Re: My retirement portfolio is dwindling

I'm wondering if I should sell a portion of apple and free up some of my cash to buy current fool recommendations.

Ditto what's been said above, and I'll just add: if you're going to take proceeds from AAPL and buy "current fool [more]

Re: What ails SAM?

As one of my favorite buy signals, I like to use the weekly RSI TA indicator, which is somewhat akin to the BMW Method in that it measures the movements of a stock relative to its own history. I've had SAM on my watch list for a few years now, [more]

Re: NGVC free fall

Hi KC,

I successfully traded in and out of NGVC a couple times a year ago, but thankful to be watching from the sidelines this week. The one store that I visited in Eugene just had a "dead" feel to it that turned me off, and I [more]

Re: CMG

I'd be interested in the 200 - 300 range. There's a chance we get there after earnings in a few weeks. I'm betting Q1 is going to look BAD.

The next CMG earnings and subsequent market reaction is going to be one of the most [more]

Re: Staying Fully Invested

There is definitely an "other side of the coin" to be looked at.

Slightly different methodology here--just looking at the 10 best and worst days since 1950--but an investor who stayed out the whole weeks that included the 10 best [more]

Re: 2016 Most Ethical Company List

I really didn't expect Waste Management to perform so well, frankly! I just thought it would be a nice boring one that would do ok and be good for diversification but maybe more importantly, probably wouldn't be terribly [more]

Re: 2016 Most Ethical Company List

I contacted them about returns, and apparently these companies outperformed the S&P last year by 3.2%. That's obviously not by a ton, but I would add that with the bull market being kind of crazy as it has been, it isn't exactly easy to [more]

Re: Does SRI Make Financial Sense?

I think SRI's problem with everyone having an individual definition for the term is a downside for the majority of investors who rely on mutual funds. You would have to find a fund manager who agrees with your definition in order to be [more]

Re: A 403 (b) is like a 401 (k) except it's not.

• Single vendor plans, which would greatly lower costs and simplify matters, are not required in 403(b)s
