  • Is It Time For Investors To Forgive Banks? S&P 500 2015: Part 4A [View article]
    Chuck,
    WFC is the only bank stock I will own
    If you forced me to buy a 2nd it would be BMO.
    While I am far from a LIBERAL,I have a real hard time forgiving the greed caused by these major banks.
    While I liked "W",he let his "daddies cronies" put this country so deep in a hole,we still cant catch up.
    Now the same gang insists on open borders to keep labor costs down.
    Dont get me started Chuck,I have too many friends who are being forced to retire OUTSIDE the USA because of corporate and bank greed.

  • Retirement Strategy: Can You Look At Your Portfolio Through Rose Colored Glasses? [View article]
    Added 300 shares of T today @ $32.81
    My DGI portfolio is 4 plus years in the making.
    I am now out of fresh powder until 7/2015,at which time I have a IRA cd maturing.
    At that point,I will once again begin the process of patiently buying DGI securities,but this time with immediate yield in mind <I will be 59 and 1/2>

    LONG T,HCP

  • Realty Income: Pragmatism Trumps Dogmatism [View article]
    I am always looking for good monthly payers.
    I cant find many,if any better than "O".
    Yes its over valued right here,but when I factor in the shares I bought in the 40's,Im not in any real danger of losing capital

  • Project $3 Million Dividend Results - Objectives [View article]
    While I know better,I am guilty of reaching for yield.
    Why ?
    Need income.
    Some examples that I am living with are BBEP,VNR,VNRQ.
    At this point I will ride these out or into the ground.
    Excellent update
    Good Luck to your Patriots

  • Backing Into AT&T Using DirecTV, Is It Worth It? [View article]
    I made the move,in fact I liquidated shares of T and bought DTV when they first announced the deal.
    Am I better off ?
    Im not sure,as I missed $8600 of T dividend.
    At this point I simply have to ride it out to see the outcome

  • Realty Income: Why Now Is Not A Good Time To Sell This REIT Nugget [View article]
    I took some chips off the table,but only because I wanted to diversify my portfolio some and what better way to do that but with "GAIN$"
    I bought some PPL,CAT,HCP.
    Once my positions get filled in those 3 securities,I will return to my monthly dollar cost averaging investments into "O"
    In short,I agree with both analysis.
    No reason to sell UNLESS you have good reason.

  • Realty Income Corp: Why Now's A Good Time To Sell [View article]
    I sold some about 2 weeks ago to buy CAT,HCP, and add to my over priced CLX.
    Buying 1 overpriced position is less painful,when paying for it with run up profit.
    This was purely a re-balancing move for me,as I continue to love O as a long term investment.
    "O" carries a 7 time full weight position in my portfolio.
    Its hard to replace O in any portfolio,especially since it pays me monthly.

    Chuck,

    Thank you for your work.
    Now that we know the fines levied at BP,I wonder how you feel about their future?
    I have always felt they will "be acquired" or some type of name/image change would be in order.
