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 Investment Grade Value Stocks - Quality Is Job One How much financial bloodshed is necessary before we realize that there is no safe and easy shortcut to investment success? When do we learn that most of our mistakes involve our very own greed, fear, and unrealistic expectations? How do we create a confidence inspiring stock selection universe?
4. 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.
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: 4 A Must Read For Experienced And Novice Investors: 29 5-Star Reviews A must read because you're in it! The book goes into depth on how to choose a diverse group of quality investments, both for growth and for income. The strategy is methodical and the first month I implemented it on my accounts I started to see results....my profits improved and I'm ensured a monthly income even if I don't trade
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. Bookmarks: 6 Purpose Based Asset Allocation: The Working Capital Model Asset Allocation is an Investment Planning Tool, not an Investment Strategy. WCM facilitates long term, retirement income, investment planning by focusing on selection quality, issue diversification, and annual growth of both base income and invested capital. Neither market value nor the calendar year are perceived as relevant decision making criteria.
12. Bookmarks: 0 The Real Scoop on Annuities - Part One Insurance companies have always been big time financial institutions, and they could probably have claimed possession of the largest and safest investment portfolios on the planet. At one time, their role vis-à-vis Wall Street was clearly that of a giant customer for the securities the investment banks brought to market and which the securities firms distributed.
13. 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.
14. 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.
15. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Fruitcake Portfolio design, in its simplest form, is a fruitcake of apples, oranges, and dough. The recipe (asset allocation) is about as straightforward as it can be, the ingredients (equity and income securities) can be well known and of unquestioned quality, and their reactions to time, and cyclical mood are well documented.
16. 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.
17. Bookmarks: 0 Stock Market Explodes After Trump Victory; Income CEFs Only Remaining Bargain What happens in the future is unpredictable, but understanding the past and how it impacts your unique portfolio, is essential to your long-run investment comfort --- and sanity. The IGVS Expectation Analyzer has been developed for investors who want to view their monthly statements with reasonable expectations.
18. Bookmarks: 1 New 52-Week Highs Swamp Lows Since Trump Victory; Eighteen Days and Counting The New High and New Low issue stats can identify weaker and/or stronger sectors within the Investment Grade Value Stock selection universe --- very important in helping investors determine where the bargains are and where the profit taking opportunities should be.
19. Bookmarks: 0 Stock Market Issue Breadth Strong Since Trump Victory IGVSI breadth statistics signal changes in direction within Investment Grade Value Stocks only --- all CEFs, ETFs, REITs, and preferreds (and individual issues that are NOT investment grade) are excluded. Issue Breadth Statistics should allow investors to look inside an index to obtain a better feel for what has been going on.
20. Bookmarks: 1 Market Rally Resumes; Trump Election Excites the Stock Market The fewer IGVSI equities at bargain prices, the stronger the market and the more Smart Cash that should be accumulating in the equity bucket of your portfolio. As the list of bargain IGVSs grows (indicating market weakness), portfolio Smart Cash should be finding its way back into undervalued securities.
21. Bookmarks: 2 IGVSI Up 16% thru November; Twice the Gain in the S & P 500 The IGVSI is a barometer of a small but elite sector of the stock market called Investment Grade Value Stocks. Some IGVSI companies are included in all averages and indices, but no other index follows only the very highest quality companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Approximately 330 stocks meet IGVSI quality standards.
22. 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.
23. Bookmarks: 6 Stock Market Correction: Month Nine And Counting Repetition is good for the brain's CPU, so forgive me for reinforcing what I've said in the face of every correction since 1979... if you don't love corrections, you really don't understand the financial markets. Don't be insulted, it seems as though very few financial professionals want you to see it this way and, in fact, Institutional Wall Street loves it when individual investors panic in the face of uncertainty.
24. 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:
25. 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.
26. Bookmarks: 1 MCIM Q & A and Contact Information Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) reflects the unique strategies, procedures and disciplines documented in the books and articles of professional investor Steve Selengut, CEO/Consultant at Sanco Services Inc. and Senior Instructor at Kiawah Golf Investment Seminars.
27. 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.
28. 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.
29. 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.
30. 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.
31. 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.
32. Bookmarks: 0 Asset Allocation for Foundation and Endowment Investment Portfolios - Part 2 (February 2008) One can only speculate about how much Bubble Paper finds its way into the these portfolios, but nearly all of them are managed by the major brokerage firms, and all such firms bonus their brokers on the basis of product sales. It is not uncommon for Wall Street to re-write the syllabus for Investments 101, redefining Quality, Diversification, and Income to suit its own dark purposes.
33. Bookmarks: 0 Wall Street Transcript Interviews with Manager Steve Selengut - Part 1 Could you just give us a brief description of Sanco Services and your responsibilities there?
34. 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.
35. 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.
36. Bookmarks: 1 How To Make Short Term Trading Your Long Term Investment Strategy But most programs are designed to reward the genius and hard work of their creators, not the passive involvement of add to cart speculators looking for assistance making investment decisions. Face it people, much as I still love the over-regulated markets that we call Wall Street, the Master's of the Universe are clearly more interested in enhancing their own wealth then ours.
