Want To Get In On Apple? Consider Its Suppliers as Investments

Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) is still trying to recover from the negative reaction to its third quarter earnings report last week.

New buy in my ROTH IRA – RWX a commission free saving

When I started dividends investing in 2012 I had no goal or strategy and I was purchasing stocks with every penny I had. It was long before I realized how futile way of investing this was. Whenever I received a few dollars in dividends or contributed $50 to my ROTH IRA account, I immediately invested Continue reading →

Kinder Morgan (KMI) increases its dividend

Currently, this cutie (KMI) is paying 1.8 bucks per share annually. That translates it into nice income of 4.30% on invested dollar. Where else can you get such nice interest?

Stocks to buy in February 2015

If you bought the stocks I recommended at the beginning of January 2015 and held them until now, you would be up 2.0%. After the volatile and wild month we just went thru, full of wild ups and downs I can’t believe, the stocks I selected for January ended up 20%. Although it wasn’t an Continue reading →

Recently one investor asked me a question whether I would consider selling covered calls against my recently purchased shares of Legacy Reserves (LGCY) or not.

Armour Residential (ARR) Are Insiders Abandoning the Ship?

I once invested in Armour Residential (ARR) for high income. It was at the time when this stock traded at $8 – $10 range in 2009. Today, this company is down low at $3.40 a share and it looks like it is going to die after a long agony. I invested in this stock excited Continue reading →

Stocks to buy in January 2015

When trading options or investing into stocks I always wanted to develop a system which would tell me which stocks to buy and which to avoid. I wanted as manual and automated system as possible to avoid emotion in selecting stocks. I wanted something you can almost program into a computer and forget about it. Continue reading →

Which stocks to buy in 2015?

Which stocks to buy in 2015?

I trade mostly dividend paying stocks, but watch a few companies which I consider good companies although they do not pay dividends. These I use in my portfolio as growth play stocks (for example a few months ago I did buy Alibaba (BABA) for this same reason). In my watch list I have approx. 100 Continue reading →

New purchase – Legacy Reserves LP (LGCY) MLP with 17.80% dividend yield (ROTH IRA)

New purchase - Legacy Reserves LP (LGCY) MLP with 17.80% dividend yield (ROTH IRA)

A recent sell off of energy stocks provided excellent opportunity to add a few good dividend stocks to investors’ portfolios for great prices which may not repeat again.
