    Im 95/5 and part of that 95 is my holdings in "T"

    I met with a locally famous <radio,tv> CFP who offers 2 plans.
    1-2% <depending on size> of your portfolio <plus hourly,if you are needy> OR commission based on what he buys and or sells for your account.

    The meeting was very informative and free for the first meeting only.
    What he showed me was "dont sweat your job anymore" <I was laid off shortly thereafter> and how to set up the "buckets" principal.

    He strongly wanted to manage my money on a commission basis.

    Im not saying he was dishonest in any way,Im simply stating they earn more by pushing commission sales over the 1% type of account.
    He wanted to place me in all types of high commission funds,that we both know we can duplicate on our own.

    All my Best,

    Probably because most CFP's think commission,commission,...
    For many,its all about sales....
    I took a class with the great Paul Zoch of Zoch and Zoch...
    The very first thing he taught us was the number 1 rule to financial planning is <drum roll> "Protect what you have".
    In other words most people are so consumed in making money they fail to protect their existing assets.
    I have a will/trust,along with a umbrella policy over everything I own
    I am over insured

    Im all in on your plan with one additional rule.
    Whenever possible,I dollar cost average my way into a stock I like.
    Its slower going,but effective
    While this may prevent me from hitting home runs,the overall accumulation of singles,doubles,and triples work out fine.
    Once per year I remove the "weak link" and add those funds to the other stocks in this portfolio.
    This has worked out well for me especially with utility stocks I own.
    Exceeding $15k per year dividend income and growing

  • Equity Investing Or Index Investing [View article]

    I missed this article on 11/11,so Im glad it was re posted.
    Someone hacked my account here,as I have been in a pi**in match with some of the guys here over ARCP.
    Without full fanfare,you know I am your biggest fan.
    I truly hope you continue along with a series of articles,because like Mr Fish,Crosetti,DVK,The Chuckster,RS,The Bob's,your insight is most appreciated.
    You guys give me <the little guy> a fighting chance in this world of mis-information.

    Again, I will be constructing a "new portfolio' next July with the proceeds of a maturing IRA CD.
    Im hoping to call it the Fish Chowder portfolio and hope that all of the names mentioned above will share their wisdom and insight into building this portfolio.
    I hope that one person will continually share info and write articles on this portfolio <not me>

    All the Best,
    Bill in San Diego <forgive me if I left anyone out,but you guys know who I follow>

  • Recent Sale: Sysco [View article]
    Recently I sold half my "T" position and redeployed funds to VZ and COP.
    Im sure not everyone will agree with that move,but I was overweight in T,and feel both VZ and COP will offer me some growth along with the nice divvy
    Hindsight is always 20/20 on these moves.
