  • The Near-Retiree: Let's Be Careful Out There [View article]
    "The little guy can't compete with the professional trader."

    You don't have to compete with the professional trader.
    His goals are not your goals.
    You can achieve your goals no matter what any other person does.

  • The Near-Retiree: Let's Be Careful Out There [View article]
    "The rationale for purchasing these stocks is tempered by the market's signal that value is going down."

    I look at it differently.
    The market's signal is that the PRICE is going down.
    Value is in the eye of the beholder.
    If I can pay less tomorrow than I did yesterday for the same share of stock, then I am actually getting MORE value for my money.

    "I should allow for inflation? I'm not sure I know what you mean."

    Yes, you do:

    Thanks for the best laugh of the day!

    Imagine someone telling CHOWDER he needs to open his eyes and mind.

    You clearly don't know Chowder.

  • Seeking Alpha Contributors And Commenters Pick The Best Dividend Growers For The Next 5 Years [View article]
    "Most retirees cannot survive on a 3%-5% yield."

    It depends.
    On what principal is that yield based on?
    3%-5% of $5,000,000 is probably enough.

    I don't look at yield.
    I look at dollars.
    Does my portfolio produce enough dollars for me to pay my expenses?

    TF, if you're looking for CAGR over many years, I have that:

    Choose the year, and you will see a list of companies sorted by decreasing CAGR.

    Pen, I commented above that if I had more courage, I would buy right now.

    Sigh ... What's a poor investor to do? :-)

    Thanks for visiting,

    Craig, I'm hoping that the relative stability in the payout ratio will prevent a dividend cut, but of course you might be right.

    Thanks for your thoughts!

    Paper, TGH is just a few percent of my overall portfolio, so I am not overweighted in it.

    If I had more courage, I would buy more now, but I just have enough courage to hold. :-)

    Thanks for writing,

    Hi Ted,

    Good article! I will add a comment there. Thanks for the lead.

    I agree with you, all the quantitative data in the world doesn't help, when one needs to make a qualitative decision.

    Thanks for reading my article!
