Slightly off topic, but I thought I would plug this question in here for those who have an interest in talking about stocks.....

Any thoughts on T now?

I have been buying AT&T every time it dips below the price that makes the dividend over 5%. Right now at 36 it's a 5.39% dividend. I started buying it when it was 32, sold half when it hit 41 and have been buying more on every pull back. Solid company, great dividend, and will continue to buy.

Have done the same purchasing, but not the same selling. Just purchased and enjoyed.

There is more to it than the amount of fees. If my person changes 1%, but I get 8% gain after all fees and costs and you have no fees but only get 4%, then who wins?


If you are getting 8% return, and someone else is getting 4%, in the long run, you are almost assuredly taking more risk. Balanced index funds are the way to go unless you are the one in a million investor that is smarter than the overall market. This year's winning stock picker is next year's forgotten under performer.

I know I did a bit of a segue, but thank you to those who commented on T. The fact that T is getting beat up a little right now has my attention. I think it visited its 52-week low today.

T is a great longtime hold for dividend income.

I had a buy order for 1000 hares at $35.50 but it only got down to $35.82. Dividend at 5.63% at that price. Maybe it will dip again today. Not many places you can get that return with an upside potential on the stock. PE at 17.6 makes it a great buy in this market. S&P PE is around 22 to 23 right now.

It would be nice to get a steady 9.9% a year ad infinitum. Those 8% a year performance charts that advisors showed me 15 years ago didn't take into account the "tech bubble", Fed raising rates, Fed lowering rates, "the Great Recession". If you average the ups and downs over a 15 year period and never take a withdrawal 6% annualized return seems to be more realistic.
Don't forget that your IRA rules will force you into RMDs at 70.5 wether you want or need the withdrawals.

The dividends from 1,000 shares of T would cover one's amenity fees (before taxes, if any).
