    I love the smell of the paper. I used to get Barron's delivered until they took away some of their charts and tables.

    Reading on an iPad just isn't the same...when I find a good stock or fund, I like to hear the sound of my red felt tip pen on the paper!

    Feel free to share.

    Just made a little on LPG.

    I'm in mostly cash and UTWO...a 2 year treasury ETF I just found out about. It pays a monthly dividend.

    I've done pretty well in oil and nat gas stocks. Devon Energy was down 13+% yesterday or day before...I had sold a bunch before that drop, and probly will buy more.

    PXD - Pioneer Natural Resources pays close to a 10% yield, but it can be volatile with oil prices.

    I think the market is headed lower as long as interest rates keep going up and the yield curve is inverted predicting a recession.

    Of course, the market could rally is the GOP takes Congress - which I think has fueled the last week or so's rally.

    Sorry for being off topic...

    Im a long term investor. Still young enough the money wont be needed for some time.

    Wish I had put everything in an Energy ETF back in Jan. Could have made around 50% on that money.

    If I was closer to retirement would be really nervous about things but Im looking at where are we in 2035-2040.

    Best scenario for me personally is things get cheaper the next few years followed by another boom we saw from 2010 till just recently. Cant tell when the next leg up will come but I want to have as much skin in the game when it inevitably does.

    Made a bunch with WMB as well. Anything energy has been solid gold this year.

    Ha ha! Some are good, some not so much...you just hope the good ones outnumber the bad ones.

    Thanks for the LPG tip. I've stayed out of transportation stocks because of a slowdown, but LPG has been an outperformer.

    Is Barron's worth it? I have WSJ and have strongly been considering getting Barron's for the longer analysis. Just not sure if it's "good" or not

  • LoranwhaddayagotLoranwhaddayagot Posts: 1,626 ✭✭✭✭✭ Graduate

    What I really liked were the stock charts that I could photocopy and markup...they took those away several years ago and I started trying to print out from various sites.

    I liked Barron's because I don't have time to read the WSJ every day.

    I've been meaning to give Investors Business Daily another try...first time subscribers can usually get a very good deal!

    The FT is my favorite. Plus if you get the paper version it is like this weird orangish pink. The color by itself let’s everyone around know how smart you are.
