I don't mess with options due to how confusing and complicated they are. 

Income stream is when I don't want the volatility of the market and just wish to live on that stream.  Their returns are not as great as stock picking accurately.

I do ignore analysts and the thousands of charts that will literally leave you dumbfounded and panicky at every movement.


I agree with what your saying about learning from super investors.  I think your quoting what they said which is great when your rich and become a sage to the rest of the world but it's not any different than when you go buy a car.  Make sure to get a deal and not a lemon.  I agree what they say does make you a better investor I am just clearing up to a understandability of real world application- car and a lemon.

Mixed feelings is right.  The one thing I have noticed about stock buybacks is that the CEO-management are not able to come up with better ideas and therefore resort to what they learned in Business Class 101.  Which is when you don't know what your doing and your investors are screaming increase the dividend and announce buyback of shares.  AAPL lost it's mojo after Jobs and Tim Cook is no visionary, I see Apple's dominance coming to an end and losses will accrue, which at that time at their worst I will invest when they replace the CEO with a visionary. The point is buybacks and increasing dividends to me show lack of innovation in that company and their stocks will continue to loose value.


See prior post. Thanks.


Thanks. If you don't speculate you hate yourself when you missed that next Google, or Apple. I remain steadfast in that pick a good one and limit yourself to a max of one to two.
