    I agree with your underlying point (follow it 95% of the time myself) but think you have taken it to a pedantic extreme. There is being principled and then there is being illogical.

    Chuck,

    Maybe a great idea for a very specific article on Valuation would be using FAST G to compare a couple companies in the time frames you are mentioning here (2000-2002, 2007-2009)...??...I'm assuming you have not already done that?

    at one time...the dow was at an "all time high" of 3000...if you bought and held then...you would have been ok.

    it is not where it is...it is where it is going...I'm not saying its not going down...I'm saying being at an all time high is not a "tell tale" sign of anything.

  • Will Dividend Stocks Save You In A Bear Market? [View article]
    yes...which is why "I" would be more interested in a article that describes how you avoid owning a company that cuts its div in a down turn than has a price drop.

    Net worth is what you brag about at the country club. Income is how you afford to play golf 5 times a week.

    Panic (or owning garbage) is how you lose money in a bear market.

    "Therefore, DRIPS are not a fool proof method for wealth preservation during a bear Market."

    THERE ARE NO REAL FOOL PROOF METHODS...that is a pointless comment.

    so allow me to say something just as pointless to debunk all this mumbo jumbo...

    Here are 2 fool proof methods for wealth preservation during a bear market.

    1) don't ever buy stocks.
    2) don't ever sell GOOD stocks when there is a bear market...they WILL come back. They always have. If they don't then even cash is probably going to be worthless.

    Bonds. You are joking right?

    If you want a sure fire way to get almost nothing for your money NOW and lock in a loss when (not if...but how much and when) interest rates go back up....then by all means buy a bond (or even more disastrous a bond fund).

    Buying bond in this interest rate environment is like building a house of sugar in the desert because it "might not rain" for a few years.

    You are MUCH better off just sitting on cash than buying a bond fund.

    If you are buying ANY stock in the hope of safety in a bear market you don't understand markets. There is no safety if you need to sell stocks on short notice. That is why panicky novices should not invest in the market on a "day to day" basis.

    On the other hand, if you want some income and "more stability than average" over a 30 year period (like a long retirement?)....blah blah blah.

    Really...why do we keep seeing this singular perspective over and over?

    I agree. I have noticed one thing about people who are haters and people who are pessimist. They are usually the same people.

  • Is Spectra Energy A Good Investment? [View article]
    SE is one of those stocks that has just quietly sat in my portfolio like a good and patient dog hoping for more love than I give it ... raising its dividend and stock price over the years since the DUK split. Maybe I need to pet it a bit (buy more)....but on the other hand that forward P/E is pretty terrifyingly high....
