  • What A CSX - Canadian Pacific Merger Would Look Like, And Why It Didn't Happen [View article]
    For what it's worth, I sold all of my CSX this afternoon at $32.3661. Almost 8% up in one day is pretty handsome. I will redeploy to another DG stock.

  • Lockheed Martin Corp. Priced To Buy [View article]
    In FAST graph it appears that LMT is just slightly above Fair Value. 200dma is 156.83 at the close on Monday. It would be nice to pick up some LMT at that price, but "lotsa luck". LMT has been going up since January 2013 and hasn't had a significant drop in price. Happy investing.

  • Does Diversification Lead To Lower Quality Of Investments In Dividend Portfolios? [View article]
    Invest: I also use ETF's and CEF's for MLP's and utilities. I also use HYG for cash in Fidelity as a ready cache for that dip I'm waiting for. I use HYG for the cash that I have to set aside to prepare for Estimated Taxes and the April 15th tax day! I set my IRA to remove RMD's in December to get the max out of the IRA tax advantage and want to hold the cash in HYG while I Turbo Tax. I have 70 stock and included are a few ETF's: KYN, HYG, UTG.
    Regards, Dennis

  • Does Diversification Lead To Lower Quality Of Investments In Dividend Portfolios? [View article]
    Rose: Agree with you. I too have about 70 stocks, only one in the red. If you index you have to agree to the lower quality stocks as well as the better ones. I like to collect the dividends and that is a good watch on the stocks but with FAST graphs, I can see the trends of stock, the quality, etc. I use the FAST a lot and the Fidelity research and of course, SA. Every time I see a new stock symbol on SA, I research the stock to see if it belongs in my portfolio. Regards, Dennis

  • Can Lockheed Martin Sustain Its Dividend? [View article]
    The growing uncertainty of Russian ambitions should have been a factor in this analysis. For all the cut back, the Russians and China haven't been cutting. They are increasing their military worldwide. And then there is North Korea and of course the middle east. The western countries cut back and this give rise to the advisories of the western countries. Peace is through strength. Peace does not come via Chamberlain's capitulation theory.
    I firmly believe that the defense industries will struggle along until the western countries are challenged and then there will be frantic buying of any and all defensive and offensive weapons.

  • Blue Light Specials In The Market: Materials [View article]
    Eric: I buy what you're saying about the dividend history. But this sector is probably not a true buy and hold sector. If one hold many stocks ( I hold about 70) then one risky subject isn't much of a risk with a good dividend payer. I hope I never need to sell TIS and it becomes a IP / KO / KMB stock but I will continue to monitor with my eyes wide open.

    Something I noticed about your sock selections that I like. You see and evaluate stock like an engineer. It's got to do something. It's got to make something. It's got to produce something. I like that.

  • Blue Light Specials In The Market: Materials [View article]
    Eric: Thanks for your work. You've got a reader here. I agree with you on finding good matl. sector stocks. I found (and have held since April 2013) TIS. Orchid Paper. It pays a 4.62% dividend yield and has been increasing. It also increased by 14% in the past year. It is in the business of making paper products for store brands (Walmart, HEB, etal ). It is located in Oklahoma.

    Agree MCC is better priced and MACD is looking good for a purchase soon. I'm thinking of a small position in GBDC and wait for better timing. Thanks. Dennis

  • My DGI Plan: How I Keep Investing Simple [View article]
    KISS. That's my kind of investing. S.A., FAST Graphs, David Fish, Chowder et. al. does the work. I read. Then I make my evaluations. I don't go far from these DD (due diligence) guru's.

    Thanks for saying you don't find a problem with 100 stocks. I don't know who wrote this but by having a large number of stocks, you don't have to worry too much about diversification. That's a KISS point, too.

    I fully retired at 52 and now I'm 70 and enjoying investing as much as ever. My net worth increased three fold in that period of time. I have not been a die hard DGI this entire time. I tried them all (I think) but looking back I have always liked dividends and mostly bought the dividend payers. I thank the day I found Seeking Alpha and was thinking ETF's at the time. But DGI fit my style better.

    KISS is the way to go. BTW. I learned the KISS from my Navy Recruiting school in the 60's and it meant Keep It Simple, Stupid but it referred to giving speeches. I continue to find more uses for KISS because it fits me so well, especially the last two words. But what do I care? I'm sitting here in comfort and keeping it simple.

    Agreed with you. LMT is scary but it just goes up and the dividend is super. Defense industry is going to do just fine.
