<t>So I turned vegan about 1.5 months ago. It was for yoga and health reasons. So far it's pretty cool but you need to watch that you get enough nutrition throughout the day. There are fade points so you have to keep snacking. <br/> I would honestly have to say that my food budget is eerily similar-...

<t>I've only been actively investing for almost 3 years...But so far so good. I'll give myself like 9-10% in a dryer market and expect 12% or so in a bull market. Dividends plus trying to buy smart/undervalued for some capital appreciation. AFL at 33, WAG at 31, MCD in the 80s...When I started, PM i...

Maus, the rebalancing idea is interesting to me from a curiosity standpoint.
Would you mind revealing your average annualized returns for the last couple of years? Was it 6%?

6-10% annualized is great.
For all my gloating and prancing around, my portfolio total returns for the past couple years have basically been about 10.7% annualized....Not bad, but not insanely amazing. I'm happy.

You are lucky! The young ones who know about ERE, you can be very wealthy when you are older if you save now and be diligent about it.

<t>Guys and gals, what do you think of KFT and all of the upcoming hubbub? What an interesting and somewhat confusing jumble of occurrences!<br/> I think I understand it, 3 shares KFT = 1 share KRFT and 3 shares of MDLZ. Dividend for KRFT will be 2 bucks a share, dividend for MDLZ as of yet undeterm...

<t>My personal feeling on the matter is to sort of combine waiting and buying. I nibble every once and a while, but try to have a little cash on hand. Then, when a wonderful opportunity comes along, I can get in on it, like Walgreens recently at 30 a share.<br/> Generally speaking I will abstain fro...
