  • Sell Windstream Corp. Before 2015 [View article]
    I agree rgperrin. How do you know? I owned American Tower (AMT) before it converted to a REIT and some articles were negative - advising to sell it. I ended up selling after the first dividend payout and its about doubled since.

    aren't limited partnership companies more complicated in an IRA? I have KMI in mine instead.

  • Are You Smart Enough To Buy Ballard Power? [View article]
    According to two sources, Yahoo and Scottrade, the stock at its highest was $132, not a decade ago but in the week of Mar 2, 2000. I thought I remembered it going to $150 too but I guess that's what faulty memory can do for you!

  • Apple Should Send Delusional Carl Icahn Packing [View article]
    I'm probably the last person to say that Icahn doesn't get why AAPL is under valued but here goes -
    In the days of Steve Job the company could do nothing wrong. Everything seemed to make the stock go up. We're not there anymore as investors are waiting for Apple to prove itself under Cook. More buy backs would just make the company look desperate to appear valuable.

  • Are REITs A Good Dividend Growth Idea? [View article]
    I have owned REITs in the past - most recently AMT but sold after it converted. I don't find their dividend that impressive. Then I acquired PCL - Plum Creek Timber - through a trust. They hadn't raised with their dividend in 6 years and I wanted to sell it all. Like you, I did sell some of it and will keep the rest. And they finally increased the dividend.

  • Apple Brings iBooks To Computers - Should Amazon Be Worried? [View article]
    I'm not sure Amazon is going to be hurt so much. Here's what I know from my own experience. I have children's books self published through the Amazon company Through that website was the opportunity to publish them as an ebook for Kindle through (Kindle Direct Publishing). During the process I could preview the book on iphone, ipad and kindle. Also available is essentially an "app" for my desktop called "kindle for PC" which I downloaded. (also available for download is "kindle for mac") Once the book was published and available on Amazon, I bought a copy and was asked at the time of purchase what device I wanted my book sent to.

    If Amazon doesn't make much money on Kindles why wouldn't they want to sell books for other devices?

    long AAPL

  • 4 REITs To Consider And 4 To Avoid [View article]
    I agree with Rupert on AMT. I owned it when it converted to a REIT and sold after the first divident. Looking at it again as a possible buy I have to agree that as a dividend payer, you can do better.
