carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.
Novice investor just getting started like the idea of owning gold but find silver more affordable and a better use for bartering. Looking to move 457 contributions to a investment vehicle that will keep up with hyper-inflation. Not sure of timetables but feel the sooner the better. Looking for ways to keep uncle sugar from taxing our hard earned cash that has taken over 30 years to accumulate. Need some help in determining which way is best? thanks

I am a value investor to the greatest extent possible. I also favor dividend stocks. I try to be a buy-and-hold investor, but sometimes I can't avoid the tempation to ring the register or to accumulate the inevitable tax loss. The main thing I have learned is that I have lost more money by selling too soon than for any other reason. I reside in Henderson, NV.
