Thanks Travis always for your indepth sharing, and analysis of all things for us.
Travis is there anywhere on the site to go to see the various threads being discussed? I see the current ones on the right side, and try the search box too sometimes, but I am just not very successful in finding stuff for some reason. Thanks for all your help and I am so happy that I found your site, it has helped me so very much and I certainly love the community!

Hi, according to Morningstar, minimum investment into DSEEX is $100k – is that right?

A viewpoint from a 71 yr. old retiree. My current portfolio is 28% cash, 8% physical precious metals, 9% precious metal stocks (OKSKF, OCANF, GGN (13.4 % dividend), SPPP, and SLW. I plan to allocate an additional 8-10% to precious metal stocks at $1175-$1200 gold, comprised of SGDJ, RGLD, MORE SLW, MORE GGN, and MORE OKSKF. The next 45% is allocated among 12% natural resources (FCX, ETP, SUN, FGP, CQP) and 33% closed-end funds (CHY, NCV, HPI, JPS, NRZ, APTS, EXG, PCEF). This portion generates an average return of 8.9% in dividends which I reinvest. The remaining 10% is invested in inverse funds, (PSQ, VXX, SDS) for insurance against a major market drop. Over the entire portfolio I get 5.4% return in dividends per year, and that is steadily growing as my dividends are reinvested. Regardless of what the markets do I sleep well at night, and will maintain these allocations until November 8. GO TRUMP!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Sounds like a good plan. However, I would change the last two words to: Trump must GO….Away!

As a new investor I have a lot to learn. I’m in the process of disengaging with my “financial Advisor” and attempting to go it alone. I find myself overly attracted to hyped up ideas from Motley Fool and “Oxford Income letter”. I always check Travis’ take on the teasers but I also need some advice on basic investing books for beginners. Can anyone help? I don’t have a huge amount of time as I just turned 71 and am semi-retired. I am a piano teacher with a little inherited money to invest and I need to move as quickly as possible. Thank you in advance.

Kevin

Even if you have only five years, you should read Benjamin Graham’s “The Intelligent Investor”.

I remember STM being the largest chip maker ( by number of chips ) in the world and trading at $8 – 10 years ago. Weren’t they the ones teased to have the chip that could predict a heart attack before it happened, etc.? You have to believe that if it’s making money, and has made money this long, that it would hopefully have a trick up at sleeve that would catapult that one of these days? Maybe a long Leap? I’ve been in and out of it a few times in the last 10 years so I guess one more time won’t kill me LOL. Thanks Travis. By the way, I’m down at exit 7 and if you ever want to come by and grab a nice Portuguese lunch, I’d love to buy and pick your brain at the same time ! Have a great weekend thank you!

And oh yes, one more thing. I’m not sure how many years ago it was that you suggested SAND as a good play. There’s no question in my mind that it’s the absolute best gold play out there. I have bought In every dip including two dollars and change in the last 8-9 months.. IMO, it is comfortably the best go play for any goldbug out there. I wholeheartedly trust the brain behind Silver Wheaton to deliver again!
