<<< getting 4% just to hold on is quite attractive.
That part I am good with
<<<it's making no signs whatsoever of building a base of support, and that it still doesn't seem to have found its low.
That part is what troubles me. Any more overall economic bad news...and, for certain there will be more, than this thing could easily head back to the March 2009 low of around $38.50/sh. Multi year lows beyond that...
So, I ask, sell now and put money into something with equal or higher divvy return and a better prospect for a near-term capital gain...or just hold and hope?
Some options to consider:
ETF's for muni, corporate or preferred bonds...like EOT, KSM, KMM, NIO, NMM, BDF, JHP
MLP's like EPD, ETP, MWE, NRGP, WPZ
All of the above offer divvys/distributions equal to or better than EXC.
