  • Wait For Realty Income To Fall $9 Before Buying [View article]
    Like the pedestrian,we have been building our position for 4 years.
    Some we bought at 39,some we bought at 51
    I see O as a long term position,so a swing of $2 one way or the other doesnt scare me when investing a few thousand at a time.
    Tune out the noise,full speed ahead

  • Wait For Realty Income To Fall $9 Before Buying [View article]
    I attended the shareholder meeting last week.
    Not a single negative speaker or question.
    A over 60 pep rally of sorts,I would not hesitate to add to my position at todays prices.

  • Sector Allocation As It Pertains To Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    Like you,I love consumer staples.
    Unlike you ,I will enjoy my 5.75% T yield for a long time,while you wait for your 2.3% yields to "grow" anywhere near that.
    You acted like you were insulted !
    UTES provide steady income to offset the lower paying,higher growing stocks.
    Both have a place.
    I prefer not to eat dog food so I can brag how my dividend growth rate is superior to most.

  • Retired Investors: When Dividend Growth Slows What Should You Do? [View article]
    Portfolio goal,4% dividend income,4% portfolio overall growth.
    Live off the dividend income for the next 6 years,until age 65.
    SS and new portfolio goals at that time based on economy,health,life.
    Like yourself,I have faced some tough decisions.
    Sold LNCO,ARCP and took a pretty good beating.
    Benched BBEP and VNR,both are down huge.
    If I can not find DGR,I must create DGR...
    I go back to my "when I was working" mentality and check the box "10% of all dividends re invested"
    Forced DGR.
    For instance my "O" monthly check is $270,instead of $300.
    While it may mean cutting back a dinner or round of golf,its a sure fire way of continued DGR
    Since I was forced to retire younger than some folks here,I still have a "saver' mentality.

    Keep the good stuff coming Bob,
    Bill in San Diego

  • Can We Really Trust Nike's Stock Price? [View article]
    Nike,3m,are a few of the "I would love to own" stocks of the world.
    Imagine a business model,where you pay third world country workers 35 cents per hour to make athletic shoes that sell for hundreds of dollars.
    Perhaps that is why Nike's numbers are so far skewed

  • Exxon Mobil's Dividend Is The Only Reason To Own It [View article]
    For the most part,I enjoy reading your articles
    Then I see this one.
    "The dividend is the only reason to own the stock right now."
    Everything in this world is "RIGHT NOW"
    Nobody invests long term ?
    Just let a "lil war" start up again in the middle east,,and XOM will be right back near $100.
    Oh you think war will never happen in the middle east ?
    Then you live for the "RIGHT NOW"

  • Dividend Growth Investing Requires Perseverance [View article]
    "Nothing magical here. Perseverance, patience, investing regularly, and staying focused on the long game, was my ticket to financial freedom."

    For those of you who have a interest in "O"
    I attended yesterdays share holder meeting.
    WOW,is all I can say.
    It was like a over 60 pep rally
    Not one single negative comment directed towards management.
    Personally, I feel the ship is headed in the right direction !
