  • 3 Reasons I Prefer Dividend Growth Investing [View article]

    Probably because most CFP's think commission,commission,...
    For many,its all about sales....
    I took a class with the great Paul Zoch of Zoch and Zoch...
    The very first thing he taught us was the number 1 rule to financial planning is <drum roll> "Protect what you have".
    In other words most people are so consumed in making money they fail to protect their existing assets.
    I have a will/trust,along with a umbrella policy over everything I own
    I am over insured

  • 3 Reasons I Prefer Dividend Growth Investing [View article]
    Im all in on your plan with one additional rule.
    Whenever possible,I dollar cost average my way into a stock I like.
    Its slower going,but effective
    While this may prevent me from hitting home runs,the overall accumulation of singles,doubles,and triples work out fine.
    Once per year I remove the "weak link" and add those funds to the other stocks in this portfolio.
    This has worked out well for me especially with utility stocks I own.
    Exceeding $15k per year dividend income and growing

  • Equity Investing Or Index Investing [View article]

    I missed this article on 11/11,so Im glad it was re posted.
    Someone hacked my account here,as I have been in a pi**in match with some of the guys here over ARCP.
    Without full fanfare,you know I am your biggest fan.
    I truly hope you continue along with a series of articles,because like Mr Fish,Crosetti,DVK,The Chuckster,RS,The Bob's,your insight is most appreciated.
    You guys give me <the little guy> a fighting chance in this world of mis-information.

    Again, I will be constructing a "new portfolio' next July with the proceeds of a maturing IRA CD.
    Im hoping to call it the Fish Chowder portfolio and hope that all of the names mentioned above will share their wisdom and insight into building this portfolio.
    I hope that one person will continually share info and write articles on this portfolio <not me>

    All the Best,
    Bill in San Diego <forgive me if I left anyone out,but you guys know who I follow>

  • Recent Sale: Sysco [View article]
    Recently I sold half my "T" position and redeployed funds to VZ and COP.
    Im sure not everyone will agree with that move,but I was overweight in T,and feel both VZ and COP will offer me some growth along with the nice divvy
    Hindsight is always 20/20 on these moves.

  • Is It Time To Buy Exxon And Other Big Oil? [View article]
    I remain LONG,XOM,COP,CVX
    Bought more CVX <P/e of 10> this week
    If oil drops more,I will buy more
    With the next presidential election on the horizon,we could see a solid 2 years of lower oil prices,
    Keep in mind OPEC always lowers prices for our presidential election.
    Two years of lower prices does not mean oil will stay low forever,it simply means they love to control the price of oil and shake out the smaller players.
    I dont want to say I will put every dime into oil,but it could end up being 40% of my portfolio if prices continue to fall...
