I’d avoid it After the ex-dividend date, because the company has run from one scandal to another- admittedly they have sold off some of the bad actors.
Normally a stock must open down the amount of the dividend on the x-dividend date. This can trigger computer selling which forces the price even lower.

If the company is doing a buy-back to take the company private again this may be a ploy. I do not know. I learned long ago to stay away from such buys.

I do not like the concept anyway. IMO it is the providers job to protect it customers.

pinetree64 I consult the Drip Investing Resource Guide website. There is a spreadsheet with lots of data. I try to buy stocks that yield 3%+ and raise their dividends each year. I have about 30 stocks in this portion of my portfolio. The key is to diversify. When JPM, JP Morgan, is down, KMB, Kimberly Clark, is up... Latest purchase was SLB, Schlumberger, beat down oil stock. To boost earnings I sell options on many of stocks. T, VZ, CXV and XOM are good yielders but expensive. The issue now is that many stocks are expensive, utilizes are expensive. Regions Financial my be worth a look.

Not a great reason to make an investment decision, but there are other choices.

Does anyone have any thoughts around dividend funds:

FEQIX
FDGFX

FEQIX holds Chevron, Berkshire Hathaway, and other big names. You would have to contend with the expense ratios due them being actively managed funds, but it would be a way to diversify across a number of equities that pay healthy dividends. I'm working within my IRAs, so I'm after more of a "set it and forget it" approach.

Thanks!
Berkshire Hathaway BRK-A $333,800 per share I am impressed.

Do you fear a big loss when Buffett or even Munger dies?

I have owned Chevron off and on. FEQIX looks like it may have performed well for you but I have never seek the point of the name. It pays a yield of 1.7% hardly an income investment. With its growth performance I would not be complaining so hats off.

I get paranoid when my holding in one company exceeds $100K I cannot imagine being comfortable with over three times that in one share of one company. I guess that is why I am not rich.

That policy assumes that fundamentals will not change.

I think you are referring to a mutual fund rather than a stock index.

John Galt 1 A thought on high dividend stocks.

Often the dividend is high because the company cant find any new areas to spend it's profits in. Often companies like these see their stock prices drop slowly drop so you may be getting a high dividend but the value of the stock doesn't increase as fast or sometimes slowly drops reducing your total return.

goat daddy A buddy at work said "before you purchase the stock, think of the price you wish to sell it" When that time comes sell it. Also before you sell, have your next purchase lined up. Never day trade. And people who state they are in for the long run usually are behind. Even my dividend stocks have a sell point. My advice, do your homework and don't rely advice of anyone.

I haven't read the thread in it's entirety yet, but if we're talking index funds or ETFs that changes the entire conversation. Over on Bogleheads you can read about the allocation theory based on Vanguard funds as an example. My ROTH is allocated in this manner and is up quite nicely over it's life.

Are we talking high yield individual stocks or are ETFs of interest to the OP as well?

Iamfarticus One of the best advice I have ever gotten is, never fall in love with a stock. It can cloud your judgement and you may wind up holding it for the wrong reasons even if it performs poorly.

AngryRed I'm pretty heavy in Ford, and while the dividend is nice my initial investment is down 40% and it's been a volatile ride.

I used to swear by Kroeger (less than 3% div now) but ever since Amazon bought whole foods it crashes every time Jeff Bezos sneezes.

Checkout O, in contrast to the other 2 I've done extremely well and have my grandsons college fund allocated to a percent. The REIT game is a bit convoluted but if you do some research you'll see O does things a little differently. Just my 2c!

52 Week Range: $7.41 - $10.56

Macy's: $1.51 annual dividend (9.69%)
Earnings Per Share (08/14/2019): $3.2286
52 Week Range: $14.11 - $38.35
I am not sure I could go with Macy's only because the sector is so out of favor.

I do not often believe in reverse splits but I think Ford would do better with one. When a stock gets below $10 there are too many that just play with it. That causes the big boys to stay away. IMO No real recent research none to back the opinion.

I agree it's not flashy or sexy, but take a pole of who here doesn't have grid power, and that's THIS group, and that's probably >99% of us.

Monopoly + essential service = Good sector.
Up to a point EVs make the grid more efficient ( using base load at night plus the T&D grid can handle more power) but if they really take off, you will have a shortage of night time power/ have to upgrade the distribution network. We are a long way from that.

Plus they are tied to cheap natural gas. Both as a cheap fuel and for lower carbon emissions.

Which is why I like SO with 2 new reactors coming on line.

I see the electric utility companies under-fire in many states. Some restrict them then hold them liable, others are dictating renewables at unrealistic schedules.

A lot depends on the particular ETF you choose and their investing rules. I was once in XLU got out back in late '17 and earlier this year-late last got back in with 3 companies SO, DUK, & D.

The way I make money is to invest not to lose money. I may not make as much as some but I do not lose as much as many.

I’ve gotten 5% on capital gains with total gains almost 10% ( on purchased shares, probally that on DRIP shares as well.) I’ll ride out the short term drama.
