  1. A stock that I never recall you ever mention is Phillip Morris (PM)? In regards to the model portfolio do you plan on considering this stock as an investment?

    Lots of people won't touch this stock as we all know what cigarettes do to people healthwise and financially.

  2. Tobacco pays great dividends even in this day and age and international is where you want to look for. However for me I will not invest in cigarette companies as a personal choice due to the damage they cause to people. I don't hold any ill regards to anyone who does though.

  3. I recently discovered pulling myself up. I am only at the 11th week of your blog but you have me capture like going through seasons of a prior years TV program. Am I to wait until I am up to present date before I invest in dividends? I am raking in the advice and generally agree with the directions/decision you have had. thanks,

    1. Thanks for the compliment. I would say a minimum I would do is go through the dividend investing series of videos (link in the upper right). Apart from that it depends on your level of experience in the markets. Each investment I have a video talking about why I bought it that might help too.