37. 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.
38. 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.
39. 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?
40. 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.
41. 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.
42. 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. Merritt Information Strategies has developed a multiple level spreadsheet program that allows you to implement the Market Cycle Investment Management methodology documented in The Brainwashing of the American Investor, inexpensively and productively, on your own PC, whenever...
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 Investment Performance Evaluation Re-Evaluated: Part Two (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.
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 The Real Scoop on Annuities - Part Two (March, 2008) Today, it's difficult to distinguish one financial institution from another as they compete for the ever-growing pool of investment dollars. Insurance companies, now publicly owned, have become am integral part of an industry that seems uninterested in protecting anything other than their obscenely paid leaders.
48. Bookmarks: 1 Wall Street Transcript Interviews with Manager Steve Selengut - Part 5 What are your clients talking to you about these days? What are their concerns and expectations on the market?
49. 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.-
50. 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.
51. 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.
52. Bookmarks: 0 Managed Asset Allocation - Keeping Investment Management Simple As portfolio Working Capital grows, so does the income that it generates. As a result, there will always be some uninvested cash looking for a home. This is a good thing and should not be tinkered with by applying artificial or automatic reinvestment mechanisms. Every dollar deserves to be allocated separately to the appropriate bucket, and there are times when investment opportunities in the Equity market are few and far between.
53. Bookmarks: 0 Managed Asset Allocation - A Portfolio Mission Statement The Asset Allocation formula is often abused in an effort to superimpose a valid investment planning tool on speculation strategies that have no real merits of their own. For example, annual portfolio repositioning, market timing adjustments, and shifting between Mutual Funds. To be effective, Asset Allocation must be implemented as an on-going process that is to be tended to with every investment decision.
54. Bookmarks: 0 Predicting Stock Market Movements Wall Street institutions already spend billions predicting future price movements of the stock market, individual issues & indices, commodities, and hemlines. Really? Is that right also? Economists have been analyzing and charting world economies for decades, showing clearly the repetitive cyclical changes and their upward bias.
55. 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 ---
56. Bookmarks: 1 The Total Return Shell Game Just what is this total return thing that income portfolio managers like to talk about, and that Wall Street uses as the performance hoop that all Investment Managers have to jump through? Why is it mostly just smoke and mirrors? Here's the formula:
57. 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.
58. Bookmarks: 0 Income CEF Price Volatility ROCKS! MCIM portfolios include 30% Income Purpose securities (based on Working Capital), and never own non Investment Grade Value Stock equities. This translates into portfolios of high quality securities, each contributing to higher realized base income than that contained in market averages or blended Mutual Funds.
59. Bookmarks: 0 WALL STREET'S EVEN DARKER SECRET: 8.63% TAX DEFERRED INCOME SPECIAL REPORT: As of Close of Business May 8th, no less than 57 multi-year experienced, Taxable Income, Closed End Funds (CEFs) were paying 7% or more in 401k and IRA eligible income to their shareholders.
60. Bookmarks: 0 WALL STREET'S DARKEST SECRET: 6.3% TAX FREE INCOME Special Report: As of Close of Business May 8th, no less than 53 multi-year experienced, Tax Free Income, Closed End Funds (CEFs) were paying 6% or more in federally tax free income to their shareholders. Why hasn't your financial advisor told you about this?
61. 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),
62. 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.
63. 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.
64. Bookmarks: 0 Modern Portfolio Theory --- The Root Of All Evil Clearly, the MPT creators were once Mutual Fund investors, looking for something better after years of disappointing investment returns. True, mutual fund managers rarely beat the markets --- but why? And also true, private, individual, portfolio managers rarely fail to beat the market averages over significant time periods.
65. 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.
66. 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.
67. 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?
68. 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
69. 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.
70. Bookmarks: 1 The Investor's Creed --- What's That? The Stock Market is a dynamic place where investors can consistently make reasonable returns on their capital if they comply with the basic principles of the endeavor AND if they don't measure their progress too frequently with irrelevant measuring devices. Five simple concepts of Asset Allocation, Investment Strategy, and human Psychology are summed up quite nicely in The Investor's Creed.
71. 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.
72. 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.
73. 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.
74. 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.
75. 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.
76. 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.
77. 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.
78. 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 ---
79. 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.
80. 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.
81. Bookmarks: 1 Play Kiawah's World Famous Ocean Course For Free and For Two Kiawah Island's renowned Ocean Course is rated one of the best tracks in the world that YOU can play. Up to four times per year (depending upon entries) one lucky winner will be invited to play the Ocean Course absolutely free, with a friend --- including caddie and beverage cart (within reason).
82. 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?
83. 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.
84. 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.
85. Bookmarks: 0 Ten Common Investment Errors: Stocks, Bonds, & Management Losing money on an investment may not be the result of a mistake, and not all mistakes result in monetary losses. Compounding the problems that investors have managing their investment portfolios is the sideshowesque sensationalism that the media brings to the process. Avoid these ten common errors to improve your performance:
86. 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.
87. 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.
88. 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!
89. 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
90.
