  • JPMorgan Chase Shareholders Should Sell Now [View article]
    I would very much like your answer to the question many have concerning JPM and the US GOV. Many feel that our GOV has somewhat taken advantage of BAC and JPM when the GOV asks (read that requires) some companies to take over other companies that are going to fail and cost the GOV money if it has to cover the bankruptcy of said companies. My opinion is the GOV cut a deal with other banks to prevent the failure of several banks that were it trouble and the GOV would have to save if the banks did not and then cut the throat of the banks who did the rescue. May not be true but I feel many stocks holders have the same opinion.

    I recall Merrill was not able to save itself and was in turn saved by another as did JPM.

    dear don, you seem to have an issue with JPM as you write about it often and never in my memory to you write a non negative comment. Have they acted in my favor in all actions, no. How about a few words on GS which I call Golden Sucks. When I looked at where the profits went with that stock, I came to think in went back into the pockets of the partners and very little went into the pockets of the owners (stock holders), look at the dividens. I assume you do not own either of these bank stocks?

  • Building A Do-It-Yourself Dividend Portfolio - Part 9: Energy [View article]
    I use much the same plan. I have my stocks listed in my portfolio in four levels. Level one has done so well that I no longer give the 7 stocks in that level any new money but do reinvest all dividends into the paying stock. On a few occasions I will put new money into the 7 stocks in level two but most new cash goes into the remaining 16 stocks in levels three and four. I seldom rebalance but I do sell all of a stock and purchase another from time to time.
    I have to take withdrawals and so far one stock in level one has provided all the withdrawals and has done so for several years as it replenishes itself by the time the next December rolls around. I do not spend the withdrawal, I just put it in my taxable investment account where it grows some more. We still live as frugal as possible and give to family and a few charities we like. Enjoy your articles very much and follow many of you. doubtful you will read this unless you look back a bit. hope the future has treated you as well as it has treated me. viel gluck to allis.

    As you said, they have a lock on the market, now you have to buy from only one bad company. I only have about 40% in profits at my current cost/price so think I will hold for a while longer as you guys sell. I may buy some more on a drop..

    I have had SYY for several years and my basis is 24 and I am holding as usual. If MIDD is in my bucket list, it must be so far down n the bucket that I can not see it.

    I have read that SA takes some editorial supervision of articles that you and others write, so is there a double standard or are you under more control and the blogger under less?

    I do not care either way, but it is nice to know those facts.

    I feel the market is very complicated and hard to predict. It does have some features that seem to follow patterns but they are hard to find. Which brings me to my question. Why are you in it?

    lotogo; None of us really know what is going to happen in the market.
    Not even the "great ones". Each of us has to have a plan in place that directs our actions. I have written my plan and I follow it. It does not include selling into a down market as that is the time to buy. Many of my stocks have a basis 50% lower than the current value. I would like someone to tell me just when should I sell and when do I buy back into the market. In 2008, a family member lost a job and I sold some stock to have cash to keep them out of trouble. In 2013, I sold 2 stocks I felt were not doing as well as I wanted. I added some cash, and bought 5 new positions. Those that I bought are up 8-11 dollars per share. I invest for the future. even invested my social security the past ten years. My employer paid low wages and a small pension, so I have frugal habits. I do not allow the market to tell me to sell. My plan says I am to hold. Most can not do this as the stress is too much. I have lived in stressful places many times and the market is the least of them.
    Develop a plan, write it down, and then stick to it. Do not allow the market to rule you as you have a plan of attack. It will be your plan and not mine. As you can read, my plan is no where near the plan of the current author, he gives his opinion and I give mine and you decide.
