As interest rates rise - might hurt the PPS - but IMHO - the divi should more then make up for it even in the worse case scenerion. Compared to leaving money in cash - I see this as a much better fairly safe investment.
Despite all the warnings about tapering by the Fed, there is no way they can taper before the Mid-Term elections in 2014. The massive "stimulus" is the only glue holding this fake recovery together. Dems want to take the House and strengthen the Senate with this recovery BS. This remains a unique opportunity to increase equities value during this charade.
