  • The Return Of Deflation? [View article]
    This article is spot on and the result will be equities continuing to scream to new all time high's. The fed desperately wants to pull off one rate hike so they can stick their mission accomplished sign in the ground for the Obama administration and then spend the next 5 years not raising rates but jawboning about the possibility. Stay invested.

  • China's Gold Reserves: A Strong Dose Of Reality [View article]
    I like to argue with this author about how he views things, but reality is reality and his first bullet point about China is absolutely correct. Anyone seeing things otherwise is deluding themselves. Give it another decade and PM's will be completely erased from the memories of the mouth breathers walking around the mall buying icrap on their iphone. It's all about the USD.

  • Retirement Strategy: Millennials Have Issues, But They Also Have Time, Lots Of Time [View article]
    I don't think they should blame others. I think they should tell your generation to make good on your bloated promises yourselves. I don't think that would be counterproductive in the least for them to do.

    You keep claiming to have "an opinion" and then constantly tell others they are wrong when they disagree. You seem to miss the idea that when it comes to opinions, everyone is allowed to have one. But that is just your generational narcissism showing through. I'd say give it some time, but....

  • Retirement Strategy: Millennials Have Issues, But They Also Have Time, Lots Of Time [View article]
    I suggest you don't be so combative towards a pretty open minded and impartial post. If you can't handle even the slightest level of disagreement, even from someone who said "Don't misunderstand my reply with advocating against DGI strategies.. I don't advocate against DGI stocks. I love DGI stocks" your skin is probably a bit too thin to be posting articles on the web.

    And as for the millenials, you boomers buried them in your expensive promises to yourselves. They never got out of the starting gate. They do have a slim chance if they are smart enough to divest themselves of your entitlements and start over. Doubtful though.

  • Kroger announces stock split and new buyback plan [View news story]
    Hysterical that some are calling bs on a company doing financial engineering in a market that is built on financial engineering. It is what it is.

  • Can Aspiring Retirees Be Nudged Into Living Off Dividends Alone? [View article]
    I am just pointing out the reality of beginner investor behavior/psychology. Especially an investor who is doing something against their will and natural instincts. I'd venture to say that at least 50% would immediately close their accounts.

  • Can Aspiring Retirees Be Nudged Into Living Off Dividends Alone? [View article]
    Agreed, good advice. However you are a DGI investor by choice. This article is referring those being nudged. I would say more accurately they are being shoved. It may be hard to get them to embrace the method accurately. Imagine being starved of income for 6 years only to go into div paying stocks now and get a 10% haircut off your principal because of a quick spike in rates. Talk about an unhappy welcome...

  • Can Aspiring Retirees Be Nudged Into Living Off Dividends Alone? [View article]
    Nudged? 6 years of ZIRP and counting which eliminated all interest income from the bank while equities provided the only real source of potential income? That's a lot of things, but it ain't nudged.

    One thing to keep in mind, If we are truly in a scenario where the fed wished to tighten even a little. These retirees that are being nudged will probably have to get used to seeing principal loss in dividend stocks, especially initially. They would probably be better off in SPY and look to cap app in place of dividends. Better chance of preserving principal. Once the rate tightening is done, then they may want to consider dividend stocks.

  • Did COMEX Just Receive A Physical Gold Bailout From The Feds? [View article]
    Gold has been stagnant for 2 years, so I guess it's working.

    I thought delivery failures happen all the time and it's no big thing because everyone is more than happy to settle almighty benny bucks. Why is this even a big deal? Bringing Mattingly into it only works against the author. By 1995 between his back and ribs, Mattingly was done. He had a good playoff series against seattle and went out a hero. Lets leave him be.

    Eric look for a multiple on the S&P of about 40 when we top out in about a decade from now. Don't sweat rates either. It's all good.

    The collusion was that the ECB loaded up on treasuries to dump them exactly when the rest of the world went to front run their bond purchases. It was brilliant. It drove prices down, and now they can come in and buy.
