Afraid no one wants dividends these days - I bought more a few days ago. . .remember - "you can NEVER buy at bottom, and you can NEVER sell at the top". . .if you do, it is dumb luck. . .I buy in low ranges. . .although seldom sell stocks. . .I did bailout of Chevron at 100, as I thought it was a "bit" overpriced - took the money and am buying some beaten down Utilities, etc.
I'm afraid I've bought some at the top. But I'm not going to sell them at the bottom.I seldom sell stocks either.At this time I'm about 50% in the hole. I'm not to bright :]I didn't make out to well buying and selling stocks .So I started buying all dividend paying stocks and placed 1/2 of my holdings into the reinvestment plan. I hold the following but not all raise their dividends as the ones posted above.
