Re: Pro Portfolio

No, IGU, I have never done anything that stupid. Not that I have made money on every trade, but I have never let a huge gain turn to a loss.

Some people put in stops, which helps. I just use "mental stops", and watch the trade [more]

Re: Pro Portfolio

I do not believe that the Motley Fool will manage your money.

Beware of Fool money management. Some years ago in one of their model portfolios, they took a position in 3Com. The stock doubled, then went down and they finally sold it at a [more]

Re: Asset Allocation Question

I have never seen the point in asset allocation. You need to be in the assets that are the strongest, and move out of them as they begin to stall out. Then move into whatever else, if anything, that is moving up.

Of course, sometimes nothing [more]

Re: Retired

I do not know how you will know when the stocks have bottomed, assuming the market goes down when you expect it to do so.

The market tends to trend, and the best method I have found is to buy when the uptrend is established, and sell when it [more]

Re: Doctor Hopes to Die at 75

Well, I have had the right knee replaced. Every time the left knee hurts a bit, I just tell it that it can be replaced, and it suddenly gets better. Just a bit of negative re-enforcement.

Well, I am 78, and aside from some back pain, I am fine. I think that the doctor is crazy.

Re: Marriott--Tip Envelopes in Rooms Program

This makes me want to avoid Marriott entirely. I have never left a tip for the maid service. So far as I am concerned, that is part of the room price.

Re: Broke on $400K a year

Absurd expenses. And if they paid $1.2 million for that house, they got taken. Also, nobody needs to pay that much for vacations.

Fundamentally silly stuff.

Re: Dressing up -- shoes

I dated a girl once and only once who carried 2 pair of shoes. One pair was high heels, but she only wore them for show for a little while. The other pair was for walking. Pretty stupid.

Re: mutal funds for my grandson

Re: See no evil... valuation doesn't matter, rig

I don't think it is terribly useful so say that there will be a decline sometime in the next five years. That is rather loose timing. Certainly you need some better knowledge on which to trade.
