1. Bookmarks: 0 Managing the Income Portfolio 101 The reason people assume the risks of investing in the first place is the prospect of achieving a higher rate of return than is attainable in a risk free environment --- an FDIC insured bank account.

3. Bookmarks: 1 WCM Investing - The Process (December 2008) Most people enter the investment process tip first.

8. Bookmarks: 0 The Greatest Investment Story Never Told An excellent strategy even in today's investing environment. The current buzz on the street is that investing is dead.

Approximately 330 stocks meet IGVSI quality standards.
12. Bookmarks: 0 Stock Market: Thirteen Months Down, And Now... Brexit Neither a stock market downturn (not even Brexit) nor higher interest rates will have a significant negative impact on my retirement income; they could, in fact, allow me to grow that income even faster!
13. Bookmarks: 0 The Investment Gods Are Still Furious Today's obsession with short-term blinks of the investment eye is Wall Street's attempt to take the market cycle out of the performance picture. Similarly, total return hocus-pocus places artificial significance on bond market values while it obscures the importance of the income produced. MCIM users will have none of it; the investment gods are angry.
14. Bookmarks: 6 Retirement Income Avenues to becoming Retirement Income Ready. After forty years of investing, a few things become crystal clear: you need to focus on quality, individual securities, diversify intelligently, and develop a lifetime supply of income. I call these principles The Big Three or the QDI. Just like the ice cream brick of my youth, it's just not right without all three flavors. The investment puzzle becomes easier to solve if you have a handle on all the pieces.

17. Bookmarks: 0 The Investment Grade Value Stock Index - Continued The IGVSI was developed in December of 2007 to provide a benchmark for the Equity portion of MCIM portfolios managed using Working Capital Model (WCM) disciplines. For more than ten years, Investment Grade Value Stock investors had been frustrated by the inadequacies of the DJIA and the NYSE indices. During that period. NYSE Issue Breadth and New High vs. New Low Statistics moved in different directions than the averages, nearly all of the time.

19. Bookmarks: 0 Wall Street Wisdom vs. Market Cycle Investment Management Corrections are as much a part of the normal Market Cycle as rallies, and they can be brought about by either bad news or good news. Investors always over-analyze when prices become weak and over-indulge when prices are high, thus perpetuating the buy high, sell low Wall Street lunacy.
20. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Performance Evaluation Re-Evaluated: Part One (April 2009) The Working Capital Model (WCM) looks at investment performance differently, less emotionally, and without a whole lot of concern for short-term market value movements. Market value performance evaluation techniques are only used to analyze peak-to-peak market cycle movements over significant time periods.

23. Bookmarks: 0 What Do The Top 100 Newspaper Business Editors Have In Common, Besides Arrogance Should the country's biggest newspaper business editors be interested in a better way to manage investment portfolios than mutual funds or Modern Portfolio Theory speculations about the future? Should they care about an old approach to investing that actually takes advantage of the market cycle? Should they be tired of promulgating the same old and tired Wall Street advice that always seems to take investors in the wrong direction. Yeah, they should.

