Recommendations?: Dividend Funds/Swiss Funds.

For my variable portfolio I am thinking of making new investments into a dividend fund and a Swiss fund (fund that invests in Swiss companies).

Just checking to see if anyone has any recommendations.

Thanks!

Re: Question: Rebalancing - Dick and Jane Version.

Thank you all.

This is exactly the information I was looking for.

Hopefully, having all this rebalancing info in one thread will help other too.

Re: Biden/Harris Discussion

...There was nothing to suggest he'd be qualified to do the job and his performance has just proven his how unqualified he was... Because anyone could design, build, pay taxes on, and manage a 98 story building in downtown Chicago? https://res.cloudinary.com/dtoevk0jc/image/upload/v1597524956/trump...

Re: Biden/Harris Discussion

...Biden and Harris can read with emotion... For sure while this a skill needed to get elected president, I am not sure it is very useful for carrying out the duties of being president. For carrying out the duties of the office, I tend to look to see what the person has built/delivered, either by t...

Re: Trying to make sense of PRPFX performance

Does PRPFX still hold a lot of real estate? That got hit pretty hard. Looks like PRPFX has a target of 15% for Real Estate/Natural Resources. As of 12/31/2019 looks like they were over allocated a bit. From the PRPFX website: https://res.cloudinary.com/dtoevk0jc/image/upload/v1585530333/PermPortPng...

Re: Coronavirus General Discussion

A couple days of these prison-style workouts... I have to say I underestimated how much I could do from home. It's not as good as the gym, but it should be enough to tide me over for now and stave off muscular atrophy. My last day at the gym was Thursday, 12-Mar, my first day of 'social distancing'...

Check Endorsement - For Deposit Only.

My wife received a check payable to her. I endorsed the back 'For Deposit Only' and then our account number for our joint checking account. The teller refused to deposit it, because my wife didn't sign it. OK, I realize my Business Law class was a long time ago, and I am sure that in class we learne...

Re: Is Trump doing a good job?

Looking for common ground...

We haven't entered any wars since the president took office.

Troop deployment in hot spots overseas seem to be reduced at least somewhat. Threats to the US seem to be lessened, again at least to some degree.

Re: Obtain List of My Savings Bonds (EE/I) Outstanding?

Thank you barrett and jhogue. Yep, I was wondering thtat if the gov't could handle a case of a stolen/lost/destroyed bonds, then they might be able to provide a list. It's reasonable to me though that the gov't isn't in a position to provide a list of any/all bonds outstanding for an individual, tha...
