  • 11% High Yielding OCI Resources Quiet Period Expiring [View article]
    I like the business and think it has room to grow. As to the safety of the distributions, who knows? In the past, i have had some success buying in early at reduced prices and keeping a close watch. Better risk reward than holding some of the often touted, but lower perfoming , " blue chips". Please keep us posted. Thanks

  • It's Time To Add Microsoft To Retirement Portfolios [View article]
    According to your example the couple now have $400,000, which invested in treasuries will grow in 20 years to $455,890. In 20 years, they will be 65. Their shortfall from SS is only $10,000 per year. Setting additional interest on their income and minimal taxes aside, they have $ 455,890 as their assets. They can withdraw $10,000 per year for 45 more years. I do not think they will live to 110 years old. Thanks.

  • It's Time To Add Microsoft To Retirement Portfolios [View article]
    If the couple will spend $45,000 per year during retirement and are paid $35,000 per year in SS, and save only buying treasuries, I do not understand how they have a 17% chance of running out of money. It also seems to me that even a most portfolio of bonds and preferreds would create more income than MSFT and other low paying, low performing common stocks. Thanks.

    You focused on the second part of the title. How about the first part which uses "Your" rather than "You" ? Thanks.
