  • Retirement Withdrawal Rates: It's About More Than The Math [View article]
    "I would submit that many people will have more than one really expensive one-off during their retirement"

    You got that right, Roger.

  • Figuring Out What Kind Of Investor You Are [View article]
    I love it when a very thoughtful article like this is published. I also love it when something like the stench-weighted index ETF is proposed. I suppose the symbol would be CRP. Thanks for the laugh.

  • Dave Ramsey's Optimistic Investing Advice: Irresponsible or Motivating? [View article]
    Dave should stick to what he does best... planning on how to get out and stay out of unnecessary debt. If you want investing advice, he's not the man...

  • Stock Dividends: Underrated Component of Investment Return [View article]
    Joe makes an important point: Taxes DO matter. Tax policy on regular income, dividends, and capital gains can change not only investor behavior, but corporate behavior as well.
    Individually, why should I take income from a portfolio where dividends are taxed as regular income (coming out of an IRA) when they are taxed much less from non-tax advantaged accounts? It does make a difference!

  • Target Retirement Date Lifecycle Funds: Ignorance Is Never Bliss [View article]
    The wide divergence of asset distribution on any particular target year is particularly disturbing. It would indicate that not very much thought has been put into some of the allocations. It seems that in some, providing an outlet for loser mutual funds of the same family is the priority. Having bond funds in the allocations is also disturbing. Bond funds do strange things in changing interest environments. I'm still from Missouri on these animals.

  • Revenue Shows That Ceasing Tobacco Sales In Stores Is No Great Loss For CVS Health [View article]
    Speeding checkout would be a plus, but they are not slow because of tobacco, they are slow because of inadequate training of staff, too few staff, and general confusion. I stopped shopping there because of that.

  • Retired Investors: Is It Time To Consider A New Investment Strategy? [View article]
    Thanks, Bob for an excellent article. It helps fill the void of articles for people IN retirement, rather than just planning for retirement.

  • In Search Of Canadian Dividends: Part II [View article]
    I bailed out of Canada when EWC went south last year. Thanks for renewing my interest. The chart on XEI looks much better. Thanks for your chart on individual companies. I would hope that someone could do something on the order of what boomboom99 is suggesting as I find the research on Canada stocks daunting and need some help in that regard.

  • Why You Should Hold These Troubled Blue-Chip Stocks [View article]
    David Fish's is also 22.8 in November. This just shows how careful one must be in coming to conclusions with something as simple as P/E ratio. In any case a little rich for me.

  • The Best Retirement Investing 'Mistake' [View article]
    I always thought that there was a fallacy in the argument about KO. You have stated it well.

  • One Pro's Take On Asset Allocation [View article]
    Someone who is presenting an asset allocation to the tenth of a percent has been smoking something, and it is not camels. Run, don't walk from this guy. I realize, Roger that is not the point, but just looking at numbers sometimes reveals more than it may seem.

  • New Label For An Old Concept? [View article]
    This makes more sense than the yammering on YOC. Thanks, Larry

  • Dividend ETFs: How To Select A Winner [View article]
    Have these funds shown dividend growth over the years? If I bought these 5 or 8 years ago, would I be getting more income now than when I bought them? We can look for dividend growth with stocks, but how about the ETFs?
