  • Is the Greek Crisis a Buying Opportunity or a Serious Risk to the Financial System? [View article]
    I find it interesting that now a small nation has the leverage to topple the European Union. The reaction by the people of Greece to their situation is much different than say the Irish. Is it too late to boot the Greeks out of the European Union?

  • Global X SuperDividend ETF Offers One Stop, High-Yield Dividend [View article]
    I liked the comment from poortorich regarding too many companies in a portfolio and do you really know what they are doing. I took a position in EWD as I wanted to diversify into foreign stocks and I was lacking the time necessary to purchase and study all the companies on my list so to make matters easier I chose a fund that did that for me. EWD does not own a large number of companies and it too has an expense ratio of .58 and has a low correlation to the S&P 500. I thought Sweden would be more stable than other European etf's plus I like their mystery writers. The performance of this ETF, well that is a mystery that will take some time to sort out.

  • The Life Cycle of the Dividend Investor [View article]
    Exceptional article on the life cycle of the dividend investor. Your comments regarding wealth accumulation stage and wealth deacumulation (distribution) stage hit all investors weather they are growth, dividend or whatever other categories exist. In my planning I do not consider them to be seperate phases but one continous process and therefore I find dividend stocks simpler in forecasting what my retirement income stream is going to be. Also, if I am lucky enough to live to an advanced age say 80-85 I can sell or give away my holdings and live off longevity insurance for my remaining years. I am long T, ED

  • Big Exxon Mobil Gulf Oil Discovery Should Boost Deep Water Drillers [View article]
    I enjoyed your article and the accompanying charts and analysis. I bought SDRL because of its maverick owner plus they have a generous attitude when it comes to revenue sharing with the stockholders.

  • Corporate Bonds vs. Dividend Stocks: Which Is Better for Income Investors? [View article]
    Another argument for Dividend Stocks taken from another perspective.
    Chuck Carnevale posted a similar article on dividend stocks
    Abbott versus US Treasuries and made a similar case. I like your list of stocks and I like the comparison of bond yields versus dividend yields. Your warning is well taken. I find that bond yields to maturity are harder to predict than a say what PG'S next dividend will be.

    With all the opportunities to do what this article suggests: Sleep at Night means to me what it says. As an average investor how do I find the time to read, study, develop a plan and execute etc.? I have to sleep sometime.
