  • Buy Linn Energy For The 7% Yield With No K-1 Hassle [View article]
    I had that happen with kmr when WF split it's brokerage division into a separate entity. I called and complained that I didn't want cash for fractional shares and now I get fractional shares each distribution, at least so far this year with all my distributions. Much easier record keeping.

  • Telecoms: The Good The Bad And The Ugly [View article]
    Since VOD is UK based I believe we avoid any extra taxes there. Are you referring to extra taxes the company pays because of its multinational footprint?

  • Retirement's 4% Rule: Why Mr. & Mrs. Income Don't Need It (Part 2) [View article]
    Great series David. Thanks so much all the work you put in on this. As an avid dividend investor I agree with the goal of just living off dividends. The problem I have not figured out yet, however, is how to deal with the required minimum distributions after age 70. Since a large part of most people's investments will be in 401k or similar accounts, after age 70 the government makes you incrementally liquidate the source of your dividends. At more advanced ages the percentage required each year is enormous, leaving one little choice but to live on liquidations rather than dividends. Any thoughts on how to deal with this problem?

  • 6 Oversold Global Giants Offering Major Dividends [View article]
    The yield on NGG is actually about 6% with a dividend of $2.92. These overstatement of dividends for foreign stocks that don't pay quarterly happen regularly when authors use Yahoo Finance and "have no positions in any stocks mentioned".
