  • Gilead Sciences: Approaching 52-Week Highs And Going Higher [View article]
    HUGE thanks to you, Bret, for pounding the table on GILD. I remember wishing I'd bot it in the $90s for my friend and aunt/uncle after initially picking up shares between $101-104 for them. However, I was able to double down for my aunt (an osteopath btw) @ $88, so (of course) she is pleased with how things are going.

    It's her largest holding and since she refuses to hold frackers or cig stocks, I'm glad she was able to p/u a chunk of it before the train left the station.

  • MLP Returns In Your IRA Or Tax Protected Account: Number 2 In The Series [View article]
    <As I understand it, dividends from REITs in excess of $1000 are taxed even within IRAs. Is my thinking correct on that?>

    No, I believe that's wrong. It sounds like you are thinking of UBTI from MLPs, which-if over $1000-CAN still be taxed if held in an IRA.

    @rlp2451: Care to jump in on this one, or are you talked out w/r/t to the UBTI issue in IRAs???

  • MLP Returns In Your IRA Or Tax Protected Account: Number 2 In The Series [View article]
    Thank you, southernsanta for some 'balanced reporting'.

    The 'Let's get back to Reaganomics' thing always leaves me scratching my head.

  • Altria: Back In The Saddle Again [View article]
    Thanks for the update and info, Bill. I bot MO in my wife's IRA at a 4% yield, and would love to reinvest some divs (and maybe put a bit of new $) into cheaper shares.

    Either way, I think a div raise is a certainty, so I'm looking fwd to higher divs to reinvest.

  • Markets Are Clearly Flashing Yellow [View article]
    Sacto has gone downhill in the last couple of decades imo. Too much traffic, air much worse, and property values expensive for what you get. Sure, there are some nice areas there still, but there's a lot more bad than there used to be.

    I'd be willing to chance living somewhere in WA before I'd ever consider going back to Sacto. I have some family up there, and they always remind me that it all depends on which side of the Cascades you live on w/r/t how wet it is.

  • Vanguard Natural Resources: Adding Value Or Just Collecting Rocks? [View article]
    Maybe, maybe not. It's in a small account and I can afford to see it disappear, should that occur. I'm willing to take the chance.

  • Recent Buy: Amgen [View article] won't hit $140 again-maybe high $140s...and would be a SCREAMING BUY if it did.

    However, that said...with summer upon us, and the market where it is, I would def agree that waiting til August would be prudent for just about everything at this point.

  • Rexford Industrial: Made In The Shade With This SoCal REIT [View article]
    Thank you for your insight into REXR. I have spent more time in SoCal (and Vta Cty) than I wish to recount, but I am well aware of how most of its residents will be living there until their deaths (how much they like living there), and occupancy rates for most everything will continue to be healthy (and mostly full).

    I typically don't invest for yield below 4%, but as I accrue more funds over time, I will be wanting to spread my funds over stocks whose yields are as close to a sure thing as possible. REXR looks to be one of those and I will keep on my watch list-thanks!!

  • Correction 2015? Be Prepared To 'Buy The Dip' [View article]
    ABBV will never see those prices-maybe $55 if we get a 10%+ correction. See how its pps holds up when we have a down day?? That's the sign of stock that longs don't want to sell.

    There is a strong contingent of investors who feel Humira (even after the patent expires) will bring big $ much longer than most think it will.
