re: Louisiana home insurance question - Ramblin Wreck
The person doing the quote was confused. She wasn’t sure and had to confirm I would be covered for both. I didn’t see how you could get a mortgage without coverage for both. Thought that was weird, but hey....I did move to Louisiana. You never know. LOL...

Louisiana home insurance question - Ramblin Wreck
I moved here about a year ago and pretty much duplicated the coverage I had in Texas. I’m trying to update some coverage and my agent tells me I can either have tropical storm coverage or wind storm coverage, not both. Apparently in Louisiana you can be covered by a named storm or a tornado, not b...

re: Stocks still below 60% of 52 week high with dividends over 5% - Ramblin Wreck
[quote]How did you get T in this? The poster said 60% of 52 week high which is $39.70. Currently the stock is at $30.35 or 76% of the high. I suspect the individual was looking for things that had been beaten down a bit more. Not sure if I am missing something.[/quote] Yep, I am looking for thing...

re: Stocks still below 60% of 52 week high with dividends over 5% - Ramblin Wreck
I did a double take on WMC when I entered it on my spreadsheet and then realized they suspended their dividend in 2019. The 43% dividend looked too good to be true.....and then of course it actually was. LOL...

Thanks - 3 out of the 4 I listed are energy stocks. Wells Fargo being the exception. ET looks very tempting based on the dividend. Time to do some research....

Best drill for driving screws - Ramblin Wreck
Rebuilding a deck and dock. Decided to replace my drill, so bought an inexpensive Dewalt at Lowe’s for about $100. It is a corded 8 amp with switch that lets you switch to hammer drill mode. I’m using it to drive 3 inch screws. After a short time of use, I get a puff of smoke, but it still works...

re: Buying a House/Giving up mineral rights? - Ramblin Wreck
I have a commercial property in a small town about 45 minutes south of San Antonio. The building came with a vacant lot next to it. The lot is in a low area and pretty useless. I kept trying to sell it with no one interested just to avoid having to get it mowed. I even considered trying to give ...

re: Tell me about CTL - historically good dividends, any concern? - Ramblin Wreck
Thanks, good summary. Trying to decide how much I want to shift from growth stocks to dividend stocks in future buys. I’ve been buying BP, XOM, EQM, and WFC to try and capture both. Figured CTL wouldn’t gain a lot in value versus those, but the dividends looked good based on current price....

re: Tell me about CTL - historically good dividends, any concern? - Ramblin Wreck
I just went back a few years. Wasn’t sure if there was a reason the stock dropped prior to COVID. The dividends seem to be about the same percentage when the stock was priced higher. At 10% dividends, it is a good deal presently. ...
