  • A Million Dollar Portfolio: Easier Than You Might Think [View instapost]
    Great article,
    May I add a few footnotes ?
    Back in my 20's and 30's IRAs were limited to $2000 per year.
    Since I did not have great knowledge, I used mutual funds to build my core.
    There are still many good mutual funds out there for young people or people who dont have the time or savvy to manage their own money.
    I am forever grateful to Mr. Michael Price for helping me get launched in the investment world.
    Every investor should research Michael Price.
    Sometimes life's events can derail your locomotive.
    Divorce,illness, job loss can all cut into your plans and dreams.
    The main thing is "stick with the plan" and never waiver.
    While my circumstances <divorce> have prevented me from personally reaching that magic number of 1 million,I would have been long past it,had life not thrown some curveballs.
    Start young,stay the course....

  • Stay On The REIT Track And Sleep Well At Night [View article]
    You talk about your patience,but I see your persistence.
    Quitters never win.
    SWAN is very important to me,and many of us have become so spoiled we freaked at the performance of "O" last week.
    I remain LONG, O,NNN,HCN,OHI,HCR.
    For those of us who look at the "BIG PICTURE" words like bubble are simply speed bumps.
    Thanks for your hard work.

  • 3 Conglomerates For The Income Investor [View article]
    I own all 3
    I dont need to argue the word "conglomerate"
    Some people need to find exception with everything written here.
    They simply love to argue every point.
    It is a widely accepted thought that JnJ is worth more in pieces and will eventually sell off some of its divisions.

    "T" is doing the same thing that AAPL did,undercutting their own priceplans/pricepoints.

  • Should You Delay Social Security Benefits?  [View instapost]

    My ex wife is fighting cancer for the third time at age 59.
    She is in the fight of her life,as after the 13 days of chemo,you cant eat for a month.
    I have lost several friends to cancer,including one friend who inherited millions but died before probate was complete.
    I suggest everyone get a complete and total medical exam shortly before their 62nd birthday.
    Your health,how you feel,and your immediate goals should very much help you determine when to take SS.
    Having $600 per month more to only sit on a couch and be miserable is not my gameplan.
    I will spend and travel less as I get older.
    Retire Before VIAGRA guys....
