  • A Day In The Life  [View article]
    That piece provides a powerful argument for dividend growth investing and one that even I can understand. Still, being 78, I would like to buy at a reasonable cost. Then I could hold for the children if I can stay out of the nursing homes as my pension pays for day to day living cost. Would you be so kind to direct me to a site I could use for buying at a reasonable cost? Thank you the service you provide to both young and old.

  • The Dividend Aristocrats: Create Your Own Portfolio Or Invest In NOBL? (Part 2)  [View article]
    I am sorry but where might I learn the stocks in NOBL? Their website and Morningstar will give the top 10 but that is all. Thanks for a good discussion of an equity I could pursue further.

    I appreciate your DG 50 experiment and will be following your progress. Maybe you have addressed it; but, what did you do with WAG?

  • Dual Momentum: How To Implement Strategy For Higher Returns With Lower Risk  [View article]
    After reading the papers on his website, I feel I have an understanding of the concept. The real task would be in implementing it. Does the book provide the spreadsheets etc etc required to put the concept into operation? I already have two shelves full of books but ultimately use a couple of software systems for my investing. Tell me I would not be just adding another book to the shelves.
    Thank you

  • The Swensen 6 Portfolio: How To Reduce Risk And Trounce The Market  [View article]
    As an older retired person, I thank you for a very understandable and feasible program. I should be able to follow the program given your Platinum membership. The Aristotle strategy identifies rebalancing every 33 days but you seem to be saying you provide the spreadsheet updates when one of your portfolios calls for it, which I interpret might not be timed for the Swensen or Aristotle strategy. How critical is the 33 days? Again, thank you.

    A great article but I was left with a question even before I started reading.
    What might be the impact of "Private Letter Ruling's" if IRS gives a positive and if a negative ruling?

  • How To Maximize Your Income Portfolio Using A Four-Sleeve Approach  [View article]
    I guess I question your comment EdwardjK. Treasuries certainly don't pay me an income that I could survive on, gold wouldn't taste very goodl, equities might help and yes I can buy groceries with the cash. Oh, yes they both have 4 parts.

  • New Tactical Asset Allocation Strategy To Grow Retirement Savings At Reduced Risk  [View article]
    varan, have you published a paper on your approach? I would greatly appreciate seeing it if it exist. Also, I am not familiar with the term risk parity. Again, I am a very unsophisticated investor so I need help

    Thank you Cliff for sharing your work. It is an approach I could easily implement. I look forward to the more conservative paper as I am in retirement and have been for 20 years. I would certainly appreciate your trades as I am a very unsophisticated investor but realize cash is not always King. Again thanks for the presentation. I must go look at ETFreplay software.

  • The Common Man Portfolio And Total Return  [View article]
    OK, I am retired and an inexperienced investor. This was a real eye opener for me David. It was an excellent piece of work and one I will print and hang on my study wall. However, I have a basic question i.e. where do I find dividends paid in each of the last 5 years? Or, even earnings in each of the last 5 years? I have access to charting services but not fundamental data. Maybe you can't answer these kinds of questions on this site? Again, even though retired, I am a real novice to investing and want to be a dividend growing investor. I will continue to follow your articles
