Re: The next generation of Boglehead authors

One day, and I guess sooner than later (see the growth of passive funds/ETFs), this forum's ideas will become mainstream, and when that happens this concern will become irrelevant.

Explain TIPS funds

Please help me understand how TIPS funds let us say iShares TIPS ETF (TIP), make distributions? In a regular individual TIPS bond, one gets the real interest semi annually, and the bond principal growths as a function of inflation. Does TIP distribute as dividends not only the real interest but also...

Help on retirement funding

In a previous posting, and my first one since joining this forum, I posed questions on asset allocation for inheritance, and I stated that I felt that about $5m would be available. I got many wise comments, thank you all. Now, I want to ask a question about retirement funding and hopefully get your ...

Re: Larry Swedroe says "Goodby."

Although I am very new as a member, I have read the forum and Mr Swedroe's contributions for many years. Thus I am qualified to say that he has been such an incredible asset to the forum and that it is very upsetting that he is leaving. One point that I wish to make is his reason, or one of the reas...

Intermediate versus Short Term Bond Funds

I know that this subject has been discussed more than once; however, forgive me for asking again. Here is the question: In an environment of rising rates, why would short term bond funds not be the right answer?

Re: Knee Problem - Emergency or NOT?

I have had pain off an on for several years in my right knee. It would show up for no apparent reason out of the blue, ache like crazy, I'd take some OTC pain medication for a couple of days, and it would vanish for several more months. Finally got it checked out back in 2015. X-ray showed nothing....

Knee Problem - Emergency or NOT?

I need some help making a medical decision. A few years ago I hurt my right knee skiing. The MRI showed "potential meniscus tear". The doctor said to wait (no surgery), specially because I did not have pain and was functioning normal. A month ago I fell skiing and felt the knee again. It w...

Re: How to invest my children's inheritance

Thank you for your comments. I was afraid of the answers, life is never that simple. Allow me to be specific, I will not need the money and it is a bit over $5m (in cash, after tax, recently received from the sale of a business) to be shared among 4 children. Why I am that sure? Excluding the above,...

First, thank you for accepting me to the forum. I have been investigating passively for many years and now, as a retiree, I am enjoying the fruits of the strategy.
