  1. You have quite a few stock. I believe you would be better off with the Boglehead approach. Purchase a S&P index, commission free, and forget about it.

    Never have to worry about capital gains, the companies are selected for you. And you always match the market.

    • NNL,
      We use a Boglehead approach when it comes to my wife’s portfolio as we want to keep it simple, but for my portfolio I prefer investing in individual companies and building positions over time and fine tuning depending on how things progress. As time goes by, some industries and companies do better than other – so, I’d rather have control over it. Besides, to full leverage the power of dividend growth, one needs to pick and invest individual companies.

      Thanks for stopping by and the input anyway. I value the input.

  2. R2R, nice list. I like your stocks from your portfolio update. I am looking for something like that to put on my blog, but automate it as I am lazy to look for it and adding it on my blog manually.

    • Hey Martin,
      I pick my mentions manually…as there can be way too many articles related, esp when there are popular companies like AAPL, GE, T – which sees a lot of publication in the media.


  3. Thanks again for the mention. Performance grids are great visual information. I like to look for opportunities among the biggest losers. I’ve recently put 3% of the Arbor Asset Allocation Model Portfolio (AAAMP) in Russian stocks. Have a great weekend.

    • You are welcome, Ken. I agree that the grids are a great visual…I dont usually use the data directly to make investing decisions, but I like to keep an eye on it. Interesting that you’ve picked Russia – did you pick an ETF? RSX?
