Discussion of holdings and performance

September was a solid month for the Dividend Growth portfolio, as it retuned 1.02% for the month. This underperformed the 1.93% return for the S&P 500, but the portfolio also started the month with a larger-than-usual allocation to cash.

The portfolio remains moderately cash heavy, with 10% allocated to cash as of month end. But as we enter the seasonally strong November to April period, I will look to get fully invested over the course of the next month, market conditions allowing.

The true standout performers in September were our two automakers, General Motors (GM) and Ford (F), which

As they say, it ain't over until the fat lady sings, and we still have another half of the year left to go

The following is an excerpt from The 7 Best Dividend Stocks to Buy for Q3 and Beyond.

The theme for the first half of 2017 was something to the effect of “Buy (AMZN) and dump pretty much everything else.”

At least that’s what it seemed like. Recent pullback aside, 2017 has broadly been a great year for tech … but it has been a lousy year for “old economy” stocks like energy, retail and autos, and for dividend stocks in general.

But as they say, it ain’t over until the fat lady sings, and we still have

A checklist-driven framework can help investors make smarter decisions

Many readers must undoubtedly be familiar with Investment checklists. Famed investors such as Charlie Munger and Mohnish Pabrai have used them to structure their buy decisions. This article will explain my checklist structure so the readers can apply the underlying mental model to their buy decisions.

In trying to come up with the structure, I faced the challenge of deciding what the most important checklist items should be. After years of refining, I am currently at a point where I have just seven checklist items –Â not too many and yet just enough for me to help decide whether

“Price is what you pay. Value is what you get”

Warren Buffett

“Price” and “value” are often two very different things. Though a single share cost more than $200,000, Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway (BRK-A) is considered a value stock by many. Yet Twitter (TWTR), which trades hands for just $35 per share, is often called a bubble stock.

Yet low-priced stocks are a hunting ground for some very smart, very successful investors. Joel Tillinghast, manager of the Fidelity Low-Priced Stock Fund (FLPSX), is one of the most successful fund managers of his generation, and he invest

Part of my job as an advisor is helping my clients sort out their finances. But even though I do this professionally, I sometimes have a hard time sorting out my own finances because my expenses are out of sync with my income. My regular expenses tend to be monthly, whereas my income is mostly paid quarterly.

That’s always been a major source of frustration to me, and it is no doubt a major source of frustration to millions of retirees living off of their investments. Bonds generally pay interest just twice per year, and most companies pay dividends quarterly.

Daivd Tepper is probably the best performing hedge fund manager of the last decade. His timing has been perfect. He bet the farm into financial stocks in 2009 as they were beaten down, and made multiple billions almost every year since. But now he is selling out a lot of positions. Does he see something that others don’t?

David Tepper (Trades, Portfolio) buys only one small position during the fourth quarter, which is the beaten down American Realty Capital Properties Inc. He sold almost everything else, including Citigroup Inc, Halliburton Co, Mohawk Industries Inc,

Dear Members of the Board:

Corvex Management and its affiliated funds collectively own an aggregate of over 70 million shares of ARCP, representing approximately $650 million of ownership and 7.7% of the common stock, making us the Company’s second largest stockholder.

We have repeatedly stressed to you the importance of adding shareholder representatives to the Board at a time when the most far reaching of decisions of any company’s existence are being made. We believe shareholder representation is of utmost importance given the enormity of the change that has occurred at ARCP and to ensure that what happened here simply

It’s another year, which is another huge opportunity in front of us to move closer to the versions of ourselves we want to be. Like I recently discussed, I believe there’s a future methat’s already financially independent, waiting for the me of today to reach this eventuality.

However, I still need to keep walking the path if I want to get to that eventuality. It’s not going to happen magically. Believing in yourself is extremely important, but execution is just as critical.

So I set SMART goals at the beginning of every year. And I not only set

American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP) make some announcements today that I feared might be coming. The board of directors is suspending the dividend pending the release of its third quarter and year-end results and will reinstate it after doing a thorough review.

Shares are down today by about 3% on the news implying that the cut was already mostly priced in.

In 5 Monthly Dividend Stocks for 2015, I acknowledged the risk that ARCP would reduce its dividend by 5%-10%. Given the company’s desire to reduce debt and its statement that it would pay a dividend “in line

Two stock sales in less than a month. What is going on around here? Have I lost my marbles?

I certainly hope not.

Although I’m a buy-and-hold investor, the occasional sale is necessary if it means making the portfolio better over the long run. Some of my past sales have turned out well, some have not. All in all, I have to make a decision with all known data at the time, and hindsight is of course 20/20.

I often say that I look at every stock in my portfolio like a fruit-bearing branch on my dividend tree. And

With the market looking wobbly this December, the need to get paid in cold, hard cash has never been more apparent. If you are already in retirement, selling portfolio positions in a declining market to meet your living expenses is, for lack of better word, scary. Living off of dividend and interest income makes for a far less stressful retirement.

But while I am a major believer in dividend investing, there has always been one major disconnect with it: most of us pay our bills on a monthly cycle, yet our dividend checks arrive only once per quarter or, in

A long-time reader passed on a good research report published by Ladenburg Thalmann that comparedAmerican Realty Capital Properties (ARCP) to its peers in the net-lease retail REIT space. These numbers were as of October 29 and use a closing price of $10.00 for ARCP. As I’m writing this, ARCP is trading under $8.00 following the news that the sale of Cole Capital Partners and Cole Capital Advisors to RCS Capital had fallen through. So, ARCP is now roughly 20% cheaper than the table below suggests:

Here’s a headline you never want to see:

American Realty Capital Properties insider just disposed of 20,000 shares$ARCP

— Conference Call Transcripts (@cctranscripts) Oct. 30 at 06:20 PM

That headline was particularly jarring to me because I had specifically listed consistent insider buying as a reason to give American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP) the benefit of the doubt after its accounting bomb was dropped earlier this week. Ten different ARCP insiders—including the company’s general counsel—have purchased a combined $3 million since January of this year.

So, a disposal of 20,000

It’s never a good sign when a company’s CFO and top accountant abruptly resign at the same time “accounting irregularities” are announced, but that’s exactly what happened at American Realty Capital Properties (ARCP) on Wednesday morning. We’ll jump into that shortly. But first, let’s jump to the Fed.
