Updated: 05.05.13 Hello, My name is Todd Johnson. I’m a family man, sports fiend, health nut, technology buff, long-time stock investor and a very lucky mountain climber – hardly enough to completely distinguish me from many 50 year-old males living in Albuquerque, or anywhere else for that... More

  • Open Invitation: Hedging & Investing In A Rising Interest Rate Environment – Dividend Lab Webinar On August 21st 2 comments
    Aug 21, 2013 5:00 PM

    08.19.13 evening

    Hi Folks, I continue to rebalance our portfolio. The recent 10-Year Bond movement was even greater than I expected - but we were positioned correctly with hedges. TJ 08.19.13

    Please register for Dividend Lab Webinar: Aug 21st 3:00 PM MST - 4:00 PM MST on Aug 21, 2013 3:00 PM MDT at:

    We will discuss the recent market events: 1) interest rate trend and implications; 2) debating the merits of any investment.

    I believe we have our largest portfolio allocations in the best names. We have interest rate specific hedges. We also have market hedges.

    What I am doing: avoiding utilities, MLP's, REIT's, junk debt, long-duration debt, BDC's, preferred stocks, mREITs.

    Nobody knows what will happen after Bernanke's 5-year run of QE - and legally manipulating interest rates downward. This has never happened before. I continue to reposition our portfolio to benefit and make money on the current environment. I have sent out adjustments to our portfolio. I am still thinking about some names I own - and am likely to sell. If I am right, I can enter later at a more attractive price.

    After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
