  • Why It's Important To Own Predictable REIT Stocks [View article]
    @brokerbroker> Good question, but the answer is No. REIT's are not like CD's, Bonds, etc. They can be compared (somewhat) to Common Stocks with risks to price fluctuations, successful management, sector, market demand, interest rates, competition, etc. Great investments (normally) for additional portfolio diversification (10-15% IMHO). No guarantees, but what is ?

    You ignore the old adage > "BUY Low SELL High" (?). Worked for me with CTL, and still 'working'.

  • Dividend Contenders: 34 Increases Expected In The Next 11 Weeks [View article]
    @Michael > You must be a true idealist (or optimist). I don't believe there are any true average investors, "if" they had $1,000,000 (extra), would invest in a single stock even @ 10% divy. Too many 'eggs in one basket'. A great idea, but not very realistic, or smart. Life is too unpredictable and short, as well as 'the market'.

    Bret, any thoughts on HollyFrontier (HFC) ? Small in comparison, but refineries appear strategically located and well managed. Potential M&A target ?

  • 3 High Yielding, Undervalued Utilities, Part I: National Grid [View article]
    @Fundflow > Ref: "........NEE tank over the summer". Unfortunately, Utes are affected by the Acts of Nature (ie: hurricanes, storms, tornados, ice/wind, etc.). You may recall the destructive hurricane Sandy that was devastating to the majority of NEE service area. Due to the costs (loss) of destruction, reconstruction and loss of income/revenue, it is quite obvious that short term investors and institutions 'unloaded'. Additionally, Ute stock prices are also seasonal, to some extent, and always influenced by anticipation of interest increases. Normally, this presents a BUY opportunity.

    Ref: "....insights or words of wisdom on NEE ?" I firmly believe that Bob has done an exceptionable job in his Article. Perhaps your question would warrant a review of the Article.

  • The Europeanization Of U.S. Utilities, Part 2 [View article]
    @manya05 > Yes, 'energy storage' would definitely be the (hypothetical) solution, however, the current technology is grossly inadequate to meet any appreciable demand. A Hydro Electric Pumped Storage Facility is the closest technology, but is highly restricted by locale, economics and requires an alternate energy source during low demand periods.
