  • Don't Let Rising Rates Rattle Your Portfolio In 2013  [View article]
    thank you for a very reasoned analysis. I was pleased to see the paragraph on writing covered call options. So far this has worked for me. I only own high quality stocks--KMP, CVX,AFL,and MSFT. I also own DIA. Buying put options has especially worked. My main concern is to keep the dividends. With the nonesense going on in DC, it is unlikely that the stocks will be called, but if so, I would buy them back and write new calls.

    i have had a pulmonary embolism and recently a blood clot in my leg. My MD wanted to replace warfarin with this drug, but was waiting to see if it was approved by FDA . this is good news.
