  • ETF Update: 5 New Funds To Be Thankful For [View article]
    “Funds to Be Thankful For” … climate change ETF … really? I think the CC data is proven to be manipulated and flawed and buying into this feel good “puffery” (throw dollars at it and hope something sticks) is negligent at best.

  • Omega Healthcare Investors' (OHI) CEO Taylor Pickett on Q3 2015 Results - Earnings Call Transcript [View article]
    When the Fed’s raise rates it’s going to get ugly, or so I’m told. I sent a recommendation to Omega suggesting a monthly dividend rather than quarterly. It’s all done by computer so it’s easy. The idea is to build a stronger shareholder base with more income investors who tend to be buy-and-hold for long periods of time instead of market timers or doomsayers that jump from one stock to another. The fundamentals are strong and the senior market is expanding. I’m not a numbers guy but feel the dividend is safe. Now, if somebody from Omega reads this and they start talking about a monthly-pay revision I’m a happy camper for now and the foreseeable future.

  • Enercare: 6% Yield And Growing [View article]
    As an income investor EnerCare is a solid monthly producer with little or no competition. Boring is GOOD. Great demographics and automatic monthly utility pay/deduction with a customer based of 1M plus. Need a water heater? Hassle free and no large up front outlay with a few dollars added to your monthly utility bill makes this company a safe bet regardless of market ups and downs.

  • Top 10 REITs For Dividend Growth And Income [View article]
    A lot of hard work put into this article. Thanks. The good news is I own three of the top ten companies mentioned. I also own a Canadian monthly pay small cap diamond in the rough that "owns" its market-with no competition and a current yield of 5%. The company, EnerCare ECI:CA is selling at a 52wk low. I consider it a great long term buying opportunity.

  • Liberty Property Trust Is No Bargain, But Lexington Realty Screams 'I'm Cheap' [View article]
    Small caps are risky, proceed with caution. Example: STAG and CLDT. They are getting hammered. More pain to follow. And wait til the Fed's start bumping up the interest rate. Personally, I'm going to sit on the sidelines and wait for a correction tha't soon to come and it won't be pretty. jmo

  • First-Quarter REIT Underdog Update [View article]
    Okay, here I go again thinking outside the box: If you like CORR and HASI you will love ECI.CA ... Brad, I would love you to take a look at EnerCare and offer some feedback. I'm looking at it as an income retirement holding. I only see positive although I often wear rose colored glasses. Here's the latest burp on EnerCare:

    I like thinking outside the box. CORR is outside the box. I like different. CORR is different. Given a measurable risk/reward scenario, I’m in and holding as of your first CORR article. Thanks Brad…

    Another good find Brad. When are you going to run some numbers on EnerCare CSUWF. Your elvals are held in high regard. EnerCare might be a safer play than WPTIF? imo
