Happy One Year Anniversary to Me

Well, the One Year Anniversary of the newest iteration of TheAcsMan is coming up soon tomorrow.

For the very, very few that have been following along ever since 2007 or so with Szelhamos.com and then the original TheAcsMan.com, you may recall that both shuttered on the one year anniversary date.

OptionToProfit.com went on for 5 years, but this time around, it’s time to revert to old ways again and TheAcsMan comes to its end in a few weeks tomorrow upon the occasion of its first anniversary.

But, in the works is LEAPToProfit.com which reflects where I always knew I would be eventually headed with my investing habits.

That means less trades, even less writing than I do now.

Just less, but at this phase, adding a couple of a percent onto returns of a Buy and Hold portfolio works for me, just as actively trading worked for a younger me.

For anyone interested, here is an article that lays out the strategy. It was written a number of years ago, so the names of the companies may be different in 2018, but the idea is the same.

It is 5 years old and I’ve refined my rules a bit, but if you’re ready to just sit back and not worry about market declines or missing out on rallies, this is the way to go when you are at the capital preservation stage of life.

So, as tonight ushers in the New Year, thanks for sticking with me one more year.

See you soon.

Is There Such a Thing as ‘The Right Side of History’?

This article first appeared on the Council on Foreign Relations site. President Trump delivered a new “ National Security Strategy of the United States of America” (NSS) last week, and it elicited a mountain of comment.

Trump Bans CDC From Using These Seven Words

Fetus? You can’t say “fetus”?
