  • An Alternative Design For A Retirement Income Portfolio [View article]
    Sleuth,

    I have a IRA CD maturing in exactly 16 months.
    At that time, I will need to invest that money to provide dividend income.
    I can assure you that the majority of my purchases will come from Mr Fish' list.
    I wont have the luxury of market timing,or buying the dips,all proceeds from the CD will need to be put to work immediately to produce.

    Great article,please continue to keep us posted

  • American Realty Capital Properties: Rapid Growth At A Cheap Price [View article]
    Brad,
    Thanks for your take on this situation.
    I rarely see things differently than you,but on this one I do
    I trust your opinion.
    Since Im still "holding" 890 shares,I hope Im wrong.
    As stated above,management said one thing and did another,cant see how you could or would respect that.
    Would Realty Income pull a move like this ?
    Im certainly not privy to the inside info you guys are.
    This whole deal smells like bait and switch to me.
    STINKY

    Hope you can convince me otherwise,

    Management painted a picture they were about to become the second coming of Realty Income,and they are playing "CRAPS" with your money.

    Syed,
    From my understanding of Darden,they were looking to dump Red Lobster.
    High end dining and LOW END dining are gaining market share in this economy.
    Do your homework on Red Lobster they are NOT gaining market share.
    This entire deal smells fishy to me

    Yes,,I know you all will tell me how stupid I am
    THIS deal stinks,

    Just sold 1000 shares,cant wait to dump the rest.
    You all can tell me how stupid I am,but Im totally against their latest move.
    Acquiring restaurants that are dying,and that I have never liked anyway.
    Cole properties was a good move
    This move isnt .
    Im eating my shorts on this one,but I want out.

  • Retirees: Carefully Traversing The Income Balance Beam [View article]
    Adam,

    My greatest challenge is generating enough "monthly" dividend income.
    KO,PG,JNJ,XOM keep me sleeping well at night,however the monthly payers <funds,reits> are far more risky.
    I am livid at ARCP,and this is a prime example.

  • Retirement Strategy: Dividend Investing And The Accumulation Phase [View article]
    R.S,
    I use the same "halfway"approach when investing
    While I am in the distribution/income stage,I am still dollar cost averaging into my drips.
    Three years into the program now,and I can already see the dividend income rise.
    The toughest part for me is finding monthly payers,as I could not budget quarterly.

  • The Best-Performing Utility CEFs Over The Last 12 Months. [View article]
    I own UTG and depend on its monthly income.
    While it is number 10 on your list,it has been a solid performer for me
    I also own individual utility stocks that pay quarterly.

  • Dividend Growth Investing: Creating Your Own Dividend By Selling Shares (Part 1) [View article]
    Without sounding cocky,I guess my response is I feel confident enough in the strength of my portfolio,that I wont be digging that far into my principal,and will pretty much be just drawing dividends.
    I have full faith in DGI investing,and if anything will "underspend" to maintain my program.
    Im very good at spending money,but am wise enough not to do so if I must live frugal.
