    Diversification

    "Someone needs to explain to me why everyone is so hot on AT&T and Verizon."

    Well to start with I like them for their dividends.Also ,everybody and their children have a cell phone now a day.

    My guess ,they will probably sell or do away with landlines in the future.That is unless they can find another use for them.

    To tell you the truth ,I'm not real bright.I'm a very poor trader so I became a dividend investor.I'm invested in many diversified dividend paying stocks and placed them all into the reinvestment plan.I've held from the top all the way down. My hope is that most of my stocks make it. Also,that they would make up for my stocks that don't.

    I tried to stay diversified in my holdings.The stocks listed above are from my picks ,trying to help a friend who is looking for dividend paying stocks.

    I have been collecting T's dividends for many years now,since they were SBC.Well, you have explained to me why you were so hot on ACAS .However,it was over my head.So I thought I would reply.Oh ,and yes I still have ACAS.

    My portfolio,

    ABB, AEE, ARLP, BAC, BMY, C, CHKE, CLMT ,CPNO, DFR, DSX, EDE, EPD ,FUN ,JRT, LUMC.OB, MCGC, MMP, NAT ,NRGY ,PCU ,PGN, SFI ,SPH, T, TEG, VGR, ACAS, GE, MIC, PFE, VZ, PCU, LCC .

    My only new holdings are GE,VZ and SPH.I sold some ABB to get GE,some T to get VZ and some NRGY to get SPH.

    So it is for the dividends and to be diversified.

    Well best of luck to you.
