  • Retirement Strategy: My 'Buy The Dips Portfolio': When To Add, When To Sell, And My Ultimate Format [View article]
    Thank you cf for your reply. I bought MSFT for the current yield at that time and for the dividend growth history. It is the "big gorilla" in the software world with tremendous year in and year out cash flow. Dividends are incapable of lying (you get them or you don't) where financial statements can, and often do, lie. May we all have enough income from all sources to stay out of the pour house. Good luck everyone who comes to SA.

  • Retirement Strategy: My 'Buy The Dips Portfolio': When To Add, When To Sell, And My Ultimate Format [View article]
    Thank you Regarded for this article. The "core" portion of my portfolio is very similar to BTDP. I have one stock (MSFT) which has a cap gain of 61%. The cap gain dollar amount is equal to 13.02 yrs (at present divvy rate) of divvys. Any thoughts from anyone about selling or holding (part or whole) would be appreciated. Thank you, Joe T.

  • My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 6th Birthday Report [View article]
    Thank you for replying David. Yes, on all the stocks which dividends are reinvested I've found that YOC is greater than the current yield. If dividend rates are raised year in and year out, would there be anytime you would convert from reinvesting to accumulating cash? Was wondering if Buffet reinvests his KO holding or at some time down the road if he choose to take cash instead.

    Thank you for all your teaching. Hopefully I'm an adequate learner. After reading comments, I've come to a question. The difference between Cost Yield and Cur Val Yield. In my account, Altria's Cost Y is 8.93% (purchaced 6/1/11) and it's CurV Y is 4.62%. The difference can be explained by price change and reinvested dividends to buy additional shares. Continue to reinvest divvys or accumulate cash? Comments from anyone would be appreciated, thank you. Joe

    Same with me Martin; if my position wasn't a touch over 5% of total money, I would have added.

  • Dividend Investing Is Not As Risky As It Is Portrayed Out To Be [View article]
    David-I realize this may be a kindergarten question; when reinvesting dividends, where do these reinvested dividends come from. Does the company issue more shares like an open end mutual fund, or do they come from shares my brokerage has in it's house? Or, do they come from some other place. Thank you for replying. Joe

    I don't like paying the annual fee, but UTG has a lot of these companies. Yield on cost is 6.95% (divvys reinvested) after 10 months of ownership.
