  • Comparing The DG50 To My 3-Fund Portfolio On The Road To Retirement [View article]
    I began my investing career with mutual funds.
    Most notably,I was a disciple of the great Michael Price.
    For those of you who dont know him,you should.
    In 2008 when the great recession hit,I felt well protected.
    Afterall,my mutual fund managers were far smarter than me,Im sure they are selling the losers and picking new winners to keep my returns at 15% per year.
    NOT !!
    That was the point,where I began to take a greater interest in "DO IT YOURSELF".
    Dave Crosetti mentioned the Nifty Fifty was not a must own list,as many of those stocks are now over valued.
    Thirty years from now great stocks will still be great stocks to own,no matter what you paid for them.
    A direct invest low $ amount account allows you to invest small amounts at a time,therefore dollar cost averaging into slightly over valued gems.

    Thank You Michael Price,wherever you are !
    Bill in San Diego $250 at a time.

    My biggest challenge as a dividend/growth/income investor is earning enough monthly.
    Its much tougher than people realize and I have lost precious capital <On paper> investing in pipeline MLP's that pay monthly.
    They also cut their dividends.
    Right now "O" is the only one I trust,and "O" is the largest holding in our portfolio.
    Sure those quarterly dividend checks are nice,but try stretching your check to last 3 months.
    LONG O

  • Replace The 4% Retirement Rule With These 4% Dividend Stocks [View article]
    This coming July I turn 59 and 1/2.
    I will be living on the "dividends only" plan,with no intentions of touching the principal unless its emergency.
    I hope to have close to a "overall 4 % average dividend" by that time
