  • 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.

    Belgium (ECB) dumped 100 billion in treasuries the last few months. They did that to drive yields up so they can buy bunds cheaper during their QE program.

    The suppression of PM's, interest rates and true price discovery in every asset class. However you have to add in that they control currency issuance and every influential politician and legislator. So just because you caught the criminal does not mean anything has to change.

    Everyone sees things however they want to see them. The only difference here is I see them how they currently are, and have been for decades, you and you describing how they could potentially be.

    Or....the U.S can continue to use the MIC to make sure we get what we need from other countries while hooking up the leaders of those communist countries in exchange for keeping their boot on the necks of their citizens. You know....same ol same ol?
