  • Bogle's Views On Retirement Income [View article]
    Well, talk about math if you wish to, but I know who has been pushing to privatize Social Security. Hint: It ain't math professors or actuaries.

    Sounds to me like your agenda is political.

    <<SSA is either a fraud or a welfare program. >>

    It is neither. You could look it up.

    Disagreeing that statists are always a problem regardless of stripe, but I think it depends on your definition of statist.

    I guess we'll disagree on that.

    I wonder if that means the proportion of income that would be subject to the SS tax.

    I suspect that I am glad you do not have that level of control *smile*

    They spend money on things I wish they would not, but, we do not get that level of control. We do get to vote though, for candidates who support our priorities.

    I reckon if you find it objectionable you could choose not to take it.

    I am taking it and I do not find it objectionable. I think it is exactly the kind of program that governments should be spending their (and other people's) money on.

    It does not follow that SS is a welfare program, though.

    Rumor-mongering at its worst.

    Also, one fail swoop is not the phrase. It is one fell swoop.

    Robert, your second sentence does that provide evidence that your first statement is correct.

  • People Are Buying Johnson & Johnson, But I'm Not Just Yet [View article]
    I would rather JNJ stagnate for a year or three while my dividends reinvest at more attractive prices, to be honest.

    it is not that hard to find.

    Go to David Fish's CCC website, download the monthly file. It is there for all members of the CCC universe, for multiple time periods.

    Alternately, use a site that shows annual dividend amounts for multiple years, enter the amounts for two specified years and the number of years between the two times into investopedia's CAGR calculator and get the result on your own.

    It is not very difficult

    The longrundata link tells you what a $1000 investment would be worth at the end of the time period selected. It also gives you what they call an annualized return.

    For T, I input those values into the CAGR calculator at investopedia. $1,000 start, 1819.91 after 5 years

    Results were the same - well, they were off by 1/100th of a percent.
