  • Could The Oil Discovery In South Australia Be A Game Changer? [View article]
    I searched the find on the net and saw that COP,TOT,CVX, and PTR had investments in the area as well. I am a bit more cautious and would be happy to go with a supermajor oil company and collect my dividend. The small companies bet is higher risk/higher reward and not for me. I appreciate the article.

  • My Dividend-Focused Portfolio: Past, Present, Future [View article]
    Guraaf,
    I am holding money from those sales and holding new money for better entry points. I think we may have better points this summer. I have made a couple of small biotech/device purchases recently that I will hold and follow. Those are high risk high reward, but I put only a small amount of money that I designated for a high growth segment of my investments.

  • My Dividend-Focused Portfolio: Past, Present, Future [View article]
    Guraaf,
    I too had a position in Fairholme that I had for years that I recently sold because of the AIG and sears fund holdings. I also recently sold TEF and wish that I had sold it when the dividend cut was announced. I continue to hold TOT but watch it closely. I have PEP and will continue to hold it. Nice portfolio and I enjoy your articles Guraaf.

    Thank you for the article. I look forward to the challengers article. I appreciate the break down by earnings growth. I have a couple that I am looking to add but am waiting for slightly better entry points. I have another 15-20 years till retirement so I am looking for faster growth.

  • My First Quarter Income Stream Watchlist [View article]
    Bob,
    Just curious, are you going to wait till later in the year for additional purchases? The market is on a tear and I have cash from a few legacy mutual funds to invest. I think summer may have better buying opportunities.

  • Managing Your Portfolio - Selling [View instapost]
    Chowder,
    Excellent article. I have been asking the sell question of several people and I like your answer. I owned TEF and sold it after the dividend was suspended. I agonized over the sell and delayed , watching the share price continue its fall before selling. I have been thinking about sell decisions and plan on sticking to them in the future.

    Chuck,
    Another great article. I appreciate the lists. I have a position in KMB and noted that you had it listed as overvalued, are you going to sell your position? If not at what point would you sell?

  • Valuations Just Aren't Compelling Up Here [View article]
    I am glad to hear someone else say what I have been thinking. I have exited a couple of positions and have a couple of mutual funds that I have been trying to decide when to sell. I think that stocks may sell off soon and we may have some bargains in the summer.

  • Investment Strategy: What Portfolio Withdrawal Rate Can You Live With? [View article]
    I don't have an answer. The numbers from the accountant suggested that going to a 401k with a match might save money ,since some people would not invest in retirement to get the match. We stayed with a profit sharing plan since we wanted to ensure a retirement for our employees.

    Viperman,
    At my small company we have a profit sharing plan and some of the people at work will quit when they have enough in the plan to take off 2 years without working. Sadly, that is not uncommon.

  • Portfolio For Do It Yourselfers: The 2012 Update (Part 1) [View article]
    Dave,
    I was asking about declining dividend growth rate and at what point do you drop a stock. KMB as an example 10yr dgr roughly 9%, 5 yr 7%, 3 yr 7%, 1 year 4.3%.
    Sorry the question wasn't clear.

    Dave,
    Great portfolio! One question I have is the dividend growth rate that you would use as a reason to cut a stock 3%,4% or more? I would add that Mississippi is a well kept secret, but I have a lot of new neighbors from other states. I have several from California, New York,Ohio to name a few.
    Go REBS!
