    BO - have to strongly disagree with you on the drone vs A-10. as one who has called in CAS on more than a few occasions, i think the ability to speak with the pilot in real time and have him actually put eyes on what you want him to hit is highly desirable, not to mention he has 360 view on everything without having to re-orient the aircraft or swivel an optic - fractions of a second count in this business. having an A-10 overhead and knowing it can stick around a while is a nice feeling.

  • My 3 Loyal Sons: How A Wacky Idea Inspired My Sons To Invest In Stocks [View article]
    an early financial well-being education - one of the greatest gifts you could give them! a few years ago, when my daughter was 7, i set up an brokerage account for her with the money received from relatives/friends when she was born. her first response, when i asked her what she thought she should do with the money, was, of course, go out and buy something with it. she was in to the monster high dolls at the time - so i asked her, would you rather own another monster high doll, or own part of the company that makes them, which will pay you every couple of months for being an owner - thankfully she made the right choice. as responsible parents i think we owe it to our children to make them learn about financial management as early as possible.

    estell/Bob - it's not the younger pro (or at least not fanatically anti) west iranians that are the problem, it's the mullahs that still run the country and have a fanatical "fan" base. only time will tell to see if the country decides if it wants to be part of a more modern, tolerant world.

    tony - try cutting your simple carbs as well. I also had high tri's, cutting the simple carbs and upping my cardio exercise got them down to below 100.

  • PSEC: Portfolio Rehab, Step 2 - Know Who Works For You [View article]
    rotated out of $PSEC with a small profit in one account, small loss in another, so basically a wash - but dead money for too long. i too was using it to fund other purchases. took funds and added to $MAIN and $ETY - i can stomach a few % less for more confidence in mgmt. as for PSEC - good riddance.

  • Dividends At A Reasonable Price: Toronto-Dominion Bank And Royal Bank Of Canada [View article]
    Boom - you are correct re div growth, it is more geared to monthly income. A possible strategy for Inz to consider - put it in a non-retirement account to fund other acquisitions, like TD and RY, of which I hold both as well. This is what I use it for (along with others) due to it's higher than avg yield, relatively low volatility (when compared with higher yielding BDC's/REITS), and monthly payout. It has worked quite well. It looks like Inz wanted to generate current income, so this could help to generate both current cash for use and to fund acquisitions of div growers. Doesn't hurt that it gives you some capital appreciate as well.

    Inz - you may want to consider looking into FIE - it holds all the big 5, preferred shares, and other Canadian financials. i think the div is about 6% +/- and pays out monthly.
