Just curious, since 99.99% of your posts are negative. What would you recommend for income oriented accounts. You don't like O because its 5% dividend is too low. You don't like REITs and BDC's because they are for suckers. You don't like individual stocks because they are risky. You don't like preferred. etc, etc,
well anyway the 'huge capital loss' that I have been saddled with is about 3% so far. (basis $39.50) with a couple of weeks to go in year. Usually an up time so would not be surprised if year ends up about even. Or big deal up or down a few percent. plus the dividends. Anyone who bought in prior years still ahead plus dividends. Seems to fit the bill for income accounts. Next year I expect O to outperform over valued stocks like CLX
exactly. And I have a diversified portfolio. If some are down others are up. They all give me income and that works for me. If you want to short. Or say now you purchased google that is great for you
I am not overlooking total return. And this year my total return is positive. A couple are down, but most holdings are up PLUS dividends.
But then I have to take risks. Like you say we shouldn't. I am not searching for capital gains now. But good luck to those who are. I can collect my income, while shorters make a profit. A win-win
please find that post. I can only find the posts that say my basis is now under $40 after 2 purchases. It is sad. You are an intelligent guy. But because of something that has happened in the past you can not just discuss facts but must resort to lies and misquotes that just make you look like a jerk. That is why you are the board's buffoon. What a waste. Therapy might help.
yes and incorrect fact. many are up. And if they went down so what. Next year some growth stocks may go down. You are against all stocks you say. They are too risky they may go down.