Bookmarks: 0 Market Cycle Investment Management Rocks Wall Street The Market Cycle Investment Management Methodology (MCIM) is the sum of all the strategies, procedures, controls, and guidelines explained and illustrated within the pages of The Brainwashing of the American Investor --- considered by some Amazon.com readers the best investment book they have ever read.
25. Bookmarks: 0 What's Going On In The Markets?!?! If you were to buy almost any common stock or equity based security (mutual fund, ETF or Equity Closed End Fund), you would be paying a higher price than has ever been paid, by any person, at any time in the history of mankind.
26. Bookmarks: 0 How's Your Investment Portfolio Doing? --- Seven Long-Term Analyzers Before Wall Street conned investors into thinking of calendar quarters as short-term and single years as long-term, market cycles were used to test investment strategies. Performance analysis was a test of management style and overall methodology, not a calendar year horse race with one of the popular averages. Bor-ing, yes--- but meaningful.
27. Bookmarks: 0 The Financial Crisis, and Other Life Changing Investment Lessons On November 30th 2012, the S & P 500 Average (recognized benchmark for assessing the performance of investment managers of all shapes and sizes) was at its highest level in five years --- BUT that translates into a 4% loss over the five years. Others did better. Are you ready for the next correction?
28. Bookmarks: 0 Your Investment Portfolio 2013: Market Cycle Investment Management Users 2013 was a great year for the stock market and a terrible year for the fixed income market... you have benefited from both, and are prepared for directional changes in either. When you invest conservatively, recognizing that you are in a long term program with specific goals, performance is measured in terms of profits taken, income produced, and preparations for changing scenarios.
29. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Performance Expectations and Broker Account Statements Whether you go the discount route through Schwab, Ameritrade, Fidelity, etc., or enjoy a higher level of service through an independent like LMK Wealth Management, you should never be surprised by the market values reflected on your monthly account statement.
30. Bookmarks: 0 Market Lines and Numbers - - - Very Interesting The S & P average has no quality safeguards, no profit-taking discipline, no income requirements or reinvestment protocol, and no asset allocation plan. It is a totally unmanaged entity except for equity content manipulation by S & P Corporation. It is widely accepted as the benchmark against which most equity portfolio managers are measured, and it typically outperforms most of them. But it really only outperforms those professional portfolio managers who are responsible for public participatio
31. Bookmarks: 2 Market Cycle Investment Management Thinking Whatever happened to the Stock Market Cycle; the Interest Rate Cycle; Baby Jane? How did Wall Street get away with pushing these facts of financial life down the basement stairs? Most investors, and some financial advisers, media representatives, and market gurus have abandoned these fascinating curves for the comfort of a straight-edged twelve-month playing field... simple, yes; realistic, not.
32. Bookmarks: 18 Value Stock Buy List Program - What's all the Excitement About? Investor's are discovering an Investment Grade Value Stock Selection and Trading Strategy that makes sense.

33. Bookmarks: 0 Crisis Investing - The Three-Pronged MCIM Strategy Unfortunately, investors in general are a lot like teenagers. They know everything immediately; expect instant gratification; take unnecessary risks; fall in love too easily; ignore all voices of experience; prefer the easy approach; and feel that the lessons of the past just can't possibly apply to what's going on now. Duh, dude!
34. Bookmarks: 1 MCIM Strategies Produce Better Retirement Income The Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) methodology for managed asset allocation was developed in the 1970s.

36. Bookmarks: 0 Modern Investment Thinking: A Plague O' Both Your Houses MPT doesn't just ignore all fundamental analytics while playing Frankenstein with technical analysis, it also pays no attention to the reality of market, interest rate, and economic cycles. It goes beyond real numbers and rational thinking by creating new and refined numbers --- supercharged to impress the intellectual elite while doing nothing to create dependable income streams for retirees.-
37. Bookmarks: 0 A Preemptive, Timeless, Portfolio Protection Strategy Both Market Cycle Investment Management and The Working Capital Model were nearly ten years old when the robust 1987 rally became the dreaded Black Monday, (computer loop?) correction on October 19th. Sudden and sharp, that 50% or so correction proved the applicability of a methodology that had fared well in earlier minor downturns.
38. Bookmarks: 0 MarketWatch Column Bashes ETFs (and By Extension)... Mutual Funds The ‘F’ in ETF stands for “funds,” and it’s only because ETMF is longer that they are not widely recognized as “exchange-traded mutual funds.” In some cases—with Vanguard’s ETFs, for example—ETFs are simply a different share class of the same underlying pool of assets and management style.
39. Bookmarks: 0 Ten Investment Strategy Articles Risk is compounded by ignorance, multiplied by gimmickry, and exacerbated by emotion. It is halved with education, ameliorated with cost-based asset allocation, and managed with disciplined: selection quality, diversification, and income rules--- The QDI. Learn to distinguish between asset allocation and diversification. Asset allocation divides the portfolio between equity and income securities. Diversification limits the size of individual and sector holdings. Both hedge against the risk of
40. Bookmarks: 0 A Stock Market Correction Is A Beautiful Thing A correction is a beautiful thing, simply the flip side of a rally, big or small. Theoretically, even technically I'm told, corrections adjust equity prices to their actual value or support levels. In reality, it's much easier than that. Here's a list of ten things to think about doing, or to avoid doing, during corrections of any magnitude. There has never been a correction/rally that has not succumbed to the next rally/correction ---
41. Bookmarks: 0 Baby Boomer Alert: Prepare for the Dreaded RMD If you are within five years of retirement right now, at the top of a stock market cycle, what are you waiting for! Sell the Funds, sell the ETFs, and move into safer positions... if you can find them within the plan's product menu.
42. Bookmarks: 0 To Rollover 401k Plan Assets or Not To... That Is The Question Interestingly, all the major 401k product providers, also manage Closed End Fund product lines that generate generous income, even after higher fees. These fees, so important to regulators and politicians, are never paid by the recipients of the much higher income.
43. Bookmarks: 0 THE DISMAL DECADE MY ASSTERISK- 11/30/99 THRU 12/31/2009 This spreadsheet summarizes the manual analysis of 55 individual portfolios managed using WCM based Market Cycle Investment Management procedures and techniques.

