  • Retirement Strategy: The Oil Crash Could Be A Dividend Growth Investor's Best Friend Of The Decade [View article]
    Micrite gives out some good info. I have been in and around the O&G since the late 1950's. I would never say I can predict where the price of oil or gas will be in 6 months, 2 years or 10 years. I may guess at it but that is what it is "a guess".
    The thing a smart producer in the oil patch will do is be prepared for what may come. Anything short of that and you may be a former producer!!!!!

    Wish all successful investing.

  • Milk and egg prices track in opposite directions [View news story]
    Milk down possibly because of lower feed prices and the quantity of milk! I don't know about the volume of milk produces versus consumed but feedstock for cattle feed is down quite a lot compared to previous years.

    "They teach you how to count your money--"

    Based on most check out clerks today, if the computer is down they have a tough time calculating change to give back to a customer!!!!!!!!!!!

    This is sad but true.

    I commend you for trying to help your fellow workers concerning your companies 401K. When I was employed I tried to do the same thing.

    Wish you successful investing.

  • Retirement Strategy: Millennials Have Issues, But They Also Have Time, Lots Of Time [View article]
    Immort,

    Joni is correct. Bob Wells is a big proponent (as am I) of a written plan. Bob's plan is for an all ready retired individual. Even so, the form and method Bob used should serve as a pattern for you in developing a plan specific for your needs.

    Take your time in developing a plan and remember, follow it but change it at any point when you need to due to life or goal changes.

    Good luck and wish you successful investing.

    Wish you successful investing.

  • A Real Dividend Growth Machine: Q2 2015 Review [View article]
    DGM,

    I like to follow your progress. Keep updating.

    What is your minimum dividend return % in which you will invest? I typically do not go below 3% but may drop down to 2.8%.

    Wish you successful investing.

  • A Real Dividend Growth Machine: Q2 2015 Review [View article]
    Steve Kelley,

    Consider O in a taxable versus tax protected account. I believe REIT's are more appropriate for tax protected accounts due to some of their return taxed as general income in taxable accounts. This is not true of all REITs. Review the REIT website for this info.

    Sorry if you were already aware of this, but I could not tell whether your portfolio was taxable or tax protected.

    Wish you successful investing.

  • So, You'll Switch To Dividend Growth Investing After You Have Your Millions, Eh? [View article]

  • So, You'll Switch To Dividend Growth Investing After You Have Your Millions, Eh? [View article]
    Christinebitg,

    I do much the same. I review Mr. Fish's CCC list for the past 10 years, project a dividend growth rate, then my spreadsheet calculates the dividend % for the next 10 years based on present stock price and dividend. I also show the sum for the next 5 years and 10 years. All are expressed in %'s so I can compare one stock to another.

    Certainly not the only metric I use, but I have found it to be useful.

    Wish you successful investing.

  • Did The Oklahoma Supreme Court Just Kill The Oil And Gas Industry? [View article]
    Clark,

    Over the years I have dealt with media reporters. I have found most (not all) of them have knowledge on many subjects a mile wide but only a fraction of an inch deep. Sorry if I have offended anyone.

  • Balancing The Yield And The Dividend Growth Rate [View article]
    r55,
    I do a similar spreadsheet. I estimate the yearly dividend growth and using the present dividend yield (in %) calculate it for the next 10 years by year. I also added the 5 year sum and the 10 year sum. I do all in %'s so I can compare the return on each dollar invested. This is done on a list of stocks I have pre-selected
    based on various factors.

    Wish you successful investing.

  • My Share Price Has Gone Down - Should I Buy, Hold, Or Sell? [View instapost]
    Ckent323,
    I agree with your analysis. Until the world economy starts back to the upside, TGH's stock price will flounder around(my technical term?). Certainly hope the dividend cut will not happen but it may.

    Wish you successful investing.
