  • Our Dividend Growth Investing Portfolio Plan [View article]
    Great contribution and using all the right tools and S/A contributors advice.
    I have only 1 bone to pick.
    I only own 1 BDC,MAIN,I lack the experience and or faith in that arena.
    As for weighing each stock,I use $10k increments,$10k being a full share.
    Im curious if you omitted MLP's on purpose or you have no interest in that arena ?
    Will you be publishing your portfolio and or the results ?

    Happy New Year
    I made 3 moves this week
    I sold about $15k of my "O" at a nice profit,and bought PPL and CAT.
    Reason ? I was overweight in "O" and continue to hold a nice sized position...
    PPL and CAT are both priced attractively for me right now
    In my IRA, I sold $5k of MO,and bought $5K of GE.
    Reason ? 38% gain in MO,left me wanting to diversify into GE.
    I still hold a nice position in MO.

    Not sure what you think of my New Years moves,except I like to diversify and lock in some gains.

  • Dividend Growth 50: Costco Horns In On The Fun [View article]
    I did not sell ALL of my "O" or my "MO"
    I simply locked in some profits to diversify.
    Both O and MO are at lofty levels

  • The Crash In Oil Prices Raises Questions And Opportunities For A Lifetime [View article]
    Im hoping we see $20 oil,if we do,Im all in,and I do mean "ALL IN".
    At $20,Im selling the car,the house, the dog,and putting every penny into crude.
    At $20 per barrel the CA state tax on a gallon of gas will exceed the cost of the gas itself per gallon !
    Lastly billionaires will be created from those who play this mess correctly.
    Lets hope we get it right !
    Im long XOM,COP,CVX
    Yes I know smaller will bounce back higher,but Im sticking with safety.

  • Why The '4% Rule' Is More Of A Guideline [View article]
    I try to live on dividends only.
    It works fine until you need to make a large purchase,such as a auto.
    Then you need the 4% plus.

  • Annaly: I Am Seeing More Reasons Not To Own This Stock Right Now [View article]

    Will you get mad at me if I remind you I told you long ago to bail ?
    IMHO,this is not a sector for people who think like us.
    Now if I could only follow my own advice as to BBEP,VNR,VNRQ, I could just buy more JnJ

    Happy New Year Bud,