Bookmarks: 0 Money Magazine 401k Investment Article Directory Market Cycle Investment Management is a unique, long-term trading approach that focuses on Investment Grade Value Stocks, the very highest quality NYSE, dividend paying companies. A wide variety of Income Closed End Funds is used to populate the Income Bucket of all portfolios. MCIM, the IGVSI, and income purpose investing is now available in 401k plans.
45. Bookmarks: 0 401k Plans Are Retirement Programs - NOT So long as we are in an environment where retirement plan income (and principal in the case of all private plans) is subject to income taxation, 401(k) participants would be wise to establish an after tax income portfolio invested in tax exempt securities--- or to vote more selfishly.
46. Bookmarks: 0 New 401k Approach Focuses on Income Production and Correction Preparation 401(k) Savings Plans are great opportunities to build wealth, but they are not guaranteed pension programs and there are pitfalls. What if you are forced to retire at the bottom of a market cycle, or at a time of historically low interest rates? Qualified or not as an investor, you have to make your own 401(k) investment decisions.
47. Bookmarks: 0 Create a Pension Plan Within Your 401(k) 401(k) Savings Plans are great opportunities to build wealth, but they are not guaranteed pension programs and there are pitfalls. What if you are forced to retire at the bottom of a market cycle, or at a time of historically low interest rates? Qualified or not as an investor, you have to make your own 401(k) investment decisions. Eventually, you will have to create your own income portfolio.
48. Bookmarks: 0 Lemmings At Financial Cliff: Ten Do's and Don'ts A rally is a beautiful thing, particularly when the correction preceding it was embraced enthusiastically. This is the time to harvest your profits, pipe dreams of incredible wealth and ego aside --- jump on those profits before they erode before your disbelieving eyes. If you over think the environment or over cook the research, you'll absolutely lose the profits. Unlike many things in life, stock market realities need to be dealt with quickly, decisively, and with zero hindsight.
49. Bookmarks: 2 Working Capital Model ~ Market Cycle Investment Management Performance In the longer term scheme of things, a well defined, well organized, and quality based investment model will just naturally out-perform those that are not similarly constructed --- it's getting to that level of management expertise that is the issue.
50. Bookmarks: 0 Let's Make 401k Plans Behave More Like Retirement Plans Although it is true that you do not pay taxes on your contributions during the earning years, you will absolutely pay through both nostrils when you retire. If your karma is off, you may find yourself retiring at a time when the stock market is not in a party mood and your shrinking mutual funds don't seem quite as secure as they did a few months earlier. We can deal with the market cycle; a saner tax code is a much bigger problem
51. Bookmarks: 1 A Dismal Decade? No Way With Market Cycle Investing Once again The Wizards attempted to debug the market cycle and create an upward only future for the masses. But the markets weren't broken, just the market shakers. Your portfolio could have been up in market value--- and not by just a little for the dismal decade.
52. Bookmarks: 0 The Greatest Financial Story Never Told How would you have fared if you were cash rich in September 1987 and fully invested by the end of October? What if, in the time leading up to the dot-com bubble, your credo was: no NASDAQ, no Mutual Funds, no IPOs/ Investment Grade Value Stocks only?
53. Bookmarks: 2 Making A Volatile Stock Market Your VBF (very best friend) Call it foresight, or hindsight if you want to be argumentative, but a long-term view of the investment process eliminates the guesswork and points pretty clearly toward a trading mentality that keys on the very natural volatility of the hundreds of investment grade value stocks out there for your portfolio building attention. Market Cycle Investment Management makes market volatility your Very Best Friend
54. Bookmarks: 1 Harnessing Stock Market Volatility On the bright side, enhanced market volatility enhances the power of the equity and income security trading disciplines and strategies within the Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) methodology --- an approach to market reality that embraces market turbulence, and harnesses market volatility for results that leave most professionals either speechless or in denial.
55. Bookmarks: 1 Attention Wall Street Shoppers: Always, Yes Always, Sell Too Soon The market has never and will never be a one way ticket to ride (smile Beatles fans). None of the important aspects of the voyage (highs, lows, volatility, or duration) are predictable, by anyone, no matter how overpaid or well credentialed. Sooner or later, some gutsy financial gurus will declare the stock market overbought and fraught with danger.
56. Bookmarks: 0 Forming Valid Income Investing Expectations - Part Two The critical relationship between the two classes of securities in your portfolio, is this: the market value of your equity investments and that of your income purpose investments are totally, and completely unrelated. Each Market dances to it's own beat. Stocks are like heavy metal or Rap...impossible to predict. Bonds are more like the classics and old time rock-and-roll...much more predictable.
