  • Retirement Strategy: Evaluating Your Risk Tolerance Can Be Gut-Wrenching But Vital [View article]
    Age 59 1/2
    My risk tolerance is a bit different than most commenters here.
    I fear going back to work as much as a market crash.
    My honesty has burned some bridges,and I wont work for $12 per hour.
    I havent worked for anyone I have respect for in years.
    Hatchet men and work place politicians dont motivate me.
    I fear those dividend stocks halting payments, as much or more than a market correction.
    For me there is no going back,so choosing quality soldiers who will support me in battle is vital.
    Sitting on $100k in cash right now waiting the big one.

  • Chevron At 5% Dividend Yield - Is It Finally Time To Fill Up The Tank, Or Is The Tank Empty For Good? [View article]
    At this point Im only a buyer of XOM if the price continues to fall.
    Its nice to be the eternal optimist,but there is no doubt in my mind XOM will survive and thrive from this market.
    Could XOM gobble up CVX ?
    I guess it is possible but I doubt it.
    Much more likely they gobble up BP and or some of the smaller players.
    One thing for sure the oil industry will be lean and mean after this all shakes out.
    For now I lick my wounds on "unrealized" capital losses,with the possibility of some realized loss taken at tax time.

  • AT&T: More Risky Than You Might Think [View article]
    They simply told me to "Change my number"
    However with resumes,business cards,elderly relatives, and hopefully a long lost girlfriend or two,thats easier said than done.

  • AT&T: More Risky Than You Might Think [View article]
    Disclosure: T is our largest holding.
    I was receiving death threats and threats of harm on my cell phone from another cell phone. <WORK RELATED,FLOOR SUPERVISOR,INDIAN CASINO >
    I tried and tried to get T to disclose to me where the threats were coming from.
    They would not help me.
    IN FACT,NOBODY WOULD HELP ME !!
    I then asked them "If I get murdered tonight,will you not trace all the incoming calls on my cell phone?"
    They agreed they would,but only if I were murdered.
    LONG T,,,but not always happy with them...

  • Does Berkshire Hathaway Make The Cut As A 'Retirement Stock'? [View article]
    I am in the process of building a new retirement income IRA.
    Much of this new portfolio will be comprised of income and growth income dividend paying securities.
    I am also dedicating 10% of the portfolio to pure growth.
    BRK-B and QQQ are my two choices so far.

  • Turbocharge Income Growth With Dividend Reinvestment [View article]
    My special "KHZ" funds went into "O".
    10% of my monthly "O",gets reinvested...into more "O".
    NON Ira divvies are income.
    All IRA divvies are re-invested.
    I just reached the "GOLDEN AGE" of 59 and 1/2.
    Hope not to touch IRA divvies until forced to do so.
