    Larry, great article and thanks for addressing the fiscal cliff. I've been concerned about it as I slowly put a great sum of money to work but you did put the upcoming events in perspective and I will continue taking it slowly.

    Chowder..thanks! yes..I did put my KMI in my tax deferred along with REITS and KMP in my taxable account. I've adopted a few of your mottos..now just trying to obey them as I'm trying to build these portfolios! Ok....not sure what C Corps are. I have seen references to them in past articles but can you give me some advice on them or refer me to an author? Thanks

    Bob, I'm new to DGI and this article really helped.I love the way you broke it down. The first chart on the growth of the dividends really helped me see the dividend value on $100,000. Your final selection of stocks have been on my radar, so I'm going in the right direction, but I am concerned with the end of year profit taking issues, fiscal cliff and a market correction. So, I am going very slowly to pull the trigger. Yes, I have 50% cash on the side for both an IRA and ROTH. I'm also putting together a taxable account. One question... many of my choices in the 3 accounts do overlap..but they are great choices and diversified within each account ..is this a bad idea? I'm trying to keep it simple..made a few mistakes chasing the high yielders. I also subscribe to FAST GRAPHS and Morningstar..big help!
    Also, I found you because of Bob Wells..so thanks Bob!
    And now I can't wait to read your next article!

    Bob, read 2 of your earlier articles and it brought up another concern. I've had feedback from others on MLP's but could you elaborate on them as far as holding them in a taxable account. I actually bought KMI for my non tax accounts and KMP for the taxable one. Chowder helped me get this far. I'm looking to include MMP and PAA.
    Thanks

  • Comparing Mortgage REITs: The Winners And The Risks - Part 2 [View article]
    Thanks. I really appreciate the help. Agree with whosez...you've helped so much with the research. I do check, read, recheck and
    research some more before I buy but it always seems I miss something. I was going to sell the above mREITS but I read an article, forgot the author's name, and he maintained a small position in them when they were out of favor. The above mREITS have good management who have been noted to maneuver through tough times. Looking to maintain some higher yields I don't want to let them go. Even if the yields fell to 8-9% they still are good. Am I wrong?

    PM101..I just started reading your articles and thanks for all the breakdown. I own AGNC and NLY in my ROTH and AGNC and AMTG in my IRA. My question is..despite what happens with rates...to a point.. aren't they a good investment for the long haul? I could just adjust my allocation. Also, what is the history of the dividend during their tough years?
    Thanks..

  • 3 Stocks Yielding More Than 5% That Recently Raised Their Dividends [View article]
    D4L, love your updates. I'm working on 3 portfolios: 2 retirements (IRA,ROTH) and 1 personal account. I've seen your dividend growth and high yield protfolio and I've been trying to make my wish list for the separate accounts. Any suggestions on how to set up the 2 retirements from the taxable account? And any suggestions on how to brace for the probable changes that might occur from the elections and fiscal cliff.
    thanks

    D4L..one more question..any suggestions on possible munis? A few that I've looked into at Morningstar are reported to be subject to the Alternative Minimum Tax. Any ideas? Thanks
