WRE - Washington Real Estate Investment Trust

Deciding on my first pick, was I going to go flashy or conservative with my pick so I will do both.  The stock I have loved forever and has over the history of Wall Street paid the most consecutive dividend every quarter.  So I pick Washington Real Estate Investment Trust:


WRE - Washington Real Estate Investment Trust
September 22, 2017 close=  $32.60
Year Range = $27.65-$33.96
Dividend= $1.20

WRE mainly invests in commercial properties around the Alexandria, Virginia and Washington D.C. metropolitan areas.  With government agencies alone they maintain a high occupancy in their buildings.  The company is also loved by hedge funds and institutional investors being 86% institutionally owned.  Love when the big boys agree with me!  The real reason to own WRE is for the dividend, especially if you can put this into a share builder or drip type brokerage account that will purchase additional shares for you with the dividend.  Buy WRE at any price, you are not buying it for the share price you are buying it for the dividend.  Over time the dividend will pay 4%-6% return on investment.  Not the most exciting stock in the world but its about making money over time.

I understand trying to purchase a stock that has a $32 price tag to get 100 shares is a big deal.  you want to purchase enough so that over time you make money and do not lose your profit on brokerage commissions, so if your broke but want more shares try this stock:

IRET - Investors Real Estate Trust
September 22, 2017 close = $5.81
Year Range = $5.60-$7.30
Dividend = $0.28

Same as above with WRE, buying for the dividend.  IRET is 55% institutional owned and invests in commercial properties and healthcare centers int he upper Midwest mainly North Dakota and Minnesota.

What is the Trumpty Dumpty Poem? Question from Readers Richard & Shannon

Richard & Shannon of Albuquerque, NM I am glad you asked that question.  I can see that the over 1,000 times I have posted this to social media it has seemed to take of and obviously I am able to borrow this graffic from someone who copied my poem.  I have seen variations of it but I can assure you mine is the original it dates dack to around March of 2017.

I did however not coin the phrase Trumpty Dumpty this was done by another Albuquerque resident that called into my friend Radio Talk Show host Norman Goldman (we met through our mutual friend Ed Schultz who just recently passed R.I.P.) you can listen to his show on AM 1350 in Albuquerque from 4-7pm Mountain (for the rest of the country check his website).  I wish I remembered the ladies name.  I first posted the peom on my Facebook page the day after the lady stated it on the show so if anyone claims copyright I can prove them wrong I wrote this enjoy"

Homeless and Living with Covid 19 ~ My Personal Story

So I was diagnosed with Corona Virus on May 25th, 2020 at Martin Luther King Hospital in South Central Los Angeles. I arrived at the emergency room at 8:00am in the morning, after being triaged they suspected myself and two other gentlemen from the sober living recovery home where I was staying did indeed have the virus. So while we waited for the results which would take two hours I was scared my worst nightmare would come true I would have it, be homeless again and tossed out into the street.
     The two hours was an excruciating long time I was petrified, scared and facing the overall fact this may be it I might die. Then I remembered I have been through this before.  The first time I went in for my AIDS test back in 1986 after having been all over Europe and with many a man, I was back in my hometown in Waukesha Wisconsin and was the first ever patient at Waukesha Memorial Hospital to have the AIDS test administered. The girl in the laboratory was my friend from high school…

Liars and Buyer's and Bear's oh My!!!!!!!!! The Dow drops another 1000 points!

VS. 

If you have read my previous articles over the last couple of days I said I would be more worried if the DJIA corrected 2600 points in one day (10%)  well as of today that leaves us around 2,100 points off last week Wednesdays open.  I am still not in a panic and here is why:
Bulls vs. Bears
I'm looking at you right now stop talking to your dog and trying to make his head tilt to the side so you can do the Scooby Doo voice and say "Huh?"
What are they? Why do people on Wall Street keep referring too all these Bull markets, all these Bear Markets?  Why do people on Wall Street go South most of the time, North every so often but never East and West? These are terms that Wall Street users identify certain periods of time.  A "Bull" market is one that is charging upward (like a Bull lifting its horns upwards no end in site) while a "Bear" market means things are on the way down (like a bear striking with its claws downward)  this is also considere…
