  • Tax-Free Income From Municipal-Bond CEFs: A Closer Look [View article]
    I just checked VFL at cefconnect.com. It appears they have a positive unii for the cef and it looks ok.

  • Tax-Free Income From Municipal-Bond CEFs: A Closer Look [View article]
    According to the graph of EIV's payouts at cefconnect.com, it appears that the payout was reduced slightly a few payouts ago so this would jive with the negative unii.

    Also, if possible, would it not be better to buy municipal bond cefs for the state you live in. Though not all states have them, probably, California does and I've bought some of them like muc and mca. This way, you avoid state tax as well as Fed tax.

  • Tax-Free Income From Municipal-Bond CEFs: A Closer Look [View article]
    I see an immediate problem with EIV. According the cefconnect website, EIV has negative UNII...this means they will probably continue to drop the dividend which they have already started doing.

    http://bit.ly/1NVm4Df

    Avg. UNII Per Share:
    As of 3/31/2015 -$0.0447

    Also, the discount is only around -9%

    What do you think of VFL ? VFL has a discount of -13.13%, a yield of 6.14%,
    a unii of 0.1131, leverage of 30%???

    I just bought some more CBL before I saw your response. I am down 23% on this dog and thought I'd average down. However, after seeing your response, I sold all my CBL and replaced it with EPR. I saw your former article on EPR from February 16 entitled "This Uniquely Positioned Net Lease REIT Pays 5.9%, But Wait For Pullback". You talk about EPR. So, I assume we have a good enough pullback on EPR since it now yields a little over 7%..so I sold the CBL and bought some more EPR which I also owned previously.

    Hopefully you still think well of EPR.

  • Chowder #, CAGR To Trim 100+ Stocks To <70 And Evaluate For Repurchase [View article]
    "as this bull market shows signs of indecision"
    The people who say things like this...THE MORE I WILL BUY!!! Time to buy is when the market has crashed/crashing

    This is why I buy dividend stocks...to reinvest the dividends...and if prices go down..the yields go up..time to keep buying!!!

  • Selling Apple To Avoid Stagnation And Boost Income [View article]
    I sold my aapl last week at a 11% loss and replaced it with intc. Both have come down lately. I figure that selling my aapl gives me a tax write off and replacing it with intel gives me a higher yield..and both are good companies.

  • Preferred Stock Market Q2 2015: Investment Grade Preferred Stocks Available Below $25 [View article]
    You misread my post. I said..he hardly ever answers questions UNLESS it gives him a chance to advertise.

    For example..what is to be said about the fact that it appears that CUMULATIVE preferreds appear to no long be offered (investment grade)? This is a MAJOR criteria in the search approach he outlines in his books which I bought long ago. I've asked this question several times but he never seems to answer it. And I am talking preferred stock here, not exchange traded debt securities.

    I also like preferred stock. Though, the problem is..for me..that there apparently are no longer CUMULATIVE preferreds (investment grade) being issued.

  • CenturyLink Has Too Much Debt [View article]
    I used to work for Qwest, which later merged with CTL...when most of my office was laid off and replaced with Indians from India...green card holders...American corporations are no longer trustful places for Americans to make a career.The ceo at the time got a mega multi million dollar bonus after laying off around 30,000 workers over a 3 year period or so...as I recall back in the early 2000s
