  • Weighing The Week Ahead: What Are The Lessons From The Market Turmoil? [View article]
    After the fact, it is easy to say that the individual investor should have done nothing on Monday. However, on Monday, who knew that the rest of the week wasn't going to be much worse. I did not sell and I bought some which was lucky. But I also put in some hedges. That, obviously did not turn out well. But maybe they would this week.

  • The Sky Was Falling Into The Hands Of Astute Dividend Growth Investors: Did You Catch Any? [View article]
    Some of us got lucky, for now. I could have easily sold more of my stocks as the market was heading down but I resisted this time. I was able to get a few stocks on sale at the bottom but no big deal. I did, however, put in some hedges to avoid the worst case scenario. It did not happen as the market largely corrected upwards. But now I am stuck with a decision as to whether I should cut or eliminate my hedges. If the market continues up, of course, these hedges will reduce my gains. But I do not see anyone calling all clear. Right now I am more worried about downside than upside risk as I continue to feel a correction or a bear market is overdue. But we just had a correction. Right?

    Will these damn stocks ever reach a bottom. Previous projections of returns with MORl have been wildly off the mark.

    The stock was great until recently. Now my return is negative including the dividend.

  • How Low Can This Market Go? [View article]
    To be honest, we really do not know how fast China is growing. But that is not new. Lack of transparency is equals uncertainty equals anxiety equals market volatility. But we just have to adjust to that reality.

  • How Low Can This Market Go? [View article]
    I have been selling here and there for a month but cannot say I sold as much as I should have. I also did some hedging on Apple and sold half of my Apple before the shit hit the fan. Yesterday, I sold another stock and did some hedging on the overall market. For most of the day, I felt like I had over hedged but as it turns out my hedge was a good decision. I was up a fairly good bit today so it seems to be working so far. I have not gotten through this unscathed but have done better than if I had just ignored the market.

    I am not claiming any special knowledge but I have just made a decision I am not going to take the risk that I have to ride this puppy down any further Been there, done that, and it did not work out. No, you can't time the market but you can steps to reduce a worst case scenario. The key here is to not be afraid to sell, even your losers.

  • American Capital Agency Sells Off While Treasury Bonds Rally - Investors Don't Understand MREITs [View article]
    I have wondered for awhile what would happen to the MREITs with an overall market downturn. They seem to be doing better than the overall market but most of them are still down.

    The Government will not run up the debt. There is no way this congress will increase government spending as they do not even believer that government spending has any positive impact on GDP.

    I expect an apocalypse very soon. And why not? Also, some scientists expect the northwest to be devastated by earthquakes very soon. Light up a lucky and enjoy the ride.
