Proposal To Change This Section To "Other Lazy Portfolios"

Post by Reub » Sun Aug 03, 2014 3:03 pm

Being that this section is lacking in posts and interest, I propose changing this section to highlight the myriad of other lazy portfolios. There are a lot of them out there and their discussion may draw more interest than simply discussing PRPFX and PERM ad nauseum. What do you think?

That seems like a great idea to me.

Yeah, that's a great idea.

+1.

It does make sense. Both PRPFX and classic PP are mentioned on various sites dedicated to lazy portfolios. Having them compared to other portfolios helps to better understand the pros and cons of PP.

Not being a financial expert,  I would certainly enjoy learning about other lazy portfolio ideas.  They could be contrasted with PRPFX and might actually augment the PP strategy.

I also think that examining some of the many interesting lazy strategies could be a draw for new readers as they might come upon this site when googling these other portfolios.

Does it seem that these forums have been running on autopilot recently without real direction or leadership? I've noticed how many of the great posters are gone.

A new (or renamed) forum that includes Lazy Portfolios in the title sounds like a fine idea to me as well.  I'll try to see if Craig or MediumTex can set this up.

I don't know how others feel, but I think we have pretty much exhausted the discussion on the PP.  I have used it for many years and plan to continue (along with a VP). 

I don't seem to get much out of discussions on tinkering with the PP or the discussions that just seem to reflect each individual's biases with regard to the portfolio's components or their views of future market developments.  I don't mean to denigrate the discussions, I just don't have anything of substance to add.
