2. 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?

3. Bookmarks: 0 Golf and Investing --- Four Important Lessons Golfers will spend thousands on instruction, gadgets, machines, clinics, magazines, lessons, drivers, and putters.

5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.

12. Bookmarks: 0 Stock Market: Thirteen Months Down, And Now... Brexit Neither a stock market downturn (not even Brexit) nor higher interest rates will have a significant negative impact on my retirement income; they could, in fact, allow me to grow that income even faster!
13. Bookmarks: 0 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.
14. 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.

16. Bookmarks: 0 Income Closed End Funds & Total Return Analysis If interest rates rise, the market values of these investments will go down BUT the income from the securities (and their safety vis-a-vis equities) will not change; if interest rates fall forcing prices up, I may feel richer, BUT MY INCOME WILL NOT CHANGE.

20. 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.
21. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Scam Alert 2009: Spread the Word (August 2009) An envelope arrived yesterday from a worried investor (not a client of mine) in Appleton, Wisconsin.

22. 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.

In the WCM, market value is used as an expectation clarifier and an action indicator for the portfolio manager.
23. 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.

The IGVSI started a run of new ATHs in late 2010 and, thus far, has achieved 46 new ATHs just in 2013... impressive! The IGVSI tracks an elite sector of the stock market, Investment Grade Value Stocks. Some IGVSI companies are included in all averages, but no other measure follows only the very highest quality companies traded on the New York Stock Exchange. Only 348 companies meet IGVSI quality standards.

32. 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.
33. 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.

35. 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.
36. 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.
37. 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.
38. 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.

Diversification limits the size of individual and sector holdings. Both hedge against the risk of
39. 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.

40. Bookmarks: 0 A Stock Market Correction Is A Beautiful Thing A correction is a beautiful thing, simply the flip side of a rally, big or small.

43. Bookmarks: 0 To Rollover 401k Plan Assets or Not To... That Is The Question Interestingly, all the major 401k product providers, also manage Closed End Fund product lines that generate generous income, even after higher fees.

46. 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.
47. 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.

48. 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.

Unlike many things in life, Stock Market realities need to be dealt with quickly, decisively, and with zero hindsight.
49. 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.
50. 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.

Unlike many things in life, stock market realities need to be dealt with quickly, decisively, and with zero hindsight.
51. Bookmarks: 0 Barron's Touts Managed Closed End Funds Closed-end funds are in the bargain bin.

53. Bookmarks: 2 Making A Volatile Stock Market Your VBF (very best friend) Call it foresight, or hindsight if you want to be argumentative, but a long-term view of the investment process eliminates the guesswork and points pretty clearly toward a trading mentality that keys on the very natural volatility of the hundreds of investment grade value stocks out there for your portfolio building attention. Market Cycle Investment Management makes market volatility your Very Best Friend
54. Bookmarks: 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.
55. 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.

56. 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.
57. 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.

58. 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.
59. 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.
60. 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.
61. Bookmarks: 5 Solid Income Investments in Liquid Form: Managed Closed End Funds Unlike conventional mutual funds, CEFs do not issue and redeem shares directly with investors at net asset value. CEFs are listed on national securities exchanges, where shares of the Investment Company are purchased and sold in transactions with other investors, just like individual company stocks, and most often not at net asset value.
62. 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 is no need for rocket science in investing --- no correlations, standard deviations, coefficients, Alphas, or Betas are required.

66. Bookmarks: 10 The Ten-Workshop Road to Better Investment Performance --- Yeah, They're FREE! Most investors jump into their investment programs without a clear understanding of the process, the securities, or the risks involved in the effort. Few hold valid expectations, and most choose to ignore the cyclical nature of the investment marketplace. This poor preparation is an endemic problem of our society, made profitable by Wall Street, for Wall Street.
67. Bookmarks: 1 Testimonials From Mentoring Program and Workshop Graduates In “Brainwashing” Steve Selengut exposes the fallacies of conventional Wall Street wisdom and lays out a rational system to select, buy and then sell stocks of quality companies at a profit while developing a separate, growing income stream. By far the best investment book I have ever read---
68. 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.
69. Bookmarks: 1 The Investment Grade Value Stock Watch List --- On Demand A large number of high quality stocks on the Watch List is clear evidence of market weakness and a limited number of such opportunities signals a market that is overpriced and attractive only to Mutual Fund salesmen, the media, and the greedy.
