  • How To Retire At 30! [View article]
    Well if they are actually bringing in 80k passively then that is another matter entirely. I'm tempted to doubt your claim because what's the point of the article if the guy is actually making 80k a year? Someone has the wrong info. (Could be Roger, though!)

    He's not out there digging holes, but he is still collecting ordinary income? If that is true, than more power to him! I would totally not show up to a job if I had a blog that brought in 80k a year!

  • How To Retire At 30! [View article]
    Try retiring on $25,000 a year when you get sick (or need to take care of a child OR parent) It's easier to work when you are 39 and healthy than when you are 60 and ill. God forbid either one of them needs any sort of long term care, it will send both of them into bankruptcy.

    This seems like a time bomb waiting to happen for 2 otherwise smart and successful people

  • Why Are mREITs So Prone To Quick Crashes? [View article]
    Its not fair to call them crashes if they end the day unchanged....

    The questions of why mREITs have frequent volatility spikes is complex and deserves a better article. I would bet DIY retirees and retail investors in general own a higher percentage of shares, and have similar risk tolerances. Is a bot stop hunting them? After every spike, or 'crash' there seem to be plenty of buyers moving in.

    I'm not suggesting that these companies are safe or stable, but these spikes in your graph do not seem to correlate with the overall performance of the underlying.

    Can you explain where you got 19 PE for the SPY? I've seen TTM ranges from 15-19 based on what should be a set in stone number!
