  • Russia Has Come A Long Way From The 1998 Default [View article]
    Thanks for your good article that makes clear the substantial differences for Russia's economy in 2008 and today. Numerous people commented on SA that sanctions would have little effect, but they appear to have put substantial pressure on Putin that he has so far been unable to mitigate -- leaving him frustrated, angry, and embarrassed, and prompting him to throw his weight around with some naval and air force adventures that I suspect he hoped would intimidate those applying the sanctions. It faces difficulties now, but Russia's economy will recover.

  • Ignore ETF Expense Ratios? Maybe [View article]
    Your good and perceptive article is especially interesting to me after reading about some new genome etfs that offer no information about the funds' holdings, nothing about the funds' dividend yields, but .95% expense rations for each! Obviously, because the funds are new, the company does not know what its expenses will be, but they've pulled high ERs out of the air to start the process.

    Your assessment seems highly optimistic, but I hope that you are correct and that Barclays is as committed as you believe to accountability and performance.

  • Stock Picking Grades For Large Cap Blend Style Fund Managers [View article]
    While it is nice to see SCHD praised (long SCHD), it is ultimately not satisfying because the compliment arises in an article that irresponsibly claims that some etfs and mutual funds are investing in "bad stocks" while neglecting to define and then support the appropriateness of its criteria for "good" or "bad" stocks.

  • Today's Market: News And Earnings Fueling These Moves [View article]
    If you have a free hour or so, read the wikipedia history of the F-35's design, development, and, especially, frequent changes in design and their extraordinary costs -- not to mention comments by pilots of the dangers and challenges of flying the plane in potential combat. "Flying blind" is not an exaggeration here, and the costs to get to this point have been astronomical.

  • Buy TD Bank On Price Dips And Hold [View article]
    I agree that calling its stock price "decimated" is unwarranted, but TD is, as your article suggests, a good buy.
