  • My Dividend Growth Portfolio's 6th Birthday Report [View article]
    Six years? Has it really been six years! My, oh my. Thanks for all of your articles and for sharing your portfolio with us all over the last six years. I have been following a similar approach with my own dividend growth portfolio with one exception. When my positions in a stock are on the smaller side I drip the dividends for ease of reinvestment. Once the dividends get in the $40-50 range I accumulate them and invest in the best option when I have $1000 set aside. You suggested accumulating and reinvesting the dividends that way to me several years ago. It works well. Thank you.

    Although I am not yet ready to retire, I am continuing to build my positions with new investments each month as I can afford to invest the cash. I haven't done any return calculations in part because the new investment of funds complicates those calculations, but I do use the Chowder Rule, I think that's what he calls it, to measure my progress. So far, so very good.

    Thanks for a great update, David, and thank you for sharing your work and insights with us.

    Best regards,
    Chris

  • Retirees Please Don't Index, You Deserve Better Than Average [View article]
    Hi Chuck,

    Thanks for your work on this article. I think it is one of the best that has appeared on the Seeking Alpha site and clearly paints a picture while suggesting a strategy for dividend reinvestment for those who have a few more years before retirement, like me. With all the analysis we all tend to do your simple comparison is about as telling as it gets to support investment in good quality dividend paying stocks. It would be interesting, and perhaps profitable too, to apply the same analysis to the Contenders and see how that plays out.
    Unfortunately of the 8 Aristocrats that I check out on Fast Graphs, the ones that are near the top of the out perform list, all are shown as quite overvalued. Buying them at these valuations probably would produce a different return scenario. Any thoughts? I'm going to keep your fine article, put the stocks I don't already own on the wish list, and see what happens to these stocks in the next correction/downturn.
    Once again, thank you for a very insightful article.
    Best regards, Chris

  • Intel Income Investors Earn 11.32% Annual Yield Rate Now [View article]
    I'm not sure I wouldn't go the other way. That is, sell a cash covered put, say October 14, for a strike of 25. You'd get some money and keep the upside potential, but you also would have to want to own more of the stock at a price of $25 less the premium you were paid in selling the put. Me? I wouldn't mind owning a lot more Intel at a $24 and change price.

  • Bank Of America: Not Just A Dividend Growth Story, It's Undervalued [View article]
    Well maybe. I have banked with Bank of America personally and corporately for many years. These days I find it to be a trying experience. They have managed to turn around the old phrase, "the customer is always right" into something akin to the customer is never right and we won't let him directly talk to anyone that can make it right. Perhaps most big banks run their operations the same way as B of A, but that's hard for me to believe. After banking with Bank of America since 1937 we moved our accounts elsewhere out of complete frustration in dealing with the bank on trust account issues as well as successor issues. I am sure that my experience can not be an isolated one. about a year or so ago we also divested ourselves of our B of A stock which had been held for many years. So the stock may be undervalued, but in my opinion it is undervalued because there's not much value to be had.

  • Ford May Be Able To 'EcoBoost' Your Dividend Portfolio Right Now [View article]
    I've always shied away from auto manufacturers because of the super high plant and equipment costs, and demands for capital to stay competitive. However, with a 34% return on equity Ford certainly seems worth a look. Thank you for your insightful article.

  • Colgate-Palmolive: A Dividend Compounding Machine [View article]
    Thanks for the analysis on this fine company. I am long on CL and have been for some time. I watched it for years before I finally bought in during the recession. Otherwise it seemed like it was persistently over valued, so buying on the dips isn't an easy thing to do, nor is it easy to understand that a "dip" is really a dip when and if it occurs.
