  • AT&T: The Next Big Thing For Dividend Investors  [View article]
    Agreed. AT&T is not a customer-oriented company, which is why they just cannot seem to rise to the top.

    No, but I'm stuck with the aftermath: 2800 shares of Columbia Property Trust, now at 63% value of original Wells investment (still down 37%).

  • Dumb Investment Of The Week: Public Non-Traded REITs  [View article]
    This man speaks wisdom. Heed his advice and run, don't walk away from this type of investment. I wish that I could have read this article in 2007, before I invested in a non-traded Wells REIT. To date, I've lost 40% of my investment.

  • Kinder Morgan Energy Partners Vs. AMLP, An MLP ETF  [View article]
    Nice article, Geoff. I own two MLP's and, while shopping for more, I came across AMLP. I opted to round off my MLP holdings with AMLP simply for the lower volatility and the exposure to a broader base of MLP's.

  • BP Set To Benefit Shareholders... And Only Shareholders  [View article]
    Why do you think that BP should pay for damages not related to the spill? Why shouldn't plaintiffs have to prove their cases in court, like everyone else?

    As one of the original non-traded investors, I paid $40 per share for this. What are my chances of getting to even?

  • Is This Security A Safe Haven? Absolutely Not  [View article]
    This is a professional and well-stated article. I am long NLY as well, but I tend to forget how risky a stock it is. Thanks for the wake-up call.

  • Team Alpha Retirement Portfolio: Dividend Investing Vs. Annuity Purchasing  [View article]
    I had been wrestling with whether to purchase an annuity and was thinking that the return was primarily my own money. I do much better dividend investing on my own.

    Thank you and your contributors for clarifying and confirming what I was thinking. Great article!

  • Mortgage REITs: Fashionably Late To The Party  [View article]
    Thank you for a organized and professionally-presented article. I wish I could have read this prior to buying 4 separate REIT's; I agree that REM is a better way to go. REM provides diversification and simpler management (tracking).
