  • Take These Dividends And Call Me In The Morning: Inoculation For A Bear Market [View article]
    @usiah
    Just took a look at IRS Form 1116 ... it's above my pay grade. I have a tax guy that crunches the numbers for me. Throw in a couple of MLP's and foreign stocks and hope your tax guy knows what he's doing.

    Good point on the IRA although EnerCare is an income ploy on my part as a retiree, and with a lot of upside growth potential to boot.

    Yes, but it's a wash. Pay one or pay the other. You get a foreign tax credit on this side and your dollar actually buys more on the other.

    I own many of these companies and continually look for hidden gems to support my latté life style. EnerCare, CSUWF, is a hidden gem with a 1.1 million (captured) customer base and virtually no competition that pays a nice 5.7 monthly dividend. There is little or no debt and a product/service safety net for or in market declines.

  • There's A Lot In Store For STORE Capital [View article]
    The yield sinks! There are far too many solid companies you can invest in imo. As always, great article Brad. Detailed and well written.

    Fidelity scores HASI "VERY BEARISH". We'll put it on the watch list for awhile and see who's right or wrong.

  • Getting Rich Slowly: An Investment Strategy [View article]
    As an income retiree type investor my starting point are companies with a 3.5 yield. There are way too many good companies out there to consider anything less. The "slowly" doesn't work at my age.

  • Recent Buy: Avista Corporation [View article]
    I recently bought Empire Direct EDE: Lots of upside and a great dividend. Aside from the div cut when Joplin, MO was hit a devastating tornado the company has a solid history of div and equity growth. I’m betting the market corrects in 2015 and utilities is where I feel most safe. Avista looking interesting too. Thanks

  • My REIT Underdog Pick For 2015 [View article]
    Stocks go up. Stocks go down. As long as CORR keeps paying an 8% yield I can stay long and deal with the ups and downs.

    Let's keep in mind CORR is a lease back REIT not a MLP. Tons of upside here.

  • This Health Care REIT Is Floating Like A Butterfly [View article]
    It’s a conundrum. I’m sitting on a pile of cash waiting while everything seems to be going up and up. Damn. Everything in REIT land seems to be over priced. Sure as heck as soon as I buy we’ll have a correction… waiting isn’t easy but I’m going to wait and see for now.

    Thanks for the update. I've had EDE since 2010. I'm up 65% and the dividend is great. EDE is not well know with an average volume of -200K on a daily bases, EDE is truely a defensive sleep well at night stock. I wsih the company's dividend history was on their web page. I sent them an email asking why. We'll see if they respond.
