1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
4. 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.
5. 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.
6. 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.
7. 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.
8. 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.
9. 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.
10. 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.
11. 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.
12. 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.
13. 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.
14. 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.
15. 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.
16. Bookmarks: 0 Sanco Services' Investment Management Fee Schedule Sanco Services' Fee Schedule (below) includes Investment Management Fees Only. Clients may have some options with respect to how commissions are handled--- either by transaction or (if eligible) through a flat annual fee. Fees are deducted directly from the investment account.
17. Bookmarks: 0 The Working Capital Line Dance This is a graphical example of The Working Capital Line Dance.
18. 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.
19. 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!
20. 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.
21. 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.
22. 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.
23. 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.
24. 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.
25. 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.
26. 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:
27. 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.
28. 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.
29. Bookmarks: 2 Working Capital Model ~ Market Cycle Investment Management Performance In the longer term scheme of things, a well defined, well organized, and quality based investment model will just naturally out-perform those that are not similarly constructed --- it's getting to that level of management expertise that is the issue.
30. 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.
31. 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.
32. 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.
33. 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.

48. Bookmarks: 0 Factoring Can Be An Ideal Solution For Start-Up And/Or Growing Businesses Factoring is one of the oldest methods of business financing in existence.

56. Bookmarks: 0 Investment Performance and The Working Capital Model (March, 2008) The Working Capital Model (WCM) approach to portfolio performance evaluation eliminates the tears and fears because it is based on more than the current market value illusion of wealth--- a number that won't sit still long enough to ever be meaningful. Market value, within the WCM, is used only to determine what to buy and/or when to take profits.
