Q: Good morning,

I know there are risks with owning Verizon right now, but with another recent dividend increase (now 17 consecutive years of increases), forward PE ~ 7.0, and a dividend yield approaching ~ 8%, do you think there is merit in buying for an income investor?

Q: I'm up over 200% on CELH (thanks!) and although I don't see any red flags, I think it's time to trim back from an 11% holding. I've had LMN on my watch list for some time, do you think trimming CELH and buying LMN would give me a similar growth profile stock? Does LMN also trade on the US markets so I could keep my currency in USD?

I want to add 1 of the following consumer related US companies to an income portfolio with some growth:

COST (good growth, very small dividend)
WMT (good growth, small dividend)
AMZN (Good growth, No dividend)
KVUE (good products, good dividend, not as much growth)

Please review them, rank them in order of preference for a long term hold. If you have a better alternative, please include it.

Please deduct 5 credits, 1 for each company and 1 for the other possibility.

I look forward to your review.

Q: Hi Guys,

What do you think of my 12 stocks that are performing poorly in a hot market like we're in so far this yr.

Is it the sectors they're in or are have they peaked and are expensive.

Buy more, trim or sell them all ?

Do you add to these or sell them?



Thank you & Happy New yr!

Q: The initial investment on these and others has doubled. I do not require the funds immediately. I know these are outstanding companies. Each makes up 2% to 3% of the portfolio that is up by 10.5%. In this environment do you still abide by the statement "let the winners run", even to this extent. Should they be trimmed back to the initial cost, or should they be replaced? There are sixty positions in the portfolio balanced through all 11 sectors. I am a 77 year old dividend value investor.
Thank you for all your great input
