  • A Dividend Growth Investor Looks At AAII's Stock Screens [View article]
    If a company claims that their picks return 400%+ then some sort of portfolio must have been built from them to be compared to the S&P.

    20% monthly turn over rate. At that point you are no longer dividend investing. You are swing trading for capital gains investing from a pool of dividend paying stocks.

  • Apple beats estimates, but guidance disappoints [View news story]
    For me the disappointing aspect is the cashflow.
    $22.7b generated. $7.7b spent on divs and repurchases.
    So they are now sitting on around $165 billion?

  • Why Bitcoin Matters [View article]
    A Bitcoin itself is very safe and not hackable.
    Your access to it and your control over it however is very vulnerable.

  • Icahn discloses fresh Apple purchases, makes renewed buyback call [View news story]
    They need $150 billion to do that? Nobody, not even Icahn, is calling for them to spend all of their money on repurchases. He is calling for $50b in buybacks and $100b left over for the company. If they needed more than that then they should be fired. Obviously given their track record they do not and thusly the money is sitting there wasted.

  • Top 3 Monthly Dividend Stocks For A Roth IRA [View article]
    COBeeMan: Yep. That reason right there is why I am little concerned about their future. They have positioned themselves very nicely for the inevitable rate hikes that will come.

  • Top 3 Monthly Dividend Stocks For A Roth IRA [View article]
    I don't make portfolio allocation decisions based solely on what taxes I pay. For me there are many other factors. Keep in mind that not everyone has a portfolio outside their IRA so it may be a moot point.
    Not taking advantage of something, "Wasting" it as MLPs in an IRA are called does not cause a detriment.

    What would be a waste is someone working on their IRA and passing on an 8% yielding MLP and going with a 2.5% yielding energy corporation because someone told them it was wrong.

    AAPL is in trouble if it needs $150 billion to be safe.

    Given the fact that Jobs called Buffett to ask him what to do with the money... no they do not have anything in mind with the cash.
    They are great at making products.
    They are great at making profits.
    They are terrible about redeploying those profits.

    They did not need $150 billion to make the iPod that started their growth. They certainly don't need it to make the next iProduct.
    Keep enough money for R&D
    Keep enough money for a realistic M&A.
    Give the rest to shareholders.

    There might be better BDCs out there but the focus of this article was monthly dividends. There aren't many monthly BDCs. MAIN is one that I know of.

    RLP: I've always disagreed with the "tax advantaged investments are wasted in an IRA."
    Is an MLP 100% tax advantaged? I don't understand the logic of passing on 100% tax advatnage of an ira because it already has a smaller tax advantage.
    Even if they are both 100% and an equal advantage... what is the harm of having it in both if the goal is retirement funding which is the point of an IRA.

  • Icahn discloses fresh Apple purchases, makes renewed buyback call [View news story]
    Agreed. One of the main reasons I am in IBM is because of their share buyback policy from the past several years.
    Buybacks don't kill a company.
    They are a benefit and reward from profits of a well run company.

    I'm long PSEC and that dividend chart always cracks me up when I see it. Its made to look like they gave a massive increase! Then when you look at what it measures its quite a different story.

    In regards to FNV, I'll wait to see revenue in 2013 and if their growth continues. Being a gold miner they'd have to have a ton of growth to counteract the drop in gold prices. Add in the fact they are highly leveraged as you mention... I just can't see that worth a 1% yield.

    VNR: I look forward to your article. I have researched them and wasn't fully convinced but was on the cusp. Instead I went with NDRO for monthly energy income. I would prefer an MLP to a land trust though.

  • Is BP Prudhoe Bay Fund Really A Good Short? [View article]
    I'll have to take a closer look at XOM. I'm long COP but I wasnt happy with their growth last year. Though I do like COP's yield...its not a reason by itself to hold it.

    Your linked article...
    wow I had forgotten about that one and I stand by the mentality of what I said back then...
    People either know about charge costs and they stay away from BPT or plan to exist before 2017 or they don't know about charge costs.
