  • 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.

  • United Technologies: Dividend Stock Analysis [View article]
    You really can't find anything bad about UTXs past. It's the future that gives me pause. With the budget cuts coming, defence spending will be a large target. UTX is a large target!!!!

    An investor that doesn't want to buy such a large list of ETFs, could cover most of the best in your long list by simply buying these five funds: BGY, BOE, FEN, PGP and VFIDX. Also, the cash dividends are excellent!!!

    Good list but should be expanded to unclude HCP, Inc (HCP) for a dividend yield of 5% and Teva Pharmaceuticlal Industries (TEVA) for leadership in the generic drug sector.

  • The Southern Company: Playing Defense With a Shot of Southern Comfort [View article]
    I,too, like Southern and the utilities. However, I found a fund that holds some SO along with other utilities with a similar profile and has a current yield of about 7.9%. It is the DNP Select Income Fund symbol (DNP). This is a very good fund for retirees....income and some growth.

  • How to Live Off Dividends in Retirement [View article]
    This is a very good article that has produced some excellent comments and ideas. I too am retired and need diversification along with better than average yield. After much research, I believe I have found the answer by buying only three funds instead of a score of individual companies. They cover both international and U.S. companys and pay yields of well over not wild! The symbols for these three are: BGY, BOE , and PCEF. Check out their portfolios and you will see the quality of their holdings.

  • BDCs Continue to Offer Opportunities for Dividend Investors [View article]
    I fully agree that in the BDC business retaining a little "skin" via warrants makes a lot of sense. From your list HTGC is the obvious pick of the litter.

  • 'Greying of America' Dividend Stocks Worth Holding Forever [View article]
    For a reasonable cash dividend yield of 5% and an excellent growth prospect, you can't beat the best in the senior care/medical sector. That company is HCP, Inc. Symbol (HCP).

  • Preferred Stocks Making a Comeback? One ETF to Consider [View article]
    Like one of the posters above, I too as a retiree am looking at the yield not the capital appreciation when I buy a preferred fund. I let the fund managers do what is best with the portfolio, they are in a position to follow the market. I am not. Now, here is my tip for the day for a very good preferred yielding over 8%......Flaherty & Crumrine Preferred Income symbol PFD.
