Why would you bother investing in a portfolio that fails during the most in-opportune time?
Case in point, YTD stocks down 13%, LTT’s down 16%, Gold up 5% and Cash down whatever inflation is at the moment.
Case 2, today, stocks down 3.5%, LTT’s down 1.35% and Gold down/flat as well.
Seems like a loser to me and glad I sold out when I did.
Just think long and hard about your decision as I too was smitten by Craig and Medium Tex after reading their book.
Sounds great in principle, in practice it lets you down over and over.
By my calculations, that means the PP is down 6% YTD. If you were all stocks, you're down 13%. 60/40 would be down 11% or so. Explain to me how this portfolio has failed?
If you (or anyone else) signed up for the PP or something like it expecting that it would NEVER LOSE MONEY then you didn't fully understand what you were getting in to.
I understand I am talking to a wall.......
...and prey tell what did you give up the last 12 years in gains? I could fall 50% and still be ahead of the PP, maybe more. Also, why are you comparing to a 60/40? That’s not equivalent to a portfolio that has 25% in stocks. Take a little of your own medicine friend.
I'm comparing the 60/40 because it's a commonly held portfolio, moron. I wish you would leave like Mathjak did. Surprisingly, I think you have EVEN LESS to provide to this forum than he did, and that's a remarkably low bar to clear.
You’re an angry fella aren’t you and you display your ignorance for everyone to see by calling me names. Do you always harass others that don’t share your same opinions?
Now, to highlight your stupidity, I will explain why a 60/40 allocation is a bad comparison. If you know how to use the search functionality, you can query this board and see countless examples why 60/40 should not be used. I know firsthand you see because I used that very example and others pointed out it was a poor comparison since the PP only had 25% in stocks.
To prove your point that a 60/40 allocation has underperformed the PP YTD you chose to use the same allocation that others have chastised me for in the past.
You can’t have it both ways...use the comparison when stocks are down (PP winning) and conversely disallow the comparison (PP losing) when stocks are up.
I’ve read the books, listened to HB’s podcasts, love the idea of the PP, but it doesn’t live up to expectations. It’s like putting and coming up short of the hole every time.
There's much worse 'names' I could've used that would've been at least as accurate, if not more.
Speaking of website functionality, and also noting that Mathjak has posted again (while saying in his new post that he doesn't post on this forum), I will finally be figuring out how to block commenters. Listening to the constant whining and moaning from you and MJ is not worth my time.
I’ll meet you anywhere anytime and we can settle this like men you pussy. Your insight is about as valuable as a 2nd grader although that may be too harsh for the little kid. Probably taller and smarter than you’ll ever be.
