  • In Markets That Do Not Make Sense, Dividends Make Dollars [View article]
    Like the idea of a small cap. But, might be a little to volatile for right now? Appears fairly valued at the moment. No dividend growth though. Only increase in divvy throughout its recent history was in '12 . Might want to watch this one for a while. :)

  • The Best Way To Hedge Against A Stock Market Decline [View article]
    I have used TLT in the past as a hedge for stocks. Currently have a position serving that purpose now. Considering adding to it a bit because of the future uncertainties. Agree with your advice. Just need to be careful in how long we keep the hedge on. A rise in interest rates will greatly impact TLT. I think rate rises are still some time away, though? Your thoughts?

  • Consider Making Additional Changes To Your Income Allocations [View article]
    I agree. Currently have about 50 % in fixed income. Bond portfolio's duration about 4. Then 15 % cash and the rest mostly in stocks.

  • What Does A Big Market Correction Actually Look Like? [View article]
    Your best article to date. The examples you give for corrections are sound as justify that there is little need to panic. The key is hopefully the dividends won't be cut and income doesn't change. That will let you ride out a correction if you stay calm. I really like when you post the original price of the investments. That gives us excellent target prices. Your advice on spending and saving is sound and to the point. Sage advice to live and prosper by.

    Agree. Own PG and JNJ for the long haul. Looking for an entry point on IBM, but not quite there yet. Maybe $175?

  • General Electric: How Safe Is The Dividend? [View article]
    Agree with your conclusion on GE's ability to pay dividend. Interesting approach for your analyses! I've hesitated buying shares though because the total return over recent years has not been good. I would appreciate your thoughts on GE as an investment versus just it's ability to pay the dividend.

    A fellow bulldog. Go dawg's!!
