    Bloom off the Rose

    Thanks Eddy, I too loaded up on the RO but I also continue to reinvest the distributions or should I say payouts.

    Up until now the share price has been able to continue upward...the portfolio value is increasing at a rate high enough to absorb the capital distribution.

    Just looks like we're stuck here and while the RO was a good thing, recent reinvestment at $18.67 is questionable. I'm evaluating whether or not to keep reinvesting.

    • Good Afternoon....

      Keep in mind that a lot of us "ALWAYS" take "CASH" [as a retiree....."Show me the money.....cashflow] vs reinvesting the proceeds....

      There are "normally" too many investments to look at [that have a lot of "Potential"] to meet our "Rule of 72" [which is necessary and mandatory]. Also, building a portfolio [similar to a "Mutual Fund] with no single investment >6% [using the phases of 2cube theory or some alternate methodology for dollar cost averaging] reduces our overall "RISK" [using "Statistical Methodology"]....

      In your case, you have a harder decision to make because of choosing the reinvestment option....

      I always believe [IMHO] that having cash available always gives us a few more options when a potential investment appears....

      Live Long and Prosper....
