  • A Dividend Growth Investor's Perspectives On Advisor Perspectives' 'Use And Abuse Of Dividend Strategies'  [View article]
    <<I am willing to have general discussions with friends and relatives,>>

    I have gone beyond that, recommending specific companies for my mother and my late brother's wife. In both cases they are companies that I own.

    My mother's broker (A.G. Edwards) called her a couple of weeks ago to give her an update. 2012-2014 she had double digit increases. 2015 YTD she was down 4.7%. He said that was one of the better records and that he had some clients who were "out of the ledge." Her current dividend yield is a bit over 4%.

    I am comfortable doing that for these two women. Otherwise I am right there with Mike, having general discussions with folks.

    <<The only way you can be sure your income will go up no matter what is if you have a crystal ball. >>

    If one has a diversified portfolio of financially strong companies that have a long term pattern of increasing their dividends, one can be confident that their income will increase year over year.

    Particularly if one practices a buy and monitor regime. There is no matter what; there are good portfolio management practices, how ever.

    But don't let that keep you from setting up false straw-people and then knocking them down. I imagine you feel pretty good about yourself ;)

    <<Some companies need relatively little reinvestment to keep humming along.>>

    Like PAYX, for example.

    I own TGT, EMR and JNJ from your list, along with about 28 other companies (listed in my profile.

    I buy them every time they pay me a dividend, by reinvesting the dividends back into the companies that paid them

  • Has Apple Created The World's Fastest Smartphone?  [View article]
    I am a Apple investor. Shares make up 6.5% of our portfolios, Jan 2016 and 2017 calls another 6.8%. The remainder of our equity portfolio is split among 31 other dividend growth stocks.

    I was kind of surprised to see this article. Speeds and feeds have very little importance to the overwhelming majority of smartphone consumers. It is so 2010. What us not so 2010 are the estimates that Apple is pulling about 90% of all cell phone profits. There is a metric for you, on the geekbench has no way of capturing.

    Apple will increase the dividend again in April, which is when they announce changes to their capital allocation program. Apple has committed to increasing the dividend on an annual basis. We'll see what they do with the share repurchase authorization.

    The Affordable Care Act is here to stay, thank goodness. It is more likely that additional states will take the Medicaid expansion option than it is that the Act will be repealed.

    <<I hope I offer some clarity and insights and ideas (for investigation) on how investors can create an investment portfolio that matches their risk tolerance level so that they can stay the course. >>

    I have seen very little from you that indicates that you offer any clarity at all, to be honest. You seem more like a flag in shifting winds.

    I am an accomplished smoked meat chef - ribs, pork loins and butts, beef tenderloins, fish, shrimp. You would be surprised at the number of women who tell me they want to eat my meat.

  • Measuring The Success Of Your Dividend Portfolio  [View article]
    <<Almost half the dividend stocks that were part of dividend lists in 2007 cut or failed to increase dividends in the past 8 years.>>

    Bob Wells wrote a very good article on Dividend Champions whi cut their dividends back than. It was not near half.

    Which specific lists are you referring to?
