  • How Investors Can Mitigate Their Portfolio Risk In Today's Tumultuous And Volatile World: Part 1 [View article]
    Chuck,
    AAII publishes the following "risk index" definition. What are your thoughts about its value"
    "The category risk index is the standard deviation of an ETF’s return divided by the standard deviation of return for the average ETF in the category. A value of 1.00 denotes average risk. Values above 1.00 indicate greater risk than average while values below 1.00 indicate less risk than average. Category risk indexes should only be compared within a category. Category risk index figures that are in the lowest 25% of all funds within the investment category are shown in boldface."

  • Super-Fast Growing Mid-Cap Growth Stocks With Explosive Returns [View article]
    Chuck,
    Enjoyed the article, and appreciated the interesting perspectives. The BRLI projected returns are probably optimistic due to current and prospective reductions in reimbursement for laboratory services by Medicare and private insurance companies. I'd guess if BRLI sees 10% growth in earnings over the next few years, the shareholders will jump for joy.

    As always, a very valuable and interesting article. Have you considered a "boot camp" seminar on reviewing the underlying principles of FAST graphs for those of us that would benefit? If so, please tell me where to sign up. Thanks.

  • Seeking Value, Growth And Income After The Recent Run Up? Check Out These Tech Titans [View article]
    Chuck,
    Thanks for a great article. I'm beginning to to least about FAST graphs and find your examples highly informative.

    I have a question about buying one of the tech sector ETF's versus buying individual tech stocks. Do you have any "rules of thumb"?

  • Dividend Challengers: 13 Increases Expected In The Next 11 Weeks [View article]
    Thanks for the reply; I appreciate it. What I'm trying to do is figure the relationship between the value of the stock (drop in stock price from ~ $91.50 on the day of the earnings call to ~$86.75 yesterday) and increased dividends. On the surface, it seems counter intuitive. Again, thanks for your comments.

  • Dividend Challengers: 13 Increases Expected In The Next 11 Weeks [View article]
    Thanks for the continuing help. It's always very thoughtful. My question concerns DE. When the stock dropped on the day of the earnings conference call last week, is management's response to the drop in stock price the reason for the projected increase in dividends?
