  • Guggenheim's ABCS Gives Us A-B-C, But No Y [View article]
    I, too, am waiting for a yield to be posted. I like the mix of holdings but, I am retired and need the dividend income. If the distribution is about 6%, I will probably try that ETF.

  • Health Care REIT, Inc.: It's Nothing but Smoke and Mirrors [View article]
    I think you make a good case for shorting this stock. You should have gone a little further and offered an alternative that pays a safe 5% dividend. My choice would be HCP,Inc (HCP). They give excellent coverage of the medical/healthcare sector.

  • Why REITs May Be the Best Long-Term Investment [View article]
    Instead of a shotgun approach (VNQ), try going for a rifle shot at HCP,Inc. (HCP) with a nice 5% dividend.

    An interesting list of horses for the run ahead. I'll place my bet on the oil/gas explorer EOG Resources. They have the acreage where it counts in the Eagle Ford and Bakken shale plays.

  • Why Playing With Ex-Dividend Dates Isn't Worth It [View article]
    There are funds that specialize in the "dividend capture" strategy for income enhancement. I don't remember the stock symbols but, I think they are mainly in the closed end fund sector. They will take the hassel out of trying to keep up with the dividend dates.

  • Managing Trading Costs While Applying the Triple-Play Income Strategy [View article]
    I am retired and have an IRA account with Vanguard. They only charge a commission of $2 per trade. I trade ETFs, CEFs, and individual stocks about 3 or 4 times a month, so my trading cost per year is under $100.
