    I remember seeing the number of respondents on the AAII surveys and I remember thinking the survey response was too small for me to consider relevant.

  • The Biggest Threat To Your Retirement Portfolio: Mild Dementia [View article]
    Great article. I experienced this issue with my Dad, who informed me when he was ill that all his money was invested with a buddy who was paying him 12% interest (paying on paper only of course). When I asked him if he ever considered Vanguard he started crying, which was very uncharacteristic for this WWII vet tough guy. I assured him it was no big deal.
    After he passed away I had an attorney request immediate withdrawal of funds, which took a year and was 80% successful before the company declared bankruptcy.
    Afterward I was determined to put some safeguards in place as I age for our finances, but your article did bring up a few things new for me to consider. Thanks.

    There is such negative publicity momentum. I think SEAS undervalued and toxic.

    When I get that feeling I put in a 2% trailing stop loss and let the security "sell itself".

  • Phillips 66: I Am Rationally Exuberant [View article]
    "Despite the run, the stock remains undervalued in comparison with the average S&P500 P/E and dividend yield."

    PSX 5 year PE average is 10% - not comparable to S&P PE.
