    For dividends I've stopped looking at individual stocks. I like closed end funds.

    MFD
    it's an infrastructure/utility dividend income fund. At .33 quarterly it's paying 10.22% with a current s/p of $11.69
    the five year range is $10 to just over $18 which is what it's suppose to do...so, pretty much strictly income for this.
    Also, utilities seem to be 'rising interest rates' sensitive.

    Uranium is a fun market with the spook of disaster always lurking. I actually did really well buying UEC and URG
    at the bottom and sold both recently for a s/t gain. A couple hundred on URG but UEC I bought all under .97 cents
    and sold between 1.08 and 1.35 for afewk. I only have UUUU now.

    No U.S. telecoms, no U.S. headquartered companies for me.

    I bought Spark New Zealand Ltd. It has a current div yield of 8.14%

    It's home listing is obviously on the New Zealand stock exchange so all it's other listings (AU, US, Germany) key off the
    share price there. Monday in New Zealand is on. https://www.nzx.com/markets/NZSX/securities/SPK

    It has a U.S OTC listing SPKKY which is a sponsored ADR that is fairly active at 5/1 meaning 5 shares of SPK.NZX = 1 share of SPKKY on the OTC/US
    Friday SPKKY closed at $12.64 with volume at 61,503 http://web.tmxmoney.com/quote.php?qm_symbol=SPKKY:US There's also an extremely, thinly traded non sponsored ADR symbol NZTCF. I do not know who makes the market. I have shares under both symbols.

    I also have Telstra (Australian) 6.01% div yield currently. Sponsored ADR ticker TLSYY Friday $19.64 with 52,722 shares. Unsponsored TTARF 1 to 1
    I only own the sponsored on this.

    The multi-unit rentals I bought (dirt cheap) in the early 90's have kept a steady cash flow to this day. I can't say as much about any other "investments" I've made. I was lucky to to buy gold under $900 and silver under $15... and needing to sell them when they were near their highs...

    Both of these telcos got hit on their respective home markets (16th) SPK down .15nzd = .11usd so with
    their U.S. ADR made up of 5 common shares NZ that would be a possible drop of .55 cents US for SPKKY.

    Telstra is worse. HY earnings were a disaster. TLS.AX shed .34aud = .26usd same as SPK 5/1 so .26X5=1.30usd for
    a possible drop for TLSYY when the U.S. markets open.

    I own both of these and they act whacky. Some times they go up for half the day before konking out. Wait and see.

    The hell with PMs, stocks, real estate; I've done better buying that right there than all of it combined. Now, if I just would have had enough sense to invest some real money into ammo speculation, I would be setting pretty.
