Re: Gyroscopic Portfolios Is Now Under Construction

Thanks for this effort, it's off to a great start. It'd be nice for this site to reprise Craig's tradition of an annual post on the PP's annual returns, with an explanation for why each of the four assets did what it did, and comparison to a couple benchmarks. Another useful resource would be a lis...

Re: Carnac The Magnificence's 2019 Predictions

I’m taking the most left field and out there prediction.

I say the PP returns 900% next year as the U.S. dollar collapses and gold skyrockets.

I will bet you a snickers bar.

Re: Worst investing year ever...

For what it's worth, Harry Browne in Best Laid Plans said that he hoped the reader would put no less than 20% and no more than 35% in each of the given asset classes.

Maybe that changed in the intervening time between that book and his radio show.

Not to try and plug too much, but feel free to visit my website's repository of Harry Browne's show! ^-^

Re: Worst investing year ever...

Merry Christmas - target allocation is 35/15/15/35. A little more prosperity and cash, a little less gold and LTT’s. I think I can follow this allocation without much regret. Merry Christmas. Thanks If I was a little younger I would go at least 40% prosperity as cash does not return full value a lo...

Re: Gyroscopic Portfolios Is Now Under Construction

I'm on the same page as you guys. Remember the original epic PP thread over at the Bogleheads forum? I've read the whole thing from start to finish -- multiple times. With perhaps the biggest exception being the brief scuffle between MediumTex and Larry Swedroe, everyone seemed so gung ho on the str...

Re: Gyroscopic Portfolios Is Now Under Construction

Nice-looking website, Smith! I agree but I'd like to see the returns in real (inflation-adjusted) terms. I suspect the "flattening" that we see over the last ten years or so is at least partly due to inflation being low during that entire period. Check out this page from Ryan Melvey's site: http://...

Re: Stock scream room

It’s funniest when people are arguing about the strategy and keep saying “PP” in the middle of a bunch of serious statements. ;D

Gyroscopic Portfolios Is Now Under Construction

Hello my fellow PPers! A number of months ago I posted about resurrecting Craig's old Crawling Road website. I hit a few life snags in the interim that took me out of commission for a while, so I didn't start on the project as soon as I had hoped. However, I have now started the project. I would lik...

Re: Purpose of the PP

I must say, after an absence from the forums for a while, I've quite enjoyed reading Budd's posts since coming back. Budd's negativity towards the PP always forces me to reconsider my thinking and my position. I believe in one of the posts he mentioned groupthink. Budd has forced me to be introspect...
