Re: Home Ownership not a good investment

I just had a bill to pay,

it was an individual decision to pay the house off yet still invest.

Everyone has to make their own decision on what's right for them.

And cross their fingers as we have.

Re: Home Ownership not a good investment

Looking back at Historical stock gains are interesting but they do not give a clear indication of a given day, a given moment, or even given stock.

Overall returns do not state that everyone got those returns.

Re: My $10,000 Monday

We heard a thump with Hurricane Sandy
and know what it feels like to worry thru the night and
try to be safe.

Geese Repellent

Has anyone used 'Stop The Drop w/Flight Control Plus' on your property?

Just wondering what the results were...
And if anyone has figured out the application rates - it's a bit confusing, at least to me...

StockGoddess,
You got that right - it worked...at least in our situation.

I see so many few posts of substance, but of course I can offer none as well. Bad on my part.

2gifts,
You prove a point. Yes, rough patches.
But in your case pouring into a high market would not be good either.

Re: Home Ownership not a good investment

I should clarify...given my 'own the doorknob' statement.

We paid for our house and it was a savings for us.

Re: Looking for Help 401k bond funds

Well, that's the thing...

If I had a chunk of money or still was in the 'investing mode' stashing 30% of my income, I'd be scratching my head on what to buy now. Stocks aren't a bargain and CDs are like 1.25% or so. [more]
