  • 28.34% Advantage To 5 Dow Highest Yield, Lowest Price, May Dogs With Merck [View article]
    I wish I had the patience to read this much detail, but I don't, and am probably missing out on a good thing. I wish there was a way you could summarize something in a few lines and a chart.

  • Why An Income Portfolio Beats Capital Gains Every Time [View article]
    "Success is 80% psychology & 20% Mechanics".

    I'm sure this reflects your analysis of the investing public from what you've been exposed to. To give you credit, I use a few of your points for one part of my holdings and revisit it about once a quarter to make adjustments. That takes care of that.

    On another part, my philosophy is "0% psychology & 100% Mechanics". But, one must have the proper tools.

    There is no "one way, only way" to make money in these markets. I'm sure there are many who appreciate the information you've shared. It likely fits some people's investing objectives. But I personally use several techniques or disciplines if you like that word better.

    Thanks for your insight into this one. You're a good man.

    Considering it's non-dilutive, it would seem a no-brainer.

  • Pimco's Total Return fund back on top [View news story]
    From a technical aspect on the daily chart, BOND has made a double top with RSI & MACD non-confirmations. I'd be selling it too.

  • Selling Winners In Your Portfolio Is Never Easy [View article]
    To get a different perspective on long term investments, a person can use a monthly chart with a 10-month EMA as a trend line. It may help keep you in a good investment longer. Also, if it's used with BBs, a person can see a reason why EDV is correcting. Like I said, it's a different perspective. Ultimately, everyone uses their own stuff and makes their own choices.

    Darren McCammon,

    Try DBEU, see if that's what you're looking for.

    Also, the Wisdom Tree equivalent of HEWG is DXGE, but those I mentioned have a little less liquidity.

  • CSI Compressco LP - Positioned For Growth In 2015 (Even With Low Crude Prices) [View article]
    I don't know a whole lot about this and I'm looking for oil related services that have been oversold and have a good yield, but, wouldn't an O&G company be reluctant to use CCLP because of the resulting increased cost/bbl? Wouldn't an O&G company just cap the well and look for cheaper oil to pull out of the ground that didn't require CCLP's asistance?

  • Uncertainty Allows For Great Investment Opportunity In U.S. Silica [View article]
    While looking at such websites as Finviz and Yahoo Finance give a fairly good rearview mirror look into times past, the current economic environment is such that investors are looking for indicators that give a more predictive value. I'm sure that could be talked about for hours. The short of it is, who is in the best position going forward considering all the complexities here and abroad. SLCA has my vote and I am long SLCA.

  • Orchid Island Capital EPS of $0.24 [View news story]
    Been holding this one for over a year. It's been one of my better holdings although there's been periods of a lot of noise and uncertainty, however, management has always come through.

  • Dividend Growth: Is It Really The Right Strategy For You? [View article]
    I'm wondering who else picked up GE under $24, or GM under $30, or AA under $8, or CVX under $100, or DD under $64, I could go on. It's why I let dividends go to cash and try to maintain at least a 25%-plus speculative cash position. Dividend growth is only part of my strategy, the other of course being capital appreciation. And as someone above said, yield is relative to price, otherwise known as yield on cost. I rarely see anyone mention that a person should pick their opportunities, but, pick your opportunities.
