  • Equity Investing Or Index Investing [View article]
    Let me give you a fund that may make you think differently: BIPIX. I first purchased shares on 4/24/13 at $33.33 It closed today at $74.33 for an annualized return of 64.662% per year. It is a biotech fund and as far as I can tell, not one of the stocks in the fund has performed as well as the fund its self. I love it, monitor it closely and plan to hold it for a long time. I am also a DGI investor (and thankfully got out of SDRL just in the nick of time).

    Long ARLP. I consider this to be the highlight of your article:

    Using Regarded Solutions own formula, an entry point to buy more would be $33.27 or $33.28. The highly technical formula is as follows:

    ((52 week high) + (52 week low)) / 2

  • Impressive Dividend Growth Continues For Altria [View article]
    I think if the stock goes down to $41.60 (5% yield) everyone and their brother will jump all over it. Not sure if it will come back to those levels though.

  • This Small Cap MLP Is Proving That Coal Isn't Dead After All [View article]
    Excellent article on an excellent company. It has thrived in spite of a President that (apparently) does not like the coal industry. Long ARLP & going to buy even more.

  • Retirement Strategy: Buy The Dips Portfolio Update With Some Stocks On Sale [View article]
    Thanks David. Sorry my comments didn't fall in line with your thinking. I normally try to learn from folks on Seeking Alpha; I don't tell them they are wrong. Let me try to say it slightly differently. It is my opinion, for the last 10 years, the overall performance of GE has been more like that of a bond, than that of a stock. On 7/30/2004, the adjusted closing price of GE was $23.49 and on 7/31/2014 the closing price was $25.15. My comment to RS was from the standpoint that while I really like about 98% or 99% of his picks, I was scratching my head over GE.

    Let's take one of your points and look at it a little more thoroughly. And let me give you the answer before I give you the equation: The glass is either half full or half empty; it is all about the way you look at it. You stated,
    "What you need to consider is what a stock is selling for today and what might be worth in 5 years--not what it did over the last 5 years. Those years are gone and irrelevant."

    Fair enough. Let's look at GE back on 7/30/2004. As mentioned previously the stock closed on 7/30/04 at $23.49 (on an adjusted basis). Hypothetically a person purchased it then, looking to the future for what they were going to get out of the stock. Some were looking for growth, some were looking for dividends, some were looking for both. On 7/31/2009, it closed at $11.42. That is an annualized return of -13.42% for those 5 years.

    I know that anyone can play with statistics to make them show whatever it is they want to show. Bottom line for me: (nothing more and nothing less) I just want a little more growth to go along with my dividends: Ah la AAPL, MO, MCD, PM, VFC, ROST, O, MAIN, PG, COP, CVX (maybe even a little KO and T).

    David,

    The adjusted closing price of GE on 7/30/04 was 23.49. The closing price on 7/31/15 was 25.15. Sorry, but I don't feel like my statistic on GE is meaningless.

    RS,

    Kind of surprised you have stuck with GE. Overall, it has returned .006846% to share holders over the last 10 years on an annual basis. Have you ever considered replacing it in your portfolio?

  • A Way To Reinvest Your Dividends Based On Yield [View article]
    PTI,

    I normally user finance.yahoo.com but is there a website you use that shows the historical dates of when dividends were raised? I was just thinking, if I want to go back 12 months, some or most all of the stocks that are a part of Dividend Champions, Contenders and Challengers has changed (gone up). Thanks

    Is it possible to ban someone from posting? They have been reported for an offensive post. We've already got enough John Kerry's on the planet and 1 more will NOT HELP.

  • Altria Group: Have We Reached 'Peak Tobacco'? [View article]
    The problem with that response is, you are expecting MO to sit idly by and do nothing. Nothing could be further from the truth. Marijuana: No longer against the law in several states (and soon to be several more). Wow, I think I see an opportunity for MO, PM, RAI to swoop in take advantage of this opportunity. The last thing they will do is to become irrelevant.

    Charlie,

    Both have returned (on average) > 20.4% per year to shareholders. I would think they would find ways to stay relevant, whether it be alcohol, e-cigs or marijuana.
