    As my account is in CAD$, my increase is more like 2.7%. Beats headline inflation anyway you look at it.

    Buying more Barrick, selling out-of-the-money calls on 1/2 my position. Have been doing ok with this for the past year or so.

  • Apple Investors Should Be More Cautious, Foxconn Data A False Positive  [View article]
    What rubbish thinking! You're still left with 70% of a higher dividend, so your income still goes up.

  • How Many Stocks Should Be In My DGI Portfolio?  [View article]
    My philosophy for the past 30 years has been to throw enough fresh sh.t (ie. savings) at the wall, and most of it will stick. I'm 65% top-notch equities (all being dripped), 35% corporate bonds (they saved me from selling everything in '08/'09).

    I had been "playing the market" for some time, but was never very good at it. Then it struck me - capital generates income, so let's accumulate capital.

    I now have over 100 positions. Do I bother monitoring all these stocks? Not on any in-depth level, anyway. I check once in a while to see which positions seem to be oversold and I buy more. And when I see a position getting ahead of itself, I sell out-of-the-money calls to juice returns. And I only do this once in a while, as I still run my own business full-time, have a wife, 3 kids, 2 cats and a dog at home! Seems like I'm only missing a mortgage!

    I have reached my goal, at 65 yo, of having enough income to live comfortably. If the market goes up, my kids will be happier; if it goes down, less so. But it is not my concern.

    I thank all SA writers and commentators who provide me with insight.

    Come on, DGI, one Lehman for every Pepsi? We'd be back to the stone ages if that were remotely true!

    I usually appreciate what you write, but this comment was true BS.

  • Apple: iPad Pro Is A Bust  [View article]
    On the go, I'm good with my Surface Pro 3 + Kindle Paperwhite. The Kindle to read while at the beech in Nha Trang, and the Surface for everything else. I love being able to connect my Sony a7r II to the Surface, downloading my photos, and sending my best shots to friends and family. Try THAT with an Apple product....
