    Go Lakers,
    "But given price appreciation exists, why ignore it? That's the TRI view."
    It's not ignored, and exists for DG stocks too. It simply isn't the focus for many.

    The thing "ignored" is price depreciation. It also exists and happens.

    djean, thanks for the link, but ...
    "If you (or your spouse) earn taxable income and are under age 70 ½, you can contribute. It's as easy as that."
    When retired, you probably don't have earned income.
    You may have $200k of unearned income (or should hope to), but ...

    Norman,
    One question about the RMD issue your facing. I assume you are now paying the taxes you deferred when contributed. Is this now more or less or the same as when the contributions were made.

  • How You Can Invest Like Warren Buffett [View article]
    "Why not just 'buy the SPY' and forget about it? "
    The simple answer is, it might not fit your needs/goals.
    I could counter with why not just buy 'bonds' and forget about it.

    I invest for total return, I simply have a different means of determining "value", and it isn't "price" or "book".

    "the consumer wins because prices are lower"
    I would check into that ...

    "the productivity of the world increases because of economy of scale"
    That is HUGE stretch ... I would surmise that the productivity of the world has very little to do with Amazon's scale.

    "company wins because they achieve dominance in their space"
    The retailing space? ... That isn't historically high margin. Don't get me wrong 1% of billions isn't bad, Walmart has shown this already ...

    Chuck,

    Thanks for the detailed answer.

    My question was, to an extent, to elicit an answer of what constitutes "long" term. A 3-7 year frame isn't outside a norm I also subscribe to.

    Of note, "long term capital gains" are 1 year for the IRS.

    Chuck,
    " Instead, they were simply utilized to illustrate the importance of earnings as a driver of stock values over the long run."

    Do you have examples where that isn't the case?
    Or rather, what's a "long run"?

    While I agree with the premise, how long is long ....
