1. Bookmarks: 2 Retirement Ready Income Investing: What's In Your Wallet? What good is wealth without income? Your 401k program is NOT retirement ready... even the most popular 2017 Target Date Fund is heavy into the Stock Market. Steve Selengut has been a hands-on, income focused, portfolio manager since 1979. This is the information you need to get from your 401k balances to retirement income independence.
2. Bookmarks: 0 Financial Website Warning Label The purpose of the Sanco Services website is threefold: (1) to promote the somewhat unique (and non-mainstream Wall Street) Investment Strategies of Investment Manager Steve Selengut; (2) to promote the sale of his book entitled The Brainwashing of the American Investor; (3) to provide educational information to the investing public.
3. Bookmarks: 0 What Your Mother Never Told You About Income Investing: Twenty Questions (1 thru 6) Investors are a very dependent group of people, particularly now that most employed persons have been given the responsibility of directing their own savings and investment programs for retirement. Mother Wall Street has monopolized this huge market, and nursed its children first on Mutual Funds and now on derivative betting mechanisms they call index ETFs ---the unhealthy investment equivalent of a diet of fast food, limited protein, and high energy fusion products.
4. 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. Risk comes in various forms, but the average investor’s primary concerns are “credit” and “market” risk, particularly when it comes to investing for income.
5. Bookmarks: 2 Crisis Investing: Are YOU Ready? Why are investors afraid (shocked, confused, overwhelmed, angry) about stock market corrections? Here are links to five assessments of the correction phase of the market cycle that may just clear their heads about these periodic gifts from the Investment Gods. How so YOU spell correction?
6. Bookmarks: 0 The Pure Logic of Income Investing Income Investing is sane, necessary, logical, intellectually pure, purposeful, manageable, predictable, and incredibly easy to understand. Yet, more investment mistakes are made in this area than in stock market investing --- particularly in the area of performance evaluation. As a result, income investors seem much more susceptible to Wall Street manipulation than their equity focused brethren.
7. Bookmarks: 0 ...and Just What is an Investment Grade Value Stock? Wall Street Institutions pay billions of dollars annually to convince the investing public that their Economists, Investment Managers, and Analysts can predict future price movements in specific company shares and trends in the overall Stock Market.
8. Bookmarks: 0 Asset Allocation Based Performance Analysis - One It matters not what lines, numbers, indices, or gurus you worship, you just can't know where the stock market is going or when it will change direction. Too much investor time and analytical effort is wasted trying to predict course corrections… even more is squandered comparing portfolio Market Values with a handful of unrelated indices and averages.
9. Bookmarks: 0 The Economic Impact Of Politics On Investing Just six short months from now we will be asked to elect a leader for the still most powerful economic entity on the planet clearly, we need to focus on broad long term strategies that will create jobs and make it possible for both businesses and individuals to prosper.
10. Bookmarks: 0 Golf and Investing --- Four Important Lessons Golfers will spend thousands on instruction, gadgets, machines, clinics, magazines, lessons, drivers, and putters. Investors love the gimmicks, shortcuts, and expert recommendations, but they seem allergic to anything really educational. They must see it as a sign of weakness. Golfers should be better investors. Investors need to introduce themselves to some basic education.
11. Bookmarks: 0 Trading Your Way To A Secure Retirement Income Attention traders! You can bring your well honed equity skills to the most conservative securities on the planet and absolutely grow a secure retirement income at the very same time. Managed Closed End Funds (CEFs) trade in the same way as common stocks, and on the same exchanges.
12. Bookmarks: 0 Who's Afraid of Higher Interest Rates? A rising interest rate environment is super good news for investors. When we loan money to someone, is it better to get the lowest possible rate for the shortest period of time? Stop looking at income investing with a grow the market value perspective. That's not what it's all about. Lower market values or growing discounts to NAV don't have to be problems... they can be benefits.
13. Bookmarks: 1 WCM Investing - The Process (December 2008) Most people enter the investment process tip first. They hear something, grab an idea from a popular blog, accept a Cramerism or some motley foolishness, and think that they are making investment decisions. Rarely, will the right-now, instant-gratification, Internet-generation speculator think in terms that go beyond tomorrow's breaking news.
14. Bookmarks: 1 Risk Minimization, The Essence of Market Cycle Investment Management The MCIM methodology combines risk minimization, asset allocation, equity trading, investment grade value stock investing, and base income generation in a realistic environment whose time frame recognizes and embraces stock market, interest rate, and economic cycles. It does not exist in either Mutual Fund or ETF form.
