Welcome to the Gumshoe! This writeup is getting long in the tooth, if you want the updated report on the Escondido Retirement Trust you can find it in these two more recent articles:
I think I’ve sleuthed out another one, but I’m not 99% sure and I don’t have a lot to say about it so I’ll just share this one over at the forum … it’s for another S&A advisory (the 12% Letter), and it’s for a high-income pick called the “Escondido Retirement Trust”
That’s my criteria, by the way — for almost all of the picks I sleuth out here I’m absolutely 100% certain that I’m right, but I’ll still post it even if I’m just 99% sure. Anything less, I don’t want to mislead you so I’ll leave it alone until I get more info.
So come on over and read it, and let me know if you think I’m right.
For those who don’t want to mess with the form: Don’t worry, I’m not going to post many sleuthed solutions over there, but I kind of think of that as a good sounding board for solutions that I’m not certain of. When I’m sure, they’ll show up here at the Gumshoe in detail.
Personal Capital is an advertiser with Stock Gumshoe, but Travis also uses it every day for his personal accounts and finds it invaluable. Here's what he said: "They offer a great (and genuinely FREE) 'second opinion' for your financial plan, but what I love most is their automated financial dashboard -- it will look at all your assets and debts, tally up your asset allocation, project where you'll be at retirement, and suggest ways to manage risk or improve returns. It's free, I think their free tools are great, and I think it's worth checking out -- you can do so here.
