  • 5 More Monthly Dividend Stocks [View article]
    Charles,
    THANK YOU,and thank you for your honest analysis on ARCP.
    I bailed once I realized what "Nick the Slick" has done to us.
    Others on S/A are still pushing ARCP.
    That really makes me wonder.....

    I immediately sold all of my shares
    Im shocked I am the only one upset,that Slick Nick promised one thing and parachuted off to another...
    I also sold several other reits,as I completely lost confidence,and returned to mostly stocks

    GOOD LUCK FOLKS

  • Is Dow 17,000 Dangerously High? This Comprehensive Review May Surprise You! [View article]
    Chuck,

    Huge amount of information here,you never stop amazing me.
    Your one offering will take me hours to ponder.
    With all the crystal ball gazers pushing their opinions, I cant help but to think "steady as she goes" until October.
    Uncle Sam announced today that interest rates could change then.
    In my humble opinion,watch out for October unless they continue with the easing.

  • What's Your (Dividend Growth) Number?: Part 4 - Creating And Surpassing Goals [View article]
    Is1gto,

    The $1k per month number is simply a NEED.
    I need $1k a month to live.
    I was having huge difficulty budgeting quarterly.
    I admit,it is "my bad",but I just couldnt do it.
    I have monthly payers that pay at the end,beginning, and 15th of the month.
    This provides me a normal bi weekly paycheck.
    To make this work,I purchased funds,reits,and MLPS
    Another strategy is to pick a stock that pays dividends each month,but then I found myself putting more money into a certain stock because it paid to fit the plan.
    I dont want 10K in XYZ stock,just because it pays in November.
    For now this system is working well for me.
    I know that some of you find it weird,but I LOVE to spend money.
    I will mention some names,then you can pick me apart if you wish.
    So far,I sleep well at night.
    Here are my monthly payers
    O,Etj,ETO,Etv,NUV,Opf,...
    The above combination,pays me,$1k per month

  • What's Your (Dividend Growth) Number?: Part 4 - Creating And Surpassing Goals [View article]
    Hi Mike,

    Love this article !
    Also,I love to talk goals,especially when I reach them......
    Here they are...
    4% dividend overall portfolio,plus 4% portfolio growth,8% total return per year.
    $1000 per month in "MONTHLY dividend income", $20k per year in total dividend income.
    Reaching the $1k per month has been the toughest so far,as you must look for monthly payers and by pass some quarterly payers you love.
    Right now I am reaching those goals,but of course if we have that "correction" everyone is talking about,it will throw a wrench into my total return.
    Reaching realistic goals = great fun.

    I will be creating a new portfolio beginning 8/15,13 months from now.
    That portfolio will be real money and called "Fish Chowder Dividend and Growing Income Portfolio"
    I hope you have some time then to help and offer your thoughts.

  • Dividend Growth Investing: Is It A Strategy Of Cliches? [View article]
    Dave,

    Great stuff..
    Many DG investors also use utes and telecoms.
    That can be a whole new article as UTES have been under huge pressure.
    I am as sure we will be using pampers,tissues, and mouthwash,as I am we will be using electric and cell phones.
    I continue to add to my "O",thru dollar cost averaging,even at these levels.
    Stick to the plan...

    Bret,
    I normally agree with you,and I certainly can not argue your analysis on utes or ute funds.
    Utes are the majority holding in my dividend income portfolio.
    However,I dumped ALL of my ARCP
    How anyone can pimp that reit is beyond me.
    They have dont nothing but reverse ground and LIE to investors.
    Say one thing,and do the other...
    Now the CEO is leaving with a fat parachute.
    I look for integrity in the companies I invest in.
    Your pumping "NICK THE SLICK'
