  • How To Better Use Capital To Get Higher Income And Higher Total Return [View article]
    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. A primer on "Technical Analysis: Support And Resistance" can be viewed here http://bit.ly/1tl1KFh

  • 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.

    mjs_28s,

    I believe CharReg's list is the current or very recent one.

    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.

    Too funny! Buffet & Munger are value investors who quite like their dividends...check BRK's portfolio.

    Who's to say indexing won't turn out to be the fad!

    Dale,

    If it's total return with safety you're after during the accumulation stage you should take some of your own advice from previous columns & go with a small-mid cap index fund and TLT (or ILTB) mix. Reinvest the distributions & balance once annually. This would give you greater safety & performance than VIG.

    If it's income you want you're better off with safe DG stocks than with VIG or VYM.

    Dale,

    I really believe one would outperform with "skimming" VIGs top 20, equal weighting the holdings & rebalancing once annually in January. I'd like to backtrack to check this for myself. Would you know where I can get historical holdings for this ETF?
