  • The REIT Dividend Delusion [View article]
    How do you folks analyze the impact of rising rates on an instrument with an infinite maturity, i.e., how do you calculate duration?

  • Selling Winners In Your Portfolio Is Never Easy [View article]
    Not sure why you would ever sell a winner unless the fundamental story and not simply valuation changed. Long MO for 40+years, same for JNJ. Held AIG for 20+ until Hank was forced out, then sold. Own PEP for at least 30 years.

    Yes, if I were all knowing, I could trade these items. But in a taxable account, it's hard to believe anyone can consistently beat good old buy and hold.

  • House Price-To-Rent Ratios In Major U.S. Markets [View article]
    Does your analysis take into account real estate taxes, which vary greatly and are the obligation of the owner as opposed to the renter? I think your analysis is flawed.

    Because he's an idiot. Ok. I know this post will be removed, but these guys that just continually post unrelated political diatribes have to be dealt with.

    I read Jeff's column every week and really look forward to it. However, his column seems to attract comments from several readers that are just political diatribes only partially related to the topic of the day. They post incessantly often repeating their "brilliant" observations on the human condition with a touch of Jesse Ventura. Is there anyway to control this nonsense?

    I've been polite and not named names. But these guys are starting to annoy me.

    "Sold Feb 7 puts on CLF for $1.05. Either I get CLF at $6 or pocket $1.05."

    It's February 14th?

  • Audit The Fed? [View article]
    Now we need an article explaining why the Rothschild's don't own the Fed and the Bilderberger's are not manipulating everything in the world. These topics bring out the crazies.

    I'd like your opinion on playing VXX with covered calls. I've been doing this weekly for about six weeks. The extreme volatility results in very large potential returns. I've been averaging about 2.3 % a week writing in the money calls.

    What would that curve look like adjusted for population increases? During the period in question the US population grew about 40%.
