  • AT&T: A Potentially Groundbreaking Development  [View article]
    Got them both, they seem to be some of the only up-trending stocks
    for the last several days.
    But I don't own these two powerhouse communication stocks for
    the stock price, but for the nice, somewhat dependable, dividends
    they payout to their stockholders.
    It is nice to see them at the higher end of their range, while the general
    market stocks are getting 'trimmed'.

  • Top Dow Dividend Stock Is Outperforming The Market, Has Strong Growth, Estimates Rising  [View article]
    VZ, longest stock in my portfolio, recently initiated starter in T.
    LOVE those dividends, and stock price growth.
    If I had a window of things to come, it would have been prudent
    to put it all on the line with VZ, in the those years past.
    BUT I don't, so diversity still must rule.

  • A Recession-Ready REIT Portfolio  [View article]
    Great comparisons made in this article.
    It was well thought out, and executed by you Brad.
    I thought that you summed up, quite to the point, that
    it is best to find reits that are more liquid than the average,
    and of course, diversify.

    It's all about that nice monthly dividend.
    Truly, a monthly coupon clipping stock for the retirement portfolio.
    AND its a bargain.

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Time To Buy The Dip?  [View article]
    Nervous time for the markets.
    Here's where an investors risk tolerance is being tested.
    Those that saw this coming have put aside a portion of their portfolio,
    into cash.
    Those that have stayed the course, are worried and maybe selling at a significant
    But others, possibly, more long time experienced investors are just patiently watching
    the fundamentals of their investments and the fundamentals of the economy,
    before striking out.
    Only the passing of time will show the future.
    Several stocks are already showing good opportunity for the buyer.
    The QQQ is close to a great add or entry point.
    Do your own due diligence; only you can decide your risk tolerance.

  • STAG Industrial: High Dividend, High Risk  [View article]
    Why is it necessary to use such a negative appearing title for this article?
    Is this just a way to suck in attention?
    The article spells out more good news then bad.

    You don't have to scare people, to get their attention.
    Please consider this next time.

    The vast majority of readers of Seeking Alpha articles are serious investors,
    who will read an article, without a catchy headline, to pull them in.

  • Will Verizon Cut Its Dividend?  [View article]
    I'll take a nice fat dividend, any day, over stock price growth.
    That, being said, the price growth that occurred from 29-55 was
    great, and I took advantage, by selling shares while they were in
    the low 50's.
    Later when the pullback drove down the price into the low 40's,
    I filled in the position.
    While that market-timing was successful, it is not how I like to trade.
    It feels more comfortable, to me, that the stock price is somewhat
    more range bound.
    This way I know what yield to expect each quarter and there is less
    risky trading of the stock.

  • Care Capital Properties: Is Its 7.5% Yield Worth It?  [View article]
    The spun off shares I received of CCP have lost some 5 bucks of trade value.
    Considering this is a new stock and interest rates are slowly rising, this is
    a somewhat higher risk than I would take on if I didn't already own the
    starting position.
    I will take the risk, but not add for a while.
    Later when CCP's direction is clearer, I will make a buy, sell or continue to
    hold on the position.
    In the meantime I'll collect that nice .57 a quarter.
    Thank you Casey, for your analysis.

    Well, I already have CCP in place, since the split-off from VTR.
    OHI has already had some problems with overcharges.
    I'm going to stay the course and watch the progress of the pure play
    SNF that CCP has going.
    At any rate if I add OHI it would throw the balance of my small portfolio
    off, since VTR is in there and if its value keeps going up past 60 I'll be
    I continue to watch OHI progress and compare it to the field.
    Thank you for the thorough insight.

  • AT&T: A Smaller Than Expected Dividend Increase  [View article]
    It was expected, but a 2 or even 3 cent increase would create some more
    excitement for AT&T stock, and probably pump-up the stock price.
    The company is doing just fine, and its acquisition of Direct TV is a giagantic
    All that said, I'm happy with .48 a quarter @ the current stock price range.

  • With AT&T's Dividend Increase On The Way, Here's What Investors Could Receive  [View article]
    Increasing the dividend to .50 would probably garner even more interest
    in the stock, resulting in accelerated stock price growth, that closes the
    gap between T and VZ.

  • Dump KMI And Get A 8% Yield And Dividend Growth With This 5-Fund Portfolio  [View article]
    Of course there are REITs in many different classifications.
    That's why DLR is a standout, it represents an exclusive group of
    REITs in the data storage arena.

    Then again STWD is a REIT that caters to commercial mortgage
    properties and earns a 9+% dividend.
    The two REITs couldn't be more different in the arena they support.

    I can keep giving examples, but buying individual stocks to fill a portfolio
    is potentially much cheaper than buying a ready made portfolio when buying
    a ETF or the like.

    Why buy the fund if it includes individual equities, you would not own?
