    Chowder,

    THANKS,and I hope you are correct.
    Folks here in San Diego are raving about the new solar roof shingles,which also happen to be fire resistant.
    Now there is a winning stock,whoever builds them..

  • Protecting Your Income Portfolios In Today's Market: Consider Defensive Utility Stocks [View article]
    Chuck,
    I come from the "CHOWDER" school of investing when it comes to UTES.
    Unlike Chowder, I buy regulated utilities,not just unregulated.
    We own AEP,ED,SO,NEE,DUK,WEC,...
    We am very happy with the performance of UTG and its monthly paycheck.
    We also recently purchased AWR and WTR.
    Now,a question
    Here in San Diego SOLAR and WIND power are growing like gang busters.
    T Boone and Warren are both very high on the above,and some people feel that within 10 years this could really hurt the utility industry.
    Your opinion on utilities being over run by new technology ?

    Thanks as always for your help,
    Bill in SD

  • American Realty Capital Properties: Get Ready For A New CEO [View article]



    It is little wonder that ARCP's stock has been languishing in recent months. The company has committed several major miscues, while confidence in Mr. Schorsch's management and leadership skills has likely never been lower. However, as shown by the market's reaction to the CEO stepping down, change is a good thing for ARCP.


    When you buy a dying restaurant chain, intelligent people dont lose confidence they wonder if its a MADOFF deal.
    Now he resigns to enjoy his billions,,,smells like rotten lobster to me...

  • Realty Income's Business Model Is Similar To Mine As A Dividend Growth Investor [View article]
    DVK,

    Because I live in San Diego I was able to attend Realty Income's recent shareholder meeting.
    While I am by no means a shareholder meeting expert,I walked away impressed.
    One shareholder/investor asked the CEO John Case, "Not only am I a shareholder but I also invest in rental properties on my own,how are you able to find favorable properties in this business environment"
    Mr Case explained "Relationships,we have built ongoing steady relationships over many years with many partners."
    To me that spoke volumes.
    DVK, Im curious if you are adding to your O position at these prices OR are you like most people waiting for that correction that will take O below $40 ?

    Thanks for this fine article,
    Bill in San Diego
