  • The Great 401(k) Experiment Has Failed? [View article]
    Any report that just looks at just 401k balances is worthless. Nobody stays at one job any more whether it is their choice or the company's, therefore 401k money gets rolled out. The author sort of mentions this but then says it may entail higher fees. Really? A Vanguard index fund is .18% or less(haven't looked lately), buy stocks and there is zero fee. Show me a 401k program cheaper than that!

  • IT Security: An Industry Ripe For Profits [View article]
    While you discuss with industry analysts, I live and breathe cyber security every day as a career.

    Stepping up to a more holistic picture, you will find that FireEye has limited products for an enterprise. They will need more acquisitions in an attempt to stay relevant. Yes, they were first to market with their appliance and Mandiant was a good step but that mostly brings incident response to the table.

    As with any smaller technology firm, there is lots of risk. Whether or not they will payoff as an investment is TBD.

    You should review the history of FireEye's product and you will see that is exactly what it did. And yes, they are trying to build out their product line because they are behind in the competitive enterprise landscape.

    Other products have integrations with different malware defenses so that when they detect something, they can push those findings to them. FireEye doesn't have anything like that as they are standalone.

    FireEye - "a superior product to competitors". Care to justify that statement? They may have been first to market with their appliance but they are not superior to competitors. Take a look at Sourcefire's product (now part of Cisco) or McAfee's ATD product, both are consistently beating FireEye in competitive testing. Both Sourcefire and McAfee can integrate with endpoints whereas FireEye can't. McAfee's ATD product can also perform static code analysis of malware, something FireEye cannot do.

    FireEye did make a good move by acquiring Mandiant. However, they don't have enough product to be a complete solution to an enterprise.

    Full disclosure: I don't work for any of these companies, rather I'm an Information Security professional.

  • Retirement Strategy: Dividend Investors Have Several Ways To 'Supplement' Their Income [View article]
    Is there an issue with Vanguard? Just curious because I use them as well.

  • Retirement Strategy: Dividend Investors Have Several Ways To 'Supplement' Their Income [View article]
    Thanks for the info. I think this is a good strategy to use instead of just re-balancing a position(selling part of it) that gets too big. I can earn the premium and either keep the shares or sell them at a profit. Intel is one such position for me. Since the big run in share price (my basis is under $20), it seems like a good candidate and if some shares get called, I'm ok with that. Otherwise, I can earn some additional income. Make sense?

  • Retirement Strategy: Dividend Investors Have Several Ways To 'Supplement' Their Income [View article]
    Anyone have some guidance as to what to look for w/regards to selling covered calls? Timeframe? Premiums? Other? When I look at an the available options, there are lots of choices. What are best practices if you are looking at keeping the premiums and your shares which is obviously the best case. I understand my shares will be called away sometimes and that's ok.

  • Setting Up The Young Person's Portfolio [View article]
    Thanks so much for the replies. Yes, I am in U.S. and I have 529 plans for my children. Looking beyond that, sounds like the UGMA accounts make sense.

  • Setting Up The Young Person's Portfolio [View article]
    I have a question about investing for minors, ie, under 18. What is the best way to setup an account for them: UGMA? some sort of trust (what kind?), my name and gift it later, something else? I have young children and would like to start them off with something (not a lot of money). Any thoughts?

  • Dividends Are A Return Of Capital And A Return On Capital [View article]
    Anybody have the formula for calculating your return on investment with dividends reinvested? I'm looking for something I can put in a spreadsheet? I've found so many different answers via google that I've now confused myself!

    Any good links to articles discussing this?
