I would hesitate to say I'm "knowledgeable," but I think the reason you've gotten no response is there isn't any good answer. Don't chase yield from the FI side; it's a paradigm shift. The value of...

I assume the OP is talking about his tax-advantaged retirement account (401k, or the like) so he can buy/sell whatever he likes until he withdraws: then it will be taxed at regular income rates.

You're right, but the OP was very clear in his risk tolerance and horizon. It won't prevent the usual THT dick-measuring responses, cherry-picking data points, etc., but the OP should...

I would be unhappy.

Even if your IRA investments were in a 'set-it-and-forget-it' target date account, say like Vanguard's VTIVX Target Retirement 2045 fund, you would see a 6.69 return YTD and a...

I'm sure it will look like hell, but the same could be said for any passenger sedan up to, and including, Lexus, BMW, Acura and others.

And that is exactly my point: somewhere along the line,...

I know nothing about the history you're quoting, but the OP is singing the "mid-tier boat blues," and it's a frequently heard song. The chiding of the new KW owner aside, it really shouldn't be...

I may have to do the same as I'm replacing a broken B150M and will probably chose a larger xducer. What's the point of the plywood? Is it thick enough to act as a 'fence' to prevent the hole saw from...

What does the customer need to do to avoid "neglecting" the fuel tank? Is there some routine maintenance that's needed to keep it from failing?
