  • The March Rally May Indeed Have Legs [View article]
    Bravo DinNYC. I typically ignore the commenters because they harbor anger over their own dismal portfolios and take it out on anybody with bullish sentiment. What a good laugh I got this morning when I read about how young and misinformed I am (thank you folks) and then saw the GDP number and ensuing Dow +150. Its icing on my cake, and in my portfolio.

  • Financial Planning Industry: Lessons from the Current Recession [View article]
    Hi Dave,

    The second half of your comment does apply in my case. Most of my clients will never have a scenario in which they totally run out of money. They seek my advice on maximizing the growth and income from their investments to achieve the best lifestyle possible and leave money to their beneficiaries.

    The recent recession has delayed the retirement date of a few of my clients with under a million dollars saved for retirement. In those cases, options such as working longer, or maintaining a part-time job during retirement must be considered...

  • The Student Loan Crisis: How Bad Is It? [View article]
    Glad you guys can appreciate the article. I'm a financial advisor in New York and some of my clients have 50K+ in debt from college and grad school. By studying the amortization of these loans (especially the private ones) I'm sick to my stomach. A 50K loan mean 100K will ultimately be paid back.

  • Remaining Cautiously Optimistic On the Market [View article]
    Point taken--what I'm really getting at here isn't even the individual products. It's more the intellectual property and tremendous investment in education in the United States. Stocks love to price in momentum... but GDP stats don't.

  • Apple, Google: Avoiding the Overvaluation Trap [View article]
    Oy--I have to disagree with this article. Google is cheap when compared against hundreds of other companies with higher valuation ratios and less attractive growth prospects. One must look outside of antiquated rules and valuation ratios and check out what's going on in the real world. Google is the future, Apple is the future and Dell or Yahoo are yesterday's news (not value plays!). They just plain stink.