15. Bookmarks: 1 What Investors Want & How To Get It: What Investors Want and How To Get It... the between the lines content of The Brainwashing of the American Investor. Investment education that you can sink your teeth into, understand and appreciate quickly, and put into operation quickly and productively.
16. Bookmarks: 2 How To Minimize Risk: A Formula For More Productive Investing Risk minimization requires the identification of what's inside a portfolio. Risk control requires decision-making by the owner of the investment assets. Risk management requires a selection process from a universe of securities that meet a known set of quality standards.
17. Bookmarks: 0 Interest Rates Are Rising - The Sky Is NOT Falling Income investing facts of life: When higher rates are expected, existing security prices fall. lower rate expectations produce higher income security prices. Both conditions can be good news for investors. It's all a matter of understanding... and focus. Wall Street snake oil sales organizations just don't get it. It being the (apparently) much too simple income investing truth that lower market values have pretty much of a zero impact on security disbursements.
18. Bookmarks: 0 Experienced (old?) Investors Love Higher Interest Rates... Say What! Rising Interest Rate Expectations, regardless of their impact on Closed End Fund pricing, have absolutely no impact whatsoever on the income generated by the securities you now own. In fact, higher interest rates will eventually lead to higher payout levels because managers will have access to higher yielding instruments.
19. 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. How far from the truth can they be. Wall Street likes nothing more than to create fear. This book tells you how to put your emotions aside and look for good value on corrections in the market --- it also makes a strong case for profit taking, diversification, and base income generation.
20. Bookmarks: 3 Create Reliable Income: 6% Tax Free; 7% to 8% Taxable This program explains the process within Market Cycle Investment Management retirement income portfolios. This unique approach to income generation boasts a 40 year+ track record of consistent income payments; it is a perfect 401k rollover vehicle... producing multiples of 401k Target Date Fund Income programs.
21. 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!
22. Bookmarks: 0 Cruise Control Hedging: The Basics of Investing 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.
23. Bookmarks: 0 Income Investing --- Selecting ONLY The Good Stuff The larger the portfolio, the more likely it is that you will be able to buy round lots of a diversified group of bonds, preferred stocks, etc. But regardless of size, individual securities of all kinds have liquidity problems, higher risk levels than are necessary, and lower yields spaced out over inconvenient time periods.
24. Bookmarks: 0 Income Investing: Do YOU Have The Right Stuff? When is 3 percent better than 6 percent? Yeah, we all know the answer, but only until the prices of the securities we already own begin to fall. Then, logic and mathematical acumen disappear and we become susceptible to all kinds of special cures for the periodic onset of higher interest rates. We’ll be told to sit in cash until rates stop rising, or to sell the securities we own now, before they lose even more of their precious market value.
25. Bookmarks: 0 Retirement Income Investing Article Library Retirement income planning starts with the first dollar you invest... IRA, 401k, 403b, savings plan, brokerage account, whatever. These articles explain both characteristics and performance expectations. Most importantly, they define purpose. The collection will help you do the job better... in some instances, by viewing the antics of the not so distant past.
26. Bookmarks: 0 Retirement Ready Income Investing Programs If your portfolio has less than 40% invested for income, it is far more speculative than you think.
27. Bookmarks: 0 What Your Mother Never Told You About Income Investing: Twenty Questions (16 thru 20) But, and this is about the biggest news in the history of the financial markets, news that was totally ignored by the financial media: the income generated by taxable income CEFs (other than REITs and mortgage heavy investment funds) actually increased during the financial crisis. The same result was experienced in the Tax Free arena, but with no exceptions at all.
28. Bookmarks: 1 Understanding Fixed Income Investing: Expectations - Part One I’ve come to the conclusion that the Stock Market is an easier medium for investors to understand (i.e., to form behavioral expectations about) than the Fixed Income Market. As unlikely as this sounds, experience proves it, irrefutably.
29. 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.
30. Bookmarks: 1 Preventing Investment Mistakes: Ten Risk Minimizers Losing money on an investment may not be the result of a mistake, and not all mistakes result in monetary losses. Your own misconceptions about how securities react to varying economic, political, and hysterical circumstances are your most vicious enemy. Step away from calendar year, market value thinking. Avoid these ten common errors to improve your performance:
31. Bookmarks: 1 MCIM Methodology Retirement Income Portfolios -Check It Out The MCIM methodology combines risk minimization, asset allocation, equity trading, investment grade value stock (IGVSI) investing, and base income generation in a methodology that embraces the cyclical nature of markets, interest rates, and economies. MCIM produces Retirement Income Readiness.
