Thank you for your suggestions - what do you think of Ed versus NI? If I were only to choose one of these for the electrical allocation along with DU?
So the list would then look like:
TEG 8.00%
FTR 14.00%
VOD 8.00%
ATO 5.00%
SE 5.7%
CTL 9.40%
ATR 4.2%
DU 6.2%
ED 6.5% or NI at7.0%
HNZ 4.5%
NAT 11.0%
That would leave room for 3 additions - my goal is 15 so I can reasonably keep eye on on them. any additional suggestions?
An aside here: My mom was bedridden from age 37 to 70 and I took care of her- she had 7 stocks- small investment at the time - 20,000 but it provided supplemental income for her and her needs - so I consider choices made here as very important!!!
Thanks for all the wonderful postings here as well - as a soon to be 57 year old gal I am learning here EVERY day! Thanks all!!!!
