Strange EXCEL Problem

I run Microsoft Office 2007 and use EXCEL quite a bit. Suddenly for reasons I have no idea, copying a cell that contained a formula and pasting it in a new cell gave me the number in the cell being copied. When I would double click on the new cell, [more]

Re: AREEP: Good Yield + Call Option (REITnut rev

Perhaps medical office buildings are considered a superior investment because the rentals are not subject so much to the vagaries of government payments by such things as Medicaid. Medicare doesn't pay for nursing home stay, so far as I know (at [more]

Dividends

Not only is the DJIA within the acceptable range of P/E at 15.37 and cheaper than a year ago, but the dividends are 21% higher. The dividend percentage increase is even greater for the Dow Transports and 38.8% higher for the Dow Utilities! I presume [more]

Re: REIT Preferreds: Narrow Fire Exits

I have tried to sell some PSB-U at a small loss to get some money to buy more GPC that has been murdered for unknown reasons as they do not have a large foreign exposure. I got a partial fill for 33 sh. I did not remember about all or none. I'm not [more]

Re: Cost basis in CCP?

Vanguard is considering my CCP as 100% profit. I presume this will be corrected.

1987 Stock Market Crash

I freely admit that I do not do as elegant an analysis as dear Wendy, but I was investing in 1987 when the DJIA tanked 22+% in one day! If you are interested, see my blog piece at:

Re: NHI

I believe all health care REITs have dropped significantly and into bear country (e.g. VTR, etc,.). The question is, have they hit bottom? Eventually they will recover but when I don't know.

HTM to Bitmap

I've got a figure saved as an .htm file and I can see the figure nicely but can't get it into any document (WP, MW, etc.). How can I convert the .htm file to jpeg or something that is a figure so I can put it into a document?

Re: Highest Yield Dividend Aristocrats

Right or wrong, my rule is to sell if a company freezes or cuts their dividend. In doing this, I have missed a few opportunities, but overall it has given me many benefits. Take just WaMu for example. I lost a lot of money on the deal, but at least I [more]

But as you say, fusion power has always been at least 10 yrs n the future. I think that something like $15 billion has been spent so far to get it.

Re: Updated Dividend Champions

I noticed that a slew of companies will join the Sexy 60s group within a year (60 consecutive years of increasing dividends): DOV, GPC, NWN, PH, PG (if I haven't missed any). The only one of these that we own is GPC which is our largest holding by [more]
