  • 4 Things You Must Know About Buying Stocks Now [View article]
    Barbara:

    If your husband wants a big dividend, tell him to buy MAIN. +6% div, with 1 or 2 add'l special divs throughout the year.

    AT&T pays over 5% still, and may see more price appreciation in the near future due to recent acquisitions.

    BP and Shell are around 6% yield, so there are 2 more ideas. Some REITs don't look too bad after correcting recently. Many of them pay 5-8% annually.

    Good luck!

  • Enterprise Products Partners: A High Quality Midstream Now On Sale [View article]
    Excellent point, Elliot. I doubled my uncle's holdings @ $29.62 yesterday, as EPD @ a 5% yield and excellent distribution coverage make the opp too good to pass up imo.

    I would look for it to come down to the $112-113 range, and that will be the time to buy.

    Why not just put $10-30k into CLMT and net 10% in 12 months??

    Skip the commissions and tax issues (unless in IRA?) and simply hold??

  • MLP Strategy Guide [View article]
    Doubled down on EPD for my uncle today @$29.62. It will fall further, but they are the best run MLP out there, and their coverage ratio is top notch. Plus, DRIPping the distributions for as long as it languishes down here.

  • My Second Half Predictions - Part I [View article]
    It does depend on how it's looked at-you're right. If Carter had better GDP, it's stands to reason that the % of debt would have been different.

    Plus Bret, wouldnt you say that baby boomers didnt enter the work force in the same way in the late 70s as they did in the 80s?? Should RR's policies get credit for higher tax receipts in the 80?? Wd he have been just as effective had he come into office in '76??

    LMAO...that's what I was thinking too-thank you, Office Rat.

    < an administration addicted to lying and living in a fantasyland. The country is deteriorating at an accelerated rate due to mismanagement by its leadership. >

    One side or the other has been singing this song about the other side since the Nixon Adm. Bush, Clinton, RR, et al...they've all been doing that. You whine like the Obama Adm invented it. And you complained about my posts?!?? Sheesh.

    I agree with cbroekhuijse@gmail.com.

    Different time, interest rate situation different, etc. Let's not forget RR ran up the debt to win the Cold War either.

    A 'no dividend increase' would send shares south in a hurry.
