Re: NLY

I think FadeMe has a point as REITs in general did not do well during yesterday's big upswing in the stock markets and they are doing all that well in today's market either, though the trading days still has a ways to go.

Re: Dividend Growth Stocks for 2017

i think I will stick to MMM and GPC. If I had more money available, I would follow along that line of 50+ years of dividend growth.

Yes, I realize that occasionally some long time dividend growers fall on the wayside (like AON and DBD), but [more]

Re: Illusion of poverty? Illusion of wealth?

Wendy

$5,000/mo comes out to $60,000/yr that is somewhat more than the median family income. Such a person should feel wealthy but if you worked for $10,000/mo and had to convert to $5,000/mo. in retirement, you might feel [more]

Re: KIM, again?

Re: The Magic of GAB

Is it clear to everyone that GAB pays 10% of NAV, guaranteed? Thus the dollar amount of the dividend moves around considerably.

Also I believe over the years, GAB has had to do some re-capitalization.

Re: Radio Shack

I thought Radio Shack went out of business years ago. I'm surprised they are still in business. There is no Radio Shack in any of the towns near me. No Shake Shack either, but that is another story.

Re: GE dividend payout ratio - bumpy?

I really have no dog in the fight over GE and DUK. I do own DUK though in $50/quart, and DRIP it. I think GE is a good company but do not now own its stock. I will note however that if GE increases its dividend by 15%/yr and DUK stays flat, it will [more]
