    MoneyUnbinding: Thank you for your kind words. I think some of the logic and discipline I bring to my investing comes from my day job as a professor, where those qualities are important for research and teaching. I have also noticed that my writing style here is influenced by the scientific writing I do.

    GAP67: Thanks for your comment. From time to time I've looked at other stocks in the financial sector, such as Canadian banks (BMO, BNS, CM, RY, TD) and credit card companies (V, MA; also AXP and DFS). I still remember passing on V when it was trading at around $90 pre-split; it's one of my largest missed opportunities from a total return perspective. Fortunately, I've done reasonably well despite such misses.

    Ukko: It's good to hear that you're enjoying a comfortable retirement -- the ultimate goal of the investing I'm doing today is to set myself up for a similar future.

    edgi: Thanks for the suggestion (and see my reply to Global View). At this time, I consider it a bit too risky, but as I mentioned in my article, the plan is not set in stone and I might reconsider my investment options as I make progress.

    Global View: Thanks for the suggestion, which also occurred to me. However, I am cognizant of the fact that past performance is not necessarily predictive of future results, so there is always the risk that the stable performance of T will change over the next few years. At this early stage of the house fund saving plan, my preference is to stick with non-stock investments.

    sandman: Thanks for the suggestion. I have considered (and I am still thinking about) alternative possibilities for conservative investment of my house fund money. Can you elaborate on the types of bonds that make up your bond ladder?

    fsamgriggs: Thanks for your comment. I was fortunate to buy JNJ when it was trading at or slightly below fair value back in the fall of 2011. I would welcome an opportunity to increase my position; my target price is around $90.

    Like you, review articles also give me food for thought when it comes to considering stocks for my portfolio. I'm glad you found some insight in my article.
