    Looking for other stocks to place some money on . Well do some homework on these .Also , look at their payout histories . ARLP 7.90% , NS 7% , T 5.30% , FUN 5.30% ,VZ 4.50% , KMI 4.30% and AROW 3.70% with a 2% stock split every year .

    KMI – which has a projected dividend of $2.00 in 2015, a 16 percent increase over the anticipated 2014 dividend of $1.72. We expect to grow the dividend by approximately 10 percent each year from 2015 through 2020 .

    Like I said, do your own homework.

    Well best of luck to you .

    I'm long term in my thinking too . That's why I only buy and hold dividend paying stocks . I stay well diversified and away from REIT's now . As I've lost some money on REIT's , NFI and SFI just to name two . However, SFI is now STAR and may be on it's way back , but still no dividend yet . Also , I'm still over 50% in the red with it . I also rode way down into the red with both MIC and FUN . But they both came back strong and I'm well in the green again .

    Banks dividends also looked like they were here to stay . So I was strong in BAC and C . But many years ago Obama and other lawyers sued C . The case was eventually settled out of court, with some class members receiving cash payments and Citibank agreeing to help ease the way for low- and moderate-income people to apply for mortgages. The other banks also gave out easier mortgages after that . Then it looks like Obama forced the banks to take large loans from the government . For giving out those loans once he became president . My point is , IMHO , never be overweighed in any one sector no matter how good they may look .They may be here today and gone tomorrow . Stay well diversified and some stocks may go down and other may go up . But over all I've been staying ahead of the game .

    Thanks on the GE . But I've also bought 144 shares of GE @ $13.08 ,I'm very happy with it . Sure I wish I had more , but happy just to have some . I also bought some BP not long after the oil spill , nice dividend but the price hasn't moved much . But I'll hold it and wait . KMI may be worth doing some homework on . Kinder Morgan has stated the company will increase the dividend by 16% this year and 10% each year until 2020 . I have KMI and they just completed one of the largest mergers in the US .

    Best of luck to you .

    Not looking to good at this time .I guess everybody will be on KMI when it opens .

    I had KMP and now it's KMI after the Merger Transactions . KMI projects a dividend of $2.00 per share for 2015, a 16 percent increase over the 2014 KMI dividend budget of $1.72 per share. The company expects to grow the dividend by approximately 10 percent each year from 2015 through 2020 . Both KMP and KMI had a great dividend history .

    So I'm very happy too. However, always stay well diversified .Look at stocks like MIC , DUK , ARLP , AROW ,FUN . NS,T , VZ ,SPH and GE .Oh, I think IEP is looking good too . But it's down right now . Check out all of their dividend histories . Always do your own homework . I just buy them and hold them . I'm sure you'll find something you like in there .

    Well best of luck to you

  • North Carolina environmental officials said Tuesday that they are fining Duke Energy $25 million over pollution that has been seeping into groundwater for years from a pair of coal ash pits at a retired power plant.
    The state Department of Environment and Natural Resources called it the state's largest penalty for environmental damages. It issued the fine over ongoing contamination at the L.V. Sutton Electric Plant outside Wilmington. The site includes a pair of unlined dumps estimated to hold 2.6 million tons of ash.

    The state touted the fine as an important development to hold Duke accountable for years of pollution.

    "Today's enforcement action continues the aggressive approach this administration has taken on coal ash," said Donald R. van der Vaart, the department's secretary.

    But environmental groups said the fine doesn't force Duke to clean up the pollution — something they've been trying to get the $50 billion Charlotte-based company to do for years. Without that, groundwater near Flemington, a largely working-class community, will remain contaminated, said Kemp Burdette, executive director of the nonprofit Cape Fear River Watch.

    "A $25 million fine doesn't do anything to clean up the contamination caused by Duke's coal ash ponds," Burdette said.

    "They're not forcing Duke to start treating groundwater, or start doing something to clean up the contamination. What they need to be doing is forcing them to clean it up. If they want to fine them, fine. The important thing here is getting the groundwater cleaned up," he said.

    Charlotte-based Duke Energy has 30 days to appeal the fine.............................................

    PS: XOM, COP and BP . All their estimated earning are heading down . But all 3 look like good companies . I have BP and I'm keeping it . However ,if you're looking to diversify some and also looking for dividend stocks . Look at stocks like MIC , DUK , ARLP , AROW ,FUN . NS,T , VZ ,SPH and GE .Oh, I think IEP is looking good too . All their estimated earning are heading up.

    Anyone buying BP for its dividends?

    wareham2620 wareham2620 Dec 31, 2014 10:17 AM Flag

    Nothing is guaranteed in the stock market . But in my opinion I like to look at the earnings per share . Are they estimated to go up or down ? I also like to look at the dividend history . Are the dividends holding steady or going up ? Going down is not a good sign .

    I have BP and it's estimated earnings per share are going down. But I'm holding on to my BP.I bought it just after the oil spill . I think IEP is looking good . Also , look at stocks like SO or DUK , ARLP , AROW ,FUN . KMI,T or VZ . Also stay diversified , never put all your eggs in one basket .

    Well best of luck to you .

    Laid-off from BP?

    According to an AP article in the news paper, the count comes from the people drawing unemployment and the figures are based upon the increases in people applying for benefits each month.

    So , when those people stop collecting unemployment they're no longer counted . Also, those working less than 30 hours a week are having a hard time making ends meet .However, the unemployment rate will be going up now ,as the oil companies will be laying off .

    Now that the Southern boarder was open we even have less jobs to go around . Also, we have to pay for their medical , schooling and lunches . Things are not that good . Now after they take from the rich ( or those of us that worked ,saved and invested anything ) Who will they take it off of next ?

    Well have a good day , as tomorrow may not be as well .

    Lower oil hurting the pipelines ?

    A response from the CLMT board stated :

    crk00 • 4 hours ago



    I think what is going on is this market is driven by ETFs. They just short the etf XLE and everything energy goes down. There is no discrimination between companies. I have noticed that my stocks cannot go up, if they are shorting my etf. Your stock goes where the ETF goes. I don't like it. Blackrock likes it! Less

  • Now with the oil down I hope I stay in the green . I didn't think lower oil prices would make the pipelines stocks drop . As I thought they were paid by the amount pushed through their pipelines . I would think refiners like CLMT would do well .

    Now with the oil down, I would think refiners like CLMT would do well . I'm holding on to this and my pipelines too .

    Why is this POS tanking

    wareham2620 wareham2620 Dec 4, 2014 12:27 PM Flag

    Well I'm an investor ,not a trader . So I don't care if the share price is going down . As long as the dividend stays the same or is going up . I may feel better if my portfolio is worth more over all . However , that doesn't effect my returns . I worry when they stop or cut their dividends . That's the time to sell .

    If the share price is going down it may be time to place your portfolio into the reinvest plan . As for myself I have some in the reinvest plan . I also depend on some cash returns to pay my taxes and / or have spending money .

    Well have a good day as the market has always been going up and down .

    Earnings in the black

    If we're in the black , it should be back. Hello 2015 and it has been a long wait .
    Diversified real estate investment trusts (REITs) invest in a wide variety of real estate assets, including leveraged portfolios of real estate financial products, such as mortgage backed securities, agency and non-agency mortgage investments, and other debt, along with physical properties. REITs are required to pay out most of their earnings in dividends, and as a result tend to offer very high dividend yields.
