I have owned some ofr their mutual funds and also seen their management skills up front. The company is an impressive compilation of intelligent individuals. Thqat seems likely to bring high profits in the future.

You should check out DTV. I had been mulling over buying some shares and I did so yesterday. I sold some BRK.B to make the purchase. I had been eyeing it for awhile now. The numbers are pretty impressive. The thing that sticks out the most is that in the last 5 years they have repurchased 40% of the outstanding share float. I can see why Berkshire took a stake in it. I made a new profile valuemoneygreen. It only has companies I actually like at reasonable prices. The profile doesnt have all of the b.s. picks I make on my valuemoney profile. We like much of the same stuff so I thought you might like to know about it.

I am slow to reply because I don't seem to be reviewing responses to my pitches well. Still find DTV interesting?

I do but true be told I sold my stake in RL and currently only own WFC. I like DTV but I personally would not want it to make up more than 5% of my total assets. I understand they are buying back stock cheaply and issueing debt at a low interest level to do so but debt is starting to get to levels where I begin to get a little worried. That is between 4 and 5 times EBIT. I mean it isn't quite there yet but getting close. And I definately liked it better when it was trading closer to $46 like when I picked it on my CAPS page.

Risk adjusted I think I like the XLF the best right now to beat the market over the next two years. Its top 8 holdings makes up 50% of the etf. It gives you the biggest names and still keeps you diversified enough in my opinion. Of course I like the financials to outperform these next two years but also liked it last year to outperform and it didn't disappoint last year. I have been heavy in the financials ever since the financial crisis. BAC made most of my gains in my portfolio last year. My total return was over 68% last year. I just hope for 10% on average each year though. If I can average that over my lifetime I will be happy. I would suggest adding XLF to your watchlist on CAPS at least.
