  • Fund Investing: On Broad vs. Narrow Portfolios [View article]
    I have recently bought PCEF and DNP. The first is a broad basket of high yield funds. The second is focused solely on utilities that also provide very good yields. I am retired and live off the dividends. Am I on the right track or should I make some changes?

  • ETF Pullback Choices: A Portfolio for Hard Times [View article]
    This may be a little off topic (not ETF), but I would like your opinion about using a combination of PCEF and DNP to give protection in hard times and provide good income.

  • 5 Oil and Gas Stocks Drilling for Profits [View article]
    Of your group, I chose RDS.a because of the dividend. CVX is also interesting but, I am worried about that Ecuador lawsuit. COP seems to be selling itself and has no meaningful exploration ideas. XON's dividend is pathetic, barely beats my bank. BP, like CVX, has legal issues.

  • Preserving Income: One Strategy for Protecting Profits and Dividend Yield [View article]
    For additional protection and secure income, I have picked-up some DNP. That fund holds utility equities and yields about 8%, paid monthly. Do you know of others like DNP that I should look at?

  • 11 Energy Companies Hedge Funds Are Buying Like Crazy [View article]
    I, too, am long CHK because of their very large national acreage holdings. In order to add a bit of quality, I bought a few shares in CLR for their Bakken acreage and bought EOG because they have very good acreage in both the Bakken and Eagle Ford. Are there others I should check-out?

    Isn't your AOD the same as Alpine's ADVDX fund......just not a CEF?

    Surely, DuPont (DD) belongs in the second grouping. 3%+ dividend and excellent growth in chemical consumer products and agriculture.

    If that is the case, then the Eaton Vance and Nuveen funds who regularly include r-o-c in their distributions are not doing very well are they?

  • 5 Global CEFs Paying Monthly Dividends [View article]
    Please elaborate on the "return-of-capital" in the IGD dividend. According to what I have read, that is merely an accounting term that is not necessarily bad. It may account for prior year tax carry forward losses, etc. a kind of catch-all term, not reflecting a deterioration in current performance of the fund.

  • Introduction to High-Yield, Small Cap, Oil and Gas MLPs, Plus 8 to Consider [View article]
    Worried about filing a K-1 for MLPs ? To avoid that hassel, simply buy KYN, KYE or FEN. They issue 1099s not a K-1.

    TEVA is not a speculative stock. They are the king of generics. That's where the growth is, now and for the future.

  • Dividend Stock Analysis: W.W. Grainger [View article]
    To make great coverage simple and collect an excellent dividend why not just buy Blackrock's BGY and BOE.

  • Continental Resources: Lots of Bakken Upside [View article]
    After doing much,much, reading about the oil/gas shale situation in the U.S., I conclude that an investor can cover most of the best prospects by buying a few shares in each of the following companies: CHK, CLR and EOG. They have the preponderance of acreage in the hot areas such as the Bakken and Eagle Ford. EOG in particular warrants attention but, it is a little pricy probably because they are well positioned in BOTH the Bakken and Eagle Ford.

  • 5 Energy Companies Set to Soar From the Texas Shale Boom [View article]
    Since I have very limited funds to invest in the future of oil shale, I decided to go with the BIG acreage holders in Eagle Ford and Bakken......EOG and CHK.Their management does "pump" the the stock a lot but, they do hold the drilling rights. You can't fake that.
