Q: Many companies have become addicted to low interest rates over the last decade. Assuming that interest rates stay where they are for years to come (a rate once considered somewhat "normal"), do you see any problem with any of these blue chip stocks maintaining their dividend ? I'm sure over the course of the next 5 years or so some of these companies will need to renew debt at higher rates.

Q: In my RIF, the SLF position is now 5.5%. I have a very small starter position (< 1%) in BRK-NE. Thinking of reducing SLF by 1.5% and putting it into BRK . I realize there will be an overall reduction in dividend from the reduced SLF position but am anticipating growth in BRK will more than offset this issue . Any concerns on such a move ?
