  • My First Quarter 2015 Portfolio Review [View article]
    Because I am still unemployed <effectively retired and job searching> your updates and offerings are always important to me.
    I share many of your holdings,and will be tapping my IRA this July,along with re investing proceeds of a maturing CD
    Keep the good stuff coming.

  • HCP, Inc.: This Problem Just Got Bigger [View article]
    I just invested in HCP this past week.
    Isnt over billing part of the health care industry ?
    $50 aspirin,$8000 ambulance ride are all part of why our country is soooo screwed up in health care.
    I guess for the DOJ to target them their tactics are above the normal abuse.
    I once worked for a casino that was targeted by the DOJ.
    I could write a book on how that place was run,and how they skillfully managed to dodge and satisfy the DOJ.
    Makes me want to puke.

  • Comparing The DG50 To My 3-Fund Portfolio On The Road To Retirement [View article]
    I began my investing career with mutual funds.
    Most notably,I was a disciple of the great Michael Price.
    For those of you who dont know him,you should.
    In 2008 when the great recession hit,I felt well protected.
    Afterall,my mutual fund managers were far smarter than me,Im sure they are selling the losers and picking new winners to keep my returns at 15% per year.
    NOT !!
    That was the point,where I began to take a greater interest in "DO IT YOURSELF".
    Dave Crosetti mentioned the Nifty Fifty was not a must own list,as many of those stocks are now over valued.
    Thirty years from now great stocks will still be great stocks to own,no matter what you paid for them.
    A direct invest low $ amount account allows you to invest small amounts at a time,therefore dollar cost averaging into slightly over valued gems.

    Thank You Michael Price,wherever you are !
