This year I decided to invest my annual pension fund contribution on my own without input from this group. Including accumulated earnings and 2013's contribution and my decision to sell some slacker mutual funds I had about $400,000 to redeploy. I thought it was too overwhelming for my own approahc since 20087 of purchascing individual stocks so I picked two mutual funds. Already they are down over a coool $20,000 in only qa few days. Oh well. The professionals seem to be able to lose money more quickly than I can.
There will be more redelopyments this year as I inch closer to retirement (likely 5 years our)_ and so I invite input. One non-tax deferred portfolio that was all bonds has had redemptions and now has $100,000 needing redelpoyment. I am thinking of dividend stocks.
