On "Stocks with the Power to Multiply Your Money AND ALSO Pay You 9% Dividend Yields"
Thanks Travis, I should own a few stocks like this.[...]
On $82 billion opportunity disappearing soon? (Frank Curzio's Phase 1)
Curzio seems to be having a hard time these days. Many of the recommendations have gone nowhere or south in his Small-Stock Specialist from what I can see. There were a few ok ones back a year ago but since it seems he is looking for new life.[...]
On "How to Make a Fortune with 'The Next Warren Buffett'"
Berkshire is the next Berkshire! I like Loews and want to own at least $10K worth and am happy with my current position, however, I have no idea if the performance will be similar to Berkshire or even better, there is no way to tell, but in the interest o[...]
On Explaining "770 Accounts" and Palm Beach's "How to Fund Your Own Worry-Free, 100% Tax-Free Retirement."
PS I personally have around 40% of my holdings in these indexes and around 40% in Dividend Growth stocks and the other 20% in whatever turns me on. I try to keep sector allocations balanced and position sizes low (1-2%) so everything is diversified.[...]
On Explaining "770 Accounts" and Palm Beach's "How to Fund Your Own Worry-Free, 100% Tax-Free Retirement."
THERE is NO RISK FREE! The top 10 companies that make up VYM and VIG if held in equal proportions are the closest thing to a reduced risk you can get but the index might do better in the long run! It *might*, there is no guarantee.[...]
On Explaining "770 Accounts" and Palm Beach's "How to Fund Your Own Worry-Free, 100% Tax-Free Retirement."
Yeah and if you held it then through today it has over 112% gain in that period, so what?! In my opinion a balance of Index Funds must perform better over time through the ups and downs then some basket of an insurance company's profits. Everyone wants to [...]
On "Once You Grab Your First Payday, You’ll Never Put Your Money in a CD Again"
The most stable REITs will be found in the Holdings of VNQ, however, you should calculate your risk and exposure, not sure you want to park 100% of your ROTH IRA contributions in REIT, much better (IMHO) to develop a target allocation and stick with it, th[...]
On "Once You Grab Your First Payday, You’ll Never Put Your Money in a CD Again"
Hey Quincy, great hints at the kind of attention these sorts of positions require, and nice to see you are on with tighter stops this go around. Best regards.[...]
On What's Cabot's "best stock in the market across all sectors" Today?
Should I feel offended these guys are trying to sell me a tip after it has grown for 2 years?! 1/2 position, 25% stop loss might be in order, but only after I satisfy current plans, thanks.[...]
On "I Bet You $117,238.20 That This Stock Explodes in 2013" (Motley Fool's "Get Rich on Wednesday" Pick)
ps - as for the business of zixi, they provide a great service, mostly to corporate accounts, in my opinion it is going to be similar to MSFT but much much smaller once it levels off. They are not exposed to operating systems, database/office productivity [...]
On "I Bet You $117,238.20 That This Stock Explodes in 2013" (Motley Fool's "Get Rich on Wednesday" Pick)
I bought a half position in Jan/2013 and as you can see it has climbed from there, up almost 40%, however, right now it is very close to the 52 week high, not sure where it is going from here, I have a trailing stop and will sell it if it ever hits that. I[...]
On "The Boomer Index ... best income investment in America right now" (Zach Scheidt)
JNJ is on my dividend grower list, will fill out that position soon. Best regards and thanks for the great article.[...]

Yeah, hindsight is cool, isn't it!?[...]
On "Collect the equivalent of a year’s worth of dividends in one month!"
Yeah, Jeff Clark is the man when discussing how to minimize risk when trading options. As I have said before I have not yet done an options strategy. The main reason is I did not want to start small and flounder with a few positions but have an "options po[...]
On "Collect the equivalent of a year’s worth of dividends in one month!"
@john - yes! I have some that are up over 40%, a very strong feeling indeed![...]
On "Collect the equivalent of a year’s worth of dividends in one month!"
Doc makes it pretty clear in the literature that we are trading with stocks that we ultimately desire to hold, so if it is put to us then we can hold it for the duration and/or turn around and sell calls on it, I am not doing either but that is what they a[...]
On "Collect the equivalent of a year’s worth of dividends in one month!"
Hi, fyi I am subscribed to Daily Wealth but have not implemented it yet. I don't really like the language much and the executions are very scary and not very many, so too few to really count as making 20% in a year like they say it (as if it meant your ent[...]
On Explaining "770 Accounts" and Palm Beach's "How to Fund Your Own Worry-Free, 100% Tax-Free Retirement."
It depends on how much assets you have and how you have structured their passing to heirs when the time comes. If you are above your means and have some stored away it might behoove you to put some of those assets into something that will directly pass to [...]
On "The Santa Claus Bubble of 2013" -- David Gardner's Online College "Rule Breaker"
I am an Irregular, the ads are there, they are automatic, they do not seem overbearing to me compared to many other sites. They are not necessarily recommended as they are automatic and most likely a supplementary source of income for the site. The best re[...]
On "Small-Cap Superstar That Cisco, Verizon and Comcast Can't Do Without!"
I have some S&A subscriptions. There is no doubt PBL is connected, if not run out of the same operation as I see pitches for it in the S&A literature from time to time (have you grown tired of reading all the teasers? There is a way to avoid most of it and[...]
