero sum game!

  • Buy MPLX Today For Dividend Growth [View article]
    Todd,jdh44
    Each year in the past, I have transfered div paying stocks at RMD time,paid ord income tax, and the stocks reset basis at time of transfer!!
    In early 2012, I transfered some MLPS inthe same way, paid ord income tax--so I'll find out in spring 2013 when K-1 s show up.
    I chose not to sell in the IRA, but transfer!

    Todd,
    Won't go north for coffee. What do you see as the "moving parts?, etc?

  • Buy MPLX Today For Dividend Growth [View article]
    What do you think about taking an MLP from an IRA, and transfering it into a taxable account by way of an RMD, and paying ord income--thus escaping all the UTBI issues.
    Having paid ord income, the basis of the MLP would reset????
