  • DNP Select Income - Steady Income With Possible Premium Expansion Kicker [View article]
    NHF looks better than DNP but at 2.74%, it has higher fees than i care fore. Don't get fooled by its payout with 30% leverage.

    I will never buy a cef that can't cover its dividend (unless I don't know what I'm doing). If unii is negative, they can't cover it.

    If they continue to fund payouts with issuing preferreds...THEN THAT IS A PONZI scheme. Extremely dangerous...beware.

    hmmm...the aiv preferreds do NOT meet your cdx3 criteria.

    Looks like you are lowering your requirements in search of yield, right? Goes against what you say in your cdx3 books.

  • DNP Select Income - Steady Income With Possible Premium Expansion Kicker [View article]
    I wouldn't buy DNP.
    1. It trades at a premium to NAV
    2. Much of the monthly payments are currently Return Of Capital
    3. It has negative UNII....bad.

    expect a divvy cut not to long from now

  • Retirement Strategy: The Absurdity Of Believing That Dividends Don't Matter In Retirement [View article]
    Actually, Total return is more important than dividends.

    However,

    You don't know the total return until the end...so, given that you have to start without being able to predict the future, I say that dividend investing is better than shooting for total return because dividends are more certain than guessing where the price is going to go...and therefore lowers volatility. Enuff said.
