  • Should People Listen To John Hussman's Forecasts? [View article]
    Buffett's reputation is based on his investment performance which is in large part based on using a lot of leverage . So I conclude if I followed all of his maxims I can never do as well because I will not use leverage .

    Unless you are covered by your wife's job , health insurance will be a big factor . My quadruple bypass cost Medicare $72000 . You at least need a high deductible policy .

  • Fuel Cell Vehicles And Critical Metals: Supply And Demand [View article]
    Pd is not the catalyst used in fuel cells . Pt is . Pd might find some utility in hydrogen storage but I doubt it . Fuel cells for cars aren't going to be used extensively because there is no distribution system for hydrogen . Other hydrocarbon fuels that can be converted to hydrogen on board might be used but why bother .

  • Sell Disney - It Is Too Expensive [View article]
    My experience is buy recommendations on Seeking Alpha are much more accurate than sell recommendations . Two latest examples are LLY and LO which I sold due to SA articles to my regret . Now comes DIS . I think I'll hold on .

  • 5 Quality Dividend Payers I Bought On The Dip [View article]
    Are you heartbroken when your stocks go up in value and become "overvalued" ? Your delight in your portfolio's decline in value cofounds me . Can't you look for stocks that may be bargains and enjoy the increase in value of the ones you own ?
