  • Baby Boomers Need Not Fear All-Time Highs In The Market  [View article]
    A well thought out plan, for us 'regular' folks who worked hard and have a conservative nest egg, and rely upon SS, PT income and/or a small pension. This parallels much of my stock investments, and lifestyle.
    I like it, and I'm glad to have affirmation from this story, that retirement can be lived happily, comfortably, and fearlessly. I am of the mind-set that living in fear reduces bliss and quality of life. Don't worry, be happy.

  • Dealing With Loss (The Monetary Kind)  [View article]
    People, this great article is about concepts and "Dealing With Loss." If you're trashing the mentioned examples, rather than focusing on the essence of the article, then the valuable points were sadly missed.

  • Stay On The REIT Track And Sleep Well At Night  [View article]

    I feel your pain with USAir, and experienced a similar horror, stuck in Philadelphia, which is the absolute worst place to have a USAir connection. Their personnel have no compassion or empathy and no power to resolve issues. It is true, they just hand out tickets to the next flight, and checked luggage is held hostage.

    I would much rather take my chances with REIT's. I have AGNC, NLY, ARR, CYS, and VNR. Although the value has dropped, I do enjoy the healthy dividends. I appreciate your analysis and encouragement to stay the course.

  • American Capital Agency Corp.'s Updated Dividend Sustainability Analysis (Through Q1 2013)  [View article]
    Thank you, thank you , thank you...while I do appreciate analysis and the time taken to write the articles, my short attention span leans to clear and direct.
    Bottom line for me is all the comments to the articles. Thanks to all who keep Seeking Alpha so interesting...originators and those who comment.

  • A check of mortgage REITs as the Fed looks to continue banging away at their net interest spread: Among the pure-agency REITs, HTS, which slashed its dividend last night, -2.3%. Also, AGNC -1.2%, but NLY +0.8%. The non-agency players mostly fare better, DX -0.1%, IVR -0.3%, EFC -0.1%[View news story]
    I love the banter on the REIT's, I am learning as I hold my breath (and my REIT's) AGNC, NLY, ARR, CYS....I bought awhile ago and would like to recoup my loss of the dip in price with the dividends. Any thoughts as to if this is possible?
