  • Unlocking The Mysteries Behind The Monthly Dividend Company [View article]
    Brad,
    Thanks for the article. Very informative. I hold a little O (about 2% weight). There are certainly some varied opinions as to its value status. I want to move into it with a DCA approach, and the price is almost to the point that I would be comfortable doing so. Expert I'm not, but I feel like it is slightly overpriced. Hoping for a little market panic.

    A question for you on the Durable Income Portfolio you mention in your article. Clicking the link takes me to your Forbes page, but I find no mention of a portfolio. Am I missing something obvious? Thanks.

    gabby,
    Unless I misunderstand what you are asking for, that feature already exists. After you go to the first new comment, note the arrows next to the word "NEW". If you click the down arrow, you go to the very next new comment. Click the up arrow and you go to the previous new comment.

  • The Case For Wal-Mart [View article]
    Yeah, I had it flagged to look again at $68 or below. Still not sure even then. The dividend growth is lousy and/or pathetic. The increases in the last couple years are have lost out to inflation. Not a stock I'm anxious to buy into right now.

    penny,
    Yup... took me a while to figure out what the arrows were for. Now I use them constantly. Very handy.

  • Should I Shut Up And Buy Realty Income? [View article]
    That's probably why a lot of REIT stocks are held in Roth accounts (or perhaps TIRA's).

  • Is McDonald's Cooked, Or Serving Up More Dividends? [View article]
    I agree, Boom. Some items with a little spice would be nice too. Perhaps a burger with egg, along with strips of bacon that you can actually see.

    zorrow,

    OTOH, a lack of censorship would risk seeing SA turn into another version of Yahoo discussion boards, where the most obnoxious and ignorant commentators thrive.

    Fast Track,

    In my case, writing is not something I'm proficient with. If I were able to though, I would submit articles solely for educational purposes.... my education that is. The comments section is often more helpful than the article. I agree that it's a mutually beneficial relationship. I quite enjoy reading the back and forth between authors and commentators, and usually come away with a better understanding of the topic at hand.

  • Seeking Alpha Contributors And Commenters Pick The Best Dividend Growers For The Next 5 Years [View article]
    Excellent comment, Mr. Fish. That's exactly how I look at it. In about 6 months I will be receiving SS. Since I retired last year, I haven't taken any funds from our investment accounts, though it's been tempting. I suspect that once we have SS added to our pensions, the temptation will mostly subside. It will be gravy like grandma used to make.

    penny,

    "but thanks for putting me in my place, I deserved it"

    Not a problem. Perhaps some day, should I get a little snarky, you can return the favor.

    penny,

    And that is one of the beautiful things about SA. We can follow or not. We can also comment or not. Either way, I have to point out that DVK has many followers (over 10K that apparently don't agree with you).

    SA is a place for varied interests. Apparently your interests don't align with DVK's. It's nice of you to stop by and make rude comments though.

    IZZ,

    Thanks for your reply. I'm obviously not familiar with IQT. I did however recently buy Wright's book. Apparently I need to get busy reading it.

    Rose,
    Gotcha, thanks. Yes, 11.9% is still likable. :-)

    Robyn,
    I agree completely. Some authors are more knowledgeable and/or experienced than others, but no author is infallible in their thought process. With the knowledgeable audience that SA has, I find it admirable that SA authors are willing to put themselves out there to begin with.

    The core concept of SA should be the exchange of ideas. After this occurs, it is quite feasible and acceptable for an author to change their mind. I'm a rank amateur compared to most on SA. If I were to write 10 articles (scary thought), I'm certain that at least 5 of them would result in a reconsideration of my position (just call me Waffle Man). I have no problem with RS doing the same.

    To RS..... please keep on keeping on. Love your stuff.

    Rose,
    Yup, I've been pondering a trim as well, but only if I can find another div stock to buy with the proceeds. I'm having a hard time with that. Seems like the stocks that might be a buy are already heavy for me. I'll continue to ponder though :-).

    BTW... where did you get your earnings forecast? FG gives a number of 11.9%.
