Re: Apple in, ATT out

I'm afraid Goofy is right. Yes, in your first example, equity did rise, but not quite as much as it would have without dividends. This is the Warren Buffet view on Berkshire Hathaway.

Re: Public Storage PSA

While we focus here on rising interest rates, let's not forget that there are also bear markets. I took all the biggest losses in my 60 yrs of investing in 2009. I finally sold out my WaMu at $11/sh, but it went to zero! A very good MREIT (TMA) also [more]

Re: Public Storage PSA

If you are not forced to sell your shares at a loss, you will only have a paper loss. A 5.6% issue ($1.40/yr) bought at par and later on selling for $18 would be down a full 7 years of dividends.

Re: Wall Street is bleeding savers dry.

As a former Federal employee, I didn't consider the FSP to be such a good deal (I didn't get a government match as I was in the old CSRS plan). When I retired nearly 20 yrs ago, I moved my FSP to an IRA as soon as I could. I like the idea of doing my [more]

It may be that NRF is the better long-term play, but, since the split, NSAM had done MUCH better. I had dropped to 100 shares of NRF pre-split. Today my 50 sh of NSAM is worth $1224 (for a paper profit of $434.98) and NRF $919.5 (for a [more]
