Article Title/Link and Description
1. Bookmarks: 11 Risk Management: Income, 401k, and IRA Programs Sooner or later, every investment program (particularly your IRA and 401k) becomes a Retirement Income Program. If Retirement Income Readiness is one of the initial investment plan objectives, income purpose securities will have a place in the portfolio from the very beginning.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. Bookmarks: 0 Who is Steve Selengut? Investment portfolio manager. BA Business, Gettysburg College, MBA, Professional Management, Pace University, Paul Harris Fellow, Phi Gamma Delta, AAII member & speaker, Steve Selengut has been a private investment portfolio manager since 1979 and is the CEO of Sanco Services Inc.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. Bookmarks: 0 The Working Capital Model - Market Cycle Investment Management - Mentoring Program Professional Investor/Manager Steve Selengut walks you through the Market Cycle Investment Management (MCIM) portfolio management process. He'll hold your hand, answer your questions, and do everything short of security selection as you learn how to run your portfolio.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. Bookmarks: 1 Ten Time-Tested Investment Portfolio Risk Minimizers Most investment mistakes are caused by basic misunderstandings of the securities markets and by invalid performance expectations. Losing money on an investment may not be the result of an investment sandbar and not all mistakes in judgment result in broken propellers.
13. 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.
14. 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.
15. 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.
16. 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.
17. 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.
18. 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.
19. Bookmarks: 7 The Working Capital Model - Part 3 I know of no other Investment Manager anywhere (other than those who have contacted me and obtained my consent), private or public, that uses the Working Capital Model to direct individual investor portfolios... certainly none of the major operators, who are dependent for their survival upon the whim of large others.
20. Bookmarks: 5 The Working Capital Model - Part 2 Cost Basis is the total amount paid for a security, any security, in the portfolio. The cost basis of a dollar of cash is $1. Cost Basis includes commissions and exchange fees, and will be reduced on occasion when returns of capital are distributed. Cost Basis is the very foundation of The Working Capital Model.

22. 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.
23. 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.
24. 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.
25. 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.
26. 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.

28. Bookmarks: 0 IGVSI Out Performs DJIA & S & P 500 in Best Stock Market October Ever The IGVSI is a barometer of a small buy elite sector of the stock market called Investment Grade Value Stocks. None of the popular averages or indices track investment grade companies exclusively and few market tracking websites offer expert comentary that can help you develop reasonable performance expectations for properly diversified portfolios
29. 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.

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.
31. 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.
32. 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?
33. 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.
34. 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
35. Bookmarks: 0 Trading The 401k Portfolio - Part II Retirement plan investment portfolios are managed to produce the promised income; 401k plans make no promises and do not seem to make much of an effort to offer income focused investment products. The income produced by the highest yielding (highest risk) mutual funds is generally lower than that which can be obtained from lower income tier Closed End Funds (CEFs).
36. 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...
37. Bookmarks: 0 Strategic Investment Mixology - The Elusive Holy Grail Cocktail Investment portfolio mixology doesn't take place in the smiley faced environment that brought us the Cosmo and the Kamikaze, but putting an investment cocktail together without the risk of addictive speculations, or bad aftertastes, is a valuable talent worth finding or developing for yourself.
38. 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.
39. Bookmarks: 2 Investment Management - Part 2 Regardless of how well you design your portfolio and create a decision making model that is easy to implement, you must also be able to unemotionally stick to your guns in the face of massive media attacks that just could make you change direction for any number of reasons.

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.
41. 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.
42. 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.
43. 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.
44. 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
45. 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.
46. 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?
47. Bookmarks: 0 One Man's Bond Crash is Another's Income Opportunity But we (the non Masters of the Universe) can simply reinvest our current income in any number of portfolios of bonds, preferred stocks, loans, notes, etc. which are selling at discounts, not only from their maturity value, but also from their combined Net Asset Values.
48. 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:
49. 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.
50. 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.
51. 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.
52. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Grade Value Stocks At Ten Year Lows (circa October 2008) A cocktail of credit market laxatives is working its way into a constipated world economy. Relief is on the way. Today's prices may well be looked at as the lowest of the next ten years! Here's a list of things to think about or to do while Investment Grade Value Stock prices are at ten-year lows:
53. 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.
54. Bookmarks: 0 Learning To Dig The BIG Buy Low Market corrections can be good for the wallet; they part of the normal shock market menu, and can be brought about by either bad news or good news. If you don’t love corrections (and deal with them like visiting relatives) you really don’t understand the financial markets. Don’t be insulted, it seems as though very few investors see it this way.
55. 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.
56. Bookmarks: 0 Dealing With Stock Market Corrections: Ten Do's and Don'ts 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. So if you over think the environment or over cook the research, you'll miss the party. Unlike many things in life, Stock Market realities need to be dealt with quickly, decisively, and with zero hindsight.
57. 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.
58. 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.
59. Bookmarks: 0 The MCIM Trading Strategy For Volatile Markets 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.
60. 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.
61. Bookmarks: 0 Trading The 401k Portfolio - Part I Most 401k investment menus encourage speculation by providing varieties of capitalization, sector, commodity, and growth varietals with little emphasis on internal selection quality, diversification, or income generation.
62. 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.
63. Bookmarks: 0 Collective Investment Funds (CIFs) for Your Retirement Plans: Plan Sponsors, Principals, Advisors, Fiduciaries We all know that Mutual Funds, ETFs, and similar products don't prepare well for market downturns.... they are unable to take profits, build portfolio income, or hold equity smart cash that can be put back to work when the market falls. Collective Investment Trusts could be a solution to these problems... Active management and security transparency are the key differences.
64. 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.
65. 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.
66. 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
67. 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.
68. 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.
69. 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.
70. 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.
71. 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.
72. 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.
73. 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 ---
74. 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.
75. 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.
76. 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?

80. 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:
81. 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.
82. 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.

83. Bookmarks: 0 Modern Investment Thinking: We've Come Full Circle From the unmanaged Buy and Hold strategy of generations past, it's interesting to observe the full circle we've traveled to the unmanaged multi-product portfolio of the 21st century. Somewhere in the process, both technical and fundamental analytical techniques have been steamrolled under the pavement of the new highway to ---
84. 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.

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.

89. Bookmarks: 0 Predicting Stock Market Movements The risk of loss cannot be eliminated. A simple change in a security's market value is not a loss of principal just as certainly as a change in the market value of your home is not evidence of termite damage. Markets are complicated; emotions about one's assets are even more so. Wall Street spins reality in whatever manner it can to make most investors unhappy, thus increasing new product sales.
