Re: What do you think about Dan Wiener

The thing that chafes 50-grit abrades me about this guy is the general theme of his argument, which as I see it is: 1. If you're a regular person, not mega rich, just an average Joe, then you're getting screwed, and deep dark secrets are being kept from you. 2. I know who is doing the screwing, and...

One quote from link: "The newsletter has grown from eight pages to 16, and subscribers now total 40,000." Think what ~40,000 times an annual newsletter subscription price brings to the current owner(s). Don’t forget the printing and mailing costs have gone up besides having to double the number of ...

I'm not trying to say anything but that graph was supposed to be this with green arrows. Also, understand your point on volatility percentage but, if and only IF( that is BIG IF), his chart is correct. He is at 600K( red line) at the bottom for 2008-2009 and "average VG investor" at 300K(blue line)...

Re: Vanguard promoting their Actively managed funds

Jack Bogle on his own involvement with setting up the PRIMECAP Fund: http://johncbogle.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/PRIMECAP-30th-Anniversary.pdf. Some things never seem to change. My perception is that the above link with Jack Bogle serving as a "cheerleader" for Primecap and Capital O...

Re: Wife has accumulated $90K in debt - Advice sought...

Hello everyone. Been a lurker on this site for a long time, and really have no one to turn to who has the same mindset as I do nor whom I trust. Long story short, over the course of about 9 years, my wife has accumulated a significant amount of debt, and has cost me even more money trying to help h...

Re: HEDGEFUNDIE's excellent adventure [risk parity strategy using 3x leveraged ETFs]

I am trying to unravel this modeling issue. What is clear so far is that the 3x tracking for UPRO/SSO/S&P 500 is based on the *price* index, not on the Total Return index.

Re: Unconventional investment choices

Monday morning I will be moving my entire Vanguard account ($100k) into a risk parity strategy using 3x leveraged ETFs (at M1 Finance, since Vanguard thinks they know what’s good for me). How’s that for unconventional? Personally, I think you have outperformed in the unconventional arena. :) I real...

Does the below information align with general belief about the risk of these investments? I apologize for the alignment problems.
