Dr Tar:The second part - a non-indexed investment vehicle is just dumb? Well that seems like a rather biased opinion... And that is because? Please elaborate on how investing in all/any single non-indexed investment is dumb..........such asa US Treasury / or investment grade Bondsome gold or silverany individual stockSwiss francsREITShorting lean hogs and going long coffeeI would agree with all those investments. What I don´t agree with is to hire some professional adviser at a cost of X% of portfolio assets so he/she can put your money into very costly managed mutual funds or worse, a fund of fund of very expensive managed mutual funds.Nor would I agree with a manager who will put your money into individual stocks and bonds and then procede to turn your portfolio over X amount of times per year to pad his/her pockets with commissions, Wall Street´s with spreads, and Uncle Sam´s with short-term capital gains taxes.
