  • AT&T And 'Losing' To Inflation [View article]
    There is the old line of thinking that if you have enough income you dont need to worry about inflation.
    T carries a sizeable portion of my portfolio and Im always looking for more at the right price.

  • Retirement Strategy: My Exclusive 2015 Portfolio For Seeking Alpha Is Ready Right Now [View article]
    Happy Holidays RS
    It has been a pleasure following your portfolios as we share many of the same choices.
    I will be constructing a new 200k portfolio in July of 2015,with the proceeds of a maturing IRA CD
    Same rules as yours,dividends will not be re invested
    I wonder how many of today's choices will show up in my new portfolio ?

    All the best for 2015

  • Dividend Growth Investing: How I Derive The Top 40 (Part 1) [View article]
    Hey Folks,

    I am by no means a expert on excel,I know the basics.
    Way back in my sales rep days,we had a rep send out pricing,with the "cost" column hidden.
    A few buyers were sharp enough to realize they could "unhide" columns if running the same version of excel.
    Needless to say it caused nightmares.
    Never hide a column that you dont want seen by someone else

  • Recent Sale: American Realty Capital Properties [View article]

    I sold ARCP immediately upon learning they were becoming the new Red Lobster.
    Some of the more arrogant commenters here called me a IDIOT.
    I can not GLOAT enough,as they got the "BIG SLICK NICK" and I got out.

    Many people rolled their funds over into O

    Happy Holidays

  • It's New! It's Nifty! It's The Dividend Growth 50! [View article]

    Congrats on your new portfolio.
    I will be doing the exact same thing in July 2015,when I have a IRA CD maturing.

    I share many of your choices,but my first thought was I hope you are investing low or no fee when buying small lots.
    My second thought was you darn well better love the stocks you are buying to stick with the "no buying or selling rule"

    I look forward to updates on your new portfolio