32. 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.
33. Bookmarks: 0 The Art of Investing: Working Capital Model based Asset Allocation This method of looking at things will get you where you want to be without the hype that Wall Street uses to create unproductive transactions, foolish speculations, and incurable dissatisfaction. It provides a valid use for portfolio Market Value, but far from the judgmental nature Wall Street would like. It's use in this model, as both an expectation clarifier and an action indicator for the portfolio manager on a personal level, should illuminate your light bulb.
34. Bookmarks: 0 Investors Review Their Favorite Investment Book In the midst of financial crisis, market upheaval, and world-class uncertainty, at least one financial book provides an easily implemented strategy for safer investing. The Brainwashing of the American Investor is more than just the book that Wall Street does not want you to read.
35. Bookmarks: 0 What's Inside the Brainwashing Book The Brainwashing of the American Investor is direct, hard-hitting and brutally honest...The title implies a strong message, and the book does not let the reader down. Once Steve Selengut debunks the notion that Wall Street is on your side, he tells you how to take control of your own investments. His strategy is easy to understand and takes the guesswork and emotion out of investing.
36. 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. In the WCM, market value is used as an expectation clarifier and an action indicator for the portfolio manager.
37. Bookmarks: 0 Using the Value Stock Buy List Program Productively - If All Else Fails... AND Expectations Here's a fairly comprehensive Question and Answer [more accurately, a Question & Discussion] list that should help you to use the Value Stock Buy List Program productively covering If All Else Fails... and Expectations.
38. 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.
39. Bookmarks: 0 The Antidote For Investment Doom & Gloom --- Free Webinars The slide shows are generic, Q & A driven, with absolutely no attempt to sell you anything. Please take this opportunity to expand your investment horizons, and to help us get our message out to others who could benefit from this conservative approach to growth and income investing.
40. Bookmarks: 0 Income Investing For Fun and Profit --- Income CEFs Beat S & P 500 Over Past Five Years! Learn how to manage your income portfolio sanely, safely and with yields far in excess of what Wall Street wants you to believe are available. Free income investing webinar explains S & P thumping strategy.
41. 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.
42. 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
43. 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!
44. Bookmarks: 0 Asset Allocation: Investing by the Numbers If you focus exclusively on market value, dwell upon comparisons of your unique portfolio with the market averages, expect performance of some kind during specific time intervals, and listen intently when someone speaks about what the future is all about, any asset allocation work you do will be ineffective.
45. Bookmarks: 0 Managed Asset Allocation: The Art of Staying Focused The key to successful Investment Management is Asset Allocation, the process of dividing the available investment dollars into two, and only two, purpose buckets: Growth and Income. All investment grade securities fit within one of these two classifications, based solely upon the primary purpose for their ownership. There are several key issues involved in successful Asset Allocation.
46. Bookmarks: 1 Value Stock Investing - The November Syndrome On Drugs (November 2008) Always keep in mind that (a) Wall Street has no respect for your intelligence and (b) the media talking heads are entertainers, not investors. Institutions must paint a picture of brilliance in their annual glossies. This year, a panic-stricken Main Street is helping them with their annual sell low hypocrisy.
47. Bookmarks: 0 Zero Overhead Real Estate Investing – Right Now (June 2008) Real Estate investing is not nearly as legally complicated, financially burdensome, or time consuming as you might think. You buy these securities for the income, but always recognize that you have the bonus capability of selling your shares when they rise to an acceptable profit level... so when it comes to Real Estate, think: no attorneys, no debt, and no maintenance equal no problem.
48. 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.
49. Bookmarks: 0 iShares and ETFs: Speculation To The 3rd Power So, in addition to the normal risks associated with investing in general, we add: speculating in narrowly focused sectors, guessing on the prospects of unproven small cap companies, experimenting with securities in single countries, rolling the dice on commodities, and hoping for the eventual success of new technologies.
50. Bookmarks: 0 Golf and Investing: Working The Ball The Working Capital Model is a boring, conservative methodology for lowering the slope rating of the most diabolical wealth accumulation courses. Market hazards are avoided with reasonable expectations, and retirement approach shots that grow the annual income chip by chip, throughout the wealth accumulation period.
51. Bookmarks: 0 Golf and Investing: Tin Cup Lessons For an endless variety of reasons tin cup amateur investors bring on their own demise by failing to minimize risks using well known basic techniques that are thoroughly documented and supported by sand traps full of statistical evidence. They hit driver with every selection--- it's the only club in their bag.
