  • Why I’m Buying this Great Resources Play

    By Matthew DiLallo - June 26, 2012 | Tickers: BIP, PCL, PCH, RYN, WY

    If you’ve followed me for any length of time, today’s trade for the “No Drip, No Mess” Portfolio should come as no surprise.  There are few companies that I’ve written more about because despite the boringness of their business, the management team is an excellent case study on how to manage a public company for the benefit of shareholders.  Not only are they the largest private landowner more »

  • Is Plum Creek’s Dividend Really Secure and Reliable?

    By Matthew DiLallo - June 21, 2012 | Tickers: PCL, PCH, RYN, WY

    I’ve been invested in Plum Creek (NYSE: PCL) for a long time, happily collecting dividend and option income along the way.  Shares for the most part have meandered along like a calm mountain stream; however, their underlying cash flows have been drying up.  The question that investors should be asking is if their dividend is as secure and reliable as management would seem to indicate.

  • The Three Mobile Plays I’m Watching

    By Matthew DiLallo - June 18, 2012 | Tickers: AMT 131116P00072500, AAPL, GOOG, INVN, NXPI, STM

    I am continuing to add exciting growth stocks to the watch list of my paper trading portfolio that I call the “No Drip, No Mess” Portfolio. Today I am adding three companies that are each involved in different aspects of the mobile industry. I recently added one company from my watch list to the portfolio in a trade that was accomplished using none of the original capital, as the investment more »

  • Why Timber Beats Silver and Gold

    By Matthew DiLallo - March 13, 2012 | Tickers: ABX, GG, PCL

    Silver and gold have I none, but what I do have, I want to share with you if you’re like most investors and concerned about looming inflation.  It’s not that I am against gold as an asset class, but as TV commercials and Cash for Gold stores sing its praises it makes me a little leery that gold will be there for me when I need it most more »

  • A Smart Way to Play the Smartphone Revolution

    By Matthew DiLallo - March 12, 2012 | Tickers: AMT 131116P00072500, AAPL, T, GOOG, VZ

    If you don’t have a smart phone you just don’t get what all the fuss is about. I admit, I didn’t get it either. Up until a year ago I only used my cell phone to make phone calls or to text my wife that I was on my way home for dinner. That changed dramatically when I joined the 35% of all adults in America that more »

  • Dividends, Sustainability and Annaly Capital Management

    By Tim Brugger - March 8, 2012 | Tickers: NLY, CIM, HTS

    In the world of Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS), Annaly Capital Management (NYSE: NLY) stands head and shoulders above the rest – and not just in size. With a market cap of about $15.6 billion Annaly is the largest in the industry by a wide margin. Chimera Investment (NYSE: CIM) at $3 billion and Hatteras Financial (NYSE: HTS) at $2.21 billion seem small in comparison.

  • Passively Achieving Your Goals With Options Part1

    By Nikhil Shamapant - December 27, 2011 | Tickers: AFL, HAS, KFN, PEP, PBR

    Part 1-Passive Strategies to Consistently Achieve Your Investment Goals

    Sounds like the perfect scam huh? That's why I added the word ‘passive.’ None of those penny stock pump and dump scammers advertise ‘passive investing.’ Why? No one looking for 1000% returns is at all passive about it. Actively managed portfolios tend to have higher goals for investment returns. Considering the fact that passively managed portfolios often don’t even more »

  • 10 High Yield MidCaps Going Ex-Dividend Next Week (December 26 - January 01)

    By DividendYields - December 25, 2011 | Tickers: NLY, CBL, CIM, EPR, LRY, MFA, PGH, PWE, PT, WIN

    Dividend stocks are wonderful because they increase my cash with regular payments. One major date in relation to the payment is the ex-dividend date. If you own a stock before this date, you get the next payment. This is very interesting because in the case of a high yield stock, I can earn at least one percent in cash for a short period of investing.

    This morning I woke up with a strange thought. I wanted to know what the most expensive stock per share was in the world. Naturally, I turned to Google to find my answers, since perusing every stock everywhere didn't seem like a wise use of my time (and yet, it did sound intriguing). Using a few key search phrases, followed by checking today's ticker, I can hereby proclaim more »
