    HA HA HAH! You speaketh the truth Sir Wyatt! Don't lie to the American people and tell them we are "at war" to help the innocent civilians being slaughtered, tell them the truth...it is for the oil!

  • Why You Should Hold Your Dividend Stocks in Tax-Sheltered Accounts [View article]
    Hi everyone, I don't want to change the subject, but on a purely speculative note, should one wait until QE2 has "ended" and the face value of stocks may drop off a bit to enter a position? Or would it be most beneficial for one to move ahead with a position currently?
    I wanted to use the max allowable roth contribution for 2011 in one lump sum(3 kids can drain $$$ quickly) while we still have it! :) But I also want the most bang for the buck! I'm trying to think like a seasoned investor, but unfortunately...I need more seasoning. Maybe some Cajun creole would kick it up enough! TIA

    Robert, Thank you!!! This is a wonderful article. I have a ROTH IRA managed by Fidelity. I wanted to start a d-g strategy and manage the account myself, so I have recently opened another ROTH IRA, but before doing so, I did ask the question on a few different dividend threads about what type of account would best serve. People posted back with helpful info, but had your article been out then, the choice would have been crystal clear from the beginning. And as long as I don't exceed the 5K annual limit, I should be good! Thanks again for the informative read :)

    I just wanted to share, I am so happy I found SA, but more specifically you dividend guys(and gals). Please keep up the great and useful articles and posts. It also makes me wish my Dad was more investment savvy so that he could have passed the skill down to me. Big hugs to David! I've found my investing family!

  • Road Map for Managing a Dividend Growth Portfolio [View article]
    In regard to online brokers, there are several available from ETrade or ShareBuilder to OptionsHouse or TradeKing, etc. etc. I have been comparing the pros/cons of many, and there are some that seem far better than others, but it all comes down to their intended purpose. For the d-g strategy investor, wouldn't it make the most sense to choose one that provided free dividend reinvestment? Does anyone have a favorite online broker? I read somewhere surfgeezer made a mention of TD Ameritrade.

  • NHK reports radiation levels of 0.17 millisieverts/hour have been detected outside of the 20km evacuation zone from the Fukushima plant. Six hours of exposure to this level would be the same as the maximum safe exposure for 1 year.  [View news story]
    At 9:35am "absolutely no issue" outside of the imposed 20 km zone, 10:15am they're singing a different tune.

    Glad to see that I'm not the only one with loading/viewing problems and glad it was reported! Of course, at this point, I don't think that any amount of waiting would prompt me to discontinue this read.
    I wonder if the fact that there are currently 343 posts as anything to do with it? ;)

    I feel like this may be a dumb question, but I'm going to ask it anyway. The comments here have been supportive thus far. I plan on using our tax return to start a dividend growth style of investing. I know 5K is not much to start with, compared to starting amounts of others here, but I have to start somewhere, with something. The question is, what would be the best vehicle for implementing this d-g strategy? I do know there are different tax consequences for types of investing(etc. IRA, ROTH IRA, etc.) Thanks :)
