  • McDonald's: A Disappointing Dividend Increase [View article]
    "go mostly to the rich". And what is your definition of "the rich"? I am sure there are a great many MCD stockholders who do not consider themselves rich. This company continues to operate at the highest levels and provides an outstanding return for its shareholders, regardless of their income level.

    HJ: You left the exact same comment on another of Tim's recent articles. He responded in a very thorough manner, yet I did not see any rebuttal or explanation from you. Seems Tim has already answered you.

  • Dividend Growth Investing And The Reluctant Spouse [View article]
    Bob, great article. You describe my family situation exactly, and we have taken many of the same steps to make investing more understandable for the wife. We completed a personal document organizer which outlines the most important things and where to find them, who to contact, etc. Hopefully that is a good first step in the process.

    I follow Bret for his informed suggestions and opinions. While I may not act on them, I still enjoy his contributions. If you do not agree with him, you can always choose to read other articles by other contributors, or better yet, find another blog to read.

  • Top Dividend Stocks Favored By Goldman Sachs [View article]
    Denrilio: What happened to you is exactly what should happen when a company declares a dividend. On the ex-dividend date, the stock exchange will automatically reduce the share price of the stock paying the dividend, by the exact amount of the dividend.

    Assume a company's stock trades for $10/share, and it declares it will pay a $0.50 dividend. On the ex-dividend date, your stock will begin trading at $9.50, and you will receive your dividend on the stated payment date. Someone who buys that stock after the ex-dividend date will not be able to receive that $0.50 dividend. Why would they pay $10.00 for the stock if they will not receive the dividend? Generally, stocks quickly recover their share price back to pre-dividend levels, and the dividend is your to keep as a return on your investment.

    Be sure you understand what you are investing in before committing your hard earned money.

  • Merrily Going Off The Fiscal Cliff Together [View article]
    They also don't write flood insurance, since the only people who will buy it are the ones most likely to be flooded out. Not a good insurance proposition for the carriers.
