  • A Strategic High-Yield Discussion And Portfolio Planner [View article]
    I just bought some BWG. This is a closed end fund of global income securities.
    What do I like about it? Plenty.
    1. It currently trades at a discount of -13.8% !!!
    2. Yield is 9% paid monthly !!!
    3. leverage is less than 24%
    4. It has recently been RAISING its payout consistently!!!
    5. According to cefconnect.com, its UNII is over 0.62..which tells me its payout is well covered!!!

    What's not to like?

    Any comments?

  • Best S&P 500 Stocks According To Greenblatt Principles: A Look At AFLAC [View article]
    Why not..inductive 'reasoning' is being used to pick this stock in the first place. Again..the trend with this stock is DECLINING dividend growth

  • Best S&P 500 Stocks According To Greenblatt Principles: A Look At AFLAC [View article]
    Hmmm...the dividend growth for AFLAC, as you present it, troubles me. You say that was 7.6% for past 3 yrs, 8.1% over the past 10 years...AND 5.4% in the current year??? Doesn't this indicate a steady and continuous decline in dividend growth %?...so where is it heading..lower and lower...and with a dividend yield of only 2.69%? Definitely not good for retired folk like me..and declining growth for everyone else.

  • Don't Panic, Linn Energy Could Actually Profit From Falling Oil Prices And A Sector Downturn [View article]
    I sold this PIG (both line and lnco) the other day for a 70% capital loss. I also dumped vnr for a huge loss. These have been the worst pigs I ever poked (bought).

  • Update: Linn Energy's Distribution Cut Hurts, But Its New 11% Yield Is Nothing To Whine About [View article]
    I worked at AT&T for almost 30 years. AT&T got wiped out long ago as a result of our government breaking them up back in 1983 , as I recall. I was there when it happened and it went down slowly (especially for the workers) ever since.Used to be a great company to work for..emphasis on 'used to be'.
