    Well she sure toasted me 20 years ago !! I am in the same camp as having found my better half now...

    That experiment might not work out by August. When we fire up the new challenge i will still continue to hold some metals exposure but will be adding stocks as well.

    Still trying to gather info on PCEF !!

    USER is the one who might shed some light on this as he invests in those closed end funds...

    Honestly, i don't have anything that one would consider a BIG holding. I have been nibbling for 3 years now. I do plan on adding MAIN to my portfolio though.

    Just have to decide if i sell PSEC, FSC, and then buy MAIN.. It is in a ROTH account so no tax issues...

    GLD, SLV, NUGT are long term plays and wasn't expected to head north very quickly. No one knows when that dam breaks.. Or if it ever does...But one should have some exposure to them..

    Going to be buying a new Weber barby this weekend. Finally broke into the 50's today with 60's next week...

    Love coming home from a game and tossing something marinated on the fire. Hey, can you marinate an ex ? Never mind...

    "What good is a high yield on an investment that erodes your principal balance?"

    Here is my thinking on that. Let's say i have 120k in a BDC that is giving out 10% a year and paid out monthly. So when i retire i am getting 1k a month. Who cares if the principal erodes as long as i am getting that 10% monthly, or say it's 10 cents a share monthly that equates to 1k.

    As long as the dividend isn't cut then my daughter inherits my principal, and i lived off of the monthly dividend. The big assumption is no dividend cut.

    At that point in my life if all i needed was the dividend to help pay my bills then i think it's not a bad move. So what am i missing?

    I agree.. But isn't the yield on most blue chips around 3 to 4% ?

    The BDC'S are around 8 to 10%. If i am wrong let me know..

    I understand your reasoning. But another stumbling block is many of these companies prices are over a 100 bucks. So if funds are limited then i am buying very few shares of each.

    Then the dividend is almost non existent !

    I believe you posted your wife had worked for over 15 years at her last company and built up a decent 401K.
    Add to that you guys , i believe, are in your 40's. Then i agree 100% it would be the best way.

    But my situation is much different. I have family that i have set up my nieces and nephews doing exactly what you suggest. They are in their 20's and dollar cost avg.

    However i set them up in mutual funds instead of having them open trading accounts until they cut their teeth on investing ..
