  • Can You Retire With A $1,000,000 Portfolio? An Urgent Follow Up [View article]
    My solution is , I have hired an Investment Advisor 10 yrs aag, on a fee basis. I have prepared a letter[and update] with objectives for going forward.
    My wife will never get to intelligent investing.
    I have also prepared a disk w/ all my papers, and personal requests to my
    wife, and Son[administrator].
    To expect your wife, or anyone, to pick up on safe investing in less that 20 yrs experience is foolish.
    I sleep nights!

    RK,
    I continue reading all your articles and associated comments, and have gained a useful understanding. Thanks for your candid efforts.
    QUESTION: What is the relevant IRS information regarding securities re-setting to market prices, on death of the holder? Thanks.

  • Retirement Investing For Patient Investors In Search Of High Returns [View article]
    You know that cost basis /share reduces as more divs are paid!
    You already told me that! The original cost never changes.

    Give us your idea, on how the cost basis can go to zero?

    The original cost will always be the basis--not changing, unless you sell all, or part of the shs.

    ETP has a 8+ % div, not changed in a few years, Revs, and profits have increased. Is the GP inhibiting Div growth?

    SUMFLOW-
    I'm at a loss to understand, why KMI has income in need of sheltering.
    KMP would do a better job if you want shelter.
    I'm long KMR, and don't believe my cost basis will ever change.
    I think you got your symbols mixed up. KMP would reset on death, the IRA won't.
    Check w/ your CPA.

  • 3 High-Yield Dividend Stocks In Uptrend Analysts Recommend [View article]
    RE EBF
    Printing, and products decreasing y/o/y.
    RRD an example of such history.
    I'd be scared of EBF, as it could be just a matter of time, before it tanks.

    Looks like your projecting KMI's div increases to be more than 2x KMP indefinitly{wow!}. Very short term thinking, not practical. There's more to consider than just a few years increases.
    What happens when KMI divs = KMP/KMR divs? Will KMI head toward the moon? Sorry, I won't dream such.

  • 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.
