  • Ultra-Low-Risk Retirement Strategy For Folks Who've Saved $1 Million [View article]
    When I divorced and left Jersey in 98,my taxes were 7k per year on a 2300 sq ft home.
    I bought a 1050 sq ft condo in San Diego and my taxes are now reaching $1400.
    Most people view San Diego as more costly than NJ for sure.
    NOT necessarily true.

    RS,

    Interesting you mentioned the very hated word annuity.
    While I have yet to reach 1 million,Im sure as hell still trying.
    I own most of the BTDP,however my purchases are direct/drip,therefore random in price.

    A few months back,I sold LO to purchase RAI.
    At the time I had no idea of the possible take over.
    Beginning to hear much negative in my local news about E cigs.

    LONG,MO,PM,RAI

    Since I direct invest,I dont even chose the price I pay.
    This is purely a income producer for me,and a long,long term hold.

  • Safety, Stability And High Income For The Retired Dividend Growth Investor [View article]
    Bob,

    Always enjoy reading your contributions.
    While I dont own any bonds,I have substituted UTES and T to take up my bond portion.
    I do own JnJ,XOM,and some of the other low yield blue chips.
    I share many of your reit picks,yet dont own BDCs.
    My struggle continues to be generating enough monthly income.

    Look forward to your future contributions.

  • Selecting Stocks For My Second Quarter Watch List [View article]
    Convert yes,quickly NO
    I force fed a conversion,and OVERPAID in some circumstances.
    Keep in mind if it is a stock you love I went ahead and invested the funds as they were available,via dollar cost/drip averaging over a 1 year period.
    For me it has worked out ok,as I caught the market on a upswing in some cases.
