  • Managing Your Portfolio - Weightings [View instapost]
    Love your blogs, Thank you! Have a question for you, Master Chowder: If you enter in every position with the same dollar amount, and its market value increases, at what percentage do you take your profits, or does the percentage(say 5% to 70%) matter less than the weighting.

  • Retirement Strategy For The 40-Somethings [View article]
    Enjoyed Doug! Most of the people I know, plan on working to supplement their retirement. Personally, I have seen this from my own parents. My mother worked at the same job part-time from 65 to 73(75 now.) My in laws did side jobs as well up to their 80's. I certainly could see a difference in my mother's physical ability within a year of her retiring full time. As for myself, I plan to work at something for as long as I can, but, to take more time off to enjoy things along the way, save and build wealth but have fun too. You never know how long you will live. Best Wishes, Linda

  • AT&T: Should I Stay Or Should I Go Now? [View article]
    Hey Eli,
    Well written and thought out. I too had the same question at times over past year. I finally decided to sell a portion of T, VZ and MO, to help diversify and balance my portfolio. The title of your article keeps playing that song in my head: Should I stay or should I go now, If I stay there will be trouble, if I go it will be double! Best Wishes, Linda

  • My Mad Method: At What Price Should I Buy? [View article]
    Miz and JD,
    I know, when I read the first couple of articles, I thought goodness gracious this guy is probably bouncing as he types! LOL, I get enjoyment and knowledge from reading them and kudos to your wife for teaching you how to harness that asset. By the way JD, still working on that spreadsheet, it doesn't come easy, I have to focus real hard. I was making progress last Thursday, then my grandkids showed up, had to stop and play. Look, its already Thursday again--its a hard life!!

    JD,
    Have to say, when I started reading your articles, I sensed your AADD and OCD in them. It is good that you embrace the traits and utilize them for your best interest. Enjoyed, best wishes!

  • The Real Better Advice For Seniors: Part II [View article]

    You are correct, it is very much a different world for parents and kids. Stand firm, Stand strong and keep "administering drug" program. You will succeed, take care of what you can each day, and when the day is done, place the rest where it belongs-in God's hands. I will keep you and yours in my prayers. I very much relate to your struggles, I am in North Houston, please feel free to email me if you ever need to vent.
    Rudester- I have never heard it put that way- very well said, and so true!

    eye-rolling, grunting ugly face attitude started at 10 with my daughter. Got the hand-held mirror out, called it her buddy, told her to look at her face when she talk to me, so she could see how ugly she looked. It worked--carrying that buddy around the house for 1 day cured her, all I had to say, do you need your "Buddy." HeHe--she gonna need a buddy for her daughter(3yrs) in the years to come.

    5+, hang tough, your doing right by your kids, no one else has their best interest at heart than you. She will respect you when she becomes an adult and that is worth a little verbal bruising. To boot, it is funny when the grandkids come along you can be supportive and have a good chuckle at times that your kids struggle trying to master parenthood. Best wishes!

  • A Retirement Reality: Save More, Spend Less And Invest In Dividend Stocks [View article]
    RS,
    Thanks for another good article! The only thing I would suggest different: Young adults should first save 3 to 6 months living expenses and keep a balance of 1000 in checking account. Once that is in place, all the "Life Happens" moments that arise will not hamper their retirement savings plan. This would eliminate temptations to cash out 401's or IRA's because of the unforeseen. It worked for us, we are not wealthy, but were able to handle bumps in the road. Best wishes to all!

    Very well written, Thank you for all the wonderful articles that you submit for our pleasure. Very good advice. I think I am struggling more with the sale side then the buy side, but, you and Robert may have convinced me to act.
