  • Realty Income Corp. Proves Monthly Dividends Amplify Returns [View article]
    @<OW1> Agree with you but have one exception to your REIT (HCP). Too much reliance on the major tenant (HCR Manor Care).

  • Gilead Sciences: Serious Cash Means An Acquisition Could Be Coming Soon [View article]
    Stock prices are, however, reflective of emotional reactions (traders, investors and institutions) even when a potential M&A occurs and the 'price' is released.

  • Entergy: Under-Appreciated Utility With Yield And Growth Potential [View article]
    1) What is your estimated pay-back period (in years) at the current price of the electric energy (Kwh) provided in your region ? 2) Are you allowed to sell excess power to your local utility, and at what rate ? 3) What is your back-up plan when the sun doesn't shine (@ nights, multiple cloudy/rainy days) ? Who provides your electrical equipment maintenance (inverters, switches, batteries, solar panels, etc) ? Just asking. I've done the calculations in my area (North Florida), and the net pay-back period is about 22 years at my most moderate average annual demand.

    @ <oilrich> Yes, I'll add a truck load, IF it retreats to the 32-32.50 level, but in the mean-time I'm not holding my breath.
    Long & longer T.

    @HW > Both DUK and ETR are excellent LT investments with dependable returns (dividends). I would NOT sell DUK to buy ETR at this point. DUK has had some 'setbacks' lately (Dan River ash spill, Wilmington ground water issue) which is being reflected in their lower stock price. I personally have been invested in both for many years (30+), as well as SO, with dividend re-investments. Some of the best LT investments a person can make IMO.

  • CBI sinks as Scana cites rising cost, construction delays on new reactors [View news story]
    @Dukebailey> Thanks for your clarification. I was not aware that the NRC had 'mandated' any actual engineering design change(s) that has resulted in the delays and additional costs. Since there are 10+ years from the initial concept (load forecasting) of a new nuclear facility until the commercial operation, numerous obstacles/changes will occur, some of which were anticipated when original costs and schedules were 'estimated' by all parties. Let the litigations, mediations and escalations begin.

  • CBI sinks as Scana cites rising cost, construction delays on new reactors [View news story]
    @Dukebailey>"Airplane Shield" (even before 9/11), terrorist attacks as well as 'acts of nature' (tornadoes, hurricanes, floods, earthquakes) and redundant systems have always been in the initial design criteria for US Nuclear Facilities. Why would a 'utility' change the design requirements ? Perhaps you intended to say a NRC's imposed required safety design change(s), if so, I am not aware of any such recent NRC ruling.

    Having been directly involved with design changes at a Nuclear Facility under construction, as the result of the Three Mile Island Nuclear Facility (TMI#2) 'accident' in 1979 (GPU), I am aware of the necessity of these delays. Could you expand on your meaning of "customer changes" ?

  • Nasdaq Dividend Achievers: Southern Company [View article]
    Are the delay(s) and resulting cost over-runs the fault, or expense, of SO ? Are not the Construction Contractor (CBI) and the Engineering/Design/Vendor (Westinghouse) financially responsible ? The "costs overruns" attributable to SO should only be for the 'loss' of potential generating capacity due to the extended completion schedule(s). This is the 'Norm' for utilities to insure adherence to the contract(s)' timely delivery(s) to meet the expected demand of electricity.
