    Thanks for the reply - good to see the low trading expenses too - I think you will find the tax advantages to covered call income will be a nice surprise too.

  • How One Retiree Is Muddling Through Dividend Investing: Part VIII - A Year Later [View article]
    I enjoyed your article and I learned a few things. I'm wondering how much your trading costs are during the year? Sometimes those expenses will place a good dent in your return. I also thought to suggest writing some covered calls on a small portion of your RTN - I had a large similar position on WMT - and the covered calls helped add some income during its trading range. If you keep the covered call positions very modest - it won't cause too much of a capital gain bite if called away.

    Good luck & thanks for the nice article

  • This Could Be The Perfect ETF For A Roth IRA [View article]
    Great article - I've owned Guggenheim's RSP and CVY within my Roth - and have rounded out the balance with PowerShare PCEF -
    1/5 RSP, 3/5 CVY & 1/5 PCEF - PCEF has been a great yield machine but perhaps what you suggest would have been much better - I'll know soon after back testing - thanks again.

  • Listed Private Equity: From Skeptic To Believer [View article]
    Within some managed accounts I noticed that some managers avoided PSP and others because these include the whole group of PE while perhaps you'd be better off owning the best of breed - such as Appolo, Blackstone and Cargyle

  • Should You Buy Realty Income At Current Prices? [View article]
    Extra great article - just started my monthly purchases of 100 ss of O this week. Many of the follow up articles are also very well articulated too. Owning a diversified portfolio of REITS and companies like COP and others is the way to go. I'll start looking at RD.A very soon Thanks to everyone who have contributed to this article.

  • Realty Income: Should You Buy At $40 Per Share? [View article]
    A very good article - THANK YOU - really insightful and merits consideration - with dollar cost averaging i.e.. buying a bit (more) now and a bit more later might prove to be a beneficial strategy for long term investors - there's nothing like seeing a bit a "cha-ching" hitting your brokerage account each month -

    I will be looking to see how insiders are doing - many of the REITS have been mauled recently during the last few months - so looking at what the insiders are doing could be a component to include within anyone's investment action plan.

  • With IBM Down, Buy And Sleep Sound Like Buffett [View article]
    I own IBM and purchased some more earlier this year - so I'm experiencing a case of buyer's remorse. I'm considering selling my position and using the proceeds to add to my RSP & SDY positions - both will have some IBM within these ETFs - One of my favorite authors is Malcom Gladwell - within one book of his called Blink - it indicates that one's first impression is usually the correct one. My BLINK tells me to drop IBM - regardless of the factors that indicate at this level it's a buy - My instincts tell me otherwise.

    Good article - something has always been grating on me about MCD and your article helped me to focus on a possible action plan - perhaps swap my MCD for RSP -
    Thanks for this material.

  • It's A Myth: Triple Net Lease REITs Aren't Bonds, They Are Becoming A Core Asset Class For Income Investors [View article]
    Brad - is there an ability to track ownership within these REITS - namely large pension funds and fiduciary trust companies as investors / owners of some of the major REITS ? These entities normally stay fully invested so as an investment ownership class if these organizations are buying or selling - seeing their activities might be a sort of canary in the coal mine.

  • It's A Myth: Triple Net Lease REITs Aren't Bonds, They Are Becoming A Core Asset Class For Income Investors [View article]
    Another excellent article - personally I'm long O & HCN - your insights also help me sleep at night too. Will there be more consolidation within medium sized REITS? Watching the merger purchase price can provide a glimpse of what the near future might be. Also reviewing the source of funding for these REITS is another component to consider - these sources are as important as the quality of the tenant.

    Always enjoy reading your Seeking articles - thanks!

    well thought out article on Teva - as well as the comments - I've been tempted to trim back but I just can't pull the trigger. Hopefully three to five years from now I'll be happy I kept my position
