Re: things you should know the difference betwee

I wish somebody woulda told me that when I tried my hand at real-estate investing. I'd be posting from a Belize beach -- or maybe Monaco.

Re: 10 yr prediction

I read Jim's post closely, and it is not black and white.

But, on average, it

Re: Poll: screen use

Re: things you should know the difference betwee

Well, I think one thing we can all agree on is that both Brian and Tpoto have contributed a great deal.

Tpoto with some of his screens, and his use of sector rotation, using ETFs.

Re: Portfolio construction methods

Mark,

Jack, say it ain't so!

I think he's still a firm believer in indexing, but I think there's always a human side that thinks that they can beat the index, despite what the numbers say 60%, 90% and any number

Re: Portfolio construction methods

I appear to be in the minority on this point, but the statement is most definitely not wrong. John Bogle, who's probably responsible for a TRILLION dollars under management most definitely agrees with me. I think those who chase the large caps [more]

Re: revised SIP screens to fix P/CF

These 2 screens will mostly pick different tickers when using the SIPro screener.

Interestingly, the results are similar. I think it may be that the combination of the price momentum, and the volume ratio gives the screen its umph. [more]

Re: revised SIP screens to fix P/CF

They are almost the same, except 3 pt relative value seems to perform quite a bit better.

using closing high and with no OTC: 33.1 CAGR, 22.7 GSD, 1.33 Sharpe
using intraday high and with no OTC: 30.7 CAGR, [more]
