  • How I Manage Market Adversity [View instapost]
    Thank you very much for sharing!
    I've already been doing monthly summary of my assets/liabilities for 3 yrs.
    But I see the need to keep track of the individual stocks in my portfolios now.

  • A Million Dollar Portfolio: Easier Than You Might Think [View instapost]
    Thank you. It was a great read.

    ``Having a spouse who can do the same thing makes the exercise even better, in my opinion.''

    This reminds me of ``The Millionaire Next Door.'' The authors stated that it would be very difficult to accumulate wealth if one in a couple is a spendthrift. And in their survey, many millionaires claimed that they couldn't get their wife to spend.

  • The 2 Keys To Successful Big Oil Investing [View article]
    Thanks for the thought-provoking article. I think for the oil companies (maybe for others, too) div yield is a better indicator than P/E when making decisions. For example, XOM's yield must have been high when its P/E was high as earning dropped faster than price. At the same time dividend stayed the same or even increased, making the yield very attractive.

  • The Portfolio For Do It Yourselfers: Why We Are Staying The Course [View article]
    Thanks David for the wonderful article(s).

    Your reply reminds me of many things I've learned. For example, in my
    profession (programmer), we have a saying ``Perspective is worth 80 IQ points.''
    But mostly, it reminds me of what Buffett/Munger said about how their success
    has been due to their attitude toward investing.

    Before that, we'll see an exodus of bond holders and great appreciation of stocks, including DG stocks, to the point of overvalue. And that's the time to rebalance by taking profits in stocks and moving to bonds.
