12-Oct-2016 DividendLab Newsletter

By Todd Johnson on 12-Oct-2016 7:11 am (9 months ago)Retirement Newsletter
Good morning, The overall market is soft. Part of this is technical (charts) and a stronger dollar than recent months. We have some oil stocks that have outperformed since purchase. We don’t have oil stocks bought when oil was over $100. Buying oil stocks, watching oil go to $30, and sitting tight is a losing proposition. It’s equivalent to holding $EMES from $150 to $4. What is the point of buying a stock if everything points to a lower stock price? I try to answer that question with our positions. ... (more)

26-Sep-2016 DividendLab Newsletter

By Todd Johnson on 26-Sep-2016 7:39 am (9 months ago)Retirement Newsletter
Hello, The market appears to have gained some steam. Ms. Yellen, and the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC), chose to not increase interest rates. The market does not like uncertainty. Interest rates explicitly assist in stock valuation. Overall stocks should decline if rates move higher. Bonds become more attractive as rates move higher. Bond valuations have an inverse relationship as interest rates move higher. This week I examine a conservative stock, sysco.com, with a focus upon dividend growth. ... (more)
