Having been a fool for over 3 months, I have now been
placed in charge of my mothers $100,000. that has lost
about 15-20% in principal over the last 15 months but pays roughly 5-8% in dividends that she needs to pay bills with. I cannot seem to find a fool folio that will deliver this type of returns. However, I think that by splitting the folio between growth & income stocks it will balance out and preserve eroding principal.
