LOOK AT BPR

December 31, 2018. Wow the dividend payments are really rolling in. This is what the dividend game is all about: the holdings are dropping in price but the divvies keep arriving. _____ We are probably entering a bottoming process. But are we out of the woods yet? Of course not. History tells us that this […]

IS THERE HOPE!!!

December 28, 2018. Are the markets starting to stabilize???? We don’t know what the future holds, but we do know that virtually any position in the Core Portfolio is a buy. Everything is on sale.  If you can handle the risk, now is the time to pick up holdings when they are cheap………. yesterday we bought […]

UP. DOWN. UP. DOWN.

December 27, 2018. If you are a trader and had been watching the stock market yesterday minute by minute, you could have made a lot of money. Just buy early in the morning, follow the trend, and sell at the end of the day. Alas, we are not stock traders and were busy doing other […]

updates…..WILL THEY OR WON’T THEY

December 24, 2018. Well……………here is a positive spin on the markets!!!! https://seekingalpha.com/instablog/16392-rida-morwa/5251104-join-leading-dividend-investment-group-celebrate-new-year-high-income?app=1&isDirectRoadblock=false December 21, 2018. We may be reaching the capitulation levels that we talked about a few days ago. The markets are really looking terrible.  When all the sellers flush out, we may see a turnaround.

MORE DOWNSIDE. PLEASE, MAKE IT STOP!!!

December 17, 2018.  Everyone (or at least those interested in the financial markets) are watching to see what the Fed says in their upcoming meeting this week.  We have to think they will try and present a ‘very favorable’ spin….but still hike rates.  No Fed Chair wants to be responsible for a recession!!! The other […]

THIS IS GETTING SERIOUS

December 14, 2018.  In the investing game, all you have to do is watch XLF.  That’s right folks.  It is very simple.  The markets follow the banks….XLF.  And guess what.  The banks have been in a downward trend since March!!. (about 14%) AND they are still declining.  If you have been holding XLF you are […]

LOOK AT THIS FINANCIAL WEBSITE

December 13, 2018.  Several years back, we were following Tim McPartland in a financial website called The Yield Hunter.  He offered, for free, portfolios that included income generating positions such as baby bonds and term preferreds:  the kind of stuff we like. Well, his website was sold off and it appears Tim was writing for […]
