  • Kraft And Quibbling Over Yield [View article]
    Agree 100%, no need to split hairs over a few bucks if everything else looks good.

  • Are Dividend Contenders The Real Champions? [View article]
    Yeah it's disappointing. Same damn thing happened to me with HNZ which I had a big position in.

    CAT was one of the last stocks I thought might interest you. Shows you how much I know!

  • Are Dividend Contenders The Real Champions? [View article]
    I started buying CAT a year and a half ago and agree it's quite a wild ride. I'm holding it at $82 and as long as the solid dividend increases come through I'm good with that. Definitely agree it's not for everyone, especially when you pay too much for it.

  • Buh-Bye Wal-Mart, Hello Emerson Electric, Qualcomm And AbbVie [View article]
    Sold my WMT shares last year after the crummy raise.

    I've owned ABBV since it was spun off by ABT. A bit volatile but should fit in your portfolio nicely. They just raised the dividend a 4.2% but it was twice this year. I want to keep an eye on that.

  • Searching For Dividend Deals That Benefit From The Strong Dollar [View article]
    I recently read TGT will tone down the dividend increases for a year or two to get back on track. Makes sense, no need to be stupid. I own a 4.6% position at $59, we'll see.

  • People Are Buying Johnson & Johnson, But I'm Not Just Yet [View article]
    I bought a ton of JNJ about 4 years ago when they were having all the recall problems, netted out around $61 as I recall. Today it is a 7.2% position that so far has given me zero worries. As long as they keep giving me decent dividend raises I'll never sell it.

    That's why I believe a smaller number of carefully chosen stocks is preferable.

  • ONEOK Reduces Dividend Guidance, How Bad Is It? [View article]
    Thanks for the update, pretty much how I feel about it. It's a shame the dividend growth was lowered, but it's still good by me (for the time being).

  • Dividend Growth Investors: I Have A Few Questions [View article]
    Hi Bob,
    Good article and it should present plenty of different points of view.

    I believe "less is more"; 20 positions or so should do it. If an investor needs 50 or more to feel safe I get it and don't have a problem with it. But I wonder about the comparison of #1 vs #50, and if you're losing out on quality.

    Certainly there's more than 50 stocks worth holding, but I've always felt it was easier to pick 20 of them than 50.

  • ONEOK Bails Out On Planned Dividend Growth For 2015 [View article]
    I'm a new investor in OKE and I was looking forward to 14% dividend growth. But I'll take 4%-8% at 5%. I have a small position, less than 2%. Good article, thanks.

  • Wal-Mart: 2 Strikes... And You're Out [View article]
    Sold WMT a year ago after the first puny increase. I could have held onto it, but I hate going into the stores so much it pushed me over the top.
