  • AT&T Offers A 5.25% Dividend Yield And Consistent Share Buybacks [View article]
    I am with Joe Gomer in holding all three (vz,t,vod) . As a retired old frog of 82, I want the dividend safety provided. Any growth at all is just a plus.

  • My Biggest Fear As A Bond Investor [View article]
    A word to the wise. Stay with your bond investments. There will be a lot of time to retreat when the time comes.....probably 2 or 3 years hence.

  • Outlook For Equities: Time To Take The Foot Off The Accelerator [View article]
    I agree. The Bush tax cuts were ill advised. Spending money on a war that was discretionary and not providing for it's cost smacks of stupidity. Worse, now we are expected to extend this economic nonsense by the Tea Party's control of Congress.

    I am retired, so the only one on your list that interests me for immediate meaningful income is CTL. If you are young and still working, buy the whole list.

  • High Dividend Stocks: Rising Oil Prices Will Increase Dividends [View article]
    I hold Sabine (SBR) in my IRA account and have never had a tax problem. The distributions are treated the same as ordinary dividends received from any stock. There may be tax issues with some royalty trusts but, not with the SBR type trust.

  • GE set to prevail in its bid for Alstom, but some see a Pyrrhic victory [View news story]
    A pact with France is asking for trouble. I commented about this a week or so ago and my comment was deleted by SA. Apparently, I insulted the French. I stand by my comment.

  • 2 Dividend Stocks To Buy, 2 To Avoid, And 1 To Sell For Retirees [View article]
    Never sell JNJ unless they stop selling Band Aids and Tylenol. They are not an APPLE, but they will survive the worst of times and 100 shares will get you a check for $61 every three months this year and more next year.

  • Building An Intelligent REIT Portfolio With 'Wide Moat' Revenue Streams [View article]
    You present a lot of data to mull over here. My cursory review leads me to a company like Omega Healthcare (OHI). It has dividend growth and demographics pushing it forward.

  • Banco Santander: Clean Bill Of Health Spells Opportunity [View article]
    For those with a "buy low" affinity, you can't find a better canditate than Banco Santander (SAN). This is no mom and pop pawn shop.

  • Should You Invest in Chile? [View article]
    This article is right on! As far as investing in BCH or SQM directly, I believe the best course is to go with the managed Aberdeen Chile Fund (CH). That fund also delivers a very good dividend.

  • A Sampling of Investment Advisors Seeking Dividend Growth for Your Retirement Portfolio [View article]
    A fairly recent Seeking Alpha article made a convincing argument that buying currently high dividend stocks beats the dividend growth variety. A "bird in the hand" position that makes a lot of sense to me.

  • Cheniere Energy Poised To Correct: Gross Overvaluation In Relation To Negative Cash Flows [View article]
    I like Kinder Morgan as an ongoing and growing company. However, the article about Cheniere is very misleading. It is still a very young enterprise that is well placed for the future of our abundance of NGLs.
