  • AT&T: Dead-Money?  [View article]
    Christopher, - I enjoyed the article....Thank you!

    I am Buyer #3 within $.03 ($30.41). I bought a small amount of T the first week in February 2012 to "test the water." My ONLY regret with T is that I did not make it one of my portfolio's larger holdings. Instead, I was off buying the likes of ARR, GGN, & AOD to name a few, because I was wanting mostly monthly dividend payers......being new to managing my own portfolio. Live-n-learn!

    I do add to my T holdings every chance dips in the market provide opportunities & when I have available cash. Unfortunately I seem to always buy at what I think will be the bottom before it goes back up, when most times it goes down again :(

    Best Regards,

  • Retirement FrontLine: Your Scared Straight Retirement Journey Begins With That First Dividend Check  [View article]
    AgAuMoney, - that makes it an easier choice and also depending on the ability of the pension to be left to beneficiary's is a biggie for me. Thanks for the response.

    AgAuMoney,

    "I in 2009 did a pension lump sum rollover to an IRA. If I am able to achieve a 10% YoC by the time I turn 65 the dividend payments will exceed the promised pension payments and I will have the principal in addition, unlike the pension"

    In a effort to clarify something in this statement, did you take into account the growth your pension would have had, if left where it was, in comparing the dividend payments your rollover IRA will be paying when you turn 65?

    I will be facing a similar decision and would appreciate any insight from someone with experience in rolling over a pension versus leaving it.

    Best Regards,

  • MoPay Dividend Yields Average 21.3% For Top 10 Stocks, 18.9% For Funds As They Move Into November  [View article]
    Fredrik, In your "Dividend vs. Price Graphs for MoPay Stocks, Dow Index and FTs," the total dividend increases from $1,563.83 in Dec. 2014 to $2,128.73 in Nov. 2015. Question: How is this possible with none of the stocks increasing their dividends and most of them reducing dividends? Can the cumulative DRIPPING really increase the dividend income by $564.90 from Dec. 2014 to Nov. 2015?

    Thanks,

  • Sure, MORL Pays 25+%, But You Get To Keep Your Money With DMO  [View article]
    Stop losses are a joke! Those that have experience using stop losses during crashes like the recent one on Monday, August 24 of this year found out how setting a 10% stop loss didn't protect your investment.

    My Edward Jones "adviser" recommended a certain stock on July 21. I got charged a "DISCOUNTED" 1% brokers fee and he recommended a 10% stop loss to avoid more loss than that if the price were to drop. The shares were purchased at $167.07. when I got up to look at my Edward Jones IRA account on August 24, my shares had sold at $125.97!!!! over 28% less than the price the day before!!!!! But hey......he discounted the brokers fee for that sale to 1% also......WHAT A GREAT DEAL!

    By the end of that day the share price had almost recovered to less than 10% down from the previous day. Now ULTA is over my initial purchase price as of this comment:$167.23

    So, don't believe what some call "investing 101" and that there are guarantees of a set and hold loss limit!!!

    Best regards,

  • Could A Classic DGI Strategy Go The Way Of Buggy Whips? Welcome To The New Age: The Frankenstein Fund - Income Generation On Steroids  [View instapost]
    GGjr, - I'v done the "backdoor Roth" method for 3 years running now. I still work and have a 401K at my company, but my Wife (a Teacher) does not have any retirement (IRA/401K/457B, etc..etc..) through the school district. I opened an IRA and a ROTH under her name at Scottrade. Every January I deposit $6,500 into the IRA and 2-3 days later I do a conversion to the ROTH account. If you are not married, then this doesn't help you, but maybe others???

    For some reason I was under the impression this article was about REM versus MORL......it feels like a Quentin Tarantino movie that keeps changing back and forth between totally unrelated stories. Go Figure!
