  • My Mad Method Meets My Wife's IRA [View article]
    Gratian, I am currently working on the same thing: 2 ROTH's, 2 IRA's and 1 taxable. Any advice on how you are achieving.. accts not holding the same stocks. This is my goal but I am overlapping. I know you're going to say just don't do it but with best of breed I do find myself in a pickle. Thanks

    Brad, thanks for addressing "triple net REITS". This is still an area that I'm not familiar with and so often confused with the triple net term.

  • Can Dividend Growth Stocks Beat Inflation When Held In A Taxable Account? [View article]
    Thanks Chowder..I've never been good at bonds either. Your view on the operaton of schools etc. does make sense and I agree so I'm going to keep digging. My research keeps going back to them because I think they do have a position in our personal account and I am looking for best of breed...just haven't nailed it yet!

  • Can Dividend Growth Stocks Beat Inflation When Held In A Taxable Account? [View article]
    Chowder, but with the financial state of our current economy are munis a good idea right now? I have also been looking into them for our personal account but I don't think this is the right time and probably not until the country stops kicking that can. Also, some are listed as being subject to "Alternative Minimum Tax" at Morningstar. What is up with that?

    AND MY HAT OFF AND MY HEART EXTENDED TO THE VETERANS AND THOSE CURRENTLY SERVING NOT JUST TODAY BUT EVERY DAY!

    Thanks!

  • Can Dividend Growth Stocks Beat Inflation When Held In A Taxable Account? [View article]
    David..thanks for the breakdown. I find the details interesting and it's just giving me a clearer picture of what I want to do. I've been reading as much as I can and reading all the comments. You all have your goals and strategies set but mine are still just not there yet. Actually, my goals are defined but ..that strategy is kicking my ...! Over the years, I've been investing in mutual funds through brokers. And there were years that I was so frustrated on how the funds were managed or lack of. But now I know that DGI is the way to go. My husband and I have been frugal over the past 37 years and were able to also get into the ROTHS back in the 1990's and are maxed out. Our company retirements are maxed out and always living on a budget we have money in a personal account just for investments. Your comment.."make up of each" is probably the thorn in my trigger finger, yes, I do consider the tax implication. Oh, I will figure this out! Then, I want to bring home my husband's ROTH and IRA now handled by a major fund family.
    Thanks again for your honesty.

  • Can Dividend Growth Stocks Beat Inflation When Held In A Taxable Account? [View article]
    David..interesting and helpful comment. Can I ask you, how many stocks do you hold in each? I keep working on the idea of a 50 stock portfolio for 3 portfolios: Personal, ROTH and IRA.

    Also, your continued work on the CCC's is immensely appreciated.

    Thanks, Mico

  • Buffett Agrees - Doing Nothing Is The Path To Investment Success [View article]
    I am a long term investor and I don't need the money now. Previously, I was a frequent trader. Now, I really like the whole approach of DGI and just like everyone else I'm trying to establish portfolios that make sense ie: this article but because of my previous life, frequent trading, I do take into account events coming up. I'm trying to be aware of price, entry points, and yet realizing it's the DGI that I'm setting up. Keeping it simple, at times, is easier said than done..at least for me. Building my dream..great mantra ! (Chowder)

    Larry, great article and thanks for addressing the fiscal cliff. I've been concerned about it as I slowly put a great sum of money to work but you did put the upcoming events in perspective and I will continue taking it slowly.
