  • My KISS Dividend Portfolio: 1st Quarter 2014 Update [View article]
    That's a great write up. Thanks for the time for putting this together.

    I remember playing the day trading game too. Man alive that was some insane levels of never ending investment stress.

    The best things that ever happened to my investing strategy:

    1. Dividend reinvesting
    2. Finding quality dividend investment advice, mainly from

    It's amazing how now I'm equally fine, and in a bizarre way sort of more ok, with a drop in stock price. Because, hey, look, my dividends reinvest at a lower price, more shares for me!!!! Price on the stock goes up, yeah!!!! It feels like such a win/win.

    No more extreme market timing stress over worrying about buying and/or selling too soon, or late.

    I am so much happier with my investing plan now.

    3D phone? They would have probably been better off putting out a competitively price e-ink phone and challenged the battery life war.

    It's about data mining, then about advertising.

  • 12 REITs That Pay Monthly Dividends And 1 Great One That Does Too [View article]
    Ugh, I hate getting that itchy feeling about something I own. And Brad triggered that for me with ARCP. Especially when my own charts seem to have it poised for a down turn.

  • STAG May Soon Be The Next 'Monthly Dividend Machine' [View article]
    What you're seeing is dividends paid and increasing at quarters 9/28/11 - 3/28/12, 6/27/12 - 12/27/12, and 3/26/12 - 6/26/13.

    On 10/29/13 STAG began to pay monthly. The lower payout rate of .10 during 10/29 11/26 and 12/27 payout would have been been the .30 quarterly payout on 12/27 without the frequency change.

    As far as dividend payouts go, the amount is moving in the right direction. You're seeing regular increases every three months. But by paying monthly your compounding effect increases. Re-invest those dividends and you'll see the effect over time.

    In short, increasing overall dividends and more frequent payout are a good thing.

    But, BUT, consider more than just these bits of info before investing. That's what all the rest of the write up is about.

  • Dividends Offer An Instant Rebate On Your Purchase Price [View article]
    I really doubt a dividend affected the poor business decisions by Kodak. It's just as likely they would have poured that dividend money into their failing business model eyes closed to the future of photo technology.
