Is it better to not be in the market when it goes up or to be out of it when it goes down? Of courseRead More the ideal would be to get full in before it rises and to get all out before it falls. But, that can only be done with knowledge that nobody has.

The stock market is at its highest ever (nominally) due to money printing. Right now the Fed isRead More printing more money every month than EXISTED in 1980. The safe money is already OUT of stocks and the liquidity crisis you are warning people about is on its way. :) It will likely coincide with the second peaking of US oil production. :)

Hi Edith. I am certainly not a health care industry expert. From everything that I read each day,Read More it certainly seems like the Obamacare rollout was not well thought out and planned. The web site problems could have been easily avoided according to technical experts.

Ric, Another way to look at it is this. If you had just paid off your mortgage, would it make senseRead More to borrow that same amount of money, with your house as the collateral, to invest. Does the potential gain counter-balance the risk?
Ric Lager November 18, 2013 at 02:50 pm
Many variables to consider with that question, EvaMarie. It would depend on the interest rates ofRead More your home equity loan. Next, is the stock market going up as much or more as the interest rate on your home equity loan?

Melissa, Thanks very much for adding your perspective and your experience with your daughter to myRead More blog post. I do have a question that I hope to learn from. Do you think that your daughter's work experience helped her mature more than her peers, or is she a mature young woman on her own?
Melissa Silkey October 25, 2013 at 07:53 pm
Her job is in the retail industry so a large part of it is dealing with the public and learning howRead More to handle difficult situations that arise with a certain level of grace. That in itself is beneficial plus learning to juggle a job with sports, homework, etc was also a plus. So to answer your question, I do think it has something to do with her maturity level.
Ric Lager October 25, 2013 at 08:27 pm
Thanks for the explanation, Melissa. Makes perfect sense now. Good luck to your daughter.

It's the GOPs fault. President Obama is a real leader.
Donald Lee October 15, 2013 at 12:27 pm
I have to ask. Is that sarcasm or a serious comment?
Mike Carlier October 15, 2013 at 01:17 pm
It is the GOP's fault. If they had nominated a real candidate instead of out-of-touch Romney, theyRead More would have won the election. Obama would now be mayor of Chicago:)

No shots taken? Seriously? The Golden Valley Patch staff have nothing to do with this disagreement.Read More I called you out for what you are. You started this fight; and now you can't finish it. Take your bat and ball and go home.

I feel compelled to respond. I held off yesterday, but seeing this investmentRead More "professional" using terms such as picking a fight, and then further escalating his rhetoric today is totally outrageous. This guy needs some anger management. I am a retired individual who continues to stay with carefully selected mutual fund & bond investments, tweaking somewhat to add international funds in later years, in addition to "safer" money market accounts. This does not make me an investment professional by any means. I do read the business section of the St. Paul Pioneer Press every Sunday. Everyone should do what is most comfortable for their situation & risk tolerance. It's not "who's right" but rather "what's right." Your comments would not be worth the bother of asking any professional/ethical group which oversees investment advisors to look at this.

Great post Ric. Similar to the Real Estate market up until 2006, the stock market seems a bitRead More propped up as much by Government policy as sound financial data. Hope you follow up with an update in another quarter or two.
Ric Lager September 20, 2013 at 04:01 pm
Thanks for your post, David. I see the Fed making a big mistake now. The stock and bond marketsRead More were all set up for some level of taper. And the Fed failed to take advantage. I think this sets both stocks and bonds up for much bigger problems later on.
Mike Carlier September 23, 2013 at 10:00 am
It does seem a bit challenging to book a profit with a strategy to buy high and sell low. PerhapsRead More one could make it up in volume? :)
