When you go to your medical doctor, you probably feel compelled to tell your physician what is bothering you. Unfortunately, this may not be the case when it comes to your personal finances. Debt is usually the culprit. If it is not carefully managed, it can wreck your life.

Roots on BET
- Dec 27, 2012 - 10:42:32 PM
I have not watched Roots in years. I am very happy BET showed the miniseries, in this holiday season, developed from the writings of the late Alex Haley. These stories of freedom are a Christmas story that should not be forgotten, for they must continue to inspire our youth to never give up and provide them with the context for understanding why their education is not just for their personal benefit.
Beating the S& P 500 results
- Jul 1, 2012 - 3:20:08 PM
On May 14, 2012, I embarked on a 30 day investment journey, which ended on June 25, 2012. The purpose of this journey was to prove how difficult it is for investors to beat the S & P 500. To test this theory, I created a hypothetical portfolio of 7 U.S. stocks covering various sectors of the economy.

In our society, many of us are motivated by our salary level. So, as we move up the corporate ladder, we expect to earn a larger salary for our increased responsibilities.

The internet is a great tool for both research and
communication, but it can also be a place where you can become a victim. In the last decade, online dating has become
the new bar scene because the average worker is now working longer hours.
Update on beating the S & P 500 experiment
- Jun 6, 2012 - 4:35:46 PM
We are now in the home stretch. So far, sixteen days of the challenge have
been completed. I cannot claim that my
hypothetical portfolio is performing significantly better than the S & P
500. If I were to add trading
commissions to my portfolio, I suspect the return of my portfolio and the S
& P 500 index would be in a dead heat.
Beating the S & P 500 experiment portfolio
- May 13, 2012 - 7:48:03 PM
I have created the hypothetical portfolio. I used some optimization tools in Excel to create
this portfolio. I made sure that not one
of the stocks is more than 20% of the portfolio. I did
not use any technical analysis this time, so I will save the technical analysis
for another project.
The securities selected for beating the S & P 500 experiment
- May 8, 2012 - 6:10:51 PM
I have selected the stocks for my upcoming experiment. Previously, I forgot to mention that there will be no short positions in this fictitious portfolio, and there will be seven stocks. I believe that seven stocks is a good number for this unique experiment.

- May 4, 2012 - 9:02:23 AM
This past semester, I learned an important lesson. It is tough to beat the market. I tracked the performance of my portfolio against the holy grail of U.S. stock benchmarks. While I did not exceed expectations, there is no reason to give up.
