    Doing my homework

    And man is it a lot. So far using the new model of investing I'm able to return 22 plus percent in returns. Lots of work and keeps me at the computer 10 hours a day. Anyone got an easier way? LOL

    • A-date...I spend an average of about three hours a day on the P.C. checking my holdings and doing different types of research (checking other message boards for tips, looking over my watch list and a lot of other different stuff)....however, I do have 'a type of model' to invest by....

      I always try to hold about 'ten very high yielding stocks of about equal value'...I do not hold stocks that pay low dividends/distributions, why would I hold a stock that does not return anything to me (???)...and I always reinvest my yields (I know that some investors cannot) because 'compound returns always win'...

      At this time my average weighted yield is about 14% a year and I have average 'well over' 20% in Total Returns for the last ten years (about 23% in 2012 and about 28% in 2011)...I lost my $%# in 2008 but more than made it back in 2009 and 2010...I feel that if I am right on my picks about 70% of the time that I should make pretty good money...

      I always post my buys and sells on this message board so other investors can have a chance to agree or disagree with me...I like it when an other board member disagrees with me 'if they give a good reason' (sometimes it saves or makes me a lot of money)...high yield holdings give me 'more slack to play with' and future funds 'to go shopping for value with'...

      In my opinion. the so called Blue Chips stocks are just that, 'Very Blue Stocks' (I will list my current holdings later)...! $tagg...!

    • Could you share your stocks with the board?
