  • What To Do With IAMGOLD After The Sell Off? [View article]
    Thanks for article Jacob.
    I have never had much exposer to gold other than indirectly through thought this would be good time to invest a few bucks with onslaught on gold. Enjoyed your angles as well as those taking contrary position.
    My final decision was based on fact that there has only been one very brief period since 2003 that IAG price was as low as it is today and with that in mind would appear to me the probability of upside would be much greater than downside over the long haul....and discount to book value was added incentive.

  • Why 401K Investors Should Move To Cash [View article]
    Evidently someone is giving this author credibility with 35,000 plus followers and almost 300 articles.

    While the above critics have 0 articles and about 10 followers between them.

    Just an observation!

  • Investor behavior: Same as it ever was [View news story]
    I hear you Mikeg999

    I think much the daily diatribe from bulls vs bears is to some extent....often directly proportional to those who's major concern is conserving what they have vs those needing to get to that point.

    Give me a vehicle that will guarantee 5% interest and no loss of principal and I'd be happy as a lark.

  • An Investor's Response To 'The President Wants You To Get Rich On Obamacare' [View article]
    "If you think the insurers will somehow get the short end, you're mistaken"

    How about a little common sense on issue...if ins co love it so much why are many pulling out of market place????

    I've been Ins broker for 30 years and only 2 words you need to know that will define outcome of this fiasco "adverse selection"

    Purpose was to get more healthy individuals into the equation and I'm seeing exactly the opposite. Only people we are enrolling are those eligible for subsidies/expanded Medicaid and unhealthy people. The healthy middle class are screaming --Why do I have to change plans and pay more for less coverage!

  • Expecting A Big Q3 Dividend Reduction From Alon USA Partners [View article]
    I'm in rheimerl's camp..anyone owning the stock and not expecting div cut is not too coherent.
    If cut 50% return will still be 9%...not too shabby and I don't expect much of sell off if any as believe already written in...however any significant drop would certainly have me climbing on board.

  • The Outlook For Equities After The September Jobs Report [View article]
    Enjoyed your article... I'm debating between BMO and BNS in banking sector and considering RCI also. Only Canadian stock I have now is TRP which I've had a long time and would like to expand in Canadian stock exposure. Would welcome your input.

  • PIMCO Total Return - A Competitive Analysis And Deep Dive Into Derivative Holdings [View article]
    Thank you Vol & Tim
    Appreciate both of your insights and will certainly give them due diligence.

    I too am nearing retirement. My objective at this point is more in reducing risk than amount of return. I have had PTRAX for long time and bought BOND right after it was available both have served me far, but as you say... Circumstances change.
