[quote]Are there any other options to gain a good return?[/quote] In general, risk and return are related. If you cannot stomach a 30% loss of capital in any given year, the stock market is not a place for you. The problem is if you do not make equity investments, you will lose buying power to in...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Family travel/ vacation budget as % of income? - makersmark1 on 6/18/17 at 1:48 pm
Budgeting is fine, but as long as you spend less than you make, you'll be fine. Some vacations are once in a lifetime and will cost more. Others are less expensive, but enjoyable just the same....

re: Game time for Georgia Southern - makersmark1 on 6/18/17 at 5:38 am
Did we have a football team in 2012? I went to the games and stayed until 0:00. I drive 225 one way so leaving is not a consideration. I stayed and watched the carnage. I did give up season tickets that year so I guess they did make me quit. I just stub hub it now for a few games a year. I check...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

re: Starting 11 on offense. Right now - makersmark1 on 6/12/17 at 7:36 pm
Bell will compete all out to start. Maybe the 350 kid is the truth. Could Golson slide to guard? The JSU transfer is probably a tough kid who gets after it and is smart. The line play is always a key- on both sides....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
Greenville,SC: Nice 3 or 4 day weekend - makersmark1 on 6/11/17 at 6:38 pm
I took my family to see The Lion King at the Peace Center in Greenville. The show was fun. The venue is in the middle of the downtown river district. Everything is walking distance pretty much. We ate at Larkins which is fine dining. I had a nice filet. The next day we ate lunch at Grill Mar...

re: I'm looking into investing based on dividends... - makersmark1 on 6/10/17 at 5:54 am
I would recommend the book, Dividends Don't Lie by Janet Lowe. Be careful. High yield often means that a dividend cut is imminent. Look for dividend growth. Does this business has earnings to support and grow the current dividend? Is a question to consider. Also, does this company have a hist...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