52. Bookmarks: 0 Golf and Investing: Optimism, Focus, and Education Golfers will spend thousands on instruction, gadgets, machines, clinics, magazines, lessons, drivers, and putters. Investors love the gimmicks, shortcuts, and expert recommendations, but they seem allergic to anything really educational. They must see it as a sign of weakness. Golfers should be better investors. Investors need to introduce themselves to some basic education.
53. Bookmarks: 0 Fundamentals of Golf and Investing: Back to Basics Favorite foursome conversations provide clues to the particular fundamental that just failed you, as your duck-hooked tee shot comes to rest at the base of the dead pine tree, and possibly, just beyond the white stake. Have you weakened your grip? comments Larry. Nah, he was lined up that way; went right where he aimed it, Curley offers.
54. Bookmarks: 6 Income Investing: Go Ask Alice When She's... Don't let uniformed thinking sabotage your retirement program; don't let the selfish advice of a product sharpshooter send you chasing rabbits when IRE (interest rate expectations) or other temporary market conditions shrink the market value of your income portfolio. Feed your head; feed---your---head. Income pays the bills, and if the income level is both steady and adequate, there is no need to change investments.
55. Bookmarks: 0 The Flip Side of Rising Interest Rates... Much Higher Yields Note that Wall Street (and the DOL) have (purposely?) kept the investing public uninformed about the totally reasonable yields currently (and historically, before, during, and since the financial crisis) available using Closed End Income Funds... CEF income investors have the ability to add to positions when prices fall (thus reducing cost basis and increasing yield),
56. Bookmarks: 0 I Want Tax Free Income If one wants tax free income, why not buy tax free muni bonds in the form of Closed End Funds.... more than 6% tax free, in monthly increments, plus the opportunity to take profits (taxable, yes) and compound the income until it is needed. Or spend it right away, for that matter.
57. 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.
58. Bookmarks: 2 Manage Shock Market Corrections - Taking The Sting Away The Brainwashing of The American Investor: The Book That Wall Street Does Not Want YOU To Read provides the investing education you didn't get in college, or anywhere else. It helps you figure out what to do right now (feeling like a kid in a candy store)! A must re-read book with thirty four 5 and 4 star Amazon.com reviews.
59. 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.
60. Bookmarks: 0 Successful Investing: Rules Of Engagement Crash! The 2007 thru 2008 financial crisis halved 401(k), IRA, and Mutual Fund values in a matter of months. For many, retirement dates had to be pushed back; for others, new jobs had to be found. The tragic flaw? No income allocation in the investment program. Market value builds egos; income pays the bills.
61. 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
62. 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.
63. Bookmarks: 0 Year End Portfolio Window Dressing... Always Better To Look Smart, etc. Perhaps ninety percent of the price movement in the equity markets is the result of institutional trading, and institutional money managers seem to be more concerned with politics and marketing than they are with investing. They are trying to impress their major clients with their brilliance by reporting ownership of all the hot tickets and none of the major losers.
64. 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
65. Bookmarks: 3 Retirement Income Investment Planning Defined Contribution plans are just not retirement plans --- even if your employee benefits department, the media, Wall Street, and Uncle assure you that they are. Most plans are difficult to self-manage with a retirement income objective. Still, these benefit plans are necessary and quite capable of taking you close to where you want to be.
66. Bookmarks: 11 Investment Management - Put More Smart Cash In Your Future It's smart cash because it is created by the operation of the portfolio and ready for reinvestment. If it remains uninvested while new investment opportunities exist, it loses IQ points rapidly. If you've ever turned an unrealized gain into a realized loss, if you've ever sold mutual fund shares to deal with monthly expenses, if you've ever been unable to take advantage of low prices for lack of income, this is an approach you need to consider.
67. Bookmarks: 3 Income Investing Made Easy - Two Base income includes the dividends and interest produced by your portfolio, without the realized capital gains that may actually be the larger number much of the time. No matter how you slice it, your long-range comfort demands regularly increasing income, and by using your total portfolio cost basis as the benchmark, it's easy to determine where to invest your accumulating cash.
68. Bookmarks: 6 Income Investing Made Easy - One You don't have to be a professional Investment Manager to professionally manage your investment portfolio, but you do need to have a long term plan and know something about Asset Allocation --- a portfolio organization tool that is often misunderstood and almost always improperly used within the financial community. Remember, your unhappiness is Wall Street's most coveted asset. Don't humor them.
69. Bookmarks: 0 Real Estate Investing: No Lawyers, Debt, or Plungers Without having mega millions to work with, or a line of credit that goes around the block, you can have positions in various forms of Real Estate (commercial, industrial, residential) at the same time, and focus either on growth opportunities, income production, or a combination of the two.