57. Bookmarks: 0 Forming Valid Income Investing Expectations - Part One I've come to the conclusion that the stock market is an easier medium for investors to understand (to form behavioral expectations about) than the fixed income market. As unlikely as this sounds, experience proves it, irrefutably. When dealing with income purpose securities neither investors nor their advisors are comfortable with any downward movement at all.
58. Bookmarks: 0 Tax Free, Municipal Bonds Yielding nearly 7%. Interested? Of course you should be interested. There are at least eight reasonable explanations for recent Municipal Bond price weakness --- there are at least eight excellent reasons why investors should be viewing this weakness as a buying opportunity. Lower prices and higher yields are good news for income investors!
59. Bookmarks: 0 Managing the Income Portfolio - 201 With equities, take a reasonable profit (between 8 and 10%) as frequently as possible; with income CEFs, a year's income in advance is the acid test if under 10%. With a 40% income allocation, 40% of profits and dividends would be allocated to income securities and assures that income growth will happen.
60. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Portfolio Update: What's In Your Wallet? Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) portfolios are not equity only portfolios, so it makes little sense to compare their performance to stock market indices. MCIM portfolios are designed to grow income producing Working Capital in a higher quality, lower risk environment over the course of the investors life cycle. There are two distinctly different cycles at play here, all the time.
61. Bookmarks: 0 Life Cycle Portfolios Deliver Pension-Like Benefits: Free Webinar Mutual Fund managers can't beat the averages because the managers must do what unit holders tell them to do. They can't buy low and sell high, and they must buy high and sell low --- not what you would call a winning (or index beating) combination. What do you think will happen to ETF prices when there is a correction? Are they any different, even without a manager?
62. Bookmarks: 0 Market Cycle Investment Management - FREE Webinars September 17th & October 16th The Market Cycle Investment Management Methodology (MCIM) is the sum of all the strategies, procedures, controls, and guidelines explained and illustrated within the pages of The Brainwashing of the American Investor --- considered by some Amazon.com readers the best investment book they have ever read.
63. Bookmarks: 0 Municipal Bond Investing --- The 6% Tax Free Solution What if you could choose from a group of 65 tax free municipal bond funds, paying monthly income at an annual rate of roughly 6%? What if you could invest in 32 tax free Closed End Funds paying an annual rate above 6.2%? Why hasn't your investment advisor/accountant/rich uncle told you that this is what he has been doing for upwards of twenty years?
64. Bookmarks: 0 Tax Code Strikes Again --- Proven Cause of Early Onset Investor Dementia How could any investor not be thrilled with large amounts of capital gains on top of significant tax free income? Concerned that an income tax liability is created by such wanton disregard for the tax code, some investors actually prefer to have no short term profits at all! Talk about shooting oneself in the foot.
65. Bookmarks: 1 Investment IQ Test The Investment IQ Test is designed to gauge your understanding of the concepts and strategies needed to productively manage your portfolio in today's much too complex market environment. Naturally, it is based on Market Cycle Investment Management Methodology and the Working Capital Model operating system.
66. Bookmarks: 0 When Your Ship Comes In --- Lottery, Signing Bonus, Inheritance, Etc. Lottery winners, professional athletes, celebrity varietals, and windfall recipients in general have at least one thing in common --- and it isn't their extraordinary luck or talent. Far too many wind up wondering where all the money went and how it disappeared so quickly.
67. Bookmarks: 0 Working Capital Model ~ Market Cycle Investment Management Performance A well defined, well organized, and quality based investment model will just naturally out-perform those that are not similarly constructed --- it's getting to that level of management expertise that is the issue.
68. Bookmarks: 2 Investment Performance Expectations: MCIM Portfolio Fine Tuning How can I get you to stop fixating on monthly market values and to focus on the purpose of the securities within the portfolio? Most of us are trained to deal with seasons, fashion trends, biological changes, waning sports dynasties, sunspots, etc. Instinctively, we expect, and prepare for change effectively--- except when it comes to investing, where planning and preparation is only talked about.
69. Bookmarks: 0 The Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) Program Investing with a calendar year focus has no basis in the realities of finance, business, or economics... isn't it obvious that the Stock and Bond Markets are far more closely related to the Business Cycle than to the Earth's around the Sun? The Market Cycle Investment Management Account Program provides better guidance--- and results.
70. Bookmarks: 0 Attention Investors: It's Time To Check Your Asset Allocation Formula Wall Street is celebrating its meteoric five year and three month rise to approximately where it was toward the end of 2007 and, just a skosh above where it was way back in 1999. Why are they so excited about this fourteen year march to nowhere? How could Market Cycle Investment Management have improved on such dismal performance? Read'em and weep!

