Nobody here can see into the future and hindsight is 20/20. My 11 year dividend income (mostly from the energy sector) has been enough to sustain me and even though things are down right now, I'm not selling. I also don't take advice from braggadocios and anonymous internet sources who find it easy to shoot off their mouths and say anything, but won't even identify themselves.
Well, believe it or not, these were actually good issues 10 years ago (until 3 or 4 years ago), but it's going to be a while until the oil/gas glut dries up. Oil prices seem to be in a short term rise, but there's just too much NG in the marketplace.
I had MCG Capital and Thornburg Mortgage to balance out my portfolio and by the Grace of God alone, managed to get out of them just before they collapsed. MCG is still in business but I would have lost 2/3 of my investment. Thornburg went into bankruptcy, the loss would have been 100% if I had hung on. I'll never go near real estate issues again either.
