  • The Day I Was Surrounded By Market Timers [View article]
    Hi Brad

    Like I wrote, it is a good way to manage individual stocks also and was orriginally developed for that. It takes the emotion out of investing, will gradually have you sell over priced stocks and buy them back as they go down.

    ETFs for me are just another layer of safety and I invest in both ETFs and individual stocks.

    Hi Brad

    You can time the market but not the way most do by trying to predict where it will go. You need to do it unemotionally.

    First you have to decide what you want to always own. Only the amount will change.

    Then you buy as it goes down and sell gradually as it goes up. This is safer with funds as they are really really unlikely to go to zero. A REIT ETF could be one of them.

    Check out the AIM or automatic investment mamagement board on investorshub.com for more info or the book How to make $1,000,000 in the stock market automatically.

    Talk about sleeping well at night. This takes all the emotion out of investing. It captures the voitility of a security instead of just watchig it go up and down.

    Like I wrote above, this is safer with funds, but will work well with individua stocks also.

  • Are There Any Blue Chip REIT Bargains? [View article]
    Data centers will not be located in isolated areas. They will be located on top of the highest concentration of phone lines, maybe buying / renting older phone centers that are no longer needed because of smaller phone equipment size. For example high frequency stock traders want to have the absolute fastest connection they can.

    1) Decide what you want to own
    2) Decide on your allocation to those assets
    3) Rebalance once per year.
    4) Dont put any credence in the financial porn.

  • These REITs Should Weather The Storm [View article]
    Lets say you put half your portfolio in fixed income ( hey the market is high and you dont have an income coming in to add to your investments as it goes down). Put that in a money market fund for now, long term treasury fund when interest rates peak.

    With the rest, put an equal amount in large cap, small cap, foreign, and REIT funds. Rebalance once / year.

    So that would be 12.5% in REITS

  • Is Cohen & Steers Really The King Of REITS? [View article]

    I do not believe CNS is either a REIT or a REIT fund and so it should NOT be compared to either individual REITS or funds like VNQ RWR or ICF?

    I believe it is the management company of Coen and Stears.

    That would be like comparing Fidelity the company to a mutual fund.

  • Are Some Proven Investment Strategies Too Simple To Accept? [View article]
    If I own $10,000 of a security, I sell $1,000 worth if it goes to $11,000. After selling, if it goes to $9,000, I buy $1,000 worth. I NEVER have a realized loss.

  • Why Do Americans Think Housing Is Such A Good Investment? [View article]
    That $30,000 house in the example was bought with $1,500 down. Any return on investment should be figured on that $1,500. But I also got out of physical silver I was given and put it in to a silver stock that I could trade with less commissions.
