Re: Retirement Investing vs ???

An alternative method and the way it's been recommended is to refill at market highs, so refilling may be every few years. Basically the opposite of being forced to sell low, which is choosing to sell when stocks are at a high value. In down [more]

Re: thinking of 50% in BRKB

Do you plan to make these holdings part of your estate? If not and if you ever plan to use the value 'locked' in these holdings, you will have to realize a gain and pay taxes, provided there are still capital gains taxes. Pay now or pay [more]

Hi Volfan:

buyandwin, I recall that you have a somewhat unique approach within Fooldom, with a strong bias towards dividend-paying stocks. Could you post your present holdings and their approximate yields.</i.

Re: Help for a Newbie please

Everyone starts off doing things differently and at some point it gets too cumbersome and you have to simplify. I started off with not too much money and knowing less than nothing, with a need to learn fast because I had no other means of income. 15 [more]

Re: Been Adding To ARCC -Last Few Days

Hi Dwn:
Welcome to the board. Welcome home.

With the potential increase in leverage from 1:1 to 2:1, a proven BDC like ARCC would be a good buy. It would be a great buy if the price were to drop meaningfully below book. <g> [more]

Re: Risk and The Many Forms of Leverage

I think you missed the point. Leverage is neither good nor bad. Too much leverage is bad.... it becomes a house of cards. Too little leverage COULD mean passing up on opportunities. You tend to want companies using little, if any, leverage AND [more]

Re: Risk and The Many Forms of Leverage

Re: 52 week lows 5/01/'18

It's more profitable to pay a lower price than a higher one when buying stock in a good company, so, it makes sense to me to take 52 week low lists into consideration. Yet, companies land there for a variety of reasons; sometimes multiple [more]