70. 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.
71. 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.
72. Bookmarks: 0 What Your Mother Never Told You About Income Investing: Twenty Questions (7 thru 15) Investors should certainly know the basics about what they are doing. Corporations raise capital for their operations by issuing common stock, or shares of ownership in the company. They also raise money by borrowing from banks, insurance companies, and the public through the use of debt instruments called bonds, debentures, notes, and others.
73. Bookmarks: 0 Income Investing: News, Information, Opportunity There are always reasonable explanations for price weakness --- there are always excellent reasons why investors should be viewing price weakness as a buying opportunity. Clearly, the financial press has not attended any of my income investing seminars. Lower prices and higher yields are always good news for income investors.
74. Bookmarks: 0 Your Income Portfolio There are several reasonable explanations for recent Municipal Bond price weakness: Higher interest rates expected; equity portfolio window dressing; weakness of state government treasuries; profit taking in municipal CEFs; speculation about proposed tax code changes; illiquidity of individual bonds; irrational investor fear. There are at least as many excellent reasons why investors should be viewing this weakness as a buying opportunity ---
75. 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.
76. 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?
77. 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.
78. Bookmarks: 0 The Commission Controversy --- Smoke and Mirrors Nowhere in the world of investing is Brainwashing more apparent than in investor (regulator) attitudes toward commissions. Since Charles Schwab first shocked Wall Street by offering discount commission rates, a new industry has developed with a huge, cult-like, following.
79. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Performance: Part 1 Contrary to popular belief and media propaganda, investing is not a competitive event. Rather, it is a uniquely personal and goal directed activity that individuals must organize and control for themselves.It is best dealt with by using the fundamental principles of three disciplines: Investment, Management, and Psychology
80. 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.
81. Bookmarks: 0 Stock and Bond Trading Powers Modern Asset Allocation Trading does not have to be done quickly to be productive, and it doesn't have to focus on higher risk securities to be profitable. And perhaps most importantly, it doesn't have to avoid the interest-rate-sensitive income securities that are so important to the long-term success of any true investment portfolio.
82. 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.
83. Bookmarks: 0 Stock Market Rally vs. Fiscal Cliff --- Got It Covered? There is no need for rocket science in investing --- no correlations, standard deviations, coefficients, Alphas, or Betas are required. There is no reason for anyone to have had zero growth in market values over the past dozen years. Wall Street wants you to accept mass produced mediocrity
84. Bookmarks: 9 Value Stock Investing Articles Key articles from the Value Stock Investing website.
85. Bookmarks: 2 Portfolio Content Analysis As more people choose to manage their own investments without professional advice, their buying/selling strategies can produce investment portfolios with asset allocations that are either inappropriate or dangerous. Similarly, the simplicity of investing the old fashioned way has been obscured by the seemingly limitless variety of packaged investment products with their one-size-fits-all investment and speculation ideas.
86. Bookmarks: 0 An Investor's View of The Fair Tax: A 2012 Resolution A Government that bemoans the population's low savings and investment rates has only itself to blame. The majority of Americans would agree that investing, retirement planning, and estate preservation would be easier to manage if the Internal Revenue Code was comprehensible. A landslide of American voters would elect any candidate championing IRC replacement surgery.
87. 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. In the same time frame, portfolios managed start-to-finish using the Market Cycle Investment Management methodology have gained roughly 113%, in spite of the impact of the recent financial crisis.
88. Bookmarks: 1 Understanding Income Investing – Second Chance Survey Hundreds of people responded to the last Income Investing survey, and all papers were corrected and returned. As a group, the class failed to pass the test of income investing competancy. Here's another chance.
89. Bookmarks: 0 In Value Stock Investing, Quality is Job One You will need to apply consistent and disciplined judgment to your final selection process, but you can be confidant that you are choosing from a select group of higher quality, well-established companies, with a proven track record of profitability and owner awareness. Additionally, as these companies gyrate above and below your purchase price (as they absolutely will), you can be more confident that it is merely the nature of the stock market and not an imminent financial disaster... and that
90. Bookmarks: 7 Understanding Fixed Income Investing: Expectations - Part 2 More recently, the combination of higher rates and a weaker Stock Market has been a Double Whammy for portfolio Market Values, and a double bonanza for investment opportunities. Just like at the Mall, lower securities prices are a good thing for buyers... and higher prices are a good thing for sellers. You need to act on these things with each cyclical change.
91.
