>>1027268 Also, errody who likes dividends should take a look at GAIN. Hovers between 9-10% return, range bound for the last five years, great balance sheet, paid monthly. Waiting for a pullback to add more myself
I have always concentrated on prices but it seems dividend yield is a neglected strategy of mine. What's the game on picking good dividend stocks? I'm guessing you'd pick stocks with low volatility or ones that are ranging for years as safe bets.
It offsets my losses some. Half way through 2015 I swapped EPD for KMI which turned out to be a horrible mistake. KMI imploded from 45$ to 15$ and is currently -6832.50$ in my portfolio. I'm going to continue holding until oil at least bumps and I can sell at not a damn near 70% loss.
>>1028391 You're correct, but only to the extent you believe there's a notable difference between dividends, interest, and capital gains on managed investments. To me (and most people, and the IRS), passive income is passive income.
>>1028018 >exixf I don't buy things where the dividend is debt funded. Not to mention the energy aspect.
Preferred stock tends to get hit the same amount as ordinary stock when there's a market crash but preferred stock recovers far faster than common stock during the recovery. Not to mention the aspect of the fixed call price preferred shares have.
>>1028182 You should be able to buy preferred shares just the same as common stock. Depending on the broker, they may list the preferred shares with a notation of "-X", " 'x", "pX", etc.
For example, JPM-A, JPM'A, JPMpA. Not all companies issue preferred stock but they're not too hard to find.
>>1028778 >Dividend income is taxed differently Not really. It all comes down to your holding time. You do understand the difference between qualified and non-qualified dividends, right? And how they have the exact same tax rates as LTCG and STCG, respectively?
If not, I suggest a quick Google search might be in order. Feel free to ask if anything doesn't make sense,
>>1029163 That's because what I said is that the qualified dividend tax rates and the LTCG rates are exactly the same. At ALL income levels.
And that the non-qualified dividend rates and STCG rates are exactly the same. At ALL income levels.
All of which was in response to your incorrect statement that "[d]ividend income is taxed differently" and "[i]t all depends on your income" -- neither of which is correct in this context. A context you created when you tried to be a smartass and point out that some of my 2015 distributions were capital gains and not dividends, and which I explained to you was a difference without a distinction.
I realize you're an aspiring numbers guy, but a little reading comprehension would serve you well.

You are being the smartass and I stated the truth, with your income not all being dividends.
