They claim that is just 'buying opportunity'. We'll see what they say then. Meanwhile there is an article almost every day in Seeking Alpha where it is just happy talk. 'My 3 month update'. Everyone is ahead and dividends just keep going up. Most have just started since 2010 and never managed a portfolio that declined.
I responded to your post there with some questions.
That would be interesting. The Dividend Growth crowd would be all over you for it. Not enough 'inflation protection'.
I wrote an article on preferreds for Seeking Alpha #3295465. It was aimed at Dividend Growth Investors who had asked me to write a basic article. So nothing new for you, but perhaps you could look in and add something to the discussion.
I agree, that maybe not the best time to be going in big time for REITs. But maybe start some small positions or add to holdings. I last bought at about $39, when yield was 5.5%. Now about 5.1%. I plan on adding a little more now.
I do not really know anyone like that or see ANYONE on this board who is getting pleasure derived from the misfortunes of others. The only 'misfortune' that O holders have is reading that idiots posts. Perhaps it is Schadenfreude Vorstellen. Pleasure from the IMAGINED misfortune of others.
If one could actually go back in time and buy the great stocks like they pretend they did, and know when to sell at the high you wouldn't need to own great dividend payers like O. But in the REAL World steady dividend payers are the way to go.
