  • Is Sturm, Ruger A Good Dividend Pick? [View article]
    If that is your cup of tea then go ahead, I would rather just stay here in a little nicer part of the country where it isn't worth worrying about such things.

    The material one. Everybody buying guns. It started when Obama was elected. You couldn't buy ammo in six counties. Then a few mass murders and gun sales went through the roof. People don't need a gun now any more than they did 10 years ago. Crime in all of the developed world is going down. No one is going to take anyone's gun away. The surge in gun sales will go the way the surge in CB radios did when I was a kid.

    A backward PE of 4. I don't know what kind of forward PE that will be. Maybe if we go back an look at some pre-Obama numbers we might get an idea. You guys can't stay on the same kick forever.

    Yeah, if all that happens RGR will probably go up, but you can't always count on the happy-day scenario.

    I'd buy in at $20. It would only take one mass murder for it to go up from there.

    Of course RGR is going away soon but it might just go back into the $20 range where it was before bubble mania started a few years ago. Maybe you should go out ammo shopping before you buy RGR. If you can find some then don't buy it.

    In this case there was no threat but people loaded up anyhow. They just might find that they are a little over loaded once they notice that guns are not going to go away in our lifetimes.

    You don't think that there is a strong possibility that gun sales may decrease in the next few years? Obama can't get elected again. There is a significant risk that the GOP may win some elections and no one will need to worry about the Feds taking their guns away from them (and thus no motivation to go out and buy more).

  • Ultra-Low-Risk Retirement Strategy For Folks Who've Saved $1 Million [View article]
    "I do not know a single person here -- DGI or otherwise -- who says that there is "no risk to owning an all stock portfolio."" Did you happen to notice the title of the article that you are commenting on and the authors allocation recommendations?

    I have been watching the DGI folks for quite a while. They extrapolate that dividend and past growth rate into the future (your growing stream) with great confidence. Past performance is a guarantee of future performance for DG stocks but all others are very risky.

    I am glad to see that you are not being a DGI purist with your money.

    They exist. Mine tells you what it is going to pay over then next period then does it. Always has. I don't know what next paragraph put your mind in doubt.

    I only said that the stable value fund was an investment option in my 401k, I never said I bought any of it. My style is far more aggressive and it has worked very well for me. When I log into my 401 site, it tells me my investments are too aggressive for a person that is going to retire in 9 years at age 65. I am already retired and that is my most conservatively allocated account.

    If you only need to spend 1.4% or 2% of each year almost any investing strategy will work. I have a stable value fund (absolutely risk free) in my 401K that pays 2%.

    It is funny to me that you dividend people think there no risk to owning an all stock portfolio just because they are big dividend paying companies. There is risk there no matter how many people nod their head in agreement or how sure you are that you can project the past's dividend and growth rate into the future.

    "At WisdomTree, we do things differently." - this sentence says, I just finished reading an article and started reading a sales itch.

  • The Only 20 Companies That Matter [View article]
    My quick glance shows the first 2 companies are about 2% and the next 18 average about 1%. This would make the total closer to 20% Since you actually added up the earnings you could add up the market caps.

    The reason these companies make 20% of the profits is because they are 20% of the corporate world.

    With the exception of the dubious members, FNMA and FMCC, they all are huge companies. They make 20% of the profits but they might be 20% of the market cap of all traded corporations.
