    Twice you refer to writing the 1/20/14 calls. Do you mean 1/20/15 calls?

    Sounds to me like you are overthinking things. You maybe protest too much me thinks.

  • The Most Important Article I Could Ever Write On Dividend Growth [View article]
    You better check CINF 5 yr div growth. It is more like 1.18% instead of 11.87%.

  • My Dividend Portfolio: Evaluating AT&T [View article]
    In addition to the lack of stock appreciation is the lack of any significant dividend appreciation (growth rate). I feel there are better opportunities for stocks with dividends in the 4% range with stable & steady growth rates in the 8%, 10% and even 15% annual growth rates. For example LMT.

  • ConocoPhillips: A Dividend And Total Return Stalwart [View article]
    COP is a core holding for me since $55.70 a share. However, although it has a great dividend and yield it seems to be stuck in the "utility" mode. Hasn't raised it's dividend in over 2 years. I realize we got PSX and that has done quite well - but as they say; what have you done for me lately?

  • Companies selling coffee are expected to continue to skate by with high prices on premium coffee despite the recent drop in coffee commodity costs. Channel checks and recent sales reports indicate demand and pricing power is as strong as ever. Perking up: Starbucks (SBUX), Dunkin' Brands (DNKN), McDonald's (MCD), Green Mountain Coffee (GMCR), Tim Hortons (THI), and Whole Foods Market (WFM). [View news story]
    How do you "sell" something that is "free"? I'm confused.

  • Retirement Income: Portfolio Design For Maximum Current Income [View article]
    Nice article and good list of stocks. My only concern is that some of the stocks listed have only been paying a dividend for 2 years or less and have no history of paying dividends and no history of growth. For instance HTA, dividends paid since 2011. Not much of a history on which to make a recommendation to a client I would guess you do a good fundamental analysis before making your decisions. This is not a criticism rather an observation.

    I did enjoy the article and am looking at some of your selections for further consideration after doing due diligence.

  • Conoco Phillips: High-Yield Blue Chip Heading In The Right Direction [View article]
    I am long COP (1,400 shares) but my only concern is the slowing dividend growth. Although they pay a healthy dividend it has not increased for 9 quarters. I realize we got the PSX spin off which I have kept and added to it and it has done extremely well. But for new investors who didn't get the spin off their DGR could be disappointing.

  • A Low Beta, High Dividend Growth Rate Portfolio With 3.4% Yield And 20% DGR [View article]
    You better check your data sources. It looks like BOKF & NRCI paid special dividends in one quarter and their true yields aren't as high as some databases indicate.

  • Apple: Mixed Report Gives Bulls Some Long-Term Hope [View article]
    JUDOKA: I agree. Long @ $575. Would like to write calls but the stock could jump $20 on any given day and premiums at $490 strike (>$40 above current price) are tiny.

  • Building A 6% Income Portfolio For 2013 (Part 1): Investment Plan & Strategy [View article]
    BruceCM - your last point about NOT getting a 6% portfolio... I think the author was saying 6% income made up of dividend income of say 3.5% and annual conservative option income of 2% to 3%.
