  • S&P 500 Best Dividend Stocks According To A Winning Ranking System [View article]
    Like a lot of ranking systems, they were probably using dated data, and the info likely was put to bed prior to PBI's dividend cut.

  • 5 Quality Dividend Payers I Bought On The Dip [View article]
    I like your investing style. You seem to have the temperament for it. We dividend investors find ourselves awaiting dips or corrections to go on shopping binges.

    This is contrary to the average "investor" who moans or panics during dips and moves from stock funds to bond funds (this is well documented, and news was made last week when a record number of "investors" fled stock funds for bond funds during the 3 week dip).

    Best of luck. I am retired and after 25 years of dividend stock investing have a steady, rising dividend income stream. It can be done.

    Nice article. Long BRK.B and bought more during the recent dip. I owned BRK.A in my IRA for many years and sold it to capture some huge capital gains (turns out I sold a bit too soon, but that is how I make my money, by selling too soon).

    The second stock, PBI, cut its dividend last year.

    I made the bond mistake myself. Easy to do with all of the financial advisors pushing them.

  • Deere Delivers, Is A Top Pick [View article]
    I've owned DE for about 10 years now, back when the dividend yield was close to 4%. And before the stock split (back when stocks split). This has been a great long term stock for conservative investors. Thanks for the article.

    Long DE, for the long-term.

    Uh, that was at the bottom of the worst crash in a generation. Many stocks were at their lows and thus had high yields. I'm not sure we will see another such crash in the near future.

    That is stating the obvious, that buying a stock at a lower price is better. I was talking about your prediction that LO will raise its dividend and then be superior as an investment. That is an opinion. It may or may not be true.

  • Why Dividends Matter, Part 2 [View article]
    I would have done well, like I did in 2008. You see, a couple of companies cut dividends, but the great majority of my stocks maintained or raised their dividends. Yes, dividend investors do well while bond investors crash and burn. Ask Bond King Bill Gross how his bonds have been doing. He said he has had to move some of his investors' money into dividend paying stocks to make up the lost bond income. At least he admitted it.

    Bill, that is your opinion. I deal in facts.

    Thanks for the article. I agree, MO is a BUY.

    Long MO and PM, for the dividends.

  • Google: Reaching New Heights [View article]
    Google will hit 3000 by the end of the year. Apple will hit 550 or so. But I'm wearing my Google glasses so my estimates may be a bit off.

  • Why Bitcoin Matters [View article]
    Stephen, you have not watched the Youtube video Edison's Revenge, which is all about bitcoin and the Libertarian agenda that propels it. The film spells it out in detail.

  • Income Investors: Be Ready For More Bargains [View article]
    Thanks, I did not realize it was an LP. Fidelity's consensus analysts rating has it Strongly Bullish with a 9.9 out of 10 recommendation (the highest I have ever seen). Hopefully Quicken tax (or whatever the wife uses) will figure out the tax issue.

  • Bitcoin For Wal-Mart And Target [View article]
    Spoken like a true Libertarian. Punish the poor by paying them less, because it is their fault they are poor. And pay the rich more because, well, they work harder than the poor (a recent quote from a billionaire) and they support the GOP.

    How about some basic kindness and fairness?
