  • Retirement Strategy: Filling A Gap With An Overlooked Dividend Aristocrat [View article]
    Just curious GeorgeH, if you would be willing to share some of your monthly payers. I hold a few - O, PBA, PGX, MAIN - but am always interested to know of others that I might want to consider. I know there are quite a few out there, I'm always looking. Thanks. RSR

  • GE to sell appliance business to Electrolux for $3.3B [View news story]
    Too bad if Philips takes over the lighting component. My experience with Philips lighting products is the quality is atrocious, nowhere near the life expectancy of GE or Sylvania products. Might as well buy Feit Electric products and replace them ever month or two. Just awful. RSR

  • Income Investors: It's Only A Matter Of Time [View article]
    turk -- I absolutely understand your thinking and concur that it is nice to know you can count on and plan for a certain amount of dividend income every month. But if your dividend payments are that uneven month-to-month, try setting up your own 'dividend' payment for the lower income months. Using your simplified example, in your higher income ($1200) months, as your dividend payments come in, set aside ~$200 in a savings account for example. Then in your next lower income ($800) month, pay yourself a 'dividend' by transferring what you need to your spending account. Requires a little discipline, identify your lowest and highest income months and determine how much you need to set aside to balance things out, and start your own dividend stream. And if you work it right, you might even be able to start building a little emergency fund in the savings account. RSR

    turk -- Do you really need monthly payers to manage your monthly bill payments? I have several monthly paying stocks in my accounts, and they are nice to count on. But some quarterly payers pay in months 1, 4, 7, and 10; some pay in months 2, 5, 8, and 11; and some pay in months 3, 6, 9, and 12. You still have dividend income every month, though not necessarily in equal amounts. Most of my stocks, and stocks in general, pay dividends quarterly. With some forethought, planning, budget-mindedness and common sense, you can surely work your monthly bill payments around your monthly income from quarterly dividend payments. No need to get involved with CEFs and ETFs.

    Not trying to belittle your question turk. It is certainly a legitimate idea. But with a diverse enough portfolio of quarterly paying stocks, with perhaps a few monthly payers sprinkled in, and some planning, you can establish a reliable and satisfactory monthly income stream to meet your needs. Good luck. RSR

    Fr33dom... -- A good source of information and ideas for building a dividend growth portfolio is Seeking Alpha author Regarded Solutions. Look up some of his recent articles. He has several demonstration portfolios chock full of ideas for what you are trying to do for your sons. His current Buy the Dips Portfolio (BTDP) is a starter portfolio built around blue chip dividend growers like JNJ, PG, KO, VZ, CVX, etc. A few months ago he started a series of articles comparing the growth and income of the BTDP with a comparable portfolio composed of several ETFs. Very interesting and informative stuff. He also has a blog and a subscription service here he reports on his portfolios and starter ideas. RSR

    I own some PGH, but I am certainly not hoping for oil to go to $200/barrel. I still need to be able to afford gas.

  • 6 Stocks Providing A Growing Income With Increased Dividends [View article]
    D4L -- I believe rlp is correct. Also, the TCAP payment date is Sept. 24. Sept. 10 is the record date, and Sept. 8 is the ex-div date. In your articles on dividend increases, providing the ex-div date would be much more beneficial than the record date, since it usually falls a few days before the record date and is more critical to know. Thanks. RSR

    Mike: Is it possible your vehicle is 'flex fuel' and can also run on weed clippings? I have plenty of those, especially buckhorn and dandelion. If so I'll be in the green! RSR

  • Mondelez: Expected Top-Line Growth And Margin Expansion Highlights Of Bullish Thesis [View article]
    This is one overly optimistic puff piece, chocked full of "I believe" and "portend well" statements. Very little to factually support this puffery, just a lot of optimistic forecasts. The fact is MDLZ is struggling, as evidenced by the oft cited 2Q14 results. There is nothing to suggest it's likely to get much better any time soon. MDLZ does not look good to me. RSR

    Agree with dizzy7. I find these regular updates useful. D4L does this on a regular basis. Page views comment was silly or from someone who doesn't follow D4L regularly. RSR

    OK, thanks 50. Just looking for some clarification. No need to be snarky about it. Maybe you're more useful collecting trash on the beach. RSR

    A child (pre-teen) is less likely to understand an analogy than a reasonably intelligent adult. Like satire and sarcasm, it requires a more advanced level of language usage to be effective. And some adults never get there. RSR
