    It's days like ...

    ... today that I am glad that all of my stocks are high divy, and I am under no pressure to sell any of them. We'll be past this soon enough. I'll be picking up table scraps at good prices in the meantime.

    • As I may have mentioned elsewhere I have about 5% of my portfolio in mreits tho they account for almost 25% of my divs. The rest are in more modest div paying stocks but which tend to raise their divs regularly. The unspent divs are plowed back into stocks. Thus my ideal scenario is for divs to rise while the pps falls so i can get more bang for the buck (and incidentally get better premiums on my put selling). The divs have been increasing in my non mreit portfolio ok, but so have been the pps (even at a faster rate). My put selling has gone into hibernation too.
      So i for one want a market correction (as long as the divs keep increasing of course). Will this happen? So far the corrections have been brief and shallow. I know my view is unpopular but thats what suits me. No I do not short stocks. Not my thing.

    • Me too! I did make a quick forex US$/Yen trade that made me a bundle.
      And I did a one day trade on USLV for a 12% yesterday (post on AGNC mb)
      Do you notice anything strange about the AGNC mb?
