Sounds like you are looking at some smart, conservative investments.
I was not kidding about buying a stock with the potential to DBLE. That is the stock, DBLE, a small energy company ($150 million market cap) run by a couple of honest, well respected energy professionals.
They have got some things going that should generate some solid, low risk growth next year.
Also, for a little serandipity, they are drilling a wildcat well on a prospect that has taken 30 years to get permitted to drill. While admittedly a high risk, wildcat well, the upside is phenomenal.
As always, due your own diligence.
When I got fed up with LGI, I put a substantial amount of my money into DBLE and I haven't been disappointed.
