Thanks, subguy.But I read way back in the 1970s that the "optimum" way to invest in stocks is to margin up to 20%. Would have to be a stock market disaster to be hurt.Have been on margin ever since. Margin expense is deductible!It has allowed more diversification.I "Try" to keep it below 20%. But had a few margin calls early in the game, but have had none for more than 20 yrs.If I can borrow margin money @ 6 & 3/4% interest and make 7%, 9%, !5%, 90%, etc., it's fun trying and keeps my mind nimble - I hope!
