  • Johnson & Johnson: Assessing Reputational Damage [View article]
    gior; I do not know if she needs any help. There is a point where anyone has gone too far. She might even be a parrot as she continues to say the same thing over and over. I would not want to go up against a person that I hated as much as she does the CEO of JNJ. What value is it to post the same thing over and over again on the same post area. It does not flatter her well.

    MP; That is fine, some people of a faith are not allowed to invest in things that pay interest, seems funny to me. I am a former smoker, stopped 20 years ago but own a lot of sin stocks. Wife and children still smoke. I try to tell people how much money can be saved by not smoking and putting the used to smoke in dividend stocks, own MO, BFB, & PM.

    EP; I trust you have a good lawyer standing by. Today is the first I have seen of your writings and you are free to say what you please up to the point it harms someone else. Like shouting fire in the movie house and people being harmed in the rush to get out. I am not a lawyer but did have to study a lot about it in order to do my job. I carried a federal badge and operated in Asia and Europe.

  • The Case For 0% Bond Allocation [View article]
    @user;;My dividends were greater than the interest rates of 2008; My stock values did drop but the dividends did not. By 2011, my wealth (my stock value) had doubled the 2008 value. I sold no stocks, had some EE bonds and did not sell those. I lived off of my pension and reinvested my dividends while the stock values were lower, lost nothing and made money. Had I been employed, I would have used the same plan. I will use that plan in the next correction. I admit I have little fear or greed, but I have a plan (SBI).

I sold no stocks, had some EE bonds and did not sell those. I had zero "income" and lived off of my pension and reinvested my dividends while the stock values were lower, lost nothing and made money. If I were employed, I would have used the same plan. I will use that plan in the next correction. I admit I have little fear or greed, I have a plan (SBI). I have travelled highway 13 many times and the angles must have watched over me then. Sorry your family member did not have a good dividend income, but those angles now look over her.

    SDS;If I remember right, east Germany did not have a law about having only one child, perhaps they had one about only one brain per family. That place was a mess, family members turning in each other to the security police , for every small reason.

    that was where I first heard of SDS and they did not mean you!

    gregT; I do not agree, I have no need for bonds. I have SS, a pension, and a lot of dividends which I reinvest 100%. I even invest me SS and live on just the pension. It is not big but I am frugal and save what I do not need. I did buy some EE bonds 20 years ago and may hold them even after they mature to use in the case of large medical costs. I will sell the stocks I hold as a last resort, my dividends are larger than my SS.

    mb75, You put some weight on who you were playing in your poker game. You are not able to select the cards you have to play in the poker game but you can select the stocks you hold in investment game. Do the same when you are investing in stocks, select good stocks with good dividends and enjoy a good income.
    If you want to discuss risk, explain how you do that in combat? How do you avoid drawing the wrong cards or avoid the wrong people then? Is there anything you can do to increase your odds of being one who returns?

    DVK; Please read Lowell Miller's book and then get back to me. I see zero need for zero bonds in my portfolio. Some may need bonds in their portfolio but I suggest it is fewer than most think.

    DVK, I use Rudi's photo cause I so ugly and because of my former employer. If I saw you on the street, not sure I would recognize you and could say hello.
    I try not to offend anyone, sorry if I have.

    Knapp; do you really hold bonds to protect against stock prices going down? A stock is not down until I sell the stock. I have enough income to preclude my selling any stocks for as many years I need. I only sell a stock when I say to sell a stock. My investment plan is much like L.Miller's plan (SBI) and I only sell stocks if I want to replace it with another. Sold three one month this year and bought five to replace them. I do hold some EE-bonds earning 4.5% as emergency funds. I feel an advisor will sell you anything that will make he/she money and perhaps even some for you. The ML advisor my wife had proved that to both of us. We now make all buy/sell decisions ourselves, total DIY people..
