Time to Fine Tune Your Investment Portfolio / Portfolio / Learning to Invest

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my last couple of columns, I told you about two different portfolios that I’ve been running, both of which contain dividend stocks and have been performing very strongly.

That prompted some of you to write in asking what differentiates these two portfolios. It’s a great question and it raises the bigger issue of how you can tweak your own portfolio to better suit your goals and individual tolerance for risk.

This Simple Step Could Save Your Investment Portfolio / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust about every stockbroker, financial advisor or money manager worth their weight in salt knows that diversification is a major way to us to manage investment risk.

But here's what most -- professionals and retail investors alike fail to remember: Diversification doesn't just mean choosing to invest in different companies that do different things and that's it. Creating real diversity and ultimately protecting your investment portfolio involves a little more work, which amazingly, most professionals still get wrong.

A Value Investors View of Portfolio Risk vs. Diversification / Portfolio / Risk Analysis

By: Hans_Wagner

Diversification is the one of the ways to reduce risk, or so we learned. While a properly diversified portfolio might reduce your risk of loss, it also lowers the chance you have to achieve market-beating returns.

If you are a value investor, you find that your approach already reduces your risk of loss without having to resort to various diversification schemes.

Ramp Up Your Stocks Portfolio’s Growth with Dividend Reinvestment Plans / Portfolio / Dividends

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry D. Spears writes: With interest rates near all-time lows and equity markets in flux for much of the past decade, dividends have become an increasingly attractive feature for stock investors. But, while it's always nice to receive those quarterly checks, dividends do little to help you grow your wealth if all you do is spend the money as it comes in.

Investors Search for Income, Preferred Stocks Secret / Portfolio / Dividends

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne thing that is unlikely to change as we begin a new year and decade is the fact that savers continue to sit in the corner wearing the proverbial dunce cap. They’re an often unmentioned casualty in a world of bailouts, big government spending, and general financial irresponsibility.  In a normal, healthy economy, savers would be the focus of attention. In our deviant economy, however, where more people are employed by government than goods-producing industries, savers are disregarded. Harsh words? Absolutely. Certainly no one in charge has actually come out and said it, but as the old adage goes, actions speak much louder than words.

By: Richard_Shaw

Investment Portfolio Diversification & Risk / Portfolio / Learning to Invest

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe cliché’s are plentiful and well known. Putting all of one’s eggs in a single basket is probably the most popular example. One of the biggest manifestations is when an investor looks at their portfolio and realizes that it is grossly underperforming a particular market index or that the same portfolio has performed much worse than a given benchmark. Even if you’ve done everything right and selected the right themes, industries, and firms, if you get the portfolio mix wrong, you can still have problems. This is one of headaches that mutual funds are generally supposed to relieve investors of, but for a litany of reasons, it doesn’t seem to always work out that way. In truth, every individual portfolio is a mutual fund of sorts, and so the same rules apply.

By: Uncommon_Wisdom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTony Sagami writes: The Dow Jones Industrial Average suffered a 3.5 percent loss last week. One of the main culprits was a report from the Department of Commerce that retail sales dropped by 0.4 percent in April.

That was on the heels of a 1.3 percent drop in March. And back-to-back quarterly declines in the last half of 2008.
