  • This 8.5% Dividend Yielder Is A Cash Flow Machine [View article]
    Tom B. what you say is absolutely correct. However I bought both FTR and ALSK about two years ago however, About 10 months ago they both cut their dividend rates and I was miffed. However about six months ago both isuues seemed to right themselves anc now look like theyre worth the risk, Vamos a ver. Thanks.

  • Ride Altria Higher By 2013 [View article]
    About two years ago I both some ALSK as well as FTR was told by some well meaning friends you threw your money away. Then after the end of the year both issues both cut their respective dividends and everyone said we told you so. However issues after a shaky year then seemed to right themselves. Now they are looking better. You never know. Vamos a ver.

  • AT&T: 5% Dividend Yield Is Attractive, But Don't Get Fooled By Today's Earnings Beat [View article]
    Well first of all Id like to say great article. If it was 20 yrs ago It would relegated to heresy. The big T was called the stock of widows and orphans. It payed a regular 5% dividend and everone was happy. You could depend on Telephone the weather and foreign conditions would dhange but not T. Now big T pays aroud 5% but with difficulty. Verizon came from way back and passed T. However right now VZ is having problems. And in present times an income is paramount amongst investors. The average man in the street is worried he wants dividends and capital gains without worries. A dream unfullfilled or otherwise maybe.

  • Telefonica Brasil: 4.61% Dividend With Great Prospects For Growth [View article]
    I like some things about VIV but the Brazilian government leave quite a bit to be desired. Ergo I feel with me VIV falls under the wait and see label. Maybe we should all wait until we see how Brasil handles the spotlight of the coming Olympics before jumping in.??? Also perish the thought of devaluation. Just a thought gang were all brothers...

  • Realty Income's Latest Acquisition A Departure From The Norm [View article]
    Really cant seem to understand the attraction of the above equity in question. In the field of REITS etc there are other equities that far outstrip it. GOOD and ARCP are certainly two examples that should keep our attention ahead of O which seems to be slipping. but then thats only my opinion.

  • Management Alignment: Equal Vs. Zargon Energy [View article]
    Nawar I have been a member of Equal for over 4 years and have tried to reach the likes of Klapko through phone and mail without success. and until you came onto the scene a few months ago I actually was unsure that the company existed.. Klapko should be peosecuted if thats possible. The company like its forerunner (which paid monthly dividends) With Klapko we got a new nameactually 2) but nothing else. If it wasnt for your continual probing and writing Klapko would probably be taking annual raises and bonuses. Thanks for being there and shaking the proverbial tree.
