  • Retirement Strategy: Buying The Dips Worked Once Again [View article]
    Gee, David, you bought many of the same stocks I did. (I don't own RAI, but I do own and added to BX). Hopefully there will be another sale in a few months, after I build my cash back up.

    Thanks for the article, RS. I don't worry about buying at the absolute bottom. I own most of your listed stocks and added to them last week when the prices were low enough that the dividend yields were attractive. And if the market went lower, I would buy more.

    These are good long term dividend stocks that seldom go on sale. When they do, be ready to pounce.

  • Why Altria Group Is A Great Buy At Current Levels [View article]
    It is a great bargain for dividend investors. Not necessarily for growth investors.

    Long MO.

    This is straight out of Atlas Shrugged. Bitcoin proponents stop the engines of the world: the "illegitimate Fed." Good luck with that.

    Marijuana is just a passing fad of these young communistic hippies. Chewing tobacco, that is where to put your money.

    I play the currency markets. I'm now a millionaire. The problem is, when I started playing currencies, I was a billionaire. (*_*)

  • Stocks For 2014: Fairly Valued Dividend Growth Stocks With An Emphasis On Dividends - Part 4 [View article]
    I used to invest in foreign companies like shipping companies, VALE, Southern Copper, etc., but found that their dividends were erratic and often did not match what SA, Fidelity, and other quote sites claimed they would be. Just too unreliable for me. But I wish others luck with them.

  • Why Dividends Matter, Part 2 [View article]
    Define safe bonds. I'm guessing they are the ones yielding <1%. Bond are highly risky in the current environment. The WWII generation loves their bonds. And all they do - I have to listen to them at an assisted living home I visit - is complain about how much money they've lost over the last five years.

  • Warren Buffett Is Wrong About Dividends [View article]
    I'm biased against the young. I used to be young: I know how little they know, and how much they think they know.

    Very nice, and perfectly explained. But incomprehensible to Financial Advisors and Growth investors and traders.

    I'm not familiar with STO. I mean US companies with an international footprint (I'm American), like GE, KMB, MCD, JNJ, etc.

  • Why Dividends Matter, Part 2 [View article]
    Wonderful response, No Free Cake. Frankly, regarding temperament, voluminous data and studies show that the majority of investors (many one might assume to be under RIA guidance) act irrationally during corrections or crashes.

    The overwhelming majority of investors (and financial advisors) panicked during the worst of the crash of 08 and sold out of the stock funds, and many even completely withdrew all of their money from brokerage firms. I know this from primary sources within my own Brokerage firm (and our conversations were recorded).

    People who did not panic - they were likely concerned but acted rationally - had temperaments suited to long term investing. As far as I could tell in my own research, these were experienced value and dividend investors who understood that corrections were buying opportunities.

    Some who listened to CNBC (Cramer famously told his morning audience to Sell their stocks near the market bottom - it's on Youtube), Fox Business news and the "end of the world" narrative may have converted their dwindling assets into gold, but most long term value and dividend investors stayed the course, and even added stocks to their portfolios.

    This can be confirmed by speaking to advisors at the large brokerage houses.

    So, sorry Larry, your RIA peeps just don't seem to have the temperament to go against public opinion and the MPT orthodoxy; the fact is you guys are the public opinion.
