  • Basic ETF Portfolio To Start 2012 [View article]
    Why not add columns showing date, price, past 12 mos dividend, yield, estimated next 12 months dividend, yield.

    This would help those interested in investing in stocks with management who have n interest in making growth of dividends an important component in an investor's total return - and this is important to the significantly fast growing number of investors - including retired investors, seeking a growing income stream from their investments.

  • Deflation's Back, And Stocks Just Don't Get It [View article]
    Good for what not to do
    Now the hard choice: which global security classes and industry/etfs to own for a reasonably long deflationary period of time - to research and take advantage of year end opportunities...

  • Find Lower Market Volatility In A Basket Of MLPs [View article]
    What - if any - are the tax ramifications associated with owning an MLP or a ETF or ETN consisting of MLPs in an IRA or Roth IRA ?
    any references for such guidance? Any UBTI issues if held in an IRA?

  • The Next Week Will Define The Eurozone's Future [View article]
    Do you remember the extreme market volatility every time Sec State Kissinger left WDC?
    The markets moment to moment volatile reaction to every meeting?
    I believe these next 5 days will move in anticipation of what is said as well as
    what is not said regarding with whom and when Sec Treasury Geithner is meeting during his travels
    to Frankfurt, Berlin, Paris, Marseille and Milan.
    And, of course, let's not forget Friday's climactic European Union summit in Brussels.
    Any bets?

    From POLITICO: DRIVING THE WORLD: 5 DAYS TO SAVE THE EURO - "Geithner to urge Europe leaders to take action," by Reuters' Glenn Somerville and David Lawder: "Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner is set to urge key European officials to take decisive action next week at a make-or-break summit to prevent a debt crisis from turning into runaway contagion. ... Geithner will meet French President Nicolas Sarkozy, new Italian Prime Minister Mario Monti, and Spanish Prime Minister-elect Mariano Rajoy on the [Tue.-Thu.] trip, which will include stops inFrankfurt, Berlin, Paris, Marseille and Milan [ahead of Friday's climactic] European Union summit" in Brussels.

  • Achieving Positive Returns in This Market [View article]
    Discuss research if any on the use of stops or stop limits - more specifically following stops - or use them at levels representing price breaks below support or MA lines - to prevent losses greater than 10% - or whatever - any one position in the portfolio.

  • Why Ford Shares Are A Big Buy Now [View article]
    Not sure if I'd be short F but it makes sense to be very much aware that any stock which can go UP 15% from $9.05 to ABOVE the 50 day Moving Average Line to 10.50 in "only two days", can very easily go DOWN - if/when it breaks below the 50 Day ML (at 10.89) to at least retest the low - 9.05 in "only 2 days" - all it would take in this GLOBAL market environment would be another one or two BIG RED (down volume) days like there were in late October - down a full point in "only two days"

  • Seeking Dividend Income Certainty In An Uncertain World [View article]
    Maybe as a follow up, you could include two more columns:
    One column based on the yield using the trailing 12 months of dividend payouts vs the current price and the
    Second column showing the yield based on the annualized yield using the most recent dividend paid out.
    I realize that both measurements have their drawbacks - but this too might be of interest to your readers.
    And while you are at it. it would be nice to see both yields for the ETFs too..

  • Ford's Exposure To Europe [View article]
    Europe And The Fed: The Endgame's Approaching

    In reference to your comment that the market (Ford) is pricing in a U.S.recession an "neither (you) or most people expect one" , I encourage you to read the above title/article in todays market items.
    The author states that (and you mention) that europe is headed for a recession - a big one - and since the "Europe and theFed" article suggests that the global economies - specifically a completely mucked up EURO zone of unable to be defined financial problems - have become more intertwined than at any time in the past, I have a hard time believing that when EUROPE sneezes, the rest of the world will a catch a cold.
    I too am and have been bullish on Ford - but just got stopped out (slight profit) .
    I put in stops at my "no more risk" price points and let the market make decisions for me since I can no longer "buy and hope" and be willing to wait. Right now there are too many "what if risks" in the various economies which point to a perfect storm. Although perceived risks may be only perceived at this point of time, the "what if" part is what I can't handle until a few more solutions have been considered and decided upon by the many "leaders" representing (how many?) different countries who are attempting to fix the global mess. The US congress can't fix the economy for one country - how does anyone expect a bunch of sovereign countries to make efficient decisions which has teeth and permanency?

  • 7 ETFs For The 'Technical' Turnaround In Market Sentiment [View article]
    DOES THE 3 MONTH ALMOST 10% WEAKNESS IN DFJ REPRESENT A BUY ON WEAKNESS TO BUILD A DIVIDEND TOTAL RETURN FOR IRA ACCOUNTS?
    WITH THE EXDEPTION OF LAST APRIL'S DIP TO MID 30S, THE TREND OF THE LOWS HAS CONTINUED UPWARDS BUT THE SLOPE OF THE PAST FEW TOPS IS OF CONCERN.

    SORRY FOR THE CAPS - TOO LAZY TO RE TYPE.
    I AM A HUNT AND PECK GUY.