73. Bookmarks: 10 The Ten-Workshop Road to Better Investment Performance --- Yeah, They're FREE! Most investors jump into their investment programs without a clear understanding of the process, the securities, or the risks involved in the effort. Few hold valid expectations, and most choose to ignore the cyclical nature of the investment marketplace. This poor preparation is an endemic problem of our society, made profitable by Wall Street, for Wall Street.
74. Bookmarks: 0 High Dividend ETFs - An Equity-Income Investment Fantasy Market Cycle Investment Portfolios are investment portfolios; ETFs in general are derivative gambling devices; High Dividend ETFs are quality-and-income equity derivative gambling devices that could be useful around the bottom of the next correction --- the next prolonged correction, that is. There is absolutely not one molecule of similarity between any MCIM portfolio and any Index ETF, period.

77. Bookmarks: 3 Stock Market Perspective 2011 --- Some Things to Think About Always, every time and without exception, the general media has predicted the end of the financial world, financial experts have pointed out the remarkable differences from the last correction, and investors everywhere have been encouraged to take their losses and sit on cash or gold until the smoke clears. Every time, the short sighted fear mongers have been wrong. Not just most of the time mind you --- absolutely all of the time.

IGVSI Eclipses 2007 All Time High --- above 2007 levels since mid-February 2011 --- now up 6.9%; ahead of DOW and S & P by roughly 19%.

Bookmarks: 2 Old Fashioned Equity Investing - Building A Better Mousetrap Since the level it achieved just prior to the bursting dot-com bubble in 2000, the S & P 500 Average (on October 15th 2010) had lost 17% of its market value.

The Glossary in The Brainwashing of the American Investor defines terms like bargain and Investment Grade Value Stock.
88. Bookmarks: 0 Beating the Dow Jones and The S & P 500 Bunkie?!? Unlike most investment strategies, the Market Cycle Investment Management methodology includes a selling-for-profit discipline that (incredulously) seems to be a unique investment model. Over the past 40+ years, MCIM users have taken profits during every market upswing and repurchased Investment Grade Value Stocks during every down bubble. Any feel for what the results must have been?
89. Bookmarks: 1 A GPS For Your Investment Portfolio Hey 'Deep Pockets', what were you doing on October 19th, 1987, the Wall Street Jungle reporter asked? I was gritting my teeth, shaking more than just a little, palms sweaty but placing dozens of individual orders for the best NYSE, dividend-paying, companies --- at prices that nearly everyone thought would drop even further.
