OUCH!!!

September 26, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Hit the “Follow” button to get updates.  Update Wednesday:  The Momentum is STILL down.  This is painful.  But you should be able to pick up some bargains in the next few weeks. Update Monday:  This pullback is not over but we ARE getting close. If […]

Guggenheim BulletShares 2022 High Yield Corporate Bond ETF. BUY. BSJM

September 25, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Hit the “Follow” button to get updates.  This fund essentially buys corporate bonds and holds to maturity.  It is NOT the typical bond mutual fund or etf wherein the pricing changes daily—I do NOT recommend buying bond funds. I DO like the target maturity bond […]

SEEING YELLOW. STB. BUY

September 22, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Hit the “Follow” button to get updates.  Today I am looking at a Company that you have probably never heard of.  But I will bet a dollar that you have seen their yellow bus fleet transporting students around the neighborhood.  In fact they practically run […]

UPWARD AND ONWARD

September 17, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Hit the “Follow” button to get updates. Readers of this blog are happy with the Fed’s announcement today.  They said what everyone wanted to hear and so I anticipate continued money flow into the dividend paying positions that we hold….. resulting in higher prices. The markets […]

ICAHN CORPORATE BONDS BUY

September 11, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Hit the “Follow” button to get updates.  A few days ago I mentioned a corporate bond that you may want to buy.  Well I am back again with another suggestion. I really really like INDIVIDUAL corporate bonds—not corporate bond funds.  They are a relatively safe […]

BUY SAFEWAY CORPORATE BONDS

(Update:  Safeway is a HOLD.  Do not buy.) September 10, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Safeway, yeah the food store chain, is offering a corporate bond that is giving you just under 7%.  Keep in mind that each bond will cost you $1000. I love corporate bonds and they have treated me […]

CRAMER GIVES FREE ACCESS TO HIS SITE. LIMITED TIME (Update: No Longer Avail)

September 6, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  Jim Cramer is giving free access to his site for a limited time.  I suggest you get in and review his Dividend Stock Advisor Portfolio.  His returns look excellent and I will have to investigate further.  No idea what they charge. Go To: http://www.thestreet.com and […]

BUY MEMP RIGHT NOW!!! DETAILS TO FOLLOW. TAXABLE ACCOUNT ONLY.

RIP Joan Rivers.  The funniest lady on the planet. (Update Setp 8:  Momentum is down and you should be able to buy MEMP at very good prices.  I am loading up on energy MLPs, as they should be very good investments going forward.)  September 4, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  BUY MEMP […]

MOVE TO CASH? U MUST BE KIDDING.

September 3, 2014  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  I have been in this game for many, many years and read numerous articles and posts by financial advisors.  I am appalled at what I am seeing.  A lot of them are suggesting that clients have 40% of their portfolio in cash.  Cash???  Why?? OMG.  […]

SELL VNR RIGHT NOW

September 2, 2014.  Go to “Core Portfolio” for current holdings.  We have had a good run with VNR.  Nice dividends and good appreciation.  But this thing is tanking and you need to get rid of it. I should have sold many weeks back but we still have nice profits:  we have collected very nice dividends […]
