  • The Numbers Are In! [View article]
    Inz,

    As for your question of what to do with IPL...I would hold it and not add more. As you are in the accumulation phase you can reduce IPL's content by adding new money to other holdings. That's usually what I preferred to do with "runaway" stocks.

  • The Numbers Are In! [View article]
    Inz,

    Good article! I have very similar quarterly returns, minus the contributions, as I no longer add new money to my portfolios in retirement. The 2013 dividend amount showing in your FastGraphs chart of IPL is definitely wrong. It should read $1.16. The error can't be blamed on currency conversions as the chart is the reflective of the TSX listing with all figures based on $CAD. You should report the error to FastGraphs. Hope your summer becomes less busy for you so you can enjoy it more. Summer is much too brief in our neck of the woods!

    CDGI,

    Good article. You have some fine tips for determining buy levels but, technically speaking, moving averages should not be considered support levels. A support level is defined as the price level which, historically, a stock has had difficulty falling below. It is thought of as the level at which a lot of buyers tend to enter the stock.

  • My DGI Plan: How I Keep Investing Simple [View article]
    six,

    "The only reason to hold individual securities is to outperfrom the market (otherwise just buy SPY). Holding more than 30 stocks does nothing to mitigate risk."

    A DGI is not in the game to outperform the market. The primary reason a DGI holds a large number of stocks is to minimize income risk should a stock cut or eliminate it's dividend.

  • Cutting My Dividends By 35% - Improving My Dividend Growth Portfolio [View article]
    I just compared performance numbers at "Low Risk Investing" to "Morningstar". They are both the same. I know Morningstar's performance numbers, which include dividends, are accurate as I've hand calculated them myself. Are you sure "ETFreplay" performance numbers are accurate by comparing to your own calculations?

    CharReg,

    Thanks for that but I'm after historical holdings. If I only used the current one's I'd be dealing with survivor bias.

    Bob,

    That would be interesting but I'd equal weight them for back testing. As they're both Vanguard funds I'll see if I can get annual top 20's from each. Getting hitched & off on holidays this weekend so it'll be a while before I get around to doing my research.

  • Chevron Should Form A Midstream MLP To Unleash Shareholder Value [View article]
    Michael,

    CVX is a highly regarded dividend growth stock with investors worldwide. As you say the majority of shareholders are American. The remainder of us would likely not vote in favour of a spinoff MLP unless it generated more value in the parent company. My primary interest in CVX is the dividend growth which helps fund my retirement.

    advisor4,

    "low risk investing doesnt show total return = growth of wealth including dividends unless you run the funds one at a time."

    Actually it does. Check the table below after inputting your selections at Low Risk Investing. There is a line for each entry showing individual performance numbers.

    MLPs only benefit American shareholders. Non-residents are saddled with a 35% non-recoverable withholding tax on distributions. Due to this aspect MLPs are not held in high regard for income outside of the U.S.
