Greek to Me

Vivian--Terrific explanation of Alpha and Beta.  I learned some new things from your tutorial.  Also, the worm is turning for me. I made a whopping 2.6% on my portfolio in 2014 (which is 52% stocks and 48% fixed income).  This year in the first quarter, I'm on a 14% annual return track, with things looking better every day.

Dear Vivian,

Here are some of the things that my stock proceeds will be used for (first home run since New Tel and that required exquisite timing by you):

Help son no. 1 one get econ Ph.D.

Help son no. 2 with Italian major at Yale

Help with melanoma detection and spider bite detection research between grants.

Grazie mille per il suo aiuto


Love your comments on ETFs. As a person who likes to dive in when others are in a panic, I can't imagine my anger if I'd had an ETF Buy "busted" after the fact! "Integrity" of markets indeed!

Glad to see that you find Sidoti & Co. research worth noting.
