  • Accelerate Dividend Growth With Capital Gains [View article]
    Great article. This is also my strategy. For me, its entertaining. I am a DGI to the core, which, lets face it, is not all that exciting. I like "playing" with a dedicated amount, trying to grow it. I am always aware that it could backfire, but that's the price for the entertainment. I was actually watching COH. I was lucky enough to sell off CLSN at over $8 (bought under $2) before the crash, and have a decent position in FB at $21 that I am getting ready to liquidate. Putting those gains into *yawn* MSFT, AFL, and opened up a long term position in YUM. I'm not an options guy, so this is my form of fun. Its also education in a different market/company. I learned a lot about the great work that CLSN was trying to accomplish in their work on liver cancer. I wish that had turned out different.

    This has been on my Watch List for a while. Do most think this is a good opportunity/price to open a position? Close to 52 week low, will be for my long term dividend taxable account......

  • Aflac: Growth, Value, And A Strong Chart [View article]
    Just added this to my core portfolio a few weeks ago, and like you stated, will add more on dips. Was hoping for a bigger fiscal cliff dip, but we may get it in Feb. with what I assume will be the debt ceiling debacle. Thanks for the article, well done.

  • Use Vodafone To Build Dividend Income [View article]
    This has been on my watch list for a while now, thank you for the insightful article. How does the dividend work? I see it gets distributed every 6 months I believe? But not evenly? Any explanation on that for my own education would be helpful. Thank you!

  • Which Stock Is The Best For You From The Kinder Morgan Family? [View article]
    I agree. Some of this can be confusing. In a taxable yield oriented portfolio, would you begin a position in KMR, KMI, or KMP? Great article, and thank you in advance for any and all input!
