  • Considering High-DGR Dividend Growth Stocks [View article]
    Robert Alan Schwartz also show that DGR>8% is not sustainable for 20 or 25 years. Average DGR of US stocks in last 100+ years was 6.5% /http://seekingalpha.co..., so IMO expectations should be in 7% range.

  • 12 Investable Banks Among The Worlds 50 Safest Banks [View article]
    Richard,
    Thank you for good article.

    I look on original list - most banks in top 10 are from Germany & I guess they are not trade in US.

    Well I guess readers are more interesting in safest dividends in D&I section. I did calculations this June using model http://seekingalpha.co... for banks I hold/watch. Safest dividends (low cut probability) had USB SMBC PULB NA.TO WFC HBC STI BNS WBK. I guess Global Finance ignores small banks. Some overlapping with world 50 list exist.

  • How Investors Can Mitigate Their Portfolio Risk In Today's Tumultuous And Volatile World: Part 1 [View article]
    Cranky
    I agree that cheap ETFs or MFs are best for many investors.
    Problem is that index like S&P500 is actively managed, so a recommendation to by e.g. SPY is not fully compatible with MPT.
    Also MFs and ETFs structure is not compatible with some investment styles like DGI which seems serve individuals quite good.

    "Many investors do not like to see their portfolio’s value fall precipitously "
    Any serious sociological study you can refer to?

    Cranky,
    SA doesn't show comments in chronological order (at least at my computers) and I do not see your initial question. When did you posted it? IMO it is better to include date/time of previous comment in message like this.

    Left Banker,

    Why do you ignore grand-kids of a retiree? Does a retiree know how long she will live if she aware about progress in medicine?
    Where in MPT did you find time specification?
    Why financial institutes put huge prevailing effort to manage risk if " risk ... management approach requires less skill"?

    You (and MPT) also assume that investor understand each asset class. DO you?

    Why data in period A (e.g. from 2000-7) dictates that happens in period B (e.g. 2008-2010)? It contradict theoretical claims that technical analysis is useless (I kind of agree with this claim)

    I guess you're forced to overpay for crop insurance (and I for home and car insurances). The insurance itself isn't bad but if we overcharged it is not good. So I partially protect myself from such loss investing in insurance companies (some of them are cash cows which confirms my thesis that we overpay).

  • Do Retirees Need A Dividend ETF Or A Portfolio Of Individual Stocks? [View article]
    Bob,

    1) Unfortunately, iIntrinsic structure of most ETFs and open-end MFs is not compatible with DGI, while closed-end MFs might fit as British recognized ~ 40 years ago - see http://seekingalpha.co... and http://seekingalpha.co... and http://seekingalpha.co....
    2) It seems that DGI idea percolated to Wall Street, so they recently created baloney with DG name in Wisdom Tree.
    3) Nevertheless MFs/ETFs are good for people with limited capital or/and time or/and knowledge on investing. A long-term DGi can do better job http://seekingalpha.co...
    at least in expenses part of the game.
