  • Designing A Retirement Portfolio That's Just Right For You [View article]
    Chuck,
    Another gem.
    I begin building a new portfolio on 7/20.
    While KO and JNJ are in my current stable,I have yet to add the pricey MMM.
    Schwab is giving me 500 free trades and 1 year to dollar cost average my way in.
    Keep those thought provoking gems coming.

  • So, You'll Switch To Dividend Growth Investing After You Have Your Millions, Eh? [View article]
    Robert,

    I care for my 89 yr old dad with dementia.
    He can no longer walk at all,in bed 24/7
    I am all three shifts.
    We just found out about a VA program that will supposedly pay me to be his caretaker.
    If approved they owe me over 4 years back pay.
    It is NOT a easy job caring for elderly and or someone you care about.

    Shareowner/Wells Fargo is yet to change the symbol or pay the dividends.
    Like I said,direct invest people do not get treated as well as full service paying investors

  • Does My 5.8% Yield Portfolio Have Ideas That You Should Steal? (A Portfolio Review) [View article]
    @Usiah

    "...in today's world Adam and Steve force out Adam and Eve.
    Politically correct and GREED over LOYALTY and NEED.

  • Does My 5.8% Yield Portfolio Have Ideas That You Should Steal? (A Portfolio Review) [View article]
    I remember balking at 5% accounts,thinking that was too low of a return.
    I also remember when a guy began to get older,he got RESPECT in the work place,not forced out the door.
    Everything in today's world is about GREED,and getting the most for the least.

    Nice first article and thanks for giving us some personal info too.
    Each and everyone of us are at a different stage in our lives and investment careers.
    While I am not a CFO,I share each and every investment mistake that you have made.
    Perhaps I feel better now,as I felt that education was mostly mine to reflect on.
    BBEP is killing me,not sure where you stand on cost,but Im at the point where I ride it till the end.
    LINE killed me in the past
    AT cost me money too, and dividend cuts.
    You could use some anchors,utes would be nice
    D is on my radar,DUK,T,VZ,SO
    A bit conservative,but you have many high flyers

  • 10% Correction Feels Imminent [View article]
    Moon,

    While I agree with you,I cant help but wonder if it becomes a self fulfilling prophecy if enough people predict it.

  • Exxon Mobil Corporation: The Only Stock In The American Energy Sector Worth Considering [View article]
    Could get worse before it gets better.
    At some point,the world will have to confront and destroy ISIS.
    I hope it is more than US bombers taking out oil fields.
    The SC tragedy and the confederate flag pale in comparison to these monsters of hate.

    Mike,

    I got to the game late.
    For years I used mutual funds for all of my investment needs.
    Pop used CD's.
    I picked a few stocks on my own,found no love.
    Bought a few stocks on the advice of friends,even less love.
    Then came the recession.
    I knew I would be OK,because I had my money invested in great mutual funds.
    I knew my fund managers would sell before everything tanked.
    NOT !
    So,I am playing catch up,and when your playing catch up,the only way to compete is to dollar cost average.
    That is exactly what I have done and will be doing with the new portfolio I am building.
    Schwab is giving me 500 trades and 1 year to build this new portfolio.
    One year is not enough time,but it will have to be,as the dividend income is needed.
    Timing is everything in buying good quality DGI stocks.
    I know I can never time the market when funds are available,so I dollar cost average.
    Education is expensive,I think Im sailing in the right direction this time.
