  • It May Be Time To Sell Out Of High-Yielding AT&T [View article]
    I doubt that it hits 30. Buyer will plunge in, thus pushing the price higher. The dividend yield at $30 would be too high to resist for us income investors.

  • What Harvard Can Teach Us About Portfolio Management [View article]
    I would suggest a portfolio of large cap blue chip dividend and dividend growth stocks, paying out circa 3 - 5% annually in dividends. They could have a bond fund as well, since those seem obligatory. But the stock fund would not have to be touched (just monitored and stocks added during corrections).

    The income would be from the increasing dividend stream (increasing because blue chip companies generally increase their dividends each year). And the principal would remain intact.

    You would think someone at Hahhvad would have the intelligence to construct a safe, productive investment portfolio. If they have but the courage to eschew the tenets of the inexplicably omnipresent MPT and the now-refuted EMT. They could consult with Warren Buffett, who has openly and vigorously critiqued the EMT.

  • Angie's List Is Melting Down To $0 [View article]
    When I was single I lived in Huntington, in one of those high rises on Route 1, I forgot the name of the building, maybe Huntington towers. Small world.

    gmansour, there are simply people on SA who hate high yielding dividend stocks. Don't let them bother you. I'll just keep making money off of T, MO, and the others cash cows.

    Older people who watch late night TV and are not experienced with the internet are their prime victims. They are drawn in by the ads, and their having been burned by service people in the past. Once the WWII generation dies off, Angies will have no target demographic.

    One of my neighbors used them, until I started critiquing the business model without realizing he was a client. He is in his 70's, and AL is appealing to older people who don't know their way around the internet and like the warm, appealing TV ads.

    Great investing story. I like to treat my blue chip investments like a bar of soap: the more I touch it the smaller it gets. Therefore, i seldom sell.

    That is the right attitude, Andy. Get rich owning boring dividend stocks. They are great for income investors.

    Long T, strictly for the dividends.

  • 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).

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